Android :: How To Get Serial Number / ID Of Android Emulator After It Runs?
Feb 6, 2010
If I run several emulators with -no-window option in one machine. The command "adb devices" shows:
List of devices attached
However, according to this output, I can't tell the difference between each emulator device at all. I need to know which emulator runs on what AVD, then I can install APKs or send commands to the emulator.How can I recognize each emulator device or get the serial number of emulator after it runs?
Is there any way to get some type of serial number or unique string, that no other android device should have? It can't be relative to the sim card, I'm looking for some type of hardware identification number...
Iam using a command: adb devices and get this: C:>adb devices List of devices attached HT9CTP820385 device My question is: where this serial number comes from? Does it burned on flash of device one time during a manufectoring or adb drivers assignees it dynamically or it comes with release that is burned on device?
I would like to be able to generate unique serial numbers for each Android device for use in unlocking an application. How could I do this? EDIT: The reason is I want to revamp a paid application and provide users who have paid for the old version, which will have a different package name, a way to obtain the full version by downloading an unlikable free version of the application. I would push an update to the old version that would generate and display the code that they could enter to turn the Free version into a fully functional version.
How to read the device serial number (not IMEI) of a Samsung Android phone (same value that you get when you call 'adb devices') but from within an app or from the device; not using PC/USB/adb.I found a solution for HTC and other devices, which is - to call. Code...
I have an app that has a few checkboxes in the settings and then compiles a remote sql based on the checkboxes selected. i ran it in the emulator and it's fine. but then i exported it and published it as an app, and the same checked boxes aren't being passed correctly. i wonder if it's a caching issue or something. tried deleting the apks a few times and republish but to no avail. i "fake-edited" the source java and then export again, still no difference.
I'm kind of new to eclipse but is there a force build option? i only see build-automatically option under project but not sure how i can make sure that the apk exported is the same as run in the emulator
edit the emulator is version 1.5, and my phone is nexus one running 2.1- not sure if that makes a difference
I have written a simple Authenticator service to work with the new AccountManager API introduced in 2.0. When I launch a test app that uses the authenticator the authenticator service is launched (as expected) and it's onBind method is called. However, if I run my test application a second time in the same emulator (without restarting the emulator) my service is not launched and onBind is not called.
So far the only way I have found to get my service to launch and onBind to call again is to restart the emulator, which is a very time consuming process. I have looked at the Devices view in Eclipse and ensured that all of my processes have been killed, just in case one of them was just being rebound to or something.
I have 2 Hero's, one factory unlocked which runs the HTC firmware and a locked Orange Hero that runs the Orange firmware. If i entered the serial number of the factory unlocked phone and downloaded the HTC firmware could i then install that on the Orange handset?
Two things, please help! When I go to setup ADB, in the cmd dialog box it reads it as "Samsung T929" but doesn't show a specific serial number. Am I okay or is that bad? Then I get to the following line trying to root: data/local/try3 /system/bin/sh Then it tells me that it can't find that file or something. Any ideas?
The problem I am having is that when I run a FWVGA or WVGA sized emulator it sometimes runs at a MDPI size instead of HDPI. Here is an example with pictures. I create the AVD with the proper hw.lcd.density setting and screen size and it randomly does this. There doesn't seem to be a pattern. I used to be able to just delete the AVD and create it over again and it would fix itself for a while but now it's getting worse.
I have an app the runs fine on my emulator and my incredible with android 2.2. Users say my app won't run on the galaxy s. What options exist to troubleshooting this? Is there a special agreement for galaxy?
I have the sprint HTC Hero with the latest update and when I'm to create a back up it doesn't let me do it. I then tried to downgrade the phone installing the the Sprint RUU and when I tried to install the AndroidSDK drivers I can't get to see the Serial Number of my device when I search in the command bar (following the steps of the Unlock). I'm using Windows XP with Service Pack 2. Any help will be appreciated.
Yesterday, my app worked fine on the emulator, but today after the app launches, I can't click on anything when the app runs. The code hasn't changed, my OnClickable event is wired up correctly and there are no errors in the compiler. I can't hit a breakpoint in the debugger. All the output in the console looks normal.
How can I find the serial number on my epic 4g? (it's a Sprint, Samsung Galaxy S, Epic 4G). The user guide says "the serial number is located on a nameplate inside the battery compartment". There's nothing under the compartment lid, but under the battery there is a "sticker" with many numbers but none of them say "serial number". The numbers I found under the battery and on the box are called "RS-SCK", "RS-KOI", "RS", "MEID - Hex", and "MEID - DEC". Are one of these the actual serial number?I purchased this 4 days ago direct from the Sprint store. All I want to do is get the serial number recorded for my records.
Yes, i know this was already often asked, but no one ever posted the solution. Seems that the "android id" is NOT the serial number, because it requires you to access the Market before it is assigned. The serial number is displayed when you type.
I am working on an android application and i want the phone number of the phone i.e the emulator.I know there will be no phone number for emulator.I want to know how to get its phone number. The reason is I want to send sms from the phone.
It the earlier versions of Android SDK the emulator had the set phone number. Visible in the phone settings and accessible to applications through the Telephony Manager.get Line 1 Number method. In Android SDK 2.0 it is not set. How to set it?
In Settings it shows a phone number for the device when running the emulator. It shows the same phone number with several different AVD's. Is this number the same across all development systems (i.e., is it hardcoded or random or...)? Can it be set to some specific number and how to do that?
I am trying to create an app that gets the location and telephone number of the phone. This is the Code I am using to get the telephone number (I am focusing on sdk 1.5) and in the emulator this works.
