This is a compass calibration problem, go to Photaf picture taking mode and before taking the first picture, wave your phone in a figure 8 pattern to reset the magnetometer in your device.
● Cannot create file, make sure to use a valid file name
Usually, this is a file creation error, due to SD card either not available, full or corrupted.

Try the following:
- Use a different unique name

Special kudos go to the game creators for an amazing game, which I haven't played much of yet (as you can tell by my incompetence at it)

HDMwIn Gingerbread Alpha Build

You read the title correctly.

HDMwIn now supports HDMI out on gingersense. Congrats to TeamWin for this fine release. I have been waiting for HDMI out support for a while.

(Sense only)

We'll be porting the whole re-architecture over to CM7. Not gonna leave AOSP out to dry!

This new kernel is a complete rewrite of the app. The functionality is now fully automatic and no longer requires a separate app. The team has said they do plan on releasing an App to allow those who wish to tinker with settings to do so, but otherwise, a seperate app is unneeded. Gone are the daemon downloader loops.

More indepth information is available here:
How long did it take you to perfect HDMwIn for Gingerbread?

I've spent over 100 hours getting all the little details right and all the algorithms working smoothly. I anticipate another 10-20 hours until all the wrinkles are fixed.

So HDMI just outputs on its own? The user doesn't need to do anything?

Exactly. The user plugs in the HDMI cable, and it just works. The user is welcome to make adjustments via the UI, but there's generally no need. But there will always be someone who is fussy and wants it to lock rotation, change scaling or modify the overscan defaults.

Did there not used to be auto-rotation? And does auto-rotation work for everything? I noticed it worked in both Nova and the YouTube app.

There was a rudimentary version of auto-rotation in old builds, but that required the UI to read the sensors. This consumed massive amounts of battery, and performed poorly. This new method requires no extra power, and offers a smoother experience to the user. Any application which natively handles rotation (either fixed, like Nova, or dynamic, like Messages) will work out-of-the-box. As for YouTube, YouTube isn't mirroring. It uses native HDMI support for Gallery videos and YouTube videos. That was one of the great new features. You no longer need to disable mirroring to use YouTube. It switches automatically.

You mentioned there's now YouTube app support. Is there also support for videos played in the browser app?

Only the YouTube app and Gallery app support HDMI out-of-the-box from HTC. So when those apps run, you'll have different output on your TV from your device. If you're playing video (or anything else) on the device in a player which doesn't natively handle the EVO's HDMI port, you'll get full mirroring. If the app is HDMI-aware, you'll get the app's intended behavior.

Are there any performance enhancements in the new HDMwIn? How are the scrolling speeds compared to the previous version?

We're using the same "Silky Johnson" technology which drove our previous accelerated kernels, so we're seeing the same smooth responsiveness and performance. Because we now do aspect scaling a little more accurately, it's possible the GPU isn't quite as taxed as before, but we haven't felt a noticeable difference. The device no longer has a polling loop running in the background, so that helps battery life and performance as well.

You mentioned there's a custom kernel involved. What kind of features does this kernal support? Are other kernals supported?

I always build our new features directly on top of the HTC kernels. Once we release the kernel and source code, we work with other kernel developers to get our code integrated into their kernels. This kernel has all the latest EDID fixes (for people who would plug in a TV and have the phone immediately crash) as well as the HDMI mirroring.
Video Preview available here:

The kernel has been released on Kernel Manager. This is a free app available on Android Market. Before installing this kernel, please nandroid your phone. This is an alpha kernel. There may be instabilities and other issues. Be aware that installing this kernel will override any other custom/stock kernel you may have installed. You will lose the abilities of those kernels (such as overclocking, HAVs, etc.). This requires root. Do NOT use this kernel with an ASOP rom (MIUI, CM7, etc.). An ASOP version is coming according to the devs.

