If you're rooted, install Android Terminal Emulator from Play Store and open a root shell. Also make sure you use latest (>2.00) SuperSU to handle SELinux. Then type: su 0 setenforce 0 and see what happens. Check with id. If that doesn't work, also try with: su system setenforce 0. In AOS >4.3, it's not enough to just be "root" (uid=0), you also have to use ...

I don't know what it is, but I also just had it pop up an hour ago. As you said, persistent between apps and screens, but goes away on landscape orientation. I am on a Moto X Dev running Eclipse 4.4.2.

Visit a different site (and avoid this one in the future). That's a fake warning wanting to trick you into some download. Definitely do NOT hit that button labeled "Remove virus now" – if you do that, you'll have your device infected with some malware for sure. Don't get irritated by the Google logo, this is not a message from Google (they have other ways ...

Without root it is up to the developer of the particular application, and chances are there aren't enough Note 3s out there to justify it. There is an S-Pen SDK from Samsung There are lists (but these will often be out of date in no time) like this best S-Pen apps out there. With root access there is a way to open any app in Pen Window Mode First, make ...

I had problems on my Samsung Note 2. Photos were being taken where I had to go into gallery and rotate right or left for image too be correct. Just messed around with settings and fixed it by re-calibrating horizontal and vertical (I think). Hope this works for some of you.

Answering my own question, this seems to just be my misunderstanding of how Google Now works. I was typing the search and expecting a voice response. But apparently it only responds with a voice if you ask with a voice. If I use voice search, then a voice does indeed reply. Leaving this question/answer here in case anyone else has the same ...

USB devices are designed to use a wide variety of voltages ranging from 500mA to 1500mA and have been standardized for quite some time. You can generally plug any USB device into any USB cable and into any USB port, and nothing will blow up. Using a more powerful charger should speed up battery charging, while using a less powerful one will just charge ...

AFAIK they cannot be removed without voiding your device's warranty, as they are integrated into TouchWiz and are therefore part of the system. If you really need to get those buttons out of your notification panel, then you would either have to recompile SystemUI.apk to remove the section where the buttons are located, or use a custom ROM that's not ...

I've never been bothered by an advertisement since ages because of my ruthless choice of using a full-fledged ad blocker like AdAway. You may try it if the device is rooted, or try adblock-plus for non-rooted devices. Let's come to the issue. If that advertisement is indeed a notification, then you can tap and hold that notification → App info, and ...

I found good info on the hardware specs here: http://www.phonearena.com/phones/Samsung-Galaxy-Note-3_id7984 I'd compare that to any stats verizon releases. Word on the street is it will be both CDMA and GSM, so I wouldn't be surprised if there are no differences. My reading: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2469047

There's an important distinction to be made: Android in its stock form, and Samsung's version of Android, with the Touchwiz framework.

There is keyboard app in the Google Play Store called Swype which has many handy shortcuts - such as copy, paste, select all, etc. The shortcuts involve swiping certain keys. When I use Swype I find these shortcuts to be incredibly efficient and helpful.

Doublecheck that your phone can connect to another computer, since my list assumes that the problem is on the pc, and not any settings on the phone. Use a short usb cable without extenders, and use the best usb ...

My N9005 was unable to connect via ADB on Windows 8. etc, and I fixed it by entering the *#0808# dialer code on the caller screen to change the USB connection mode. You will see the mode about ADB at the bottom. I tried it and it worked for me, but only for the ADB connection. I did not try other options. Look for MTP options, and also find the USB driver ...

It turns out that the issue was that Location Reporting was enabled. Disabling this misfeature increased my battery life almost three-fold, stopped the notification popups (which I've since learned are called toasts), and now the spooks will have only a slightly harder time to find out where I've been.

The certificate is stored in Credential Storage, which requires a pin/password to be set for use in encrypting/decrypting the certificate. The nature of the problem is documented here on code.google.com and you can star the issue, so hopefully Google will address it in future.

Yes: Kies - this will install USB drivers CF-Auto-...

This can be caused by numerous things. Do you have any background sync going on? e.g. Google sync, few email account and so on? Don't sync every 5 min, try to increase the sync interval to 30 min e.g. Do you have a bad signal reception most of the times? It can help to change to 2G network if thats the case. Some other tips: Try apps like "Greenify". ...
