As per advice from Narayanan, I replaced /system/media/audio/ui/LowBattery.ogg with another .ogg file. The next time it was triggered, the new file played. I then tried placing an empty file at /system/media/audio/ui/LowBattery.ogg, but this did not work. Finally, I downloaded a slient .ogg from here, placing it at /system/media/audio/ui/LowBattery.ogg. ...

Firstly and most important, the credits: I made this following this great tutorial at XDA-Developers by user metalgearhathaway: http://forum.xda-developers.com/galaxy-s2/development-derivatives/mod-partition-internal-memory-app-t2538947 I used PIT files (I'll explain what they are, don't worry) made from user ElGamal from XDA also, located here (comment ...

After doing a bit of research, I've reduced it down to this: GSM and CDMA = 2G EDGE (E) = 2.5G WCDMA and EVDO = 3G HSPA (H) = 3.5G HSPA+ (H+) = 3.75G LTE = 4G GSM and CDMA are competing technologies, as well as WCDMA and EVDO. Contrary to what you'd think, WCDMA is an evolution of GSM, while EVDO is an evolution of CDMA, which ...

Best solution I have at this point for recovering usability of your phone would be to boot into Download Mode and flash a full suite with ODIN.

Your assumptions seem to be incorrect: Android is free already and CM is based on AOSP (Android Open Source Project). CM does not remove bloatware from your ROM, it replaces your firmware completely hence doesn't contain certain manufacturer-specific apps. And by that might limit the support to certain functions i.e. One-Handed Operations. The Pros & ...

Note: I have tried to make below a bit more generic than your specific Mac OS option, but the Mac is covered in the below answer, but this may help other Nexus 5 users. Full credit to the OP on XDA. If you want to restore your Nexus 5 back to stock, you can flash a Factory Image. Note: This process will wipe your phone completely. Backup your storage ...

I found the way to solve this. 1- Unlock the phone (as usual) 2- Go to settings 3- Go to Screen Security (Something like this, my android is not in english, it should be around the top) 4- Go to lock screen 5- Select none 6- Press back 7- Turn off your screen (wait a few seconds?) and turn ON again and you should have no lock at all. 8- Problem ...

Your google research is correct. There is an order. root → unlock bootloader → install custom recovery (twrp or cwm) → backup current rom → install custom rom (cyanogenmod or aosp etc). Without being rooted and having bootloader unlocked, you won't be able to install recovery and custom room. That's why it needs to be done first. Cyanogenmod is pre-rooted. ...

You probably can't copy and paste the files, because the blank SD card doesn't have the same partition structure and filesystem flags. What you can do, though, is clone the original SD card onto the blank one. Note: the new SD card must be the same size (or larger) for this to work. These instructions will make an exact copy, including partition ...

Dan is correct, but what also needs to be known is whether it is 3G/WiFi (tilapia 2012, deb 2013) or just WiFi(grouper 2012, flo 2013). The 2 models can't use the ROMs for the other, meaning you can't use the 2012 3G ROM on the 2012 WiFi model and etc. the above in parenthesis are the names for different models and years So there is actually 4 different ...

This was supposedly fixed several months ago, but people are still reporting problems. I can read items on the card, but do not have write permission. To fix it, I combined strategies from a few sources. Partition card with MS-DOS partition table and ext4 filesystem. I used GParted on my (Linux) desktop computer. Insert the card into your phone. (You will ...
