The Weekly Q&A: Week 6

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 modified HTC Sense icons haven’t changed after a restart?’

A Clear HTC Sense’s icon cache by going to your Device’s\ApplicationData\HTC\ProgLauncher Folder and delete all the *.bmg files inside. These are icon caches that will be recreated upon next boot. Delete all old icons from the Quick Links menu in Manila. Restart.

  • Q&A originally posted in the HD2 Q&A thread.

Q‘How do I go back to a stock ROM on my Hero CDMA with a broker USB port?’

A You can use the HERCIMG.zip from the 2.1 RUU and put it on the root of your SD card then boot into hboot by holding the power and volume buttons down. You will then see skateboarding droids and then a progress bar.

  • Q&A originally posted in the Hero CDMA General thread.

Q‘Can anyone recommend a file sharing app – Android to Android?’

A Try Hoccer, Bluetooth file transfer or Bump, all available in the Market.

  • Q&A originally posted in the Nexus One Themes & Apps thread.

Q‘I have 101 applications installed in my Xperia X10 and my internal phone storage is now only 148MB down from 1GB.  What has caused this decrease – is it the applications?’

A The 1 GB is broken down by 512MB for apps, 384MB for RAM and 128MB for graphics. However, Android 1.6 can only handle 256MB for RAM – a bit like Windows XP and the 3.2GB RAM limit. You can put in more but the machine will only see the maximum amount that it can use.

  • Q&A originally posted in the Xperia X10 General thread.

Q‘My HTC Desire always shuts down at around 10% battery left. It’s the same with different battery widgets, so it’s not the app.  Is this a false readout?’

A This is normal, you can recalibrate your battery which some member have done, and the device switches off around 4%, although 10% isn’t bad – ‘normal’ usage from 10%-4% is around 20 minutes.

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

HTC Delivering Ads Straight to Sense Home

HTC's 2015 has been a year marked by a desperate search for revenue. The HTC One M9 launched with its own launcher complete with a Smart Folder in the Sense Home Widget. This automatic pseudo-folder would populate with "suggestions" that were nothing more than thinly-veiled ads.   Just over a month ago, HTC began placing advertisements (that can thankfully be disabled) in Blinkfeed. These Blinkfeed ads appeared after Yelp advertisements began appearing on HTC's Lock screen. Users, expectedly, voiced dissatisfaction all...
