Android :: Gps Icon Disappears / Way To Get Back?

Jul 22, 2010

I am using the GPS and something I do in my program causes the GPS icon in the notification area of my phone to disappear for a few seconds then come back, then disappear again. None of the other GPS programs I use have this "problem"... if it is actually a problem. I've read all kinds of articles about the GPS icon staying on after the program exits, but I can't find anything about it disappearing while the application is using it. What causes the GPS icon to disappear?

Motorola Droid :: 3G Icon Disappears / No Data Access

Nov 10, 2009

I've noticed this happen 2 or 3 different times since Friday. For whatever reason the 3G icon disappears from the title bar but I still show 3-4 bars signal strength. At this time all data access is lost, no response from email, web, talk, etc. I've tried waiting it out but it doesn't seem to respond. During this time I've also tried cycling airplane mode, but that doesn't help. So I power the phone off and back on and it comes up with 3g data access again. Anyone seen this or know how to "wake up" 3g data access again once its gone?

Android : Application Disappears From "recent Apps" List / How To Get Back?

Dec 15, 2009

I am writing an app that wants to be able to handle URLs. I also want to be able to launch it stand-alone with no arguments, so I've specified two intent filters: I have also specified android:launchMode="singleTask". Now, if I explicitly launch my application from the application list, its name and icon can be found in the "recent apps" list that pops up when I hold the home key. If I then use the email application to open a URL in my application, my application disappears from the "recent apps" list. Why does this happen, and what can I do about it? I notice that the Browser application doesn't behave like this, and it has similar intent filters and the same launchMode..

Android :: Any Way To Get Icon Back From Media Store?

Jan 11, 2010

I've figured out how to get the camera to work. It's taking a 1/4 resolution picture and I'm putting it into the gallery. Next, I want to create a small icon of that picture to put on a button. I've seen several examples and the code below is what I've been trying:

showMessage("Next Step is cropping - Waiting ...");
logDebug("Sending URI " + mOutputFileUri);
// now we want to grab a lower res version for the button.
Intent cropIntent = new Intent("com.android.camera.action.CROP");
cropIntent.setClassName ("com.android.camera","com.android.camera.CropImage");
cropIntent.setData(mOutputFileUri); //cropIntent.setData(intent.getData());
cropIntent.putExtra("noFaceDetection", true); cropIntent.putExtra("outputX", ICON_SIZE);
cropIntent.putExtra("outputY", ICON_SIZE); cropIntent.putExtra("aspectX", 1);
cropIntent.putExtra("aspectY", 1); cropIntent.putExtra("scale", true);
cropIntent.putExtra("return-data", true);
startActivityForResult(cropIntent, CROP_FROM_CAMERA);

But, this blows up with a null pointer exception. I also get a warning in the log message stream saying the image file isn't finished writing. I've based my code on this:
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1973359/android-crop-an-image-afte...
Also, when it tries to delete the temporary file, there is an error because I don't have permission. This smells like I'm just missing something important. Is there any other way to get an icon of the image?

Samsung Galaxy S :: Trying To Return Messaging Icon Back To Bottom Bar

Oct 10, 2010

I'm a long time Nokia user and got my first android phone two weeks ago and there are still some learning to do in order to know how to use it properly. Today I accidentally removed one of the short keys from the home screen and I'm not able to get it back to it's place. To be more exact, it is the messaging short key which is located on the bottom bar of the screen. The other ones (Phone, Contacts & Applications) are still the, but when I'm trying to return the messaging icon back to the bottom bar, I always end up with the trash can over the area where I'm supposed to place the icon.What can I do, How do I get the icon back on the home screen?

So I added a bookmark, but the original icon that came preloaded just looked a lot better, does anyone know if there is a way to get the original icon back without doing a factory reset?

HTC Droid Eris :: Market Fix Changed My Market Icon Back To Original

Apr 29, 2010

I had an edited png for the market icon in the vending apk but when I applied my edited png's to Ivans rom with the market fix it seems to have changed the icon back to the original market Icon. When I first loaded the rom it showed my edited png for the market icon but after my first reboot it seems to change the icon back to the original. I assume that the market is updating upon reboot so I pulled the vending apk off my phone and my edited png's are still there but its still showing the original market icon. Anybody else with an edited market icon notice this or any ideas of why its going back to original? I have tried this a couple times and it always updates after first reboot...

2.) If I accidentally hit the "thumbs down" icon on a song can I somehow go back and change that?

