It's Samsung software, built into the system in certain Samsung phones. Like the Dropbox app, it's a service to automatically upload photos you take on your phone; it connects to your "Samsung account" if you create one. It also integrates with Dropbox to sync photos to the device Gallery; if you have "Camera upload" turned on in Dropbox as well, this ...

P5110 is the Galaxy Tab 2 while P7510 is the original. The difference is that the newer ships with ICS and has a different SoC along with a slightly larger battery, while it is a lightly ticker. The P7510 came out almost a year ago. If you want future software upgrades the P5110 is a safer bet. See that datasheets for more info.

Saw this on another site: Ryan answered 4 weeks ago I was having the same issue after I updated my Galaxy S3 to Android 4.3. I think I just fixed it. Here's what I did: From the home screen, click the Apps icon Open the "Downloads" app In my case the files that kept showing up in the notification pull down were in the Other Downloads tab Click the ...

I don't know what it is, but I also just had it pop up an hour ago. As you said, persistent between apps and screens, but goes away on landscape orientation. I am on a Moto X Dev running Eclipse 4.4.2. Edit: It seems to be a feature added by the latest update from LastPass: http://blog.lastpass.com/2014/04/lastpass-adds-biometric-security-on.html Edit 2:I ...

You won't find a good "iTunes for Android" for your desktop computer, because Android was designed from the start to eliminate that dependency on a desktop computer. An iPhone uses a protocol that only iTunes understands, so iTunes is the only way to get music and photos onto it (Originally, you had to install apps through iTunes too: there was no App Store ...

Yup, so the IOS version just was updated for fingerprinting and some genius at last pass must have used the code on the android version as well. Giving us this awful useless gray brick. Brutal The second i deleted last pass, which i really cant do permantely or I would be screwed. the box went away.

You probably have to use ODIN. I've done it myself, and it worked for me. I used it to root my phone (SGS2). I've postponed it for months, afraid it would brick my phone, but it didn't. Make a backup of all important data. Find a good manual on Youtube, XDA-developers or via Google. Compare them, and see what they say. Be prepared that it can go wrong. ...

You can delete the photos via the Google+ app or web interface. From the left-hand menu, click Photos. If you haven't turned on auto-upload and don't want to, click Not now to get rid of the prompts. Then, if you're in the app, open the menu that slides in from the left again, and choose Albums from the menu; or in the web interface, click More on the top, ...

Hit the menu button (bottom left of the phone) and then click on the star (which will be at the top right of the dialog which appears). The star is only to the right of the URL on the omni bar on the desktop version of Chrome.

If it's a wall charger with plugs that match your outlets, the input range should be covered. Normal USB chargers are 5 V at up to 1.8 mA. The voltage is the main concern -- standard USB ports for PCs only go up to 900 mA, which is why they charge slower. You can see the USB power specs on Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Usb#Power (In sum, any ...

Do you mean SAMSUNG Kies, PC Sync? Try on Samsung website, choose your exact model of Galaxy, and you'll find the available software.

Samsung's OTA updates are carrier-based, as usual. Kies updates are usually regional, but not particularly restricted; you can usually select a different region when installing Kies and get updates from there. Kies updates are up to Samsung, though they would probably work with carriers on it to ensure it works well and whatnot. OTA updates are controlled ...

I'm going to presume this was a side-loaded app with a potential malware payload, since you mention you cannot find it on Google Play Store. First step is to see if the application can be prevented from uninstall because it has set itself up as a Device Administrator, sort of a protected app. See Settings>Security>Device Administrators, and deactivate both ...

mA is not the same as mAh. The former is a current rating, and the latter is the capacity of the battery. 1000 mAh means the battery can supply a current of 1000 mA (at its rated voltage) for 1 hour, or equivalently, a current of 500 mA for 2 hours, etc. It tells you how much energy the battery can hold. The number in mA printed on the phone tells you how ...

Install kies in your PC. It will automatically install corresponding USB drivers. EDIT: Samsung Kies is a freeware software application used to communicate between Windows or Mac operating systems, and more recently manufactured Samsung mobile phone and tablet computer devices, usually using a USB cable connection (though wireless LAN Kies connectivity is ...

Ideally, you should factory reset the device, so you're starting afresh. You haven't mentioned what device you have or what version of Android you're running, but usually the setting to factory restore a device is found within the main SETTINGS > BACKUP & RESET. Use the Factory reset option to erase all personal data from the device and start afresh. ...

Is there something wrong with Cyanogenmod? What you want is the stock version of android Samsung put on the phone, there is no revert as it was deleted when you put cyanogen. As you dont seem to have a copy I would go to Samsung support site or you will have to trust another source on the net and download it there. This would be another great community ...

It looks like a non-trivial issue, I'm afraid. The logcat output you provided didn't actually give the cause of the issue. May I suggest that in the meantime you use another launcher? Nova Launcher and Apex Launcher are particularly good replacements for you Note 2, or if you want to get fancy then TSF shell is fun.

Quoting the answer from XDA Forum. In linux or windows with cygwin. $ tar -H ustar -c recovery.img > recovery.tar $ md5sum -t recovery.tar >> recovery.tar $ mv recovery.tar recovery.tar.md5

You would need to use an app like SwiftKey Keyboard or SlideIt. Edit #1: Take a look @Izzy's comment. It is also possible.

Honeycomb was actually meant for devices with large screens like tablets etc.., There is no Official update for S5300. So you'll have to root your phone and install a custom ROM(such as CyanogenMod) on your phone. Keep in mind that rooting your phone will void your phone of any warranty. Also beware that any error made while flashing ROM could brick your ...

DjeMBeY has created a custom ROM on XDA which contains stock ROM, minus the bloatware. It is pre-rooted; once you flash it, you also get root. There is also a Google Play edition if that's what you want.

Is it face unlock you are asking about? If so, there is a handy guide here. It requires your phone to be rooted and have ClockworkMod Recovery installed. Here are the installation instructions from the link: Installation Instructions Before you proceed with setting up Face Unlock on your Galaxy S2, make sure that your phone: is rooted, has ...

As well as getting access to Samsung's sync and backup service, creating a Samsung account also gets you access to Samsung's app store. It's not as extensive as the main Play Store, but it has a good selection of apps. Whether you think that's a "real benefit" or not is entirely up to you.

The Samsung ROM doesn't have the stock AOSP dialer and contacts app. It has Touchwiz themed dialer and contacts app. This is one of the most glitchy and slowest of dialer apps out there. Try the Swipe Dialer if you care to. It has good reviews and seems to be working fine across the board. Another option will be to port AOSP dialer as in Cyanogenmod. This ...

Ugh, that's 4 questions in one. Our site works best with one question per post; but let me try: How to install via CWM (custom recovery)? usually, it's "install update.zip from SDCard" when the deal is to "install something via recovery". By default, there should be an update.zip file in the root of the SDCard, which you then navigate to and select. Hint: ...

No, you can't update it from Google Play. It would be like buying your phone from Carphone Warehouse and then expecting Phones4u to help you out with a problem just because they sell the same phone. Or buying a music download in Google Play and expecting to be able to download it from iTunes. You've paid Samsung for the app, not Google. If you uninstall it ...

I'm afraid you can't change it. When I set my phone's language to French (France), the first day is still Sunday, where it should be Monday (like you). Google may have skipped this...

My best guess would be an issue that is causing part of the render process of slide lock to take place in landscape mode. I have no idea why that would happen although I have had some strange screen rotation issues with my nexus 7 and a factory reset did indeed fix it. But since you don't want to turn to that here are some suggestions: -Try locking ...
