Beta 13: MoDaCo.SWITCH HTC One support topic

Recommended Posts

With a little more digging I just found that there's a file called 'appwidgets.xml' in the same folder as the wallpaper which I'm willing to bet is the source of our widget troubles also...

Yep, looks to be, could be that the position and config of the widgets is set here for both launchers and they are each getting their knickers in a twist as per my post above.

So wallpaper_info.xml in the aforementioned directory is definitely the wallpaper storage... appwidgets.xml looks like it could be what we're looking for also. Checking now...

Ciao Viskas! It's the WWE ROM (at least in Sense), so it should work. You can use MoreLocale 2 - to manually set a language.

P

thank you! I have italian in the google edition, just a few languages in the sense. maybe it's because I don't have a sim inside.

at the moment, no issue at all, everything works fine.

would you like to keep the google edition stock or will you add some "benefit"?

t9 dialer would be great. I know it's included in android 4.3. but in the meantime it would be helpful!

great job as usual, you're the one!

I have created an experimental Switcher app update for experts to try out. :) This adds siloing of wallpaper and widget settings to each ROM.

To install, download the APK here - http://content.modaco.net/dropzone/FlipSwitch.apk - then from a command line do the following:

  • adb reboot recovery
  • adb shell mount /system
  • adb push FlipSwitch.apk /system/SWITCH/gpe/app/
  • adb push FlipSwitch.apk /system/SWITCH/sense/app/
  • adb shell chmod 644 /system/SWITCH/gpe/app/*
  • adb shell chmod 644 /system/SWITCH/sense/app/*
  • adb reboot

You'll need a switch from / to each ROM to establish the databases. I've given it a quick test here for both widgets and wallpapers and all seems well, it would be handy if a S-ON user could also test.

:)

Reinstalled Switch and booted to Beta 4. Had less errors on my phone. Think I'll wait for Beta 6. Will you implement the wallpaper and widget fix in Beta 6? Everything else is going well. Smooth performance.

First feedback after a fresh install:

Beta 1 flashed - Beta 5 flashed after with fast boot unticked

Wifi connected and bluetooth without problem

Switched several times both versions (Sense => GE => Sense => GE - Sense)

All Apps restore with TB.

Flash Switch Su because I have all times a request for root after to coming back to Sense

My 1st Gmail account is on both version.

The battery is drain faster after a lot of reboots and it's logical

Provided it works for everyone else, yes. :)

Hurrah! I will merge this into Beta 6 tomorrow morning (no other changes anticipated at this stage), I would like to get an OK from a S-ON user on the tool though.

Wish I could do the ADB shell fix but I'm on Ubuntu and for some reason it isn't recognizing my phone :(

If you reinstall B1 / B5 it will also fix.

Stock Sense on Sense and Nova on GE

So, you could...

- in GPe, via the settings, apps menu disable the stock launcher (this will fix the GPe popup)

- reboot to recovery and move the Nova APK from /data/app to /system/SWITCH/gpe/app (and extract from the APK (zip) any included .so libs to /system/SWITCH/gpe/lib) (this will fix the Sense popup)

That would do it. :)

I'm also having the widget issue. I'm using the stock Sense launcher and Nova.

The fix is posted above or will be in the next Beta release tomorrow.

One thing I will do for Beta 6 is make it possible to see which release you are on from the settings - about menu. I'm also going to add auto over-the-air updating for the Switcher app.

Works fine for me in ubuntu.

Have you connected via adb with a ROM loaded first?
