App: Carrier IQ Detector

A thing that’s not really needed since we for the most part don’t use CIQ in Europe, and that CIQ isn’t perhaps the “spyware” that people think it is either. But, do know that some people are worried even though there isn’t much to worry about really.

App of the day: AirDroid

This nifty little app was just spot on for me, it’s perhaps not a 100% perfect yet. But, it’s close to it. It just need to become a little more stable.

So, what is it? It’s basically an app that lets you connect to your phone via any browser, as long as you connected to wifi on the same network.

It’s pretty easy to get up and running, for me it took like 1 min. Just very easy. You can send texts and such from your computer this via, it sends via the phone. Just a VERY cleaver little thing. ME LIKE!

Force Android Market to update to newer version

Phone used: This was done on a EVO 3D with 2.3.4.

This kinda assumes that you have installed the market from a APK that just landed in your lap (somehow).

But, you want know to try to let google update it. And want to FORCE update it. This works at least for me.

Settings > Applications > Manage Applications >All > there you find Market.

First you Clear data and Clear cache then you click on Uninstall updates, just follow the guide. And  Now you should be back at the OLD version

Now you start Market and accept the ToS, it opens as the old one. Play around a little in it, at least a couple of minutes. Download something, and then exit from it via the Back-button. And wait a little and then start it again. This time it should start a little slower then normal and showing a Accept or Decline buttons. And you have forced a new version onto your phone! This way i got 3.3.11 since 3.3.12 doesn’t to be live in my parts of the world yet. If it doesn’t work the first time, just try again.
