There are a lot of people joining XDA on a daily basis, and there are a lot of repetitive questions being asked
which clutter up the Development and 'Q & A' threads. Point them here. Feel free to ask or answer questions.

The idea of this thread is to get users to help other users with their problems/questions. People are usually
ridiculed for asking questions that other people deem stupid even though it may be a legitimate question. This
leads to new users being afraid to ask questions!

Only provide well mannered help towards users in this thread. Please do not spoon feed, but rather point in
the direction where that user can find an answer
and educate himself. If you don't want to answer, at least
point out where to find the answer.



Before posting anything, I strongly advise you to read THIS thread.

Then, have a quick look at the names of threads in Post No. 2, you might find what you need right away.

Third. Even if you do get your question answered, please do come back and read threads in Post No. 2
(coming later as soon as we start getting the guides) to educate yourself. You'll be surprised how much time
and frustration it will save you in the future!



No abuse towards noobs tolerated here! That means:
NO TROLLING
NO NAME CALLING
NO RIDICULING
NO FLAMING


ASK ANY QUESTION HERE! No question is stupid or irrelevant in this thread. You will either get an answer or will get pointed in the right direction.

Yeah once again I have seemingly painted myself into a corner where not having the right tools or whatever specific thing I need to do down a path that no one else has taken or at least documented but I think this is possible although that's me kind of just guessing what little bit of information I've been able to find and cobble together

    A stupid question...why every support to roms, etc is on TELEGRAM? There are indeed FOSS alternatives like xmpp, wjhy stixcko to something cklosed and non free?

    Hi guys, I have a question. I have a LG M320TV with power button broken, I tried to install a Custom Rom but I can't even enter in fastboot mode via adb to unlock the bootloader. The phone just restart normally without entering fastboot mode. I have no idea what's is happening or if the power button it has to do with this problem.
    Try with:
    - adb reboot bootloader or adb reboot fastboot, either, as one of these commands, probably you didn't try it, let the device without pressing a button, but for the other command, press the other button except the PWR button, the same try rebooting through menu, pressing the other button except PWR button.
    - Program your device to power off/on, at a certain time, and keep pressing the other button except PWR button, when the time comes.
    - Go to recovery through command adb reboot recovery, and from there you may find an option to go to fastboot mode.
    - Open the back cover and just pin the PWR button.
    - Connect to a PWR supply charger, and at the exact same time, press the other button to enter either to recovery (if it helps, remember the menu options), or to fastboot.
    - If nothing helps, probably you may take it to a repair center, most likely you will need this button to fix the troubleshooting you'll find tweaking with your device.

    Hi, I am very new to rooting and xda. Could you please explain what you mean by that.
    Thanks
    There is search bar at the top of the page.Members are supposed to use that / Google before posting a question.
    e.g. you can simply use keywords "Root+Nokia 8.1+Android 11" into the seach box or navigate through "Forums > Nokia > Nokia 8.1".
    Anyway, here you go : https://forum.xda-developers.com/f/nokia-8-1-guides-news-discussion.8433/.
    Hope this helps!

    This just tells me everything I've already read a hundred times and I have more specific questions that I don't want to go and make an entire thread about as that wouldn't really help me much either that's why I came here asking if somebody could message me so I could talk with them about this entire thing as all that information is practically useless to me that's just like the rest of this stuff I've been reading it just keeps leaving me with more questions than actual answers I mean really if I was confident in my ability based off of the information I got from all of the form posts here I've read I wouldn't be sitting here asking for someone to message me so I could talk to them about all this shenanigans

    Now I don't want to seem rude but this is just tiring no one else reply to me giving me form posts or "generic" written instructions I need someone knowledgeable to please message me so I can talk with you as that is the type of help I need that I can't get anywhere else certainly not from the form posts I've already read too many times
    I don't think someone is interested enough to sit in front of you, to give you all the answers to your questions, this site is keep alive for Android lovers, volunteer and enthusiast to help others for free, all here we have our lives, we are not here because we have nothing to do, but we reserve a time for others, but not to spoon-feed on you, most of us, started from zero, just reading and reading, and also bricking some device, from time to time, I never thought to ask anyone to give me a complete guide to make the whole process, XDA is not intended to do so, you have to search here, and read there, this way, you could complete and satisfy your curiosity. I understand, in some way, your frustration, but you'll never find what you are searching for, the learning curve is a process that never ends, no matter you can do it now, to your A20, later, the things can change (and totally) for the next device, so better, try to learn why you have to do this or that, and very important, the order how they have to be done.

    Furthermore, I could, because some guides are more or less, generic, for devices that share some specs, but I had the A20, it didn't take me more than 10 minutes for the whole process though.

    Just a few words of advice on keeping this thread clean of unnecessary clutter:

    1. Before posting a question, it is highly recommended to read this thread.

    2. Click the Thanks button on the posts that helped you, instead of posting "Thanks". This helps other members in finding out the best replies that get buried in the thread.

    3. Do not use this thread to increase your post count! The Off-Topic forum is the place for that.

    4. Do a simple search of this thread before asking to see if your question has been asked previously.

    5. If your question has not received an answer after a few hours, please be patient. Someone will answer you shortly. If you do not get an answer in 24 hours, you may BUMP your post. If you still have no answer after a week, do mention me in your post.

    Thank you for your cooperation!

    ZTE V970 Brick?

    Hi,

    I've been trying to install Bruno's ROM for this phone (cam with all chinese apps). http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1856578

    but have a big problem. I tried my best to follow the instructions but, really couldn't work out if I was doing things in the right order.. is there an actual step- by step for this procedure? I know I'm a noob and read this read that I am an idiot etc. etc. but I thought if I used to ROM on that page and the software recommended it would be easy.

    Here's what I did:

    Downloaded all the files as told.

    Tried to 'flash a custom recovery' as here http://bm-smartphone-reviews.blogspot.co.uk/2012/05/mt6575-flashing-tutorial.html

    but it did not mention how to use the ZTE custom recovery file http://d-h.st/Vgt

    I'm also not sure at all that the 'MediaTek drivers' were installed properly. The phone never appeared in the Device manager.

    I opened SP flash tool and followed this: http://bm-smartphone-reviews.blogspot.co.uk/2012/05/mt6575-flashing-tutorial.html

    and selected the 'scatter file' from the unzipped Bruno ROM (took a while to realise had to unzip it to get the file!!!)

    I noticed most of the boxes on the scatter file were unchecked but carried on and ignored a warning message about the phone may not be able to boot (the tutorial said to ignore it).

    I had to click 'download' then plug the phone in and eventually I got the red loading bar. This finished... then nothing else.. no purple bar.. nothing.

    So after waiting a few minutes I unplugged the phone.

    It now appears to be a total brick. What did I do wrong? Why no purple bar? Were the scatter items supposed to be unchecked? What was the 'custom recovery' file for? Because the SP flash prog never asked for it.

    Is there any point in trying it again or is the phone dead?

    Thanks for any help..

    Theo
