It depends on your PIT partition file. Before you do anything using heimdall, print the partition table of your phone. sudo heimdall print-pit The output of the file is the location assigned to each partition. For example on my Galaxy S3, I have something like this: --- Entry #20 --- Binary Type: 0 (AP) Device Type: 2 (MMC) Identifier: 19 Attributes: 5 (...

Try to do the following: Close the Play store. Go to settings Select the apps option Find the Google Play store, and select it Tap "Storage" Select "clear data" Then, try to download your app again.

As devnul3 says, a power-only cable is a USB cable where the data pins are not connected. The main reason they exist is because they can be made ever so slightly cheaper by virtue of only needing 2 connections instead of 4 (and also because you don't need to worry about preserving the quality of the very high frequency signals on the data lines). This said,...

I also had a boot loop today, after flashing Semaphore's ClockworkMod Recovery according to these instructions, then trying to boot to recovery mode. What helped me out was the hint at the bottom of that page: to use Replicant's recovery.img instead: heimdall flash --KERNEL recovery.img --no-reboot Update: Note that the hint has now been removed with the ...

It's simple. There are hidden magnets in the front part of the flip cover. These magnets tell the device that S-View Flip Cover is attached. The glass window that is on the cover is conductive, through which you can operate only that much part of the screen leaving the rest of the screen non operable to avoid accidental touch. The idea behind is just like ...

On these phones, the behaviour you describe can be caused by a corrupted SD card filesystem. The media scanner runs all the time, trying to read the SD card. This problem immediately suggested itself as a possibility as it would be natural to move the same SD card to your new phone, transferring the problem there. That would explain why it started right ...

Just tested this on my phone and my gmail, and it seems to work. I'm running 4.4 with the stock Contacts app on my phone. On your phone, in the Contacts app: menu button -> import/export contacts Choose export to storage and it will create a .vcf file to /storage/emulated/0/ which is the root folder for storage Transfer this file via email, or usb to a ...

I think that there is another element to this - but I have not determined what it is - There is one magnet in the front of the flip cover lets the device know that the cover is open or shut - but it will not work unless the case back is attached to the phone - and there are some contacts in the back cover of the flip case that connect to the phone - I cannot ...

The Galaxy S7 uses MTP (Media Transfer Protocol) which is not natively supported in Windows XP. You need to install Microsoft's Media Transfer Protocol Porting Kit to enable Windows XP to use MPT.

Sorry to disagree with the other answers, but those assumptions are simply wrong: To be compliant with Battery Charging Spec. or any other comparable charging mechanism, the data lines require certain voltages or a shortcut (e.g. BC with <200 Ohms) to identify the charger type, i.e. the charger provides that signals - hence the data lines are required ...

You could use: 'GravityBox' Xposed module (available separately for Lollipop, Kitkat and Jelly Bean) that has an option for exactly that (Under Power tweaks -> Battery Charge sound tick). Or an even more dedicated module Disable Battery Full Alert module. For information on how to install 'xposed' modules, view a similar stack exchange post.

Worked for me: Setting > Apps > All > Google play services > Uninstall update and clear cache

As "ART" versus "Dalvik" is a setting the user can switch, a factory-reset should restore its previous (default) state – in this case, revert it to "Dalvik". Reportedly, the following steps solved the issue in this case: Complete wipe, including Dalvik Cache and data (can be done from recovery-mode, and is equivalent to a factory-reset) Re-flashing the ROM (...

Have you tried a 3rd-party app like Smart Rotator? Are you tired of switching auto-rotate setting back and forth? This tool can help you auto switching it. You can set auto-rorate/portrait/landscape setting for each app, when you open those apps, it will help you set screen orientation to auto, portrait, landscape automatically.

After waiting a couple of days and not finding any answers, I restarted the device. It booted to a screen saying Firmware upgrade encountered an issue. Please select recovery mode in Kies & try again. I tried using recovery mode in Kies, but Kies gave me an error message saying that the device is not supported. However, I noticed that the text in the ...

Yes, officially they said they won't support android 2.1 and 2.2, but since the last update only devices with Android 4.0 and above are supported. Try installing 2.16.259 over 2.16.225: Download APKs for WhatsApp version 2.16.225 and 2.16.259. Install 225 first, don't open it Reboot the phone Install 259 But soon or later these versions will be dropped as ...

In this post at Android Central, the suggestion is: Open a root explorer, go to /system/media/audio/ui Rename PowerOn.ogg to PowerOn.ogg.disabled, PowerOff.ogg to PowerOff.ogg.disabled This requires root. This seems promising, but in my HTC E9 phone (Android 5) these files don't exist :(

The easiest way to do this is to insert the sim into an iPhone, go to Settings > Phone > My Number. Here you can set your phone number and save it. Now if you insert the sim in an android phone, you will be able to see your number.

You can do this using the native Exchange app on your device. On my Galaxy S5 using Android 6.0, it's in Settings -> Account -> Accounts -> Microsoft Exchange Active Sync -> then I tap on the specific Outlook account I'm trying to sync. Below is a screenshot of what it looks like on that next page. When I had this exact same problem, I found that "Sync ...

Your command is wrong. It's not: mount --bind Try this instead: mount -o bind The complete command is: mount -o bind /path/to/directory1 /path/to/directory2

On recent versions of Android (since 4.3, at least) you have to set a password as your device unlock method. If you have a pin or pattern unlock configured, it seems that there is no way to access VPNs. Dumb, but it is what it is. Just go to settings > security > screen lock, and choose password.

One effective way with Heimdall is to just run sudo heimdall flash --RECOVERY twrp.img Worked for me on an S3 AT&T Then when phone reboots, go into recovery via adb reboot recovery

I just tried this, going from TWRP and LineageOS flashing the Replicant Bootloader. First of all you will have to flash it using the command from the replicant guides: https://redmine.replicant.us/projects/replicant/wiki/RecoveryInstallationWithHeimdall#Flash-the-recovery-image (archive) I won't include the table in that link, this question is not about ...

Usually this happens when the device is set back to default manufacturing date. Reset the date to current date and everything will work fine.

The most obvious explanation is that the file is incomplete: there's only a small fraction of the file there, or only the first section of the file is readable. Given that the symptoms you report in your other question point to SD card failure, that seems the most likely cause for this too. If this is a different SD card, it could be that the card itself ...

It looks like having the screen turn on when SMS messages arrive is a stock feature of the Samsung Galaxy S4 on Verzion (possibly applies to other models and carriers as well). I saw threads here and here discussing the problem. There is no setting to disable only the screen turning on. The workaround that I ended up using is as follows: 1) Disable ...

I've followed the guide in this page and reinstalled a stock version of Android: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1196179 Then I reinstalled CWM Recovery and flashed CyanogenMod.

In theory, your phone should perform considerably faster with CyanogenMod 11, because KitKat was designed with entry/mid-level phones in mind; requiring only 512 MB of RAM to run. (See this page about Project Svelte for more information.) CyanogenMod also adds a whole slew of features like Heads Up Notifications and Privacy Guard on top of the AOSP code, so ...

My brother's S3 Mini had a nice water trip on Espain beach. It turned on, but it had software issues such as apps opening randomly, volume changing itself, and random reboots. When the battery went empty, it didn't turn on. My brother tried his friend's S3 Mini battery, and it worked fine, but all the problems remained. So, he bought a new one. Try ...
