Android :: Enable/Disable Auto Sync And Background Data

Apr 20, 2009

I want to develop an application that disable the Background Data (new feature in Android 1.5) and Auto Sync and then enable GPRS/EDGE connection and vice versa.

I figured out how to enable/disable GPRS/EDGE by changing the APN settings. (weird solution. However; Android developers couldn't think a user may want to disable GPRS/EDGE) But, I couldn't find a way to enable/disable Auto Sync and Background data.

I investigated the Android code and as I understood, the Sync operation is an intend. So, I wanted to reach with putExtra to the intend and trigger the enabling/disabling. But; I couldn't find the correct keyword.

Android :: App / Widget To Disable Background Data? (Not Same As Auto Sync)

May 7, 2010

I have a Motorola Milestone running Android 2.1.Is there a widget which turns "background data" ("Settings -> account & sync -> background data") on/off? I know there are several widgets which turn auto sync on off (e.g. the power control widget) and disable data connections altogether (apndroid, quick settings, etc), but that's not what I need. I searched the market, google and this forum but couldn't find anything.The only workaround I found was to create a shortcut to "account & sync" using "any cut". Not a widget, but close enough.Is there a widget, or a better way to do this?

Android :: Enable / Disable Auto Brightness Mode From API?

Oct 18, 2010

I want to control the system settings "auto brightness", setting it ON or OFF.I'm able to control the brightness level but only if AUTO is OFF. From what I read until now there is a SCREEN_BRIGHTNESS_MODE in Settings.System but only for API level 8 or higher and also not recommended to mess wit it. But currently my phone has Android 2.1 (API 7) and there are widgets that can control this setting (enable/disable auto brightness and set the level). How is this done?

Motorola Droid X :: Turn Auto Sync Off - Application Enable Push Email For Gmail Account

Jul 30, 2010

I have been reading up on the concept of push email, and how it's supposed to be a huge battery saver (since in theory, the phone would only receive a notification of an e-mail, and not the actual e-mail itself). I have also been reading up on how the "Gmail" app's version of Push email is not the same as other Push e-mail software, in that it requires the phone to "Sync" whenever an e-mail hits the Gmail server. As a result, whenever I would try to turn Auto Sync off (supposedly to save battery), I would no longer be able to get my e-mail notifications in real time.

With this in mind, I attempted to find another application that would enable me to use Push email for my Gmail account, without having to "Sync" with Gmail's server. After messing around for a bit, I found that I could manually input my Gmail account info (Incoming Server, Outgoing Server, Username, Pass, Etc.) into the stock "Email" app that comes with the X. Once this was done, I was able to enable "Data Push" in the "Email" app's Settings menu (as well turning off any Polling intervals). By doing this, I was able to receive new Gmail notifications through the "E-mail" app, even when Auto Sync had been turned off. As a bonus, I received them around 15 seconds faster than I did with the "Gmail" app's version of Push.....

HTC Desire :: Friend Stream No Auto Sync - Background Data Enabled

Sep 11, 2010

I've set my Friendstream to update every hour, and this was working fine for weeks. Recently, although it's still refreshing the sync time icon at the bottom every hour, it's not actually updating the widget with the new information. It takes a manual sync for it to refresh. Auto-sync is on, background data is enabled.

Android :: Auto-centering And Auto-clipping TextView Background

Apr 4, 2010

Is there a way to tell Android to do the following when setting the background image for a TextView?

1. Scale the image so that it's just large enough to fill the the entire viewing area without any black borders, while still maintaining its aspect ratio. This might require clipping once the image is actually displayed, but that's OK (read on).

2. Then, center the image in the viewing area, both horizontally and vertically.

3. Finally, clip the image to the size of the viewing area, without any further rescaling.

I'm guessing that this kind of image processing is not automatically done via any of Android's facilities, and that I'll have to do it myself. If this is a correct assumption, could someone point me to some documentation or some examples which could explain how I can accomplish this? I'm guessing that I'll have to subclass my TextView and implement my own onDraw() method, but could someone confirm or deny that assumption?

HTC Eris :: Enable Or Disable JIT On ROM?

Jul 30, 2010

For those of you looking to either Enable JIT or Disable JIT on a ROM that has JIT built in (or you've manually flashed it) and decided you wanted to remove it. I had a little trouble searching so I figured I'd post it with a simple logical subject line for future searching.

In the /System Directory you need to fine the file called:
build.prop
then edit the line:
dalvik.vm.execution-mode=int:jit
to say:
dalvik.vm.execution-mode=int:fast
and revsere it to enable it back (fast to jit)

You can do this a few ways.
1. Use a file explorer on your phone (such as ES File Explorer) or Root Explorer find the direcotry /system make sure the drive is R/W (read/write). Open the file, build.prop, then scroll down to the bottom of the file and it should be within the bottom 5 lines and do as stated above.

