Can someone please tell me what could the problem be? What files should I change for it to work? Thanks.

i think you have to provide the experts your logcat, for them to see whats wrong..

Does anyone know how to add a custom image for the status bar in a ROM that has a built in status bar color picker in settings? I'm theming a touch wiz based ROM and would always change status_bar.xml and tw_status_bar.XML in layout to call a drawable PNG instead of a color. However, in the newest update, the rom now has a built in status bar color picker and theming those two xmls in layout does nothing. Any ideas?

How do I change the Screen Refresh Rate? From 30Hz to, lets say, 50Hz?

There might be some sort of custom kernel configuration that might be able to set it.

Otherwise there might not be an easy/reasonable way to change it without opening the phone and reprogramming the chipset.

Usually screens are designed to operate at one rate only and that's the only one it will run with. Why would you need to change the Hz rate anyway?

Hi,

i really searched a lot and also asked some members of the comunity, but i could get my lockscreen's shortcuts working.

My problem is simple. I moved the shortcuts so they are now under the lockring. That wasn't that hard. But now i still need to drag the shortcuts down instead of up to unlock the screen. How can i change this??

It's a Sense 3.5 ROM for Desire.

Thank you a lot

Hey guys i got a huge question, im interested in learning how to develop APPS but all i can find in the forums are how to compile my own ROM and kernel and stuff, can someone point out or send me to a guide that helps beginners to learn to make their own APP ?
i have found this link
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z149x12sXsw

but this guy just runs around changing stuff doesn't even explain what he is changing and why change them and not other stuff or what he is doing
will be happy to get a normal guide im not slow nor stupid just a guide that will give me all the tools to work and build my own android app, i have knowledge in java oriented already

thank you

hi yall, if this is the incorrect location, then flame on.

i have an android all-in-one desktop replacement (acer da220hql) that i got from one of my friends for doing some computer repair. he got it in a lot of TVs he bought for his ebay business, but at the time, it didnt power on. i replaced the power board and the system works great; its just locked with a text password. great, i say! factory reset it!

but the sticky issue comes in: there is no way for a user to factory reset the device without sending it back in to acer, and besides this, the device is out of warranty. there are no hardware buttons on the machine other than the power button, and usb debugging is disabled, so no adb shell. i cant get into the machine to enable this of course, and i have no idea what google account is associated with the machine, and therefore i also cannot unlock it remotely.

this is where i plea to you for help. I know that the device is running android 4.0.4 or earlier, and i need to delete the /data/system/*.key files to remove the lockscreen password. i hoped that i might be able to leverage this bug (http://seclists.org/fulldisclosure/2014/Nov/86) to force usb debugging on, but im not sure what kind of sql query i would need to form to do that. furthermore, this particular device is equipped with a hardware ethernet port. not sure what tcp ports are open on there, havent nmapped it yet, but im pretty sure it would listen for dhcp.

So, my specific question: what methods do you recommend for brute forcing this lockscreen password (locally or remotely), or removing the password altogether?

Apps backup with multiple versions
hello,
I was wondering if there is a backup app that will automatically backup any app upon updating it from playstore
so I can always roll back to the previous versions no matter how many times I update it I still have all the previous versions backed up
of course backing up app data too would be a bonus.
I know I can manually do this but for a smart device things like this should be seamless
I have been disappointed repeatedly by application updates bringing more new bugs than features
to the extent that I have stopped updating anything for months now the phone looks dull
thanks
