[App] SHORTCUT MASTER: Hidden Shortcut Explorer / Secret Code Revealer
Shortcut Master is a powerful tool for creating, capture, searching... shortcut. It can reveal any hidden shortcuts, hidden secret codes... in your device.
You can create shortcuts for any hidden functions or secret codes, such as App Ops, *#*#4636#*#* (Testing menu), etc...
* SECRET CODE EXPLORER:
Here you will get a list of all secret codes available in your device. You can filter the list by All apps, System apps or User (downloaded) apps.
* APP EXPLORER: (Package Explorer)
Here you will get a list of installed apps (packages) in your device. You can filter the list by All apps, System apps or User (downloaded) apps.
Here you can search the target by full text searching. Just enter any text to the search box and press the button to search. The text will be searched in the app name, package name and the target class name.
You can filter the search result by All apps, System apps or User (downloaded) apps.
* CAPTURE SHORTCUT:
You can capture the shortcut manually or automatically.
* EXPORT / IMPORT:
You can export the favorite list to the file on the sdcard for backup. Use the file to import later or copy the file to other devices.
*** ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS ***
- Some system functions may need ROOT permission to be launched.
- Some system functions can not be created shortcut on the Home screen.
Please be noted that it is due to device policy, and these vary from devices to devices.
To start creating a shortcut, follow these simple steps:
1) Find the target by using one of the following tools (under the Menu):
- Secret Code Explorer
- App Explorer
- Capture Shortcut
2) You can test the target by opening it (Launch button).
3) Create the shortcut in the list (Favorite button) or on the Home screen.
To create a shortcut for Testing Menu (*#*#4636#*#*), there are several ways:
a- Go to Search menu, enter 'testingsetting' to search. Tap to create a shortcut.
b- OR go to 'Secret Code Explorer' menu, scroll down to 4636. Tap to test if the code works (Launch 1, 2 or 3) and then create a shortcut.
Arrrrgh what happened to missing shortcuts?
I updated and it led me to shortcut master which just confuse me.
Missing shortcuts had all the useful shortcuts laid out perfectly but now I have a load of nonsense displayed and it s really difficult to find the same ones that were listed so well in the other program.
I also find that launching shortcuts don't work anyway. They get typed into the dialer then disappear and nothing happens. I have to type the code in manually too get it to work. Then the app force closes sometimes.
Please can you give us the clearly labelled codes as before?
Thanks for your* efforts
Shortcut Master has all shortcuts in the Missing Shortcuts app and more... You just need to find the appropriate shortcuts and add them to the list, while the shortcuts in the Missing Shortcuts are fixed and you cannot change them. With Shortcut Master, you can even add shortcuts to the home screen.
I can create a shortcut list and export to the file for you so that you can import it to your app, but some shortcuts may not work on your device, because the shortcut link are vary from the version to version of Android OS. So you'd better find by yourself by following the instruction in the given link above.
Thanks for your reply.
Ok, I have found a lot of the shortcuts now but there is one problem:
Launching fails to work on my Galaxy note 3.
If I have a shortcut e.g.. *#0*#, and I try to launch this, it opens the dialer, puts the code in. The code immediately disappears but nothing happens.
So I have to enter manually to get the code to work.
This happens with all launch methods.
So I don't know if this is a problem with the Samsung, but your other app always worked perfectly.
Regarding secret code launching, it is due to Samsung's security policy. As I have stated in the app's description: "Please be noted that not all codes work with all methods. Some codes work with two or three methods, some codes work with only one method (Launch method 0, which requires root permission). This is due to device's security policy, not the app's issue."
That means on the devices from other brand (e.g. HTC, Nexus...) you can launch the secret code using 'Launch 0', 'Launch 1' or 'Launch 2'. But on Samsung devices, you can only launch the secret code using Launch 0 (which requires ROOT).
Please note that on Samsung device, only some codes work with the dialer (e.g *#0*#, *#0011# or *#0228*...), some other codes don't work with the dialer (e.g *#7465625 or *#02288#...). But if you use 'Launch 0', you can still launch these codes.
For the *#0*# code, you have 2 ways to launch it (and also to create a shortcut):
1- Tap on '0*' and select 'Launch 0' button.
2- OR tap on '0*', select 'Explore' button, select 'HwModuleTest' to launch.
Both 2 ways need ROOT to work on the Samsung devices.
The holidays will be here in no time, so why not start thinking about … more
