The message is basically telling you that you don't have the correct bootloader version on your device; specifically, you most likely have an older ICS bootloader rather than the Jelly Bean one. You can read a bit about this on CyanogenMod's Google+ page, and the CM Wiki page for the S3 succinctly notes: Going forward, CM10.1 is no longer compatible with ...

Sometimes the culprit is much easier to solve: If accessing secured websites (https:) via the browser fails as well, make sure your date/time settings are correct -- otherwise certificates will fail. Best explained using an example: Say, today the date is May 28th 2013 -- but your device's date/time is set to January 1st 2010. Now you visit a secure ...

Just tested this on my phone and my gmail, and it seems to work. I'm running 4.4 with the stock Contacts app on my phone. On your phone, in the Contacts app: menu button -> import/export contacts Choose export to storage and it will create a .vcf file to /storage/emulated/0/ which is the root folder for storage Transfer this file via email, or usb to a ...

I just went through the same issue. Definitely solved now. At first I had a very bad connection speed even on H+ or 3G. On spotify app the "bad connection" problem turned to "no connection" so I decided to investigate. The problem was my network AP which was configured over "WAP" which is not a real full featured Internet connection. So I had to switch to ...

In GSM/CDMA auto mode, the mobile uses its energy to keep updated on the network that surrounds you. That's why many people complain heavy battery useage when on GSM/CDMA auto mode. In finding a CDMA network it would try to switch to that network. And at this moment you experience a disconnection for few milliseconds. The ideal way would be to manual switch ...

As you've got your device with a contract, this added a special barrier to updates. Short explanation how that goes: Google (or rather the AOSP, Android Open Source Project) releases a new Android version. This is usually immediately available to Nexus devices -- but... Device manufacturers need to adapt it to their hardware (drivers etc.) and, in many ...

Your native camera app does not support picture effects as the Sony Devices with JB update. So you have to go for a third party camera app. There are several good apps out there. FishEye Camera Photo Effects Pudding Camera FxCamera

As "ART" versus "Dalvik" is a setting the user can switch, a factory-reset should restore its previous (default) state – in this case, revert it to "Dalvik". Reportedly, the following steps solved the issue in this case: Complete wipe, including Dalvik Cache and data (can be done from recovery-mode, and is equivalent to a factory-reset) Re-flashing the ROM ...

If your phone is stuck in recovery mode, you can try these steps to force it to boot to Android: Remove the battery, wait a couple of minutes, then put the battery back in. Turn on phone and see if it still boots into recovery mode. If it does still boot into recovery mode, hold down "Volume Up" button and then press the Power button. The recovery menu ...

Its simple. There are hidden magnets in the front part of the flip cover. These magnets tell the device that Sview flip cover is attached. The glass window that is on the cover is conductive, through which you can operate only that much part of the screen leaving the rest of the screen non operable to avoid accidental touch. The idea behind is just like the ...

If the Galaxy S is rooted, you could use Titanium Backup to back up the app including its data. If the Nexus is rooted as well, you could try restoring this backup there directly; with some luck, the entire app works there as well, and there's nothing else to do. If not (or the restored app won't work on the Nexus), you could extract the app's database file ...

On these phones, the behaviour you describe can be caused by a corrupted SD card filesystem. The media scanner runs all the time, trying to read the SD card. This problem immediately suggested itself as a possibility as it would be natural to move the same SD card to your new phone, transferring the problem there. That would explain why it started right ...

The default governor on the GT-I9500 is called "ondemand-sec". I'm running the XXUEMJ9 firmware (Android 4.3). It's a modified version of the ondemand governor. Here is a listing in /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpufreq: root@ja3g:/sys/devices/system/cpu/cpufreq # ls -al drwxr-xr-x 5 0 0 0 Nov 14 12:38 . drwxr-xr-x 9 0 0 ...

The most obvious explanation is that the file is incomplete: there's only a small fraction of the file there, or only the first section of the file is readable. Given that the symptoms you report in your other question point to SD card failure, that seems the most likely cause for this too. If this is a different SD card, it could be that the card itself ...

It looks like having the screen turn on when SMS messages arrive is a stock feature of the Samsung Galaxy S4 on Verzion (possibly applies to other models and carriers as well). I saw threads here and here discussing the problem. There is no setting to disable only the screen turning on. The workaround that I ended up using is as follows: 1) Disable ...

Is the USB icon on the VirtualBox enabled on the guest OS. If that's disabled, the USB on the host side will not pass it through the guest, this requires the handset plugged in host side. It's a small icon on the bottom of the VM window, near the hard disk where it shows blinking activity? Click on that, to enable USB pass-through. Are you intending to ...

I also had a boot loop today, after flashing Semaphore's ClockworkMod Recovery according to these instructions, then trying to boot to recovery mode. What helped me out was the hint at the bottom of that page: to use Replicant's recovery.img instead: heimdall flash --KERNEL recovery.img --no-reboot

First, if your source is a file, adb push requires the target to be a file as well. Hence, the correct syntax would be: adb push cm.zip /sdcard/cm.zip Second, a factory-reset usually doesn't touch the SDCard (internal or external), unless there's an option offered to do so and you checked that. As for the link error: That looks like something on the ...

In some (most) jurisdictions, this is legally not allowed and may fall under wiretapping laws. It would also allow easy covert surveillance by 3rd party apps and would scare most users while only a minority would benefit from it and ise it in the intended way. Think of rogue apps (blackmailing the owner), cheated wifes/husbands wiretapping their SO, the ...

I do not know the partition mapping of the SGS, so my only suggestion would be to use the GUI (heimdall-frontend) and select the recovery partition only. As of restoration of the original system, my suggestion is to reflash the original ROM without touching /data. But backup it first using an advanced custom recovery like this one if possible: ...

The official Firmware runs Touchwiz, which is a known Resourcehog, in addition to 2.x having known occasional performance issues with the Mediascanner. I recommend flashing the latest stable CyanogenMod release. Although you will sacrifice a few features, such as FM Radio - which can be restored with specific Kernels and Apps which use the functionality, ...

First you need to know if your phone is CDMA or GSM. If it's a CDMA phone then it cannot be unlocked. GSM phones can be unlocked to make it work with other networks. If you want to unlock your phone for free you can root your phone but it is at your own risk. Also rooting voids your warranty. Safer method is to get an unlock code from the unlock code ...

I had the same issue and recently found a perfect solution by accident. While viewing the playlist that contains the song you wish to use as a ringtone (on the apollo media player),a longpress on the song you want to use will give you a list of options; among that list will be "use as ringtone". Simply select, and enjoy your new ringtone! This only works for ...
