I'm a bit of an android noob, while I managed to root and freezes the apps ok, I was wondering if there is an easy way to auto launch the music app on boot?

I'll see your noobiness and raise you a complete incompetent by asking - should I have any concern about the GingerBreak-v1.20.apk getting tagged as Lotoor.AH trojan by Eset? Or is that the nature and entire point of gingerbreak .. to be an exploit?
post #9528 of 12715

If you downloaded the apk from xda (via the link Soren provided), it is indeed legit.  Virus scanners usually pick up all sorts of false positives so I wouldn't worry.

 

@ Turrican2:  There are some autostart apps I'm sure out there you can look into.....I've used autorun apps for scripts to do different things back then when certain kernels weren't as friendly for options but have never really auto-launched any app.  You can always give those apps on the marketplace a try, can't hurt anything IMO.

Not a false positive. As you guessed, Pudu, that is technically exactly what the exploit is. Make sure to turn off virus scan before you run that sort of thing.

Right...guess what we're trying to say is it's not a virus and it's safe to install onto your android device....but virus scanner is throwing up a trojan flag seeing an exploit.

So the startup pop won't damage the actual IEMs as opposed to my ears? If that is true, why are people going to the trouble of using the 6.3 to 3.5 adaptor and unplugging IEMs during power on/off when can just take them out of ears? There will still be some wear on the IEM connector doing this right?

I am finding the DX100 early in my ownership to be incredibly detailed. The harshness on the upper end/vocals I suspect is my brand new SM3s that haven't been run in yeah? What is a good run in procedure? Just leave on continuous play (how do you do that by the way?) for hours and hours?

Re: the Mr Nice Guy app, is this more for people that use apps other than the music player? I'm only using the music player would this help? How can I disable the Marketplace app? Sorry I'm an Android novice I use an iPhone frown.gif

its for safety IMO, who knows, the pop may actually destroy the iem or headphone haha and no one wants to be a guinea pig for that, right?

You might also try finding different tips and playing with fit. Bad fit and incorrect tips are the biggest contributors to poor sound. Before you waste music listening/enjoying fun by burning in, work on getting fit right.

Actually since being updated to 1.2.7 the pop is greatly reduced to be honest. Still it is a lilttle loud on very sensitive IEMs but nothing like it was before. Before it actually hurt my ears and I felt it could damage the IEM. Now if I leave it plugged in I won't worry about it. Still I'll usually let it load up first anyways to avoid it regardless. Also when powering off there is no longer any pop.

Yeah the pop on startup hurts a TINY bit, but I try to just avoid putting them in before the pop.
