So I am running an older version IC3ROM (4+ months old). When I left, Froyo was a buzz word, and leak rooting was a dream rumored to never happen. Is it time to upgrade to something new? I can't really complain about IC3ROM, as with Launcher Pro, it has been great. I don't particularly like the idea of starting over, but if there's something out there worth it, I'd give it a go. Opinions? I don't really care about Verizon's interface as I always replace it with launcher pro, but performance and stability is #1 concern.
Does anybody have a link to get an older version of Dialer One? Is there a way that I can revert back to my previous version? I updated it to Version 1.2.6, and I must say the new changes are terrible. Facebook pictures no longer sync. 2.) Calling a number after dialing is more difficult as instead of having a fairly large area to click to call, you have to exactly touch the tiny phone logo, 3.) Before I could click the bar to change from contacts, recent calls, and favorites. Now I have to swipe to go between the three. The one positive with the new upgrade is the developer fixed a bug where the dialer would always crash if you attempted to add a missed call number to your contacts. Not that works fine. But losing the other three things are enough for me to want to go back.
It is pretty easy to install. If you've installed HTC Sync it may cause an Android Debug Bridge error. If thats the case then just open task manager and close the process that starts with FCY or something like that. Once you get past that it will ask you to plug in your phone and install the software.
My application is built on 2.2, but it is backwards compatible down to 1.6. I've used reflection for the newer methods. When I try to run it on an emulator in Eclipse, it only lists my 2.2 AVDs. I need to test on 1.6 to ensure compatibility. I've tried building with Android 2.2 and with Google APIs 2.2 with no luck. (what's the difference, anyway?) I have set <uses-sdk android:minSdkVersion="4" targetSDK="8"/> in my manifest. I also tried targetSDK="4".
I've been doing a bit of research, and it seems that Samsung Kies is not meant for (or supported) for North America. Apparently, the older versions of Kies could work on our Captivates and was available to download through Samsung's Europe site. However, the newer versions of Samsung Kies can apparently detect that we've got North American Captivates and will not connect. Anybody have links to the older versions? Doesn't proprietary-ness totally defeat the reason we bought androids in the first place?
Think Google Voice was updated a few days ago. Version 0.3.0 on device. Every time on power-off/on it force closes. Uninstalled and reinstalled it, did not help. Reviewed the log file and there are some unhandled exceptions in Google Voice code. Any one else with this problem? Is there a way to reinstall an older version of Google Voice app?
we have discovered something very strange that we're seeing with android 1.5 phones (hero and eris in particular). it seems like if you install an older version of an app over a newer version of the same app, after you reboot your phone, if you launch the app, you will get the newer version of the app!
once you are in this state, uninstalling and rebooting, and reinstalling different versions of the app will be fine until you reboot your phone. once you reboot your phone, launching the app will revert to the newer version of the app........
I have a project that builds against Android v2.1 . I can run it fine on a phone running 1.5 but when I try to launch it with an emulator running 1.5, the emulator doesn't show up on the list of available AVDs. I have the <uses-sdk android:minSdkVersion="3"/> tag in my manifest but it doesn't make a difference.
and i've been trying to root this so i can use other application and wifi tether however everytime i tried i always get this error " MAIN FOLDER IS OLDER , MAIN UPDATE FAIL!"
I used unrevoked - does not work then i restore to factory setting THEN i tried simpleroot get message Main Folder is older, main update fail!. I also have tried to do Restart the PHONE and press the power button and hold the volume button up (but i have upload the PC36IMG.ZIP before i reboot) THIS does not work either get same message.
IF anyone can help me with this root and PM me your PAYPAL i willing to pay $10 to give me detail instruction (step by step how to get this root)
After rooter i need to know if possible to update somehow to get my FLASH working or it have to be update to droid 2.2 (if i update to 2.2 after rooted, will it lose all my rooted previously assuming its already successfully rooted)
I have 1.0 r2 and it takes garbage pictures, and crashes when trying to view any saved image (I've only saved images taken from the emulator's "camera" so I don't know if it shows images that were pushed via adb properly.)
