How to make more battery life on ASUS Zenfones 4/4.5/5/6

 

I know why you are here and reading my post, are you frustrated because of bad battery life of your Zenfones?

No worries. My Bro bought Zenfone 5 and he is very impressed by that phone, obviously me too, the performance and the premium look is really great.  But after couple of days he is not happy with the battery life, he tried with many battery saving options which is provided by ASUS, unfortunately that was not so helpful so he sold his phone through OLX.

Let me help you guys to extend your battery life a bit. So you can use your phone as a daily driver.

Step 1 . Enable  “Developer options”  which will give you more possibilities to manage your phone.

             To Enable  :-  Go to Settings –> About Phone –> on “Build number”  Tap 5 times continuously”.

             To Verify  :- Go back to Settings and you should see “Developer Options”.

image The build number may vary on your phone.

Step 2 . Go to Settings –> Developer options (make sure its “On”) –> Background Process limit  and set to 2 or 1 as you wish.

image            

Step 3. Turn On the Smart Saving function in Ultra Saving Mode.

Step 4. Disable Auto Brightness and keep it low as much you feel that you can manage.

that’s all. Enjoy!

feel free to comment., Glad to help…,

if you are looking for even more battery life(rooting with custom rom). stay tune.

  • Reboot device
  • Install ExchangeBypass-x.x.apk
  • Enable module in Xposed

Fix Android Kit Kat 4.4.2 SD card access issue

 

I was facing problem with Kit Kat 4.4.2 on my Galaxy note , unable to play the movies continuously which is stored in SD-card  and access related issues so I felt the Kit Kat not stable I did not know that it is due to the permission then when I found the fix I really started to love this Kit Kat.  my favorite is SlimKat (very stable).

 

I would recommend to install the below patch who ever facing the problem. Enjoy!

I really appreciate the developer.

Kit Kat External SD Card Patch   (click to install )

 

imageimage

 

Description

“Curse you, Google! Your KitKat update broke my SD card!”
Poke around the Android section of the Internet and you’ll hear something similar. Users are in an uproar because they updated their phone to Android 4.4 KitKat, and now the SD card support has changed. Apps no longer work, folks have problems with cameras and music players, and while everyone else is saying “Oh, yeah. That’s how it works now,” nobody warned them in advance before they grabbed that update. (By Jerry Hildenbrand posted on Android Central March 12, 2014)
If the above description suits your situation, this patch is born to save you!
Google has modified the default permissions for the external SD Card on Android 4.4 KitKat, which directly caused many of your favorite third parity apps lose read/write access to external SD card and became useless.

Problem you may have for third party apps after the KitKat Update:
* File Manager app can no longer create, move or edit files or folders on external sdcard
* Camera, Music or Video app can no longer save files to external sdcard or edit your media file saved on ecternal storage
* Previous paid or free app/game data saved on sdcard can no longer work or be accessed
* WiFi syncing to SD card is blocked
* Move apps to sdcard is blocked
* many other problems
Here we are providing a FREE, SIMPLE, and Ads-free app which helps you magically restore all your previous access to external SD card. Once this patch in installed on your phone, the third party apps can run nornal as before.
Notice:
1. This app requires Root Access and must grant Superuser Permission to use. (If your device is not rooted, please Google your device model root method and apply.)
2. We cannot recommend or give you direct methods to root your device, since root method varies from devices.
3. Please make sure you are having problem of reading external SD card on KitKat, or this app cannot help you with anything
4. Please make sure you have an external SD card (removable storage) on your device, for example, Samsung S 4. If you are using Nexus, then you do not need to install this app.
5. As is generally the case with all root modifications, you need to take all risk by yourself.
6. File Expert, the powerful file manager, has updated to support most devices on KitKa. Please have a try.

7. This patch may not work on device which runs unofficial OS( By unofficial OS means OS not developed by Google or your device provider, since the unofficial OS has changed Android default settings)

8. This patch may not work on all the Android devices running on Android 4.4 KitKat. If it does not work please just uninstall. We are working on to support more devices.
If you do not understand or vague about what happened to your Android after update to KitKat, please look through the following info carefully.

How to unlock & edit secured PDFs

 

I know why you are here.., yes you failed many times when you tried to edit the secured PDFs.

No worries, here is the workaround to have the secured PDFs edited.

You can not unlock the file in this method , but you can generate an unlocked equivalent that can be edited and manipulated content.

1. Open the document that you wish to unlock in Adobe Acrobat Reader and click File and then Print. Next, in the printers list, select "Microsoft XPS Document Writer" and then click Print.

