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 ...

I fond a "patch" solution. Basically, you must "downgrade" the video quality. To do the "downgrade" on Google's official app, follow these instructions: Open a video with the YouTube app. Tap any place of screen to show the menu (in landscape). Hit the 3 dots on the top right corner. Hit the settings icon to show the available resolutions of current video. ...

As @sameer has mentioned you will lose the wifi password and bluetooth name etc when you do clear data for settings.But using titanium backup pro you can restore them as it is.

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 ...

"Notification mode" refers not to the notification bar, but the notification sounds. If you turn it off, then notification sounds will be off. Notifications in the notification bar will still show. Some notifications still vibrating: sounds like the app developer implemented manual vibration instead of using notification settings.

My solution was to flash back to Factory Rom (EH03 Gingerbread). Reinstalled CWM and SU, then flashed CM 10.1 once more from SD Card. CWM returns to boot option menu after install, at which point I installed gapps BEFORE rebooting into fresh flash of 10.1 - Problem solved.

Once you are in the People app and have chosen a contact: 1) click menu --> edit 2) choose Add Another Field 3) select Special Dates (special dates defaults to birthday, but also included anniversary etc.) I'm on CM11 M8 as well, works for me. Also, might be worth flashing the latest gapps http://wiki.cyanogenmod.org/w/Google_Apps

I think your build f MIUI doesnt have the code for mounting the SD-ext partition on boot. To check this, open the init.d folder in your new ROM and see if it has any file relating to Sd-ext. This link has a init.d script for mounting the SD-ext partition link

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 ...

Solution: install proper version of "Google Aplication". CM 10.1.3 needs GApps 20130812. Read: http://wiki.cyanogenmod.org/w/Gapps for more info.

I did it a few days ago for the same problem (CyanogenMod M8 for i9100): I didn't lose anything; It fixes the problem =)

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 ...

Never do that. Perhaps it helps to increase your speed but it consumes much more power. If performance in CPU increases, undoubtedly,the power usage will increase dramatically. Try to keep your factory ROM and looking for some good free app in the market for increasing the speed.

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 ...

Thanks alot. Cleaning Settings Data has helped me instantly. Since I'm using Go Launcher and other stuff, I coulnd't find a proper to get to app details of settings. If you have Clean Master, it's easy. Open it. Go to App-Manager - Uninstall - Pre-installed Apps - Cannot Unistall [at the bottom] - Click on "Settings" - Details. There you go.

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.

It looks like this happens because my recovery (Safestrap 3.65) doesn't support "set_metadata"... I tried these Gapps ("they are compatible with recoveries not supporting set_metadata") and they were flashed correctly.

I fixed it! Turns out it was a bug with vfat support. I had to format my SD to exfat, but now it's working again.

You can install an alternate keyboard to gain this functionality. I put Hackers Keyboard (free in Play Store) on my Nexus 10 and have it configured with arrow keys. Ctrl-C/X/V also work (for cut & paste shortcuts).

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

Check out an app called Go SMS Pro. Update: Sorry if it weren't clear. The OP included a request for an app to block the alerts. I inferred the alert was coming in through the messaging system. You can block messages by their source with this app. Press/hold for a menu. Click on block this source. This app, is available via the play store. You get ...

Just for my experience with the Xperia Mini Pro (3 years of use and the new Note 3: The stock was more efficient in using the battery even it was filled with bloatware. Same reason why i am looking this up - to go with some stock modified rom or CM which i like more, but battery is a must...

To answer your first question, yes. May I recommend ParanoidAndroid GApps for a reliable source of current GApps. To your second question: make sure you do a wipe BEFORE you install your system rom and gapps. Sidenote, its quite possible there are outstanding bugs in your rom. For this reason I highly recommend following guides on Xda Developers

The answer to this question will likely vary from device to device because CyanogenMod focuses their efforts on popular devices, and older phones don't get as much love and attention. From my research, success with the Pebble also then varies per device (source 1, 2, 3). Some people have had success and never encounter a single issue. Others have ...

This doesn't directly answer your question, but you could use an FTP app instead, an app which runs an FTP server on your phone that you then connect to over your local network using a client such as FileZilla on your desktop machine? (This is how I transfer files to and from my own Android device, the USB is just too slow and unreliable)

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 ...
