Huawei Nexus 6P :: Smart Audio Player - Grant Write Permissions
Dec 14, 2015
I got a new 6P from google to fix an issue I had. Both are running 6.0.1. I copied a few directories over to my PC from my old phone. Then spun up my new one, and copied them across. I can see the files in a file browser, but for some reason smart audio player app does not see them. I can push the 'grant write permission' and it lists my default storage as: "/storage/emulated/0" which is where the directories are. I can then see my books, but they are not showing up in the app to be able to play for some reason? I am wondering if it's permissions? On my old phone I could see everything (even stuff not in my audio book directory) when trying to browse for book source/root.
I am having the problem of writing to my internal storage. Ever since upgrading to 6.0.1 I have not been able to download anything successfully. I am currently on the current android version, do I need to have the phone encrypted for storage to read/write?
Did a swap from a 64 GB 6P to a 128 GB and tried just doing a nandroid. That would've worked but the fingerprint reader wouldn't work without a factory reset. I also accidentally restores the old EFS in TWRP without knowing I shouldn't, but used the original EFS (did a backup on new device before transfer) and restored it back to what came the device.. So I did that and re-did everything and it seemed to have no problems at first. I downloaded some Google Music playlists, Viper4A + busybox, and at some point my phone stopped letting me modify the files.
Camera can't take pictures. Chrome can't download files. I can't add/remove files via PC. I can't modify files via file managers. I tried chmod 777 sdcard but it doesn't fix the problem. I tried reflashing the ROM and all, and did a complete wipe but restored the data (only) from TWRP - so the problem might be somewhere in there. I haven't changed anything from the setup I had on the 64 GB - it was working fine and then just stopped letting me do stuff.
I'll probably try a complete factory firmware restore then flash the ROM all over again, but wanted to see if there was a simple fix first.
Having issues with trusted places now working for smart lock? I have it set as my home as a trusted place, yet it still requires me to unlock it when I'm at home. I've deleted and re added home as a trusted place. Same thing.
I Have the nexus 6p on version 6.0. Just this morning my phone was working fine and all of a sudden I have No sound audio. Notifications work. I cannot hear any sound apps like youtube, music players.. Do Not Disturb is not on. I go into sound and notification and everything is turned on and all the way up. When changing a ringtone I can hear all the options.. But NO audio... I have factory wiped/data my phone.
I realized there's an odd issue with my 6p. i noticed when you are listening to music or watching videos in landscape and if you rotate your phone 180 degrees upside down, the audio will stop for a split second and resumes. Is this a software flaw?? Or am i the only one with a defective unit??
I am on the M preview. When I have an app and I want to active device administrator I get the typical window explaining the rights I am giving the app. Then of course I have the cancel and the activate button.
However, none of these buttons work (either cancel or activate). I have tried different apps with no success.
I have a Leckerton UHA-6S.mkii external DAC/amp that I use for highly sensitive IEMs, since the noise floor with the stock chip on phones is too high, and the volume steps on android go from silent to deadly loud at volume step 2. I have successfully used it with my old Nexus 5 with no issues, but as soon as I upgraded to 6.0 on the Nexus 5, I noticed the output was downsampled to mono and sounded quite bad. I wasn't sure if this was my custom kernel (ElementalX on the Nexus 5) at the time, so instead of troubleshooting, I waited until I got my 6P in.
Unfortunately I'm having the same issue; USB audio output to the DAC is still being downsampled to mono and sounds pretty bad. How to resolve this? Is this a software bug in 6.0, or is there a setting that I can change?
We all know that in the past Nexus the audio recording in videos in loud places (ex. night club) was really bad, specially the bass that was recorded all distorted. how's the audio recording in videos in loud places with the Nexus 6P?
My brand new baby is giving me a Bluetooth nightmare. After I use it with Plantronics BackBeat Go 2 headset and disconnect the Bluetooth (even if I switch off Bluetooth), phone audio won't come thru the regular speaker. However, if I switch on the speakerphone, then audio works. A restart fixes the problem. But it is super annoying.
Just got a new 6P from Google. I have it unlocked and TWRP installed, but no rooted just yet. Loading everything up on the phone, and I've come across an odd issue. I loaded my 1500 or so songs from my Samsung S5 to the 6P, and Google player only sees some of the songs. All the ones I bought from Amazon and some other random ones I'd ripped from our CD collection. Rocket Player sees them all, but won't play any but the ones Google Player plays. Tried some other music apps, but similar results.
I deleted all the songs, put them back in different folders, wiped the cache on Google Play and Rocket, booted the phone. I used ES File Explorer to go to individual albums and try to play the songs direct from there, but still does not work. I get "Couldn't play the track you selected".
Google search said to nuke all the music and go into Apps>Media and clear the storage, but that is not an option under Apps on this phone. Doesn't really seem like that kind of issue anyway, since it will play some of the songs.
I have just received my Nexus and one of the first things I tested on it was the video playback on the AMOLED Screen. One Strange thing I noticed is that while playing any video in MX player (or any player for that matter), if the decoder is the default HW decoder, there is a backlight bleed like in LCD screens and the video doesn't run on an all black background which is really annoying. If I switch the decoder to SW, then its all black like it should be on AMOLED screens.
I'm attaching two screenshots which show the difference.
