Android : Way To Determine Programmatically / Install Time For Droid App?

Jun 27, 2010

Is there any way to determine programmatically the time at which an Android application was installed? I don't see anything in PackageInfo, etc.

--EDIT--
To clarify, App A is installed at Time X. At some later time, Time Y, App B is installed. Is there any way App B can know when App A was installed? The link http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2831333/how-to-get-app-install-time-from-android/2920310#2920310 indicates that reading the modify time on the source dir of the App is sufficient. Is this really correct? Why?

Mar 4, 2010

I am new to the whole rotting thing, I installed the bugless beast on my droid 2 days ago and everything went great and it worked fine, I'm just having an issue with it being really lagy at times and the biggest problem is that it freezes everytime I open or close the keyoard, I have to forse close and wait for it to load everything up again, a message is desplayed and it says:

The application launcher+(process android.process.acore) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again. Then I hit forse close, it usually only happens when I open or close the keyboard but sometime it will happen at random. Does anyone know why this is happening and how to fix it.

Android :: How To Determine APK Install Date / Time?

Sep 15, 2009

By any means, programmatically can I get the install date & time of the already installed apps on the android device. The ApplicationInfo doesn't provide this info. While digging through the /data folder through the DDMS perspective, I saw the installed apk's do contains the Date & time of when it was installed, but the sad part is that this /data folder is not accessible on the device programmatically.

Android : Install-time Extraction Of .apk Files?

Oct 21, 2010

I'm writing an application and would like to have some files extracted from the .apk during _installation_ time, as the files can be quite large and extracting them from the .apk during the first run results in a noticeable slowdown which I would prefer to avoid.

After lots of experimentation, I have found one way to make this work, but I'm unsure about the "long-term" ramifications of this approach, specifically: will this actually work in android-9 and later?

The approach is to name the files I want extracted at installation time as "lib*.so", and place them into the appropriate lib/ABI folder within the apk file, e.g. the .apk contains:

lib/armeabi/libMyLargeFile.dat.so and at installation time this is (nicely) installed as:

$APPDIR/lib/libMyLargeFile.dat.so

My concern is that 'libMyLargeFile.dat.so' is NOT an ELF shared library. This approach only works because PackageManagerService only checks for files matching the `lib/ABI/lib*.so` pattern (which is followed) and does not check the contents of the extracted file.

This approach works for Android 1.6 through Android 2.2. I'm wondering if this will continue to work in the future, or if I need to investigate an alternate mechanism.

Android :: Android - Modal Dialog With Changelog For App Shown Only First Time After Install

Android :: GetFromLocationName Always Throws IOException First Time - But Is Successful Second Time With Same Input

May 29, 2009

My calls to getFromLocationName() always fail the "first" time I start my app. I catch the IOException which has reason:

Unable to parse response from server

Then I make a second call and it succeeds. Once things are "awake" all future calls to getFromLocationName() succeed, it's just that first one, and there is a ton of latency.

I haven't run this on a device yet, just in the emulator. This seems like a network problem, but it is so reproducible I'm thinking I'm not initializing something properly. I'm using Android SDK 1.1.

HTC Magic :: When Receive A Text It Usually Tells The Time In Eastern Time Though I'm Pacific

Jun 7, 2009

I just got the magic yesterday and so far I'm loving it. Just have a couple questions about texting. When I receive a text it usually tells me the time in eastern time though I'm pacific. However, my sent messages come up with the right time. This makes it so that threaded sms is kind of useless. Everything is all out of whack. Also, every once in a while it just won't even give me a time and there has been once or twice(after fiddling with it for a bit) that it gave me the right time but it just went back to the wrong time right after. Could this be a problem with the phone or is it rogers' fault? I'm assuming it's getting the time from the network and they have it wrong(meaning I can't fix it) but I just wanted to see if anyone else has had this problem.

Also, is there any way to make it vibrate when I receive a text? I feel dumb for asking this as it seems like it should be something really obvious but I can't seem to find it anywhere.

HTC EVO 4G :: How Inadvertently Solved Wake-time / Sleep-time Trouble On Evo?

Aug 7, 2010

I was having the waketime/sleeptime problem that many, many folks have reported and my battery life was obviously crap...and took forever to charge as has also been noted. I had already turned off all the auto-update stuff that I did when I first got the phone. Then I read the many posts abut Facebook app being the problem, but when I tried that it turned out that I was still running the old version 1.2, so apparently that wasnt causing it on my Evo.

Not really wanting to do a factory reset, I thought I'd check for other app updates in case one of the other apps had 2.2 bug fixes. Ran a sync thru the AppBrain app, and it found three updates that I hadnt been notified of:

Once those updates were completed, my EVO immediately starting going to sleep as it used to. I watched it for a few hours after the update and it continued to show realistic numbers for wake vs. sleep. My battery was almost depleted at this point, so I powered it off, and did the battery pull for good measure before powering back on and plugging in to charge during the night. This was all late Thursday night. All day Friday my battery performed VERY well...much better than even during 2.1. I had it on charge most of the day while listening to Pandora at my desk. I unplugged it to go home and now checking it this morning, it's now been off charge for 14h 39m, show wake time of 33:44 vs. sleep time of 15:28, and shows 80% battery remaining! This whole scenario makes me wonder if one of those three apps had a similar bug to Facebook. If you have those...you might want to take a closer look.

