I will lock my phone or it will 'sleep' after30 seconds of inactivity, but randomly the screen will wake up. This happens a billion times a day and its annoying because then it calls people or it opens apps and I just want to know how to fix that I've already tried looking for something in settings but I've found nothing.
So basically my phone just doesnt show up on my computer or any computer since like Android 6, not to big of a deal since i use airdroid to transfer files now and then, but i really would like to root again, so was wondering if its possible to root Android 6.0.1 - Build: MMB29S without a PC?
i can backup all my files if needed, and i have rooted in the past so my bootloader is unlocked
When I'm connected via Bluetooth and skip a song with the steering wheel controls it wakes the screen which causes increased battery drain. On Pandora the screen stays off to conserve battery. To me it doesn't make sense for the screen to come on when switching songs. As stated it increases battery consumption and you shouldn't be looking at your phone when driving anyway. I don't know if the same can be said with Bluetooth headphones as I don't have any to test with. People switch songs until they find one they like. If they like a song and don't know the artist then they could wake the screen to see the information at that point. To me this is a HUGE negative as phone manufacturers are making phones thinner and thinner thus reducing battery size. Not to mention upon switching songs it increases the chance of accidentally skipping another song since the controls come on the wake screen. I've tested this on wired headphones with controls and the screen doesn't wake so it only seems to be a Bluetooth issue.
Found my first irritant with 6.0 and I have barely started to use it. When I take the phone off the wireless charger, it no longer wakes up... so I have to manually turn it on. I am positive before 6.0 it used to wake when I picked it up AND wake when I placed it on the charger Now it does neither. In addition, there is also no notification tone when it starts charging, so unless your wireless charger makes a sound, you will have NO IDEA that you placed the phone correctly or that it is charging. (And yes "charging sounds" is still set "on" in "other sounds").
So I have been using stock ROM or very close to for the past 6months or so and constantly have this issue despite clean wiping multiple times while moving from Lolipop to M preview to M. At first I thought it was my specific car but now is happening with the rental I have.i am new to Bluetooth so maybe normal but I don't think so. When I connect to my cars Bluetooth then make a call, after the call I get a constant "bluesleep" wake lock until I turn Bluetooth off. If I make a call during the day while driving then get out of the car when I get home, it keeps my phone awake all night unless I remember to turn blue tooth off.Ive noticed it only happens once I make a call or use the Bluetooth for something. If I just simply connect to my car, I don't get a wake lock.
Is this how Bluetooth is supposed to work? I can't imagine so but the fact I'm basically stock and have wiped many times and different android versions makes me think maybe it's just an android thing.
I'm currently running Android 6.0 DP3 on my Nexus 5 and have to perform a clean flash due to battery drain issues. However, this will make me go through the whole backup and re-setup process again - backup images, backup Whatsapp, backup all documents and download, flash the phone, restore everything, log into the different apps, set up Gmail accounts etc. Obviously, I'm not looking forward to that it's basically also the reason which has kept me from trying different ROMs on my phone in the past. I know that there is Titanium Backup just for that job, but it needs root access and I can't root my phone because this will trigger the "phone isn't secure"-alarm of my bank's super cautious TAN app which will stop it from working (just like using Tasker does, which obviously sucks).
I'm not really and expert on flashing stuff on Android. I was pretty comfy not rooting my phone for more than a year. TBH, I didn't really need it, because I was not a power user, but I've recently installed a root app called King User (King Root, etc.). It made things easy for the very few apps I could not use without root permission. However, when I received the latest OTA (5.1.1. security update) I had to disable root authorization in order to install it. So I disabled it using the app's built in authorization setting.
The OTA update failed and gave me the error with the opened up android and the red exclamation mark. So I thought that the app messed something up. Disabling in house did nothing. Uninstalling it did nothing. So I decided to replace it with SuperSU using this guide: [URL] .... After SuperSU deleted KingUser and updated itself the phone remained stuck inside a bootloop. So I figured this replacement process messed up permissions.
My bootloader is locked and I have no custom recovery (because like I said, I just needed temporary root access for a couple of apps and wanted to avoid the hassle). When I enter Recovery mode in default fastboot it gives me the "No command" error (probably because of SuperSU permission).
Now I don't even know if the phone is rooted or not. USB debugging was not enabled last time the phone was on and now I think I'm stuck in this point where nothing works without something else. Doing a full recovery now would probably be asking for a lot, but right now, I would be happy if I could just do a factory reset or something...
