After probing the firewall logs, it appears that the grey/blue icon is triggered depending on whether or not your device has access to Google Play. In our case, I had to open tcp-udp port 5228 (as per http://support.google.com/googleplay/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=2651367) and after turning wifi off and back on again, the icon became blue. I can't ...

The steps to take with an app that just isn't working properly are: From Settings | Applications | Manage applications | <application> or Settings | Apps | <application> (depends on your version of Android) Force stop if that doesn't help Clear cache if that doesn't help Clear data if that doesn't help Restart the device (turn ...

Update: Try cleanup and reinstall of drivers as mentioned here. Seems to have worked for others. This seems to be a known issue, and many have had success by using a different cable, connecting to a USB 3 port etc, but clearly, those won't work in your case. Not sure what your usual usage is, but for file transfers, you can use Airdroid, which connects ...

You don't use adb to connect to a device when it's in the bootloader menu: you need to use the fastboot command instead. That's why it's called "fastboot mode"! Not all phones support fastboot: in particular, older HTC phones use a proprietary protocol called HBOOT instead, but I think the newer ones support fastboot.

Also experienced the same problem. In my case, discovered that the cause was from doing a backup in QPST and forgetting to revert the USB settings. i.e. *#7284# to access PhoneUtil > "Qualcomm USB Settings" > set it to "MTP + ADB"

Do you have custom recovery installed? I have had this problem twice on a Galaxy S2, and what fixed it for me every time was running a permissions fix from recovery mode. If that doesn't work, try deleting your WiFi config file. Not sure what it is on the Nexus, but I'm guessing it'll be something along the lines of /data/misc/wifi/wpa_supplicant.conf or ...

I had same problem and endlessly researched and did everything except hard reset. Then, when testing the usb cable on another phone, I realized that I wasn't using the usb cable that came with my Galaxy S3 i9300. Once I plugged in the "stock" usb cable, my phone was instantly recognized. Why this is I don't know as the cable I had been using works on all ...

Download MPT (Media Transfer Protocol) Porting Kit and then install it to your computer. You can download the MPT Porting Kit installation file through the Microsoft’s official website directly. Reboot your computer. Reconnect your mobile phone to your computer by using the USB cable.

You don't type. You scan in barcodes of the numbers you need. See step 6 of this guide for the barcodes. These barcodes can also be found on page 1-21 of the manual.

It turns out that the issue was that Location Reporting was enabled. Disabling this misfeature increased my battery life almost three-fold, stopped the notification popups (which I've since learned are called toasts), and now the spooks will have only a slightly harder time to find out where I've been.

Apps and their data are stored on a different partition (/data) from media (/sdcard0) and removable storage (/sdcard1). If you are rooted, you can use an app like Disk Usage to check what's taking up space on your internal memory.

First of all try booting it into recovery mode. To enter recovery mode turn the device off and hold VOL UP, VOL DOWN, HOME and POWER. When the phone vibrates let go of the buttons and it should boot into recovery mode. Now using the volume keys to move up and down the list and the power button to select, go to wipe data/factory reset. Select yes. Wait for ...

I'm not sure of the Motorola methodology for answering or ignoring a call, but on my Samsung, merely touching the green or red button is insufficient; it requires a swipe to convey the intention. I believe this was re-engineered to prevent accidental accepts or hangups through a mere button press. The green button has green arrows and a swipe in the arrow ...

I am using the same version of the OS on my HTC One X and I have never had this problem before. So I am thinking this is maybe a problem concerning the hardware of your phone. Maybe you should contact HTC for this problem. They can probably help you some more. But you could always try to do a hard factory reset (this is something which HTC support will ask ...

There are several steps/things you can do before you do advanced troubleshooting. Most of the problems can be solved following these steps. Backup your data. Backup your data first (of course, if possible). You don't need to risk it. Keep it somewhere else. It is better to have backups for personal data and app data separately. Try rebooting your device. ...

This can have multiple reasons. First thing to look for is always whether a "user app" might have caused this. This can be done by booting into safe-mode: if everything works here, at least the hardware is fine, and the system as well. In that case, next steps would be: Boot into recovery-mode, and clear (wipe) cache. This is possible on rooted and ...

After a lot of searching around and trial and error I stumbled across the answer to this. 1) What is the location on the Internal Memory that is considered as Device Memory? I mean is it a Folder? Yes. Device Memory is calculated from the Data folder present under root. 2) How exactly does Android go about calculating that "Apps & Media" ...

There are some ways to pin down your problem. The easiest way should be reading out the last_kmsg which is normally stored under /proc/last_kmsg. The kernel logs everything in there and it can be read until the next reboot. So reading last_kmsg always shows things that happened before the device rebooted the last time. Another way would be using "adb ...

Yes, tcpdump is an administrator-level application (I highly doubt there will ever be an Android permission level to view all other apps' network traffic). Once rooted, if you have tcpdump binary (compiled for your device's cpu type) on sdcard, try: su mount -o remount rw /system/ cd /sdcard cp ./tcpdump /system/xbin Now you can use tcpdump command. ...

I had the same problem as everyone else and tried EVERYTHING listed as a resolution. I then did the following and it worked: Type in code *#7284# which will bring you to the phoneutil screen with PDA, Modem, and QualComm USB Setting options. Click the Qualcomm USB Driver option and select the MTP + ADB option a little message will appear @ the button of ...

There are apps that let you look at the system log, like CatLog. What I would do is start logging before you charge it at night and then take a look at the result in the morning. The log will probably be staggering but the errors should show up in red.

I think this part of your question is key: I've switched from DHCP to static IP addresses. Doing so reduced the frequency of problems and seems to have eliminated my earlier issue where wifi would be randomly dropped. IP addressing issues could certainly cause you troubles like this. Static addressing is only treating the symptoms, though, not curing ...
