Android :: Reverse Tether Via Bluetooth PAN

Oct 12, 2010

We've been trying to reverse tether (using a SmartQ V5, android version 2.1) to another device that has an Internet connection we want to share. That is to say, the Android device is the client and needs to get access to the Internet through connecting to a Bluetooth PAN network.

We have so far been able to get root access on android, but have had no luck with bluetooth PAN. We found that bluetooth PAN isn't compiled natively in android (at least not in 2.1 or before), and to enable it you'd need to turn them on and compile the OS image yourself. Does this concur with others' understanding?

Has anyone had any luck in compiling an android OS or setting up PAN to do reverse-tethering with another device (say PC)?

Android :: Reverse Tether

Mar 24, 2010

I have a G1 and I now have an app named MapDroid BUT so slow to download the maps. If I could hook up my G1 to a computer at the internet cafe that has a ASDL connection it would go much faster AND I would be able to do something else beside watch the yellow bar slooooooowly move. I am not in the USA. One guy said the best way is buy a Bluetooth drive that looks like a flash drive. Plug it in the PC and my G1 should get internet. Not sure. I think files would work but not sure about internet. If the cable won't work then why should bluetooth?

Android :: Reverse Desktop Tether

Oct 12, 2010

I just got my first Android and love it after having used Win Mobile for years. However, there's one app I just can't seem to find.

I want something like MyMobiler (Windows Mobile - My Mobile)

Instead of accessing my PC desktop on my phone, I was able to FULLY access my phone desktop on my pc (i.e., I could completely operate my phone on my PC which allowed me to type and enter data faster and more accurately).

Does anyone know an app that'll do this (even a non-free app would be great).
I had grown so accustomed to using this application that I will now be lost if I can't find a suitable replacement.

Motorola Droid 2 :: Reverse Tethering - MacPro - Bluetooth - AirPort

Nov 10, 2010

My desk at work is basically in a cellular dead zone. No Wi-Fi either... But I was wondering, I have a brand new Mac Pro with bluetooth capability and AirPort (and USB, of course). Is there a way that I could have my Droid 2 connect to my Mac and use its network connection to access the interwebs? I'm not worried about making calls...

HTC EVO 4G :: Wifi Tether Using Bluetooth

Nov 19, 2010

I have an evo4g and rooted it. I run 2.2 and a month old version of fresh or so.Anyway, just got a usb dongle at newegg for $7. I plugged it in and it connected my phone flawlessly for audio. Basically for audio all I do is toggle bluetooth on on the phone, then.. hit play and music is coming thru my computer speakers. That said - I can't seem to connect for bluetooth wifi. Is there a different driver for the phone that I need to d/l somewhere? Going to the windows 7 (I run win 7 ultimate) it says about my phone under the services tab:
BRCM Advanced Audio
Handsfree Telephony Gateway
Object Push (Obex)
This leads me to believe I need a different driver perhaps? When I go to "Join a Personal Area Network" there are no devices listed. I try to add device but it doesn't find my phone.I know this is kinda complicated so if you dont understand my problem please ask for a clarification.

I am using a Droid X with the official 2.2 update rooted.

HTC EVO 4G :: Phone As Modem Tether Vs Wifi Tether

Jul 28, 2010

When connecting my Evo to a computer, there is an "Internet Sharing" option. I am curious to know, does this cost extra monthly? I know the wifi tether is the extra $30 a month, but will this charge me the same?

I only have interest in rooting my phone if it's the only way to share internet with my Netbook. Wifi isn't all that important to me, and seeing as I've completely and utterly failed at doing the Unrevoked method for rooting... I'm hoping I won't actually have to root my phone after all.

Android :: Reverse Geocoding In App

Oct 17, 2010

I am trying to Reverse GeoCode current Lat/Long data to just Admin Area and Sub Admin Area using the Geocoder class.

I am using the NETWORK_PROVIDER as the Location provider. Here is the code that I use and it works. The problem is sometimes it does not give me any location sometimes it does.

Android Manifest permissions I am using.

CODE:.............

Here is the rest of the code that does give me correct location from time to time but nothing at other times.

CODE:..............

Are there restrictions with the network providers how frequently you can request location data?

How can I make sure that everytime its run this can give me valid location data.

