Android :: How To Install App Programmatically?

May 24, 2010

I was hoping to write a service on Android that would list all applications installed as per previous post.Then, It would decide to update automatically some apps and install others. Is there any class on the SDK that has this kind of functionality? That is, can I call some API or code to install an application on the phone? Can I force some updates as well?

Android :: Programmatically Install Files On Device

Jul 22, 2010

Let's say I have 2 files on Desktop: (Note that I have another file than .apk application.)

.apk file
.zip file (wich contains a large of data that .apk must unizp and do some work with it).

I want to plug an Android device and programmatically copy these both files to Android.

The application must be visible to user and the .zip file must be "visible" to the application, wich will unzip it and do some work with it.

With PalmOS, I use HotSync API. With WinMobile I use ActiveSync (rapi) API. How to do it on Android?

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?

I have made a little application pushed in /system/app with adb qui connect to a server and sometime download apk for updating/installing apk on the device.

My application is a kind of "updater". I alreay can : install new apk

But I can't update an apk which is already installed in /system/app/

I don't know why, but the update is in /data/app/my-update-1.apk

How could i update an /system/app apk ? (without using ADb of course). If i need to use SU command (to push from download folder to /system/app, how could i root the board ?*

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:

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

Aug 4, 2010

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.
