I forgot to mention another trick for the new Android 4.2. Do you remember going to Settings->Developer options and enabling/disabling from there various stuff such as “usb debugging” for example.
Well these “Developer options” are not available any more. Just not like that.
They are by default disabled and to enable them you need to Settings->About phone-> and tap 7 times on the “Build number”.

Pretty tricky , yea :)

adb sideload

I would like to introduce a small but handy improvement in Android recovery as well as in the adb client. (CWM had it for some time though).

The update is that now you can use the command:

adb sideload update.zip|

to push and flash an update to your android device.

What you need to do  is:

  1. to update you Android SDK, adb in particularshould be version 1.0.31
  2. Reboot the device in recovery
  3. Select “apply package from ADB” from the recovery menu
  4. Execute from the PC “adb sideload update.zip”

What happens is that  a “minimal adb daemon” is started on the device which is responsible only for receiving the update package so you do not need to upload the update.zip anywhere but just sideload it to the device. The zip will be then saved into the \tmp ramdisk, verified and loaded from there.

This is really handy and at the same time quite useful if you have for example an unbootable device.

Android 4.2 for yakjuxw

So many people are asking for android 4.2 for yakjuxw. I will propose you a simple solution which I did myself.

As explained in Galaxy Nexus yakju, takju, yakjuXX mistery yakju, takju or yakjuxw are just different software profiles. So in case of yakjuxw if you do not want to stick to the updates provided by Samsung but get the AOSP fast you better switch to yakju or even takju profile (which got more updates recently).

So what’s the trick there?
Basically the important is that the hardware is the same i.e. Galaxy Nexus “maguro”. You can confirm that by checking your fingerprint.

Once you sure about your hardware you can start the update procedure. You will not need to delete or loose any of your data or apps, however it is always a good idea to take backups as many things may happen(cat falling from the roof).

Note that we need the Android SDK as a prerequisite and make sure that “platform-tools” is in your windows path.

  1. download the newest factory image for takju from https://developers.google.com/android/nexus/images#takju
  2. extract the tgz in any directory you wish.
  3. there you will note bootloader-maguro-….img and radio-maguro-…..img (bootloader-maguro-primelc03.img and radio-maguro-i9250xxlh1.img)
  4. extract image-takju-XXXXXX.zip (image-takju-jop40c.zip)
  5. there you will note boot.img and system.img
  6. Put all those 4 noted files (bootloader-maguro-primelc03.img, radio-maguro-i9250xxlh1.img, boot.img, system.img) together and open command prompt in the this directory.
  7. boot device in fastboot/bootloader mode (execute “adb reboot bootloader” or holdpress volume up+down+power)
  8. execute
    fastboot flash bootloader bootloader-maguro-primelc03.img
    fastboot reboot-bootloader

    (wait to reboot)

    fastboot flash radio radio-maguro-i9250xxlh1.img
    fastboot reboot-bootloader

    (wait to reboot)

    fastboot flash boot boot.img
    fastboot flash system system.img
    fastboot reboot
  9. Congrats! you have now Android 4.2 with all your data safe :)

Yesterday Jean-Baptiste Quéru uploaded new the source of Android 4.2_r1 and also:
Factory Images “mantaray” for Nexus 10
Factory Images “occam” for Nexus 4
Factory Images “nakasi” for Nexus 7 (Wi-Fi)
Factory Images “nakasig” for Nexus 7 (GSM/HSPA+)
Factory Images “takju” for Galaxy Nexus “maguro” (GSM/HSPA+) (with Google Wallet)
Factory Images “yakju” for Galaxy Nexus “maguro” (GSM/HSPA+)

 

Along with that a few OTA updates appeared:

OTA for nakasi Nexus 7 (Wi-Fi) JOP40C from build JZO54K.094f6629

OTA for “takju” for Galaxy Nexus “maguro” (GSM/HSPA+) (with Google Wallet) JOP40C from build JZO54K.e587de13

 

Although if you use OTA variant to update it is not mandatory to backup, you should have in mind that it is always a good thing to do so. Instructions here : http://andwise.net/?p=299

Have fun :)

On Monday 29th Google has announced the new version of Android. We have also 2 new Nexus devices into the family – a new LG phone (Nexus 4) and a Samsung tablet (Nexus 10). Nexus 7 on the other hand has also a new version.

Android Jelly Bean 4.2 has a few interesting updates and quite handy cosmetic changes:

  • Photo Sphere Camera
  • Keyboard that recognizes gestures
  • Live in now (Google now) provides you with needed information wherever whenever
  • Daydream – very nice and practical lockscreen
  • Extra expandable notifications as well as the possibility to execute actions on them

There are some features that i like the most:

  • Wireless Display – get your phone on the big screen
  • Multiple users support on tablets – very handy feature for family and industry

There is some more improvements although not in the spotlight in my opinion quite important – security:

  • can get your apps scanned for harmful behaviour
  • informed for performing services that costs money
  • you have also more detailed view of the permissions required from app being installed outside of the Play Store

This is all very nice, however I haven’t seen the final code released yet and I am quite curious for many things in there as you might be.   So let’s wait and see :)

Here is a small tip if you need to use adb over wifi instead of usb.

You need to have initial usb-adb connection

1)  in commnad prompt type:

adb tcpip 7777

This will make adb listen on port 7777

2) chekc you device ip let say it is 192.168.1.100

3) then you can disconnect your device from usb and type:

adb connect 192.168.1.100:7777

voila :)

Recently a lot of people asked how to check if they have yakju or takju Galaxy Nexus. (Let me remind you again that these are just the names of the software profiles the different devices are actually toro(LTE) and maguro(GSM))

This tip is for all devices not only those Galaxy Nexuses.

You will need to have installed Android SDK.

  1. open command prompt
  2. Go to {Android Sdk folder}/platform-tools/
  3. type:
    adb shell getprop ro.build.fingerprint
  4. you will get smth like: “samsung/yakjuxw/maguro:4.0.4/IMM76K/I9250XWLD2:user/release-keys”

So this is your Android software build finger print. This particular device is Galaxy Nexus maguro with sw profile yakjuxw running android 4.0.4 build IMM76K, baseband: I9250XWLD2

Prerequisites:

2) fastboot.exe . you gen get this from here http://web.djodjo.org/?a=download:android:tools:win:bootloadertools

3) You have to unlock your device.To do that follow the instructions on http://htcdev.com/bootloader/

Procedure:

  • boot in bootloader (hold [vol down] + hold [power])
  • make sure you are in HBOOT mode (you should see “HBOOT” after the ROM information)
  • make sure the Bootloader is unlocked (you should see “UNLOCKED” on the top of the screen)
  • Select [FASTBOOT] using [volume up/down] to move and [power] to select (when you select it you should see FASTBOOT, instead of HBOOT)
  • connect the device to the pc via usb
  • check if the device is available by:
    fastboot devices
  • (note that if the device is not there and you are pretty sure that the usb is connected. you may have driver problems. in that case i would recommend to install PdaNet from http://junefabrics.com/android/download.php, just complete the first part of its installation. it will be enough to get the drivers working)
  • execute:
    fastboot flash recovery CWM.img (the image you've downloaded)
  • reboot you device, you can use  fastboot reboot also

Enjoy :)
