Most probably your internal memory is too low. You can't access it without rooting your device. And it won't be visible in your PC/desktop anyways with a USB connection. (it can't be mounted) From what I understand your HTC Desire device has 512 MB of internal ROM which is used for both your stock firmware and user installed apps. The 512 MB storage ...

If you have a fastboot-enabled bootloader then it should be pretty simple. Just put the system.img file somewhere on your PC, connect your device via a USB cable, reboot into your bootloader's fastboot mode and then: fastboot flash system /path/to/system.img If you don't have fastboot then you'll have to jump through some more hoops. One option would be to ...

Just as an addition: I stumpled across the same (plus another problem) while upgrading my nexus 5 from Lollipop to Marshmallow. Every time when the phone was at sleep mode (for example: while driving my car and phone rested in the pocket) and I walked into a know wifi it did not auto connect. Usually when I arrived at work, as soon as I exited at the ...

Most superuser apps don't allow adb su access by default. Depending on the app you used the option may vary in location, but basically you need to go to settings in the superuser app and change it from "apps only" to "apps and adb." This should allow you to use su in an adb shell.

Yes, it is possible to transfer using an OTG cable. But you require at least one of the phones to support OTG, and it is better explained here. The phones mentioned in the post are Xperia and Micromax. I am sure it will work with the rest of the OTG-supported phones too.

I'll put this altogether here. Google and some OEMs don't seem to be supporting FM anymore, as evident in the Nexus 4 and 5 not having any FM hardware built in. The Samsung Galaxy S4 also are carrying on this trend. The theory being that there are Internet raido services that can stream thousands of channels. Which doesn't suit everyone. The theory is that ...

I found I could multi select pics by touching the first one, holding my finger on the screen, and then dragging across the screen to the last one. They all turn to selected as I pass over them. A bit like selecting text with a mouse on a PC!

As Shywim wrote, direct access from your Windows PC is limited to certain directories – by default. But there are some helpers available to give you more details. Some examples include: DavDrive Lite – make the local file system available via WebDAV. This would require another 3rd party tool on your Windows PC (some WebDAV client) FTPServer – a small and ...

You most probably left some residuals of the (moved) app on your SD card. The easiest way to remove that would probably to pull out the SD card and remove the moved app on your computer (it's not accessible on your phone easily). For example, the full path to the moved tricorder app on my phone is: /mnt/sdcard/.android_secure/org.hermit.tricorder-1.asec ...

On Marshmallow, go to settings, battery, pull down battery optimization, All apps, select Google Connectivity Services, select not optimized. This solve the problem for me. WiFi always stays on, even during sleep.

Enter download mode by powering down the device and then holding both VOL_DOWN and POWER to power it back up. It will boot to a screen saying hTC download mode. The 3rd line of the displayed info will say something like htc_oceuhl PVT S-ON. uhl corresponds to the single-SIM variant, dugl is the international dual-SIM variant, and dtwl is the Chinese dual-...

Extracted from UltraPixel vs Megapixel: HTC One & iPhone 5 Camera Shoot-Out: Ultra-Pixels: Basically the sensor on the HTC One features larger pixels for better low light sensitivity and, on paper, better overall camera performance. [...] We have to understand that “ultrapixel” is just HTC’s marketing team saying that the pixels on the HTC ...

You can try Market Helper; requires ROOT. Market Helper is a tool for Android that helps users to be able to change/fake their rooted devices to any other devices. For example, it can turn your Nexus 7 into Samsung Galaxy S3 in a few seconds. No reboot is required.

Long tap in your main launcher window --> (Personalize menu pops)--> click on "Display" --> Lockscreen --> Settings. You can only switch between application, but you cannot have more than 4.

ROM Manager doesn't do anything particularly special to install a custom ROM. It essentially makes a call to the recovery binary that allows it to save instructions for your recovery partition to run the next time it boots, thereby automating the process of flashing whatever zip file you choose. You could do the exact same thing manually. Therefore, if your ...

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, ...

If your phone is not rooted, then you can't access the "OS" or the "programms". When you plug your phone, you can only browse its internal and/or external storage in a file explorer. If you are not rooted, you can use adb to browse the "OS", but you can only view it and you can not access /data folder. If you are rooted, you can access and write all to the ...

You don't use adb to connect to a device when it's in the bootloader menu: you need to use the fastboot command instead. That's why it's called "fastboot mode"! Not all phones support fastboot: in particular, older HTC phones use a proprietary protocol called HBOOT instead, but I think the newer ones support fastboot.

The compression is actually performed by your carrier. Almost all mobile network carriers compress images to reduce bandwidth use on slow mobile connections. You can avoid the compression by switching to a Wi-Fi network, or using an HTTPS connection to the website you want: since HTTPS is secured from interception, the carrier can't replace the pictures ...

I had the same promblem. A solution which worked for me was an app "MP4Fix", which you can get in google play for free. It repaired my video in a few sec and placed it in different folder (it kept corrupted video in the same place and also created new repaired one). I know this info might be too late for you but it might help some others.

You're absolutely correct with your assumption a factory-reset will delete all your apps and data (as you also can find in the factory-reset tag-wiki). If you want to backup your contacts and SMS, I'm afraid there's no native way. While the contacts you could sync with Google, the same cannot be said for SMS. But if you take a look at google play, searching ...

You can use Font Installer. This app requires ROOT.

If fastboot is installed on the handset (or commonly called bootloader), it might be best to re-flash via usage of USB cable and the handset with the cable plugged in. In order to achieve this, a original image file is needed for this to work. The essence of fastboot, is that from the command line, the handset can be re-formatted and told to boot specific ...

Free Option: NextRadio by Sprint says specifically it is not a streaming services, but uses the FM tuner in your phone. It says it is only for a few Sprint phones, but appears to be installable on my Galaxy Nexus and Moto X, so it should be available for your HTC One Play Edition. About: Key Features: Tune in to local FM stations on your phone ...

The standard FMRadio is designed specifically for that chipset employed by the HTC One, you will have difficulty in finding support for that said chipset hence the Radio FM apps you see on the Play-Store may not have the support for it. Vital questions: Which HTC One model are you referring to? After consulting PDADB.net there seems to be a few of them? ...

You need to re-flash your recovery in fastboot. Make sure you use the correct recovery for your device and carrier. (I can provide links if needed.) Your rooted so I will assume you have successfully achieved S-Off which requires proper adb drivers and fastboot. boot to fastboot (hold power + vol down) and connect USB cable flash nameofrecovery.img (from ...

Linux is absolutely the best way to do this sort of things. This is a thread on xda about how to set the development environment on Linux Ubuntu in particular http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2302780 Follow these steps and you'll have fastboot command set up to do the unlocking process. Plus you won't need any driver to let the system ...

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.

The easiest and fastest way to move over pictures/albums from your phone to your computer is using a USB cable and connecting your device to your computer. If you have a Windows PC, your device should automatically come up. If you have a Mac. You will need to download a tool called Android File Transfer. I will provide you with the links below. Anyways, it'...

Works also in Total Commander, an otherwise very clever and powerful two pan file manager: long-tab the icon of the first file, in the menu choose SELECT or DESELECT, glide till the other end of the range, tap the last desired icon, and voila!
