The goal may seem to be switching the keyboard app when the password is to be entered, but the real issue is to protect the password from being logged by third-party keyboard apps, or at least be restricted from being uploaded somewhere. In that case, I suggest using a firewall so that you can restrict any app from connecting to Internet, let alone it can ...

This is probably NOT an Android issue, but would be true for any device with a smaller view port. See the SVG Specification about things that would limit the field of view. Most likely a combination of transform, viewbox, and canvas. If you believe these are correctly stated in your code, some other combination will maybe serve better. If not stated at all, ...

To find all apps with a specific permission, there's a much easier way then checking them each manually: use a Permission Checker. I'd recommend taking a look at aSpotCat, which is around for quite a while (I remember it even back from Eclair in 2011 :) [] aSpotCat allows you to browse your installed apps by permissions (and more, see first screenshot). ...

I use a Microsoft Wedge keyboard and what solved it for me was installing SwiftKey or some other keyboard alternative and setting that as the default instead of the Samsung one. This is a fantastically annoying default shortcut that's impossible to turn off and easily identifiable to anyone using an external keyboard and writing in English, every single ...

You can turn your device into a Wifi Hotspot (there is an option in the general settings, usually with the other connectivity settings). Generally, you will need to pay your Cellphone provider to allow you to use this particular feature (although there are ways to get around this - but that is another thread). Bottom line, there is an option in the ...

I actually got it to work by disabling the screen filtering app. I had applied bluelight filter which decreases the opacity of screen. Anyhow I turned it off and the backup worked. I wasn't able to download apk's so this helped. If u have any apps that run on top of most apps or something like that as it was explained in this youtube video, I would disable ...

The clipboard (like on Windows for instance) can hold different types of data. Raw images (like your screenshot) are one of those possible clipboard contents and thus you can paste them in, given that the app you use allows you to paste image data from your clipboard. The supported data types that the clipboard can hold are mentioned in the Android ...

Update will took some time to become available in every country. If you check on Sammobile, 5.0.2 was released today (2015-07-16), and it is for United Kingdom. There no version for other countries. You can flash UK version via Odin, but better wait some days for it to get released for other countries. After that you should be able to update it via OTA, ...

ODIN is the application that you will have to use in order to flash the updates files on your Galaxy Tab 4. Make sure that you don’t have any antivirus app running nor the Samsung KIES program. Enable ...

Reflashing the device is overkill for this me thinks - When you plug your device in, can you see it in your device list in Windows? (Search for "Devices and Printers", or go to Control Panel > Devices and Printers) If Yes: Try a different USB cable. I've owned several Samsung devices and they're picky about USB cables. Try to use the one that came with the ...

If the device has been factory reset, you won't be able to locate it using Android Device Manager. You could try asking Samsung but I doubt they can do this, especially on a device without data.

This seems like a simple-ish fix. Assuming you are rooted, open a root-ready file manager, and go to /system/etc. Find a file called hosts. Go into it, and delete it all, other than the first line, which should say: 127.0.0.1 localhost (if it does not, change it to that) Then you should be fine (May need reboot) If you are not rooted, go onto your ...

While this isnt for your device. It might work out for ya. Take a look at this post on XDA. It talks about remapping keys on the Droid 4, which also has a physical keyboard. http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1517260

Chances are the factory ROM has the preloadinstaller.apk, and will reinstall any app that isnt installed, forget if it is every reboot or only on the first one. But I would root, install a file browser that supports root, Search for preloadinstaller.apk then rename/delete it. Then remove the apps. That should stop the apps from reinstalling once they are ...

You can get out of this download mode by pressing and holding Power button for 10-20 seconds while its inside download mode. Alternatively, you can also simply pull out and reinsert battery and start your phone normally. Unless you are flashing a firmware or similar, this wont cause any harm to your phone.

If you are talking about the Samsung keyboard, which was derived from SwiftKey, DROP EVERYTHING AND RUN! Just kidding. Although you might want to take off your data and reset your phone. If you think you are vulnerable, STOP USING THE DEVICE. Samsung keyboards are baked into the ROM. There has been reports, and ugly ones too: even if you disable the ...

If it get really warm (greater than 35C) try Clean Master (like reachrk suggested) and Battery Doctor. Clean Master will clear the RAM, which when loaded will cause the CPU to overheat dramatically trying to process all the data. Battery Doctor will close all background apps, limiting power consumption and thus reducing heat generation.

My guess is that the underlying hardware that makes the screen run is damaged. In a touchscreen, or all monitors in general, a complex series of wires sends electrical impulses to the individual led diodes (a set of Red, Green, Blue is called a pixel). If one of the main wires became damaged or loosened, it will seriously mess up the screen's viewing output. ...
