The workaround was to set the desktop backup password under Developer settings. It seems there is a bug in backup process. If you didn't set a desktop backup password under the developer options settings the above problems occur and your backup will eventually be incomplete(empty backup file). However, I couldn't find an official source for this bug report ...
This thread on XDA has a post
....what is the aim of the "fastboot erase modemst" command?
modemst1 and modemst2 are storage partitions for Radio Firmware .... - and it's obviously a recommended practice to wipe these partitions when flashing a newer Radio Firmware
This XDA thread is all about fastboot commands
fastboot erase system
Follow guide below:
This will void your warranty and wipe your device so make a backup.
CyanogenMod 12 is still a nightly so there are bugs.
Make sure your computer has working fastboot and adb.
Follow these steps:
Step 1: Unlock Bootloader
Enable USB debugging on the device.
Connect the device to the computer through USB.
From a terminal on a computer, ...
Download the latest SuperSU zip file and save it to your device at the root of the internal storage.
Download and install the Android SDK Tools and the latest Motorola drivers.
Enable Developer Options on your device by going to Settings → About and then tapping the build number 7 times. Then go into Developer Options (again under Settings) and enable ...
don't worry. Do just what I say:
Turn off you Motorola Moto G 2nd Gen(I mean moto G2).
Afterwards press and hold the Volume Up and Volume Down for about 2-3 seconds.
While still holding these keys press the Power button for a short while and release all buttons.
Then select option Recovery by using to navigate Volume Down, and to confirm Volume Up.
I don't think a factory reset would revert your device back to 4.4, I'm pretty sure it would still be on 6.0. A factory reset would wipe all user data on your device without touching the OS.
If you some want to wipe all installed apps (bar system apps) and user data then a factory reset would do. If you want to wipe the OS too then you would need to find a ...
Press and hold the power button for 10-20 secs and your phone will force reboot, in most cases anyway. If your phone still doesn't reboot, then you'll have to remove the battery and if its not removable you'll have to wait for the battery to run empty.
I'm not familiar with the G2 specifically, but in general, no, rooting a device on its own should not wipe data. Rooting your phone is the process of getting the su binary installed and available to access root privileges. That said, @SarpSTA is right in stating that a factory reset shouldn't unroot your phone. The su binary is placed in the system partition,...
If I'm not wrong, it's because you have received an update of Lollipop 5.0.2.
To resolve this issue, go to Settings and change the priority of the "Phone" app to high priority, then go to Notification, and change way of notifying to "Interrupt for anything"
Weirdly I inserted another sim into the 2nd slot(it has no service btw), and voila The excalamtion(!) mark is gone from the mobile network icon and Mobile data is back up. I just hope XDA doo take a look at this... And yes I had tried soft reset , factory reset, re inserting the sim and re registering , APN manual config etc etc..
Both the Facebook and Facebook Messenger apps are notorious for excessive battery use. Seriously, social media is nowhere near important enough to warrant killing your phone battery. One way to help is to make sure that location reporting is turned off for both apps. You should actually go through all of the settings for both apps and disable every single ...
Because that way (superboot) is old and doesn't work on the current software releases, TBH I am surprised it still boots at all after that, probably because you just just manually booted it and didn't flash it.
I will assume this is the Titan (non-LTE) version. The proper way to do this if you are unlocked is simple... Download the latest TWRP for your ...
The format follows the pattern used in DateFormat class from Java/Android. It's:
IMG: constant prefix for Images
hours (2-digit in 24-hour format, from 1-24)
For fun, I wrote a very simple script to find out which ringtone is assigned to a particular contact. Sadly, the script needs root access and Busybox and its applets installed and available under PATH variable. Once you meet the above requisites, save the following preformatted text into a file named find_tone.sh under /sdcard.
I was having this issue today, apparently something wrong happens with Google Play Services last update.
Go to Settings -> Apps -> All -> Google Play Services and click on uninstall updates. Some google apps will crash but after that everything will be normal again.
Hope it help, at least it works on my MotoX
Here are my opinions.
Firstly there is an application called "WatchDog Task Manager". You can install this application (or use the free version) and configure it so it kills processes exceeding certain thresholds. This can be set for the parameter of CPU or battery usage. This is primarily for CPU.
Another application you could configure is "SnapDragon ...
My Motorola Moto G 2nd Gen fell in water.
Unfortunately, as with most unprotected electronic devices, water does unspeakable things to cell phones. It's for this reason that diagnosing challenges with water-logged phones is time consuming and unreliable.
Water can short circuit the device in the short run, water also leaves behind moisture. This moisture ...
So it seems the problem was with the settings of the device. Having a Screen Lock (even if SmartLock is enabled, and you are in a "safe location") disconnects ADB on device idle. Only way around it for me was to disable the device screen lock.
You can go to SuperSu app or any other Superuser app you are using, and go to Settings and you will see a Full unroot option, press that and restart the phone when prompted. This should unroot the phone. But the boot loader will stay unlocked if you have unlocked it.
You can do one of two things:
Hold your finger on the Spam-chat, and press the crossed-out speaker button at the top. It does not block it, but it mutes it.
Go onto the Spam-chat, tap the menu icon (top right), tap more, then tap block.
Then to report it, you can either contact WhatsApp, or just hope for the best. They removed report spam because, ...
Finally, after doing all the necessary backups using different tools like adb, Helium(Carbon), Google, Super Backup, I did a factory reset(Soft Reset through the option under Settings > Backup & Restore > Factory Reset) and the speaker phone issue is solved.
Okay, I should searched a bit more before posting this question. But in my defence the answer was in second page of Google search results.
From this link I gather that:
Facebook contacts will no longer sync with the Android Contacts app
[on Android OS 4.1 and later].
The Android Contact list is built to provide data portability, and
Your phone may not have the correct APN settings in it in order to connect and use the data properly. Check and add these settings if necessary.
Access the Settings menu.
Locate and select Wireless & Networks or More Networks.
Select Mobile Networks.
Select Access Point Names.
Locate and select the option to add a new APN. This is usually accessed by a +...
I suggest you to perform clear cache on your device. This steps will remove any temporary files that may be causing the problem, but will not delete your files or settings.
With the phone powered off, press and hold the Volume Down + Power button at the same time and release after two sec.
Press the Volume Down button twice to highlight "Recovery mode"
My issue has been solved, I have changed my sim slot it is working now.
Previously I was using slot-2 for my sim so it was not connected to the internet, now I changed it to slot-1 the exclamatory mark has disappeared and the internet is working now.
