It is possible that you searched for the app using google. Somehow the google result links to the US version of the page, which grays out the install link for non-US people. Remove the "gl=US" at the end of the URL address.

Firstly and most important, the credits: I made this following this great tutorial at XDA-Developers by user metalgearhathaway: http://forum.xda-developers.com/galaxy-s2/development-derivatives/mod-partition-internal-memory-app-t2538947 I used PIT files (I'll explain what they are, don't worry) made from user ElGamal from XDA also, located here (comment ...

If you're getting "storage space runout" on your Samsung S2 phone, just dial *#9900# on the tablet and select option 2 “Delete dumpstate/logcat” It's not necessary to root your android. Restart your phone afterwards.

Signed up to the site specifically to answer this question. I'm also using a Samsung Galaxy S2 with lots of storage but constantly full. I could not install applications or do pretty much anything. I'm using Cyanogenmod, but this applies to all Androids. What I did was using a file explorer with Root Permissions (to see all the files), navigated to the /...

Kudos to @Bruno for a detailed solution and needed files. A much quicker method is listed below, which does not require installing any ROM/Gapps or reboot into the ROM in between steps. You need an external SD card with enough free space to hold all apps+data+photos+etc that are on your internal phone storage. You can skip steps 1-5 if you already have CWM ...

If you've got access to a terminal on your phone (I guess that requires being rooted), then you can also run ip neigh show dev wlan0 to see what's in the ARP tables. That should tell you the MAC addresses and IP addresses of everything connected.

Since Android 4.0, it is possible to "disable" apps without root. However, not all apps can be "disabled": some (pre-installed) system-apps are protected against this. Still, it's always worth a try if you don't want to root your device: Go to Settings→Apps Select the "All" tab Scroll to the apps in question, and open their entry Here you see either a ...

This may not be as easy as you think. The eMMC is connected to the board with a Ball Grid Array (BGA) connection, which is pretty difficult to reconnect once removed. You can see photos of the chip and more discussion on the topic on this XDA post. As for where the chip is, you might be able to find it on some teardowns, but my eyes didn't catch it in ...

A factory reset usually doesn't touch "external storage" (may sound confusing, but that includes the "internal SDcard" as well) – unless it explicitly specifies so (some devices/ROMs have a corresponding checkbox in the system menu, usually Settings → Backup & Reset, where this might be specified to be included). What a factory reset usually does is, ...

You need to clear the logging files. Dial *#9900# and select delete dumpstack

It's a chip soldered to the main board in the phone. You can only remove it by desoldering it from the board in a soldering oven. (This is a precisely temperature-controlled device: a kitchen oven won't do.) Even if you did manage to desolder it safely, the chip itself isn't a lot of use to you. Because it's an internal component, it doesn't fit into a ...

I just solved this issue on my phone, mms only works through 3g or 4g. It doesnt work over wifi so turn your wifi off, turn your mobile data on and it will work! Or at least it did with mine anyway. That's had me stumped for a veeery long time haha I hope ive helped someone with this :-)

There is some hope to recover data which was stored on the “internal SD card”. Samsung Galaxy S2 supports USB connection in the mass storage mode (unlike some other more recent models). This mode provides the required block-level access to the partition which holds your media and other files (but not contacts, SMS and app data). Therefore you can connect ...

In my case, I needed a cross-platform solution since I use Linux. Here's what worked for me: Back everything up. This will wipe everything on the phone, including the internal SD card. Download: A PIT file you want to flash. I used this one, which resizes /system from 512 MB to 1 GB and /data from 2 GB to 6 GB Any compatible recovery. I used this one (...

Yes, it is normal. A resource-intensive app like a game may cause the phone to heat up. The phone should cool down after you stop playing. The battery is unlikely to be the component getting hot (unless it's defective, of course.) According to the Galaxy S2's teardown, the component near/behind the camera that could be the culprit is the CPU. Phones and ...

