This thread is for MODS that I have put together and for tricks that I have come across. As I mostly build kernels...there won't be alot of original work by me...but will be hacks that bring you the flavor you desire! If you have any suggestions, let me know and I will see what I can do.
- Black HTC Boot Animation
- AOSP Touchscreen and Lock/Unlock Sounds
- AOSP Alarms
- AOSP Notifications
- AOSP Ringtones
- Daydream Clock and AOSP DeskClock Widget
- Google Boot Animation
These are flashable zips done in recovery. As is the usual disclaimer...blah...if your phone explodes and melts the cat, causing your wife to divorce you...I am not responsible.
Tips & Tricks
- Need to flash a new recovery but don't have computer access?
Download (if you don't have it already) Android Terminal Emulator.
-Hit: Enter...you will get a # sign that shows you have root access.
-Type: cd /sdcard/
-Hit: Enter...this brings the terminal to the location of the recovery image (add more paths after sdcard/ as necessary).
-Type: dd if=recovery.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p34
-Hit: Enter...this flashes the recovery to the right partition. Change the name (recovery.img) to whatever it's called on your sdcard. The terminal should give you info on bytes sent.
-Exit Terminal, and reboot your phone.
- Need a log-cat but don't have computer/adb access?
-Open Terminal Emulator
-Type: logcat -v long > /sdcard/logcat.txt
-Hit: Enter...it is now running the log...so perform the action or your log will be sooooooo long.
-Hit: Home button to back out but not exit the terminal.
-Perform your task that is screwy.
-Go back into Terminal.
-Press: Volume Down + C....at the same time (this is the same as hitting CTRL+C in a computer terminal)...this stops the command and the log.
-Exit terminal and upload your logcat.txt file to whomever is going to look at it for you.
-Feeling lucky? Open your log in a viewer and search file for the word "error" or "fatal"...might give you insight to the problem!
- +1 in your contact's phone number
Download the app Prefixer by 253 Below:
Run the app, Menu>Add Rule>Manual>Outgoing
You can label the title whatever you want.
Make sure the Rule is enabled
Under "When Number Matches" Type this in
That tells it if a number is at least 7 digits long preceded by a + in the beginning.
From Time> 00:00
To Time> 23:59
Works like a charm. It does not edit the contact info, just deletes the + when dialing.
More to come...as I think of them.
