Android :: Need Application To Kill Running Application
May 30, 2010
I want my app to kill a running app but i got the problem that since AP I 8 the method is deprecated and i need to use another function. So i want that if AP I level of the device is smaller than 8 it runs this
Activity Manager a M = (Activity Manager) this.get System Service(ACTIVITY_SERVICE); a M.restart Package(package); And from 8 this But how do i accomplish this because using something like an if will make the compiler complain.
Is it possible if my application is running and that time if any incoming call arrives then i want to kill or wait that call (phone activity). any one achieve this type of work in android. i have a no idea how to do this.
My application is a trial version apk. Once the period is completed, can I initiate another application to be installed/downloaded from the android market ( purchasing process) which is a paid application using the current running trail application.
I started a sample application and called finish() method when user clicks the button. Then it is showing the android home screen and called the on Destroy() method also. But if i am executing the 'ps' command in android shell still it is showing the dip of my application. What is the meaning of finish()? Is it not terminate the process? if not how can i terminate the process(we can do kill -9 pid in android shell but i want programmatic approach).
I haven't manage all errors on my application anymore. So I would like to know if it is possible to Kill the entire app when it crashes? (when the message "app MyApp crash, force close" appear, I would like the application to be killed when user clicks on "force close")
I want to offer the user an option to exit the application as I need to delete some sensitive data, which is stored in the SharesPreferences as long as the application needs it.
As soon as the user wants to exit, the password in the SharedPreferences should be wiped and of course all activities of the application should be closed (it makes no sense to run them without the known password - they would crash).
How can I do that?
System.exit(0) and finish() only exit the current activity - useless. I know there is a taskmanager app. How is that one doing it? It's able to kill the whole application ...
I'm having troubles with users that report that if they leave the application opened and after a few hours when they return to it the app crashes. I'm pretty sure it is because I'm not storing/restoring the status correctly when my process is killed by the system, but I would like to be able to test it in a repeatable way. Which is the best way to simulate the same behavior that happens when Android kills my process on low memory conditions?
After searching, I was unable to find any post that deals with my particular problem, and I don't know if it's a problem or something I have to deal with. On my LG Eve (unlocked, not yet rooted), when I run Task killer, I notice that there are two items in the list that look like configuration files (window with a gear in front of it): com.tni.Task killer:Captain Obviously, the first one is linked to Task killer and if I kill the configuration file, it kills the Task killer process. When I try to kill beware.com, though, it does nothing. The file remains in the list and is also visible in the Task killer widget. (Speaking of the widget, when I kill Task killer, the icon for the 2 configuration files usually remain, even if I auto kill everything.) Doing a little searching on the tubes, I found that beware.com are the developer for Quick Settings. I don't think I downloaded that app yet, but I might have and subsequently deleted it. Is it possible that the configuration file remains after I un install an app? If so, how do I remove that con fig file?
It seems that what's draining my battery the most is my poor signal at work. I killed mobile data today while at my desk and despite the battery having just turned orange, it didn't turn red for nearly 5 more hours. So, I'd like an app that will kill the data connection at a certain time. Ti terrific and Setting Profiles Lite don't have the option to just kill data, only an airplane mode option.
I have a problem that annoys me a lot when sometimes i kill all apps or when the mobile goes sleep, when reopen it and then unlock the screen, the HTC logo appears and it starts loading till it is ready.
Situation: Second day of owning X8. So I'm downloading some Apps and one of them took forever, the download arrow was showing activity all through the night. (I was on WiFi) This morning, I pull down the Activity bar and see that the phone thinks the Download is still continuing. I couldn't see anyway to force quit other than turning off the phone. So, how does one Kill an Activity, Application, or Process in this Android system?
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.
I need an Android application which should be able to fetch data from the web (maybe an .apk or a .jar) and launch "something" from it.
If it's a "trivial" class there's no problem at all. This is my Loader
The problem is that the code I want to execute looks very like an application, which should have a "simple" view and some interaction on it.
I'm not able to invoke the "onCreate" method of my downloaded class.
I guess I've three streets:
I look for a method which silently install the application and then runs it (is it possible?) I understand how to initialize a second "application" inside my own one (with its own R and all stuff) I write my master program to fetch data from the web and construct pages dinamically.
I've created a class which is an extension of Thread. This class hits a web service and throws some data on screen. I don't care about persisting this data (the screen displays search results).
Currently, the user simply types into an EditText and clicks a search button. I'd like to take away the search button and implement something similar to Google's Instant Search where, as you type, the search results get updated.
This means, as the user types, the search parameters change. I want to be able to kill the currently running thread (if one is currently running) and spawn a new one with the new search string. How can this be achieved? Can I do it with Thread or will I need to use a new object?
I develop[e a small program to play the video from localhost ... but that is not working its show like ... ActivityManager: Warning: Activity not started, its current task has been brought to the front this is the error message ....
I have made an app which have target sdk a 2.2 and min sdk version as 3. And i have 2 services which start at boot time. when i run the app on 1.6 than it is running fine but as i try to run the app on 2.2 my services get start but got Crash after some time. why this is happening? when i look at log cat it is giving me something like this which i not coming in 1.6
I developed an "heavy" application (700 Mb !). With an "apk installer" application, i can install it on the Nexus One SD card (Froyo "installLocation" option). My application is heavy because of the videos it contains (located in /raw directory). The problem I have, is that it crashes when launched, with this error :
I notice that my application continues to run in the background after I hit the home or back button. I tried calling the finish() method and it still says its running. On another note, how do I setup the keyListener to respond to the user hitting the back or home button. I tried implementing OnKeyListener and using findViewById(R.Layout.main).setOnKeyListener(this) to call finish().
I have successfully booted android on to the omap 3530 evm(mistral) using the prebuilt binaries available in the mistral site.. now i would like to run a simple application like hello world on it.. can somebody please guide me as to how to go about running it and if some tools have to installed..?
I want the application to run in background. This application should run continuously and should never get killed. Will running application as Service solve this issue? The application should get started automatically on start up. I don't need any GUI for this application. The main issue is Service getting Killed. Does service get killed ? and in what conditions will that happen?
I'm wanting to run a script called toggle.sh on Android. Should I be able to run this code?
At the moment I can run the command from the terminal and it works but when I try to run it from the application it fails (and I don't know why - there is no USB on my Android phone to plug in the debugger).
The Emulators don't have this command to run - and they are running on Windows anyway. I can't think of anything else to add to this.
I was wondering if its possible to have an application run on startup of the phone and then run permanently in the background. Also I would then like it to monitor the call log, and detect any changes and run about 15, 20 lines of code each time there is a change.
This is sort of about task managers, and yet, not. I have an application I need to stay open (meebo) but Androids's task manager closes it sometimes. I have tried using task managers to keep enough memory free that Android won't kill Meebo, but it usually gets killed eventually anyway. Does anyone have an idea on how to keep it open? I am running 2.2.
I have an application that uses a Service to fetch data in the background both while the application is running and when it's not. When it is not running i would like to show a notification when there is new data, but not when the app is running. How do i determine in my service whether the app is running or not?
For example my application contain 3 pages and run that application when the middle of that application means at 2 page i got a phone call after that phone call again i start that application using menu in home screen .At that time i want a page where we stop in previous(that means 2 page).
