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 ...

You should be able to wipe via the recovery however, this will wipe all the data on the device including contacts, apps, pictures and videos. Turn the power off. If your HTC Desire is frozen, pull the battery out and reinsert it Hold the Volume Down button Press and release the Power button You are now presented with a menu that allows for Fastbook, ...

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-...

My phone is working on 4.1.1 and I downloaded and installed the application, it worked fine. No problems at all. XDA seems to be a reliable source. I used it to type this answer and I'm going to uninstall it as I have paid version of SwiftKey. I'll post a comment whether it uninstalls or not.

Your phone's headphone jack is failing. When you buy new phones, the plug is a nominal dimension (3.5 mm is the standard, but the specification is surely much more precise than that). After inserting and removing the plug a few hundred times, the tip and rings wear, reducing their size a tiny bit. The same wear occurs on the spring-loaded contacts inside ...

This applies to the original HTC Desire, codename Bravo. The instructions have been tested to work on the GSM version of the phone with Android 2.3.3. How to enter Safe Mode Power off the phone. Press and hold down the menu button, and then press and let go of the power button, but continue holding the menu button. The phone will power on and start booting....

I have looked into this issue before, and as it stands at the moment, native android does not support exFAT or NTFS. Support for additional formatting types are included in some ROMs because they have been specifically coded to do so such as AFAIK which I believe supports NTFS. I think you are stuck with FAT32 unless you wish to root and flash a ROM that ...

Even if such notifications look "official", they rarely are. They are specifically styled in a way to make them appear such, to betray people thinking that and tempt them to install the "stuff" behind. But one is more likely to install some malware that way, often a Trojan – like in your case: Its permanent switching on of network functionality suggests it's ...

EDIT after reading your comments: AFAIK, It's not possible.

Open menu and select call Open the call setting and select SIM 1 or 2 setting Open GSM call setting Uncheck cell broadcast options Your problem is solved.

The device does not support all of the features, candy crush requires, and therefor the play store will not allow you to install it. You can attempt to download the APK from the interweb or try an alternative repository. Amazon app store perhaps?

Use this App to move your apps from Internal storage to Sd Card https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.IQBS.android.app2sd

Unlikely to be possible in this context, as Dalvik cache has a fixed system-wide location (/data/dalvik-cache). So you cannot have "linked apps place their dalvik cache directly on SD". Either all or nothing. Take a look at the app2sd tag-wiki for alternative approaches which might allow to move the entire dalvik cache to your SDCard. But a selective move ...

It depends on the device, and what you mean by "2.xx". Do you want A: stock Android? B: a ROM? C: a manufacturer-skinned stock image? I'm going to assume that the answer do the question above is D: Any of the above. I'm also going to assume that by "2.xx", you mean 2.3. There are a few general requirements that will need to be fulfilled for it to be ...

clockworkmod is a custom recovery, so the device is probably rooted. A 128 MB SDCard is as good as no SDCard at all, and probably cannot even hold a single image to flash. You might want to check for a bigger one, everything below 4 GB makes not much sense (make sure to buy nothing below class-4, class-6 is better, class-10 not really necessary). After that,...

Just install the WhatsApp on your new phone, and sign-in with the same number. WhatsApp will automatically stop forwarding the message to your old phone, and you'll start receiving the messages on your new phone. To uninstall WhatsApp from your phone, you can go to Settings > Application Manager > Scroll down to WhatsApp > Click on it > Click on ...

Uninstall Whatsapp from Google Play or from the phone's Application Manager (In the Samsung Galaxy S4, Settings > More > Application Manager). If it's a pre-installed app and cannot be uninstalled by regular means, clear its data via Application Manager. In the Application Manager, click Whatsapp and you might see buttons like Clear data and Clear ...

I gave up and returned the phone to the guy I bought it from on eBay, saying it was faulty. My conclusion was that it was an intermittent hardware fault.

The HTC Desire by default allocates 250 MB of its internal memory for the /system partition, 40 MB for /cache partition and 147 MB for /data partition. The ROMs are usually packed in ZIP files and are usually about 155 MB in size. However, they do get bigger when unpacked. Here's how to verify that you will be able to flash a custom ROM on your phone. ...

I will try to answer my own question here. The short answer is: get a ROM that just works! (No, not a room, a ROM! Get a ROM!) Here is the same screenshot image of the SD & phone storage menu, this time with a ROM called SuperNova. You can find an installation guide here. As you can see from the image I now have 1.86 GB of internal storage space. No ...

The problem is solved by restarting the phone.

Take a look at this forum: http://www.htcforums.com/desire-x/12477-updated-4-1-1-no-fm-radio.html. The only other way (I know) to get a fm radio on your device is to root it or install an .apk from outside the Play Store.

Since HTC provides a tool to unlock the bootloader on there phones why not use the official tool... http://www.htcdev.com/bootloader/

Create an ext4 partition with 1Gb space (for example). Then, the first time you enter the ROM, type in terminal emulator: su a2sd xdata y y Now, you have 1Gb internal memory.

I found now a solution myself: First, cat /etc/resolv.conf isn't a valid way to display the used DNS servers under Android. Use getprop net.dns1 instead. In my case the DNS server wasn't the Google server as set in /etc/resolv.conf, instead it was one of my ISP which accepts only requests from IPs in its network but my OpenVPN server is in another network. ...

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 ...

I am on Android 2.3.3 with root, S-OFF and custom ROM (SuperNova) and I can confirm now that the option to toggle between Fast boot enabled and Fast boot disabled is available. Now, to properly answer my own original question, this is how you would disable it on HTC Desire. Press Menu button. Tap Settings. Tap Applications. Remove the checkmark from the ...

I am an authorized dealer for metro PCS and we have to warranty out the device as this Is a hardware error from the manufacturer. It happens every now and then. So take your device(s) to your local dealer and warranty your phone. No matter of rooting will help this as it is a hardware defect.
