HTC Incredible :: Need A Comprehensive Guide / Glossary On Rooting DINC

Jun 30, 2010

Looking for somebody to point me in the right direction whether it's on this forum or not. I'm very savvy with technology and have been a part of the jailbreak movement since the beginning. I just keep seeing a lot of foreign terms here. I keep reading threads in their entirety but I can't seem to find something that brings it all together as a process.

Samsung Captivate :: Complete Guide To Flashing Froyo And Rooting In 2.2

Oct 23, 2010

I have read a ton of articles on this site, XDA, and other about doing a pre-official upgrade to Froyo on my captivate and then rooting it. This is officially the correct way to do it. The easiest way I found. And of course I am not responsible if you mess your phone up in the process.

Step One:
Download all the drivers you can find for the captivate. Install them without plugging the phone in, and then plug the phone in and let windows pick up any additional drivers. (Plug the phone in and let it find drivers, then mount it and let it find more if possible.)Driver Links: 64 bit Windows. Download Samsung Galaxy S USB Driver for Windows x64 Driver for Windows XP X64 / Windows Vista64 / Windows 7 x64 - Softpedia 32 bit Windows. Download Samsung Galaxy S USB Driver for Windows x86 Driver for Windows XP / Windows Vista / Windows 7 - Softpedia More Drivers.http://downloadcenter.samsung .com/ content/SW/201007/20100716004231953/SGH-i897_Captivate_USB_Drivers_5_02_0_2.zip **ALSO** Go ahead and download Samsung Kies. It will provide more drivers...4.0 inch SUPER AMOLED Display, Layar Reality Browser, Android 2.1 OS, 1GHz CPU Speed, 5 Megapixel AF Camera, Music Player - Samsung I9000 - Infotainment - mobile phones | SAMSUNG

STEP TWO:
Open Kies and plug your captivate in. Let it go through the loading and discovering the phone and all that song and dance. Also, check and see if your firmware can be updated. It is really easy to get the update through Kies. If there is any kind of updates, go ahead and do it. Even if your phone is already rooted, upgrading to 2.2 is going to delete everything you have anyways.

STEP THREE:
After everything has updates and your drivers are installed, (Drivers being most important here) It is time to flash your captivate to androind 2.2. There is a very simple program called ODIN that will do this all for you. to prepare for this you will need this version of ODIN Multiupload.com - upload your files to multiple file hosting sites! download from and of these sources. You will also need to put your phone in debugging mode and change the USB setting to ask on connection. Download ODIN, and open it. You should see some blank boxes on the screen and two buttons at the bottom that say Start and Master Clear. This next series is important so do exactly as the directions say.
1) Plug the USB cable into the computer WITHOUT the phone plugged into it.
2) Make sure you have opened ODIN
3) Hold down BOTH the up and down volume buttons at the some time (Do not push the power button).
4) Count to 5 slowly and plug your USB cable into the phone while holding the buttons down still.
5) Download mode will pop up on your phone, it will have a green android guy on there and say very clearly that it is in download mode. YOU HAVE TO BE IN THIS MODE FOR IT TO WORK.
6) After that, in ODIN, one of the blank boxes should have something in it along the lines of COMM 4 or 3 or just anything in one of those blank boxes. Hit start.
**This process should only take about 5 minutes to do, if you are sitting there for half an hour something is wrong, go back and redo these steps.**
7) Let the phone do its thing. It will reboot and once it does, you are good to go and upgraded to 2.2

STEP FOUR:
Now it is time to root your 2.2 device, which is the easiest part of this. There very simple program to DL that will root your phone and enable side loading. Very easy to use.
1) Make sure your phone is set to ask on connection under the USB settings and debugging is on.
2) Download the software..[APP]SuperOneClick v1.5.1 (Root, Unroot, Enable Non-Market App, Get UNLOCK code) - xda-developers scroll all the way to the bottom of the post and download the latest version.
It should be Superoneclickv1.5.1-Shortfuse.zip*you may have to register for XDA but its free and has really good forums.
3) After the download is complete, run the .exe and follow the instructions.
Off the top of my head there should be a tab at the top of the program that says "Universal" and "Captivate" obviously make sure you are on the captivate tab. If you have to click "get unlock code" first then do so. unless you are experienced, just do the standard root and not the shell root. After this you will have Android Froyo 2.2 on your captivate and also have it rooted.

Motorola Droid :: Streaming Radio Guide

Dec 8, 2009

I've been using streamingradioguide.com to stream talk radio to my pc. You can pick a show and it will list all stations carrying it live at any particular time. Unfortunately most of the stream links are Flash. So I've searched for the station call letters in android apps and they're not there. The links from mobile stream center won't play either. Is there anything for Android that will search for call letters and play the stream?

Motorola Droid :: Best Phone For Rooting - Fuse?