2. Open the newly printed XPS file that you have just created and simply repeat the printing process, only this time printing to PDF format.

All done!!!

Go Edit and Enjoy!

Please feel free share your experience if you got into any issues so that I can update my post.

Configure Live writer with 2-Step verification Gmail

 

Live Writer may require an app password from Google if it doesn't support 2-step verification. To generate one from Google try the following:

1. Go to www.google.com/accounts and click on Security.

2. Under 2-step verification section click on the "Settings" button.

3. Now under the "Application-specific passwords" section select "Manage application -specific passwords" (you might be required to enter your password again for security purposes).

4. Now just enter a descriptive name for the application you want to use the password for (in this case probably something like "Live Writer" and click the "Generate password" button.

5. Copy the newly generated password, then use it as your Google account password on Live Writer instead of your real password.

OTG features mostly on Any Android Device *

 

How to bring OTG feature on any android device of course  its based on hardware but many mobile phones not coming with OTG enabled by the stock roms but you can made them to be used on the same device by flashing the any advanced custom roms with root access.

* This is only for rooted device.

WARNING
-------------------
I will not be held responsible for any damage to your device. Do not use for a long time, you may risk burning the device chip/motherboard due to the voltage supply in host mode.

What is OTG ?

USB On-The-Go, often abbreviated USB OTG, is a specification that allows USB devices such as digital audio players or mobile phones to act as a host, allowing other USB devices like a USB flash drive, mouse, or keyboard to be attached to them."

What are the requirements?
-------------------------------------------
root (su binary) -  ( if you have root please ignore)
supporting kernel / kernel modules - (this application will tell you whether you have this or  not once installed)
USB OTG cable ( or direct card reader)

1. Install “USB OTG Checker” from Google Play.

    before try this please check this link for already confirmed list where stated for working devices.

    http://usbotghelper.wordpress.com/confirmed-devices/

    is this your device already there in the list wow! you are good to go.if not do not worry follow step 2.

2. Process is very simple just open the installed USB OTG Checker  and choose Check Device OS on USB OTG

which will tell you whether your device rom has the API or not if you get the green result yes you have it.go to step 3.

image  

3. Choose Check USB OTG Signal which will ask you to re plug the OTG cable to check signals

   if its tells green result yes you are good to go.

 

4. just exit USB OTG Helper connect your pen drive through OTG Cable into your device.

 

5. open ES File explorer (or any file explorer)  navigate to “/mnt” and look for “usbstorage”

   you should able to see your pen drive date over there.

 

Enjoy! the OTG

How to use ADB (Android Debug Bridge)

 

Android Debug Bridge (adb) is a versatile command line tool that lets you communicate with an emulator instance or connected Android-powered device. It is a client-server program that includes three components:

  • A client, which runs on your development machine. You can invoke a client from a shell by issuing an adb command. Other Android tools such as the ADT plugin and DDMS also create adb clients.
  • A server, which runs as a background process on your development machine. The server manages communication between the client and the adb daemon running on an emulator or device.
  • A daemon, which runs as a background process on each emulator or device instance.

You can find the adb tool in <sdk>/platform-tools/.

When you start an adb client, the client first checks whether there is an adb server process already running. If there isn't, it starts the server process. When the server starts, it binds to local TCP port 5037 and listens for commands sent from adb clients—all adb clients use port 5037 to communicate with the adb server.

The server then sets up connections to all running emulator/device instances. It locates emulator/device instances by scanning odd-numbered ports in the range 5555 to 5585, the range used by emulators/devices. Where the server finds an adb daemon, it sets up a connection to that port. Note that each emulator/device instance acquires a pair of sequential ports — an even-numbered port for console connections and an odd-numbered port for adb connections. For example:

Emulator 1, console: 5554
Emulator 1, adb: 5555
Emulator 2, console: 5556
Emulator 2, adb: 5557
and so on...

As shown, the emulator instance connected to adb on port 5555 is the same as the instance whose console listens on port 5554.

Once the server has set up connections to all emulator instances, you can use adb commands to access those instances. Because the server manages connections to emulator/device instances and handles commands from multiple adb clients, you can control any emulator/device instance from any client (or from a script).

Note: When you connect a device running Android 4.2.2 or higher to your computer, the system shows a dialog asking whether to accept an RSA key that allows debugging through this computer. This security mechanism protects user devices because it ensures that USB debugging and other adb commands cannot be executed unless you're able to unlock the device and acknowledge the dialog. This requires that you have adb version 1.0.31 (available with SDK Platform-tools r16.0.1 and higher) in order to debug on a device running Android 4.2.2 or higher.

