The Weekly Q&A: Week 43

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‘My phone constantly runs out of battery when I need it the most,what can I use as a backup?’

A Try Power Fort portable battery chargers, charges one full cycle on the Desire.

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

Q‘Does anyone have a video player that’s working on this build that’ll play .avi files? I keep getting a message “The file cannot be played with the System Player” when I use RockPlayer?’

A Try MoboPlayer, it has played avi files successfully in the past.

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

Q‘Is there a way to remove branding on the LG P920? I bought the phone outright but it is filled with useless stuff from Optus here in Australia and I am with Vodafone?’

A Dial ##002# to turn off diversions and dial ##21# to turn off call redirect. This supposedly turns off all Optus services but you may still need to disable them separately.

  • Q&A originally posted in the LG Optimus 3D thread.

Q‘I am looking for a B60K or higher series dock, but all the ones in the stores are only B50K. If you have a DOCK with B60K or higher, where did you get it?’

A Try the Currys website – they never had any in store but had the bundle online. Amazon also had it online.

  • Q&A originally posted in the Asus Eee Pad Transformer thread.

Q‘Following installation of CyanogenMod 7.1.0 RC1 my original Vodafone rom of 1.6 allowed HTC Sync, removed HTC sync from device and its automatically reinstalled it when using the usb connection cable. However i only get a usb storage mode, not a ‘HTC Sync’ now?’

A HTC Sync is a HTC Program that will only work with the stock ROM, because once flashed, your device won’t have any HTC software. It’s like if you wanted to use HTC sync with a non-HTC Android phone.

  • Q&A originally posted in the HTC Tattoo 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.

I/O Summary: Google Cardboard Virtual Reality

One year ago, Google introduced cardboard. Amazingly enough, that was all it took to fire up the Virtual Reality scene on Android, and what began as an open design concept exploded into thousands of apps and dozens of headsets from big and small vendors alike. Now, there are more than 1 million cardboard viewers/handsets - a Google-quoted number that might not even be accurate given the ease with which headsets can be rigged through off-the-shelf equipment. This year, cardboard returned...
