Provided you have done what Vlad said (enable the Bluetooth sharing) and paired the devices (which you seem to have done), I have absolutely no problem to send files via bluetooth using my Nexus-S. I have ICS 4.03 now, but I had 2.3.x (where X is 3, 4, 5 and 6 if I'm not mistaken). Once you have the devices Paired, if the Mac is in range and with BT ...

Text messages from your Mac are actually sent through your iPhone. On your iPhone go to the Settings app → Messages → Text Message Forwarding. You may need to re-do the setup by removing and re-adding your Mac in there.

The PATH environment variable is simply an order list of directories over which (typically) executables are searched for and run. In short, to get you through the setup you'll need to edit /Users/<username/.bash_profile to include export PATH=$PATH:/Android/android-sdk-mac_x86/tools This is the most painless way to do that. Note, this assumes that you ...

Due to application sandboxing in iOS, which restricts applications to just their individually allocated areas on the filesystem (and prevents access to any other application's or the OS' files as well as memory, network communication, etc.), an app written to be like an antivirus cannot really read anything outside of its own sandbox. Due to limited ...

Use Android File Transfer, created by Google itself, and it gives you a Finder window to at least transfer files via USB connection. I noticed, however, that you have to use the Samsung cable they provide to power the phone, and not some cheap knockoff USB cable. It would be nice to have a way for the icon to mount on the desktop via a Bluetooth connection -...

You need an app for OS X/macOS to transfer files from an Android phone to your Mac. Try Android File Transfer from Google. Also, a suggestion from another forum is: Try disabling Settings -> Applications -> Development -> USB debugging in conjunction with setting Settings -> Applications -> USB settings to Mass storage.

In order to do this in Yosemite, you'll need to go back to the main screen of System Preferences and click on the Sharing preference pane. In the sidebar, there will be an Internet Sharing option. Click on this to view its settings. Now set the "Share your connection from" drop down to Wi-Fi and then check the Bluetooth PAN checkbox in the menu below. Next ...

This is a new feature in macOS High Sierra that blocks kernel extensions from 3rd-party developers until manually allowed via the Security & Privacy preferences pane. Note this is different from Gatekeeper — this blocks signed kexts until you allow them, and all unsigned kexts are blocked unless System Integrity Protection is disabled. Gatekeeper blocks ...

You can use the app SmoothSync for Cloud Contacts to accomplish that. The app will just add another standard sync account in Android under System settings > Accounts & sync where you can login with your Apple ID: After you've setup the new account all your iCloud contacts will be synced down to the Android device and appear in the People app. Moreover, ...

Not sure if you ever solved this as its 30 days old, but in OS X you need The Android File Transfer App running in the background in order to mount your Android shares. Hope this helps.

In System Preferences > Sharing > Bluetooth Sharing, ensure that Folder for accepted items is set to something. If it isn't set, incoming file transfers are rejected automatically.

The option is not available because you have selected to share your connection from Wi-Fi. You can't share your connection from Wi-Fi to Wi-Fi. Use an alternative method of obtaining a connection to the internet (e.g. Ethernet) so that the internet connection can be shared over Wi-Fi.

I had this issue with both Google Drive and Karabiner elements not being allowed to load. I closed quit Chrome and the Allow button worked.

No, nothing is deleted when updating. A common sense would be to back-up everything as things can go wrong, but if everything go right, nothing is deleted! Even opened apps are reopened after update. It must be noted though that the first time you launch Eclipse, OS X will tell you that it will install Java first, as Java is not installed by default anymore....

Since then, this driver has come out. It's FOSS too. http://www.joshuawise.com/horndis

I had a similar issue albeit in my case the cause was my usb cable. It was manufactured for power supply and hence let no data through. Switching the cable let me connect my Android device without further problems.

That's not really how this works. The Android device images are not bootable images or installers or something. They contain a packed copy of the Android OS specifically built for the targeted device as well as all required hardware drivers. No virtualisation software will find any bootable code in such a firmware file. Also most VMMs (including Parallels) ...

This restriction can be bypassed by changing your browser's user agent. This can be done by clicking the "..." menu and selecting "Request desktop site". Apparently Apple only blocks Chrome for Android, not for desktop. References: New York Times USA Today

I recommend Wunderlist. It has apps for Mac OSX, Windows, iPhone, iPad and yes Android. It can sync all between these different platforms. By the way it's free.

Welcome to Ask Different! If you're wanting to do video editing, web design and software development on the move, I'd personally say that a 13" screen is too small. I'd go for the MacBook Pro 15". However, you can connect a MacBook Pro to an external display when working at a desk which would allow you much more working space for your applications. In ...

Look in ~/.profile, ~/.bashrc, ~/.bash_profile, /etc/bashrc for a line of the following form: export PATH=$PATH:/Users/austinzuffi/Development/Android/adt-bundle-max-x86_64/sdk/tools Also look to see if any of those files contain a line starting with either source or . (which is short for source). If they do then look in the sourced files too. A quicker ...

There is an app called Reminder For iCloud on Google Play, which I believe can meet your need. It can sync reminders of iCloud.

Updating OSX to El Capitan resolved the issue. Update: Just to clarify. The issue started when I updated my iPhone to the latest version (ie IOS9). A notification popped up saying my iMac's would also need to be updated to IOS9 to remain compatible which is likely a bug as my iMac doesn't run IOS (Ie should have said OSX 10.11 El Capitan). At the time I ...

Many reasons You cannot create another file system No firmware exists for this It would void your warranty Android device developers spend a lot of time developing their hardware and software to work together, just like iOS.
