It won't fit, The Note 2 batteries are physically larger than the Note 1's battery slots. Your best bet is finding a good third-party extended battery.

You need to clear the "Launch by default" setting for StumbleUpon. Open up your phone settings, then go to Applications. Look for the StumbleUpon app, and click on it. Here is where you can do things such as uninstall/disable the app, clear the data, etc. One of the options is to Clear defaults. This is the option you need to run. It will restore the ...

I also recently upgraded my Note2 from 4.1 to 4.3 and was having the same problem. I installed the Wakelock Detector by UzumApps and found that the Noom Walk pedometer app was waking the screen. I uninstalled the Noom Walk app and the screen no longer wakes. The Noom developers have posted a test APK which can be found here: ...

The update is just a bug fix update, no new features. The lock screen bug that you mentioned allowed bypassing the lock screen for a short amount of time, details can be found for example on TheVerge or AndroidCentral.

I use the Simeji input method. it uses the great "flick" method for inputting kana. It takes some getting used to, but is very fast once you do. To switch between keyboards, just long press in the text field.

Due to a disclosure agreement, Corning (who make about 90% of screens) will not answer any questions on what devices use their technology. However, Samsung have said: "GT-N7100 does not have Gorilla Glass 2. Thank you for your interest." That doesn't say who makes it or what type of material it is I'm afraid. However, from friends and others I would say ...

Since you bought your phone from Kuwait, the phone has the Kuwait Galaxy Note 2 Rom, and still now the 4.3 update has not been pushed out in Kuwait or the middle east region for both the note 2 and s3. But for the Indian Rom 4.3 has already been pushed out for both the phones. My brother had the same problem with his s3 and since I have some knowledge in ...

Just in case somebody stumbles upon this question - you don't need to uninstall Facebook. Just open the Gallery, press the menu button and go to "Content to display" option. Uncheck Facebook there. Done.

The language setting was my key problem - after changing the OS language from Croatian to English (U.S.), Google Now is miraculously ready to go! Watch the video How to get Google Now talking to you... for an instructional guide on changing your system language.

You must be running at least Android 4.1 to use Google Now - please ensure this is true. If you are running at least Android 4.1, then ensure you have the latest Google Voice Search update from the Google Play Store - be aware that it is listed twice (at least on my old device).

In Settings > Contacts > Show all contacts should be disabled which was the case for me but still had same problem. So I enabled "Show all contacts" and exited whatsapp. Launched Whatsapp again and disabled 'Show all contacts' and got the names back again instead of just phone numbers. Hope my experience helps.

There's the free and open source Tunes Viewer which is sadly not available in the Play store (Apple probably doesn't allow it): The easiest way is to install the FOSS market F-Droid which hosts such apps and install Tunes Viewer from there (search for "TunesViewer"). It's also directly available as an .apk installation file here, but I'd prefer the F-Droid ...

You can do this easily using an app such as SG USB Mass Storage Enabler. As you already know, your device does not support mass storage facility. So You have to ask help from MTP modes or enable the Mass Storage mode. The app stated above does the latter. It is easy. But you have to have the root access. If you don't know how, use this guide to know how.

I had to download Samsung's USB drivers for this device from their support page. After you have the driver installed, when you plug in the device, Windows search windows.com for updates and finds: Samsung mobile usb composite device Samsung-sgh-i317 Samsung mobile usb modem Samsung Android ADB Interface Now, the interface still shows the "Connected as a ...

You should be able to use adb backup which is takes a complete backup of the phone. You'll need to install the Android SDK but this should allow you to backup the whole device Backup There are a number of parameters you can supply but the simplest way to do a full backup is to run: adb backup -all -f C:\backup.ab More info can be found on this xda post ...

I too have not figured out the intermittent screen turn on problem but will address one other issued mentioned. Lithium ion batteries have internal circuitry which shuts the charging down when the battery is at 100%. Unless the electronics are bad, you cannot overcharge them. Leaving them discharged for long periods CAN harm them. You can get roughly 300 ...

Since your phone is rooted you can use Wanam Xposed Note that the framework itself doesn't add any functionality, but once installed you can download (via the framework itself) modules that have custom functionality. Wanam Xposed module has many tweaks for stock Samsung Touchwiz ROMs, GravityBox has many for morer 'stock' type ROMs. You can change the SMS ...

I had faced the same problem myself. System settings > device > accessibility > services. Something in there is set to On. Switch it to off and you will be OK. I had the same problem because I had an application set to on. Instant fix!

It should be visible within "Disk Management" (diskmgmt.msc) in Windows. From there you can create, delete, modify and format partitions.


2

AFAIK the most common standard here is FAT32 (which usually ships as format of the only partition with new cards). So using that, you should be on the safe side. On the other hand: If you have no plans using the card via a card reader on Windows machines, you could also try EXT3 or EXT4. Both should be supported by CM (and also most other ROMs), as with ...

i just asked asked a similar question at *Move* *photos* from android to pc *wirelessly* *in one step* after becoming frustrated that the seemingly common task of moving photos from a phone to a pc (crazy, i know) was met with suggestions ranging from rooting and tweaking the phone to adb to cumbersome file transfers (fine for us techies, not fine for e.g. ...

If you can connect your phone via USB cable, just drag and drop to the folder DCIM. If you want to transfer them wireless, try Android Transfer. Here is a guide that may help you: How to Transfer Photos from Android to Computer

Option 1: (Easier) If the two devices are connected to the same Wifi network, you could transfer files to and from the Note 2 via an app called Airdroid. It's actually quite easy to use. After installation on the Note 2, just follow the instructions. You'll need to open a browser, such as Chrome, and navigate to the url displayed on the Note 2. Option 2: ...

Aside from using mtp, if you have trouble with that, there are several alternatives you could use. The easiest probably is a tool like AirDroid, which simply runs on your Android device, and can be accessed from your computer using your web browser. Another possibility (which I use regularly) is QtADB, which requires a little setup on your computer (see: Is ...

Using Android-lost is easy; Install android lost from gPlay or Google Play (You already did this) go to the Homepage of Android Lost Log in using your Google Account! Use all the nice features, let your phone ring, locate it, erase all your data or change the pin, give the thieve or finder a message etc.

Have you wiped your caches recently, done an update or updated a lot of apps? It's possible that your phone needed to rebuild the Dalvik cache, which would add time to your boot as a one time only thing. You might have seen a screen saying "Updating Android" on your Note II when that was happening. If you reboot your phone and the startup time is back to ...

There might be some apps slowing the starup. Autostarts is an app which helps you see what apps run on boot. Unless you have root you'll not be able to make any changes though. It'll just be read only. See this: Autostarts Update: Startup Cleaner 2.0 is for unrooted phones. You can now stop an app from loading at startup.
