Android :: Determining If Device Is Using HTC SenseUI

Aug 25, 2010

How can I tell if a device is using HTC's SenseUI? I thought about using android.os.Build information, but they seem inconsistent. Is there a more definitive way? I need to be able to tell if I can launch the calendar by using com.android.calendar or com.htc.calendar.

Android :: Programmatically Install Files On Device

Jul 22, 2010

Let's say I have 2 files on Desktop: (Note that I have another file than .apk application.)

.apk file
.zip file (wich contains a large of data that .apk must unizp and do some work with it).

I want to plug an Android device and programmatically copy these both files to Android.

The application must be visible to user and the .zip file must be "visible" to the application, wich will unzip it and do some work with it.

With PalmOS, I use HotSync API. With WinMobile I use ActiveSync (rapi) API. How to do it on Android?

Android :: Putting Device To Sleep And Wake Up Programmatically?

May 23, 2009

My app seldom needs to put the device (or screen) to sleep. That is - programmatically imitate user pressing on red stop-call button. According to docs PowerManager.goToSleep() does just that, but requires android.permission.DEVICE_POWER, which is never granted to apps!

(A) What on earth should I do to get this working?
(B) How can I programmatically wake up the device.

just to clarify - I'm not interested in a wake lock solution.

Android :: Programmatically Disable / Enable Notification Led On Phone Device?

Jul 22, 2010

Is it possible to programmatically disable and enable the led indicator light on an Android device? I am not referring to just turning it on and off as in a notification. I did not see anything in the api that would do so. I am guessing this is hardware specific if it is possible at all.

Understanding how incredibly dangerous this question is, I'd like to know if it is possible to programmatically issue a factory reset, as available in Droid and G1. Does anyone know how this is implemented? Is this implemented using the standard Android SDK, a Motorola-specific function, or something else?

Android : How To Detect Device Is Rooted In App?

Aug 26, 2010

Android :: Determine If Running On Rooted Device

Jul 9, 2009

My app has a certain piece of functionality that will only work on a device where root is available. Rather than having this feature fail when it is used (and then show an appropriate error message to the user), I'd prefer an ability to silently check if root is available first, and if not,hide the respective options in the first place.

General :: Any Way To Add / Install CWM To Rooted Stock Android Device?

Dec 5, 2013

I have several android tablets, all but one (at this moment) are rooted. I am not interested in putting a custom rom on them at the moment (mainly because not all functions -like camera- are working on all devices) but I would like the ability to do a Nandroid backup that seems to be only available with custom roms. On one device I can't unlock the bootloader (Azpen A701), don't know about the unrooted one at this time (brand new Hisense Sero 7 pro).

Is there a way to add CWM to a rooted stock android (only root applied and associated superuser/busybox apps installed)? What are the requirements (unlocked bootloader?)? Where to get said CWM and how to install it?

Android :: Determining What Number Is Being Dialed

Jun 28, 2010

My question is- with the telephony manager, is there a way to determine what number the phone is off hook with? I thought getLine1Number() might return that phone number that is being dialed, but it is not what I expect. I am working with 2 emulators, and added a log line so that I could see what that method is doing. When dialing another emulator, I expected getLine1Number() to return 5554, but it was 15555218135. Perhaps there is another method I should be using instead? Do I need to be into the source code to get the information I want?

Android :: Determining Who Passed An Intent To You

Aug 18, 2009

I was wondering if there is a way to determine who passed an intent to my application. For example, I have a service, that I want to act differently depending on who passed the intent (for security reasons). I'm trying to sandbox each calling application, so they only have access to their data stored in my application.

For it to be secure, I cannot trust any application to be truthful about the identifying data it is passing into my service. Therefore, I need some system way of identifying who sent the intent in a way that the calling application cannot change that information. I don't know if it is possible, but I can't find anything in the Intent class, and I was wondering if there may be another structure which does what I want it to. If it is not possible, I would like to get some type of mechanism to do this in the roadmap.

Android :: Determining LocalSocket Read Size

Jul 19, 2010

I'm using a UNIX socket to facilitate communication on and Android device between a system level daemon I've got running in C and an application I've got running in Java. I'm much more of a C coder than a Java coder, so I'm having some issues when trying to read in data from the socket on the Java side. Currently, my code is as follows:

try{//Prepare to write the command and read the ACK
InputStream is = receiver.getInputStream();
OutputStream os = receiver.getOutputStream();
BufferedReader in = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(is));..............................

Android :: Determining Unique Bluetooth MAC Address

Nov 15, 2010

Is it possible to determine the unique bluetooth MAC address for an iPhone and an Android (and to a lesser extent, other smartphones) from within an app on said device? Is my assumption that the MAC address is universally unique correct? A general yes or no would be helpful. Example code in the case of an iPhone or an Android would be extremely helpful.

Android :: Determining Filetype Of File In Assets Folder

Jun 9, 2010

Question: How do you programmatically distinguish between directories and regular files in the assets folder?

When using AssetManager to access files in the assets folder, it seems impossible to determine if a file is in fact a file or a directory. You get the list of files from the list method and then open the file using the open method. I thought perhaps using the openFd method to get the asset file descriptor (and then subsequently requesting the normal file descriptor) would provide me some information. But requesting the file descriptor for a directory results in an IOException (which makes sense since what would it mean for a directory to have a file descriptor...?).

Currently I'm relying on that IOException (resulting from attemptng to open a directory in the assets folder) in order to determine if a file is in fact a directory. (Opening a regular file works just fine). This seems like a bad idea. Any other suggestions to distinguish between a file and a directory?

Android :: Determining The Current Context To Display An Alert

Android :: Determining Data Type Of Column In SQLite

Jun 23, 2010

I'm working on an Android App where the user has different options for sorting the displayed data that comes from the database. Currently my orderBy string that I pass to Androids query() method looks like this:

"LOWER("+columnName+") ASC"

The problem with this is that if the data type in the column specified by columnName is integer, calling LOWER() on it will cause it to be sorted alphabetically, i.e. based only on the leftmost digit, which of course doesn't make any sense for numeric data. Hence I only want to apply LOWER() if the data type of the column is not integer. What I have in mind is a statement like this:

"CASE WHEN [data type of columnName is integer] THEN "+columnName+" ASC ELSE LOWER("+columName+") ASC END"

The part in the brackets is what I don't know how to do. Does SQLite provide a function to determine a column's data type?