SO i was doing a factory restore from nexus rootkit - i must have forgotten and let it use the nexus 6 files -- it did a reboot after some flashing but never booted - it's dead aside from having access to the reserve boot loader, i have access to nothing else. I saw a similar post of someone flashing nexus 4 firmware on accident and he fixed it this way, but i think the command lines must be different since his command lines were using nexus 4 directories
I have a small question regarding a nexus 5. Is there a way to know if my Nexus 5 has ever been rooted? In my office, we are having a connectivity problem with a nexus 5 and after talking with google they request us to send them the phone. They asked if the phone is or has been rooted which, I guess, voids the warranty.We use the phones for developing software and research proejcts, and I know that some of them some times are rooted, some times use not official-roms, etc.
So despite it looks that the broken nexus 5 is a stock one, I'd like to check it and to make sure that it has never been rooted. Is there a way to do so?
Apparently the Nexus 5 is not rooted: play store apps say so, and the bootloader is locked. Still, I cannot be completely sure that the phone has never been unrooted. Is there a way to check that?
I bought a Nexus 5 from amazon and when it came in and I set it up, it was like setting up a brand new phone. However, when the setup process was done and I was brought to the homescreen, it had SuperSU in the app drawer. I was scared because I do not want a rooted phone, so I installed Root Checker and that said that my phone was not rooted. However, if I launch SuperSU in order to uninstall it, it gives me a pop up that says that "There is no SU binary intalled" and stuff, and I cannot access the app further than that. Is there any way to uninstall it? (Also, if I go to the google play store to uninstall, it just says that it'll uninstall all updates from this app).
I've been looking around, but I can't find anything to suggest root is available on the stock kernel. CF-Autoroot doesn't work for 6.0, and so far all I've found is root for custom kernels but I want all stock.
Recently installed cm12 nightly via flashify. Lost root access. How to get it back? Also I entered an email id in the email app. Now I wanna delete it but there is no option. I already deleted in settings but it still stays in email app. How to sync contacts via people on cm12?
I tried to root my phone, but I cant get past flashing the superSU.
I am running the latest version of android and I tried both TWRP and CWM.. I get to flash the custom recovery and boot up, but as soon as I try to flash SuperSU the phone gets stuck into bootloop. (also when I use CWM phone automaticly overwrites the custom recovery to stock, I know how to fix this but I must get the root access first though...)
Currently I reflashed factory Images and I am using my phone completely naked only with vital apps. But I am not willing to back down, I would like to find the fix and Root it till the end.
I have a banking app refusing to run since it thinks thatmy phone (Nexus 5 running 5.1.1) is rooted. Only problem is that it's not. Or at least i think so....
I have understood that the banking app concerned checks if the phone is rooted by checking for SU binary in systembin and systemxbin, and fair enough, by xbin contains the SU file. I was rooted on 4.4 (or 5?) using towelroot. The bootloader has been locked all the time. I never rooted on 5.1 and above since I didnt want to wipe, and as it didnt matter much to me.
My questions are
1) Can I restore the root in some way, given that the SU binary exists without wiping the data? I tried Superuser app but naturally it failded to update the binary.
2) Can I delete the SU binary somehow without root access? At this point i only have read access to the systemxbin directory.
I installed CM12 on my Nexus 5 two month ago and it works fine. But I have the problem that it doesn't react when I press the powerbutton to wake it up from deepsleep mode. Then I could only reboot it.
I changed the "network type" in the settings to "3G" because my provider only supports it and I thought it could solve my problem. But it also hangs up the phone anymore.... I adapted the settings of the phone in the following way:
- Installed "Apex Launcher" as the default one - Installed Klear Kat CM12 as Theme - Additional Apps are: Greenify and SD Maid
I just tried the following steps to fix the problem:
1 . Installed another Launcher instead of "Apex Launcher" ---> I had the problem anymore with the other Launcher
2. Installed Open Gapps "nano" instead of "micro" ---> it ran without any crashes of the phone for a period of time. But now I have the problem again....
3. I wiped "cache" and "dalvik cache" again in TWRP --> System was clean and ran for a while. But after a period of time the problam "came back"
When I'm at home in my Wifi I doesn't have any problems with the phone to wake it up from deepsleep. Lastly I installed CM13 and had done an Fullwipe before... But I've the problem anymore .... I've the feeling that the phone looses it's reception and then the Launcher hangs and can't get up of his own....