Syntax


You can issue adb commands from a command line on your development machine or from a script. The usage is:

adb [-d|-e|-s <serialNumber>] <command>

If there's only one emulator running or only one device connected, the adb command is sent to that device by default. If multiple emulators are running and/or multiple devices are attached, you need to use the -d, -e, or -s option to specify the target device to which the command should be directed.

Commands





The table below lists all of the supported adb commands and explains their meaning and usage.

Table 1. Available adb commands

Category
Command
Description
Comments

Target Device
-d
Direct an adb command to the only attached USB device.
Returns an error if more than one USB device is attached.

-e
Direct an adb command to the only running emulator instance.
Returns an error if more than one emulator instance is running.

-s <serialNumber>
Direct an adb command a specific emulator/device instance, referred to by its adb-assigned serial number (such as "emulator-5556").
See Directing Commands to a Specific Emulator/Device Instance.

General
devices
Prints a list of all attached emulator/device instances.
See Querying for Emulator/Device Instances for more information.

help
Prints a list of supported adb commands.

version
Prints the adb version number.

Debug
logcat [option] [filter-specs]
Prints log data to the screen.

bugreport
Prints dumpsys, dumpstate, andlogcat data to the screen, for the purposes of bug reporting.

jdwp
Prints a list of available JDWP processes on a given device.
You can use the forward jdwp:<pid> port-forwarding specification to connect to a specific JDWP process. For example:
adb forward tcp:8000 jdwp:472
jdb -attach localhost:8000

Data
install <path-to-apk>
Pushes an Android application (specified as a full path to an .apk file) to an emulator/device.

pull <remote> <local>
Copies a specified file from an emulator/device instance to your development computer.

push <local> <remote>
Copies a specified file from your development computer to an emulator/device instance.

Ports and Networking
forward <local> <remote>
Forwards socket connections from a specified local port to a specified remote port on the emulator/device instance.
Port specifications can use these schemes:


  • tcp:<portnum>
  • local:<UNIX domain socket name>
  • dev:<character device name>
  • jdwp:<pid>

ppp <tty> [parm]...
Run PPP over USB.


  • <tty> — the tty for PPP stream. For exampledev:/dev/omap_csmi_ttyl.
  • [parm]... — zero or more PPP/PPPD options, such asdefaultroute, local,notty, etc.

Note that you should not automatically start a PPP connection.

Scripting
get-serialno
Prints the adb instance serial number string.
See Querying for Emulator/Device Instances for more information.

get-state
Prints the adb state of an emulator/device instance.

wait-for-device
Blocks execution until the device is online — that is, until the instance state is device.
You can prepend this command to other adb commands, in which case adb will wait until the emulator/device instance is connected before issuing the other commands. Here's an example:

adb wait-for-device shell getprop
Note that this command does not cause adb to wait until the entire system is fully booted. For that reason, you should not prepend it to other commands that require a fully booted system. As an example, the install requires the Android package manager, which is available only after the system is fully booted. A command such as
adb wait-for-device install <app>.apk
would issue the install command as soon as the emulator or device instance connected to the adb server, but before the Android system was fully booted, so it would result in an error.

Server
start-server
Checks whether the adb server process is running and starts it, if not.

kill-server
Terminates the adb server process.

Shell
shell
Starts a remote shell in the target emulator/device instance.
See Issuing Shell Commands for more information.

shell [shellCommand]
Issues a shell command in the target emulator/device instance and then exits the remote shell.

Querying for Emulator/Device Instances





Before issuing adb commands, it is helpful to know what emulator/device instances are connected to the adb server. You can generate a list of attached emulators/devices using the devices command:

adb devices

In response, adb prints this status information for each instance:


  • Serial number — A string created by adb to uniquely identify an emulator/device instance by its console port number. The format of the serial number is <type>-<consolePort>. Here's an example serial number: emulator-5554
  • State — The connection state of the instance may be one of the following:

    • offline — the instance is not connected to adb or is not responding.
    • device — the instance is now connected to the adb server. Note that this state does not imply that the Android system is fully booted and operational, since the instance connects to adb while the system is still booting. However, after boot-up, this is the normal operational state of an emulator/device instance.
    • no device — there is no emulator/device connected.

The output for each instance is formatted like this:

[serialNumber] [state]

Here's an example showing the devices command and its output:

adb devices
List of devices attached
emulator-5554  device
emulator-5556  device
emulator-5558  device

Directing Commands to a Specific Emulator/Device Instance





If multiple emulator/device instances are running, you must specify a target instance when issuing adb commands. To do so, use the -s option in the commands. The usage for the -s option is:

adb -s <serialNumber> <command> 

As shown, you specify the target instance for a command using its adb-assigned serial number. You can use the devicescommand to obtain the serial numbers of running emulator/device instances. For example:

adb -s emulator-5556 install helloWorld.apk

Note that, if you issue a command without specifying a target emulator/device instance while multiple devices are available, adb generates an error.

