In fact the charging time depends on two points: the output current of the adapter or the USB. The output current of the PC is only 0.5a, it may charge slowly than most of the AC adapters (most of the AC Adapters are 1A or more). the input current and the charging convert rate of the phone. Different phones have different input current due to Limited ...

Yes, most manufacturers (AFAIK including HTC, as I had this experience with my EVO 4G) will have the OTA update break if the device is rooted. This may have changed, but to my knowledge, OTA will not work after root. However, devices can be unrooted, however, some are easier than others, and the process is different for most devices. Please note that most ...

As far as I know, you can't transfer files over Android beam, just URLs/locations etc. This is because Android Beam doesn't use Bluetooth or WiFi Direct in addition to the NFC transfer, which means that an average photo would take 30+ seconds to beam. In Android 4.1+ (Jelly Bean) you can transfer files with NFC+BT, and S Beam uses NFC+WiFi Direct.

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.

To charge at the maximum rate, the charger must identify itself as a charging device by shorting two middle USB pins. This is in the USB specification. Proper chargers come like this. Other chargers can be modified to short the pins together. I have personally modded a Griffin USB car charger in this manner. Before the change, it would charge in "USB" mode. ...

Disabling a notification for particular app wont' save battery. Yes it would a little by not ringing and vibrating and also by not making you look at the phone. Actually notification is handled by OS itself. An app just says that I want this notification to be displayed and OS handles it. In your case those apps are running in background using service and ...

Acccording to this XDA thread, it does NOT support GLONASS They ran GPS tests on both Galaxy Note and HTC One X, the former of which does officially support GLONASS; and the former showed 2x the amount of detected satellites.

It doesn't say it on HTC's website under the specs for the One X, but this review points out that the phone has dual-microphones, used for sound cancellation during phone calls. My guess is perhaps your recording app is recording from the wrong microphone? Or using both to cancel out the pitch you're looking for? I'd look for settings in your recording apps ...

This is a protection that HTC uses to ensure quality in their devices. To re-install their custom stock you must re-lock you phone, to do this place you phone into fast-boot mode and plugin in via USB: At the command line (or where ever you may have the fastboot binary) execute these commands: fastboot devices fastboot oem lock This will lock your ...

"Fast Boot" is basically analogous to the hibernate or possibly S3 (STR) sleep functionality on regular PCs (HTC isn't very clear on what precisely it does, but analysis of its claims and action suggests it's one of these). Rather than fully shutting down and restarting, the OS resumes where it was after a shutdown, allowing the system to get from "off" to ...

Because Google Text-to-Speech isn't really an app: it's a library app. That is, it doesn't have a user interface for you to interact with; rather, it offers an interface to other apps to use its functionality. Other apps on the phone can give text to Google Text-to-Speech for it to speak out loud. It's up to the author of the app in question to use the ...

If you are not rooted then Shywim's answer is correct. However, if you have rooted your device you can install the Xposed framework. This allows you to install modules that tweak various aspects of Android. The module GravityBox (KK) for kitkat and (JB) for Jelly Bean, which you can install via the Xposed Installer has an option "Allow Any Widget" for ...

My experience of the One X in order to be able to select multiple items in the gallery you need to first give it a task to do. For example, Open Gallery Hit 'Share' in the bottom left, you'll need a service which takes multiple uploads, such as Facebook Then you'll see the 'multi-select' grid with tick boxes next to each image which you can then select. ...

I got a reply from HTC technical support. Make of it what you will, I've asked the lady to clarify what she means as I don't understand her Engrish. Thank you for providing me with the additional details to enable me to resolve your enquiry. It’s always our aim to ensure that our customers’ issues are resolved first time and I’m sorry that this has ...

Keep in mind that on the Battery Usage screen even though per-app breakdown always adds up to 100%, it does not represent the full capacity of your battery, but rather only the used portion. In other words, if your phone is reporting current battery level of 65%, the breakdown is for the other 35%. Since nothing really happens overnight, it's not unusual ...

