Android :: Any Way To Hide Certain Application Permissions / Inbuilt File Manager?

Jul 3, 2010

I was wondering, is there anyway a developer can hide or exclude a certain app permissions from being seen by Android market users? And are the permissions for an app controlled or regulated by Google? Another question I have - Is there anyway to restrict PDF files from opening in the default browser? This is a problem when I am on a search engine and accidentally click a link that's a pdf file- I don't want pdf's downloaded without asking me permission atleast. And my last question, is there a way to view current extensions that are installed in the browser.? Where is androids inbuilt file manager? Does uninstalling an application completely take off everything related to that app from your phone?

Android :: Possible To Hide Application Permissions From User?

Jul 11, 2010

I am wanting to know if a developer has the ability to choose not to display the permissions needed for an app they create. For an example if there is a note taking app in the market that says no permissions needed, but in reality, it does have "internet access"capabilities not shown to the user/downloader, Is it possible for App permissions to be hidden and not displayed to the user? Can someone explain to me the process on assigning and displaying permissions on android apps?

General :: Find File Permissions Of Application?

Jan 31, 2014

how to find permissions a given application has. Each app is run as a certain user, so wouldn't finding the file permissions of an app be the same as finding the file permissions of a user? On Linux/Unix there is the find command but I don't know of any alternative command that is available on android. I am running KitKat 4.4.2 kernal 3.40-gadb2201.

General :: Using End And End All Options (inbuilt Task Manager) In Android

Jan 18, 2013

I saw some previous posts on not using the task killers etc.... I wanted to ask whether one should end a particular ongoing active process or not or even for that matter "end all" active applications..... I know these active apps don't have any CPU usage but active apps r meant to use power rite? So should I use end or end all in the inbuilt task manager/power monitor widget or not to save my battery usage??

Android :: Torrent Application - Inbuilt Searching / Downloading

Dec 9, 2009

I am trying to look for a torrent solution. I have transdroid right now, and it is able to communicate with my seedbox and I can manage torrents that are already loaded on there. My problem is adding new torrents from my private websites. I have noticed that torrent-fu will allow you to search some of the public websites for new torrents, but that doesn't work for me. Right now I have to download the .torrrent file with my default browser.

And it saves the file as "unknown.torrent" then I have to open it with transdroid. This question is worded weird, but basically what I would like, is a torrent app with built in private torrent site searching / downloading. Or the ability to have my dolphin browser, recognise the .torrent extension, and associate transdroid with that.

Android :: What Permissions Are Needed For Writing To A File Using Activity

Aug 27, 2009

Are any <uses-permission> clauses needed in the manifest for: 1. Writing to a file using the Activity.openFileOutput() mechanism; 2. Writing to the SD card using FileOutputStreams; 3. Sending email using the Activity.startActivity( Intent.create Chooser (...)) mechanism
http://developer.android.com/guide/topics/security/security.html and didn't see anything that seemed relevant. My app works on my ADP1 without any <uses-permission> clauses when installed with "adb install xyz.apk" but I was worried that it may have problems on a "real" consumer device.

Oct 8, 2012

Let's say you don't have internet access at the moment. Let's say all you have is fresh install of CyanogenMod 9, which for some reason, does not come with a File Manager :

Let's say you have an apk file on your SD card. How would you install the apk file? Terminal emulator, using which commands or another way?

By the way, ASTRO File Manager vs. ES File Explorer, which one and why?

Android :: Permissions With Application Signing?

Sep 3, 2010

I have an application which has some of it's activities restricted via my own permission. The permission is published in the manifest of the application A and a second application B should request this permission and then be able to call an activity from app A. Both applications belong to me and are signed with the same certificate (they share the same keystore and alias/password from it). Application A gets granted the permission but app B gets never granted the permission! Logcat tells me about this during the installation and the app crashes with an security exception when trying to start the activity from app A. What the heck am I doing wrong? Could it be something with the application signing? Please help me, I'm totally out of ideas.

Android :: Traceview - Permissions And Java.lang.RuntimeException - File Open Failed

Aug 17, 2010

I'm calling Debug.startMethodTracing("fnord") and I'm getting a java.lang.RuntimeException: file open failed message. It looks like I'm supposed to have the android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE permission set. But how do you set that permission when you're debugging through Eclipse? Aren't permissions normally set at install time (which doesn't happen in a normal way when you're debugging)?

Samsung Behold 2 :: Understanding File Permissions?

May 4, 2010

Understanding Android file permissions

CODE:.....

To Check Permission at anytime in ADB just Type:

CODE:.......

The next 9 characters define the file permissions. These permissions are given in groups of 3 each.

The first 3 characters are the permissions for the owner of the file or directory.
Example = -rwx------

The next 3 are permissions for the group that the file is owned by.
Example = ----rwx---

The final 3 characters define the access permissions for everyone not part of the group.
Example = -------rwx

There are 3 possible attributes that make up file access permissions.

r - Read permission. Whether the file may be read. In the case of a directory, this would mean the ability to list the contents of the directory.

w - Write permission. Whether the file may be written to or modified. For a directory, this defines whether you can make any changes to the contents of the directory. If write permission is not set then you will not be able to delete, rename or create a file.

x - Execute permission. Whether the file may be executed. In the case of a directory, this attribute decides whether you have permission to enter, run a search through that directory or execute some program from that directory

In addition to the file permission, you can also modify the owner and group of the file. The chown program is used here and its syntax is very simple. You need to be the owner of a file or root to do this.

Understanding Owner Permissions:
The first command is for owner ID, the Second Command is for Group ID.
exp. root.root ( First Root is owner, Second Root is Group ).

Chmod 644 some file, Like Build.prop For testing & then Veiw the Resulted Changes!
Refer to the table below as a quick reference.

Command Line for Both would look like this

CODE:.....

I'll update the chmod with more with More Complex Commands Later

Side Note:Always set owner ( chown ) before Setting Permissions

General :: File Permissions - Permanent Change?

Feb 2, 2012

I am trying to sync a rostering app between two devices using dropsync. The .db files that need syncing are in the /data/ data/com/databases directory. Using Root explorer I can change the permissions to give full rw permission to others. The two .db files will then upload to the dropsync server.The problem is that whenever the app is opened and anything modified, the permissions change back to default and thus dropsync can't access the modified .db... Is there anyway to change this or am I wasting my time? what is the 'sticky' box option in RE?

Android :: Application Requires Permissions To Set Internet

Oct 15, 2010

I have a question about a simple application, the only permission that i have set is Internet, because it's a simple application that reads something on the net. Anyway, the app requires to me (when i install it) three permissions, Internet, SD Storage and Phone usage.

Anyone knows why happens this?