From the CyanogenMod Wiki: "Status 7" Error I have a stock AT&T Galaxy S2 (i777) which had been updated to the latest version of Android from AT&T. I followed the instructions for installing CM 10.1 but received the following error: assert failed: getprop("ro.product.device") == "i777" || getprop("ro.build.product") == "i777" || getprop("ro....

A bit late I know, but I've just been having a similar problem with a Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini. This is how I got rid of it. I tried other ways, but found that if I turned the phone on and off again, the speech would come alive again. This was the only way I could kill it off for good. Go to Settings -> Accessibility -> Text to Speech and there will be ...

I might be late, or maybe not. I confirmed (here) this issue being adressed into a firmware where the asigned screen size was bigger than it was supposed to be. In my case, a 7" tablet flashed with a 10" screen size tablet, downloaded straight from the tablet's company support page, for my specific tablet. The guy from the link applied a solution by himself,...

It's possible that the USB cable is designed for charging only (i.e. not a data cable), or is of poor quality. Off-topic: Although not a USB cable, I have encountered OTG cables that could not detect a USB drive. In this case, it was a poor (or defective) OTG cable; other cables were able to detect the USB drive. Related posts (external): All micro usb ...

Unless Samsung are complete muppets, even they don't know your password: all they know is a special hashed form of the password, which is an irreversible function a bit like encrypting it. When you type in your password, they hash what you type in in the same way, and then compare the two hashed passwords. This way, they can check your password without ...

I had the same problem with stock Nexus 7 2012 GSM. The relevant documentation for this is https://support.google.com/nexus/answer/4596836?hl=en the Recovery mode section https://developers.google.com/android/nexus/images section Flashing instruction (it helps you get familiar with adb and fastboot) https://developer.android.com/tools/help/adb.html ADB ...

I'm going to presume this was a side-loaded app with a potential malware payload, since you mention you cannot find it on Google Play Store. First step is to see if the application can be prevented from uninstall because it has set itself up as a Device Administrator, sort of a protected app. See Settings>Security>Device Administrators, and deactivate both ...

Yes - you can install Cyanogenmod for the i9100 S2. Get the CyanogenMod (nightly if you feel adventurous or stick with the stable since you're new at this) from http://download.cyanogenmod.org/?device=i9100 Also, you'll need to flash the appropriate gApps package from http://goo.im/gapps I highly recommend you read through the major posts of this thread ...

Looks like a damaged LCD that's slowly "leaking out." Overheating could definitely be the culprit, as could the drop. Although damage from the drop is usually accompanied with a visible crack. Most likely it was the combination of the two. The fact that the phone booted up and is (sort-of) functional leads me to believe that replacing the LCD assembly ...

In SD card android->data folder copy the folder name of the game and paste it in the new device

Note: Keep in mind, Samsung Galaxy S2 has infamous Superbrick bug. Every flash can result in permanent brick (only board changing or maybe JTAG unit can recover device). You can learn more about it here. Note2 : Last resort to enter Download mode is to get USB JIG. There is plenty of this on Internet and it's very cheap. Also there is tutorials on Internet ...

some basic general troubleshooting steps that you can try to get a touchscreen working again. Step 1 More RAM consumption Turn the device off, wait a few seconds, and then turn it back on again. This process will clear out any software errors that are causing the touchscreen to malfunction. If the touchscreen still doesn't work, remove the device's ...

As of October 2014: See this, it offers a direct way to do just what we're looking for. Nutshell: Connect phone to computer Swipe down from top of phone to get to settings (Samsung Note 3) tap "Connected as..." and select "Camera (PTP)" to access photo folders. (Alternatively, tap "Media Device (MTP)" to access all folders) FINALLY!

Rotating around each axis clockwise then counterclockwise got the compass working on my Samsung Galaxy Victory. This particular phone's compass works correctly with the phone flat or upright.

I found this: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=infinitegra.trial.usbcamera This is an Android application to display and record the video from an USB camera which is connected to a smart phone or a tablet device.
