How to get Music and Videos onto your Galaxy Nexus


Tuesday 17th of July 2012 / androidcentral.com
Your Galaxy Nexus is capable of doing much more than simply managing your life. Your Android phone can also be a media powerhouse – once you figure out how to actually get your media onto the device.Getting your media from your PC or Mac onto your Galaxy Nexus (or other Android phone) is not always as straightforward as you might hope. Fortunately, however, there are a few very good options for transferring your music and videos onto the phone.The first thing you need to decide is whether you want to “buy into” the Google ecosystem in a similar manner as to how an iPhone user buys into iTunes.If so, this is probably the easiest way to get your media content from the computer onto the phone.Using Google Music and Google Play to manage your mediaWhen you first get your Galaxy Nexus, there is no media and no real guide as to how to get the media onto the phone. One thing you do see is the Music icon inside the Google folder on the first Home screen.Tapping this icon begins the process of syncing your Google account with all of your music and media.1.

Also, I don’t think this can in any way break your phone, but just to be safe, make a backup, at least in Titanium, and don’t blame me if something goes wrong.1. Download the apk at the beginning of this thread, place it on your SDcard (or phone) where you’ll find it easily.2. Install root explorer (or equivalent, I used root explorer though)3. Go to /system/app and mount as R/W4. move GoogleQuickSearch.apk somewhere else, just so you have it if you need

Verizon Galaxy Nexus users, you finally have the Android 4.0.4 OTA update coming your way. You were the first ones to own a Galaxy Nexus (see our detailed review) and experience Ice Cream Sandwich, and yet now you’re the last ones to receive updates. I know how bitter it makes you, and I don’t really have excuses on Verizon’s behalf, so let’s just get down to business.Note #1: First of all, the bad news – if you’re not rooted or don’t have a custom recovery, you will have to wait for the OTA. There’s no way to manually flash update files with full stock, which is definitely a bummer, b…Continue Reading HereVerizon Galaxy Nexus Android 4.0.4 (IMM76K) Update Rolling Out To Some Users, Here’s How To Get It Manually [Download]Artem Russakovskii – rss.feedsportal

samsung galaxy apollo - how to get skype to work when the phone sleeps


Tuesday 21st of December 2010 / android.stackexchange.com
I got a Samsung Galaxy 3 GT-I5800 with Android 2.1. Installed Skype on it, and when connected to wifi it works. When WiFi is not available it switches to G3. While I use the phone, skype works fine. If the phone sleeps/locks, no one can call me from their PC. I think it's because skype disconnects when the phone sleeps and logs-in as soon as I activate the phone touchscreen.What do I need to do, to get Skype to work and receive calls at all times?

Galaxy S3: how to get message vibration/sound on different modes.


Friday 11th of January 2013 / forums.androidcentral.com
Ok, this is pretty frustrating. I want my messages to use ONLY sound when on sound mode, and ONLY vibrate when on vibration. You'd think it's as easy as just pressing the sound/vibration key on the drop down menu, but it's not. I've looked into different threads here and none of them have given me the answer, I know there are two settings - one in the Settings > Sounds and one in the Message menu. The thing is, the one on the message menu is a switch that just makes SMS vibrate no matter what mode I choose, while in the settings, my vibrate "volume" is cranked all the way up, but if my "always vibrate" in the messages is ticked off, NOTHING happens when I get a message. So if someone can please explain to me how can I get what I want, I'd appreciate it. Thanks.

How to get a word file to Galaxy filesystem?


Monday 24th of March 2014 / forums.androidcentral.com
Hello all, I recently got my wife a Galaxy Note 8 for traveling. She will need to take along some files, e.g., MS Word files. Since she is not going to be able to count on WiFi access at all times, I want to figure out how to get the files onto the tablet so she can see them there (and hopefully use Polaris office to edit them). Obviously getting the files into her Dropbox from the PC is easy. I can see the file that I put there as a test from Dropbox on the Galaxy. But how do I get the file actually downloaded to the Galaxy where she can work on them? I have used ES File Explorer on my Android phone to transfer files to where I want them. (For example, to sync my Keepass database file.) But is there a better way? Is there a simpler way. My wife is OK just using Word or a browser, but she is very tech-fragile. If anything is at all different, she tends to have a lot of trouble. So I'm looking for the most straightforward possible way of dealing with downloading files. As I say, just using files directly from dropbox is not going to work since the tablet is not always going to be conn
