Hello there, my dear XDA community!
First of all, I would like to say thanks, to my dear buddy, mf2112 for passing on me this thread idea,
and helping and being with during while I was doing it
So thank you very much,I'm so thankful to you!!
Second of all
I had to include this one, because i totally forgot about this, and it's really useful
Especially for newbies in here, who wants to make a signature, allready has 8 or
more posts, but they're stuck! Can't find where to make it!
So my dear friends, this is from XDA to you!
"In order to combat spam, we have placed several restrictions on new user accounts, including the inability to use signatures.
This particular restriction is removed after you make eight posts, but please don’t post junk just to raise your post count. (MOD EDIT - If you do, your posts will be removed and you will receive an infraction)
Once you make eight posts, the system will auto-promote your account (this script runs every hour), and you will be able to edit your signature.
You can find this option on the user control panel (accessible at all times in the forums using the “Quick Links” menu item).
If this answer didn’t solve your problem, use our general contact form to email the webmaster."
So let's start!
I've noticed that there is a lot of people going around in here, asking questions
without explain the problem as it's supposed to be explained, and without explaining
what is the model of the phone, what's their ROM in case they're little bit advanced....etc..
You got my point!
So,I'll do my best in making this guide which is supposed to help you making a
great, well informing signature
1.) Let's see what are specifications of my phone
Ok, if you're Android user, and I asume you are..
The best thing to find out what's your phone specifications is:
- Looking on back of mobile phone box
There is plenty information,but sometimes not enough..
- And also there's informations about your phone in your phone...
To find informations on the box:
To find informations on your phone:
Settings=>About phone=>Software information
There they are!
We don't need know any hardware specifications of your phone, expect the
model of your phone..
That's it, everything else about the hardware, we already know!
So in Software informations is written:
- Android Version
- HTC Sense version (HTC User ) if you're Samsung user, there'll probably be written TouchWiz version
- Software Number (name of your CUSTOM ROM)
- More (baseband,kernel version, etc.) MOST IMPORTANT INFORMATIONS!
Ok, there's already a lot of informations going on!!
But just one more little step to finding out most important informations for your
That button, "More" there are informations of:
- Kernel version
- Baseband (radio) version
- Build (base) number
- Browser version
We can also add HBOOT (Bootloader) and Recovery version in signature
To access HBOOT (Bootloader) menu on your phone you've got to do this:
First of all, be sure that FASTBOOT is UNTICKED on your phone..
Turn off your phone
Hold volume down button while pressing and holding the power button!
And it should open you screen like this.
If you somehow can't access it with button combination, you can also
download and install QUICK BOOT app from Google Play Store
Which allows you access HBOOT (Bootloader) and Recovery while your phone
I have to say that that app is just perfect and does her job perfectly!
But it's pretty much the same except the numbers
You can see on the first picture is written:
and in the second one is written
That's it...now you know your HBOOT version!
Now let's see what Recovery version do we have installed
To access Recovery, you can do it through HBOOT (Bootloader) menu,
Or, with Quick Boot app!
Once you get in there it should be something like this:
These two are 4Ext Recovery!
and we also have Clockworkmod Recovery
So on the 1st picture version is:
v188.8.131.52 RC 2
Now we've got our Recovery version written down!
So we've got our informations now!
2.) Making a signature on XDA Developers forum
Let's asume that you've got already 5-8 post so you good to go!
If not, read THIS
First of all, login to your XDA account
Next step is...
Enter your USER CONTROL PANEL!
After you entered it, you will get this!
Click on EDIT SIGNATURE!
And that will open you this:
We can make your signature now!
So, let's start!
- PHONE: Manufacture and model name of your phone
- ANDROID VERSION: Android version of your phone
- HTC SENSE or TouchWiz VERSION: HTC SENSE or TouchWiz version
- KERNEL VERSION: Write you kernel version
- BASEBAND VERSION: Write you baseband version
- BUILD NUMBER: Write down you build number!
That's the best pattern of having a best signature!
So what you're going to do?!
You're gonna follow these steps and make yourself a best signature, so
people can help you faster and more efficient!
So COPY/PASTE THESE FEW EXAMPLES IN YOUR NEW SIGNATURE:
Phone: HTC Sense: Software number: Kernel version: Baseband version: Build number:
Phone: TouchWiz: Software number: Kernel version Baseband version Build number:
Phone: HTC Sense: Software number: Kernel version: Baseband version: Build number: HBOOT: Recovery:
Phone: TouchWiz: Software number: Kernel version Baseband version Build number: HBOOT: Recovery:
And after you did that, just fill it with your informations!
When your're not sure what does it look like, press PREVIEW SIGNATURE
in the bottom of the page and it will show it to you what does it look like
before you publish it.
And there's one thing I completly forgot about it..
Modding your signature, adding different styles, pictures, what ever you want
You can do it with BB CODE !
It's all well explained there, so there no need of C/P it in here!
But when you're over with making your signature,when you're completly satisfied
with it, press SAVE SIGNATURE!
And that's it, YOU'VE GOT YOUR SIGNATURE!
