Android :: Protocol To Secure A Connection Between A Mobile Device / A Web Service?

Jun 30, 2009

I'm looking for a protocol to secure a connection between a mobile device and a web service. I want to ensure that only the mobile device can perform actions on the web service and vice versa. Data doesn't need to be encrypted. I know Oauth, but it seems that it's more used to secure connections when you got 3 different entities (Server, Consumer and Auth). Here, the Consumer and the User would be the same person. Is there a simple protocol to do that (without requiring the user to login and then authorize the access token like it is the case for Oauth)? I need to use it on different plateforms, so the protocol needs to be available at least on iPhone and PHP.

Motorola Droid X :: Google Email Application Setup - Use Secure Connection

Sep 17, 2010

Can anyone tell me how to setup a google apps (no gmail) account on a Droid X? I set it up on my Fascinate easily. I need to set SSL for outgoing, and TLS for outgoing. The Droid X only gives me the option of "use secure connection". The thing is, I got it to work as a regular email account last night, but then it stopped working. We have one ATT account through yahoo, and the google apps account from our private website. I tried setting it up as a gmail account since the settings are the same, but get the error "cannot establish a reliable data connection to the server."

Motorola Droid :: How Secure Is A Rooted Device?

Oct 7, 2010

I have been rooted since shortly after 2.2 dropped and it broke the SiriusXM app. I love having the ability to do so much with the phone . My question is kind of specific to an application and general to the nature of a rooted device. I have been playing World of Warcraft for 5 years now and with the always present threat of being hacked and all of my in-game items, characters and account being stolen I added the mobile authenticator app as soon as it was available for Android devices. For those who don't know what this is, it is an app which you add to your in game account and will generate a key which you put in upon login that adds an extra layer of security to your account.

Android :: Service Connection Does Not Execute

Jan 12, 2010

I do a ((Context)thingy).bindService(...) from within the onCreate callback of an Activity. I've observed that the onServiceConnected() callback of my associated Service Connection does not execute immediately, but rather, is delayed until after the Activity resumes, or more precisely, after return from the onResume() callback of the Activity. I discovered this the hard way (through a null pointer exception) because I was unable to use the Service (I call a method in the Service to start a Thread) immediately upon return from the bindService () call.

I assume this is normal behavior, but I don't understand why, and I further assume that there is a good reason for it and that I would benefit from understanding it. I'm guessing that maybe the Service isn't eligible to run because there are fewer than 1 processes bound that are in an active state.(?) But once it starts, if I then start the Thread within, it continues to completion of its task, even if the Activity calls unbindService() and terminates first! I don't mind that behavior (it's what I want to happen), but I want to know whether I can generally rely on it.  I'm seeking some wisdom from the forum.  Please help me clear my fog on all these points.

Android :: USB Adb Connection Unknown Device Which Has No IDs

Oct 15, 2010

This month, I am not able to get a AT&T Samsung Galaxy Captivate to be recognized by my Win xp when I connect them with a USB cable. This is the same phone I had trouble connecting a few months back. With much help from this list, I was able to get them connected. (Win device mngr, red check mark, get ID, insert this ID in android_winusb.inf file and reinstall android sdk usb driver.) After the fix, communication was successfull for Aug and Sept (about 10 connections per monthduring a 5 day period). But this month the Win xp will not recognize the phone. The only thing that happens is that the device manager, usb, list is updated to include "unknown device" which has no ID's. I have talked to AT&T and Samsung. One person said that there was "an update Oct 5" and this bit of information got me introduced to Samsung tech suppor level 1 and then, after considerable talking, to level 2. Samsung level 2 said that I must have the specific USB cable that came in the box with the phone, I said that probably was not the problem because I have used this (motorola) cable successfully at least 20 times. Then all of a sudden I get a dial tone. So I drove the 20 miles, went into the owners home (while talking to him on his phone, he has mine to use beta testing) and got the cable. Results are the same with this Samsung cable. I am writting this long note becasue I have lots of time waiting for 50 minutes for level 2 support again. I am loosing hope that Samsung is going to be able to help me or possibly they recognize my phone # and know my problem is unresolvable. Does anybody have any light they can shed on this issue?