Sep 5, 2010

This may not be the appropriate forum for this, but my wife has an upgrade available and I currently have a rooted Droid. We have Verizon and I'd like to make a smart decision about which phone to upgrade her line to. It seems like the Droid X has the best hardware, but with the Fuse issue with the bootloader, is this phone ever going to be as capable as an HTC Droid Incredible, just for an example? Maybe the Incredible is the best Verizon phone, taking root abilities into account. I just don't and I'm looking for opinions from all the experts that know far more about this than me. Do you think the X will overcome the issues outstanding right now?

At this point I have downloaded the required motorola driver, sbf file, and have rsd 4.6 on my computer. The issue is rsd does not display my phone. On an earlier version of rsd it did display my phone but I was getting an error so I downloaded 4.6 but now it does not.

Motorola Droid :: Comprehensive User Guide That Details Everything?

Nov 25, 2009

I've seen the DROID users guide online and of course the one that comes with the device. But there are a Lot of things missing and honestly I don't want to have to always "figure it out". Is there some comprehensive guide available that details everything? For example, I'm using a widget that came with the phone, I think its the Power Control widget. There is one control on there (looks like a Refresh icon). I have no clue what it does. Lastly, does anyone know if Moto, Google, Verizon has a feedback forum. I like the phone and it has some really cool features, but I have some feedback (positive of course) to help them improve it.

Motorola Droid :: Low Battery Issue After Rooting Phone

Nov 3, 2010

So I followed these instructions here: Guide to Rooting 2.2 for Windows and Linux

I did the RSD lite to put on the SP Recovery. Rebooted the phone, and it said "Low Battery 0%", I pulled the battery out and booted into the System Recovery. Put on the update.zip file, installed the update, and rebooted. It is still saying "Low battery 0%" and the system keeps force closing. When I try and go back to recovery mode I can't even mount the SD card.

Motorola Droid :: Wiping / Resetting And Rooting Phone?

Jun 27, 2010

my phone was running really slow. it lost that new phone feel. so i decided that i was going to wipe the phone and start fresh. once, i decided to do that, i then figured why the hell not and rooted the phone.

when i wiped/reset my phone i expected that everything would be gone. i did this by holding "x" and power and then chose to wipe from there. i also chose to wipe the cache partition too. well after i rebooted, i noticed my custom wallpaper and a bunch of applications were still installed on my phone??? the reason i wanted to do this was to get rid of everything and start fresh...but all these apps were still there. did i not wipe the phone correctly?

- next i installed sprecovery on my phone. that went fine.
- i then wiped it again and installed JRummys cyanogen remix 5.0.7.1.
- Right off the bat, my phone is running slower than ever. When exiting from an app by hitting the home screen, sometime i just get a blank screen that sits there for a few seconds before my icons pop up. what gives?.............

Motorola Droid : Complete Guide To Backup / All Of My Apps - System Data

Jul 2, 2010

I run the risk of getting flamed for this... but I deem it a worthy thread, as things are constantly changing. I haven't found an up-to-date thread that has satisfied me yet.

I recently joined the Android community with my purchase of the Moto Droid. After a few days, I became interested in the rooting process and gave it a go... upgrading to Froyo. There have been several ROMs I've tried out, but I'm very hesitant to try more due to backups.

Will somebody provide me (in words or a link) the best way to backup all of my applications and data when testing out a new ROM? I tried Titanium Backup (and even donated), yet I never have successfully restored from a backup. Some applications and system data restore, but a ton of apps don't install, and I have to re-enter my email accounts (and appropriate sync settings) every time. This and the number of apps it doesn't restore (especially Swype) makes it not worth messing around with.

I read something about Nandroid backup, but that just looked like it was a backup in case something went terribly wrong with a ROM or something of the sort. Also, it looked like in the Simply Stunning (ChevyNo1) 4.2, there was a built in backup script... but I'd like to be able to venture between ROMs.

I want to be able to backup all of my apps and system data (gmail accounts, sms, etc), install a new ROM, and reload all of my apps and data.

Motorola Droid :: [Guide] Change Notification/clock/pull Down Text Colors

Mar 1, 2010

There are a few ways to change the color of the clock, notification bar, and pull down menu.

Standard disclaimer: I take no responsibility for anything you do or screw up on your phone.

AdamZ has updated method A (now called Droid Customizer) and it now changes all notification colors. It will overwrite any other changes you have previously made to the services.jar and framework-res.apk files so the manual method is still useful for people who have already made changes and don't want to lose them.

A - [Release] Droid Customizer v1.0 *Updated 3/02* (edit 4/7/10: fixed this link)
If you are familiar with the installation process of the smoked glass themes then this is an option. Has 13 color options as well as 12 font options that you can use.

B - Manually (sorta) change everything. I did it this way because AdamZ's method in A wasn't out yet and I think the way described in method A might overwrite other changes you have made (not sure on that though)

This will probably look long with a lot of steps but it really isn't too complicated.

Prerequisits
Rooted
Android sdk installed and some familiarity with adb
adb info: Start Here | Root Your Droid

1 - Plug in your phone and don't mount the sd card.

2 - On your computer open a command prompt and navigate to the android sdk tools folder.

3 - Type these commands:
