I am desperatly looking for a root for my lg prada 3.0 The problem is that all the root is for the model number p490 while I have the ku5400. If root works for p490, will it work for mine aswell? Is it worth the risk?
I know it is probably something simple. Yet I am not too sure the difference between the two. My first thought is that one is a US version and the other international. I just wanted to check and see the difference.
when the Optimus V came out, I found a thread either on here or XDA about how to change the model number to think it was a different phone. I did this to allow for the usage of Netflix, and I think I may have changed it to a Nexus model..
My current phone, the Optimus F7, is rooted and running stock Android 4.1.2 JB. (I rooted in order to allow for uninhibited tethering from my carrier.)I have browsed here, XDA, and countless pages on Bing and Google... yet I have found nothing about doing this... to any phone.My only desire (not the phone) is to make my F7 think it's - at least - a Galaxy S3. Many of my friends, coworkers and family have the S3 and I figure out things and solve problems on their phones, yet I find nothing on my own, so I simply wanted to turn it into an S3.
I am aware that I could simply get an S3, but I have had horrid luck with Samsung devices (not software) in the past, but have had wonderful luck with LG devices.
Is there a way to detect the device model of a user through Java code on Android? To return htc-magic or htc-dream or something like that, somehow? I have been trying to detect this through the user agent when the client is accessing an web page, however this is always Java0 through Android. Has anyone done this? Any ideas?
I'd like to be able to track the Version number of my application using Google Analytics Android SDK, and the Device Model name for people connecting to my application; What is the best way of achieving this? I'm assuming that I might be able to do something like: Will this work, and is this the best way of achieving this, or should I be using Events? Code...
I want to enter an website using the tel num as a password how do i get it using the android API is it possible? or is there another key value on the android which is unique and I can ask him from the android system , android devices and therefore security is promised?
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 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.
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.
Analogue to this one (http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2788345/replacing-xml-in-file-from-document-in-java or http://www.exampledepot.com/egs/javax.xml.transform/WriteDom.html) I try to use it under Android. The problem is, that I can't use the suggested solution under android, because it throws java.lang.verifyError. After reading a little bit, I found out, that the class that was used to store the data to file, is not usable in android. can you suggest another solution, which is similar easy to use?
I have a widget that shows some data fetched from the Internet. I may have multiple widgets visible on the screen, each displaying some data, partly the same as the other widgets. From time to time I re-fetch the data from the Internet and update the widget views. I've modeled this in an MVC style: I have a model which I can invoke a "re-fetch-data" on, and which the views listen on. My questions:
A) Is it wise to let my model be a singleton? B) Can I rely on that all widgets are served by the same AppWidgetProvider? Or may some of my widgets get served by a different AppWidgetProvider instance? Or, more generally: Is there any guarantee that there will be only one instance of my AppWidgetProvider? If there is only one instance of my AppWidgetProvider, then I could use an instance variable here for the model, and pass either my AppWidgetProvider or the model around where needed. Perhaps a better option?
C) In the AppWidgetProviders onUpdate method, can I be sure that the same "context" object is passed as argument each invocation?
Let me start by saying that I'm sure this has been covered but a search revealed nothing and an updated discussion can always help. So again, sorry for covering treaded ground, but here we go.I'm leaving my job and giving up my company blackberry - so I need a new phone/carrier/the whole package. I am at this point pretty darn addicted to smartphones and use them heavily for web browsing, email, maps, twitter, playing music, and scheduling myself (I don't really play games though). While my blackberry curve was leagues better than my old Windows Mobile-powered-Wing it still has left a lot to be desired. I need a step up.So its basically iphone vs an Android phone and while the iphone seems to win in nearly all the benchmarks out there, I just can't get past the Apple Tax, closed platform, non-replaceable battery, and my general Google fanboy-ism. I could also see myself developing OSS apps at some point - which Android has the more compelling story for.Further research has lead me to view my options as the Nexus, HTC Droid, or Eris. The Eris - although it has great reviews - just seems a bit kiddie so it's a distant third.My concerns are in this order* Good hardware (I'm ok with an onscreen keyboard unless the touchscreen sucks) * Total cost of ownership * Ability to use at my new job (meaning syncing with Exchange Server - though this shouldn't be a huge problem) * Snazzy Operating system.
I am integrating Paypal into my application for in-app purchase. I am using Paypal Mobile Checkout for this purpose. I will like to know whether Android Market will approve this kind of application which uses a payment gateway other than Google Checkout. Can anyone let me know where I can find information related to this?
My contract with T-Mobile UK is up for renewal & i think its time to upgrade from my beloved G1 to something else, Question is, What to? Over the past few months i have been looking at many different phone's and i have no idea what to go for. Basically I'm after the following from my phone: *Android 2.1/2.2 Based device *Physical Keyboard *Vanilla/Stock Android (No UI) *Better Battery Life then my G1. The phones I've been looking at are the Motorola Milestone, Milestone 2 & the HTC Desire Z/T-Mobile G2. The only thing with all all of them is they all feature a new UI (Either MotoBlur or Sense) which I'm not after. I thought i had solved all my problems with the T-Mobile G2 (the Desire Z but with just Stock Android) until I found out its for the US only. Is there any other models that anyone can recommend or am I just going have to put up with not having Stock/Vanilla Android?
In the same way a web or desktop app might have 3 or n tiers - UI, Business, Data for example - what is the suggested structure for an Android application? How do you group classes together, what layers do you have etc.? I'm just starting Androi dev (an internet based app that must respond to incoming notifications) and have no real feel for the structure I'm aiming at.
For an example of what I'm looking for, hit the Home button while you're composing a message in the Gmail app. A little message will pop up at the bottom of the screen for a moment that says "Message saved as Draft." I can't figure out how to display one of those messages myself, and I'm not sure what to call it so I can't do a search for it.