Android :: Service Connection Object Is Never Triggered

May 26, 2010

I have followed the Local Service example provided by Google, but my Context::bindService(...) always returns false and there is Service Connection::onServiceConnected is also never called. I understand that Context::bind Service() returns immediately, but my Service Connection object is never triggered. I don't know if these apply My activity is running inside a tabHost and I was wondering if that can affect service binding in any way. The Service itself may have a problem, but I can call start service to the same service with the same Intent and it works as expected. Does anyone have experience with this? Please help me out.

Samsung Vibrant :: Losing Data Connection Permanently After Being In No-service Zone.

Aug 4, 2010

Most of the time the data connection works fine. But if I go into an area with no cell phone reception for a little while, once I come out into a full-bars area where data normally works, my data connection never resumes. Once that happens, I can make calls just fine, but can't use the internet/market/etc. The only thing that solves this problem is to go to network settings, enable 2G networks only, then turn that setting off. That is a huge pain, obviously. Has anyone else had this problem? This was happening with my old SIM, so I had T-mobile give me a brand new one, but it is still happening.

Android :: Service Utilizing Custom Usb Device

Apr 28, 2009

I am looking to implement an Android service that will serve as the "driver/hardware access" for a device that will connect to the usb host port. Is there a good framework or example showing how I can make a service interact with this device? Its not a standard device that Android already supports other than the fact it connects via usb.

I am able to do this with linux libusb native code already but what would be the pathway to make this work through the android java framework?

I want to avoid having to make a kernel level driver for this that is why I prefer to have this implemented as a service for other apps to access the device.

Android :: Returning An XML File From Web Service To Device

Aug 10, 2010

I have a set of mp3 files on my computer which i want to be the server. Now i have a web service(Songs_Collection). This web service returns the list of all songs present on the server to the user.The user can download the desired file directly from the server.

I have a small problem :

How does my web service get the list of audio files kept on the server in the folder c:Audio Files.

Someone suggested that i need to keep the names in a "Web Content" folder, but can anyone suggest how should i approach it?

I worked out on this part . But now how do I send it to the client on device ?

Can i send it directly as an array? I guess then some seriliazation-deserialization needs to be done. Or If send it as an XML file then how should I proceed? (This is more important)

Sprint HTC Hero :: Device Self Service Lockout

Jan 31, 2010

Tried to access it today and it was saying that i was entering the wrong pin. I know for a fact that it was right. Now i'm locked out of it and it says to call sprint to continue. I talked to them for about 45 minutes, they switched me over to HTC for another 30 and then back to sprint for another hour. They had me hard reset the phone twice and it didn't do anything. Was on the phone with advanced tech for the last hour and they finally said to wait 2 hours and it should reset itself. Well, it's now been about 5 and it still won't work... Any ideas on how to get it to work?

Android :: How To Start Service Without Rebooting Device?

Jun 17, 2010

I've read the posts that state that there is no way to automatically start a service right after the package is installed. In my case, i have two apps- one runs as a service and collects data, the other displays it. the second app has the Activity which can be used to start the service. in order to provide the most accurate information, the service must be started immediately after installation. however, if the user decides not to run the activity immediately, then there would be a gap between the time the service is installed, versus when it gets started. of course, asking user to reboot after installation is one option, but not a great user experience. Any suggestions on how to achieve this?

Android :: New Service - Link To Market From Device And Computer

Apr 1, 2010

I just launched my app VLC Remote and was surprised to see that there isn't a way to post a link to the app on the market that works both on my android device and also in my browser.

-so I made a way, and I'm opening it up for all-comers.

