The Weekly Q&A: Week 14
Every week we select 5 questions that we have come across throughout the forum, although they may not be interesting to you and your device(s) it may be useful to someone else with the same question.
Q: I am looking for a tweak\tool\registry hack (if possible) to have a Charge Only Mode for Windows Mobile 6.5 if at all it is possible.
A: Just use a different cable, you can get cables or adaptors that will charge only and wont sync. When you want to sync just change the cable or take off the adapter.
Q: How can I flash a branded phone with an unbranded rom?
A: You can flash an unbranded ROM on a rooted phone by using a “Goldcard”.
Q: Often times when Im chatting with someone on Google Talk, I get disconnected randomly, is there a solution to this?
A: If you’re connected via WiFi then your signal may be at fault due to signal interference, if it is on 3G then it may be a bigger issue as your connection *should* be pretty stable.
Q: When I try to flash a ROM on my Evo I get this error::
E:Can’t Symlink /system/xbin/[
E:Failure at Line 14:
symlink busybox SYSTEM:xbin/[
Any Ideas on how to fix this?
A: Use root explorer or terminal emulator and see if your busybox is at /system/xbin/busybox. If not then you need to set your path to include where it is, and install it so the “functions” in it are resolved when called. Search for threads on manually installing busybox.
Q: When will there be Froyo (Android 2.2) for the Galaxy S Devices (Epic, Captivate, Fascinate, Vibrant, I9000)?
A: Samsung has announced that they will release it soon but no specific date, just be patient, it will happen soon enough.
