Default The X10 Tips Thread (Version 1.5)

Thought i would start a thread where everyone could contribute. i will be adding the tips to this list as i receive them so get contributing
I have added a new 'Recommended Application/widget section and i am ASKING for your help! can anyone please leave a message on an app you would recommend, what it does and why thanks! It can be found at the bottom of this post.

Version Log
Version 1.0 - Added tip number 1.
Version 1.1 - Added tip number 2,3 and 4.
Version 1.2
- Added tip number 5 and 6.
Version 1.3 - Added tip number 7, 8 and 9. Also added an recommended app section.
Version 1.4 - Added some recommended applications and widgets.
Version 1.5 - Added images to make it look more visually better and easier to navigate.
Version 1.6 - Added the link on how to take screenshots

---

X10 Tips

1) Slide the menu up and if you long click a app you can place it as a shortcut without going through the longer method.

2) On the lock screen touch the top of the arc and you can drag it the other way for left and right hand users.

3) Hold the home button down (the middle one with the square above it) to get a pop up with shortcuts to recently opened apps. - Thanks to Airplaneman.
.
4) Download the HTC keyboard as this keyboard is much easier and better to use than the default android one and x10 one, you can get it from here -
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=654179

5) If you are familiar with sony ericssion phones, you would be familiar with this secret menu! Sony Ericsson did not keep their Flagship Phone Xperia X10, away form this Secret Menu.
Heres the Code to Unlock the Menu :
In the Lock Screen ( the one with the Swype animation! ) Press the buttons below, simultaneously and in succession,

Menu, Back, Back, Menu, Back, Menu, Menu, Back

6) To be boot into Safe Mode:

Turn off the device

Power on
During start up, hold down the menu button as soon as you feel the first vibrate
Continue to hold menu down until phone has completely booted

Once the phone has booted you will see "SAFE MODE" in the bottom left hand corner of the lock screen. - Thanks to Frankbonatelli.

7) Download Advanced Task Killer on the market place it's a great app and increases the amount of RAM you have and will speed up your phone.

8)
You can silent incoming call by tapping lower volume key and you can reject call by tapping power button. - Thanks to Busha.

9) Holding down on an empty space on the home screen will allow you to add a widget or shortcut.

10)
When you are in the call log to see who has called you etc, if you press the name of the person, you will have another screen before you get the option to actually call the person. However, if you actually press the green 'phone' icon next to the name of the person you want to call, it will dial it straight away. One less screen press.

11) How to take screenshots -
http://www.simplehelp.net/2009/07/21/how-to-take-screenshots-of-your-android-based-phone-from-windows/

Reccomended Applications and Widgets


1: ADW Launcher (Replacement for the default home screen, much more customizable.)


2: Gesture Search (Easy to search anything on your phone from contacts to applications.)


3: TweetCaster (If your into twitter imo this is the best application and visually is the best out the lot.)


4: K-9 Email (My personal favorite email application, but it really all goes down to personal preference.)


5: LED Light (If you ever need your X10 to be a torch this is the application to have although there are many alike.)


6: AIM (if you ever need to sign onto Facebook Chat you can use with this, there are a few on the market but i heard some hack into your profile?)


7: Handcent SMS (Nice notification pop-up, and very customizable my favorite text messaging application.)


8: BatteryTime Lite (An widget and app which can give detail battery times and percentage of your battery also a nice choice of widgets.)

As a little adjunct to King Dong the following is a thread for installing the HTC_IME keyboard but with a skin of your own design. Its pretty cool and pretty easy and Gimpsta the guy who runs it is supremely helpful when you have a prob as I did with my naff laptop.

Swype is free too, you just have to sign up for the beta to use it. Not sure whether they are still accepting testers or not at the moment.

Hey King Safe mode (6) is not correct.

To be boot into Safe Mode:

Turn off the device
Power on
During start up, hold down the menu button as soon as you feel the first vibrate
Continue to hold menu down until phone has completely booted

Once the phone has booted you will see "SAFE MODE" in the bottom left hand corner of the lock screen.

Go to the dialer and enter *#*#4636#*#* to find out what percentage of time your phone has been on without sleeping, from the battery history section.

Read that somewhere on the forums and sound advice. Unfortunately mines at 99% but, Im working on it, to improve the battery life .

Apps.......
Astro - File Manager. Can also be used to uninstall/install apps and kill tasks.
TaskPanel - Task Killer. Have tried a few different task killers but, this is my overall favorite .

For most SE phone there's another hidden feature. When you are in the dialer you can hold the * key and you will see a comma. What it does is "pause". Its mainly for dialing automated phone line's prompt. For example: if you dial 1888-123-4567,0 what it will do is first dial 1888-123-4567 and it will wait for the line to connect and then press the prompt "0". It's hard to explain in words so try it with any automated line you will know what it really does. Really useful if you use calling card or any automated phone service on a daily basis.

I never knew what the comma was for. Havent seen it on a phone for ages, with no physical buttons to press, I dont hold my finger on it long enough now lol. Thanks for the tip.

Widgets - switcherpro.

You can control 7 things with this and when you double click on it, it can take you to that menu in settings. I use it for wifi, BT, 3G, Airplane Mode, Brightness, battery life and GPS.

Try switchpro.

You would think for the market being Google, searching would be a lot better. I find a ton of thngs won't show if you ever get one letter off.

Here is how mine looks:

Why do my pics dissapear?

Tip:

(and this is good for Linux, OS X and Windows as well!)

If you want to block websites there's an easy way to do it if you have root access. I use this to block annoying ads. Not too many now since the X10 doesn't have Flash, but for the future this might be useful.

This is what I used:

- a rooted X10 (i used Universal Androot + Superuser Permission)
- computer with text editor
- Android app "File Manager"
- Android app "Root Explorer" (it's not free, maybe there's a free alternative?)

On your phone (not the SD Card) there is a file called hosts, this is the path: /system/etc/hosts

Using a file manager, make a copy of this file and paste it in your SD Card. Then, get the file on your computer and edit it with notepad or any text (as in .txt) editor.

This is what should be in the file:

127.0.0.1 localhost

and nothing else.

Now let's say you want to block adbrite.com, just add this under the first line:

127.0.0.1 adbrite.com

and repeat with whatever website you want to block. Some websites you'll have to block with and without "www".

When you're finished, copy the hosts file back to the SD card.

Using Root Explorer, copy it and paste it in its original folder - you might have to click on "Mount R/W". If you're afraid, just change the name of the original file if you want a backup, but it should not be necessary.

Once it's been copied, the website is now blocked! You can add as many websites as you want!

You don't need android market to download, just put it on your phone and you can install straight from your SD card.

As King Kong said just follow the instructions, you can use Bluetooth or USB to transfer the file, it's really easy.

By the way, there is a forum specifically for X10 Mini Pro, you might have better answers to your questions there (not that we don't want you here!).

Useful widget:

3G Watchdog

If your carrier doesn't have an app to show your account status (or if said app doesn't display data usage,) this is a must have.

You can set it up to alert you when you've reached a certain percentage of data usage within the month, custom set when your billing period starts, and you can set how much data your plan covers.

The widget comes in two sizes, 1x1 and 2x2

Some people do not know how to send someone in their phonebook a message when composing a message.

To do this, instead of typing a number into the 'To' section, just start typing their name and it should appear underneath, then just click the name of the person you want to send it to

Found something else that I think is worth putting in there...

Accessing sound recorder

Don't know if you'd seen this thread but I thought it was pretty cool to have a sound recorder!
