HTC Hero :: Music Stuck In Locked Screen & TasKiller / Fix It?

Jul 31, 2009

When I wake my Hero up, it goes into the lock screen which you have to drag down to unlock.

For some reason, 1 song from my music is always there along with the music buttons (back, pause, forwards) yet pressing any of them doesn't do anything. Even if I play a different song. it will stay the same. Any fixes?

Regarding TasKiller, I usually press the red button at the top to kill all, this then brings up a random screen (mine now brings up the HTC Magic OS desktop) and I have to press the Home button to return to normal screen. Does this happen to anyone else?

Sprint HTC Hero :: Recharging Battery - Want To Make Sure Not Killing

Dec 31, 2009

I know that it used to kill batteries when you would recharge it before it was low and needed to be charged. I also heard it was bad to take an item off of the recharger before it was at 100%. Does any of that hold true with today's batteries, meaning the one that is in the Sprint Hero? Can I recharge it at night if the battery is at 48% and have it not hurt the battery or it's life? Just wondering because I have a charge at work and home and wait till it is in need of charging. That is sort of a pain, I would rather turn the phone off at night and charge it and have a fresh and fast phone in the morning.

HTC Incredible :: Apps Still Running After Killing

Aug 30, 2010

I just installed Froyo tonight and reinstalled my apps and use Advanced Task Killer free and when I kill my apps it seems as though I always have some running or they will start running without me doing anything. I have News and Weather, Slacker, Voice search, and Skype mobile running and when I click on KILL selected apps It leaves Voice search running. If I click Kill again Slacker, News and weather and voice search are running. Why are these apps running when I'm not actually running them? Any ideas?

Samsung Captivate :: Anyone's Phone Killing Itself?

Jul 18, 2010

I bought mine at around 1 and have used it regularly with no slow down. I installed LauncherPro when I first got it, and it worked perfect. However, a few minutes ago, my phone just went black, aside from my topmost bar. I pressed the power button and nothing, so I took my battery out, and started it up again...and the same thing happened: black after a few seconds. It's happened 6 times in a row now. What do I do?

Android :: Finish Not Killing Activity

Apr 12, 2009

I've got an application that has (among other things) three Activities, let's call them A, B, and C. A is the main navigation point for the entire application, and launches B and C directly using startActivity(). They work fine that way. However, when I call C from inside B, I get a strange problem. The code for launching Activity C is exactly the same in both places. The problem is the hardware back button. In the emulator, it takes two presses of the back button in order to close Activity C and come back to B. On a G1, it takes 3 or 4 presses. Upon seeing this, I implemented the usual suspects in C - onPause(), onStop(), and onDestroy(), and onResume() in B. When I press the back button from C and it doesn't work, I get onPause(), onStop(), onDestroy () - in that order, but nothing happens. When it works (on press 3 or 4 on the G1), I get onPause(), then onResume() in B, then onStop() and onDestroy().

I've tried catching the key press of the back button and calling finish (), but that doesn't make a difference. Has anyone seen this? To pre-empt some questions: All C does is display some data. There are no threads or any other special resources that C might have an active handle to that's preventing it from closing. But out of curiosity, if it did, how would I detect that? Any ideas for further diagnostics here?

HTC Incredible :: Camera Killing Battery

Jun 2, 2010

Will take the past three days for example. Monday i took ONE picture and all day under menu>settings>about phone>battery>battery use..... it said the camera app used 94% of my battery and that was after a days use.

Tuesday then rolls around and i didn't use my camera and i had charged my phone monday night but whats weird is it still said the camera app used about 87% of my battery and my battery died QUICK that day.

Today is wednesday and so far the only time i used my camera was when i quickly opened the bar code scanner app but i didn't even scan a code i just opened it for maybe 3 seconds and today it says the camera used 47% of my battery.

