I was pretty happy and I even put angry birds on it as a test app but I just ran into a problem today that I cant think of how to fix it and I need some help. When I rooted the device I installed the honeycomb launcher just to try it out as Im new to android but I realized Id be much happier with Zeam so I installed Zeam and but nothing changed on the motoactv. Then I looked and it showed Zeam as an app that I could launch and I could switch between the two launchers. I didn't like that though because it took most my ram and processing power to run both of those at the same time. So I thought why don't I Factory reset my device and start new and fresh so I wont have any glitches from before. Anyway here is my problem; after I tried to reset my device the device ran out of battery. Now the device will only turn on only if it is turned on through the fastboot but the fastboot wont do anything because all it displays is battery low and that it cant do anything. Now if I plug in my device to the ac adapter the led wont shine and the device wont charge but, if I plug the device into my computer it will light up for 10 min or so until it turns on and the red Motorola icon pops up but then the moto icon wont move like it normally does when it starts up it just stays the same and then the device will shut off with a couple of minutes because it wont charge when the device starts up. So I am stuck because every time I try to charge the device it will start up and then turnoff and repeat. I was thinking if there is some way of charging it so that I can install a fresh new system.img. Or if I should try to do something else but please help me! Thanks and I'm glad to see this device get some dedicated fans.

Just plug it into the wall charger and wait about 30 minutes to an hour or so. You'll be able to boot it from there.

When I plug it in the wall the device it immediately powers up but it sticks to the red Motorola icon and the charging light wont light up. Also I cant shut down the device and put it in fastboot mode when it is plugged into the wall. Another thing is that the Motorola icon doesn't "pulse" or move like it normally does when it starts up it just stays as the icon and does not change at all. The second I unplug the device from the wall it just turns off due to not having any battery left, but I cant charge it!

The MotoACTV apk is extremely limited if you don't own a motorola phone. I have an Evo 4G and also have the notifications, but phone calls and calendar events don't work. I believe this is only for Motorola phones.

The MotoACTV software is kinda worthless to me, doesn't work with Google Voice, Market Updates, etc.

Update: got the call feature working with a reboot. Texts; make sure "privacy" isn't checked in options as it's set yes by default.

how did you get it to work on the evo 3d mines can receive text notifications but cant get the incoming or missed calls

so i may not post much but i just bought a motoactv(still might return it).

any chance a dedicated forum could be made for this little thing? It might stir up more interest in dev for the device. it could have some nice potential in the right hands.

install the motoactv app from the market. the bionic doesnt technically support the actv but with the market app it bring full functionality.

So I finally got the watch setup for what I originally purchased it for... WarDriving and Wifi Penetration!

Below are the apps I am using and why.
Quote:

WiGLE Wifi Wardriving
- Doesn't require Google Maps
- Upload to online profile
- Export to Google Maps
- Import Wifis from website

Wifi Analyzer
- Shows strength of all wireless networks around
- When I find open Wifi with Wigle, use this to get the strongest signal I can

Network Discovery
- Scans all devices on the network
- Shows Hostname, IP Address, MAC Address
- Port Scanner

Router Keygen
- Calculate the default WEP/WPA pass for numerous router types

Wifi Kill
- Kicks other wireless devices off the network
- Prevents wired devices from being able to access internet

Now as I drive around throughout the day doing service calls, all the Wifi Access Points I come across are logged. I get back home, upload to Wigle account, export to KML for Google Maps and I have a list of every Access Point I passed for the day.

All work well and do what I expect from them. If anyone else has any more suggestions, please let me know.