I'll try the 1.1 SDK, and failing that, an earlier version.
Is this a known issue, sort of a "well, if you're really going to work with pictures, you should be using a G1 anyhow..." kind of thing?
We're seeking advice for our application in the Android Market, in relation to nominating a suitable minimum SDK version for the APK files published through the market. We understand that at this juncture there's no facility to provide associate multiple APK files (supporting different minimum SDK versions) within a single listing in the Market.
We have updated our existing application with new Android 1.6 API features and are keen to release it to the Market. However we're concerned about the general availability (and uptake) of version 1.6 firmware and seeking to ensure that we don't inadvertently release an updated APK should there be limited release of this firmware.
Can anyone provide an indication as to how widely the 1.6 firmware has been released? To that end, what are generally acceptable practices for supporting multiple SDK versions from within the market?
I have released an app (World Time) with initial database. Now i want to update the app with a database upgrade.I have put in the upgrade code in OnUpgrade() and checking for the newVersion. But it was not being called in my local testing.So i put in the debug statement to get the database version and it is zero.Any idea why it is not being versioned ?
My old development process allowed me to make any change in the java code and use eclipse's Run button to install the updated package to the emulator.
Now I get [2009-12-15 11:51:55 - Scoopful]Application already deployed. No need to reinstall. even though the code has changed.
I realize the manifest version Code is used to determine if the app has changed and it works fine if I bump up that number. This did not used to be necessary and it slows down development when I have to enter AndroidManifest and make a change with every deploy to the emulator. Is there a way around this?
What implications does upgrading an app have on stored data i.e. Preferences and database? Does the system perform a clean install of the new version(i.e. remove the older version and then install the new) or something else? What if the user wants to retain the stored data- say values in the shared preference or a sqlite database? How can I emulate this app-update-install scenario? If I have a version 'x' installed on my emulator and I do a adb install of version 'x+1' I am getting INSTALL_FAILED_ALREADY_EXIST error. Should I try hosting the new apk on a Web server, will the Package Manager take this as an update and do the needful?
My boss recently gave me an HTC Wildfire phone for doing an Android version of one of our mobile apps, which is all fine and good, except that the app requires API level 8 (ie Android 2.2), and the phone itself only has Android 2.1 installed. After much googling, I discovered that this phone does support Android 2.2, and carriers will be rolling out updates over the air for this model phone "in the near future". Since I'm not entirely certain what our lazy carrier's definition of "near future" is, it would be nice if I could download images for particular releases and install them on my phone. Coming from the world of the iPhone, it seems that this should be something rather necessary in order to successfully develop an Android app. Yet, it doesn't seem that Google offers any Android OS updates themselves. Have I no choice but to wait for the carrier to release an update?
Is it possible to wipe the X10 and clean install the latest version of Android on it? Will it work properly and recognise all the X10's hardware functionality? I suppose the camera app and options will be lost... not sure if there r camera apps to cover this.
When developing on BlackBerry or iOS, you can deploy your application just by dropping the compiled code into a special directory, and when the simulator boots up it will check that directory and install any apps that it finds there. Is this possible for Android? The reason this feature is desirable is because my build system deploys builds nightly. I want the emulator ready to go when my QA team gets in the next morning. To do that, I have to write a script that boots up the emulator, waits for it to start up, then calls adb install and finally shuts down the emulator. It would be great if I could just drop the .apk in a directory and have it ready to go the next time QA boots up the emulator.
So a question for anyone using touchdown. Does it matter which version you install? I see "Exchange for Android 2.0/2.1" and "Exchange by Touchdown". I would assume I should use the former, but there seem to be more 2.1/2.2 users on the latter.
The OTA downloaded but failed to install on my X running rooted 2.1 and nextheme. No apps deleted or other mods of any kind. I removed the theme and decided to go with the leaked version rather than deal with new restrictions on the OTA. I tried installing the stock 2.2 version in rom manager and it failed. I wiped the phone and rerooted and installed bootstrap and rom manager then tried again and it failed. Can someone point me in the right direction please?