Thanks in advance for any insight into this.

PS: I have run this code on my real device running Froyo 2.2 (Verizon Wireless). Target API Level 8.

This is what I got from my debugging.

Latitude Longitude is always fetched but the getFromLocation often returns null for the latitude longitude data passed to it. So what should be the workaround? May be pass the Lat/Long info to Google Maps API for reverse geocoding. Will be glad to receive any input.

2.1 Update :: Reverse The Upgrade

Nov 7, 2010

I was informed of the new android update and the perks mentioned seemed pretty impressive. Upon installing the new update I regretted it instantly; the phone is slower, the layout is ugly and choppy unlike the sleek and smooth previous layout and the backup and restore is abysmal, all of my contacts are registered in the messaging (which also looks awful and is terribly confusing) but not in my contacts section. Is there anyway to reverse the upgrade, because I seriously dislike the new one. It is awful to put it bluntly.

Android :: StartLayoutAnimation In Reverse Order

Aug 18, 2010

I´m doing a layout animation on my listview where I fade the list elements into view using a LayoutAnimation with android:animationOrder="normal". It works perfectly fine and the elements are faded into view in top-to-bottom order. However, if I trigger a layout animation twice (eg call startLayoutAnimation before the list view has finished animating its views), the listview performs the new layout animation in reverse order; bottom-to-top.

I haven't searched online for existence of tools that reverse engineer the .dex file the android project creates.

HTC Droid Eris :: Way To Get A Reverse Landscape Orientation?

I just got my eris yesterday (posting with it now), and I am finding typing in landscape quite uncomfortable while headphones are plugged in (i listen to a lot of music). The plug is vertical and doesn't allow me to grip the phone naturally. So, I was wondering if there was a simple way to get the reverse of landscape view. As in the eris's physical buttons would be to the left while typing instead of the right.

Samsung Moment :: Boot Animation Reverse Engineering

Jun 13, 2010

My android is rooted. It tethers, plays live wallpapers, it does all the other fancy tricks it's supposed to, I can even switch up the boot animations without having to flash the internal memory each time (use the boot animation changer app from the market-- you can go into the downloaded folders and switch what screens are actually shown-- cut-n-paste), but how do you CREATE boot animations?? I understand the whole "slide show of *.png" files, I'm lost at the disc.txt file. Does anyone know what each set of numbers represents? I've fiddled around with this and every time I've put something together, it just don't work. I've got the droid screen followed by the Decepticon symbol spinning around, I've got the one that forms the Decepticon out of pieces, then goes to the matrix rain. I want the symbol to form, then have the spinning symbol. So far, when I piece it together the screen stays black. Any recommendations? I'll post the zip file when it's done, has tons of potential!

Android :: 2.2 - SD Card File Directory List Now In Reverse Alphabetical Order?

Jul 24, 2010

I don't see anything about this change in the API differences report at http://developer.android.com/sdk/api_diff/8/changes.html.  However when my Nexus One started running Android 2.2, the list of files created by the following code are now in reverse alphabetical order rather than alphabetical order (as they were with Android 2.1 and earlier, AFAIK):

CODE:.........

The line "Arrays.sort(fn);" revives the alphabetical order of the list, but sorts are computationally expensive and AFAIK the explicit call to Arrays.sort() was unnecessary prior to Android 2.2.

In addition to seeing this order change on the Nexus One, it can be confirmed on the emulator running level 7 and level 8 AVDs.

Sprint HTC Hero :: Accidently Removed Bluetooth Software That Allows To Connect Stereo Bluetooth Headsets

Mar 13, 2010

I was cleaning all the crap off my phone I don't use anymore and I believe I accidently removed the bluetooth software that allows it to connect to stereo bluetooth headsets. I can control the player with the headset, I can make phone calls from it, but when I try to play music there is no sound.

I was trying to reset the phone using RUU, but it reboots the phone and then says it cannot reconnect after that and the software shuts down. I can still sync with outlook, so my driver is not the issue. I am out of ideas.

Is there anyway possible to reinstall just the bluetooth portion of the rom?

Ive tried it a few times and i have 3 bluetooth icons at the top of my screen now which i imagine are for transferring files which need accepting. Is there anywhere i can to accept them or close them down?
