comment How to detect who is downloading apk files in background?
@Hit You might be able to get something from the logcat , something like "starting intent download.app.whatever.it.is.called", but I'm not sure it will give you the name of the app that started it... But an app that will do that for you (if that's even feasible), it's pretty unlikely you'll ever find one. IMO your best bet might be manually trying to kill each one and see...

@RichardBorcsik It is very unlikely all his apps are running, and some task manager apps can prevent the apps from restarting (in case they do, not all apps will restart), so killing let's say 5 suspicious apps one or two at a time shouldn't be that much of a problem. Just by seeing which ones are running (and not expected to be) you would have eliminated half of the possibilities.

comment Why does the CM7 Radio FM app require bluetooth to run?
hehe thanks :) too bad android didn't set a "standard" regarding this, as it does for all the other hardware. But we can't blame it :) we should blame manufacturers here :)

comment Why does the CM7 Radio FM app require bluetooth to run?
Googling a bit, I found lots of "BT/RDS" receivers. I didn't know they were related in any way.

Ok, so I guess in the stock rom, they knew which chipset they were dealing with, so there was no need to make compatibility maximal, right? Maybe there is no way to "detect" which chipset requires what. Thanks a lot.

comment Why does the CM7 Radio FM app require bluetooth to run?
Can you elaborate a little bit? How does the headset act as an antenna and uses the Bluetooth chip? And why did it work before (is it the app just assuming the "worst-case scenario"?) Thanks for the answer anyway :)

@t0mm13b Samsung Galaxy Fit. But I don't think it's relevant as on other ROMs the FM Radio worked without this requirement.

$ dmesg or dmsg? There must be a typo in one of these :)

comment File Transfer on LAN using wifi
Sorry for late reply :) sftp://192.168.1.4/ suggests it is trying to connect via Secure FTP (or SSH). You should type in the location bar smb://192.168.1.4/ (Ctrl+L to show it in Nautilus I think). Then it will connect to that IP via Samba Protocol and not SFTP. (For the terminal emulator, my terminal emulator, that comes with CM7, can emulate Ctrl key by volume down, try VolDown+c for example. it might be some other key depending on app and settings). Hope it helps.

@HamedMomeni Ok, thanks. I asked the question too soon, but now at least it will benefit others :)
