Before you flash the recovery, untick the Auto Reboot option in ODIN. Then flash the recovery. After flashing in done, reboot your device directly to recovery mode from download mode by pressing Vol up + Power + Home button together. Now you will see the TWRP recovery is booted in your device. Now you can reboot normally and your TWRP will be installed.

Per this page, WARNING: Do not boot into Samsung's ROM without first applying our Root .zip. Samsung's OTA updates install /system/etc/install-recovery.sh and /system/recovery-from-boot.p, which cause Samsung's ROM to replace the recovery image you had just flashed with the stock recovery. Our Root .zip removes these files, thus preserving your custom ...

Wikipedia is our friend, again. :) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Media_Transfer_Protocol#Drawbacks Quote: MTP allows no parallelism, unlike USB mass storage or NAS. MTP has been built to only allow a single operation at a time (for example, read, write or delete operation), while no other operation can be executed until the previous operation is complete. ...

The 3G G900H and the SM-G900H are the same, but SM-G900H is the proper name for it. Now that we know those two devices are the same, we can compare the SM-G900H with the G900F- SM-G900H Only supports 3G HSPA+ networks, no LTE support, and will work nearly everywhere in the world except some markets in north/south america Uses an Exynos 5 Octa 5422 ...

I was experiencing the same problem, and I found a solution that worked for me in a comment on Heimdall issue #228. The problem for me was that udev was reserving the phone as a modem when I plugged it in. If you run dmesg and see a line that says "This device cannot do calls on its own. It is not a modem.", then this could work for you. As root, create a ...

Connecting your phone via UMS (USB Mass Storage) won't be possible. It's been removed from Android, so the only way would be for you to fork the Android source and program it in again. I assume that's not what you want to do. There were a few reasons for this, but mostly because UMS is prone to crash third-party apps and also files cannot be dual accessed ...

Knox warranty void has been discussed for a long time but I can't find consistent results on what it actually means. Some sources say, that it only covers data security, a warranty that makes sure your data is safe and private, so tripping the Knox warranty void flag doesn't void your hardware warranty. (where I live there is a law that hardware warranty ...

Yes, if you have root access. Tasker does not have the developer options built-in as something it can manage. However, the developer options, like most preferences, are stored in a database behind the scenes. They can be modified via command-line, and Tasker is able to run shell commands. You just need to know what command to run. Unfortunately, the catch ...

Hold down the Task Manager button and it will show the application menu.

Yes indeed you can! It's not a 'stock' or 'Hangouts' feature though, but there are apps that can perform this functionality. SMS notifier on the Google Play store has this option as you will see in the screenshots for it. Off the record a friend said that Google tend to prefer you to Activate something, rather than mark as read! That's why you don't ...

What's even worse is that it's not just a combined view; the text messages are actually inserted into your Inbox, so your private text messages sync back to your corporate email account, so they show up in Outlook on your PC, and they're available for your company's Exchange administrators to snoop on! It's probably the most annoying anti-feature I ...

There is no way to increase the number of characters you can send via SMS. SMS (Short Message Service) is a fixed standard that is currently defined as a way of sending messages up to 1120 bits in length. This means 160 7-bit characters or 140 8-bit characters or 70 16-bit characters. More here http://www.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Short_Message_Service

It looks like there is an issue with Hangouts app that causes notifications for new conversations with a given contact to be disabled by default, with no way to override this setting. On the Conversations tab, these are denoted by a bell with a strike-through: (click for larger image) Once you open such a conversation you will see a message in red saying "...

Type in your dialer *#0808# and choose MTP+ADB and save it.

The vulnerability towelroot used has been fixed within Android 4.4.2. Check your version. Plus, as you can read here, geohot, developer of towelroot, now works for Google, so probably there won't be updates. I wouldn't recommend any other root method: it could invalidate your warranty. See this article.

You'll have to understand, that Bluetooth is based on a master-slave structure, and so are it's drivers and protocol stack. Most of operations you have specified use existing Bluetooth protocols and profiles: hands free => HFP music streaming => A2DP music control => AVRCP tethering => BNEP making calls = TCP contact viewing => PBA The problem is, the ...

If you rooted your S5 it is pretty simple (and you don't have to install third party apps): 1) use a file manager and go into root -> system -> usr -> keylayout and find the file gpio-keys.kl ; 2) Open it with a text editor and find the lines with "WAKE" written in them; 3) Go to the one with "HOME" written in it and just delete this word and all the ...

Use wpa_supplicant's wpa_passphrase tool to create your own "real" psk. Actually, the plain-text psk (double-quoted) must be processed at every startup and config reload to generate the real, 64 hex-digit (256-bit) psk. So, using wpa_passphrase to manually create the fully-processed PSK actually optimizes wpa_supplicant's startup & config reload time. :) ...

I got a solution: Go to root browser Go to /etc/secure_storage/.system.wpa_supplicant then delete this folder (only ".secure.supplicant.conf"), then reboot. Strange number gone Note: It only works for Samsung devices, all saved WiFi hotspots will be lost for the first time.

Some Launchers like Nova Launcher supports HIDE APPS and RENAME APPS To Hide Apps in Nova Launcher: Go To 'Nova Settings.' Than Go to 'Apps And Widget drawer'. Click on 'Hide apps' and Check the apps you want to hide. Rename Apps in Nova: * To rename app you have to long press the app you want to rename and than edit app option.

One solution is to use Tasker. Set up your phone to use a fingerprint as the standard unlock mechanism, with a strong password as the backup unlock (required if the fingerprint fails, or every time the phone reboots). Next, create a Task named Screen Unlocked (or similar). In the Task, make it run the Display->Lock action. Set the Code to whatever pin you ...

With root access, simply rename, move, or delete the file: /system/media/audio/ui/PowerOn.ogg This solution may work for other Samsung Galaxy models, and perhaps other makes as well, provided the sound file can be located.

Maybe this is the answer to your question. I'm not sure but according to this link it can't. http://www.tamatalk.com/IB/topic/190144-a-way-to-get-galaxy-s5-to-send-files-via-ir/

Short answer: you don't need to worry. Provided you pay your bills, your carrier does not care much, if at all, that you root/ flash Roms and such. No extra steps will have to be taken either; its all on the sim, and flashing ignores that. Keep note you have lost your warranty, though!

For Gboard: Just enable longpress for symbols in Gboard settings. Than find textbox and in lower left corner of keyboard switch to symbols, than longpress on some numbers will give you fraction or exponent.

automation is preferred option, since OP is looking for context based actions . Many apps are available. I prefer using MacroDroid, since it is free (upto 5 macros) and easy to learn (app guides you through the settings - make sure from the app settings you activate ignore battery optimisations if using Marshmallow) OP has confirmed in his answer that ...

There's a contradiction in terms: a popup from Google would never speak of viruses on Android, as there are none (i.e. no Android viruses, though there's enough of Android malware). That looks more like malvertizing, especially as it asks you to "install some app". Do not follow that advice, do not install that app. The appearance you describe is a known ...

Following the discussion here, mentioning mdnsd as a bug associated with firefox, it now tends its not firefox alone being attributed to this massive power drain through mdnsd. A more detailed explanation of this "mdnsd bug" has been offered: mdnsd is actually an Android daemon process that provides DNS services, as well as local device discovery ...
