The Weekly Q&A: Week 41

QA-img2

As part of our regular Q&A session here on the XDA-Developers Portal, I’ll be covering some questions and issues frequently seen here in the world of XDA. This week, we’ll concentrate on three officially sanctioned Google Experience devices: the Google Nexus S, the Google Nexus One, and the Motorola XOOM.

Q: I frequently get force closes in acore and google services framework. How do I fix this? [Question originally seen in the Nexus One Q&A Section.]

A: Really easy, this will fix either android.process.acore force closing or google.services.framework force closing.

WARNING!: This will wipe contacts. It seems acore fc’s when there are corrupted contacts. Usually by

Google’s Arduino ADK Working on Nexus One!

Arduino adk

Looks like people left rather happy from Google IO. Lots of news regarding Android, Chrome, and everything that people could have possibly wanted to hear about the future of all that is Google. Not just that, but also many devs that went there left with their hands and pockets full as well. In the case of XDA member Nikropht, he walked out of the conference with a brand new and shiny AADK (Arduino Accessory Developers Kit). The dev decided to put some code together and as a result, he managed to get his Gingerbread-loaded Nexus One to recognize and interact with the board. On the pictures that were attached to the thread, one can see that all sensors seemed fully functional, as well as LEDs, and even USB support. The l. . . READ ON »

The Weekly Q&A: Week 36

Q&A img Xda-Developers is a great source of information. Part of the reason for this is the general attitude of the members here. Websters Dictonary defines community as "joint ownership or participation." By working as a community, the members of XDA have been able to come up with answers to some of the most difficult questions posed in the mobile world. Part of my job as a XDA News Writer is to find those answers and provide them to you in a quick and easy to follow manner. Please join me for another addition of The Weekly Q&A.

The Weekly Q&A: Week 35

QA-img2

As part of our regular Q&A session here on the XDA-Developers portal, I’ll be covering some questions and issues frequently seen here in the world of XDA.

Q: I have a little headphone icon showing up in the system tray, and I have no idea why, or what exactly it means is happening. [Question originally seen in the Motorola XOOM Q&A Section.]

A: While the notification pops up at seemingly random some times, this is nothing to be alarmed about. Honeycomb simply places a headphones icon in the notification area to let you know that the Music Player app is running in the background. Sometimes, this is triggered by disconnecting headphones or removing the tablet from the dock.

Q: I don’t know w. . . READ ON »

Theme ADAMOID LuxurY DeSIGn for Nexus One

lux1p

XDA member adam2010 presents this new theme for your Nexus One using CM7 ROM. ADAMOID LuxurY really changes all colors and general look on your device. The complete package includes MIUI Music, Go Contacts, Go Launcher (themed), and Go Launcher Classic 2, so you don´t need to download any additional stuff to make it work.
For installation, make a Nandroid backup and then download the file. The file is not flashable, so you’ll have to extract it first, then put the flashable file in your SD card, goto Recovery, flash it, and voila!.
The developer opened a poll to find out what other devices should he be making this theme for, so if you like it leave your vote.

Add a Taste of Carbonite to Your CyanogenMod 7

Carbonite CM7

In case you haven’t noticed, here at XDA-Developers, we like hacking and modifying our devices. A big part of this, which many often look past while installing countless ROMs and kernels, is that we appreciate customizing the appearance of our devices as well. Sure performance improvements can be seen in benchmarks and frame rates in games, but even dramatic performance gains are often quite subtle compared to basic themes.

Luckily, there is no shortage of theme creators in our community. XDA forum member Trock79 has taken it upon himself to create a highly integrated theme with a blue carbon fiber motif. The aesthetic certainly won’t appeal to everyone, but that’s the beauty of it. It&#. . . READ ON »

HTC Desire S ROM Ported to Nexus One

1

XDA member abhi0n0nakul told us about a HTC Desire S ROM being ported to the Nexus One. So, if you have this Android device, now you have the chance to try a newer Gingerbread based ROM. The latest version includes HTC Sense, Locations, WIFI, GPS, overclocking tool for up to 1113 Mhz, and the newest Market, all working well. According to the original poster, you will need latest radio: 5.12, latest hboot: 35.0017, sd-ext: 1gb, recovery: amon ra passion and to wipe all data in order to successfully install.
As work is still in process, there are some things not working yet, such as:

1. Camera and camcorder (causes reboot)
2. Blue-tooth
3. FM radio
4. Video player (though gallery works great)
5. Few graphical glitch. . . READ ON »

Light Flow – Successive Trackball Colours (No root)

screen_capture1

If you own a Nexus One  you’ll find a few trackball colour apps around but all require root access. However, if you haven’t gotten round to rooting your device yet, XDA forum member andrewpmoore has written Light Flow an app for non-root users!

Light Flow lets you monitor a number of events and has 2 modes.

Priority mode lets you choose which notification type is most important to you and the trackball will flash in that colour. Succession mode is where the trackball will change colour and cycle through the colours of the notification types.

The modes can be set accordingly for when the phone is on charge or on battery, and the frequency of the colour cycle can also be configured.

Light Flow is availabl. . . READ ON »

Make Calls Via T-Mobile Wifi on Your Nexus One with CM7

Nexus-ONE-Tmobile

One of the thing that plagued Nexus One owners wanting to use CM7 was the fact that they could not use Internet calling via Wifi. Due to the fact that his girlfriend wanted to have this feature running in her Nexus One, XDA member unforgiven512 took matter into his own hands and started working on a patch to enable Wifi calling on T-Mobile, just like the G2 has. Cyanogen added as well all the necessary code fixes to get this patch to work in all nighties version 21 and above. Please bear in mind that this fix is only for those of you on T-Mobile USA and will not work with any other carrier.

If you have a Nexus One, why don’t you give it a shot and see if it works well? According to the dev, all bugs should be gone, but feedback . . . READ ON »
