Connect / Hook Up Galaxy Nexus To A Car Dvd Deck


So after doing research it seems the only way to hook up your nexuse to a car dvd deck (which none of them have hdmi yet) is to get a mhl adapter then a converter that will convert the signal to analog. Has anyone done this or tried it? Just want to know if it works as it would be awesome to have netflix on the go. I cant think of any other way to do it. Powering all the adapters would be a pita.

Usb Port Problem - Phone Going Into Car Mode Randomly - Samsung Galaxy S2

Ok, i'm not sure how this hasn't blown up yet but this is a huge issue and in my opinion it should be getting way more coverage. If you're having these problems:

1. With your phone going into car mode randomly
2. Always having speaker phone activated
3. Randomly connecting to kies when it's not plugged in
4. Randomly saying it's charging when it's not plugged in
5. Freezing, getting really hot, then loosing about 25% charge

Then you have a problem with your mini usb port. It is not a software problem. I've seen this happen to 3 sg2's including my own. I have been able to fix all of them by cleaning the port with rubbing alcohol. 2 of them unfortunately relapsed. I have no idea why or how this problem is so prevalent but it appears to be affecting a lot of people. What can be done about this? It seems like it is faulty hardware and not an issue with people just being careless with the port. I hope this clears up some confusion that people have.

Way For An Application To Hook Into Its Own Install

Is there any way for an application to hook into its own install? The docs state that action_package_added is not received by the newly installed package. Is there a similar mechanism i could use to acheive the same effect?

The situation is that i have some non-trivial data i wish to insert into a content provider before (or at least on) first run.

I would prefer to use my own api, rather than hard-code the sql, and the idea of checking the data exists for every call to oncreate() within my content provider seems a little crude.

Do i have any options here? Is there an android-y way of doing this sort of thing?

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.

Samsung Galaxy S2 - Mail.apk - Unable To Connect To Server

Way To Attach Or Hook-up An Adp1 / Htc Dream To Projector

I'm looking to do an introductory presentation to a local user group on android programming. I was wondering if there was a way to attach or hook-up an adp1/htc dream to projector or something, so that people could actually see an application running on a real device, rather than the emulator? Also, if anybody has some presentations they'd like to share, that would be great too.

Htc Desire Hd - Convert Divx / Dvd To Native Phone Format

Has anyone found a decent, all-in-one solution for converting any video format or disc to play fullscreen on the desire hd?

Failing that, does anyone know the exact specs for ideal playback on the device? I seem to recall it's h. 264 compatible for a start but what screen resolution is ideal and what audio encoder/bitrate is best?

I know you can get divx players from the store but i'd rather have all my files clean and in perfect sync (audio/video) if you catch my drift.

Htc Incredible - Phone Repeatedly Asks For Voice Commands When Hook It Up Via Audio Jack / Fix It

Quick question that probably has a simple answer.

Htc One X Vs. Samsung Galaxy Nexus

I am in denmark / europe. So no g4 network for phones yet (bahhh), but free choice of carrier. I have had the htc desire since it came out, and my boss just asked me to buy him a new smartphone and to get one for myself. I am one happy camper. I use my smartphone mainly for e-mails, browsing, camera, team viewer, gps navigation, guitar tuner and listening to pod casts. I don't watch videos much on my desire. I am considering the htc one x or the the samsung galaxy nexus

Samsung Galaxy Nexus Will Not Charge Unless Its Off

I walked into my room to find my 18 mo old daughter with the tip of the mini usb charger that came with my sgn in her mouth. I quickly grabbed it, inspected it, and dried it off and nothing seemed to be wrong. She also had my sgn but i don't think anything was wrong with that either. But now my sgn will not charge unless it's off. If i power it on and insert the mini usb. Nothing. I even plugged the charger into my old og droid and it started charging right up. But when i hook it up to my sgn. Nothing. Unless it's off of course. ***? Also, nothing happens when i try to hook it up to my computer. And nothing happens when i use a different mini usb/charger. But it's not the mini usb since it started charging my og droid but not my sgn.

