The Weekly Q&A: Week 36

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.

Q. This morning I received notice on my Rogers Samsung Focus that I’m ready to receive the 7392 update which fixes the certificate bug. My phone is currently unlocked with Nodo and I obviously want to keep it that way.

Has anyone with an unlocked phone already completed the 7392 update, and if so is your device still unlocked after. I’m concerned that Microsoft may have snuck in something that would disable the unlock many of us have applied to our phones. [Windows Phone 7][Original Thread]

A. After several replies, it was found that your phone will remain unlocked after the update. If you have not been notified that an update is available, try syncing your phone with the PC and starting up Zune.

Q. Today I downloaded a zip file which contained some songs. I downloaded them from mediafire using my HTC hd7 which worked perfectly and I could play these songs. The problem arose when I wanted to play them again but was unable to because I could not find them. I tried using file explorer and looked in the temp folder but was unable to find them. Does anyone know where I would be able to found it? [Windows Phone 7][Original Thread]

A. It depends on the type of file

Documents you can do a save as and make them available in the office hub
Pictures are available in the picture hub

I don’t believe you can save music and videos, those are likely being stored in temporary internet cache that you don’t have access to. If the zip file was in your email, you’d be able to open it again from the email attachment (potentially without having to download it again).

Q. I’ve been searching and can’t find how to get Adobe Flash WP7 on my HTC HD7, any help? [Windows Phone 7]Original Thread]

A. Flash support ect is coming with Mobile IE9, which is coming later this year. Possibly with the Mango Update, possibly sooner. We aren’t sure yet.

Q. Can anyone confirm that 2.3.4 will break root on the N1? If so, will the GingerBreak exploit still work to root GB again? [Nexus One][Original Thread]

A. Update 2.3.4 will break root. just use the gingerbreak app again and youll be rooted

  1. Download the 2.3.4 update, rename it update.zip and place it in the root of my SD
  2. Then download the su zip and also place it in the root of the SD
  3. Don’t apply it as an update, because your phone will reboot once its done. If you reboot, you will lose your custom recovery. Use the “install zip from SD” option

  4. Once that’s done DO NOT reboot and apply the su zip

***Fun Fact***

Q. What was the codename for the Nexus One before release? [Nexus One][Original Thread]

A. It was both the HTC Dragon and Passion. It was released as the Passion.

That wraps up another edition of The Weekly Q&A. If there is something you feel may be “newsworthy” or you would like to share a solution that you came across, please PM myself or any other News Writer.

Among the expected announcements lay wearables, Android Auto, hints at VR and  the Internet of Things and, of course, a new version of Android.

Microsoft Reaches Pre-Install Agreement With New OEMs

As of late, Microsoft has been making a subtle but widespread play into the Android ecosystem, with small apps like Bing Torque being the foreshadowing of the larger ones to come, and as it stands, Skype and the three popular office apps - Powerpoint, Excel and Word - are thriving on the Play Store following their public release earlier this year, prior to which the Office suite remained in beta. Having its top apps on Android was just a stepping stone...
