Most probably your internal memory is too low. You can't access it without rooting your device. And it won't be visible in your PC/desktop anyways with a USB connection. (it can't be mounted) From what I understand your HTC Desire device has 512 MB of internal ROM which is used for both your stock firmware and user installed apps. The 512 MB storage ...

If you have a fastboot-enabled bootloader then it should be pretty simple. Just put the system.img file somewhere on your PC, connect your device via a USB cable, reboot into your bootloader's fastboot mode and then: fastboot flash system /path/to/system.img If you don't have fastboot then you'll have to jump through some more hoops. One option would be ...

The only HTC that I see on the Verizon site with an Android search is the Droid Incredible, which does not have a physical keyboard. According the HTC page on Wikipedia only the Dream (A71XX), Espresso (MyTouch 3G Slide), and the Desire Z have physical keyboards. Those are all GSM phones, which won't work on Verizon's network (it being CDMA). So the answer ...

I'll put this altogether here. Google and some OEMs don't seem to be supporting FM anymore, as evident in the Nexus 4 and 5 not having any FM hardware built in. The Samsung Galaxy S4 also are carrying on this trend. The theory being that there are Internet raido services that can stream thousands of channels. Which doesn't suit everyone. The theory is that ...

The people application itself is an HTC exclusive, but merged contacts from multiple sources (GMail, Exchange, Twitter, Facebook, SIM, carrier phonebook, etc) is a standard Android feature for 2.x (maybe earlier). By default the system tries to intelligently merge identically named contacts, but you can manually add/remove contacts from the merged ...

I updated my HTC ChaCha over the air (OTA) to 2.3.5 two days ago. Identical issue. Keep getting same error whenever I press the green call button or a number to start dialing or attempt to start the "Phone" app. I don't have a "Contacts" app any more. I believe the issue is in an app called "Dialer" because that's what displays when I tell my phone to ...

Open your settings menu and go all the way to the bottom, open Developer Options. In the Input section, find the options called Pointer Location, and check it. This is a feature for developers that shows the raw data from the digitizer. Move your fingers around on the screen, and watch what you see, if your finger seems to disappear from the screen, ...

Extracted from UltraPixel vs Megapixel: HTC One & iPhone 5 Camera Shoot-Out: Ultra-Pixels: Basically the sensor on the HTC One features larger pixels for better low light sensitivity and, on paper, better overall camera performance. [...] We have to understand that “ultrapixel” is just HTC’s marketing team saying that the pixels on the HTC ...

As Shywim wrote, direct access from your Windows PC is limited to certain directories – by default. But there are some helpers available to give you more details. Some examples include: DavDrive Lite – make the local file system available via WebDAV. This would require another 3rd party tool on your Windows PC (some WebDAV client) FTPServer – a small and ...

If your phone is not rooted, then you can't access the "OS" or the "programms". When you plug your phone, you can only browse its internal and/or external storage in a file explorer. If you are not rooted, you can use adb to browse the "OS", but you can only view it and you can not access /data folder. If you are rooted, you can access and write all to the ...

ROM Manager doesn't do anything particularly special to install a custom ROM. It essentially makes a call to the recovery binary that allows it to save instructions for your recovery partition to run the next time it boots, thereby automating the process of flashing whatever zip file you choose. You could do the exact same thing manually. Therefore, if your ...

You most probably left some residuals of the (moved) app on your SD card. The easiest way to remove that would probably to pull out the SD card and remove the moved app on your computer (it's not accessible on your phone easily). For example, the full path to the moved tricorder app on my phone is: /mnt/sdcard/.android_secure/org.hermit.tricorder-1.asec ...

The EVO Shift 4G meets the first three criteria but fails the last. It's a Sprint-branded phone. Sprint uses CDMA, though, so an unlocked phone would work on Verizon's network. It runs on Android 2.2. Edit: Sprint has now pushed out the Gingerbread (Android 2.3) update to the EVO Shift 4G

There are email replacement apps, but unfortunately the few that act similar to HTC Mail will cost money. Touchdown by Nitrodesk: Touchdown is my preferred email replacement as I use the exchange functionality, and imap protocol. It can tie into most major email services, and also offers some premium features for business users. Enhanced Email: A more ...