If you have multiple devices available (hardware or emulated), but only one is an emulator, simply use the -e option to send commands to the emulator. Likewise if there's multiple devices but only one hardware device attached, use the -doption to send commands to the hardware device.

Installing an Application





You can use adb to copy an application from your development computer and install it on an emulator/device instance. To do so, use the install command. With the command, you must specify the path to the .apk file that you want to install:

adb install <path_to_apk>

For more information about how to create an .apk file that you can install on an emulator/device instance, see Building and Running

Note that, if you are using the Eclipse IDE and have the ADT plugin installed, you do not need to use adb (or aapt) directly to install your application on the emulator/device. Instead, the ADT plugin handles the packaging and installation of the application for you.

Forwarding Ports





You can use the forward command to set up arbitrary port forwarding — forwarding of requests on a specific host port to a different port on an emulator/device instance. Here's how you would set up forwarding of host port 6100 to emulator/device port 7100:

adb forward tcp:6100 tcp:7100

You can also use adb to set up forwarding to named abstract UNIX domain sockets, as illustrated here:

adb forward tcp:6100 local:logd 

Copying Files to or from an Emulator/Device Instance





You can use the adb commands pull and push to copy files to and from an emulator/device instance. Unlike theinstall command, which only copies an APK file to a specific location, the pull and push commands let you copy arbitrary directories and files to any location in an emulator/device instance.

To copy a file or directory (and its sub-directories) from the emulator or device, use

adb pull <remote> <local>

To copy a file or directory (and its sub-directories) to the emulator or device, use

adb push <local> <remote>

In the commands, <local> and <remote> refer to the paths to the target files/directory on your development machine (local) and on the emulator/device instance (remote). For example:

adb push foo.txt /sdcard/foo.txt

Issuing Shell Commands





Adb provides a Unix shell that you can use to run a variety of commands on an emulator or connected device. The command binaries are stored in the file system of the emulator or device, at /system/bin/...

Two of the most common command tools are activity manager (am) and package manager (pm).

You can use the shell command to issue commands, with or without entering the adb remote shell on the emulator/device. To issue a single command without entering a remote shell, use the shell command like this:

adb [-d|-e|-s <serialNumber>] shell <shell_command>

Or enter a remote shell on an emulator/device like this:

adb [-d|-e|-s <serialNumber>] shell

When you are ready to exit the remote shell, press CTRL+D or type exit.

Using activity manager (am)

Within an adb shell, you can issue commands with the activity manager (am) tool to perform various system actions, such as start an activity, force-stop a process, broadcast an intent, modify the device screen properties, and more. While in a shell, the syntax is:

am <command>

You can also issue an activity manager command directly from adb without entering a remote shell. For example:

adb shell am start -a android.intent.action.VIEW

Examining sqlite3 databases from a remote shell

From an adb remote shell, you can use the sqlite3 command-line program to manage SQLite databases created by Android applications. The sqlite3 tool includes many useful commands, such as .dump to print out the contents of a table and .schema to print the SQL CREATE statement for an existing table. The tool also gives you the ability to execute SQLite commands on the fly.

To use sqlite3, enter a remote shell on the emulator instance, as described above, then invoke the tool using thesqlite3 command. Optionally, when invoking sqlite3 you can specify the full path to the database you want to explore. Emulator/device instances store SQLite3 databases in the folder /data/data/<package_name>/databases/.

Here's an example:

adb -s emulator-5554 shell
# sqlite3 /data/data/com.example.google.rss.rssexample/databases/rssitems.db
SQLite version 3.3.12
Enter ".help" for instructions
.... enter commands, then quit...
sqlite> .exit

Once you've invoked sqlite3, you can issue sqlite3 commands in the shell. To exit and return to the adb remote shell, use exit or CTRL+D.

Recording a device screen

The screenrecord command is a shell utility for recording the display of devices running Android 4.4 (API level 19) and higher. The utility records screen activity to an MPEG-4 file, which you can then download and use as part of a video presentation. This utility is useful for developers who want to create promotional or training videos without using a separate recording device.

To use the screenrecord from the command line, type the following:

$ adb shell screenrecord /sdcard/demo.mp4

Stop the screen recording by pressing Ctrl-C, otherwise the recording stops automatically at three minutes or the time limit set by --time-limit.

