Samsung apps do not update over wifi. A popup comes "network unavailable". They used to earlier, however once i started using my mobile data connection, they seem to only update over the mobile connection and do not want to update over wifi ?!

Phone Closes All Apps That Were Open, When Screen Goes To Sleep - Samsung Galaxy Nexus

I just noticed that when the screen goes to sleep the phone closes all apps that were open. For example, i was playing angry birds and stopped to talk to someone. After 30 seconds or whatever the screen went to sleep and when i woke it i was back at my home screen. When i went back to the app it had to start from scratch. It does this all of the time, now that i am paying attention. Is this normal? I assume a battery saving thing?

What Apps Do I Install On My New Samsung Galaxy Nexus ?

I already got help here with my first post, so here goes number 2. I ordered a new unlocked gangland nexus. It is replacing my iphone 4. I found out i had to swap out the sim card and i should be up and running. Ok, what do i do next? This is my first droid phone. I have read how to export my contacts to gmail and that will transfer them over to my new phone. I don't want my calender entries, i hope i can do that directly form outlook.

So what do i install? I know the standards apps, but what else should i do to my phone. Root it? I already know that i have to make sure that it has something with a bunch of letters in it to make sure i get updates. Is there a tutorial or a great post that someone can steer me too.

Removing System Notifications Audio Noise That Annoy Me - Samsung Epic 4g

I finally took the plunge and rooted my epic. It is great now that i can delete all of the useless scheisse on the phone. Now what i would like to do it remove a couple of the system notifications that annoy me. The first one is the noise it makes whenever you move in and out of service. I am guessing the audio file for it is in /system/media/audio but after that i am not sure which file it is. Does anybody know what it is? And can i just delete the audio file or do i need to replace it with a blank audio file?

The second one is the battery full unplug charger bs. Is this one possible to remove? I thought i found once that if you are rooted you can but i cannot find anything on it at right now. Thanks for any help.

How Do I Restore Stock Apps On Samsung Galaxy Ace?

I've got gt-s5830 phone running 2. 3. 3. So far the phone is working perfect. I was messing around the other and deleted some stock apps by error. I used ti backup for this. I would like to restore a couple of them back, so i used the restore function in ti backup, but for some reason it did not work. Did not give any errors, just rebooted without the app being restored.

Anyway, i believe i have 2 options.

1). Flash 2. 3. 3 which i found - droidangel. Blogspot.com/2011/05/samsung-galaxy-ace-s5830-original-stock.html

2) upgrade to 2. 3. 5 which is also located at the above page. But i am not sure what 2. 3. 5 would be best to use. I'm in the uk, using a vf contract with a unlocked phone.

I have no issues on flashing, but i don't want to flash using the wrong rom and messing it all up.

Crack Password Without Uninstalling App

I have installed color note v1. 6. 6 some time ago to test it out on my htc magic. Works sweet, but i used the password function to see if it's any good. I actually forgot the password now i cannot open the note i created and if i want to password protect another note i need to type in the first password i created.

Does anyone know how to crack the password without uninstalling the app? I connected my phone to my netbook via usb and had a look around, but could not really see anything useful in the form of a file to edit.

Where To Find Standard Cell Phone Ringing Tone ?

All these default android ringers are too singy-songy or musical. I miss the ringers my old flip phones had that, you know, sounded like a phone ringing. Anyone know where i can find, say, a samsung or sanyo ringer pack? Or a bunch of standard cell phone ringers? I've searched the android market and several apps therein and can't find what i'm looking for.

Non Market Apps Install Problem On Samsung Galaxy Nexus

I am new galaxy nexus user though i am not new to the android os as i using an acer e130 android 2. 1. Now, my dad bought this unit in saudi arabia, and i have received it hours ago here in the philippines. Immediately after i got the unit, i downloaded some non-market apps and tried to transfer these to my unit via usb. At first, a message popped out in the screen, didn't mind it and then clicked 'transfer anyway'. Transfer success. I then disconnected the usb from the unit and opened settings > storage > misc. I tried clicking the files but nothing happens. I had also clicked the 'allow non-market apps to be installed', but still can't install it!

Did anyone experience this?

My galaxy nexus is an android 4. 0. 2.

Installing Apps, Games Files Into External Sd Card On Samsung Galaxy S2

I have a samsung galaxy s2 i9100g, along with sony xperia neo and htc desire z. After searching extensively throughout the internet and androidforums.com, i needed to post this thread.

On my xperia neo, which has no "internal storage" unlike the sgs2, apps/games can install completely on its "external sd storage". The same is applied to the desire z.

On the sgs2 however, the app/game is present on the "internal sd storage". (11gb out of 16gb). It only move 1% in reality to the "external sd" that too into the secandroid folder.

What i want to ask is that apps such as "sygic", "gta 3", "asphalt", "nova" etc have considerable size of files and while the sgs2 has 11gb available they install into the "internal sd" but in xperia neo, which has about 200mb of "internal phone memory" and no "internal sd storage", these apps/games install their bulk files into the "external sd storage" which is shown as "sd storage".

Please help me and tell me how i can makes these apps/games install their files into the "external sd card". Since "asphalt 6" is about 900mb and on sgs2 it is on the 11gb "internal sd" while on the xperia it is on the "external sd" which is mounted as the "sd card". I am waiting for your helpful replies and advises.

Standard Droid Api For Encoding Wav To A Mp3 On Phone Device

I'm simplified my question and offered a bounty:
What options are there for compressing raw pcm audio data to a mp3 on a android device.

My original post:
I'm creating a synthesiser on my android phone, and i've been generating pcm data to send to the speakers. Now i'm wondering if i can encode this pcm data as a mp3 to save to the sdcard. The mediarecorder object can encode audio coming from the microphone into various formats, but doesn't allow the encoding from programmatically generated audio data.

So my question is, is there a standard android api for encoding audio? If not, what pure java or ndk based solutions are there? And can you recommend any of them?

Failing this i'll just have to save my generated audio as a wav file, which i can easily do.

Cannot Install, Update Apps Or Clear Cache Data - Samsung Galaxy Nexus

Can't install, uninstall or update any apps either through google play on phone or through internet. When trying on my phone, the screen gets stuck at the blue progress line ("installing", "uninstalling", etc. ) And never completes. Back button doesn't leave the screen, but the home button and recent apps button will get me out, and i can go back to the settings>apps screen and try again.

Can't clear cache or data for any apps from the settings>apps. All apps say "computing. " For storage and cache info and never change. In settings>apps>running a number of games (small street, contract killer, stardom, e. Warriors, etc. ) Auto-start and keep coming back after i force close or reboot.

Here's what i've done so far to try to fix it. Reboot, shut down, battery pull. Force close every suspicious app. Certain apps keep coming back. Tried to clear cache of google play store app, but it doesn't seem to clear. Also, clear data, uninstall update never completed. Read more at the forum.

Can't Wakeup Phone Using Bluetooth - Samsung Galaxy S2

I have paired the phone with my bluetooth successfully and had used it a few times. The problem is when the phone is sleeping (i.e. Screen locked), i tried pressing the button on my bluetooth but it won't wake up the phone. I have to first unlock the screen and then place calls. This is very inconvenient when i was driving, and defeat the purpose of using the bluetooth. I have been using the iphone 4 before and it does not have this problem. When i press the button on the bluetooth, it wakes the phone up and activate voice command immediately, even when the screen is locked.

I have searched everywhere in the setting and can't find anything that allows me to do this. Your help would be appreciated for this noob.
