HTC Incredible :: Constant Rom Switchers

Aug 17, 2010

To the people that switch Roms fairly often: What are you using to get settings and apps back as painlessly as possible? I was told titanium donated version will install all your apps back with the press of one button is that right? I been using web installer with Appbrian.. its helpful but still a pain in the ass since I have a lot of apps. I installed the first Froyo leak, and now I been using some of adrynalynes' roms.. but its just a pain in the ass if your doing full wipes to make installs are clean

Android :: Useful Switchers / Warning For Users / Message To Devs

Sep 10, 2009

Recently the Dev of the AWESOME app "Useful Switchers" made a change to his free app.If you update the app now through the marketplace, it will turn it in to a "trial version" which will expire Sept 14 2009. You will then have to get it for $0.99. Note that it won't be a better version, or a pro version, it will be the same thing. Here is what the Dev (turmeric on these forums I believe) says in the updated description in the marketplace:"Now I develop new version 2.0. If you donate, big thanks for support. I really need some money. I especially make smaller price ($0.99). This version is trial now (expired Sep 14 2009)."As you might imagine the reaction in the comments has been very harsh, and a lot of people are reducing their rating for the app.Before anyone attacks me (or others) with suggestions that we are freeloaders, pirates, or mean for trying to stop the Dev from profiting from his hard work, let me be clear; I _completely_ support any Dev's right to make money from their app. If it is valuable to me, I am even more than willing to pay for it. We aren't talking about a lot of money, it's only 99 cents, and useful switchers is a great app (I use it all the time, every day).

Most people in the MP comments are upset not that the Dev wants to make money, but that it seems like a tricky, underhanded way to do it. The app they have used will suddenly expire after an update. It seems almost like a bait and switch. Yes, the Dev does explain in the app description what will happen when you update, so users who updated without reading it really only have themselves to blame (Caveat Emptor after all). The Dev maybe could have gone about this better, perhaps making it clearer (large words in bold) that the app would change to trial software after the update, and maybe he could have extended the trial period (it ends VERY shortly), but still, it's there to read.
My_ problem with the Dev's actions are really more a problem with the Marketplace in general, and how Google and phone carriers are handling it. You see, I'm in Canada, and apparently in Canada we can't be trusted with our own money, so we can't have access to paid apps (yes, that's me being snarky). Many other countries are in the same boat.So, turmeric, I'm talking to you now (and all other Devs who might read this); Your app is great, and I would GLADLY pay for it... but I can't. Once it becomes a paid app I will not even be able to see it in the marketplace. Even if I were to send you a donation now, if I update the app it will stop working on Sept 14 and I will be screwed.

Some will argue that it's still the Dev's right to change it to a paid app, and boo hoo so sorry, too bad for me. Well, i agree 100%. I agree the dev has the right, but there is something else to consider... customer service and his reputation as a dev.There are LOTS of users who, if they update, will lose the app on Sept 14, and not be able to get the paid version because they can't access paid apps. These people are lost potential customers for _future_apps when they can eventually access paid apps. You will turn they away.So, what are the alternatives? Do what many other Devs have done. Make a free version and a paid "pro" version so those without access to paid apps can still get a very useful app. Or, if you don't like that, and insist on making the app a paid app only, surely there must be a way (as with software for computers) to use an unlock key to get the full version? that way users could download a free "locked" version from the store, and pay the dev separately through his web site for a key that could be typed manually into the app to unlock it.

HTC Incredible :: Virtuous In Constant Sync

Sep 21, 2010

I have been very happily using a Sense 2.2 Lite ROM since August, but what the heck. I've heard good things about Virtuous.I cleared the cache and hard all data since this is a new ROM. Loaded fine. Titanium backup etc.I disabled weather updates. Turned off all google updates. Anything I could find.I still see the sync icon in the top bar spinning. If I go into Accounts & Sync I can hit "Cancel Sync" and it stops, even though I have no idea what it is trying to sync.I restored my older ROM but would love to give Virtuous a shot again.Any suggestions on a setting a may be overlooking?

