Android :: Overriding Home Button For Car Home Replacement Application

May 19, 2010

I have been working on a replacement for the stock Car Home app for a bit, and I am completely stumped on how to override the Home button so that my app will be brought back to the foreground whenever the phone is docked. This is the way that Car Home works, so there must be a way. It seems that BroadcastReceivers won't work, because the intent that is broadcast whenever the Home button is pressed will still cause the default homescreen app to launch; I cannot prevent it. I can override the Home button from within my app, but that does me no good since this needs to work when the user is outside my app. Car Home also does not do anything weird like set itself as the default homescreen app while it's running (I checked the logcat to make sure).
I've been really beating my head against the wall on this. Does anyone have any ideas, or can you at least point me in the right direction?

Android :: Home Button On Samsung Galaxy Tablet Is Causing My Activity To Re-launch

Nov 22, 2010

On my droid phone, I get what I consider a proper pause/stop/resume/restart sequence when the home button is pressed and I then select my application. However, I'm testing on a new Samsung Galaxy tablet and when I select my application after having pressed the home button, a new activity is being launched. I do not understand why the behavior is different on the Galaxy. Any ideas? I have removed orientation config changes in the manifest, so it's not that.

Samsung Fascinate :: Car Home Replacement / Removal

Nov 17, 2010

Just picked up a Fascinate for my wife and as we all know it's infested with Bing (until the 2.2 update). I have installed google search etc and its mostly running like her Eris was BUT the car home app that pops up when you place the phone in the car mount is the Samsung Bing app. The icons point to VZ navigator etc and she is like WTF I can't get the nav to work. Anyone know the easiest way (here come the "root the phone man....." comments) to disable the car home or replace it will the stock google one?

Samsung Moment :: Home Replacement Apps

Feb 7, 2010

The Android Applications forum keeps misleading me because people talk about apps and features that aren't available in Android 1.5, so I thought I'd ask the other Moment owners about home replacement apps. I think I'd like something, but I'm really hesitant to pay for one that I may not like, and I also worry that I'd not really understand all I could do with one and therefore not truly appreciate it.

I've also seen very mixed reviews on nearly every home replacement app.

So I'm curious about the opinions of other Moment owners on these home replacement apps and also if there are any good places for thorough information on them.

Samsung Galaxy S : Replacement - Get An Official SGS Housing?

Aug 20, 2010

I bought am SGS off eBay, and despite it supposedly being in "as new" condition, it appears to have been dropped more time than Jordan's knickers, resulting in numerous dents and bashes...so not really "as new" afterall

Apparently I can't do anything about this through eBay, so I need to keep the phone, so really just trying to restore it to a good condition. Does anyone know where I might be able to get an official SGS housing? I've searched all over but have had no joy so far!

General :: Galaxy S3 Home Button Lag (S Voice Is Disabled)?

Sep 6, 2013

My problem with my s3 is the home button, when i'm on a app ( doesn't matter wich one) and i press the home button, it takes like 4-5 seconds before i see the home screen, and then it has to redraw itself. I already searched here but all i coild find was the animation set to 0, 5 and disable-ing tje s voice command.(what i already did)

I tried removing every home screen and put 1 app in it. Didn't work.I didnt try factory reset , because i dont want to lose all my data.. ( even tough i could backup it somewhere)

Samsung Galaxy S :: Brown Tint On Screen After LED Replacement

Nov 11, 2010

I purchased my phone in October 2010 from Bangalore, India ... After a week of use a white line developed on the display...

I took it to the service centre who said that it was a display defect and agreed to replace the screen ... But they said that the screen was out of stock ...

After waiting almost a month i got a call from them saying replacement screens have arrived ... I immediately went and got the screen changed ... After receiving the phone back i noticed that the screen seemed kinda dull with a brown tint to it at minimum brigtness ....

When i asked the service centre guy he asked me to use the phone for a while and then it will be fine ... I used the phone for two days and took it back after reading several such tint issues on the web ...

Initially the service centre guys refused to change the screen saying that its normal. Luckily for me another customer came in with a galaxy s. I used his phone and showed the technician the brown tint issue. He then agreed to the fact that there was a brown tint and replaced the screen once again...

The new screen also has the same issue ... I had no other option but to take it and leave ...

The whole fun of buying a great phone has been ruined by the technical issues and poor customer service ....

Samsung I7500 : Replacement Housing For My Galaxy - Battery Cover Scratched Up?

Apr 14, 2010

Any idea where I can buy a replacement housing for my Galaxy. Works fine but an accident had left it scratched up and missing the charger port cover. So basically I want to fit a whole new shell on the thing. Screen is scratch-free, but battery cover scratched up and the bit of plastic holding the charger flap snapped so it will need a whole shell. Looked everywhere! An online Samsung repair place wants me to send it in but can't give me a price.

Samsung Moment :: Can Remap The Home Button?

Nov 18, 2009

I downloaded and installed the Lock 2.0 free trial program. Upon install, when I clicked on the "Home" button on my Samsung Moment, a pop appeared with 3 choices:

Complete Action Using:
1) Home (go to home)
2) Lock icon (meaning to lock the phone) - also with a warning - do not use this as default - you had (sic) been warned.
3) a checkbox to use either choice 1 or 2 as the default always.

This made me curious. First of all if I accidentally remapped the Home button the Lock app, how would I be able to remap it to the default "Home" action? Looked in settings and do not see how I can remap Home button. I don't like how a 3rd part app can intercept the Home button and yet I can't figure out how to undo the damage if I accidentally remapped the Home button to the 3rd party app. Anyone here know if this is possible to restore the Home button if you mess up and a 3rd party app maps it by default?

Samsung Captivate :: Home Button Goes To Launcherpro.com

Oct 21, 2010

So I searched and hope this isn't a repeat thread. So I never upgraded to the new version of launcher pro and just about ten minutes ago I hit my home button and it automatically takes me to launcherpro.com and says that my current version is expired and to download the new one. Problem is I can't get to the market because my home button doesn't work. So all that works is my browser, 4 physical buttons, and I can pull down my notification bar. So I really need to figure out a way to get to the market or switch to touch wiz.

Samsung Captivate :: Have To Use Home Button To Answer Phone

Oct 25, 2010

When I receive a call on my Captivate, I have to use the home button to answer. There is a big pretty button on the left that has a green dot with a phone icon that you would think would answer it but it doesn't. Is there a setting somewhere, or a fix for this? Red button on the right with the phone icon hangs up, so you would think the green button would answer.
