Hi all
I work for a OEM phone vendor. We have a prospective client that wants more RAM in a certain model Android Oreo 8.1 phone to prevent Android’s memory manager from closing the least recently used and RAM-hungriest apps. I propose to provide that by extending the swap partition (thus creating more swap memory) from the existing 0.5GB to 1.5 or better still 2.5GB. The storage is eMMC and there is enough storage (and fast storage) for what I want to do.
Most likely I need to change the partition structure and to do so I expect to have to root the phone. But I also need to be able to “unroot” the phone after. I cannot supply my client with rooted phones. But the other way to do it would be to somehow specify, a swap file (like Windows) on existing partitions. Is that possible? In this way, maybe root is not required? Don’t know.
Either way, additionally, I would like to do this from a command line in order to automate it – hopefully with an MDM/EMM; but that might be “dreaming”.
The volumes are not huge, and therefore, our overseas factory does not want to get involved.
Can anyone help me, please?
Cheers Mikhael

New Samsung Android phone is no longer updating contacts from Outlook.  
Prior to switching to a new phone, whenever I added a contact into my Outlook on my computer, the information would update in the contacts on my phone. Now that I have setup outlook on my phone, I cannot get the updates to show up when I add or change a contact in my Outlook on my desktop.  
I did notice that the new Outlook mobile version (which comes with my O365 subscription), does not have an actual contact section.  
I'm running Outlook 2016 on the desktop.
The phone is a Samsung Galaxy S7.
Help....

Hi,

I have an Android phone (Samsung Galaxy A3) which is connected to our network's WiFi.

There is a printer; (HP PageWide Pro 477dw), which is connected on our wired network.

Two apps have been installed on this phone;

1. Microsoft Outlook application
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.microsoft.office.outlook&hl=en_IE
2. HP Print Service Plugin
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.hp.android.printservice

Email has been synced with Microsoft Office 365 and Outlook 2016 on network connected PCs.

I have logged in successfully to the Microsoft Outlook application on the Android phone and can access, send and receive emails.

The problem is that there is no option to print emails or to highlight an attachment in email and click print.

When viewing pictures from gallery and web pages through Google on the Android phone, there is the option for print and printing works successfully.

Is there a way of printing emails from the Outlook application on Android phones or if not, then what other alternative would there be?

Thanks,
Robbie

The fastest way to make my phone more responsive seems to be to click on the box in the lower right corner of my android.

This brings up the "Recent Apps" list.

Swiping down on this list moves all the recent apps to the bottom, which allows you to click on the "Clear All" button.

This is essentially three steps.

I would like to find a way to make this process of clearing all the recent apps much more seamless and less hassle.

Assistance is greatly appreciated.

Hi,

I have a Samsung Note 9 phone.

My contacts are located in two different places; sim card and Gmail account.

There are different contacts in both of these places but would like all imported to Note 9 phone.

Also, there are some contacts which are the same in both places.

Is there a way of syncing together contacts in Gmail with contacts on this phone, where contacts were imported from sim card, without having duplication of contacts?

Thanks,
Robbie

I have a UIPageViewController which I am using for onboarding/walthrough screens but at the moment they only work with swipes. I added a button but I can't actually connect it and create an IBAction. I was able to programatically create a button that could print to console but I don't know how to get it to move the screens like swiping does.

class PageViewController: UIPageViewController, UIPageViewControllerDelegate, UIPageViewControllerDataSource {
    
    
    
    var pageControl = UIPageControl()
    
    // MARK: UIPageViewControllerDataSource
    
    
    
    lazy var orderedViewControllers: [UIViewController] = {
        return [self.newVc(viewController: "sbBlue"),
                self.newVc(viewController: "sbRed")]
    }()
    
    override func viewDidLoad() {
        super.viewDidLoad()
        self.dataSource = self
        self.delegate = self
        
        
        
        // This sets up the first view that will show up on our page control
        if let firstViewController = orderedViewControllers.first {
            setViewControllers([firstViewController],
                               direction: .forward,
                               animated: true,
                               completion: nil)
        }
        
        configurePageControl()
        
        // Do any additional setup after loading the view.
    }
    
    func configurePageControl() {
        // The total number of pages that are available is based on how many

Hi,

I am working on an iOS application (in nativescript) that needs to get and post some data to an API in the background each 5 minutes. Now it seems that iOS is closing my application so I took a look at the long running tasks section of https://docs.nativescript.org/core-concepts/ios-runtime/how-to/BackgroundExecution but I fail to see how I should configure an interval now.

