Samsung Moment - What Is Rooting


This may have already been answered but after using the search too many topics came up. Can anyone explain to me what the term 'rooting' means? I have been using nokias for years. So have never been on android. Also what sites are best for apps? Free and paid?

Samsung Moment - Evo Vs Moment / Out Of Range Service Beeps

I am eligible to upgrade, but i want to get some opinions before i decide. I will not purchase or pre-order the evo either before it has a few weeks to settle in and also monitoring others experiences. My concern is that some of my gripes with the moment my not be corrected or addressed with htc either.

- Anyone here have htc experience as far as durability and dependability vs samsung moment. Physically and structurally to me, the moment has been great, want the same from evo/htc

- Gps, my moment sucks, what experiences have others had with comparable htc phones vs say blackberry which works wonderfully for us

- Out of range service beeps, these on htc phones or just the moment

- Cdma lockups, on my moment they are more recurring now with 2. 1 than before. Is there any reports of this with the htc phones

Hate not having a keyboard (evo), but these things actually are distractive enough for me to consider a replacement.

Samsung Galaxy S - Rooting Through Oclf

The most simplest way to root your android device is by downloading a app from the market, just type in one click lag fix in the search box and it will show up. Once you install this app, just go to your app menu and click on it. In it, it will give you series of options to choose, first, click 'root device/phone' after it does that, reboot your phone and hold the power button and the volume buttons at the same time when you turn it back on. When you see the menu where you are in download mode, use the volume button to select download packets. Once that is done, then your phone is rooted.

After your phone is booted up and ready to go, go back to oclf and click on 2. 0+ lag fix, this will put your phone on plane mode and will take a while to finish. Once it does finish, it will reboot and turn back on (by itself, i believe) once you get to the galaxy s logo (before your phone is booted up and on it's ui) it will take a while, so do not panic! It takes about 2 to 3 minutes for it to load up. After that, you're set and you may do what you wish to do!You must have a high end phone for this and it must be running eclair for you to install this.

Samsung Captivate - Way To Fix Lag Thing Without Rooting

Well ive had my captivate for about 2 weeks now and i'm trying to learn it and like it. I was wondering if there is a way to fix the lag thing without rooting. I am really thinking about going back to blackberry mainly because it might suit my needs better. This one does everything i need but not as easy but it does do so much more.

Samsung Moment - Is Screen Too Small

I am one of the lurkers who is considering getting a moment over the evo and epic because of costs. However, i'm worried i'm going to hate the smaller screen. It is still a good screen, but 3. 2 inches or whatever it is is pretty small for a smartphone. I have the htc touch pro2 right now, and it's ok, thank god for htc and touchflow. Anyway it's time to get android in october.

I wouldn't even consider the intercept because it's rev. 0. So, is the screen too small? How often do the data lock ups happen? I've been to 2 or 3 different sprint stores and neither moment worked when i went to play with it, after a reboot, data worked. So i'm assuming that was the issue on those phones. Is an android 2. 2 custom rom going be done for this phone?I see the wifi tether is a go so that is good. Has anyone purchased and extra battery and charger? As in a charger that you just snap the battery into while you use the other one in the phone? Is there one that you recommend? Is the battery life really that bad?

Samsung Moment - How To Forward Message

Had this phone a couple weeks now and still haven't figured out some of it. Text messaging: how do you forward a message? How do you send a text or forward it to multiple contacts?Is there any way to save or "lock" a text message? Picture mail:how do you forward a picture message?Is there a way to "upload" or save a picture that you receive as picture mail?

General:how can you copy and paste a link or text into a text message or e-mail? How can you "refresh" a page in the browser? Example - refreshing a "live" game internet broadcast like on espn or cbs. I have more - but that'll do for now.

Log From A Samsung Moment User

If you have a samsung moment and have adb working for it, would you mind downloading deadly chambers demo off the android market and running it with the log up for me?I'm getting reports of it "not opening" but no additional details. Just the crash log would help tremendously. I think all you need to do is install and try to play the game.

I can return the favor with an evo, tattoo, g1, n1, archos 5 or droid.

How Good Is Samsung Moment Phone ?

I'm a sprint hero user, my girlfriend is thinking about joining my plan and getting a moment. I know a good amount about android now but not about the moment. Would she be able to use the touchscreen to text or only the keyboard? And what are the good and bad features of the phone? Thanks for the help guys!

Samsung Moment - Camera Driver All Messed Up In 2.1 / What To Do

Google goggles is nearly unusable because if i try to use the 'crop' feature, it misplaces it due to some bug in the camera driver and/or app. The visible area for taking a pic is not as large as the actual resolution, so it's like the viewfinder only sees the upper left 3/4 of what you're taking a pic of.

Very annoying. I'm going to ask sprint to give me a chance to upgrade my phone early in light of all the issues this phone has had. I'm sure some of you aren't as agitated as me or as picky as i am, but i have pretty much had it with this phone. I shouldn't have to learn to get around quirks and bugs or have to use root access for full functionality. It's ridiculous. All this time waiting for the 2. 1 update, and they not only didn't get it right, but they cut out features.

Samsung Moment - Multiple Sd Cards As Backup

After reading about rooting my moment, it seems most changes are made to files on the sd card.
I have the original sd card that came with the phone and i use a larger capacity card in the phone. Question is, if i had to take the phone to sprint after rooting, could i just put the original card in the phone and recover to factory? Or is it more complicated than that?

Basically, stock phone on the original sd card and my rooted phone on the other card.

Edit: found the major error in my thinking.

Samsung Moment - 2.1 Rebooting During Phone Calls / What To Do

I hate to make a new thread for this, but i just wanted to throw this out there. If your phone is rebooting during phone calls try turning off bluetooth.

I have read many reports about 2. 1 rebooting during phonecalls (suspected to be caused by using jit). Mine had not rebooted during a phone call until a few hours ago when i arrived somewhere after a short drive. After i got out of my car my phone repeatedly and without fail (4 times) my phone continued to reboot every time i tried to make or receive a phone call. I thought about what i might have done to phone in the pat hour to make it act this way. Then i remembered that i had paired my bluetooth and left bluetooth unpaired but still running on my phone. I turned it off and was able to make a receive calls.

Granted, i still get an occasional reboot from normal use. But at least i can make calls again

Samsung Moment - Not Able To Add Contacts Through Phone / What To Do

Sort of. I recently updated to 2. 1. Whenever i add a contact into the phone it says it is saved however it does not show up in the contacts list. I then have to physically go to gmail and move the newly stored contact over to "my contacts". Only then does the contact show up in my contact list on the phone.

This can be a real pain since i add people to my contacts almost daily and need to talk to them that same day. I can search under contacts and find their name and number through the phone that way, but it still wont show under contacts until i move it through gmail.

Has anyone else seen this issue before? If so is there a setting that i am missing that would allow me to add and view newly added contacts on my phone as soon as i add them?

Samsung Moment - No More Notification Vibrations / Fix It

I've had this strange thing happen to me on with every new firmware and rom that i've installed. Notification vibrations for e-mail, etc. , Work for a little while, and then they just stop working. What's strange is that after i install a new firmware, vibrations work fine and just stop again.

Handcentsms has a "test notifications" feature that i can use to confirm the vibrations. When vibrations are working, "test notification" vibrates the phone just like it should, and when the vibrations stop working, "test notifications" doesn't make the phone vibrate either. So. There's consistency there, i guess.

Anyone else seen this? Anyone else seen this and have a fix?
