    Great power toys !

    Here’s my wish list:

    – Clear GTalk chat log.
    – Disable Camera sound.
    – Change the background of the clock widget (I really want the android clock showing on my desktop – but not sure if it’s configurable).
    – Configure the browser proxy
    – Change locale value.

    more to come 😉

    ้เยี่ยมเลยครับ ขอถามนิดนึงคือผมต้องลง Modified RC30 – full version ก่อนใช่ไหมครับ

    พอดีผมเข้าไปดูแล้วแต่ไม่เข้าใจว่าผมต้อง Modded recovery and boot images ก่อน update RC30 หรือเปล่า พอดีอ่านแล้วไม่ค่อยเข้าใจ รบกวนคุณเนยด้วยนะครับ

    when i press number 4, it says “operation Failed” anyone knows about it?

  12. nuuneoi

    December 3, 2008 at 11:37 pm

    You need modded RC30 to make it works. Look like you don’t have it yet.

    i have RC30 from updated. do i have to do Mod?
    thank you

  14. nuuneoi

    December 4, 2008 at 12:01 pm

    That’s not enough. You need modded one to make it work.

    However, if you already have original rc30, you can’t install modded one anymore. Look like you have to wait for new release of application or firmware. 🙁

  15. nuuneoi

    December 4, 2008 at 1:08 pm

    Actually I have no idead how to make it works on modded rc30 v1.2 since I’m still using v1.1

    The only clue I got from xda-developer member is you have to remove su password and it will works.

    Ummm… anybody here has experience on this? Please post the solution >_<

    The unlocked Dev1 phone already has su with no password; so remounting and reboot work fine out of the box.

    But it says “bad version” when I try to check or change the auto rotation.
    Do Dev1 phones need the patches that G1 phones need to enable rotation?
    Or something else?

  19. nuuneoi

    December 17, 2008 at 6:08 pm

    Look like files in G1 and Dev Phone are different. Could you please send me [b]/system/framework/framework.odex[/b] file to neon (ad) droidsans.com? I will check it.

    Ok, my stupid is contantly horizontal, no matter if the keyboard is closed or not. I downloaded this software hoping it would repair this problem and override a sensor or something that is screwed up. I get the following:
    Checking for versin…Good version
    Current Status: Disable
    Trying to enable auto rotation
    Current Status: Disable
    Please reboot your phone…

    Every time I try and enable it reads “Operation Failed” please help with this. Thanks!

    Hi,

    You have to flash modded firmware RC30 first. If you are using stock RC30, you have to downgrade your phone to RC29 using instruction [url=http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=442480]here[/url]. And then flash your phone with modded firmware RC30.

    A bit complicated, right? However, this’s only way to make DroidSans Tweak Tools work on your stock RC30 phone.

    Hope your problem has been fixed soon.

    I don’t have ADP1 phone with me right now so I don’t know how to make it works with.

    Could you upload [b]/system/framework/framework.odex[/b] file somewhere and provide ma a link please? I need that file to make DroidSans Tweak Tools for ADP1.

    Thanks

    been waiting for the dutch release of g1 and my phone comes in next week.

    do i have the downgrade the firmware to use this app?

  36. nuuneoi

    February 13, 2009 at 6:38 pm

    I’m not sure about firmware on Dutch version. But the thing that you have to do before use this tool is to hack you phone.

    I recently updated from RC29 to RC33 and I re-downloaded this app and it doesn’t work anymore. I can’t enable rotate, the only thing I can do is disable and reboot. Does anyone know of a solution? I have root access of course…

  38. enrly

    March 7, 2009 at 12:19 am

    I had to get a new g1 because I broke my other one. as I am reinstalling all my apps i cannot seem to find tweak tools on the market… when I search droidsans all that it finds is the tweak tools lite and the virtual keyboard. Did you pull this app from the market? Do you have it anywhere on here where I can just download it?

  39. singha

    March 18, 2009 at 2:26 pm

    I have the ADP1 phone and i recently installed the official ADP1.1 firmware on it. This app doesn’t seem to work on firmware 1.1, it just says bad version.

    Do I have to do anything special to get it to work?

  40. singha

    April 4, 2009 at 9:27 am

    No replies yet! And I thought I had read good things about the author.
    Has anyone been able to install this after putting the official 1.1 firmware on the ADP1?

  41. nuuneoi

    April 5, 2009 at 8:23 pm

    I fixed it for ADP1.1 already. However, let me check about it once more since I don’t have ADP 1.1 phone in my hand to test.

  42. singha

    April 9, 2009 at 11:49 am

    Thanks for the reply. I tried uninstalling and re-installing the TweakTools app but it still says “bad version”. Is there anything I can do to debug and give you more information?

    May 7, 2009 at 9:20 pm

    I have the same problem.. If I open just a little bit, it goes to portrait mode. But it’s not easy to use like that. I just want to use Cupcake (ADP1.5) with DroidSans Tweak Tools.

    Did you resolve your problem ?
