From what I can see from this site (In Spanish): this is a specific advertising service that only the Movistar network seems to push to phones. The only solution I found is to Disable the "SIM Toolkit" application, Settings > Applications > SIM Toolkit but this may require root access to your device. Removing SIM toolkit according to Android Forum ...

I had the same problem where settings would keep on crashing. I just got the snapshot today and it did the same thing. After experimenting I fixed it by going in the app drawer and holding on setting, opening its app info, and clearing data. It now opens and works well. I hope this helps.

In theory, your phone should perform considerably faster with CyanogenMod 11, because KitKat was designed with entry/mid-level phones in mind; requiring only 512 MB of RAM to run. (See this page about Project Svelte for more information.) CyanogenMod also adds a whole slew of features like Heads Up Notifications and Privacy Guard on top of the AOSP code, so ...

This is how i recovered mine sometime ago: First you need to Download the correct .blob (Firmware) file from the Asus site here. When you downloaded the correct Firmware unzip it and remember its directory. Boot it into fastboot mode (when you press volume down on the little android it seems that the tablet is stuck but actually it is in fastboot mode) and ...

Autoupdates brick a lot of Transformers when on CM. Bad sounding situation, in my opinion. Fastboot and ADB are the only ways you could recover your device if you have a bad bootloader and recovery. Have you tried holding Vol-Down while resetting with a paperclip? That should force fastboot. If not, we can try adb. Do you have adb access while your ...

There isn't an Asus one and a Google one: both the Nexus 7 models are Asus-Google collaborations. All Nexus devices are design collaborations between Google and another device manufacturer (Asus, Samsung, or LG). That said, the two models are completely different, with different SoCs, screens, and cameras. The original Nexus 7 (aka nakasi) has a ...

What do you mean 'should I install it?' What are you going to flash on your phone? BTW since your tablet lacks official support, try looking on xda-dev if there's any unofficial support for your device. There's little to no hope so I wouldn't count on it much. Even if you can find an unofficial support, its likely to be very buggy and unstable. Better stick ...

CyanogenMod, along with most1 other custom ROMs, only include Android code with a few Google parts - all under-the-hood, of course. They do not include apps such as Play Store, Google Now, Gmail, etc. These apps are available as a separate package commonly referred to as GApps2. So the answer is yes, you may achieve a "de-Googled" experience if you opt not ...

Starting with Kitkat, you can make one app the default SMS app. By default, on a device with Google apps, that is Hangouts, but you can install as many SMS apps as you like. If they have been developed/updated for Kitkat, they should be fitted to be used as "default SMS app". Of course, if you don't need one of the pre-installed apps, or don't want to use ...

On yesterday's CyanogenMod nightly, I performed the following steps: Unmount the SD card in the UI Erase the SD card in the UI (this recreates the partition table itself and creates a new FAT32 fs) Unmount the SD card again, if needed Plug in the phone Open a shell with adb shell su to root (this has to be enabled in Settings) Run make_ext4fs ...

I know this is old, but I was having this problem with my LG G2 and finally figured out how to get rid of it. Hoping this saves someone else the frustration! Go into Settings and under the System heading there is an option for Accessory. When you open that, uncheck the "car Home" option that says "automatically start car home when the phone is mounted on ...