You can use ES File Explorer or File Expert to backup your apk's, it will only backup your apps not the data. And they will do it with free versions. From this answer To backup your app data you should have to rooted to use any application that can backup the data. But if you have not rooted then you can try the following command which will work without ...

Depending on your Android version, and whether you are rooted or not, there are multiple possibilities. On all rooted devices, you can use Titanium Backup ★ root (pro version recommended -- there's nothing like it). For non-rooted devices, there's no app that can really backup everything (which is an intended permission issue for security reasons: no app can ...

This feature is rather be app-specific. Probably the default photo app on your Legend does this by default, while the one on you One X does not. To achieve the desired results on your new device, you might need to find a 3rd party photo app supporting this feature. Your phone is certainly capable of it, that's not the issue.

Apparently there is a root method for the AT&T One X running 4.0.4. I've not tested it, but have reproduced the instructions in full from here: I have successfully rooted the AT&T HTC One X running build 2.20. In the previous build (1.85), S-ON was only partially enforced, so it was possible to modify the /system partition without having unlocked ...

The short answer is: No, they are not the same. The long answer is as follows: At least for dimensions, they are not exactly the same (HTC One XL, to the right, is a bit smaller) Also, from the comparison table you talk about: HTC One X AT&T wouldn't support HSDPA 900, while HTC One XL does. HTC One X AT&T supports 4G network with LTE 700 MHz ...

No you can't flash an international ROM on your device. Because your phone's configuration is different than international version. Details are given below: Chipset: Qualcomm MSM8960 Snapdragon (AT&T)----- Nvidia Tegra 3 (International) CPU: Dual-core 1.5 GHz Krait (AT&T)----- Quad-core 1.5 GHz (International) GPU: Adreno 225 ...

Looks like you've messed up some terms: I was trying to enable mobile hotspot function, so I could enjoy internet from my PC adhoc wireless network First: the mobile hotspot function is to share your Android device's mobile Internet connection to other devices not having Internet on their own, e.g. a tablet or laptop, via WiFi. Second: only few ...

It looks like your screen has been effected by the water and needs a new screen. You can also open it up and dry the screen and digitalizer carefully. Maybe the screen and digitalizer are still wet on the inside. iFixit has said that it's "impossible" to repair it (open it up and being able to close it again), so be warned. The other option is to turn your ...

Unfortunately I don't think there's any way for a user of an app to do that, I'm pretty sure it would require the developer to add that extra "intent" as an option to their app before it could appear in that app chooser box. There are apps that specialize in this behaviour though, and should appear as options in the app chooser box for web links: InBrowser ...

Clearing logcat can't make any difference to your storage problem. The logcat output is stored in a ring buffer, so it has a fixed size, and the ring buffer only exists on RAM: it isn't written to the storage at all. See the frequent questions under the insufficient-memory tag for what to do when your phone storage is getting full.

Samsung has two types of MHL cable: an 11-pin one for their more recent phones, and a 5-pin one for their older phones. The 5-pin one is standard and will work on non-Samsung phones. The 11-pin one only works on newer Samsung phones. Third-party manufacturers tend to also sell both kinds, so look at which phones the cable says it is for. If it says it's for ...

I am using the same version of the OS on my HTC One X and I have never had this problem before. So I am thinking this is maybe a problem concerning the hardware of your phone. Maybe you should contact HTC for this problem. They can probably help you some more. But you could always try to do a hard factory reset (this is something which HTC support will ask ...

Those permissions (call, SMS) are in most cases used for "quick-access-widgets/shortcuts" the launcher provides. To create a call widget for a contact, the contacts need to be read, which again might need the account data in some cases to retrieve them. So all those permissions are obviously making sense in context of a launcher. Of course this does not ...

I might not be 100% right, but as a launcher I think the permissions are for the following: Directly call phone numbers: If the launcher has its own Dialer, you need to give it permissions to be able to do calls, else you would end with a dialer that doesnt dial. Access mail information, read your text messages (SMS or MMS): Same as above, launchers many ...