Here's an example recording session, using the adb shell to record the video and the pull command to download the file from the device:

$ adb shell
shell@ $ screenrecord --verbose /sdcard/demo.mp4
(press Ctrl-C to stop)
shell@ $ exit
$ adb pull /sdcard/demo.mp4

The screenrecord utility can record at any supported resolution and bit rate you request, while retaining the aspect ratio of the device display. The utility records at the native display resolution and orientation by default, with a maximum length of three minutes.

There are some known limitations of the screenrecord utility that you should be aware of when using it:


  • Some devices may not be able to record at their native display resolution. If you encounter problems with screen recording, try using a lower screen resolution.
  • Rotation of the screen during recording is not supported. If the screen does rotate during recording, some of the screen is cut off in the recording.
  • Audio is not recorded with the video file.

Table 4. screenrecord options

Options
Description

--help
Displays a usage summary.

--size <WIDTHxHEIGHT>
Sets the video size, for example: 1280x720. The default value is the device's main display resolution (if supported), 1280x720 if not. For best results, use a size supported by your device's Advanced Video Coding (AVC) encoder.

--bit-rate <RATE>

--time-limit <TIME>
Sets the maximum recording time, in seconds. The default and maximum value is 180 (3 minutes).

--rotate
Rotates the output 90 degrees. This feature is experimental.

--verbose
Displays log information on command line screen. If you do not set this option, the utility does not display any information while running.

UI/Application Exerciser Monkey

The Monkey is a program that runs on your emulator or device and generates pseudo-random streams of user events such as clicks, touches, or gestures, as well as a number of system-level events. You can use the Monkey to stress-test applications that you are developing, in a random yet repeatable manner.

The simplest way to use the monkey is with the following command, which launches your application and sends 500 pseudo-random events to it.

adb shell monkey -v -p your.package.name 500

For more information about command options for Monkey, see the complete UI/Application Exerciser Monkeydocumentation page.

Other shell commands

For a list of all the available shell programs, use the following command:

adb shell ls /system/bin

Help is available for most of the commands.

Table 5 lists some of the more common adb shell commands.

The Dalvik Debug Monitor Server (DDMS) tool offers integrated debug environment that you may find easier to use.

dumpstate
Dumps state to a file.

logcat [option]... [filter-spec]...
Enables system and app logging and prints output to the screen.

dmesg
Prints kernel debugging messages to the screen.

start
Starts (restarts) an emulator/device instance.

stop
Stops execution of an emulator/device instance.


Enabling logcat logging





The Android logging system provides a mechanism for collecting and viewing system debug output. Logs from various applications and portions of the system are collected in a series of circular buffers, which then can be viewed and filtered by the logcat command.

You can use the logcat command to view and follow the contents of the system's log buffers. The general usage is:

[adb] logcat [option] ... [filter-spec] ...

You can use the logcat command from your development computer or from a remote adb shell in an emulator/device instance. To view log output in your development computer, you use

adb logcat

and from a remote adb shell you use

logcat

See Reading and Writing Logs for complete information about logcat commend options and filter specifications.

Stopping the adb server





In some cases, you might need to terminate the adb server process and then restart it. For example, if adb does not respond to a command, you can terminate the server and restart it and that may resolve the problem.

To stop the adb server, use the kill-server command. You can then restart the server by issuing any other adb command.

Wireless usage





adb is usually used over USB. However, it is also possible to use over Wi-Fi, as described here.


  1. Connect Android device and adb host computer to a common Wi-Fi network accessible to both. We have found that not all access points are suitable; you may need to use an access point whose firewall is configured properly to support adb.
  2. Connect the device with USB cable to host.
  3. Make sure adb is running in USB mode on host.
    $ adb usb
    restarting in USB mode

  4. Connect to the device over USB.
    $ adb devices
    List of devices attached
    ######## device

  5. Restart host adb in tcpip mode.
    $ adb tcpip 5555
    restarting in TCP mode port: 5555

  6. Find out the IP address of the Android device: Settings -> About tablet -> Status -> IP address. Remember the IP address, of the form #.#.#.#.
  7. Connect adb host to device:
    $ adb connect #.#.#.#
    connected to #.#.#.#:5555

  8. Remove USB cable from device, and confirm you can still access device:
    $ adb devices
    List of devices attached
    #.#.#.#:5555 device

You're now good to go!

If the adb connection is ever lost:


  1. Make sure that your host is still connected to the same Wi-Fi network your Android device is.
  2. Reconnect by executing the "adb connect" step again.
  3. Or if that doesn't work, reset your adb host:
    adb kill-server
    and then start over from the beginning.
