Google Nexus 5 :: How To Bypass Setup Wizard Running Marshmallow
Nov 28, 2015
I would like to know if it is possible to bypass the setup wizard on my nexus 5 running marshmallow as my touch screen won't work (Because I dropped it) and the setup wizard won't allow me to use a mouse and keyboard using otg.
I got a 32gb Nexus 5 today. I don't have a sim in the phone yet, but I wanted to set it up. I went through the setup process, skipped the sim setup, added my google account, etc.
When it started automatically downloading things, this message popped up saying Setup Wizard has stopped working. I hit ok, and did see the error again. No other issues yet, but just curious about that one.
Is it a google app that needed to be updated? Or is it the fact there is no sim? Like I said no other issues (for the 10 minutes I've used it). Just curious.
Oh and a quick edit - I've done a factory reset and cache wipe.
I upgraded to Marshmallow over the weekend and the "close all" button is not included in Marshmallow. When I have a list of apps open I need to close them one by one. Is it not possible to close all open apps in one go?
I have two Nexus 5, one is running Lollipop 5.1.1, the other Marshmallow 6.0 (OTA upgrade).
USB Audio out works fine on the Lollipop Nexus 5: I can connect a USB DAC (iBasso D-zero MK2) using an OTG cable and play streaming music with Spotify, Google Play Music and local music files with Rocket Player. Connecting the same USB DAC with the same cable to the Marshmallow Nexus 5 fails: no sound when playing streaming music and local files using the same apps. (The USB Audio Player Pro app works fine on the Marshmallow Nexus 5, though, allowing to play local music files via USB.)
I tried the "Select USB Configuration" setting in Developers Options and set it to "Audio Source", with no success. Also, the "Disable USB audio routing" setting in Developers Options is disabled.
I tried to build a zImage for nexus 5 and I did everything as usual, git cloned kerenel/msm.git, git checkouted hammerhead marshmallow-mr1, got gcc 4.8 eabi, make hammerhead_defconfig, did one change in config (the only thing I need is TTL target support), make, got no compilation errors, repacked boot.img, tried to fastboot boot and my smartpone simply stuck on Google logo. I tried to compile without any changes in config and again, the smartphone got stuck at Google logo. Unluckily, I don't have UART adapter to see boot logs.
So I am lagging behind a little in the updates department. I am currently on kitkat 4.4.4 (towelrooted, TWRP recovery with system files modified). AFAIK, i can't use the OTA update I received months ago for 5.0. Is there anyway I can upgrade (without wiping any data), to 6.0? If not, what would be the best way to upgrade to 5.0 (not a clean install/wipe)?
on the marshmallow auto backup feature that saves app data to gdrive, does this also save the data like titaniuim backup does? or just the apps installed? I wonder if titanium is even needed on marshmallow now.
My Nexus 5 did an OTA upgrade to marshmallow today. SMS (handcent) and email didn't work after the upgrade. I fixed the SMS by uninstalling and re-installing handcent ( I think it is called Next SMS) now.
The email still doesn't work. When I click on the existing email app on the homescreen, it says 'app not installed'. The settings/accounts shows a Personal (POP3) account set up with the correct details, but I don't know how to access it.. There is no way to add an email app/widget to the homescreen... (there is nothing to do with email in the apps or widgets sections).
I tried to update my Nexus 5 to Marshmallow using ADB/Fastboot and Googles images. I have followed a number of different (yet the same) approaches to flash the unit and NOTHING works. I tried to go back to 5.1.1 and can not restore the unit. It has not bricked (yet) and not sure what to try next. I have read options that call for reformatting parts of the operating systems but fearful this will brick the unit. I have flashed the bootloader, phone, recovery, userdata, sys, etc., and nothing works. I know others have had trouble with Nexus 5 based on what I have read however to date not be able to restore the device.
Looks like one of the new features of Marshmallow is native visual voicemail. I think it's only active on T-Mobile so far and it seems to be working for me. All voicemail is downloaded to the dialer app and its synced with the carrier voicemail system. It's okay but not as good as Google voice as it does not convert the message to text. Otherwise pretty useful if anybody ever calls me and leaves a message.
I own Nexus 5 for enough long time to know how Kitkat worked. There is one thing that has drawn my attention - when I had Kitkat radio running on my phone, the mobile signal was great but after each upgrade to Lollipop and Marshmallow it's gotten noticeably worse. I was wondering, is it possible to install Kitkat radio when running Marshmallow ROM (Cataclysm)?