Android :: Convert UTC Time To Phone Local Time

Aug 17, 2010

I am trying to get a local time from a server UTC time. I get the UTC time form the server -- and i want to make it right for each individual Android phone whether it be in California or China. This is the code I am using now -- however it snot working.The time I get from the server is "2010-08-17 19:41:13.0" And the code I use to get the difference(in seconds) is the following: public static long getSecondsDifference(Timestamp timeStamp) { final Calendar calendar = Calendar. get Instance (Locale.getDefault()); int refrenceOffset = TimeZone. get Default (). getOffset(timeStamp.getTime()); final long referenceSeconds = (timeStamp. get Time() + refrenceOffset) / 1000; final long currentTimeSeconds = (calendar. getTimeIn Millis()) / 1000; final long differenceMinutes = (currentTimeSeconds - referenceSeconds) / 60; return differenceMinutes; The timestamp is from the java.sql.timestamp package.Right now the time where I am is 11:50AM -- and the method returns that the given server time is -53 minutes ago( so obviously doing something wrong

Android :: Eclair Install Choked With Errors About Locks And Died - Leaving Corrupted Install

Oct 27, 2009

Followed the instructions in http://developer.android.com/sdk/adding-components.html for adding 2.0 as components to an existing 1.6 SDK, from within Eclipse.

It didn't work. Not by a long shot. Instead, it got partway through and then said that C:android-sdk-windows-1.6_r1 tempDocPackage.new01 couldn't be copied because of a lock, and similarly for PlatformPackage.new01.

It said to shut down running programs, but the only program running was Eclipse, which was needed to do the upgrade.

The cancel button was disabled, and the close box didn't work. Shutting down Eclipse killed it, but left C:android-sdk-windows-1.6_r1 in a corrupted state. Restarting Eclipse showed the Android projects with errors, no SDK, and a disabled Android SDK and AVD Manager (which means no ability to rerun the install).

Shutting down Eclipse, renaming the corrupted SDK directory, unzipping 1.6 again into C:, and restarting Eclipse made it as if nothing had ever happened, which is good. But it is not possible to complete the install from Eclipse, which is bad.

The dialog says:

CODE:..............

HTC Incredible :: Phone Reboot During App Install - Can't Finish Or Cancel Install

Oct 22, 2010

So the other day I went to download an app out of the market. The download finished, but it seems my phone decided to auto-reboot itself in the midst of the installation. After the reboot completes, I go back to the market, reselect the app, and it's hung at "Installing..." (And when I say "hung," the market is still fully functional except that one app). I'm given no option to cancel the installation. Killing the market app then trying to go back in has no effect - same deal. Hung on install. Another reboot didn't help.

Is there any way to delete the install package and make the market forget I even tried in the first place?

It's Angry Birds (wanted to see what all the fuss was about), but the install seems to have failed in a way that any app install could have failed.

Android :: MapView Works With Eclipse Install But Not Adb Install

When I run my application on a physical phone from within Eclipse, my Google MapView works perfectly. If export the app to an apk file and install it to the same phone from the command line with adb then the MapView comes up but shows only the Google logo and grid - no map tiles appear. I'm using a debug application key and a GMaps API key generated with that debug key. I've verified that this happens on both the Droid and N1 phones. The logcat looks identical in both the working and non-working cases - no obvious error messages.

Android :: Google - Active Install %? Bug In Install

Sep 1, 2010

Yes we have threads about this already but we still have not gotten an answer AND I think it's about time somebody at least explain what does this number actually MEAN. I'm getting frustrated with the lack of transparency on this.

My apps used to be around 56% active installs

VERY soon after I updated the apps to allow install to SDCARD (preferExternal), then the active install count started dropping like a rock. Now it's around 39% today for my main app.

My opinion is there is a bug in the SDCARD install feature somewhere that is not counting those installs. We know there already is a bug with home screen icons if you install to sdcard you will get a blank icon until the Home app restarts.

There is a little phone icon on the bottom right of the dialer, with a plus logo on it. you click that and you can add to your call, which puts one person on hold (it shows you their number on hold) and lets you talk to the other person.

Motorola Droid X :: Charging Time And USB 2.0

Nov 26, 2010

I had the original droid and now a droid X. Normally when charging either of them it takes like 2+ hours to fully charge from a low charge. Tonight I was at a friends house and I took out this new cord I bought at walmart that came with a universal usb car charger. My droid was on 20% and within 20-30 minutes it charged to full! I'm almost positive the computer was charging it via usb 2.0. Now I have usb 2.0 on my home computers but it always takes 2-3 hours to charge. I went home and went from a 70% charge to 100% in minutes via this "new" cord and not using the cord that came with the droid. Is it possible the cord with the droid only will charge at a certain rate and this new cord is charging much much faster or enabling usb 2.0 instead of 1.0 or 1.1? It would be great to not have to charge my droid all night long all the time. Also is there a way to know if your droid is charging via usb 1.0, 1.1, or 2.0 or even usb 3.0? Does this make a difference with charging times?
