How to Move Apps to the SD Card on Android Froyo the Easy Way with SDMove

Thursday 05th of August 2010 /
If you finally have gotten your much-awaited OTA Froyo update, after obsessively having pressed the “Check now” button for a couple of hours (at least that’s what I did), there are a couple of things to keep in mind before you start using the new Move to SD feature.We recently did a tutorial on how to make Android install apps to the memory card by default, and we also discussed that some apps shouldn’t be installed to the external storage. Because when you mount your phone as a disk drive, the Android system will no longer have access to software installed on the memory card.If you have apps on the SD card that are loaded automatically when you start your phone, they will also be launched later than applications located on the internal storage, since it will take a while for the card to be ready: ever noticed that “Preparing SD card” message in the notification bar? One would think that Android should make sure that the SD is available before giving you access to the UI, like most other mobile platforms, but that’s not how it’s currently done.This is esp

Newbtorial: Adding Sounds to Your Android Phone

Sunday 27th of September 2009 /
Hello Android users,I thought I would be a good exercise to run through how to create/add new ringtones, alarms, and notifications. It is very easy to add new sounds to your phone by following the steps below. Connect your phone to your computer via theUSB cable. Your phone will notify you that you have connected to a computer; check the notification and choose “mount.” This makes your phone a discoverable drive on your computer.On your computer, hit your windows button + ‘E’ to open your windows explorer.Navigate to your phone and open it, most likely called “removable drive.”In your phone, check to see if you have folders  called “alarms,” “notifications,” or “ringtones”… if you don’t’ have any of these folders yet, right mouse-click and create them.  (you may have these folders already if you have used a program like ringdroid to make alarms or ringtones) Once these folders are created, any MP3 you move into these folders will show up as a sound that you can use for whichever purpos

How To: Sync iTunes with Android

Monday 02nd of August 2010 /
This guide is an easier, edited version of a article I read online. The source can be found at the bottom. For those of you coming from iPhones/iPods and have massive clean & organized music with iTunes, there is indeed a way to sync your music for free to your android phone. If you like it, support the project, the software I'm about to talk about is free.iTunes Agent - Windows based software that reads iTunes, keeps organization and brings the files to your Android Phone.----iTuneMyWalkman - Mac users that are smart enough to know that there are other Mp3 players other than iPods, install this software instead of iTunes Agent.1.) Download iTunes Agent, 2.) ---> Once Installed, the software will run in the system tray.3.) Plug in your Android (EVO 4G in this guide.) and mount it as a hard drive. The software is going to write files to your SD Card. 4.) ---> Create a folder on your SD Card titled Music. I will explain why below.Configuring iTunes Agent

adb - How to mount system in rw mode if no custom recovery

Tuesday 03rd of July 2012 /
When I changed my build.prop for spoofing another device model, I copied build.prop from another device having gingerbrad but my system is froyo. When I rebooted, I lost my internet connection. It reports no ruim card where as it is there. I had installed apks for terminal emulator, busybox etc. but they are not working. Xplore file manager does not work. But free version of Astro File Manager and ROM Toolkit work. I tried to push old build.prop on device using adb but it gives permission denied error as it is read only system. I came to know that adb root and adb remount works if you are in recovery mode.I tried to go into recovery mode, but there is no custom recovery installed on my cheap android phone, so can not go into recovery does not work in my adb shell.Can anybody tell me the way to mount system partition in rw mode using adb ( without recovery mode ) or is there any tool which will work in this situation ?Thanks in advance.

[Update] HD2 Closer to Stealing Android, EVO Steals HD2′s Car Mount

Saturday 26th of June 2010 /
We still haven’t seen Sprint or Best Buy launch the more desirable accessories we’re expecting (such as the HDMI dock and the official car mount) for the HTC EVO 4G. If you need a car mount and can’t wait until the middle part of the summer, then you could probably bend that HD2 car mount into a perfect fit.HTCPedia modified the HD2′s car mount by moving the location of the USB charging port (built-in functionality) and breaking off one of the dock’s silver grips to make room for the EVO. A huge plus is that the Car Home-like Navigator app launches automatically when the phone is plugged into the dock. It’s probably not the prettiest solution for now, but it works (and I doubt you’ll be paying a good deal of attention to how your dock looks, anyway, what with all that screen real estate consuming your attention).If we turn around to the other end of the spectrum, the HTC HD2′s getting closer to being hacked to run Android. The guys responsible for the project have made some great strides recently that puts the first bootable build of An

usb - File Transfer: How to transfer files betwen my Xperia Neo (Android 2.3) and Kubuntu Linux?

Tuesday 18th of October 2011 /
I have bought a Xperia Neo which runs Android 2.3 and I'm running Kubuntu Linux on my Laptop.I just connected the Phone using a USB Cable and set it to Mass Storage Mode. I expected to have the phone SD card in my devices list, so I can mount it and use it as a file storage. But there were no device added.A few Googling led me to some Microsft Applications, (Activesync, etc.). Does it mean I cannot connect to my phone's SD Card in Linux?Should I really use Windows for such a simple task, Tranfering files using a USB Cable?!NoteWith the help of @onik I tried to mount the SD card manually and here is the result:in Mass Storage Modetakpar@skyspace:/media$ sudo mount -t vfat /dev/sdb /media/android/mount: no medium found on /dev/sdbtakpar@skyspace:/media$ sudo mount /dev/sdb /media/android/mount: /dev/sdb: unknown devicetakpar@skyspace:/media$ sudo mount -t ntfs /dev/sdb /media/android/Error opening '/dev/sdb': No medium foundFailed to mount '/dev/sdb': No medium foundand in Media Mode there would be no /dev/dsb anymore.
