App To Save Home Screen - Wifi Is On Constantly - Samsung Galaxy S2


I have some questions and would be grateful if someone could let me have an answer or two: -

1. I saw a home screen recently which had a shortcut on it to mobile networks/use packet data. How was this done/what program was used to create it etc?

2. When i first got my phone i configured the phone to only switch on wifi when the screen was active. For the life of me i do not know how i did this. Recently this setting has been lost and the wifi is on constantly. When i am at home i would like it to switch off when the screen goes off and comes on when active. The only thing i can find is "wifi sleep policy, which i have configured to "when screen turns off". However after my screen switches off and i turn it back on, i do not see any signs of it having been off - ie; i do not see it switching back on like it used to do, by observing the top notifications bar. This is a drain on my battery - yesterday i noticed that it had been on all the time i was at work - over 10 hours - and the battery reduced by 50%, which is not what it used to do. In wifi settings, even though i am locked on to my home wifi, the phone is constantly scanning away every few seconds - i would like it to stop doing this when connected. Any thoughts etc please?

3. Is there a program out there which can save your home screens/application screens? Yes i know i can restore my phone using cpw/titanium backup but i only want to restore my home screens after diddling about with new themes etc. I usually always prefer the look and feel of my existing ones but am getting fed up with restoring manually and titanium backup doesn't appear to do this - it wants to restore all my previous apps etc. Again some help would be appreciated.

4. In cpw/titanium backup how do i start to freeze a program? I would like to experiment with freezing wifi sharing but not sure how to do this exactly ie; what exactly do i do? - The opening screens are not that user friendly. Fwiw i am on 2. 3. 4 cpw (waiting patiently for an upgrade via kies) and cf-1 kernel (i think).

Samsung Galaxy Ace - Broken Screen - Is There A Home Fix ?

My girlfriend has done this to her brand new (2wk old) ace, is this something i could try and fix through the laptop, or is it going to need a new screen and can i do it? Or does it need to go to a shop? The touchscreen is ok, it looks the lcd screen behind has gone funny. It still makes startup noises as usual, just no display.

Gmail App Crashes Constantly On Galaxy S2

I rooted my galaxy s ii the day i bought it, back in january, and put the coz rom on it. I have had zero problems with the phone, until today. Nothing has been changed on my phone for a few days now, no updated/new apps, etc. I woke up this morning to check my email, and the gmail app has crashed on my main gmail account which i use for the app sync and everything else for the phone. The app will open, freeze, and then start boot-looping very fast. If i press the home button to close the app, i can be doing something else and the gmail app will just pop up and start boot-looping again. I tried rebooting the phone, nothing. I tried anti-virus software. Nothing. I did a cold reboot (aka power off/remove battery). Nothing.

I went to the application settings and cleared the cache and all the saved settings, which allowed me to open the app and select one of the gmail accounts i have saved to my phone. I selected my secondary account, which is only used for certain messages, and loaded that as my account for gmail to use.

The app worked just fine. No boot-looping, nothing. I can check messages and do everything as normal. So then i went and cleared the cache and files again, and re-logged in to my main gmail account. Guess what? It's acting stupid again! What am i supposed to do!? Does it matter how many messages are saved to my gmail inbox or something? I feel completely stupid at this point! I know how to root my phone and do all that but i can't get email to work!?

Way To Find Out When An App In A Folder(on Home Screen)

What i'd like to do is find out the name of the folder an app placed in. A folder on the home screen that is: http://pocketnow.com/how-to/how-to-speed-up-your-android-organize-you.

Is there a way to find out if an app is in a folder(on the home screen)? And if so, what the folder name is? I'm guessing this would not have anything to do with the app's location in the file system. I'm i right?

Customize Home Screen Instead Of Going With Default Home Screen

I am pretty new to android and have a couple of questions:

1. Is it possible to drag and drop a ui widget from one activity to another activity?

2. Does android support multiple non fullscreen applications running active concurently  (say a browser and phone screen next to each other)?

3. Is it possible to customize the home screen instead of going with android default home screen? If so, can we change the layout and widgets in that screen completely?

