For those annoyed with the battery saver notification in the drop down, long press and force stop....it will go away until phone goes into battery saver mode....when that happens just repeat and SHAZAAM!!! gone again. I'm loving this!

This opens up a diagnosis setting. Lots of options to test. Comes in handy when troubleshooting.

Caution must be observed however, as you have the ability to select a factory reset in this mode.

I know he mentioned how to take a screenshot in the video, but for those who are wondering.... holding the power button and clicking the Home button makes for a slightly quicker screenshot. Does everything else the same though.

Exclamation Turn it down! HTC One volume too loud? - app fix

Hi guys,

I've read a few posts with people mentioning that the One can be on occasion, just a little TOO LOUD (even at minimum volume). A brief search of the Interwebs and I came across this 'fix', which I have used on my One and it works fine...

It's a free app that you can turn on/off as you wish, to further control the volume down to an acceptable level. Please note that sometimes you have to flick the EQ ON/OFF buttons a couple of times to get it to work well, but basically turn the VOLUME down to 1 and then adjust further with the EQ if required. Hope that helps...

Default Problems with HTC Transfer tool? Possible fix.

This might belong in tips and tricks, but I wasn't sure. Anyway, I had a heck of a time trying to start a wifi hotspot on my One for the HTC transfer tool. It just wouldn't work no matter what I tried so I gave up for a while. Then while messing around with the one I decided to update the PRL and profile. Guess what, HTC Transfer works like a charm now, so if you are having issues, update everything and give it another go. BTW my old phone is an Evo 4G.

Just a word of caution, if you hide apps in your app drawer, they will also be hidden from your home screen...I found this out the hard way after spending about an hour tweaking my home screens then going into the app drawer and hiding the apps that were on the home screen ( hey who needs to clutter up the app drawer with apps that are already easily accessible right? lol)

Default Gmail "show picture" Link greyed out

Lately whenever I bring up an email with pictures the "show pictures" link is always greyed out. Also greyed out in the HTC ONe native email app. This was working earlier but I must have done something to disable it. Can't find what I've done though. Anyone have any ideas?

Found a workaround for anyone else having this problem.

Bring up the email with the greyed out link
Click on the address field at the top (To
Then click on the Show Pictures and it will show the pictures
Click Always show and the pictures should now always show from this address

Don't know why this works but it does.

This is a big thing for be because I usually like to take pictures of things spontaneous stuff like fights. But any way even if your phone is password protected you can take a picture with out unlocking the phone by holding the camera app and tossing it into the middle of the screen.

Default HTC ONE STOCK ANDROID Recovery

I've booted into the stock ANDROID recovery before,but now,I can't remember the button combination to do so.

I get as far as POWER+VOLUME DOWN,which brings up the menu.I select RECOVERY>then press the POWER button,which brings me to the TRIANGLE SCREEN.

How do I proceed to the recovery screen from here?

THX!

Default Adding unknown numbers to block list

I didn't read the manual when I got my phone and couldn't figure out how to add randoms to the blocked list. Surprisingly didn't find anything on the webz saying how to natively do it and I didn't want to install an app so I downloaded the manual and read it. Turns out it's pretty simple.

To add random unknown phone numbers to the block list, go to your call history screen. From here long press the phone number and a menu pops up. Choose block contact. That's it.

If you want to see who all is being blocked, click the menu hamburger on the top right of the screen to get to your blocked list and it's screens.

Hope this helps someone else out as well.

If you have set another page as your home screen it can take a while to scroll all the way back through to the top of the blinkfeed page but if you press/hold/release in the status bar (between the notification area and the clock) you will be taken straight back to the top of the page. This also works in the app drawer.

You can also use the volume rocker keys to dismiss alarms, great when you have an alarm going off in your pocket.

I noticed this morning that the top left edge of the Beats logo was starting to wear off. I've accelerated the wear by gentle application of my finger nail. It's taken about 15 minutes to remove the logo completely with no adverse affect on the case. The red Beats came off quite easily, the silver Audio was a bit more stubborn.

The back looks much better now.

Default Careful when removing skin protectors.

Bought a thin tpu case to try out. It was a tight fit and kept sticking to my Xtreme skin. I bought ten sets of skins so I decided just to remove it so I could use the case. Xtreme skins are awesome products and the adhesive was incredibly strong. While peeling it off it pulled part of the T insert in the HTC logo. I was able to save it and press it back in but it's probably going to fall out again. This is just a heads up, use caution when removing skins around the logo.
