    just had to fix an S2 for someone where it auto-selected speakerphone as the default when making or receiving calls. had to use a third party app to disable it (auto speaker).


    anyone heard of this happening and now the regular fix? couldnt find a setting for it.

    on stock 2.3.3

    Never happened when I had my S2. I doubt its current owner will encounter it too, since I put ICS on it last year.

    Android 4.2/4.3 HDMI out to TV not working

    Hi, long time no questions. Now I am on holidays sitting in front of an Schneider LCD TV with DVD, DVT and USB, HDMI in.

    I cannot get any Android device to work (they do work at home with more modern TV's!):
    Sony Xperia P phone with latest vanilla Android 4.3 not working.
    Asus Transformer 100 with EOS 4 latest nightly build : HDMI out not working
    Asus Nexus 7 2012, doesn't have "out", lol

    Is it worth do "fix" them (TV-update, device update/hack, cables?) or shall I better enjoy the beach, margaritas, reading paper newspapers etc? , :roll:

    try locking them to 720p and see what happens? never heard of HDMI devices that didnt auto negotiate.

    What is the relevance of HDMI 1.1 / 1.4 issues. Is it always backwards compatible?

    yes, it always should be. every HDMI device should negotiate 720p succesfully, if nothing else.

    titanium backup, looked it up.

    requires root, you can uninstall or freeze apps. freeze works better since most stock roms re-download the missing apps if you remove them.

    Samsung Galaxy Express.

    I got it working eventually. Or rather, it just worked after a couple of reboots. Dunno what happened. It works anyway, so I'm not dwelling on it.

    I'm thinking of using the NFC actually. Dunno what for, but something! Put it in silent mode when I go to the bathroom? :laugh:

    So android 4.3 came out today for my Nexus7 but I didn't update cause I have it rooted with the Trinity mod installed.

    Can I just update or do I have to load the stock rom first?

    Will Titanium stop google maps from updating to the new unstable version? It's getting on my nerves now...everytime I go back to it I find its updated itself and I cant find a way to disable that feature.

    If that nexus can be used as phone than 7'' I think its too big to use it in that way,would look very strange to have something that big at ear.