HTC Incredible :: Constant Sync Icon

Nov 6, 2010

I've been having a problem for the past few weeks with my Incredible being in a constant state of sync. I can tell this by the sync icon spinning around and around in the bar up top. There's a rouge app calling for sync somewhere, how can I find it? I've already tried to obvious method of going into settings > accounts and sync and disabling literally everything in there. Facebook, Weather, Google, everything is turned off. Another app somewhere is using sync. The only way to get it to stop is to hit the cancel sync button on that page and then it goes away for a few hours and then it comes right back. I'm sure this is a huge battery suck. Is there an app that monitors other app usage with sync or something?

HTC Incredible :: Have A Constant VM Indicator In My Notifications Bar / What To Do?

Aug 24, 2010

I have a constant VM indicator in my notifications bar....Google Voice VM indicator problems

Google Voice software has an issue where the software is telling the phone I have voice mails, or the phone is telling the software I do. I don�t know which but its clearly a bug.

I�ve only been able to temporarily fix by factory resetting my phone. I do not have any unread/unheard voice mails, on my phone OR online. When I press the notifications (which is currently telling me I have 3 Voice mails) it dials google voice, where it tells me I have none.

Its just annoying.

Any idea on what the cause is, and if I can get rid of it. I cant imagine I am the only one with this issue.

HTC Incredible :: Remove Constant GPS / Location Icon?

Aug 27, 2010

I was wondering if it was possible to remove the persistent location icon that takes up space on the status bar. It doesn't make sense to me that the location icon ALWAYS has to be there, whether you enable GPS tracking or not, to let you know one way or another. Especially since the Motorola Droid didn't require this.

Also, it would be nice if the battery indicator could be changed to a percentage. Right now, I have an app - Battery Indicator - that tells this, but it places an icon in the left side of the status bar, needlessly taking up space as well.

It would be killer for me if I could get rid of these 2 superfluous status bar icons and leave room for other stuff.

I'm running Third Wave, Hydra Kernel 1, but I'm guessing a separate ROM would be necessary to do what I want. MetaMorph doesn't work for me, for what it's worth.

HTC Incredible :: Constant Rebooting After Installing Recent Leaked OTA

Jul 20, 2010

As titled, I installed the leaked OTA tonight for the 720p recorder,boot animation, etc.It did reboot 3 times initially right after the update but I was expecting that.I waited about 30 minutes for good measure and then restored all of my apps and data with Titanium. Ever since then my phone has been rebooting itself for no reason. I have noticed that it does it more when I am launching certain programs. For a while it was just rebooting one right after the other and the home screen never came available, it just had a Loading... notification. Once it finally did load the home screen it looked like the Weatherbug was struggling to load and as soon as I click on it, the phone shuts off.I uninstalled the app and it hasn't been rebooting as much but for a phone that has never ever had one problem I'm kind of inconvenienced by this.

General :: Constant Notification And 4.2 / 3

Sep 23, 2013

Apps like Takser for example, it has a persistent notification. Now IIRC, that allows the app to stay always running and not be killed by Android. If I uncheck Show notifications in the App info section, does it have the same effect?

Meaning, will it still stay a persistent app and not be able to be closed by Android? I have a Pebble and I have not had any issues with the app since I have done this.

HTC Desire :: Suspend Constant 1-2% CPU Usage

Nov 12, 2010

I've had System Panel's monitoring feature enabled overnight and I've noticed something using the CPU all night at between 1 and 2%. I have managed to track it down to a process called 'Suspend'. I just wondered if this was normal for whatever this process is? I would have thought the CPU should be at 0% if I'm not using the phone.

Sprint HTC Hero :: Constant Freezing On CM6

Sep 23, 2010

My phone will freeze completely at random. It's happened two times so far. Once in the camera app and the second time on the home screen after I tried turning the screen off. I am using the most recent version of Cyanogen. It just does not work, at all. No input on the screen or the buttons. I have had to remove the battery both times. Is this a bug or something else. The home screen blacks out but the status bar is still seen. This happens at random too and it reappears whenever it wants to.

I would like to insert only the numerical values if possible, any easy way to do this?

General :: YouTube App Constant Buffering?

Dec 31, 2013

I got this weird issue on all my devices where after a certain point the video freezes, buffers for ~8 seconds, plays for a couple and repeat. This is not video specific and changing the quality does not fix this, it just makes the problem appear later on. In HQ quality, after about 1:45 minutes of playing flawlessly it starts buffering the whole damn time. SQ quality can play up to 3-4 minutes before any issues arise.

