ES File Explorer has support for several cloud storage providers. It allows to "copy" folders from your dropbox folder to your SD-Card etc in a similar fashion as you would copy files locally. The "Network" Tab allows you to add an account.

I figured this out only after months of being without most of my phone's functionality and taking it to a 3rd-party repair place that declared it "unrepairable". It is stupidly easy: Download an apk of your home launcher (I got one from here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/archive/index.php/t-1125331.html ) E-mail it to yourself Use voice commands to send ...

On Android Marshmallow, you can use the hidden System UI Tuner. Open the quick-setting panel, then press and hold the Settings' cog wheel until it starts spinning. You then get an additional settings entry in System > System UI Tuner > Status bar, where you can hide the alarm.

If you don't want use 3rd party apps: This requires decent computer skills and a rooted phone, but here are the steps for android 2.3 Gingerbread. Copy /system/home.apk from your phone to pc. Decompile home.apk using apktool. Goto [decompiled folder]/res/values/integer.xml Change <integer name="number_of_desktop_panes">5</integer>, to 7 or ...

What Akas refers to is using the Link2SD app, which is "kind of" App2SD, but much more flexible: You can get the entire app moved out (not just parts), and can even move apps you otherwise couldn't. But Akas missed one important part: your device must be rooted in order to use this special way. As to the other part of your question: Sure you could uninstall ...

From your mentioning of Titanium Backup I assume your device is rooted. So my absolute recommendation here is AutoRun Manager (and yes, you will need the Pro -- second yes, it's worth it). Having that installed, open the app, use the "advanced mode", look for the app you want to modify (in your case: Google Maps). Expand it. ARM will show you all its ...

Most video recording apps are IMHO limited to 1h non-stop recording, as you can find with a simple Google search, which is probably a safety measure to not let you run out of battery -- as video recording is the biggest consumer (see What can I do to increase battery life on my Android device?). However, a developer can have his app overriding this limit (...

Factory Reset doesn't take your device back to factory condition. It just clears all data, settings, etc. So your phone will not go back to older Android version. It will be on the upgraded Android version (or any ROM that you have installed) with all data cleared! Watch this video for more help. At 5:30 the guy answers exactly what you are asking.

FREE solution: I've had success with a fraction of a drop of water or oil over the lens of the camera on my ZTE Score. It causes bar codes close to the camera to be in focus, and they read reliably. Enough to form a convex surface, but not so much that it drops off. The ZTE Score has a smooth back; I dip my finger in oil and, with the lens aimed up, ...

Background There are several applications that use the auto-sync feature from Android to regularly update their contents. In fact, according to the Google documentation, you can configure synchronization options for any of your apps. Auto-sync is used to allow applications to synchronize data on their own schedule. This can be disabled, and accessing each ...

When you are on home screen, press the Menu button, then Edit submenu and you will have all the panels displayed. A long press on one of it will select a panel, then you will be able to move it into the trash. You will be able to reduce the number of panels but no way to have more than 7 panels on a SGS2.

Home screen has seven panels that you can customize. You can't change the number of home screen panels. The quoted part simply means that there are seven panels that can be customized to your liking e.g: add shortcuts, widgets. If you want to decrease that simply switch to a 3rd party launcher like Go launcher Ex.

I am suspecting, after reading the logcat and dump, the kernel killed off quite a few processes, whether its down to the ROM itself, or a buggy RIL (Radio Interface Layer), RIL is responsible for communicating with the cellular radio base-band firmware. This is the excerpt from the kernel, showing Dolphin, Alarm Clock, Google Voice(?) getting killed off: [...

A Subscriber Identity Module commonly known as SIM card has a storage for text (SMS) messages and contacts only. Settings (I presume you are talking about access points and GPRS/3G configuration - clarify it you mean something else) about your phone are not stored, except the carrier related parameters like message service center number, value added ...

These include the last versions of each ...

To set up your mp3 file as a ringtone, simply create a new folder on your SD Card and rename it "ringtones", without the quotes of course. (Do same for alarms, notifications and ui). After that, add your mp3 files to the folder. Go to "Setting--sound--phone ringtone", there, you will see your added mp3 file. Joseph Nwalor (Slow).

Provided you haven't rooted the device, a factory reset will reset the phone to the state it was in. Note that sometimes, some extra content that was added by the manufacturer (like some bundled music/images) later may be wiped. Obviously, if you're bundling along the same SD card that you were using earlier, format it and also run it through shredder ...

The process is explained pretty well on Samsung's official page, found here. Just download Kies, install it, plug in your phone, wait for it to be recognized and upgrade.

CyanogenMod has a good overview with many devices and a full update guide per device (Captivate as example here). Here is an explanation of commonly used terminology (fastboot, adb…). There are some differences between manufacturers/brands: Google: very easy, with standard tools (adb, fastboot) Sony: rather easy, all standard tools + special tool (...

App specific settings are usually stored in the internal storage folder accessible only to that app. While apps do have the ability to write to external storage and lose access to that data when you mount it, I doubt that is the case here. When you install and move an app to the SD Card, you are not moving the entire app. Some core content of the app still ...

If you get an error like "insufficient memory", "storage low", or the like, this usually refers to the /data partition. That is not only where user-installed apps go to, but also their data. You tried to free some space by deleting "pre-installed apps". They are usually referred to as "system apps", as they reside on the /system partition. So deleting them ...

I was able to install Google Play Services by browsing to its page at https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.gms and then logging in, clicking install, and choosing my phone. Come to think of it, I might start installing more apps this way, from the comfort of a desktop browser. :) Anyway, I'm able to use the Google+ app again. I'...

If your phone is rooted, you can partition your SD card and move Google Play Services app on to your SD card. That could free up a lot of space. You can use this method to safely transfer all your apps(except the system apps) to your SD card. The procedure for partitioning and transferring can be found here. http://www.aroundandroid.com/tag/how-to-increase-...
