When adb shows devices as ???????????? it's usually a permission problem and the usb device file. Your udev rules doesn't seem right. Make sure that you have udev configured to something like this: SUBSYSTEM=="usb", SYSFS{idVendor}=="04e8", MODE="0666" Where 04e8 is Samsung's USB Vendor ID. Under Linux there is also an adb_usb.ini from the SDK where you ...

For Tab S and Tab A Should work with 8.4 or 10.5 Hold the Power button, Volume Down button, and Menu key for 10 seconds. You will enter download mode, simply press the volume down button to restart tablet. After reboot, you tablet should perform as normal

I'm not 100% sure. But IIRC, the problem with normal USB storage is Android has to partition your phone for internal storage and USB storage. Your computer can then umount the USB storage from phone and mount it in your computer. So in many phones without MTP, even though the internal storage had capacity like 16GB, only 1 or 2 GB was available for app ...

For me, it was all about killing and rebuilding a bigger cache. I want it registered on SE so other people having the same problem can find an answer googling for it. The problem seems to be with the size of the partition the cache is in. It is mounted on a 20-30MB partition in the phone internal SD card. The fix that worked to me was described in this ...

No. Apple's older iOS lineup and Samsung's Android tablets have a similar looking but different connector. You can't interchange them. And besides this: Apple's new ligthning plug clearly only works with iOS devices (iPhone 5 and iPad 4/mini and better). The available lightning-adapters also only work with iOS devices.

Unless Amazon releases their Kindle Fire source code, there won't be a way to mod a different Android tablet to be a faux Fire. I seriously doubt that will happen That's not to say that someone won't be able to put together some combination of mods and apps that might approximate some of the Fire's functionality, but that's a pretty daunting task, if Amazon'...

Your Galaxy tab 8.9 connectivity specifications don't include wired Ethernet: ╔════════════════════════╦══════════════════════╗ ║ Connectivity ║ ║ ╠════════════════════════╬══════════════════════╣ ║ WiFi ║ WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n ║ ║ USB ║ USB 2.0 H/S ║ ║ Bluetooth ║ ...

No force shutdown for galaxy tab, but you can use this trick. Plug the charger into your galaxy tab. Hold down power button for 10 seconds, and wait to reboot. After that, the screen will be change with charging battery. Plug off your tab, and it will be shutdown.

There is no "force shutdown" as far as I know, but you can force a reboot by holding down the power button for about 15 seconds.

The app Font Installer will allow you to install a font and set it as the system font. As with anything that modifies a system file, you will need to be rooted to do this.

I use the Power Control Widget. Allows you to toggle Data, wifi and various other settings from your home screen.

From a GNU/Linux-based OS, you can use Heimdall, an open-source alternative to Odin which is proported to match Odin feature-for-feature while also being more reliable. Otherwise, you can follow any of the many tutorials for installing a new Android ROM. I'll provide a bit more information to help you start your journey: If you want a custom ROM like ...

Built for the Android version, plus the device architecture (arm/arm64/x86). See the Xposed Framework download page (e.g. Android 8.1 (SDK27) here). The reason behind this is that part of Xposed Framework is a modified app_process binary (Zygote), which is different for each arch.

Generally speaking, rooting is completely unrelated to unlocking. CDMA unlocking is also more difficult than SIM unlocking a GSM phone, and CDMA phones need to be activated on the network, unlike sticking a SIM in an unlocked GSM phone and doing whatever you want. You'll need help from both carriers (Verizon to unlock, your carrier to activate) in order to ...

Are you trying to access the Market from a home screen shortcut or from the app drawer? Updates can sometimes break shortcuts so try to open it from the app drawer. Another thing you can try is to reset market data from Settings -> Applications -> Manage applications -> All -> Market -> Clear data and Clear cache.

In Android it's not necessary to stop and close apps manually. Android manages the state of applications in the background, when an app is not actively performing a task. If the device needs memory for a new application, Android closes the least active app still in the background to make room for it. As a result if you open an application that was still in ...

I had an issue with something similar a few years back - and I believe this thread helped (see Lynx's post about halfway down). (I know it's a bit old - but I remember it being very helpful). I believe the certificate also needs to be very generically titled "certificate.p12" or something like that (if I recall correctly). Make sure it's in the root of ...

I am also facing the same problem, and here is what I discovered until now. Some tablets do allow an ethernet port (they even have the port itself). Mostly you will have to buy an ethernet adpter (RJ45) to use it through the USB port, and an mini (or micro) USB adapter to connect to the tablet. Be careful to buy the RJ45 adapter that fits to the tablet's ...

Android 4.0+ officially supports bluetooth tethering in both directions (and allows bridging to whatever the internet connection is (wifi/usb/3G)). You need: 1x device as tether host running Android 4.0+ that has wifi/3g/usb internet 1x client device running Android 4.0+ both devices are bluetooth paired enabled 'bluetooth tethering' setting on the host ...

This solution is for those who will face the same problem: To fix same problem on my S4 mini I've tried: Numerous PCs and USB cables USB debugging (& Stay awake & Unknown sources) checked and unchecked Unmounted & remounted SD card Asking the PC to look for new hardware Removed and re-installed PC drivers Dial *#7284# or *#0808# and set MTP+ADB ...

Instead of widget use apps like data switch. Unlike widget this app doesn't consume resource when idle. There are tons of other apps/widget if you don't like this one or this one doesn't work for you. For eg: https://market.android.com/details?id=com.aispl.mdsswitch https://market.android.com/details?id=ru.chernish2 https://market.android.com/details?id=...

I dabbled with an Android port of libnfs, but eventually got stuck. Maybe someone else will have more luck, or maybe I'll revisit the project sometime. A native Android port of libnfs seems like the best way to go as long as NFS isn't built into stock kernels.

Like it was pointed out, the Galaxy Tab wasn't designed in a way for it's battery to be easily removed. Here's a video on removing the case and exploring what's inside. Hope this helps. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=urGUKerJOhg

You cannot install CWM recovery onto the Samsung Galaxy Tab P1000 via ROM Manager app. You will need to flash it via Odin or Heimdal utilities. XDA-Developers forums are a good start. I suggest reading up on the Galaxy Tab Android Development section. This thread seems to have good instructions for flashing ClockWorkMod v3 along with a Euro-specific ...

You can see a list of all apps in Settings -> Apps (or Applications) and then select the All tab to see factory-installed apps in addition to downloaded apps.

Ok I answer myself: after installing samsung drivers you need to find oem??.inf file that contains ssudserd.inf comment out all references to wdf stuff version 1.7 and decomment the ones referring 1.9

It seems that you're connecting the tab in Media Player (MTP) mode. Try switching it to Camera mode, it usually gives better results. If I remember correctly, this option can be found in Settings -> Storage -> Menu button (top right) -> USB computer connection.

The device may have to be unlocked first. Rooting will not Unlock the device. You will also need information from the network you want to run the device on. Like if the device is supported on their network, if they are able to active the device (they will be able to tell you if they support it if you give them the ESN/MEID) and what their mobile carrier code ...

Alright guys, I had the same problem as you are experiencing. When I plugged my tablet to the wall charger it just showed a lightning icon crossed with a red cross, it wrote mtp connected and did not charge. I have read some forums about this problem there are only a few of them. I have decided to reset to the factory settings, since I was desperate at this ...
