For a system independent solution, you might want to take a look at e.g. AirDroid: AirDroid runs as an app on your Android device. When you start this app, it offers you to start its service. Having done so, it displays an URL to connect to with a web browser, plus a password to authenticate. Doing so on your PC, you can manage your Android device from ...

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 ...

I finally succeeded !! (YOUHOU!! You can't believe how proud I am !) First of all, I want to indicate that links on XDA (those that goes in multiupload.com, that redirect to lnx.lu), SUCKS! I can't believe it. You have to download a "download manager", with so many related ads and apps you must install. It's a shame. (I am very angry agains't them (lnx.lu) ...

Both. Bravo is HTC's internal codename name for the Desire. They do this as they want a constant name for internal purposes as they often sell the identical device in multiple markets under different names (e.g. the HTC Magic is also sold as the HT-03A, the myTouch 3G, and has the codename Sapphire) or multiple devices (e.g. GSM and CDMA versions) under ...

Clearing internal storage will probably be a temporary relief only, as it will fill-up again in (probably short) time. However, depending on the action the "temporary span" can be quite long -- so if you are afraid to root and to follow the steps recommended in the other answers, here's a list of possibilities: uninstall apps you do not need if possible, ...

As Matthew already stated, there's no unique answer possible to your question -- all depends on your usage patterns. Generally spoken, I'd say moving app data should be preferred: If you move the Dalvik Cache, it would affect all your apps -- while moving the app data only affects apps which store some data (and by "some" I mean "data size exceeds their ...

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-...

As I noted in a comment, one thing to be aware of is that (typically) the order of the partitions matters. Android basically only looks at the first partition in the table, so you need to make sure the FAT one is first on the disk and the ext2/3/4 one is second. Otherwise Android will see the ext partition and won't know what to do with it.

As you mention GO Launcher EX as your target launcher, you are lucky: There's a complete description on how to migrate your screens, which you can find at AddictiveTips.

You installed Mod to system, so you need to reflash ROM from recovery. Erase user data (hard reset) will not help you.

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 ...

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 ...

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.
