Strange Issues on HTC Diamond
Official Rom 2.03


1. I noticed that my Diamond open and close directly its monitor one minute before new day come, namely at 23.59.. Scheduler with one day frequency, is my selection for automatic background change.

It seems that application do something and awake my device. When scheduler has been disabled, the behavior of HTC Diamond was correct at 23:59 and it didn't open, so this application is responsible for this issue.

2. File names which apart only of numbers will never selected on background. (for example 56.jpg)

Any suggestion are welcome.

Regards

Do you have G-Alarm?

Yes I have Galarm installed, but I have no alarm activated. Furthermore, when I disable scheduler from AntWorks, I don't have the same issue :(

Just copied two files (111.JPG and 12.jpg) to "\Карта памяти\My Documents\Wallpaper\test" directory. Everything is fine....

I am going to uninstall Galarm right now and I will post my comments here

You are absolutely right my friend. I uninstall GAlarm and I didn't have the same issue. It seems that there is a conflict between your application and GAlarm. Do you use probably the same Scheduler machine with GAlarm ?

I don't know, but it doesn't work on device. I have created a folder in Internal Storage and copied two files, one with letters and one only with number.

Probably can someone else test it.

Keep trying good work :cool:

Thanks

My program uses standard Win CE function..don't think that this may cause some interference with GAlarm