I listened to ~20 songs before I noticed the "bookmark" feature and didn't write a bunch of the good ones down... and I also hit the dislike button accidentally on a really good song but can't remember the name

Android :: Google Maps Search Disappears

Nov 5, 2010

I have a problem with Google Maps. Everytime I start searching for something in Google Maps, the search box will disapper while typing like I hit the back button. I don't recall this type of behavior happening in any other application. I'm using a Spring HTC hero with Fresh 2.4 (Andriod 2.1) and I'm running the latest version of Google Maps (4.6). After some quick google searching I have seen other andriod phones with similar issues, so I don't think it's related to Fresh. THis issue also happened with the previous version of Google Maps.

HTC Legend :: Keyboard Disappears During Calls / Solution For It?

Sep 10, 2010

I have a HTC Legend and I experience problems accessing the keyboard during a call.

The screen goes black as soon as the call is connected and the keyboard only appears very briefly when i press the on/off button (first I have to unlock) and then disappears again before I can enter/press a digit. Even if I press a digit it is not registered. The screen just goes black, and in most cases I have to press the on/off button again to "wake" the screen up.

I usually have a bluetooth unit connected and find this problem very annoying since it is almost impossible to use services that require the user to enter digits.

1) Does anybody have a similar experience?
2) Is there a setting that I have not found/set correctly?
3) Your solutions/experiences are most welcome.

Samsung Behold 2 :: Program Disappears From Application Drawer?

Jan 4, 2010

Okay a weird this has been happening on my Behold II... After a power cycle one program disappears from the application drawer. The programs that have disappeared are Handcent, dolphin browser, Facebook, Live Bible, Evernote. Others could have but I have not noticed. When I go into "My downloads" in the market the program is still there but when I try to open it it fails to open. I have to uninstall then re-install the program. I only lose one program at a time though? This was happening last week so I did a factory reset and everything was fine until this morning. I have been running GDE home so the next step will be to remove GDE and see if it continues to happen. There have been a few other things happening as well the day after I reset the phone it would not boot up it just got stuck at the "android" screen I had to go into the recovery console and wipe it again to get it to boot up, also twice yesterday the phone just started vibrating continuously the screen would not turn so I had to remove the battery and restart the phone. I do not have the phone rooted.

Samsung Moment :: Alarm Notification Disappears / Stop Them To Do So?

Jan 14, 2010

Another question. Has anyone randomly seen their lock screen and alarm notification disappear?

It seems to happen when I get new notifications. I can see it happen maybe 50% of the time when i get a text, but have seen it other times just disappear when going into email or something. I can always get it back just by opening the alarm program i'm using.

I have seen this happen with the stock moment alarm and gentle alarm. Klaxon will disappear for a moment and re-appear at times when others would have probably disappeared.

For txt i'm using the application the moment came with. using gmail and moxier. not too much notification add-ons minus that except craigsnotifica.

any thoughts? i talked with the developer for gentle alarm and he couldn't reproduce it...

Android :: Cupcake Memory Bug With WebViews - That Disappears When Debugger Attached

May 15, 2009

I've literally spent 15+ hours trying to figure out this one bug (when I should be studying for finals). Any help is greatly appreciated. The bug appears on the dev1 phone running cupcake. It was not present before the upgrade. Basically, the problem is that when a activity with a webview and 2 threads is run, the service that runs after it will always crashes the process (but it works fine when the debugger is attached). The worst part is that it crashes at arbitrarily places in the service, so I can't isolate the error.

The details:

I have an activity with a WebView. The activity executes two threads, one after the other using the basic new Thread(new Runnable() {public void run()... Both threads use the same handler to report back results to the main activity. Flow works like this: when the activity starts, the first thread gets data to construct the URL that the webview will load (using DefaultHTTPClient). Then when the user navigates to a certain page, the second thread is again fired (using DefaultHTTPClient) to get some xml. This works fine.

The problem happens right afterwards. Once the activity with the webview finishes (it calls finish on itself), a service is started that has a thread that using DefaultHttpClient to downloaded some xml, process it, etc. The service crashes at arbitrary points with no error messages, simply displaying a memory dump, and kills the main process with it. When I attempt to debug the process, it runs just fine w/ no crashes. I've repeated this at least 30 times, with the same result. (no crash w/ debugger, crash when installing signed apk file to device and running it).

The program doesn't crash when the threads are removed from the activity with webview. So even if the webview activity runs (but all threads are removed), the service runs just fine regardless of the debugger.

Here is how my threads start (both of the ones in the activity with the webview, and the main thread in the service that is launched afterwards):

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

.................

Here is what logcat displays:
