NZtechfreak: Is this via inbuilt Google Sync, or using Exchange? Whichever it is, try the other (HTCs Exchange sync is better than the inbuilt one anyways).


Don't actually know how to do that

"I have gotten google sync working in all Android 2.0 roms through exchange. It syncs mail, contacts, and calendar without the need for google apps. To get this working open email, and make a new exchange account and put in your gmail email address and password and then select manual setup. Select exchange account. For Domain/Username put in "/username@gmail.com" without quotes. The password should be filled in from the previous field. The Exchange server is "m.google.com" without quotes. Check both boxes below and hit next. Select the checking frequency(or push) and amount to synchronize. Select which options you want below, then select next. Put in an account name and display name, then hit done. If you have corporate calendar installed, then your calendar will synchronize and so will your contacts and email. Now you have push gmail, contacts, and calendar. Because exchange will only synchronize a month of emails, I also setup my gmail as an IMAP account so I still have access to my old emails. The android email app is not as good as the gmail app IMHO, but it is a temporary solution, and new emails seem to show up faster this way!"


EDIT: Just saw your confirmation Bendigo, thanks, and you're welcome :) Don't worry too much about memory - we're getting 2.2 within the year (from HTC officially), and much sooner than that on unofficial channels...

Actually, better than getting a stream of PMs here is a linklist with all my Android APKs for things not available in the market (LastFM [1.5.0 build, haven't collected an APK for the 1.5.1 build yet], Dolphin HD with youTube download inbuilt, and the Swype beta).

If people have other good APKs please PM me so I can host them.

Google Earth APK available at http://rapidshare.com/users/C6WJ85

Be aware, rather large install if you haven't got a Rooted Desire with apps2SD installed...

WOOT!! Is this the official HTC one? or does it require rooting our phones?

He doesn't actually say, but I don't think it'll have Sense (although it will probably come via devs well before HTC themselves release it). Will probably require Root, and actually constitute a reason good enough for me to Root my Desire...

JellyWeb: My phone got a bit rooted last night, no I didn't [intentionally] root it!



WARNING: A task killer (Advanced Task Killer) is responsible for this (that pesky little green droid in the top left above), and now I can't use my Desire at all (untill I do a factory reset, or root it).

Sense is totally corupted, all i see is the above, no matter how many times I 'force close'.

I haven't tried a button factory reset yet, but that should work.  If not I may be forced to root the phone.  Will that void my warrenty?

A warning to others:  Now I know why a lot of people say 'Dont use task killers' - they can really f#$k things up!

So, how many of you are using task killers, and do we need them?  I killed all tasks late last night cause the phone seemed a bit slow.  there were so many tasks that i didn't bother to be selective, just killed the lot, and look what's happened  :(

Hopefully the factory reset and restore from backup will mean this is just a small annoyance.



D'oh!! I should've taken your warning and stopped using a task killer. Having said that, how could you be certain a task killer did this?

Anyway, I had to do a hard reset as well. I messed up my contacts along the way - a good thing now I can sync things properly...

Lol, still doesn't work, must be something I'm doing wrong. Don't know if I should contact HTC or Google for support.
