adbcontrol can do this. It opens a window containing the phone screen on your computer, so you can use it when the phone screen is broken, and you can click and type in the window to control the phone. To install adbcontrol do: wget http://marian.schedenig.name/wp-content/uploads/adbcontrol.zip unzip adbcontrol.zip Now edit config.properties and change: ...

To fix this issue, set TitaniumBackup to use the legacy path. The easiest way to do this is to go into TitaniumBackup, press "Menu" and then "Preferences". "Backup folder location" a bit down and click it. Click "DETECT!" and TitaniumBackup will ask you where to scan for backup locations. It's very important that you here choose to scan your whole device and ...

Technically yes, but you need a Lightning to micro USB adapter, like this one.

Looks like these days the best solution for controlling an Android phone from a PC is scrcpy. It is being actively maintained, has very high performance (framerate, latency), is available cross-platform. It also does not require root on the phone.

Funny thing is: Blowing into the phones USB solved the problem for me. Maybe you try that =D

One word: Vysor Using the vysor to control my Xperia Z2. See the state of my phone, but Vysor came to the rescue. *if phone reboots and won't connect after plugging in, try removing the micro sd card. Mine wouldn't work at all until I did so - random phone smasher

I found this to be the easiest way: adb shell pm list packages find my apps package "my.package.name" adb shell pm path my.package.name adb pull /data/app/my.package.name Thanks for your answers though!

No, they don't behave differently if you don't use the original charger. I have a Samsung phone that has never even seen its original charger, along with some Nexus devices in similar conditions, and they don't suffer from slowdown or anything like this. More likely, your phone is running low on internal storage, or you've recently installed an app that ...

To use "root powers", an app needs to explicitly request those from the system. To my knowledge, Astro File Manager does not include this feature, but e.g. ES File Explorer does. For most of the newer/updated apps, you can tell that by their permissions: if those include android.permission.ACCESS_SUPERUSER, they request "root powers". Alas: as this ...

Did you try clearing the app-data of play store? If not, try clearing the app-data, and/or any updates installed by play store, and allow it to install a Play Store update again (it will do this automatically), and then try using Google Play Store.

You could try to use AndroidScreenCast for you purposes - it's maintainable version of original androidscreencast. It requires only Java and ADB, no phone client, so just run it and use it. I've just tried it with Nexus 4, Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean emulator. And, actually, I'm currently the maintainer of the project, so if you got any questions or issues - ...

Using another App You could try installing an app from the Play Store to backup the apk file. Some examples (which don't require root) are Helium and App Backup & Restore (There are many others though). Using ADB It is also possible to use adb to retrieve the apk file using the adb pull command (you know the full package name of the app, not just the ...

You have to wait until Samsung lets out their update with their added components, or flash a custom ROM onto it. I don't know how to do that, so I won't provide a recommendation. Depending on what network you're on, it may be a little while yet. An article about that.

It looks like it's Google's Pinyin IME. The icon has since changed to use squares instead of circles, but you can still see that it is generally the same, and you can find examples of the old round icon on the Internet still. It's still on the page for Google's Windows variant, in fact: Google must evidently ship this in their vanilla Android builds for ...

You don't have to worry if your internal storage gets wiped. There is another way called "ADB Sideload" which allows you to push and install a zip from your computer using CMD (Windows) or Terminal (Linux) Steps to use ADB Sideload Have a recovery installed on your device that supports ADB sideload like TWRP 2.3 or higher. The stock recovery on ...

Go to Settings > Storage > overflow menu (three vertical dots) > USB computer connection. You can choose MTP. From now on, there will be a notification when you plug the USB device.

as previously stated: Blow hard into the phone's port to clear out the dust & other garbage If you're connecting it to the front of the computer make sure nothing else is plugged in Connect it to the back of the computer., much better & STRONGER connection than the front If you're connecting to laptop, Again., first blow into the phone's port, do ...

This is an old question, but it's the first Google result for "galaxy nexus dock middle pogo" and I felt it deserved a complete answer for those who might look into it. I've done a lot of dev work for the Galaxy Nexus, especially with the kernel. The kernel has code for the pogo pins and is very much in charge of them: https://android.googlesource.com/...

My ZTE Blade s6 has a setup procedure where the phone is turned on with no sim in then in step three it says insert sim card and the phone is on at this time, it then walks you through the rest of the setup, so I think phones with a removable sim tray and fixed battery are OK to do this.

I got it fixed. Here are the steps I took: Use the exploit here entitled "Phone: Use a hole to disable your lock". For me, it didn't work exactly as documented, though. I had to mash the password keys for a long time (calling my phone was unnecessary), then swipe up Google Now, mash the password a few more times, and hit Enter. With that, Google Now pops up ...

Yes, it works. You need to root and install the StickMount app. Source.

As far as I know, your device is not that hard bricked, that you can't boot into the bootloader (fastboot mode). so at every time you should be able to install a custom recovery via fastboot flash recovery recovery.img. if you are in recovery mode with a working recovery, you can do a factory reset (reflash the system, root,... partitions from a protected ...

I found a fix that worked for me. Remove the SD card, then whilst it's out, choose to clear the SD card contents,(mine allowed this). Replace the SD card and all fine, quick n easy.

The process error you are getting is android.process.media The clue is in the media part. You should go to Settings > Applications > Manage Applications > Then make sure you look under the ALL tab. It is MEDIA what you are looking for. Clear the data and cache for this one. Then Force-stop it and restart your device. When it restarts, it should restart ...

I had the same problem and I did the following: on the mobile devices Settings/Apps/Calendar. Clear Cache and Data. Relaunch Calendar and now when I tap Yes/Maybe/Now Gmail sends the reply automatically, without redirecting me to the mobile browser. Hope this helps.

On current versions of Android (I'm not sure when this was added, but this is available in Android KitKat), you can go to Location Settings and it will show a list of apps under Recent Location Requests. You can then kill those off one by one until the GPS notification goes away. Sadly, you can't kill them directly from Location Settings. You'll have to ...

I think the easiest way is to use GNex Toolkit: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1392310

Found a solution, follow the link and download version "4.4.811H.526848". Install the old version and pin the last added playlist, then use the play store to update to the latest version. Your last added playlist will now be pinned, when you update there is no still no pin icon but it is pinned.

Officially: This is not possible, except for certain (older?) Archos tablets. Inofficially: There's the Autopatcher project . It includes patches to enable 3G modems on wifi-only tablets (it may be possible to use those on phones too, but YMMV). Autopatcher supports these Android firmware flavours: some 3rd party firmwares (CyanogenMod, AOKP, ...

From mybookofknowledge: Go to your Dial Pad and select the Settings options. Under the other call settings, you can see the option Dial pad autocomplete. Enable this option and now you can see suggestions when you dial a phone number. NOTE: Make sure you are using the stock dialer.
