Connector A seems a U.FL-R-SMT-10 and probably is for an external/additional antenna. U.FL, is a miniature coaxial RF connector for high-frequency signals up to 6 GHz manufactured by Hirose Electric Group in Japan.1 U.FL connectors are commonly used inside laptops and embedded systems to connect the Wi-Fi antenna to a Mini PCI card. Female U.FL ...

As @Axeman said, the connector is an Ultra Small Surface Mount Coaxial connector (quite a mouthful and still could not get how it was abbreviated as U.FL) which is a kind of expansion port which could be used for any radio communication, including GSM, WiFi, GPS. And as @Lie Ryan said, the fourth terminal in the battery is for connecting the antennae in the ...

I figured this out only after months of being without most of my phone's functionality and taking it to a 3rd-party repair place that declared it "unrepairable". It is stupidly easy: Download an apk of your home launcher (I got one from here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/archive/index.php/t-1125331.html ) E-mail it to yourself Use voice commands to ...

I'm not sure is Dvorak is available on stock firmware for Optimus V, but there are many 3rd-party keyboard apps on the Market that have it (some require a separate download via a plugin.) Once installed, activate it by going to Menu -> Settings -> Language & keyboard, and marking the checkbox next to the newly installed keyboard app. Then bring ...

This is possible if you're rooted. There's two applications that I know of which give you a little persistent overlay on the side of the screen, then pop out a full set of soft buttons when you press the overlay. One is SoftKeys, the other is Button Savior. I haven't seen anything equivalent for non-rooted devices, but there is an app called SoftHome which ...

Have you looked on the Market? There seem to be a few Dvorak keyboards available. https://market.android.com/details?id=com.reyn.truedvorak&feature=search_result https://market.android.com/details?id=net.xenionsh.android.dvorak&feature=search_result You should probably shop around and try as many as you can find. If you don't know how to switch to ...

Android devices actually have several different buckets of storage that can fill up independently, any one of them can cause an "insufficient storage" error. This question: Why is "insufficient storage" wrongly reported when installing an .apk via adb? seems to cover the details and options best.

Who or how it was fixed as 190MB? The manufacturers decided that. They probably expected that that size would be sufficient during the expected time they will continue official support for the phone. Can the size of partition be increased? If you're rooted and installed custom boot loader, yes partitions can be resized, although not ...

This will not change the partition size of /system, but uses another approach: Limit the data placed on that partition. So here's what I did before flashing CM7.2 on my Milestone²: download the file to flash. This is usually a .zip file (otherwise, the following won't work) open the .zip with your favorite archive manager (alternatively: unpack to an empty ...

I had the same issue.... I tried the whole remove updates thing, I tried the delete apps, turn off gmail, gtalk etc. etc. etc. What you need to try before all of that is to confirm that Media background data is not turned off. Download Manager is a component of Media. Settings>Usage>Media make sure Media is not ticked. I ticked this when I was tinkering ...

Your best bet would be to reflash the ROM, since system reset only clears the user data, it won't restore system apps. A quick google search revealed this tutorial on how to reflash stock ROM: How to flash Original Firmware on the LG Optimus One P500

If you're looking to change the default size for a log buffer, to persist between reboots, you can recompile the kernel with updated buffer sizes. The file containing log buffer definitions is: <kernel>/drivers/staging/android/logger.c The versions I'm looking at use a macro to define log buffers in that file: DEFINE_LOGGER_DEVICE(variable, name, ...


3

To find out the actual size of the ring buffer, you can use $ adb logcat -g To adjust the size of the ring buffer, you might try $ adb logcat -r <kbytes> At least that's what some tutorials say. For more details, you might want to read "adb logcat" Command Options and Log Buffers. P.S.: I guess those settings (manual adjusted ring buffer size) ...

There's a "beta" version of CyanogenMod 7 for the Optimus One over at the XDA forums which you could try out. There also appear to be a couple of builds that are derived from CM but mix in different tweaks and patches to the kernel and whatnot (one such build here, also Gingerbread). CyanogenMod - if you're not already familiar with it - is essentially a ...

