Default [Q] Can't access ReLunch settings and TestCenterService

Hi! I don't know how it happened, I was customizing the screen buttons behaviour in ReLaunch settings and was very careful doing it. And it worked fine. But now I can't access ReLaunch settings menu when I tap on it, the screen flashes and goes back to previous screen(Relaunch file manager). The same thing happens when I tap on TestCenterService app; It was working fine before; don't know how to fix this; if someone could help please?

Use ADB and do a logcat.
That will tell you what is screwed up.

Hi, I have the very same problem as mentioned: "Can't access ReLunch settings and TestCenterService". I tried a couple of things to fix it: e.g. I reinstalled ReLaunch v.1.3.8 and Nook Touch Mod Manager v.0.4.0 , I reset the button's functions to default, nothing helped...

Following Renate's advice, I used ADB and did a logcat. Unfortunately, I have no idea what is the reason. I would appreciate it very much to get some more help to understand what could happen and how to cure ReLaunch of my nook Simple Touch.... I attached the created logcat, and its alphabetically ordered version, too (logcat.7z).

Best regards, Balint.

Sorry, I don't see any unhandled intents or exceptions in your logcat.
It seems to mean that the problem is completely internal to the application.
I have no experience with this application.

Thank you very much for answernig so quick.

One more info, that yesterday I installed ADW.Launcher, and it has a Settings menu icon (I was happy).
However it neither works! Instead it returns a message, that no Settings apk is available in this device...

Have a nice week, best regards, Balint

Oh, well that is simple enough.
Do you see the Settings icon in the "application drawer"?
Does it do anything?
Can you ADB shell in and see:
Code:
# ls -l /system/app/Set*
-rw-rw-rw- root     root      2084682 2012-12-22 13:04 Settings.apk
-rw-rw-rw- root     root        39973 2012-12-22 13:04 SettingsProvider.apk
(Your dates, sizes and permissions could be different but you should see both.)

Question still nook settings...

Hi,
thank you again for your message.
I am still needed a little more help.

In the "application drawer" I do not have a Settings icon, instead on the ADW Config palette there is one. If I tap on it, it returns:
"Application is not installed on your phone"

All the files in my app dir have same rights like these:
-rw-r--r-- root root 1620660 2008-08-01 14:00 Settings.apk
-rw-r--r-- root root 34031 2008-08-01 14:00 SettingsProvider.apk

I tried to change, however I couldn't:
# pwd
/system/app
# chmod 666 Settings.apk
chmod 666 Settings.apk
Unable to chmod Settings.apk: Read-only file system
# cd ..
cd ..
# pwd
pwd
/system
# ls -l
ls -l
drwxr-xr-x root root 2000-01-01 05:39 lost+found
drwxr-xr-x root root 2000-01-01 05:39 etc
-rw-r--r-- root root 1248494 2008-08-01 14:00 recovery-from-boot.p
drwxr-xr-x root root 2014-07-04 00:44 app
drwxr-xr-x root root 2000-01-01 05:39 assets
drwxr-xr-x root shell 2014-07-04 00:25 bin
-rw-r--r-- root root 2279 2014-07-04 00:44 build.prop
...

(You might see, I am not a Lx expert, although I have some practice in C, LabVIEW, etc.)
Best regards, Balint

/system is normally mounted read-only
To modify anything you will have to remount it.

ADW "Settings" button does this:
Code:
I/ActivityManager( 1055): Starting activity: Intent { act=android.settings.SETTINGS flg=0x10200000 c
mp=com.android.settings/.Settings }
If you can't see Settings in the drawer then something is screwed up.
You should run a logcat and see what exactly the error is.
You can also try:
Code:
C:\>adb shell am start -n com.android.settings/.Settings

Dear Renate, thanks for all your help. Finally, I gave up fixing my Nook's system.
I re-installed my backed up system then rerouted it. Now everything works again normally.

I wonder what actually happened.
Sent from my rooted Nook Simple Touch with GlowLight using Opera Mini



Did you remember to back up your Nook?

My works:

[NST/NSTG] Cool status bar modification!
[NST/NSTG] Framework Fixer!
Nook Glow Multitouch/USBHost Files

The best way to show someone on XDA that you're grateful for their post is to click/tap the button.
