It should be under your system settings (the Settings "app"), in the "Date & Time" subsection (which is near the bottom). Uncheck the "Automatic time zone" option and then select the correct one manually:

Indeed. Since you're rooted, I suggest you use the freeware Sytrant. It also allows you to choose which time server you wish to sync from as well as allowing a user to specify a daily interval at which the time can be updated automatically.

Hey tolomea. I couldn't find a widget that could do all that but I did find this app that can. World Watch is an advanced world clock for an editable list of locations around the world. Includes sunrise, sunset, dawn and dusk times for the current or a given calendar date. Also includes weather conditions and a 4-day forecast. I haven't used it since ...

When I go to my Date & time settings, there is option that says: Automatic - Use network-provided values. So, basing on this wording (also in other languages), I would say that automatic time is provided from your carrier. There are apps, that can sync your clock with GPS satellites or NTP servers.

Install WidgetLocker Lockscreen. It allows to add homescreen widgets on lockscreen. Update: HTC widgets can't be added to WidgetLocker, but third-party general widgets can be. So, install Beautiful Widgets app, first. It has exact HTC flip-clock alternative.

It's not possible to create a widget that updates that often, because it will suck your battery really quickly. There are many stopwatch apps available in the Play Store. Many of them have millisecond or decisecond accuracy, but I'm not aware of any that have an associated widget. These kind of high precision timers should only be needed on a case-to-case ...

There is an app called Holiday Alarm Disabler. I haven't tried it myself, but it has a pretty good rating at Androlib. QR Code for Holiday Alarm Disabler:

I assume you're referring to the HTC Sense clock widget that appears on the Home screen? It looks like this: If so, it's important to note that the location listed there is indicating what location the weather refers to, not the time. HTC's support site has an explanation of how to work with the widget, including editing settings. It sounds like you ...

After you install an app that takes over the Dock intent it will ask which one you wish to use as default. The one I use is called Gentle Alarm which has a nice Dock display and some additional alarm features. It is however a paid app. I know there are several free apps out there as well.

You could use WidgetLocker to add your favorite World clock widget to the lock screen. You can find these widgets by searching the Play Store.

I know about Android ICS that it uses a custom service called: NetworkTimeUpdateService. This service also implements a NTP time synchronization via the NtpTrustedTime singleton. In NtpTrustedTime the default NTP server is requested from the android system string source: final Resources res = context.getResources(); final String defaultServer = ...

I had a similar problem but on another device, though try if it can fix your problem this is the what I did: I opened the Terminal Emulator and typed: $ su # logcat Then I held 'Volume down' (a.k.a. Ctrl) and 'c' to stop the output. I scrolled a bit up in the output and found a line that said: E/SQLiteOpenHelper( 5231): Couldn't open alarms.db for ...

Night Clock works well for me (screenshot below), and there are probably plenty of others in the Market. A search for "big clock" turns up a fair number of hits that seem relevant.

It sounds like your clock is 4 minutes fast. Check to see if your phone is getting its time from the network (on Gingerbread, it's Settings/Date & Time, not sure about CM 7.2). If you are getting time from the network, try disabling automatic updates and set the time manually to a source like time.gov or time.is.

You can use an app called ClockSync, which fetches time from NTP servers and updates the device's date and time. Rooted users can make this app to update time at configurable interval.

If you have a rooted phone which I assume you do since you're on CM6, see this post detailing how to change the font of the clock on the lock screen. Basically you need to replace Clocktopia.ttf in the /system/fonts folder with your desired TTF font (remember to rename new font as Clocktopia.ttf) and reset permissions to be similar to the old file. If ...

You will need to research how to set this on Galaxy Nexus and Jelly Bean, but .. You are currently using "GMT -03:00, Brasilia Time", and this does not include Daylight Savings by default. You need to instead use (one of): America/Bahia America/Sao_Paulo These all use UTC -2:00 for DST. See: Wikipedia: Time in Brazil

As far as I know, every OS makes the change at the officially scheduled time for your timezone. This is different in different timezones, but if you've previously observed your Windows clock changing at a particular time, you'll see any other OS changing at the same time. The exact time is set by the government: programmers don't just pick a time they think ...

dotVezz has already commented that NTP is used. If so, then you can use ClockSync, which lets you set the NTP server. HOWEVER, you need to sync manually. Automatic sync is supported only with ROOTED devices. ClockSync synchronizes device system clock with atomic time from Internet via NTP (Network Time Protocol). Useful if provider doesn't support ...

I'm guessing here, because you're missing some crucial information in your question, but... The clock has been completely redesigned in Android 4.4. Here's a comparison I found on in a post on Android Police. You won't be able to change it on the stock clock. However, you can easily find yourself an alternate clock in the Play Store. (Here's just two ...

That should be the correct approach. As you noted, time sync needs a source -- so setting up a NTP Server on the PC will provide this source. Now you need to have some NTP client on your Android device. Searching Google Play for "ntp" brings up two of them right on the first page: ClockSync (I use this one, and am quite happy with it; still running it with ...

I've got the same problem and the annoying sound can not be found in /System/media/audio/, but in /system/app/DeskClock.apk/assets/sounds/Timer_Expire.ogg. In any case, it seems difficult or impossible to change. There is more info here: http://androidforums.com/nexus-4/668411-super-harsh-countdown-timer-sound-nexus-4-how-change.html

There are just 2 ways to fix this: either to fix an .apk for this app (change a path in source of that app to point to different sound file and build it from source. Or maybe you will be able to patch your apk using something like android-apktool) or to fix something else (not an app): Mount /system as rw (either using adb or RootExplorer or other ...

The clock shown on the lock screen is part of the lock screen itself. The clock on your home screen is a widget. The only way to get the lock screen clock on your home screen is to find a widget that looks the same. There are plenty of widgets on the Google Play store, and if you can't find one you like you could always write one yourself!

Until Android 4.2 there is no stock Countdown timer, with Android 4.2 there will be one. Some alternative Interfaces like Touchwiz (Samsung Devices) have added a Countdown Timer for a long time, but stock Android (AOSP) had this first in 4.2.

I haven't figured out what the problem was, but I did find a workaround for my particular use case: Install Alarm Clock Launcher (donate version). That way, I can change the alarm clock settings without having to unlock my device twice.

I'm favoriting this question. I just installed diviClock widget this morning--http://www.appbrain.com/app/diviclock/divi.clock. it doesn't tick all of your boxes, but it has a 1x1 widget option (which I wanted and saves a great deal of space) plus the date (also something I wanted), and you can have multiple instances for your different time zones.

This actually sounds just like an issue that would be in MotoBLUR, especially MotoBLUR v1. This issue may have been fixed in the later releases of MotoBLUR, but initially this was a very buggy product. If you viewed the log that android writes for any errors that occurred with the first version of BLUR (which is what is on the backflip) there are tons of ...
