The Weekly Q&A: Week 23

Every week, we select five questions and answers, found on the forums. Even though some of these questions and answers might not be of help to you, they might still be interesting to read.

Q‘Does anyone know of a way to delete just a single text on the Samsung Galaxy Spica instead of the whole thread?’

A Open the messaging thread and long click on the text which you’d like to delete.

  • Q&A originally posted in the Samsung Galaxy Spica i5700 thread.

Q‘I’m confused. Every official statement I’ve seen from T-Mobile has said the UVKA6 is the “official” update to 2.2. But if you look in the development section everyone from Team Whiskey to Supercurio is calling KA7 official. AFAIK, Tmo has never made a reference to KA7. Do they know something I don’t?’

A KA7 is a leak. KA6 is official

  • Q&A originally posted in the Samsung Vibrant thread.

Q‘How do you amplify headphones without flashing?’

A Use Audio boost app on the Market. It boosts audio the same way as Voodoo does by upping the internal amp setting. You don’t need to flash but do need to be rooted.

  • Q&A originally posted in the Samsung Galaxy S i9000 thread.

Q‘Is there an alternative music player that supports HVGA? I found Mortplayer but there isn’t a skin available for HVGA-Screens.’

A Try S2P (Slide 2 Play) by XDA member A_C.

  • Q&A originally posted in the HTC HD Mini thread.

Q‘Under settings, there is this ‘Privacy’ setting where there are back up my settings and automatic restore. What is it actually for? Do I have to check them on?’

A This feature allows the phone to save some settings e.g. wallpaper, WiFi networks connected to, apps downloaded to the cloud. Then if you ever factory reset your phone, after having entered your Google account in the initial setup, those setting will be restored automatically.

  • Q&A originally posted in the HTC Desire HD thread.

We certainly hope that you can use these bits of knowledge. This site is full of wonderful guides for virtually every question you could have. Read them and put them to good use.

Which OEM Would You Like to Help?

Most manufacturers have moments of greatness and moments of decadence, and in the past few years we've some of our favorite companies' tables turned. Some are stagnating, some are struggling, some lack direction. Despite this, we often hold them dear to our hearts. Many of them could use a hand, be it with design, marketing, or other tasks. If you could help out an OEM and take it back to its golden days, which one would it be?

Root T-Mobile S6/Edge on 5.1.1 Without Tripping Knox

If you purchase phones from a carrier, you may be no stranger to the difficulties involved in rooting and installing a custom rom, recovery and kernel on such a carrier locked device. Add to this the extra layer of security that Samsung adds in the form of the Knox counter on its devices, and one can only imagine the roadblocks for enthusiasts who want to play around with their device without losing warranty in the process. It's a slippery slope...