Is my camera app staying open even though under running services it isn't there and neither is it there when i use task killers such as "Android system Info"

Android :: Saving Service Killing Without StartForeground

Nov 20, 2009

I am running a background Android Service as VoIP Framework which provides different VoIP services to different Android applications, (VoIP call, Video Call, etc). The service establishes a network connection with the Server(Service Provider) and does some initial handshake before it can start providing service to the Android applications, that's why though of starting the service on BOOT_COMPLETED event.

The problem is when the service gets started on BOOT_COMPLETED event, before even it finishes the initial network connection with server and handshaking, it gets killed by the system. I have tried using setForeground which improves the behavior a bit but still gets killed mid-way. I am working with old version 1.5 r3 of SDK and hence, cannot use "startForeground". Is there a way out or another alternative available with SDK 1.5 r3?

Motorola Droid X :: LauncherPro Keeps Killing Widgets

Sep 21, 2010

All of those with Launcher Pro Plus, check out the update. I bought the Pure Messenger widget strictly to have an integrated Facebook/Twitter feed. I am strictly an idle browser of both feeds - that is, I don't take them very seriously and just scroll through them occasionally. Consequently, I have no need for advanced tools, just an updating feed that I can peruse once in a while. Now LPP has a "friends" widget that is not only a free update to the app, but is faster and smoother than the Pure Messenger widget.

Also, LPP now has customizable rows/columns so you can set as many rows/columns as you want on the homescreens. This is super convenient because I always thought there should have been 5 columns on the homescreens.

Motorola Droid :: Stopping BB V0.4 From Killing LauncherPro?

Jul 25, 2010

I think, because of it's memory management, BB v0.4 keeps killing LauncherPro on me so that when I go back to my homescreen, LauncherPro needs to reload itself. Is there anyway to specifically exclude LauncherPro from being killed by BB? I know it's not another task killed b/c I don't have any others installed.

HTC EVO 4G :: Apps Running Starting Them / Killing Battery

Jun 13, 2010

I have an EVO and I have a problem with it. I downloaded the app Advanced Task Killer to take care of apps running in the background. However sometimes when I pull it up I find that things like Sprint Navigation, Qik, Voice Dialer, and sometimes others are running without me pulling them up. My question is, how do I keep these apps from doing this, because they kill my battery when they come on and I don't know it?

Android :: Application Killing - Expending Power

Nov 11, 2009

It seems to me that all of these much-touted app killing programs are pretty much worthless. I kill all sorts of stuff I never even opened, and 5 minutes later, it's back again. I'm probably expending more power killing programs than I would if I just let the phone sit idle. Am I mistaken? What good are the app killing programs if the programs keep coming back? I'm starting to wonder if the hyped "run multiple applications at once" bit is more of a drawback than anything. Edit: Would there be any harm in removing the Footprints, Twitter, Gmail and Market programs that came with the phone that I don't use yet keep popping up?

Android :: Multitasking / Task Killing Apps

Feb 17, 2010

I am considering getting a Motorola Milestone, which should ship with Android 2.something.I have a Nokia, and I really like the multitasking of the Symbian environment. How is it going to be different with Android? Is it a true multitasking os like Symbian or is it not, like the iphone? How do I switch from one application to another? Is there a button which shows all running apps? I read comments that, on some phones, switching from the web browser to another app and then back to the browser causes the page to reload from scratch. Is this still true or was it a limitation of older versions? Is there a task killer? I read very contradicting opinions on this, but I must say I do not understand why I should leave open an app I don't need, and how much an app left open uses system resources (battery life and RAM): I would have thought that its impact on system performance might have been minimal, but still > 0, right? Then why not close it altogether? Or am I missing something here?

HTC Desire :: Task Killer Not Killing Apps

Jul 29, 2010

I have tried 3 different task killers but each one do not seem to be killing the task even though it says it is. When i open the "killed" apps, they open to the last screen before they were killed. I am using the froyo ROM. On 2.1, when the apps were killed and then re-opened them, it always went back to the main screen.