How to install:
Apparently, kernel manager has issues with the HDMwIn kernel, so please flash from recovery manually instead.
- Run Kernel Manager and approve the superuser request.
- Press menu and select 'Advanced Options'. Ensure 'Flash automatically' isn't checked.
- Select Load Kernel List.
- Scroll to the bottom of the list.
- Select PoonSense 2.3.3.
- Press Download + Flash Kernel.
- Using a file manager, navigate to root of SD card. sdcard/kernel-manager/agrabren contains a .zip file callled "2.3.3-1-793-HDMwIn-Sense233-Alpha-signed.zip". That file is also attached to this thread.
- Move that .zip file to the root of your SD
- Reboot into recovery
- Wipe cache and dalvik cache.
- Flash the .zip file.
- Reboot
- Enjoy HDMwIn.

Also, agrabren has updated his kernel due users having issues with blank screens. If you guys are having issues, please use his newest kernel: build 793. That version is now available on Kernel Manager and attached to this thread.

Old method of install. Causes Wifi errors and other bugs, use alternative method above.
How to install:
- Install Kernel Manager from Market
- Run Kernel Manager and approve the superuser request.
- Press menu and select 'Advanced Options'. Ensure 'Clear Cache' and 'Clear Dalvik Cache' are checked.
- Select Load Kernel List.
- Scroll to the bottom of the list.
- Select PoonSense 2.3.3.
- Press Download+ Flash Kernel.
- After the reboot, enjoy HDMI mirroring. There is no app to start or configure. It just works now. Plug in an HDMI cable and you are good to go.

How to get the official Android 4.0 ICS Keyboard on your Android phone


ICS Keyboard is the best port of IceCream Sandwich Keyboard on the market!
ICS Keyboard - The keyboard from Android 4.0 IceCream Sandwich
This is the keyboard from Android 4.0 (codename ice cream sandwich). I back ported it to work with all android deivces 1.6 and up. Everything is working except Speech Recognition will require android 2.2 or higher.
This essentially the same IceCream Keyboard you will find in Android 4.0 but I made a few minor adjustments to it to make it work a little better. It's also a better version than some other similar IceCream Sandwich Keyboards you will find on the market, such as the port created by johntanmi or NICK ZHANG.
It's even better than the standard IceCream Sandwich keyboard:
- Compatible with most android devices
- Features that are incompatible with older phones were removed to make the keyboard faster
- Bigger Keys!
- Reduced app size by exporting non-English languages as separate downloads
- More user friendly
- Long press "Enter" key to bring up smiley alternatives
- Long press on "/" key in URL mode to bring up domains
Please report your bugs via email . If you report bugs in a Market comment I CAN'T help you.
Supported languages layout: English, French , Hebrew, Arabic, German, Czech, Bulgarian, Catalan, Spanish, Esperanto, Danish, Italian, Finnish, Georgian, Russian, Ukrainian, Latvian, Swedish,Latin, Dutch, Portuguese, Slovakian, Slovenian, Greek,Serbian, Hungarian, Swiss

[FLASH] *Nov 11/11/11 UPDATE* Hulu hacked flash

I have took it in my own hands to hack the flash apk to allow you to watch Hulu. This is version I have tested on Hulu.com and also youtube.com to ensure youtube still works. This is my first hack and my first apk so please install at your own risk. I do not assume responsibility for any negative effect this has on your xoom, your computer, or your life 

Just install via ADB or save to your xoom and install normally.
You will need to uninstall your current version of flash for this to work.

**You need Root to use this application**

**In order for this to work, make sure you are using Dolphin HD or another browser that is set for Desktop mode.**

**If you are not running one of the ROMs that sets the UA to Desktop you must manually change it each time you open the stock browser. To do this follow these steps.

1) Once the stock browser is open, type "about:debug" in the address line and hit enter. It will appear as though nothing has changed so this is normal.

2) Open the browser settings. Now you will see items such as "Dump Navigation Cache", etc. 

3) Go into Settings>Debug. Here you will see UAString. You can set the UA to desktop and then hit back. This will stay until the browser is closed.**