Can't Set Samsung Galaxy S2 As Wifi Hotspot

I was out of the house with my laptop the other day and thought i'd see if i could set up wireless access to the net through my galaxy s2. I think i turned it on through the "portable wi-fi hotspot settings" option and the laptop found the signal but wouldn't connect for some reason! Is it a setting i have missed or is it something to do with the carrier - i'm on three but not the "all you can eat data" tariff! Can you only do this with certain carriers or should it work on any?

Issue: Samsung Galaxy S I9003 Cannot Connect To Wifi

I used to have a samsung galaxy s i9000, it was replaced when i lost it recently by a samsung galaxy scd i9003 (pretty sure thats the name). Other than being pretty miffed by the dire lack of memory and slightly reduced spec, my main problem is that the phone will not detect to my personal wifi, where the old one could detect and connect with no problems. I do not currently have access to the broadband router page, as i live in rented accommodation and it is controlled by the landlord.

I cannot understand why, when both have the same wireless receiver and wifi set up, one phone can see and connect to the wifi with no problem, and yet the new one cant detect it. Its a bt home hub that has been there for over a year. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Cannot Remove Home Screens On Samsung Galaxy S2

My old galaxy s2 on orange uk was perfect, i could delete unused home screens and i customized it exactly how i wanted it. However today i had to have my phone replaced under warranty as the touch screen became unresponsive in places. The phone they have sent me obv has different software on it because i don't like it and i cant customize it!

My first problem is that i never had on my old phone was i now have 5 home screens and a orange scroll bar across the bottom. I don't use widgets or any of that crap, i use 1 home screen with 4 icons on and everything else is organized in folders in the app screen. However i cant remove them. If i hold them down all i get is a "add to homescren" window with the following listed:

Orange widgets
Orange shortcuts
Android widgets
Android shortcuts
Folders
Wallpapers

If i press the menu button on said screens, i get

All programs
Add to homescreen
Wallpaper
Search
Notifications
Settings

By default it also opens straight to the 3rd (middle) screen of the 5. I have no trash bin to drag them down to like my previous phone. Somebody please help me and tell me how to get rid of them?

Samsung Galaxy S (vibrant) Home Key Issue

It was too good to be true. A perfectly working phone. So i started having the issue where the home key doesn't register alot of times, and apparently its a known issue over the net. Many people are having this same issue where the home key doesn't work properly. Every other key is perfect, but the home key doesn't listen. I wonder if samsung will recall it, or could this be fixed with a firmware update? Or is it hardware? That's why i should have bought from t-mobile so i dont have to deal with wirefly.

Cyanogen 5 Home Screen Resets When Pressing Home

This has been happening since 5. 0. 8 test four and the latest 5. 0. 8. After i use a couple of apps, say i'm in gmail or using the browser, when i press the home button it takes a few seconds because the launcher/home screen seems to restart. It has been happening with stock anderwebs, market anderwebs, and launcher pro beta. I reinstalled the rom various times. I wiped everything.

Fixed permissions. Tried everything i know of and this still happens. Anyone know a fix? Anyone having this problem? I thought i read this was fixed on the changelog, but i guess not. Again, when i press home after using an app the launcher takes a few seconds to reset. Ex: it goes to the stock launcher with out my settings for a few seconds and then loads up my icons and all. It's actually a real pain and adds up to a huge waste of time

Edit: i think this is the bug that he said was fixed, from changelog: "long standing "disappearing icons" launcher bug fixed" this still happens when i press home icons disappear a few mins and then come back with my settings.

Ics - Roaming Indication On Home Network - Samsung Galaxy S2

Recently upgraded my galaxy s2 to ics using a guide at cnet.co.uk. All appears to work fine apart from one thing - sat at home, my signal indicator shows that i am roaming and a warning notification reports "you have lost data connectivity because you left your home network with data roaming turned off". To clarify, i'm at home, a three network customer and never saw the roaming indicator at anytime before in the uk. I also have data roaming turned off for the usual obvious reasons. Has anyone encountered this and does anyone have any ideas how i can remedy this situation?
