How to reflash a tablet (Onda V712) that won't boot or go into recovery mode? - Android Tablets - Android Forum - A Community For Android Users and Enthusiasts
Friday 05th of October 2012
Hello allI have a peculiar problem with my Onda V712. I'm hoping that you guys may be able to help me out.The tablet was working fine and was 90% charged. I was having some issues with my google account so I decided to delete it and set it up again. After deleting the google account I switched off the tablet. When I switched it on again a white android bot came on the screen and nothing beyond that. I waited for almost 30 minutes but there was no progress. The tablet wouldn't boot up beyond the white android bot. I rebooted it several times but no luck. I have tried the following so far-1. let the battery drain completely by leaving it switched on. The white android bot was on all the time. Then I charged the tablet for 6 hours and tried to boot but the issue persists.2. Tried the reset button several times with no luck.3. Tried to get into recovery mode by holding the home button and then pressing/tapping the power button. The tablet doesn't go into recovery. It just shows the white android bot and there is no progress after that.4. Downloaded the latest firmware from th

*newbie* - Can't answer calls properly!! HELP!!! - Android Phones - Android Forum - A Community For Android Users and Enthusiasts
Tuesday 27th of November 2012
Got my new HTC Desire C a few days ago.On the incoming call screen, when I press 'answer' - every other call connects but the screen goes blank. Can't access keypad, can't press end call, can't access speakerphone, can't access home -NOTHING but hearing the call on the other end.When I say 'every other call' , I mean incoming call A goes through fine, but then incoming call B goes through to a blank screen, call C goes through fine, etc.The only way to end the call from the problematic 'blank screen mode' is to either end the call with the top power button, or wait until the caller hangs up, at which point the screen goes back to normal.Spoke to HTC and they told me to do a factory reset, which didn't help. All I can do now is take the phone back, but I bought it on ebay (boxed new from a reliable seller) so this isn't so simplePLEASE HELP!!

Data Won't work On Custom Rom! Help me! - Samsung Galaxy S II - Android Forum - A Community For Android Users and Enthusiasts
Friday 16th of November 2012
Okay, so I installed this custom rom called "Jedi Mind Trick" (newest version (x1)), but the thing is, my data isn't working and my notification vibration isn't working,Can someone please help me, I don't want to leave this rom to a different one just because of one thing because I really like it. There is a newer one by the otherwhich is exactly like it but it has some better things to it, but I watched a video of it and the guy in the video says that its not as fast as the Jedi mind trick rom, but its still really fast. So either I should switch to that rom "Koodo s3 Ics Rom" or should I stay on Jedi Mind trick but fix that problem? Let me know. Thanks a lot.(Btw, This on a Samsung Galaxy S2X T989D, doesn't really make a difference but its the canadian version)

DropBox files won't open, 'Permanent Failure'
Thursday 02nd of February 2012
Opening files from the DropBox app seems to always result in a 'Permanent Failure' message. I see that some of the progress bar fills before the error appears. In the past I used DropBox to view many file types, including JPG, TXT and PDF.I am Googling the problem but I don't see anything specific in the results. I'm wondering if it is due to having too full of an SD card. I will test that shortly.Device: HTC Incredible (Android 2.3.4), App version: 2.0.1

email - Jelly Bean IMAP, Couldn't open connection to server
Thursday 23rd of August 2012
Well, finally got my Nexus 7. Set up all the basics and hit a pretty big roadblock, the email account setup for IMAP simply won't work.Just to clarify, I'm absolutely certain all the details I've put in are 100% correct, I've double-, triple-, quadruple- and so on-checked them. They are exactly the same as the settings I use on my iPhone, in Mail.app on my Mac and in Thunderbird on my laptop. All three of these devices are on the same network behind the same FreeBSD machine that does packet filtering, they are all on the same subnet and subject to the same packet filtering rules.The IMAP(S) server is my own running on a Debian VPS and here's the kicker, when I check the logs all the other clients' connections are clearly visible but no connections from the Nexus 7 show up. The Nexus 7 has shown no other signs of network issues but whenever I try to setup an IMAP account I get Couldn't open connection to serverthrown back at me immediately (no delay indicating some kind of timeout, immediate, right away, BAM!).So, does anyone have suggestions on how I can fix this? I've tried googlin

Can't open pictures from SD card anymore. - Android Phones - Android Forum - A Community For Android Users and Enthusiasts
Hi,I have Samsung Galaxy SII with Samsung 32GB SD micro card. The phone was saving pictures authomaticly to the SD card. Everything was fine until few days ago. I couldn't open some pictures from the last trip. There were blank places instead of thumbnails. I decided to save the rest of the pictures (that survived)from the cardon to my computer, unfortunately, before I've done it I couldn't open the rest of them. Now it looks like it's taking a few pictures (and movies) a dayfrom my memory card.When I copy these pictures on to my computer, I can see the jpeg icon (no thumbnail), the files have sensible sizes (2-3 MB), they areall jpeg filesI just can't open them.I've tried disc recovery, digital image recovery, but it didn't help.Sad thing is that I had similar problem before, but Iwas usinga cheap, chinesseno name sd card. I thought it was just faulty card, so decided to go for Samsung 32GB, and now I have the same problem. The card is only filled with 3GB (photos, movies, music). It was formated before I started using it. Is this sth wrong with my phone or rather SD card?Also, when