I am trying to encrypt my rooter N5 with latest Marshmallow. I have following apps installed - SuperSu, TWRP, Busybox,and ROM Toolbox.
I am trying to adb shell --> su --> then pkill -KILL daemonsu
And immediately I go into settings and try to Encrypt. I get green android screen and then the phone reboots and goes into boot loop, (I verified... waited for more than 1hr). I interrupt bootloop by powering it off and restart, it will boot normally but not encrypted.
I got this second hand nexus 5 with Marshmallow installed. I was wondering why m headset with button for play/pause is not working it all. It came from my Xperia phone before and it is working just fine for play/pause/forward and backward... It is MH750 with single button.
I used the second way, because the first one told me that 'system.img' was missing (not the only one), whatever; second method was good I did all it was asked but I didn't saw the one command out of the box "fastboot flash cache C:androidimagecache.img", I mean, I did all the command in the 'Code' box but the one 'fastboot flash cache C:androidimagecache.img' was out and I miss it.
So next I followed the step, select "Recovery" using the volume buttons, press Power Button + Volume UP when the android is dead with triangle, it's okay, but now the phone just rebooted and there were no 'Select "Wipe data/factory data reset' as tutorial said there will be.
And now I'm stuck in the boot animation since around 15 minutes I tried to update to 6.0.0 and it's just stuck in the animation.
I'm facing a strange issue on my N5. After the update to Marshmallow, the clock is getting slow. I have tried to malually fix the time, set it on automatic and even automatic time zone; but no prevail.
I just flashed the OTA update for Android 6.0 last week on my Nexus 5 and I noticed that with the new update, phone calls no longer get routed through Bluetooth on my Mazda3. It is able to pair fine with the car and can stream music through Bluetooth, but calls do not go through.
Here is what happens: When I place a call, the audio automatically gets routed back to the phone. If the other person picks up, calls will continue going through the phone speaker unless I manually select route through Bluetooth. Sometimes this works and sometimes it doesn't, but it does get frustrating trying this workaround especially while driving.
I tried unpairing and re-pairing bluetooth with the car, cleared the data and cache of the Bluetooth app on the phone, and even tried a factory reset, but the problem still persists. For the record, when I did this with Lollipop 5.1.1, it worked without a hitch.
I have just upgraded to Marshmallow (MRA58K), installed some apps. Then I went to Storage & USB and discovered, that there is 3 GB memory used of 12,55GB. The list below showed, that less than half of the 3GB should be used. Where did my 1,6GB go?
I had a lot of issues with lollipop 5.1.1 in my nexus. All Google apps connected to internet only via WiFi and it wouldn't connect through the mobile data connection.
And then there was the battery life problem. So I switched to PA 4.6 beta based on kitkat. I would now like to try Marshmallow.
My question is, will downloading the factory image and flashing it through clockwork mod work? Or should I revert back to 5.1.1 nandroid backup I made earlier and wait for OTA? I can see some post about a feature called verity and the complications it brings to rooted users in 6.0. Does this affect the process of flashing a stock factory image on a rooted phone?
After Marshmallow Update, my Nexus 5 behaving Strangely - Showing Incorrect Time & After Restarting Showing Correct Time.
The Time Zone is Correct But Still Showing Incorrect Time.
The Clock Running Slow, Sometimes 1 & 1/2 Hours Times Back & Sometimes 2 Hours Back.
After Restarting, Shows Correct Time, Again After Sometime The Clock Runs Back.
After Manually Setting The Clock, The Problem Still There.
On this day my Nexus 5 Clock was a day Off Like The Time Displayed on My clock was 6::30 Pm Thu 22 2015 Whereas The Actual Time was 7:37 Fri 23 2015 & when I set the Date & Time Correct, This is what Displayed on my Screen.
onReceive: java.lang.IndexOutOfBoundsException:Invalid index 286, size is 150
Is it possible to make a backup of bootloader? If it is, how? I am not talking about kernel (boot.img is the kernel, correct?), system, recovery, or data. Bootloader.My Nexus 5 came with bootloader version hhz11n. The factory image from Google (4.4.4) has bootloader version hhz11k.
How different these two are, but since hhz11n image can't be found anywhere, I want to back it up before flashing to Lollipop or Marshmallow.
My Nexus is still running 4.4.4, bootloader unlocked, rooted, with TWRP installed.
After updating my Nexus 5 to Marshmallow, I can no longer hang up the phone. The screen stays black when I move it away from my face. I have to unlock my phone or wait for the other person to hang up. Also, the screen doesn't always go to sleep anymore when it should.