2. Use adb commands, connect phone via USB.
adb remount
abd pull /system/build.prop build.prop
On your PC find this in your c:"androidsdkdirecotryhere"
ools and edit with your favorite text editor.
then save the file, and go back to your cmd window and type
adb remount
abd pull /system/build.prop build.prop

HTC Incredible :: Enable / Disable Buttons

Jun 21, 2010

I got my Incredible almost two weeks ago and haven't modified it in any way other than switching to LauncherPro instead of Sense. I've seen these buttons (highlighted in red in the screenshots) in various places; Used for selection of a single item or as "enabled" or "disabled", they just don't look right. Especially in Astrid, they don't look like they do in the screenshots from the market. what are these buttons called (they're not radio buttons or checkboxes, so I'm assuming they have a name)? Does this happen to anyone else?

I'm developing on OSX Leopard. I've also tried in a virtual Windows instance (Windows 2008 server running in Parallels). No luck in either case.

I've tried the obvious stuff like fn + F8, etc.

Should there be any sort of visual cue that networking has gone online or offline when F8 is pressed?

Android :: Auto Enable Wlan Only When Available Access Point In Range?

Nov 21, 2010

I have just recently moved from Nokia E75 to HTC Desire, and there are lots of stuff on the E75 that I will never miss... But, there are a couple of things I am missing very much, tho. One thing was a very clever feature that saved a lot of battery... On my HTC Desire I have to leave wlan enabled at all time for the phone to utilize wireless at all, and I can see that it's consuming approx 20% of the battery power - even if no apps or widgets are accessing internet.

But on the Nokia E75 it's very different... The wlan is switched off by default, so whenever an application on the E75 needs a data connection (internet), it will quickly enable wlan and check to see if there are any networks nearby it can access, and then disable it again if it doesn't find any. (If no wlan access point is detected, it will go online using the mobile data connection automatically instead)

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 :: Enable / Disable APN Settings

On the top of my screen I see an E with 2 arrows, one pointing up and one pointing down, when I turn my WiFi on this disappears and is replaced by a WiFi icon, and I don't get charged for browsing. But I want to be able to turn APN on and off, I can't uncheck the option for APN which I chose, and the application I downloaded does not work. The icon remains there when I'm not connected to a router even if APN is disabled.

Nexus :: Any Data Enable / Disable Widget For Froyo?

Jun 5, 2010

As Nexus One is the only model which has already "partly" updated to Froyo,Before Froyo, if I wanna enable/disable mobile data usage, I used a passive way, changing the APN server setting, to fool the system so it couldn't connect.In Froyo, there is a new option under Setings -> Wireless & Network Settings -> Mobile Networks called Data enabled/disabled, which is a much direct approach than changing the APN.But up to today, I've yet to see a widget which targets at this option. Currently I hv made a 3G shortcut to that setting page on to my home screen. Really hope there will be a toggle widget instead!So how do u guys enable/disable data usage at the moment without a handy widget on Froyo?

Android :: Enable / Disable PatternLock Screen From Code

Feb 3, 2010

I try to find a way to disable the PatternLock screen temporary. I don't want the lock to be disabled completely, but the user should not need to re-enter his pattern all the time.

My idea is to write a service which disables the pattern after some user activity and re-enables it after a while. (and even more)

There are apps on the market that do something like that (i.e. AutoLock or TogglePattern), so there must be a solution ;)

I know that I can prevent a lock completely by using:
getWindow().addFlags(WindowManager.LayoutParams.FLAG_KEEP_SCREEN_ON)
or
KeyguardLock.disableKeyguard()

But that is not what I'm after.

I saw the class "com.android.internal.widget.LockPatternUtils" in the android sources which is used by the settings activity, but this class is not (at least as far as I know) accessible for a "normal" application.

Do you have an advice?

Android : Application Use Of Haptics - When To Enable / Disable - Minimizing Confusion

Dec 11, 2009

Is there a general guideline for application developers about when to disable haptic responses? I know there are ways to enable/disable long-press haptics, but if an application was created to use haptic feedback for other events are there guidelines that application developers should follow? For example, if the user was to go into Settings->Sound & display -> Haptic and set that to OFF, should all applications refer to this setting as a rule of thumb? 

From and end user point of view, I would like to have global control of haptic feedback especially if I find it to be annoying. I have seen several postings in the android forums looking for a "global override" to haptic responses. Ultimately, I think it is a question of should each application provide a menu to enable/disable haptic support, or should this be more of a global Setting for the device. 

I personally feel applications should refer to the global setting, but would like to get feedback from other developers about this. Reference postings I was referring to: http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-general-discussions/6812-hapti... http://androidforums.com/samsung-moment/13633-how-do-you-disable-vibr.
