Have you tried this app from Chainfire? https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=eu.chainfire.liveboot From the description, it shows a logcat of the boot process over the boot animation.

Well with the boot loader unlocked you can temporarily boot up into recovery by using fastboot: fastboot boot recovery-clockwork-6.0.4.7-mako.img This will then give you adb access to your device to get files off etc. The adb debug mode could then be turned on by editing a settings file and copying in the crypto keys generated by adb on the host computer. ...

You can toggle cellular data from quick settings. Swipe downwards twice to bring up the toggles. Tap on the mobile network icon, which will open up another screen which shows the total data usage. Then switch on/off the cellular data from this screen. When you use this navigation, it won't throw a confirmation dialog.

You need both pieces. The LTE radio was disabled, in software, by the 2.0.1700.48 radio firmware update.

If you try to use the dialer code on the .48 or higher radios, it will not work. If you're ...

Good luck trying to get to language and input setting on the Nexus 4. After upgrading to 5.0, that option crashes settings. Haven't heard of any fix for that since it pales in comparison to the issues Nexus 5 is having.

Changing soft keys will require root access on Lollipop (or any other version). You can root your Nexus 4 using Chainfire's steps. An app called SoftKeyZ will allow you modify soft keys on your phone.

What sort of files are you trying to share? And how large are they? Android beam / bluetooth will work, though it may take a while and not give you much feedback of how long it will take. To do this, tap the 'three dots' on the top right, and select share. There's an option of 'android beam'. Make sure that the receiving phone has their nfc turned on.

Go to Settings >> Security >> Device Administrators. See if anything other than Android Device Manager is checked. If something is checked, it's possible it's forcing a higher level of security. Uncheck it if there is, and check the screen lock options again. Also try Settings >> Security >> Clear credentials.

UPDATE2: After a while, it seems like it cured itself. No more connectivity issues for a full 24 hrs. Perhaps it was a bad tower-radio(baseband) combination? UPDATE: Actually, this didn't fix it completely. It behaves better, but it eventually goes into a state where the antenna says 3G, but there's no data nor phone connectivity. This happened 3 times. ...

I suspect the issue was caused by having Lollipop reset the default access point of the phone provider to Tmobile rather than Straight talk. Setting it to Straight Talk seems to have made it work again. Will report back if anything changes.

Yea a bit confusing but these are alternate paths for the memory layout /mnt/sdcard0/ (Internal Virtual SD Card) and Izzy your correct if more devices are connected, but the naming could be different depending on device. ex. /mnt/sdcard1/ (Physical SD Card in SD slot) but other devices such as a Usb flash drive connect with an adapter could be called ...

Same thing happened to me. I called virgin who told me to call LG. I have to send my phone for repair. Apparently this has happened to many nexus users. They will uninstall the Android 5.0 update and send it back to you. But it might take a few weeks.

Look at my values. Mine reports slightly lower numbers (9.2). I believe LGE Accelerometer Sensor field shows raw data from the sensor. It's normal that it's not super accurate. More importantly look at Gravity and Linear Acceleration fields in both mine and your screenshot. These fields show expected values. This means software compensates for sensor ...

If you have a rooted device, you most likely will not be able to install OTA updates (over the air). Factory resetting the device will not un-root the device so the best way of updating it is to do the following: Get the factory image you wish to install (in your case, lollipop) from the Google developers website Flash that image by following this tutorial ...

It is possible to sideload the OTA update on a non-rooted, non-unlocked phone without losing your data (although it would be advisable to back up anything important that can't be restored from the cloud). The instructions here worked for me. This approach is not advised if you are not comfortable with working at the command line, dealing with windows ...