Also while it works correctly on the simulator (not thinking about the interval) with the debug fetch command, I can't get it to work correctly on a real device.

On some Android Devices when a subscriber receives an SMS message parts of the plain text message get hyperlinked to other apps such as the dialer and Google Maps on other devices the same message does not get linked.  

I understand that different manufactures and even different models from the same manufacturer may include different versions of apps or even different apps for the same task.  What I can't find any where is how to control (if one can) this linking activity so that a numeric such "18-1234567" is not mapped to the dialer and the text "Loc: 123 smith St, Somewhere NY 100012" is mapped to the Google App Map or Waze.  

TIA for any insight you all might have..

We currently have 200 android tablet devices in a CLOUD only environment, no on prem.

What i would like to do is for the tablets to have restricted internet access, what is the best way to do this? Do not want any app installation or the use of a subscription such as openDNS where there is a cost associated to it. Cant use free as there are restriction on additional entries (may be wrong)

Anyway, would love help with this and what I can do to achieve this, as I said we are cloud based and using MerakiSM MDM to manage these. Step by Step would also be appreciated.

Thanks

Hi all
We have a number of Android tablets, some of which are misbehaving. I need to be able to save (or send) the system logs (and maybe dmesg as well, if poss) continuously to the removeable SD card, or alternately, to send the logs out to an FTP server. Can someone help me do this please? I will not be able to "root" the devices.
Thanks in advance

I have an application called Clipper installed  on my LG Smartphone. It syncs with my Samsung  tablet. It stores all clippings loosely and securely stores my hundreds of usernames  and passwords.

My crappy Smartphone is having serious problems,  so I am entertaining the thought of wiping it and Reset to Factory Settings.
Will the synced copy of Clipper on my tablet survive if I wipe the phone?

We currently have a business need where a rotation of 10 users needs to be contacted on a rotating but changing schedule. We need to be able to route call the users personal, business and home phones. Additionally, we'd like to be able to text or message users if necessary.

What program or application are you guys using for on-call or after hours support?

Support the build.gradle configured with compileSdkVersion 25. Should the dependencies be run in same version, ie 'com.android.support:appcompat-v7:25.4.0'  ?


In resource\XML, there is 28 - 25 to choose from. Does it mean the android apps will be test to run under api 25 - 28 ?

Can I say my Android app will be compiled in v25 and will be tested in platform 25 - 28 ?

Thx

I am new to Samsung phones. I have a new S8 (running Android Oreo) and I want to be sure my notes can be restored if needed.

When I go to Setting > Cloud and Accounts > Samsung Cloud it shows Samsung Notes have synced but if I go to Notes > Settings > Import Data > (and select from google drive or Samsung account) I get the message: "No Memo data in Samsung account"

I don't have many notes yet so I can delete them and restore them to test it but how do I access the data to restore it? When I go to import data why does it say No Memo data?

Thanks,

Hi everyone. I have an Android 7 device. It's not rooted. I need a file manager/utility that allows me to view the files & folders of the root directory; specifically the System and Data partitions. I don't need 'Write' permissions, just Read-Only. I want to copy some files. In other words, I don't want to root the device. I just need read-only access. I would prefer a file manager type app but I'm open to other methods.

I have tried Solid Explorer. It shows the System Partition but not the Data partition. Thanks.

Hi,

We have an Amazon Fire 7 tablet.

The plan is to use the Fire 7 tablet as a device to display information.

The problem is that when the tablet goes to sleep or runs out of power, the next time the tablet is turned on or woken up, the lock screen appears.

I would like to configure, with the use of an automation app, a function that will activate when the Fire 7 tablet displays its lock screen and automatically unlock by way of a swipe up action on the screen.

Is there an automation app that can do this, mainly a free app.

Thanks,
Robbie
