An Android, iOS and C# developer by day and a Linux enthusiast by night. I also enjoy web development (mostly Python), video games, chess, soccer, and voiding warranties.

I currently own a Nexus 5, a Nexus 10, and a Nook HD. I generally run a slightly self-modified version of CyanogenMod on my Nexus devices.

comment Where does Google Music store the “offline tracks”?
Your ROM probably doesn't have the sqlite3 binary. SuperOneClick has a copy (in the "Dependencies" folder). You could push it onto your device with adb to use it (this Stack Overflow answer has some instructions)

comment Where does Google Music store the “offline tracks”?
@roboguy12: Well, I guess one way to figure out what it's doing would be to query the music database. It stores the path to the file as one of the columns in the MUSIC table, so the query I noted above should show you where they are. That's how I found the folder on my device initially.

@roboguy12: That's strange, I've never seen them stored anywhere else. What version of Google Music do you have and what kind of phone is it?

comment Move angry birds progress from one device to another (cross-platform)
Well half of this at least is more of an iOS question. Can you access the save file on the iPhone in any way? If not then the Android half (getting it onto the right spot on the new device) is kind of moot.

comment Where does Google Music store the “offline tracks”?
@roboguy12: No, it only wipes the app's database, and therefore all of its entries. The files themselves are on the SD card in the folder I noted above. You can simply delete them with a file explorer or from your computer by plugging in your phone and accessing it as a USB storage device.

comment 3G icon won't change with Miui themes
If you've got a file explorer that works with root permissions you could just copy it on to your SD card, then move that over to your computer. Otherwise you can try the CyanogenMod wiki's instructions for setting up the SDK/adb: wiki.cyanogenmod.com/wiki/… (I think you can ignore the JDK stuff at the top of the page, you shouldn't need it just for adb).

comment 3G icon won't change with Miui themes
I guess they might have forgotten to change the icon in the framework-res.apk file or something of that nature. You'd need to pull /system/framework/framework-res.apk and extract it to check the drawables.

This isn't enough information. The specific device you have makes a big difference.

comment Lost sound on my Xperia X8?
If everything looks correct from a software/settings perspective then I suppose you may want to consider the possibility that your speaker itself is broken. Most phones nowadays have separate speakers for media sounds and calling, so from what you described that seems possible.

comment How do I disable the “Select input method” Notification?
Do you have an external keyboard paired/plugged in or anything of that sort? That's the only time I've seen it appear, personally.