It's more or less a backup version of the Gingerbread release for the Nexus One. HTC manufactured the Nexus One, so they host a copy of the kernel, drivers, system images and so forth that are released for it, just like they do for the other phones they made. You can use it to flash back to a stock ROM if you own a Nexus One, but if you have a different HTC ...

If fastboot is installed on the handset (or commonly called bootloader), it might be best to re-flash via usage of USB cable and the handset with the cable plugged in. In order to achieve this, a original image file is needed for this to work. The essence of fastboot, is that from the command line, the handset can be re-formatted and told to boot specific ...

Your phone settings cannot possibly affect the strength of the signal produced by a wireless router. I would assume that this option just prevents Wi-Fi "sleep", seemingly confirmed by this discussion. If that's the case it will consume more power when you're not using your phone.

You are running sense that comes with these "extra" "sense like experience" apps. You are right, you cannot remove them by normal means. If you go to manage applications and select each htc app (Peep, facebook for htc sense) you will not be given the option to uninstall them or delete them. If you do root your phone, you will be able to uninstall them via ...

You're absolutely correct with your assumption a factory-reset will delete all your apps and data (as you also can find in the factory-reset tag-wiki). If you want to backup your contacts and SMS, I'm afraid there's no native way. While the contacts you could sync with Google, the same cannot be said for SMS. But if you take a look at google play, searching ...

It depends on the device, and what you mean by "2.xx". Do you want A: stock Android? B: a ROM? C: a manufacturer-skinned stock image? I'm going to assume that the answer do the question above is D: Any of the above. I'm also going to assume that by "2.xx", you mean 2.3. There are a few general requirements that will need to be fulfilled for it to be ...

You can try Market Helper; requires ROOT. Market Helper is a tool for Android that helps users to be able to change/fake their rooted devices to any other devices. For example, it can turn your Nexus 7 into Samsung Galaxy S3 in a few seconds. No reboot is required.

Free Option: NextRadio by Sprint says specifically it is not a streaming services, but uses the FM tuner in your phone. It says it is only for a few Sprint phones, but appears to be installable on my Galaxy Nexus and Moto X, so it should be available for your HTC One Play Edition. About: Key Features: Tune in to local FM stations on your phone ...

The standard FMRadio is designed specifically for that chipset employed by the HTC One, you will have difficulty in finding support for that said chipset hence the Radio FM apps you see on the Play-Store may not have the support for it. Vital questions: Which HTC One model are you referring to? After consulting PDADB.net there seems to be a few of them? ...

If you're just looking to install apps from Google Play, you can download the apks directly using APK Downloader; all you'll need is the package name or Google Play URL. Then just move the files to your device and install normally. As a One V owner as well, I recommend looking into RhythmicRom. Google Play correctly detects my device as Android 4.2.2 and ...

BlinkFeed—an aggregator of news and social network content [...] BlinkFeed will always occupy the leftmost page of the home screen. The default BlinkFeed home screen of HTC Sense 5 (Wikipedia: HTC One) To explain the second line: By default, there will only be two home screen panels out of the box: a "BlinkFeed" page and a classic ...

A factory reset doesn't wipe the ROM files, only the user data, so you can't have "uninstalled the ROM" that way. Having a locked bootloader doesn't stop you flashing a ROM: it just limits you to official ROMs signed by the manufacturer (or possibly by the carrier). So even if you can't or don't want to unlock the bootloader, you can still flash the stock ...

The HTC Desire by default allocates 250 MB of its internal memory for the /system partition, 40 MB for /cache partition and 147 MB for /data partition. The ROMs are usually packed in ZIP files and are usually about 155 MB in size. However, they do get bigger when unpacked. Here's how to verify that you will be able to flash a custom ROM on your phone. ...

See my answer and my comment about replacing a font file Droidsansfallback.ttf. I am sure you can search and find many file sharing sites sharing this file. You can also extract the font file from any of the Android device that you may have. After replacing the font file and restarting the phone, chances are pretty high that you might not be able to see the ...
