    Post [Q] a BRAND NEW kind of charging problem

    Back with worse news. Just replaced my wife's micro USB port on her i9250 GNex, and.... same thing. Still won't charge, computer recognizes it. Now I'm completely baffled. Thought for a moment that maybe I had been such a fool as to have put back in the old port, but unfortunately, it wasn't my...

    Post [Q] a BRAND NEW kind of charging problem

    Yup. Just this moment after a really really really close examination of the port and comparing it to my own phone, one tiny half a millimeter peice of metal is bent out of place and broken. Gotta order a new port ASAP and try and change it. Thanks mate! But hey, look at the bright side... a...

    Before everyone starts accusing me of not running a simple search, take it easy, been done. And yet, nothing to help me on the matter. So here's the thing: Her phone won't charge. Not when plugged into the wall, BUT when I plug her phone into the computer it is recognized and allows file...

    Post Navigation bar and pie control doesn't work at bottom of screen

    Had the same thing happening on my mothers N4. Been searching and it seems to be a hardware issue. Something got screwed up over time in the digitizer on a lot of N4's lately, and switching ROMs, wiping and so on doesn't work. Sorry, bro.

    Post [Q] hi there

    Clockworkmod (or for short CWM) recovery is a custom recover, and not the stock recovery that comes with the phone. In order to get into recovery mode, when the phone is off, press and hold down the buttons volume up+volume down+power button, and you will now be in what is called the bootloader...

    Post [Q] hi there

    Sounds like that may be the issue, and if you take care of this, it should probably fix your problem. Try out this link and follow the guide here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1903105 If that doesn't work, let me know and we'll try something else out to fix the problem.

    Please provide a bit more information, such as what have you done with your phone... What ROM are you running? Stock? If you have clockworkmod recovery installed (and it seems you do) instead of stock recovery, you can't get an OTA update by pressing 'system update'. You need to be completly on...

    Seems to me you've flashed a custom ROM but didn't flash a gapps package, or something went screwy when flashing gapps. Make sure you have the correct version of gapps which is compatible with your ROM, and try re-flashing Gapps.zip

    Dude, that's absolutely normal. The screen is basically the biggest power consumer. My screen takes usually around 60%. It all depends how you use your phone... If you let it sit around and don't use it for over a day, you'll notice your battery accounts for a smaller percentage of overall...

    Post Can't see files

    I'm pretty sure that's a solution to the opposite problem. Hence, the files are showing up on the computer and phone file manager, but not in the apps. The .nomedia file tells the apps not to scan the specific folder they're sitting in. For example, yesterday my friends Galaxy Mini wasn't...
