You can't use nightlies daily, you can only use them at night. (<- That is a joke, by the way.) Nightlies are the most unstable builds of CyanogenMod, but the number of bugs depends on the device. Typically, there are few bugs, as they still test the ROMs, but you will probably encounter (a few) more bugs than in a stable build. Most people will be able ...

Back when I had a Samsung Galaxy Ace and wanted to use CyanogenMod on it, it almost always had a Nightly build. Encountered a few bugs, but not major ones. Granted this is a different phone and CM version, point is you have to know which features/functionalities are working and not based on the wiki/release notes provided. Also which bugs are present. You ...

Old things tend to stick around. In everyday things (toasters, microwaves etc) there is some kind of software to control the device. That software is installed by the manufacturer and is usually hard to change, in practice read-only. While you can flash the system partition on android, with some electronic devices you needed to and still need to plug in some ...

All credit goes to stubbakatt over HERE for the files and original instructions. I simply walked through it myself and re-wrote out the instructions in a way that caters to my brain. Disclaimer: This has been tested on two machines - one running Windows 7 32 bit, and one running Windows 7 64 bit. This has not been tested on an XP machine (though it should ...

Is there an upgrade waiting to be installed even? I have 2 ideas: A: Use bluetooth tethering to your phone to get network access B: You could install some basic commandline tools (eg. ssh server / socat / brctl / etc) from http://dan.drown.org/android/ and try to get a working connection via Android-Debug-Bridge's integrated portforwarding feature (maybe ...

Yes, I'm pretty sure all of the other 'Google Apps' can be requested from the Play Store. I myself, also usually start the basis of a new ROM installation with the Nano-gapps package. It removes a lot of the non-mandatory Google bloatware such as GoogleNow, PlayMusic (I use an alternative) and even Gmail (I have my Gmail emails come through the stock Email ...

CyanogenMod - Xperia SP maintainer here. If you are sure about having a Xperia SP then you can safely remove that assert check in the install script of the zip :) you should have the right prop id so you can continue on with normal releases. i've never seen this issue before.

Try harder to find firmware images for your phone. A factory reset might not work, as it only wipes data and cache partition. The etc folder is in /system/etc, /etc usually just is a link to /system/etc. Therefore you would need an image of the system partiton. Well, if you can't find such firmware, it might not be a device thats common used, and therefore - ...

Attempt to do a Factory Reset through Settings. I deleted a system file once and it ended up fixing it although my new experience with Android says it might not work. I couldn't find anything online relating to your phone besides reviews, tests, and things along those lines. You are sort of in a pickle here. I'll try to search more for ya.

I have a Y330 myself. I haven't found a custom ROM also. It seems no one is making a custom ROM for it. My advice is to leave it alone since I also haven't been able to find the stock ROM which you can revert to if things go wrong. However if you're really good you can attempt porting your desired Android version.

This means you are stuck in a bootloop which means that your phone can't boot. It can be caused by the wrong installation of the rom. You can try to do a factory reset from recovery. If it doesn't fix you should try to install the stock rom. If you need more help please ask.

According to AndroidPolice is actually caused by a bug in Chrome Beta that showed up on certain custom ROMS. The recent update (v39.0.2171.90) contains a fix for this issue. It's likely that the next update for non beta Chrome will include a fix for this too.

This is happening in any custom ROM that supports floating windows. It is there, for example, in SlimKat, Spirit ROM, CM based ROMs etc. In my case I can move and size the window, and there is a maximize button available. It resizes the window with pinch to zoom automatically rendering it almost unusable. This is an app issue ultimately, but it is specific ...