I found this review of the LG Optimus One which includes this quote: The standard Android keyboard’s text prediction is disabled; it doesn’t seem to have access to the system’s language dictionaries. So if you want word prediction, the LG keyboard it is. Looks like you're going to have to go with a third-party app solution or flash a new ROM ...

In some trains you sit like inside an Faraday cage, as they even metallized the windows -- thus no signal can get through. That's also why you have special "mobile phone" zones in some trains: Here they placed something like a little "repeater" inside this section of the train, capturing the signal from outside the cabin (and transmitting it back the same ...

You could use some automation app to do this, having two steps in its task: Switch to airplane mode, and then enable WiFi. Tasker is one app that can handle this, but I'm pretty sure some of the free profile-switchers are also capable of this. With Tasker you could place this with a profile executing as soon as Tasker is started -- other apps might provide ...

Looks like someone already figured this out and made a script using Script Manager that runs the script on boot. It turns the radio (cell) off, just the same as activating airplane mode, except that it leaves all other wireless settings alone (that is, bluetooth, wifi, etc). Or you can install a flashable zip described in this forum that you load in ...

USB devices are designed to use a wide variety of voltages ranging from 500mA to 1500mA and have been standardized for quite some time. You can generally plug any USB device into any USB cable and into any USB port, and nothing will blow up. Using a more powerful charger should speed up battery charging, while using a less powerful one will just charge ...

I had a similar problem that was fixed by formating the card in the phone. Settings -> SD card & phone storage settings -> Unmount SD card. Then format the card on the same screen.

The problem is resolved with the new update available from LG

OK, to answer the part of your question that wasn't answered by the questions I linked in the comments: Yes, you can unofficially upgrade to 2.2 or 2.3. This XDA thread has a relatively comprehensive list of ROMs. It looks like all the 2.3 ROMs are pretty buggy, so you should probably go with a 2.2 ROM that looks good to you; after a brief look, the one I ...

When I rooted my G1 and was using Cyanogen and we had a similar error we didn't need to reflash the rom, but just the gapps package - try reflashing that. Or other wise on AndroidPolice they have the latest market apk file which you could download and trash flashing that and seeing if that will install over the current market. If that still doesn't work ...

I am not sure if you as end-user could really fix the underlying problem. That's why it's always a good idea to send those bug reports that are (sometimes) shown after a force close occurs. But what you could try is to delete the application data, but this will eventually result in losing all your messages. Go to the Preferences -> Manage Applications -> ...

You may try to run Windows copy in VirtualBox. VB has ability to connect physical USB devices to virtual machine. So Windows will detect your phone. BUT BEWARE! Using such way for flash your phone may render it unusable (brick your phone, in another words). It is good to make sync between phone and PC. Also I'd like to see native Linux version of PC Suite ...

This site and this other confirm this method: Power off device completely Hold down the Home and Volume Down buttons Press and hold the Power button until the device powers on Follow the on-screen instructions to reset your device

What type of System Recovery do you have? On my P500 everything is fine. In AmonRA Recovery there are such bindings: VolUp/VolDown - moving through menus Back - previous menu level, cancel action Menu - select menu item, approve action Also I've noted that from some time back button doesn't work every time as I press it. I think it is hardware problem. ...

Download the Launcher .apk file (just Google your "demand launcher name" and plus "apk"), save it to your friend's phone, and send it to your phone via Bluetooth. After you recieve the .apk file just click whatever option that directs you to INSTALL the file. If Bluetooth is off, ask your friend to call your phone; when the dialer window pops up you can ...

You should probably try to re-flash the recovery image to your phone via fastboot. Just googling a little, or directly on the xda-developers.com forum you can find all the info you need, including links to recovery images for your model: http://forum.xda-developers.com/forumdisplay.php?f=839

You can use a new dialer which supports this. I have tried Swipe Dialer Free and it does this (You get the same icon for all outgoing calls whether they were answered or not but for the un-answered call, you will have "Not Answered" mentioned" P.S. - If your dialer shows the duration of call then I think for Non-Answered outgoing calls, it will show "0m ...
