A colleague has a Desire HD, d'you think or know if unrevoked will work?
Cool thanks! So basically I don't mind my phone the way it is now. 2.3.4 is working nicely. However I do want to get rid of some of the bloatware. After I use unrevoked, what do I need to do then?
Looks to be that the Galaxy Nexu won't be out til sometime December for US people.
Makes me... I had enough to throw on pre-order for the phone, but it still doesn't know the price point.. blah, Samsung...
Use Titanium Backup, CAREFULLY choosing the apps you want to get rid of go through them one by one (I suggest creating a backup of them) and uninstall. TiBu may complain about it being part of system rom but as long as you're careful it wont break anything.
Personally I have had no issues using MyBackup root
MyBackup can't uninstall out of system/app/, i am giving a free solution with a free app as well.
Well I just use root explorer for that.
Which isn't a free app and also this is rather straight forward. Trust me I use RE alot also but for people who are rather "new" to Android this works out easier for them.
Oh Brandon, Im in the process of flashing back to MIUI found a really tight Christmas theme Im going to test out.
LOL I use a christmas GoLauncherEx Theme
Anyone have experience with the Casio commando? Rooting, Roms, etc. Father in-law wants to tweak it a little
I am wanting to put some games on and don't know how to go about it... I'd like to play Super Mario Bros, and Super Mario Bros 3, Mario cart and others. My phone isn't rooted and would like some suggestions on how to do the emulators and the games.
*Edit: I'd also like to avoid paying for anything too.
I'm having a problem rooting my phone (HTC Desire). I get as far as plugging it into the computer, USB debugging on, and charge only, but unrEVOked just sits there and does nothing.
WL, clean the contacts on the usb jack. Unplug battery if you use something metal! Or use a different usb cable. Some of my cables wont let MY phone connect to pc. I don't know why...
A free app for root file control....File Expert. Updates have worked wonders. Used to be buggy, copy/paste wasn't reliable. It is now.
I've just downloaded Airdroid. Fuck me, best App i've used so far!
Did you get the custom USB drivers and uninstall HTC sync (if installed)?
Also, I'm not 100% sure if charge only was the mode you needed.
Does unrEVOked even recognise your phone?
Rooting the desire requires a gold card (specially formatted micro SD) its a bitch to do. I gave up on it. I rooted and flared my wife galaxy s2 in 30 mins.
Hey guys. I've avoided smartphones for as long as possible, because i hate doing interwez crap on a phone, and I think data plan fee are outrageous. Well, I gave in. I got a special deal on a couple of brand new sony ericsson xperia x10 mini pro's for my wife and I. They are running Android 2.1. I'd like to upgrade them to 2.2 or 2.3. I'm a complete noob with this stuff. Anyone know how to upgrade on this particular phone?
Does anyone one understand what Fastboot is?
I've been trying to flash my Tablet with HOneycom (I have the firmware) but I need to get my tablet in Fastboot before I can use my PC to force install the FIrmware...
This website may help paulie!
Check these out Paulie.
I have yet to do it myself, I don't have any devices with a locked bootloader. Sounds like you are going to be essentially "unlocking" bootloader.
Nope it does nothing, just sits there and says I need to connect phone
maybe this is the problem
Hmm, is your Desire branded? Mine wasn't so that might be a difference.
All I had to do was install the USB drivers, put the phone in the right mode and voila.
Also, mine is a GSM Desire, not CDMA. But I don't think that has any real influence on the procedure.
Yes mine is sim locked to my carrier.
Looks like you should be getting an official upgrade to ISC by March if this applies to all Xperia's:
After all my damn research, I found that after getting pushed by customers, they decided to do an official upgrade to Gingerbread, which is now available at the SE site.
That is good news. I was a little concerned at first, picking up new phones that were released over a year ago. Looks like it will be worth the purchase.
EDIT: Appears that I am stuck on 2.1. All of the current updates to 2.3 and then ICS are for the 2011 Xperia product line, and not the 2010 x10 series. Damn. I really didn't want to mess with custom roms/rooting etc.