Help/suggestions?

Nfc Tags - Samsung Galaxy Nexus

I had read somewhere on this thread that someone was planning on getting nfc tags and programming them so they could use their gnex with them. One example this user provided was to create like an alarm tag so that at night before going to bed he could touch his phone to the tag and an alarm was automatically set.

How doable is all of this? And if i wanted to do this and play with nfc tags to use with my phone, how could i? Is there some sort of documentation people can point me to so that i could learn how to program tags? Is there hardware i need? Where can i purchase this hardware- and the tags for that matter? I think this would be something cool to try out, and play with. Maybe even show off to friends (insert iconic my android is better than your iphone because. Statement).

Bluetooth Bug - Samsung Galaxy Nexus

I have been experiencing a 100% repeatable bug affecting the bluetooth on my galaxy nexus. First a little background: i connect my gn to my car's bluetooth for hands-free, and i also connect it to the tunelink adapter for bluetooth audio playback because my car doesn't support it. Both devices only register as having the only profile they're capable of: the tunelink knows it can only do "media audio" and the car knows it can only do "phone audio. "

Now the problem: the problem is, when both devices are connected to the gn, every single phone call i make is a garbled mess. Ever since i got the tunelink, i've hand to initiate calls and then switch them to handset or speaker mode, and that's not a good thing when you have to drive in d. C. Every once and a while with their handsfree laws.

If i'm in the middle of one of these garbled calls and i unplug the tunelink and wait for the bluetooth connection to drop, the call clears up immediately. But this just isn't a suitable solution to the problem, and repeated stress on my car's power outlets isn't a good thing.

Does anyone have a solution? I can't get rid of the tunelink. It's by far the best product i've used for this purpose, and i listen to podcasts in my car all day every day (i do a lot of driving). Apparently 4. 0. 3 was going to have some bluetooth fixes, but i'll have to wait for a future update (and for verizon) before i see any of those, and who knows if they'll address this specific issue? This is so frustrating. I finally found a great product, and now i can't use it.

Oh, and i contacted tunelink, and they saw no problems on their end (naturally - not sure whether to believe them on that one). They said to wait for a bug fix.

Bluetooth Headphones - Samsung Galaxy Nexus

I work as a shipper/receiver and i'm allowed to listen to music at work. I primarly listen to tune in pro radio or google music. I'm not a big audiophile so i'm not concerned with sound that much, i just need to find a solution because i've gone through a lot of wired headphones at work as im constantly in and out of a forklift and ripping my phones outta the jack or my ears. I usually keep my phone in my pocket.

Does anyone have any experience with these guys? I've narrowed it down to four choices however i want to be sure they'll work with the phone in my pocket all day. Specifically does anyone have any reviews on either the sports and or freedoms i'm leaning towards these , other options appear to be motorola s10hd or lg sbh 700, any opinion appreciated!

Notification Light - Samsung Galaxy Nexus

I know this has probably been widely discussed on the forums, and i have heard of the light flow app. Was wondering when the gnex's notification light goes off. I've tried calling myself and the light goes off, a bit pointless though with the full screen lighting up already. There are no settings on it, the thing is i want to enable notifications like missed calls, text messages, notifications from twitter/facebook. And without the fuss of installing a third party app.

Cannot Encrypt Device - Samsung Galaxy Nexus

I just restored to stock 4. 0. 2 and locked my phone (it was repaired and sent back unlocked). I'm going through the regular setup routine and when i try to encrypt the phone, it just reboots and nothing happens. I go to the encryption settings, select "encrypt this phone" and then enter my pin. I confirm again once it sees that i'm plugged in and have enough battery, but then the reboot happens and i'm back to the home screen. Anyone seen this? I'm on gsm. I had no issues encrypting on 4. 0. 1.
