I have a app in development. It write data to a SQLite database. I've tested the app on my NexusOne over the weekend and have a bunch of data now in the database. I'd like to copy the database off of the phone and onto my dev machine.
I've tried to use adb pull <path to mydatabase> <path to my local machine> but it gives me a Permission Denied error.
I have an SQL lite database that I am trying to copy to the device. I was able to copy it to the emulator easily using DDMS however with the protection in the device, I cannot access the database files from the DDMS perspective.
I read many attempts here but couldn't find an easy solution.
Is there any way to attach the database (let's say named 'proj') and replace the currently created database proj in he device files?
I am storing a pre-created database file and an xml file in my dropbox ( for storage ) I would like to be able to read the xml file and if the version is different download the new database file and replace it on the sd card.
My plan is to prepopulate a database on a virtual device and then include database in the distribution of my app.However, I can't find the database file.Is it on my hard disk some where?How do I get it?I tried connecting using adb, I did an "ls" and then got really scared by this obscure list of directories.
When making an image I accidentally had Clockworkmod image be saved to the device itself instead of being saved to the external SD card.
I am able to browse to it using Root Explorer and select to Copy it, but how do I PASTE it onto the external SD card when Root Explorer only accesses the device directory and not the external SD card?
Quick 2nd question: I know on some previous devices such as the Galaxy S 4G you were *not* supposed to run Clockworkmod after booting in and from the Apps Drawer, instead you were only supposed to run directly from the startup screen before booting in. Is it OK to actually start the Clockwork Backup/Restore process from the Apps Drawer of the Galaxy S4 and let it reboot and do its thing or is it only supposed to be run BEFORE booting in?
I am getting an error from Logcat saying that a certain column (in my SQLiteOpenHelper subclass) does not exist. I thought I could upgrade the database by changing the DATABASE_CREATE string. But apparently not, so how can I (step-by-step) upgrade my SQLite Database from version 1 to version 2? I apologize if the question seems "noobish", but I am still learning about Android. @Pentium10 This is what I do in onUpgrade:
I have released an app (World Time) with initial database. Now i want to update the app with a database upgrade.I have put in the upgrade code in OnUpgrade() and checking for the newVersion. But it was not being called in my local testing.So i put in the debug statement to get the database version and it is zero.Any idea why it is not being versioned ?
In some books and online I see these method calls being made after a database is created:
Why is this done? As far as I can tell, after creating a new database, the system adds a table named android_metadata with one field named locale and that table has one row with the locale field set to "en_US". Now I assume the column has that value because I am using a U.S. phone, and if I were using a phone from a different region then the locale field would be set appropriately. Can anyone confirm this? I'm guessing that the setLocale method would only be useful in the case that you install a pre-built database onto a phone and then want to change the locale to match the phone's locale. Sound right?
The documentation for setLockingEnabled says it defaults to true so there's no need to make that call, right?
Lastly, what's with the call to setVersion? I can't find a table that contains this information so I've been assuming that the database file itself stores the version number somewhere. So when I create a database, which requires you to have already specified the version number in the call to the SQLiteOpenHelper constructor, there's no point in calling setVersion. Again, perhaps this method exists for the case of installing a pre-built database to a device and you then wish to change the database's version (though I can't think of when doing this would make sense).
I have an application for which I am planning to release both a free and a paid version. I found that this will require the two versions of the application to each have different package names.
When a user upgrades from the free version to the paid version, the paid version needs to be able to access the database built by the free version. I am trying to understand the best way to make sure that upgrade does not disrupt the user's data.
I have read that the AndroidManifest file setting for shared user id should allow both applications to access the same data. I don't need the applications to both be running simultaneously, as I expect the user will uninstall the free version after upgrading to the paid version. However I need to make sure that if possible the user's data is not lost and is still accessible and usable by the paid version of the application.
I have read about a problem with the shared user id where uninstalling one application will cause the other shared application to stop working because its permissions get deleted, (see details at http://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=2773 ) Apparently this issue is fixed in doughnut, but since all the currently deployed android phones do not have doughnut yet, this still seems like a significant problem.
In addition to the database information, I would also like to preserve the user's default shared preferences settings after the upgrade. However the default shared preference settings are not as critical as the data in the database.
I have noticed that some apk's that cost money on android market are available to download from some torrent sites for free. I don't think many of the developers here enjoys that very much. So my question is if there are ways in Android to get around this so that you can't copy a program from device to device?
How to make exact copy of my device on Android SDK so that I can test and develop roms on it? I found a guide on xda but it shows how to emulate Xperia X10 and it needs an add-on for X10. But there is no add-on for my device, so how can I emulate it manually? I have a Karbonn ST10 tablet.
I am using a db file and trying to access that file thru emulator it works perfectly fine but when i run the same app on device i get the error of no such table when i checked the path also it gives the right path and also the status of database open flag it returns true not able to guess what i am i doing wrong i have changed the permissions of database folder also for the emulator still no luck for that reason i wanted to check the folder of device are the db files present ...
Is there a database anywhere that has all of the different devices that use the android operating system and what their technical specs are. Mainly screen size, screen density, internal storage, external storage, memory, etc.
I need to view the contents of my app's database on my device.I have read you can copy the database off the phone using 'adb pull' but I really have no idea how to issue this command, or where to find the database on the phone.
My question is how to copy a file from sdcard to /data/misc/wifi directory? I am working on a configuration tool for wiki supporting wpa enterprise. The configured file wpa_supplicant.conf must be put in / data/misc/wifi in order to work. So how can I move the file from sdcard to there? Is there any function calls to request a superuser access?
