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 ...

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, ...

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-...

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).

A few people allude to the issue of having spaces in the file name. I will clarify. Android is based on Linux, and therefore uses a posix file system. This means that file names with spaces cause issues. Don't use spaces if you are creating a file or directory; leave them out or use periods (.), dashes (-), or underscores (_). To load an existing file with ...

There is no common desktop in Android. The desktop or the better term, the Home screen and its content changes based on the Launcher currently set as default. Desktop is also no directory in Android unlike traditional Linux distributions where you can simply browse them using command-line or a file manager. Anyhow, most of the Launchers including the stock ...

I don't remember if you have that option in froyo. What I know is the following: 1) In gmail / settings / general, you can configure if you want new emails to be added to your contact list. These new contacts will be added as "other contacts", but won't have the label "my contacts", which is the main label that all your good contacts should have. 2) In ...

You can find old versions of WhatsApp here. Just navigate to the last (around the last) page to find versions compatible with Android 2.2.1. BUT because those versions are too old, I am sure after you will be asked to update to a newer version. You should know that WhatsApp has stopped working on some versions of Android as stated here: Come Saturday, ...

Sounds like you're very confused about RAM and Storage differences. This article should help you out, this is a reference to PC's but applies to Android devices also. http://www.wisegeek.org/what-is-the-difference-between-ram-and-memory.htm In layman's terms RAM is a kind of temporary storage that apps are running their data from as it's fast, however ...

Use the pre-installed app that was installed in your system. The gmail shown in your Android device is much more different than the one on PC. I suggest using/updating the GMail APP better than the browser :)

Can you do it ? Yes you can, how hard or time consuming is it going to be? A lot of time for sure. Sure you can go ahead! Many people run custom roms or build their own roms from AOSP on their android devices. You can either search for compatiable custom roms for your device else go pull a branch of AOSP and build on it!

Obviously the su binary you installed does not work well with your system. As you luckily created a backup of the original su executable, recommendation is to revert the incompatible changes first: adb shell $ oldsu # mount -o remount,rw /system # rm /system/xbin/su /system/bin/su # cp /system/xbin/oldsu /system/xbin/su # exit $ exit adb reboot Explanation:...

There is a Java application to do this, which can be found here. It's called the Real APK Leecher. It works by pretending to be an Android device (you need to configure it with your Playstore account data), so it connects to the corresponding Google services like any other Android device with the Playstore app installed, let's you browse the Playstore, and ...

Download the Android Debug Bridge from here, and extract the contents (to the same directory).

I don't know about Android Commander, but a simpler way (in my opinion) would be to use ADB. You may have already installed the Android SDK (if not, go here). I assume that you don't have modified your System Path. Move your vold.fstab to C:\Program Files\Android\android-sdk\platform-tools or C:\Program Files (x86)\Android\android-sdk\platform-tools Go to ...

When I've been unable to log-in to the Google account on an old phone or something, it will often work by logging-in to YouTube with the same credentials. YouTube is usually a default installed app. Open it up, go to the account settings and log-in using your GMail credentials. I get no futher problems with logging into GMail. It does it at the same time ...

Installing the driver from the XDA Dev website should solve this issue. (There is also a driver and a tutorial on the Unrevoked website. But the this driver didn't work for me. While the driver from the XDA Dev worked every time.) You essentially need to download the adb_driver_htc.zip file and view the hardware ID of your HTC device (Properties dialog of ...

Go into Recovery Mode (try turning off the phone and do not turn it on but press and hold the home button the volume up button and then hold the power button along with it). You need to do a Factory Reset from there and then reboot the phone.

I performed two steps to fix the issue: Settings -> Wireless & network settings -> Wi-Fi settings -> click menu button and select Advanced, Select Wi-Fi sleep policy - > Select Never. Dial *#*#526#*#* for WLAN Diagnostics. This will reload the Wi-Fi driver (I tried this before without step 1 and it rebooted my mobile).

i have seen this one worked! you have to restart the launcher of the android.

This happened everytime I restarted my phone or unmounted then mounted my SD card. Right the fix......... go into settings/applications/manage ...

I have noticed (while searching like mad to put my phone in a universal waterproof case for my handlebar, where the proximity sensor is hidden), that when the Bluetooth is on the screen stays on during a call. Also, as Brian says here, when I'm on a ride with the "Strava" app running and I receive a call, the screen goes black, but if I press the "back" ...

I think it is Simple Notification Service Thus for platforms that use push notifications (Skype, Google+, Facebook, Twitter, etc) you will see this application updated from time to time. Admittedly as a Network Security Professional, this made me pause when I saw it updated as my S4 is rooted, but turns out it is a normal item.
