Get this Air Push Detector app to find out what is creating those notifications. Then uninstall the app(s) that are creating them.

AFAIK, you can't. But, you can customise when to kill background apps (not selective app) by tweaking MinFree values set by Android (root is required for tweaking). If you have problems dealing with it, there are many apps in Play Store for that. My fav is AutoKiller Memory Optimizer. And, when foreground app and/or kernel runs out of memory, killing ...

No, The DroidX can not run custom kernels. "It is still impossible to flash custom kernels on the Droid X, but the ROM developer community has matured to a point where they’re able to make great things happen on this phone without having to rely on changes to the kernel."

This depends on the features that come with your Droid X, as they may be slightly different than other brands of Android phones. On my phone (Cyanogenmod 7.1 Gingerbread) there is a setting under Menu -> Settings -> Call Settings -> Blacklist, and another forum user says in Android 2.1 there is an option under Menu -> settings -> call ...

A short Google search for "spmo file" reveals that these are "SpeedView Meta Object" files and speed up the display of images. They're probably some sort of cache file and should be automatically recreated if you delete them.

EDITED Found the official source where can be read that the Motorola Droid X build was renamed to shadow: Also worthy of note: the new release files have a slightly modified naming-scheme, including the codename instead of the commercial/common name in the filename. So the following is a handy “translation chart” to make sure you don’t mis-identify your ...

You cannot execute either binary or shell script that resides on the external sdcard due to the execute permission bit being blocked. Either move the script temporarily to a location other than sdcard (if you're not rooted - you're in a bit of a spot there...) After reading the posting on xda, it would appear that something is amiss, notify the developer ...

One baseline for measuring phone performance is the Quadrant Score. Here is the quadrant score for Droid X with FroYo and Gingerbread. This site shows various quadrant scores for the Droid X with CM7, as well as unofficial versions of Gingerbread and FroYo. There are some debates about the usefulness of the Quadrant Score - hopefully since these are ...

The AirPush Detector App is way to go (+1 Bryan). It very nicely also lets you quickly uninstall the offending app. Just in case people are looking, there is also an Airpush Permanent Opt out from AirPush.com; they also suggest entering your IMEI at their site... I have not done either and suggest you do not do such things too. In a way this seems like an ...

I had the same problem, deleting the cache of the player I am using, Winamp for Android, did not help as it apparently retrieves the list of media files from the OS. I solved by deleting (actually renaming) the Android Media Scanner external database: cd /data/data/com.android.providers.media/databases mv external.db external.db.off reboot After the ...

After doing some more research, I found a thread with a lot of users having the same exact problem: Their solution is to use either Headset Blocker or Disable Autoplay apps. This seems to have sort of worked. Just make sure that taskkiller isn't disable either of these. I am still experimenting on how to fix this issue... Edit1: I still see the same ...

It appears that restarting it helped. Now the top, notification bar and the dialer appear. I think it may have something to do with the Messages app. As I unassociated my email account before restarting the phone.

You probably found the correct location (if your "root of the device" refers to the root of your sdcard). For details on those directories, please check with Is there any documentation on the correct/expected directory structure of the external memory card?. One thing which however may apply: For those files to become available with your settings, the Media ...

You don't need to make your own folders. The proper file to put the mp3s is /system/media/audio/ - where you will find folders for /alarms , /notifications , and /ringtones There are two things to keep in mind when doing this: If you are using full-sized .mp3's , you will put considerable strain on the system when it comes time to load one. In my ...

The contacts is actually an app, hence as other Android apps store it's data, this app also stores in a SQLite database. Images are part of contact data and are spotted in database. It is stored in /data/data/com.Android.providers/contacta/databases/contracts.db

I had the same problem. After reading kevinf's answer, I found the solution by checking the general Google sync settings. Gmail was not checked! Settings->Accounts/Google->YourEmail@gmail.com Last synced MM/DD/YYYY 12:00 PM->List of Google Sync Settings. As a side note, the Gmail app indicated that sync was turned off. Gmail App->Menu/...

After further exploration I found out what the problem was. It has to do with the permissions declared inside the app. I plugged my phone into PC for Android Studio and checked the logcat looking for the moment where the error appeared. Here it is: 02-05 15:38:50.828 929-970/? W/PackageManager﹕ Package motoboy.yellowlab.com.br.motoboy attempting to ...

As for being hacked, it is possible, but there could be a simple explanation. When using Mobile data, the actual interconnection point with the Internet or the servers handling the ip address assignment may be in a different physical location than you, resulting in your connections showing from a completely different town. Heck, with Verizon, I would ...

The Moto X does not support T-Mobile's WiFi calling. Customer support reps have stated that this is because it is not a carrier branded device, meaning they have not modified the system ROM to add this feature: The Moto X does work on our network but because it is not a T-Mobile branded device we do not support WiFi Calling on it. You'll either need to ...

I had a similar problem, Gmail sync would rarely work, for 3G and for Wifi. My Galaxy S3 runs 4.0.4 stock ICS, background sync is enabled, and so is a mobile data limit. Wifi is set to sleep on display off. What I didn't realize, is in the Settings -> Data usage -> Gmail, I accidentally checked the box "restrict background data". This correlates to "Also, ...

'Shadow' refers to the base model of the phone, cdma_shadow being the Droid X on Verizon, and the regular shadow is likely the Milestone X, a GSM phone released overseas. While the software is mostly the same, there is likely some difference in the hardware, almost certainly the phone's radio, and sounds like the camera as well, according to what you've ...

Download BlueKeyboard JP from the Play Store. This makes it a lot easier to set up a bluetooth keyboard. Here is how to set it up: Install the app. Then go to Settings > Language & Keyboard. Check BlueKeyboard JP and go into its settings, and then into bluetooth settings. Enable Bluetooth and scan for devices. Make sure your bluetooth keyboard is on ...

Mr. Number. Options to block calls and/or texts. Gives you options of sending straight to VM or disconnecting. Very good at recognizing and blocking spam. I also set mine to divert unknown #s to VM. Figured if they wanted to talk bad enough, they wouldnt have their # blocked, lol. I realize this isnt native as you were asking, but much better than any ...

This seems like an issue that has been reported to the android development team. I am not sure if it is specific to the droid x, but even the work item relates to the droid x. If that is the case, I don't know if that is technically an android issue, but a MotoBLUR issue, as the Droid X runs the MotoBLUR version of android. Also, Yes, that is what "Never ...

Yes, the Home button (and possibly the Volume buttons) turn on the screen. Found a fix on: http://www.droidforums.net/forum/drod2169-x/132091-ocd-stop-home-button-waking-screen-save-battery.html Have not tested yet, but it's mentioned in several places. Not sure if it works on an unrooted phone. GINGERBREAD Open /system/usr/keylayout/sholes-keypad.kl ...

I think it was a memory issue. I installed Auto Memory Manager, set it on "mild" and never had the problem again.

The HTMLViewer mentioned does not like spaces in the file name. Rename the file with underscore or throw them out.

Configurations For most devices, you can only modify the volume of the earpiece, bluetooth, media volume or call volume if you are currently using that feature. So, the best is to use your device "menu" button when you are using the bluetooth earpiece and check if said option exists. Alternativly, use the volume up/down from your device while with the ...
