Android :: Apps Built With 1.5 Get A Black-backgound Icon In The Market

May 1, 2009

We've rebuilt a couple of our apps with the 1.5 SDK (but targeting 1.1).

The Market seems to have a bit of trouble with the background of the icons. They appear correctly (with transparent backgrounds) on the desktop, and they appear correctly when the app is downloaded from the Market and installed on the device.

However, they appear on black (not transparent) backgrounds in the Market uploader web page, and in the Market application on the device.

It looks to me as though the Market has a problem when it extracts the icon from the .apk at upload time, with .apks built by the 1.5 SDK.

Android :: Uploading Apps To Market Invalid Icon Image Size

Mar 5, 2010

I'm trying to upload my first application, but when I select the apk file, I get the following message:

The icon for your application is not valid. Please use a 48x48 PNG.

The file was created in Fireworks, and is a 48x48 24 bit image named appicon.png.

Anyone know of any reason why I would still get this message?

General :: Black Screen After Flashing Source-built CM10 ROM?

Mar 15, 2013

Trying to get CM10 built for the Samsung Galaxy Reverb. It's building just fine, but no matter what we try it WILL NOT BOOT. We get a black (backlit) screen after the Samsung logo and nothing more.

I've tried flashing the stock boot.img over the rom, building and flashing the stock kernel seperately (that boots the stock rom just fine when flashed but won't boot CM10), and tried modding the ramdisk to boot, but nothing is working.

I've looked at other MSM7x30 devices to find if I'm missing anything, but I can't find anything that I don't have in the device folder.

Here's the device repo: [URL] ......

General :: Samsung Galaxy Reverb - Black Screen After Flashing Custom Built CM10 ROM?

Jan 9, 2013

My Samsung Galaxy Reverb has nobody willing to build CM10 for it, so I decided to take on the task. It built without error - processed the kernel and all the CyanogenMod 10 files just fine and generated the .zip. However, after flashing the .zip I end up with a Samsung logo, then a black screen.

The compile went through without error, so I'm a little lost as to what I should check next. From doing a little searching it seems the kernel is at fault, but what to do about that. Am I supposed to flash the kernel separate from the .zip that the CM builder outputs?

Android : How To Color Key 2d Sprite Backgound

Mar 19, 2009

I am working on a 2d library for creating a game including sprite collisions, sorting and animation converting (.spr to Java classes/ bmp's).

At first I used png's with the background color being transparant (24 bits png image) but I want to use 256 color bitmaps with the background color being transparant.

Is this possible to do color keying in android? I looked at several other threads about this topic but the all ended without a solution.

Also I am now using the canvas.drawBitmap to render my sprites, but will using opengl be faster?

HTC Droid Eris :: Market Fix Changed My Market Icon Back To Original

Apr 29, 2010

I had an edited png for the market icon in the vending apk but when I applied my edited png's to Ivans rom with the market fix it seems to have changed the icon back to the original market Icon. When I first loaded the rom it showed my edited png for the market icon but after my first reboot it seems to change the icon back to the original. I assume that the market is updating upon reboot so I pulled the vending apk off my phone and my edited png's are still there but its still showing the original market icon. Anybody else with an edited market icon notice this or any ideas of why its going back to original? I have tried this a couple times and it always updates after first reboot...

Android :: Is It Legal To Customize / Publish Built-in Apps?

May 31, 2009

Like the Alarm Clock, Calculator, etc. I see that the source is available at :
http://source.android.com/
For example, the alarm clock I'm going to modify will "look exactly the same" as the built-in one, but there'll be a lot more functions. Is it legal to extend the functionality of the Alarm Clock and publish it as paid application?

KitKat 4.4 :: Can 4.4.2 In-Built Apps Write To SD Card Or Not

Jun 3, 2014

I have a Samsung Galaxy S4 running 4.4.2 KitKat. I tried to set the default image, video and documents directories to a folder on the SD card by going to MyFiles -> Settings -> SDCard path. I am taking photos & videos using the default app, not a 3rd party app. Although it is showing me the default is set to the SD card, the images I take using the default camera app all seem to save to the default internal storage /storage/emulated/0/DCIM/Camera.

getting the default image directories to be on the SD card?

