Question about HTC G1

1 Answer

Cannot turn on my adp1

My android dev phone cannot be turned on.No response at all when pressing the boot button, no screen, no vibration
and no led lights even when charging, but i know it does charge as the battery feels warm after some time

Maybe due to I recently used a emergency charger to charge the phone.
I tried replacing the battery but it still doesn't work.
I am very frustrated as I do not know where to repair the phone.
I am in Hong Kong.

Is the android dev phone under any kind of warranty by any company? htc?
Does anyone have similiar experience or know how to solve the problem?
Or just tell me what can I do. Thanks a lot.

Do a factory reset. This will erase all internal data though.
Switch phone off. Press and hold volume up button and then switch on. Should get a menu which allows factory reset. Use volume and on buttons to navigate menu.

How do I get to the BIOS setup on a android Motorola A 955

Typically Androids don't have a BIOS. But what the do have is a boot loading screen. there are a few different methods to access the boot loading screen for Androids.

First step for all Methods

  1. Method 1: Press and hold the Up direction button on the D-pad of the phone (Up direction button is toward the screen), and press the Power button until the screen lights up.
  2. Method 2: Press and hold the Volume Down button and the Camera button, and press then Power button until the screen lights up.
  3. Method 3: Press and hold the Volume Down button, and press then Power button until the screen lights up.

But if you are still insisting on a Bios you can download a Bios emulator off Google Play Store
Hope this helps