What it does is lets you post an http link like this

http://and-download.hobbyistsoftware.com/android/download?name=VLC Remote&q=pname:com.hobbyistsoftware.android.vlcremote

If someone clicks on the link from an android device, then the link opens in the market. If they click from their computer, then it offers to send them a link by email (so they can click on the link on their device).

the download emails have a (subtle) advert for my app, but the feature is clearly your app!

details are here:[url]

Android :: Device Manager Fails To Find Android Debug USB Connection.

Jul 6, 2010

I have tried with zero success to get a USB debug connection from a WinXP dev box to a brand X Android 1.6 tablet. I believe I had everything configured correctly on the Android and installed correctly on the dev box, but when the two are connected with a USB cable NOTHING HAPPENS; i.e. Windows finds no new hardware much less a new USB device; therefore, I cannot then install the Android SDK USB drivers on Windows and do the debug thing with Eclipse.

Either the mfg of the Android tablet device has disabled USB debugging and just didn't remove the UI that appears to enable it -- or I've left out some crucial step(s). (The device manual is 100% Chinese and I'm 0% Chinese, so it's no help. The tablet is very nearly, but not, the model A84 7" touch screen 'laptop' at 'www.lezestar.com' in case this helps.)

On the tablet:

- 'Settings/Application/Development/USB Debugging' is enabled.

- Tried 'Settings/Application/Development/Allow mock locations' enabled and not.

- Has 500MB internal flash 'hard disk'

- Has installed 2G SD card

- Firmware: 1.6

- Kernel: 2.6.29-002360g4f8dbbb-dirty

- Build No: 1.7.3

On Dev box:

- Windows XP SP3

- Device Manager finds no 'new hardware' when XP<-->Android USB cable is connected.

- Neither USBDeview.exe (Nirsoft) nor USBView.exe (Microsoft) find any evidence of connection with the Android

- Eclipse Galileo (3.5.2) with Android SDK (for 1.6) and ADV Manager.

- USB Driver package, rev 3. downloaded using ADV Manager.

Other:

- USB ports on both Tablet and dev box successfully connect a USB mouse.

- Tablet and Windows XP have been rebooted often.

Is permanently disabling debugging something that Android manufacturors are allowed to do and therefore I'm trying something that can't be done?

If the mfg has 'disabled' debugging, is there a way to work around this; e.g. download a tool that can change Android OS configuration to reenable it?

Android :: Protocol Buffers (protobuf)

Jul 21, 2009

When using Protocol Buffers with Android (running in the Windows VM) I'm noticing that the first time I instantiate a protocol buffer based class Android lags for some time. When I step through it looks like it's spending a lot of time dynamically loading the protocol buffer classes. Is there something I can do to speed up this process? I haven't tested yet on a physical device, so the delay might not be as bad but in the VM it takes about 30 - 45 seconds to load all the classes and get past that first message instantiation. What I did was downloaded the Protocol Buffers source code. Compiled the.java files. Stuffed them into a .jar. Added the .jar as an external library to my Eclipse project. Generated the .java classes from the .proto files. Added the generated .java files to my project. Ran my project. I'm not sure if I'm doing something wrong it terms of how to reference external libraries with an Android project, but 30-45 seconds seems like a very long time to wait on a 2.6GHz machine. Also, I recently learned that android uses Protocol Buffers internally. Will this cause any sort of conflicts with my included .jar that could be the problem? I *think* the namespace is different but I'm not entirely sure. Lastly.  Why did Google use Protocol Buffers internally and not make it available to SDK developers. This makes me very sad knowing that it's all right there and I can't use it.

Android :: How Can Tell When An Android Device Has Geocoder Backend Service

Feb 12, 2010

According to the Geocoder documentation, the class provides methods into a backend service which may or may not exist on the device. If the geocoder doesn't exist on the device, theoretically a geocode request will return no results. However, how can one differentiate between no results due to there being no backend geocoder service vs. there being no results because the location makes no sense? My app already requires the Google Maps API, so perhaps this is a moot point; as a secondary question, does the Google Maps API always include a Geocoder?