This is on a broad range of devices, both mine and those of friends. My own Samsung Galaxy S2 running CM10.1 and Cube U30GT running CM10, but had the issue on stock, and a stock Galaxy Note and HTC Hero 2.

Other info. It's not network related. Happens on both wifi and 3g and on different connections/ISPs. My own Internet connection clocks up to 20mbps and has no problem playing any YT video on my PC. Other "streaming" video stuff work great. plays great as does dailymotion. Other players, other than the default YT app, have no issues playing videos even on HQ. YT through the browser works fine but somehow doesn't let me switch to HQ and the "UI" generally feels bad. Feedly (which is great btw), has a sort of plugin that uses the YT app to play videos natively. Any videos played in the feedly app, using this "plugin" play great even in HQ, which is weird. I've tried reinstalling, uninstalling, stalling, killing, maiming, clearing data+cache, completely wiping the devices and sacrificing firstborns to Lucifer.

This feels like a caching issue of the youtube app. It feels like it starts caching up to a point (playing great in the process) and at some points cache fills up and starts deleting in order to make space to cache further. That leads to the pause and buffering of the video.

HTC EVO 4G :: No WiFi Connection - Process In Constant Loop

Aug 3, 2010

This is my first problem with my EVO, so I'm not sure if it's been addressed. When I enable wifi I see:

- "Obtaining address..."
- "Remembered, secured with WEP"

Then repeats this process over and over, and the phone heats up quite a bit. I installed the most recent update, and am waiting for Froyo. Is this something that's been solved with 2.2, or is it another issue?

Motorola Droid X :: Constant SBF - Applications After Flashing

Would you say it's a huge hassle to get back all of your apps after flashing? Im just curious to see what methods people use to shortcut their way back to the way they like their phones most. I would assume tibku would be your best friend here. But are there people out there who get a kick out of un/reinstalling all the time? I just wanna know how people do their thing with the SBF.

HTC Droid Eris :: Constant Syncing Of Ported 2.1 Rom

Mar 27, 2010

I don't have a droid eris, i have a my touch 3g with a ported 2.1 Eris rom. As far as I know the changes are minimal so hopefully you guys can help me. In a nutshell, the phone is constantly syncing with something. It still happens when I Taskill mostly everything, and i tried to use Droidwall to work out what it was but my results were a bit stuffy, i couldn't accurately determine what it was. Facebook perhaps? i have it set to sync every 8 hours. So basically what iam asking is does anyone know what it could be and how I may sort it out? Failing that, does anyone know of an app that will tell me exactly what's using the connection at the time?

I got tired of the issues with the stock rom (random calls I did not make, phone lockups, battery issues) 2.1 with recovery and root, so I decided last night to reflash it with stock and use the radioactive froyo firmware 1.7.1 from SDX. Everything was fine last night. This morning I've had it lock up on me 3 times. Every time it happens after I hit the end button to turn off the screen. The screen doesn't come back up. I just want a working phone.

Motorola Droid :: Constant Roaming After Update

Sep 8, 2010

I am using a Motorola Droid 1 and have run into a problem. My phone is constantly roaming (the little triangle in the status bar is visible) and I cannot program or activate my phone.

This started after this process:
My phone was rooted, Stock 2.2 with superuser (via clockwork) I accidentally applied the OTA Adobe flash update and became unrooted. I attempted to flash a rooted 2.2 with adobe with RSD Lite and loaded the newest baseband

My phone began not working at this point. I get this message when I try to activate via *228 or *22899: "The number or code you have entered is incorrect"......"Message 7 Switch 441"

I tried manually programming via ##PROGRAM, but to no avail.

I have flashed back to 2.0.1, 2.1, 2.2 every version of baseband I could find, but I still am roaming. Under phone status, my network is "Unknown"

Finally, here is what I have right now:

Model number: Droid
Firmware version: 2.1-update1
Baseband version: C_01.3E.03P
Kernel version: 2.6.29-omap-g7fa8788android-build@apa26 #1
Build Number: ESE81

I talked to a verizon tech support guy and he got me as far as being able to make calls on my "unknown" network and roaming status. He thought that he fixed it after that, so I just gave up on that conversation....
