I'm trying to figure out a way to programmatically determine if my build was built in debug mode vs. release mode. I'd like to hide some items in my settings screen if it's release. When I build my app in Eclipse I'm building by default in Debug mode. However, when I build the app using the command line, I build it in release mode and sign the app using the jarsigner tool.
I've tried using: PackageInfo appInfo = manager.getPackageInfo("com.adobe.psmobile", PackageManager.GET_SIGNATURES); to test if appInfo.signatures.toCharsString() matches my debug signature and that didn't seem to work.
I'm now trying to see if I can introspect the app's KeyStore, to match the default debug alias described here: http://developer.android.com/guide/publishing/app-signing.html of "androiddebugkey" but I haven't figured out how to retrieve the app's KeyStore yet.
This is more of an Eclipse error than an Android or Ant error. My Eclipse project won't build because when it sees the build.xml created from the Android command, it starts looking for the debug and release commands. Well, since they are dynamically generated from the <setup> task, they don't exist. So now Eclipse (Build id: 20100218-1602) locking the project from build/run based on these errors. kay.. so here is the weird part: It worked this morning. In fact it has been working for weeks with the build.xml file sitting there. All I did was edit the build.xml file in Eclipse (changed some constants). Ant thinks everything is peachy.
I am following the instructions on code signing on the Android Developer site, and it mentions that if you specify that you want to compile in Debug mode, it automatically signs the resulting file with a debug key. It also says that if you specify that Eclipse should compile in Release mode, that you can use the Export Wizard to generate a private key and handle the distribution signing.
Can someone point me to the setting in Eclipse for Release vs. Debug compiling. When I use the Export Wizard, I am only given the option to export unsigned. I am pretty sure I am stuck in Debug mode, since my app has no problem running in the emulator or my tethered G1.
I have a brand new Galaxy Tab that I am trying to use for some development. However, the usual method of installing the ADB driver isn't working on my Win 7 x64 version. (I have even tried the USBDeview method of deleting everything that looks like an Android device.)
Has anyone out there gotten this to work? If so, what did you have to do?
my android application runs in debug mode only even if i click the run button of the eclipse or run it by touching on its icon on the device. what will be reason for this?? anybody has any idea about it?
I have a activity B that is called by activity A, I want to debug the code in B. I have set the breakpoint, however the debug control never enters B.
When I debug in eclipse, although the class B is called from class A, the debbugger pointer never enters the new window, where I have placed a debug point in Class B. I am not able to take the pointer control to class B and stop at a specific point, which will help me verify certain variable values.
Fellow droid incredible users, I am trying to root my phone with unprovoked and i have the 2.2 system on my htc incredible. I'm unable to find "debug mode" in the settings and i need it on to apply the unprovoked root. Please help me find debug mode.
In Ubuntu, I have double checked the udev rules. They all look perfect. (I cross checked using another phone too). The USB debug mode doesn't show up no matter what. And I have the adb_usb.ini in the right place. I have tried running all possible combinations of running adb, adb start-server as root. But
adb devices shows no devices at all.
However, with the USB debugging option enabled on phone, it worked on Win7 after windows installed a Common handset driver.
If I go back to Ubuntu without disconnecting the cable and do
Code: $ adb devices * daemon not running. starting it now on port 5037 * * daemon started successfully * List of devices attached 1234567890ABCDEFdevice
The product id is 1234567890ABCDEF and I am able to see it and everthing works fine!!But the moment I disconnect the USB cable, its gone.
So I guess it's not the development machine that is at fault. The device seems to be setting a property while in Windows which stays latched till the usb connection goes off.
Btw the Code:
/data/property/persist.service.adb.enable is 1 too.
I have an android application that parses some HTML, downloads an image, and displays it. I'm using an AsyncTask to do the HTML parsing and image downloading, but that shouldn't be relevant. I never have a problem when I'm on WiFi on my phone, when I'm using the Eclipse debugger on my phone, or when I'm using the emulator. When I have my phone on the cell network (even with pretty good reception), the image sometimes fails to display. I'm having a hard time figuring out what is wrong, since the problem cannot be reproduced in the debugger. Does anyone have any idea what could be wrong?
Update: I have narrowed it down to the image downloading function. This way my original code:.......................
I have a completely broken screen/lcd/digitizer on my Samsung Galaxy S3, debug mode was not on. The phone works as it will still vibrate when turned on and the LED / Menu / Back buttons light up during a boot. USB connector works as well. The phone was not previously rooted.
I had most important data on the sd card and I've already wrote off any other data on the phone as I've since moved on to a GN2. I would like to make use of the S3 (not necessarily as a phone but a server, security camera, etc.). I've read several posts here about my options and looked at numerous google articles, all seem to require debug mode being on or assume/require the data/OS must remain as this is what the user is trying to recover. I do not care if all data is lost on the phone, I just want to make the device useful again.
Am I out of luck if debug mode was not enabled or can I flash through adb via some obscure mechanism? Also note that fastboot is not an option here as the S3 (samsung) does not have it enabled. I am unable to get into "Download Mode" as I cannot see info on the screen.
I need to stop the AudioTrack, regardless what's in the buffer, immediately when executing the stop/release. The AudioTrack plays in the STREAM mode. It appears that the AudioTrack finishes playing what's in the buffer and than stops. It seems that it's such a fundamental flaw since there are so many audio applications out there.
I enabled debug mode in the native browser to change the UA String. I typed in "about:debug" in the address bar. I then went into settings and changed the UAString to 'Desktop.' Now, every time I open the browser = force close. Yes, I tried rebooting. What are my options?
Just got my Droid today, all the software is setup, the emulator works fine. But, Windows 7 will not recognize my Droid in 'Debug Mode', it did once the first time I clicked on the option but now nothing. Is there something else I should be installing for it to be recognized?
I want to know whenever someone is called, calls, smsed or smses. I figured for the calls I'd use the phone state change to trigger when I should check the CallLog provider again. I couldn't see any direct way of getting broadcasts from the CallLog. Did I miss it?
For SMSes I'm having more trouble. I'd like to know whenever and SMS is sent or received. Being able to receive STATUS_ON_SIM_READ and STATUS_ON_SIM_SENT would be great, but from what I've read in the Sms Manager that would depend on the sending application. I can't seem to find any evidence of a default one that android places when it sends. I also couldn't find an sms log provider or anything similar.
I want to make an update to my app, but I seem to have lost or mis- entered the first time (more likely) the key password. Is there any way I can make my users do a safe update of my app or do I have to re- publish? What do I do in this situation? Any way I can access Windows CMD logs?
Is there a way to access the default logs on the phone for purposes of uploading for debugging purposes? I'd like to be able to provide an "Upload Logs" button that allows the users of my app to upload their logs if they are encountering issues with the app. I know I can write my logs to my own file and provide an upload for that, but I like the context provided by the system logs interspersed with my log entries to understand what else is going on on the device when my app has issues.
Is there an app that anyone knows of that allows you to restore your call logs from a WindowsMobile format, or is there a format that I can transfer them into to be able to restore them on Android?I searched and searched and could not find anything on this.I have many cases where there are SMS threads going back several years, some containing invoicing information, and I would like to not lose them.Same with the call logs the history may be important.I've transferred them from several WinMo phones in the past, so have built up quite a history.Don't worry about size or having to put them into a format, I can worry about that, but how can I load them into the Android?Is there maybe a forum or thread that has the file formats for Android? An application that "merges" the data into Android?
