    All questions regarding the phone, apps and tweaks can be posted here and discussed.

    Dear friends I have recently noticed a lot of miscellaneous threads coming up. I am concerned that we will dirty our own home, so this Thread will provide a common platform for all of us to ask questions on any topic related to A70, Android(of course).

    Are you referring to the screen that comes up when the phone starts up for the first time?
    If yes, then did you somehow modify the system files using terminal or a file manager?

    Just 4 days back got my first Android i.e. m A70. Very excited :)
    I have a question. The auto rotation of keyboard is lagging a little. I googled and found that if we set the calibration correct, then the auto rotation may improve. Please let me know how to do it? (OR) Is there any other way?

    Suggestions/help are well appreciated.

    Yes, Of course its possible.
    First you will have to partition 1GB of your SD card to ext3 partition. To do this follow the steps

    **Phone must be rooted and should have clockWorkMod Recovery(You can partition using many of the softwares for windows)

    1. Take backup of your SD card on computer.
    2. Boot into CWM recovery, goto storage and Mounts and select partition memory card.
    3. Enter the size of partition(1GB) and type(ext3). And partition the card.
    4. After partitioning the card all data will be lost and size of the SD card will be shown as 7GB.(Yes)
    5. Now restore your backup of SD card from PC.
    6. Goto Market and Install Link2SD.
    7. Mount your ext3 partition using Link2SD and move all the applications(i will suggest not to move system applications, Launchers and widgests) to ext3 partition.

    If you need clarification on any of the above step, please ask here.

    clockworkmod is an alternative recovery for andoid. it has got more usability and features than the stock recovery. clockworkmod recovery is one of the most commonly used recovery for flashing new roms and stuff.

    you can install clckworkmod recovery using the rom manager app from market.
    once clockworkmod recovery is installed, boot in to recovery like regular, and cwm recovery will start instead of the stock one.

    from there, u can follow the steps given above. and yes, you can use titanium backup as always.

    Well ClockWorkMod is Custom recovery. If you dont have an ClockworkMod recovery installed, still we can have some other solutions.

    1. Google for Partition-Manager utility which runs on Windows and supports EXT3 patition.
    2. Mount your SD card to PC, and using above utility Partition the SD card.
    3. After partitioning, install Link2SD from market.
    4. Mount Ext3 partition from Link2SD. And move the apps to SD card(ext3 partition.)

    I have kept factory reset as the last option:), as you have told it may not help much.
    under below mentioned situation I face issues:
    - Browsing using any browser.
    - Photo gallery.
    - Typing message.
    - Sometimes while picking up call also.

    It says application closed unexpectedly, try again.
    Waiting for your reply and solution for guys. Is there any way that i can get it to default settings?

    So did u try reinstalling the app??? If not, try that.

    Or install some other app like Go SMS or something and try that.

    @insane_subro: Nice effort from your side.
    Requested for sticky.

    One suggestion: Change topic name to something like " Post doubts here before creating thread' something like that.

    Nice thread idea.

    Let's leave root related queries and discussion for the All Things Root sub-forum, though.

    I'll stick this thread for now, after editing the OP just a bit. ;)

    I m using Eusius partition manager which created the EXT3 partition as described in the post but after it doesn't recognize the memory card.. .. .. .. ..

  23. rahules

    rahules Well-Known Member

    sorry but I donot use Go SMS , so Imignorant about where the backup settings are.
    But Im guessing that there's and option like GO SMS Services–>Settings Backup and Recovery
    or maybe open a conversation, press the men button of the phone and see options.

    also, did u format the entire sd card as ext3???
  24. Sentacy

    Sentacy Well-Known Member

    No .. i made a partition of 1 GB and formatted that into ext3.
    After that formatted remaining into FAT32 and applied changes.
    But phone is not able to read it. It is asking to format sd card but unable to do so.. .. .. .. ..

  25. rahules

    rahules Well-Known Member

    Well, what is the capacity of your SD card??

    What I would do is format the sd card back to fat32, then boot in to recovery and use CWM to partition it properly. That will most probably solve your problem. (Partitioning with CWM is pretty easy) Just go to Advanced options and select Partition sd card.

    Use the volume up/down buttons to move up and down, power button to select
