Problem When Try To Make A Recovery Image On Samsung Galaxy S


Ok, i have searched and have seen 1 other thread like this with the same problem, but its in the facinate forum (on xda), so i don't know if what was aid on there apply to the galaxy s. But basically, when i go to back up my current rom, it comes up with a message like this: what was said in the fascinate forum is that i need to flash cwm with odin for it to work properly. Is this correct? And if so, how do i go about it?

P. S im using ***'s speedmod k12h 500hz kernal if that makes any difference to anything.

Htc Hero - Does Installing Recovery Image Mean That Have Rooted Phone

Im thinking of buying a htc hero soon here in hk but i have a few questions mainly about rooting.

1)does installing the recovery image mean that you have rooted the phone? Or do i have to install a custom rom in order to have things such as tethering on my phone
2)will the custom roms work with the carriers in hk?
3)will running the original stock htc .exe updaters un-root my phone and replace the recovery image so it will look as if nothing has ever happened?
4)what are the radio roms on the modaco website?

Where The Wallpaper Image Stored On Samsung Galaxy S2?

Somehow, 2 pictures disappeared from my wife's phone the other day, one of which is used as her wallpaper. Oddly, the wallpaper still remains. I searched for all .jpg, . Jpeg, and .png files on the device, but they are nowhere to be found. Where on earth is the wallpaper image stored?

Samsung Galaxy S Cannot Make Calls Even When Having Service

I was on the metro today. I got off at a station which has service when the rest of the metro doesn't and needed to call someone however, although i had service, i couldn't call because it said "no data network/connection" or something like that. I used a friend's phone and i was able to make the call.

Now i've only had this phone for a week now but if i can't make calls in a place where you easily can, then i don't know about keeping it. Also, my phone had zero battery while making the call so maybe that had something to do with it?

Issue: Camera Stopped Focusing Properly, Both In Image & Video Mode - Samsung Galaxy S2

My samsung galaxy s2 was less than a month old when camera stopped focusing properly, both in image and video mode. At the beginning you could see it would attempt to focus, but then it would stop, and image would be blurry. On several occasions it started buzzing, the sound coming from around the area where the camera is, and it would start rapidly heat up excessively. I would have exited camera app at that stage, and the phone would cool off.

I took it back to the retailer, who sent it back for repairs. Was it the description that the rep put on (he did not seem to have much clue anyways), but the the phone came back wiped and with a list of items they checked, and a 'no fault found' note. As well as an infuriating note that killer apps may be causing symptoms i'm having. I did not even know what are killer apps until today! I did have a barcode scanning app, but i can't imagine it would be its fault.

From what i see in the test sheet they have only checked camera for dust and reset the phone (along with two dozen items that have nothing to do with my problem). That means that potentially the problem may come back (hopefully within warranty period!). I took loads of pictures and videos today trying to recreate the problem, but so far it works ok. Anyone had similar problems or ideas what may be wrong?

Make Clickable Image Inside Canvas

I have create a canvas in android and inside that i have multiple bitmap images. Not i want to make these images click able.

I have tried following things so far.

I tried to add bitmap in image view as imageview has a setonclicklistner
But i think imageview can't be added into canvas , so i dropped this idea. Because even bitmap itself has no click events.

Unable To Click On Regions Of 1st Image Where 2nd Image Overlapping / How To Do

I have 2 imageviews which have animationdrawable backgrounds to animate a box opening and closing when you click on it. The 2 images are slightly overlapping (the transparent area) so they can be closer together.

The problem this is causing is that i am unable to click on regions of the 1st image where the 2nd image (transparent area) is overlapping.

Is there a way to set a clickable region of an imageview?

Recovery Firmware

Just bought the htc magic (32b vodfone version) and absolutely love the thing to bits. I successfully installed cyanogen mod 4. 2. 13, and 'permanently' (as worded by the tutorial i followed) installed the recovery firmware. I was just wondering, now that i have replaced the original recovery thing with the modded one and backed up my current firmware, can i now install any custom rom on my device with no worry of bricking it?

I just assumed that so long as the recovery thing isn't modified i could always boot to it if the custom rom doesn't boot, is this true?. My other question was, will all my apps and settings be backed up with the backup i made in recovery, or does it just back up the firmware?.

G1 Defanged Recovery, Radio / Firmware Update

I've been trying to find an answer to a few of my questions on on here and xda but i've yet to find a clear answer. Hopefully, some of you guys can help me out. I currently have a g1 and updated it to cyan v4. 2. 15. 1 w/ 10mb hack, my radio is 2. 22. 19. 26i.

1) i've seen that there's a new radio update of 2. 22. 23. 02 and i've also read you need drc83_base_defanged.zip for the magic installed so the radio doesn't revert back to 2. 22. 19. 26i whenever upgrading cyan's roms. I've heard people getting stuck at the google startup after wiping because they don't have the defanged base. Do i really need either of these installs? And is the radio update really worth the upgrade?

2) with the new g1 firmware update being rolled out, is this the same thing as the new radio update or is the update a completely separate thing? Also, is the update by any chance in cyan's roms or would i have to install this from a different source?

I am pretty confused about the new radio, defanged base and the new g1 firmware update. Not sure if they're all correlated with each other. I would just like my g1 to be up to date with the best radio possible (been having some sms issues lately) and not run into any problems when flashing cyan's future roms.

Motorola Droid X - Clockwork Recovery Mounting

If this has been asked/answered, i really apologize. I have searched and searched, and i havent found an answer to my problem.

So, i installed flyx. It went swimmingly. When i went to re-install nextheme, i got the error: can't mount /dev/block/mmcblk0p1

So, i thought i would try to recover one of my nandroid backups. Same problem. Tried to do it thru rom manager. Same problem. Backed up my sd card, formatted it. Same. Well, you get the idea.

So, i tried on a brand new x, installed rooted 2. 2 and clockwork on the brand new one, and had the same problem. I am thinking that maybe something about a file on the sd may be corrupt? I even tried a brand new 16 gb card, and had the same issue. Has anyone encountered this? I dont really care too much about installing nextheme, but i dont want to not be able to recover if i get in a messy situation. I thought about . Sbf, but if it does it on a brand new phone, then that shouldnt fix the issue. I will keep trying different things.

Samsung Captivate - Music Skips A Few Beats / Make It Not Do That

When i play music, it will out of no where just start skipping a few beats. This thing has the most powerful processor out there right now. What can i do to make it not do that? It's getting annoying and i would hate for it to happen around other people. Kind of embarassing that my high end phone can't play music smoothly.

Other than that and the gps, i like the phone so don't take this as me dumping on it.

Htc G1 - Home Button / System Recovery Issue

I recently purchased an unlocked and rooted g1 for my father, and he seems to have. Broken it. He said he didn't do anything to it, but he called me earlier saying that he was having trouble flashing roms on it, or something along those lines. I'm not too tech savvy, and i don't know anything about these droid phones, but i want to fix this.

The phone boots into 'android system recovery, ' specifically
Build: ra-dream-v1. 7. 0/

My first guess was to wipe the phone back to factory settings, and go from there, but this recovery system requires you to "press home to confirm. " The catch is the home key doesn't work. I've tried everything, and googled to kingdom come to no avail.

Can i change this 'system recovery' so that it accepts confirmation from the send button rather than the home button? And if i do that, do you think wiping all the data to factory settings will fix the problem anyways?