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 have a GB 2.3.4 Atrix 4G, and usually, it plays my music and takes pictures fine. But every so often (it seems everyday), I wind up rebooting after, when trying to player music, it says "sorry, this type of file is not supported," even tho I've been playing them all the time. Also, when this happens, the camera and camcorder also happen to stop working, saying "com.camera.android (or blur)" unexpectedly closed. All my songs are MP3 or MPEG4, and usually all play.
Why is this happening on an update? What can be done to prevent it? Are there apps I need to keep off the "auto-end list?" Does rooting a phone bring this on (via pre-install method)? Or is this a common glitch? I have also complained about the way the music player doesn't have an "all songs" option for the player. Personally, I think a blur 5.0 needs to come out already.
My Nexus 5 White suddenly reboots and shows up and stuck at Google Logo startup. It drained battery very quick and turned off while i was going back to home. At home I entered to Bootloader (Vol Down + Power) and then Power+Vol Up for additional menu to Clear cache. It worked and appears it cleared cache and rebooted but it stuck at the logo again.
So I decided to follow guides to Flash everything again. But when I try to flash Cache, Bootloader and System error msg shows up "FAILED (remote: flash write failure)" .
I don't know why but my whats app audio keep appearing on my music player list. I have already gone to the media storage folder and put a .nomedia file in the Whats App audio folder, and cleaned my cache. This fixes my problem temporarily but as new audio messages arrive, they start appearing on my music playlist again.
It is annoying to be listening to my audio files when on shuffle.
I installed a Screen Off app to save wear and tear on my power button. However, I discovered this app prevents Smart Lock from working. I set Pattern Lock with a Bluetooth device Smart Lock. When I use the Screen Off app the Lock Screen appears when I hit the power button. When I use the power button to turn off then Smart Lock works and it recognizes my Bluetooth device and skips the Pattern Lock screen.
Any way I can get a Screen Off app that allows Smart Lock to work as it should?
As an ardant lover of music and, in just a tiny lesser degree, of the N97mini I was wonderering of someone had succesfully been able to have the Music library search function to confine its search to music only. I am willing to use a loose definition of music to include Kylie, 50 Cents as well as K3 but for the love of God I cannot regard the no doubt popular tracks "Skype" or "SkypeIM" as music.Is it possible to restrict the location where Music library is looking for material to the location of locations where I, or whatever Ovi/Nokia application is installed, stores its music?
I used this with absolutely zero problems when I was running 4.6. I recently upgraded to 5.0 (681), and now none of the streams I used to use work. I get an error message, saying that it could not be open.Any suggestions as to A) how to fix it or B) a free app that will stream custom URLs? My phone has been reset several times since I first noticed this problem, and it is still an issue, so a battery pull/reset is not solving this at all.
I always walk around listening to audiobooks and podcasts.I also use the camera in my phone.But every single time i take a picture, the audioplayer stops.I then have to browse back to the audioplayer and restart it, and then browse back to the camera again.
And everytime i take a picture the whole BS starts over again.
This has never been a problem with my old "stupid" phone.
I am a bit disappointed with the N900's volume loudness controls, the audio player doesn't have an "Equalizer" either.Is there any Maemo software apps for increasing volume loudness? I just purchased my N900 yesterday & is new to Maemo Devices, I hope you don't mind if I repeated the same questions previously posted, best regards.
Occasionally, when I plug in the supplied headphones which are marked as model number "WH-101 HS-105", there is no audio heard coming through them. When I plug them in, they are detected and a message says use phone mic for calls. However, there is no audio heard coming from the music player app. If I unplug the headphones the music player audio comes out loud and clear from the loudspeaker.The only solution is to reset the phone, the headphones then work correctly and I can listen to music through them. This makes me think it is a software / firmware problem rather than a hardware problem.I sent my phone and the headphones back to my operator O2 UK and waited 4 weeks for my phone to return. They eventualy returned my phone with a note saying a new circuit board had been fitted and the phone would have a new IMEI number.The fault returned the first time I plugged in my headphones!I have looked for info on this fault on the web, but have not found anybody else with this issue to date.
I recently bought a Galaxy S6 Edge and am really liking it so far. However the one thing (so far) that I don't like is that I cannot use a 3rd party application to listen to my voice mails. My provider sends my voice messages as an AMR attachment in an MMS. When playing the AMR attachment the default app is sound player (I think), which plays the audio through the external speaker. With other phones I have had great success with WavPlayer which allows switching between the external speaker and the ear speaker. It will even allow you to switch automatically if it detects you raising the phone to your ear.
In short I want to use WavPlayer instead of the default app for listening to my voicemails from the messages app but have not figured out how to accomplish this.
using OpenCore (under the stock audio player), the media player will not play newer MP3 files with high bit-rate encoding. Any of my MP3 files encoded in such a manner come up unsupported and will not play. However, lo and behold, I put the MP3s on my ORIGINAL DROID, and they play just fine using Stagefright (under the stock audio player) in Froyo. Attempting to use Stagefright on the X2 results in skipping/stuttering with these files (though there are no issues with other files). So, what now? After all of the music skipping/stuttering issues, certain MP3 files are now just completely unsupported? What gives? I continue to be completely and utterly let down by this POS phone and the complete lack of support.
