07:47 BurlyOaf Hi All
07:49 BurlyOaf Ive recently gotten a motoactv (8GB) and have put on dproldan's latest rom on it (very cool :))
07:49 dproldan good
07:50 BurlyOaf but i and another guy at work who also has a motoactv, are wondering if theres an easy / better way to get notification from our phones to the motoactv, besides just calls and txt from the motoactv app..?
07:52 dproldan You can use an app called "NotifyMyAndroid"
07:52 dproldan the motoactv will need to be conected with wifi or bluetooth
07:54 BurlyOaf i had looked at notify my android, but from what i understand it wont pass data via bluetooth so must be wifi tethered to the phone when not near an ap?
07:55 dproldan I havem't tried in a while,  but I think that it work with bluetooth tethering to a phone
07:57 BurlyOaf cool, ill give it a shot then thanks
11:32 zobi8225 hi
11:32 zobi8225 i got a question
11:32 zobi8225 yesterday i try to root my motocatv , but i got problems
11:33 zobi8225 but i am not sure it come from my computer or a mistake
11:33 zobi8225 i am on arch linux and i just instal abd and fastboot
11:34 zobi8225 and when i plug my watch abd and fastbook don't recogize it ...
11:34 zobi8225 i don't install java or the official android SDK
11:35 zobi8225 do you think it is normal ?
11:35 zobi8225 (sorry for my bad english)
11:37 zobi8225 And do you think i can root it without the android sdk ?
11:39 zobi8225 or do you think i need special motorola driver for linux ?
14:57 dproldan joined #motoactv
16:46 dproldan zobi8225: in linux you have to modify some files to recognize the usb for fastboot and adb
16:47 dproldan something like this
16:47 dproldan but using the motorola ids

18:59 dproldan No idea where that problem came from  8:|
19:10 Atarii yea it's strange