General :: Reverse Engineering Non-built To Built Ready SD Extension?

Nov 27, 2013

I have done many of reverse engineering for other electronics in the past, Since Im new to android I was wondering before even wasting my time if is possible to port, or built a rom from sources or a phone thatis NOT External SD built in to a phone that it have the external sd built in.

Making it short can I try to reverse engineer the android code from a Nexus 5 (no ext_sd) to other device that have ext_sd built in?

If is possible where should I be looking to start trying making some development on this as I haven't done nothing close quite.

General :: Nexus 5 - Semi Transparent Lockscreen Backgound When Switching On Phone

Mar 4, 2014

After 2 years I am finally back from iOS to Android 4.4.2 on my new Nexus 5.

I flashed the newest version Paranoid Android and now I am seeking for a lockscreen layout that can replace the iOS lockscreen notifications I got really used to.

Dashclock combined with Dash Notifier seems like a good alternative but I now have some strange lockscreen behaviour of which I don't know if it's normal or because of some settings I missed.

Every time I expand / shrink for security code input I see a semi transparent white rectangle (as seen in the pictures attached).

Is this normal? If not is there any setting I missed, if yes, is there any possibility to avoid this? I don't use any lockscreen replacement at the moment...

General :: Disconnecting Apps From Android Market - Deleting Market Link?

Apr 7, 2011

I have an app that was installed via Android Market. And so, the Android Market knows when new versions are out and notifies me of an update. Titanium Backup calls this the 'Market Link', not sure what else it could be called.

how would I go about 'disconnecting' the app from the Market? Deleting the market link as if it were side-loaded?

Yes, I know this means no more updates for the app etc. Which is actually what I'm after.

I'm using a SGS - DocRom V9.6 with Speedmod Kernel k13a

Android :: Market Ranks Apps In The Market

Oct 6, 2010

I know my question answers but since there's a lot of you who really spend your time scrutinizing your rank, downloads and all, I'm trying it maybe someone came up with empiric science on this one :

Does anyone understood even bits of how the market ranks apps in the market ?

I usually don't look at stats but following another post on this topic, I counted my rank in my category ... 565 ... Ouch that hurts! Especially when half the apps in front of mine, are crap apps with less downloads and ratings as low as 1 star :).

Not that it would make a difference being rank 250 instead of 565...But this is humiliating a little :s

Since my app has been on the market for one month, i'm wondering if age matters ...

I know I should have asked in the market "black hole of hell " google group but the name says it all. And I'm sure some of you already figured out some of the black magic used by the Market to rank apps.

Now the Android Market requires developers to upload a: Hi Resolution Application Icon, 512w x 512h, 24 bit PNG or JPEG (no alpha) Problem: my application's icon is not a square, and because alpha is forbidden I will have to fill with some color like black. Or maybe white. Which color should I choose?

Android :: Making Changes To A Built-in Android Apps

Oct 9, 2010

I've pulled and compiled the latest Android tree. Now I want to make changes to the Android's Browser application.

The environment in Eclipse is already set up. I tried creating the project by selecting "Build project from existing source", but it fails to build because it uses libraries not in the SDK.

Does anyone know how to import the missing source in order to build the Browser app, or even better, how to just copy the source into a separate project and use it like I was developing a regular application?

Android :: New High Resolution Icon Field In The Market Console

Nov 17, 2010

I have noticed that there's a new high-res icon field in the market console. Does anyone know what that's for? I have tested this new field, and I can tell for sure that it was ignored when rendering the android market icon. Maybe that it will get used after a market upgrade... Furthermore, I have had problems with the market icon. After various tests, I have realized that it is always the mdpi icon, scaled to some random size (51px, etc..), even if there's a hdpi icon, and whatever device I used. But I see some icons which seem to be pixel-sharp. Is this just an illusion or is there a trick?
