Android :: Doing Coding In Linux Through A Virtual Machine On Windows VS Partitioning

Mar 29, 2010

I already have experience with setting up virtual machines, running them and other minor tasks. Im a gamer, so I wont get rid of windows (for now at least...) but I do want to be a great programmer and to be involved with the Open-Source community Id like to know if its a good idea to do my programming in linux through a virtual machine, vs giving it a partitioned section of the HDD. Id like to know about performance pros and cons and functionality.The type of programming I intend to dive into : Android Dev, Web Dev, Desktop Dev...More Android and Web right now though. I do web designing as well, so dreamweaver is added as an "essential". But im sure I can do dreamweaver files and upload them to the server after programming in Linux...Right? And any info on IDE's in Linux for the above mentioned are appreciated, but i would prefer going the coding route and understanding the essence of whats happening "under the covers".

Android :: Run On Virtual Machine For Development

Jul 15, 2010

Currently I am using Android emulator for development, but it is very slow. I am looking for some android port that can run on real CPU.

For example I installed this product http://www.android-x86.org/documents/installhowto on VMware, and it seems to work much faster, but I have no idea how to setup network connection here.

The question is if some one is using alternative android setup for development, instead of emulator? If so, a link to configure instructions would be great.

Android :: C Development - Virtual Machine - Allowed

Apr 4, 2009

I'm the lead developer of TotalCross, a virtual machine that's just like the one used in Android, and targetted for small devices. Currently, using TotalCross, you write programs completely cross- platform among Palm OS 5, BlackBerry, iPhone, Windows 32, Windows CE (2,3,4,5,6) and Java-enabled platforms.

We plan to port TotalCross to Android, but i'm concerned about the legal way. I'm aware that there may be hack C APIs for Android, but will these APIs allow the users to sell their applications in a legal fashion?

Btw, what is legal and what's not legal in Android? I could easily port our VM to Android if there were a standard C api on it. However, all i see is Java APIs. I could also port TotalCross to run over the Java API, but i'm concerned about speed. I believe our VM is faster than the one in Android (actually, it is a couple times faster than the BlackBerry VM).

Android : How Would You Improve Dalvik In Virtual Machine

Jun 21, 2009

I am currently writing a paper on the Android platform. After some research, it's clear that Dalvik has room for improvement. I was wondering, what do you think would be the best use of a developer's time with this goal?

JIT compilation seems like the big one, but then i've also heard this would be of limited use on such a low resource machine. Does anyone have a resource or data that backs this up?

Are there any other options that should be considered? Aside from developing a robust native development kit to bypass the VM. For those who are interested, there is a lecture that has been recorded and put online regarding the Dalvik VM.

Any thoughts welcome, as this question appears subjective i'll clarify that the answer I'll accept must have some justification for proposed changes. Any data to back it up, such as the improvement in the Sun JVM when it was introduced, would be a massive plus.

Android :: Create ADT Virtual Machine Of Specific Size That Still Has Hardware Control Buttons

Aug 9, 2010

I'm trying to develop a very specific app for my Dell Streak. I want the entire app to run landscape. The Streak has a tilt function that switches the whole OS to a landscape 800x480.

So I want to make an ADT to test in that uses an 800x480 display, but whenever I set the size I get no buttons. The Streak has a Home, Menu and Back button aswell as volume/mute and power, and I need to use some of them for my application.

I'm not worried about the tilting messing up my application. Not yet, anyway. Just need the test environment the right size and with buttons.

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 :: Can't Access Micro SD Card From My Linux Machine

Jul 28, 2010

I just got X10 with Android. Unlike the blackberry that I used to own I cannot access the microSD card from my linux machine. It detects it but does not open it for file transfers. I replaced the microSD card with the one I had in Blackberry and the phone accepetd it and was able to find all the media files on it. However the linux desktop (Fedora 12) still could not access it. Note this is the same SD card that I used in BB and all the files there were transferred using this linux machine before. Is it something in SE X10 that is blocking this.

General :: Playing Music On PC (windows / Linux) From Android (no Streaming)

Jan 22, 2013

I've been looking around for a solution to this - and so far have only found Gmote to be close to what I'm looking for. Actually Gmote hits it on the head, but I wanted to see if there were other options. Here's the setup:

We have a soundboard and speaker system. I would like to hook up a small PC (running either windows or Linux) to the soundboard so that whatever is playing from the computer will come through the speakers. And to control what gets played from the computer, I would like to use my Android phone.

I would consider streaming from my phone if it was reliable enough. I had first looked into streaming to the system via bluetooth - but that wasn't quite stable enough and dropped out too many times.

HTC Desire :: Froyo Downgrade Utility (Windows And Linux) - Any HBOOT Version

Aug 30, 2010

If you've upgraded to official froyo you probably know that downgrading can be difficult, especially if you have an SLCD screen. If you did a branded upgrade (e.g. Vodafone) then the old methods won't work at all.Since current rooting methods won't work on froyo this can be a big problem.I've created a tool that will downgrade Froyo to stock 2.1. It requires a goldcard if your phone is branded. The download details as well as instructions can be found here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=768256

HTC Incredible :: Rooting Tip For Linux And Linux Live Booting

Jun 19, 2010

i successfully got into adb in recovery mode fairly easily on my ubuntu 10.4 laptop using the following method- this should also work for a linux live boot from a usb flash drive

in one terminal tail and follow log messages
~$ tail -f /var/log/messages

In another terminal run the loop

Then

1. plugin usb and keep it plugged in
2. remove battery, eject sd card.
3. put battery in
4. press vol- and power
5. after around 6 seconds, your terminal with the log will show something like "new high speed USB..."
6. press vol- to select recovery
7. press the power button
8. IMPORTANT- as soon as you see a new log entry (something like "USB disconnect"), pop in the sd card

check your loop terminal for adb. if it doesn't work, repeat at step 2

Android :: Partitioning File System On Phone?

Sep 6, 2010

I'm trying to re-partition an SDCard on Android, with root access. What I'm trying to do is resize the 5.9GB partition into 3GB, and then make an EXT partition with the remaining space. I can think of two ways to do this, but I'm a bit stumped in doing either of them: 1) Cross-compile GNU parted, and run it on Android to modify the filesystem in place. This would be my preferred method, but I've been trying to statically compile parted using scratchbox and haven't had much luck, and I haven't been able to dynamically compile for Android in scratchbox either. 2) Directly modify the 512 byte MBR using some utility on my computer, and then dd the file on Android. I have a tool to view the MBR (mbrwiz), but I don't know how to edit it. Does anybody have any suggestions for either, or possibly a third route?

Android :: Audio Stream Trans Coding?

Jan 11, 2010

Let me first state that I do not know Java. I'm a .NET developer with solid C# skills, but I'm actually attempting to learn Java and the Android SDK at the same time (I know it's probably not ideal, but oh well, I'm adventurous :)) That said, my end goal is to write a streaming media player for Android that can accept Windows Media streams. I'm okay with restricting myself to Android 2.0 and greater if I need to. My current device is a Motorola Droid running Android 2.0.1. There is one online radio service I listen to religiously on my PC that only offers Windows Media streaming, and I'd like to transcode the stream so my Android device can play it.

Is such a thing possible? If so, would it be feasible (i.e., would it be too CPU intensive and kill the battery)? Should I be looking into doing this with the NDK in native code instead of Java? I'm not opposed to writing some sort of service in between that runs on a desktop computer (even in C#), but ideally I'd like to explore purely device-based options first. Where should I start?