20:46 zobi8225 hi CEnnis91
20:46 CEnnis91 im guessing you saw source was updated for the kernel right?
20:47 dproldan yes,  i mentioned it here a few weeks ago
20:47 CEnnis91 yea i kept missing you
20:47 CEnnis91 do we have people trying to play with it
20:48 dproldan looks like:  http://sourceforge.net/motorola/motoac​tv/discussion/general/thread/f27d345a/
20:50 Atarii dproldan i've fixed the issue
20:50 Atarii it's a permission problem
20:50 dproldan the settings issue?
20:50 Atarii yea
20:50 dproldan nice
20:51 Atarii data partition is set to 660 for some reason
20:51 Atarii setting it to the correct 644 fixes it
20:51 dproldan ouch
20:51 CEnnis91 dproldan: ive been busy adding localization to android recovery
20:52 CEnnis91 wtf 660?
20:52 Atarii exactly lol
20:52 dproldan how's that possible
20:53 Atarii -rw-rw----
20:53 dproldan I don't think I changed anyything in the ram disk...
20:53 Atarii did you change preinstall/boot at all?
20:54 dproldan preinstall yes,  added several apks
20:54 dproldan boot,  I don't think
20:59 dproldan nice find anyway,  maybe it solves some more problems
21:00 zobi8225 i got the wifi !
21:00 dproldan good!
21:02 Atarii there are minor difference in the RAMDisk
21:03 Atarii nothing i can see that would cause that though
21:09 dproldan there are changes like that,  that make no sense,  everywhere
21:18 Atarii hmm
21:18 Atarii well i just checked against my SGS3 and the permissions are similar for the settings.db
21:18 Atarii already the databases folder has different settings
21:19 Atarii and it did save keyboard preferences on reboot, after i changed the permission
21:19 Atarii strange
21:21 dproldan one guy said in the thread that his changes stayed after he wiped everything and started from the beginning
21:21 Atarii ill try that
21:23 dproldan zobi8225: everything ok?
21:27 Atarii lol no reply  :s
21:27 dproldan too busy with the toy  :-p
21:28 Atarii heh yes
21:29 zobi8225 dproldan: nop
21:29 zobi8225 when i want sync it say me "can t etablish a relaiable data connection to server"
21:30 zobi8225 i do it from talk
21:30 Atarii how did you enable wifi?
21:31 zobi8225 from zeam laucher -> music button -> setting
21:31 dproldan do you see the wifi icon in the status bar?
21:31 zobi8225 yea
21:32 zobi8225 i am connected
21:32 Atarii did you do "Wireless" or "WIreless & network settings" option?
21:32 Atarii oh ok
21:32 zobi8225 on the web, i can surf
21:32 dproldan yes,  i see,  talk gives a different error when it's not connected
21:33 dproldan lol,  I can't conect now akso
21:33 dproldan also
21:33 zobi8225 so it is a google problems i think...
21:33 dproldan yes.
21:34 dproldan it had to happen when you're setting the MA...
21:34 zobi8225 yeah...
21:34 zobi8225 but it is realy cool
21:34 zobi8225 tomorow it will work
21:34 zobi8225 and it is fabulus
21:36 dproldan not perfect by any means,  but it's nice
21:37 Atarii wiping userdata didn't fix it for me :(
21:43 zobi8225 dproldan: google play work for you ?
21:43 zobi8225 you can connect now ?
22:04 dproldan started working right now
22:04 dproldan the wifi icon changes to from white to green when connected to google services
22:05 dproldan google play still doesn't load
22:11 zobi8225 ok...
22:12 zobi8225 on my wifi setting , it is said to me i am connected,
22:12 zobi8225 but i don t have the wifi icon a the top of the screen
22:12 zobi8225 what does it mean ?
22:13 dproldan the wifi setting doesn't work very well,  I'm afraid and sometimes the wifi icon takes a moment to appear
22:13 dproldan sometimes,  you cannot turn it off from there
22:13 dproldan most people put a power widget in zeam launcher
22:14 dproldan so you can turn it on/off from there
22:15 zobi8225 ok
22:15 zobi8225 it fucking works !
22:25 zobi8225 thank you so much.
22:25 zobi8225 search app in google apps doen't work ?
22:25 zobi8225 so i have to install stuff by apk ?
22:25 dproldan nope,  search doesn't work anywhere
22:26 zobi8225 ok
22:26 dproldan there's a special app for searching the market
22:26 zobi8225 realy ?
22:26 zobi8225 because, when i try to search something
22:26 zobi8225 it crash the google play
22:27 dproldan http://forum.xda-developers.com/sho​wthread.php?p=24268945#post24268945
22:29 Atarii yea that app is good
22:31 dproldan I install them from the web or browse "my apps" in the play app
22:34 dproldan try "gps test" by charcroft,   looks superb on the MA screen
22:36 dproldan it has a really nice interface where you can expand most views,  looks like it was made with the MA in mind
22:37 Atarii I'll try that out, thanks :)
22:43 Atarii dproldan do you know how to get a settings icon in the zeam applications list?
22:44 dproldan nope,  haven't looked at that
22:44 dproldan it's in the menu of zeam
22:44 zobi8225 everythings works
22:44 zobi8225 it is so cool
22:44 dproldan I have a CM7 Settings.apk that shows an icon in the app list
22:44 zobi8225 i can change my squeezbox radio with my moto
22:45 zobi8225 i am feeling so geek !!!
22:45 Atarii ah right ok thanks
22:45 dproldan and can be installed,  I could take a look and see what's the difference
22:45 Atarii just noticed that RunKeeperACTV ROM has a settings icon in the applications list, so didn't know where that came from
22:47 zobi8225 is it possible to install Runkeeper app on DPRom ?
22:48 Atarii yes install the one from here:
22:48 Atarii https://sites.google.com/site/​t2k269group/home/runkeeperactv
22:48 Atarii the RunKeeperMOD link
22:48 zobi8225 Atarii: ok
22:59 Atarii ok i was being really dumb about the keyboard thing i think
22:59 Atarii what happended was i moved to phone
22:59 Atarii then updated it
22:59 Atarii and didn't move to phone again
22:59 Atarii :@
23:00 dproldan oh, same here
23:00 Atarii what a waste of time time lol
23:00 dproldan i though it didn't allow you to select it when it's not in the pphone memory

23:33 Atarii ah yes
23:33 Atarii how did you find the intents for the app?
23:33 dproldan they're in AndroidManifest.xml
23:34 Atarii ah
23:34 Atarii maybe adding that launcher permission will enable the icon
23:34 Atarii same as with Settings.apk
23:34 dproldan yes,  it did
23:34 dproldan I have an icon now,  but it's a generic one
23:34 Atarii ah ok

23:37 dproldan yep,  trying now

23:39 Atarii something like that
23:39 dproldan ok,  let's try that icon
23:45 Atarii what key do you use to resign with btw?
23:46 dproldan the problem is I can't remember where I got it from,  I think it's some test key for CM or something like that
23:46 Atarii ah haha ok
23:46 dproldan probably a big security fault on my part  :-(
23:46 Atarii ill search the threads
23:47 dproldan I made a script to resign all the system apps
23:47 dproldan if you have a good idea about the key,  just let me know
23:49 dproldan wnat me to send them to you?
23:49 dproldan the certificate and the key I mean
23:50 Atarii I think it's the AOSP platform key
23:50 Atarii oh, yes please :)
23:54 dproldan these are the keys:  https://docs.google.com/open?i​d=0BxTLcy78OveNZkU5WFBfY3hLZXM

23:58 Atarii did you add one?
23:58 dproldan i mean there's only a generic icon
23:58 dproldan nothing related to sleep
23:59 dproldan maybe in framework-res or in workout.apk
23:59 Atarii you mean in res/drawable-ldpi there's no icon?
