Android :: Home Screen Picture Shortcut

Apr 14, 2010

I'm tired of carrying (and misplacing) my stupid drivers license just so I can show it to cashiers at Denny's or wherever they don't accept debit. But it takes too long to open up gallery and sort through all of my photos. If I could set it up as an icon on my home screen, or even the folder it is in as an icon so i could quickly pull it up, that would be perfect.

Android :: Programmatically Delete A Home-screen Shortcut

Apr 10, 2009

I have some questions related to Android's home-screen contents:

1) Is there a way to programmatically delete a home-screen shortcut on Android? I know that it can be done manually but I want to do it in code.

2) Is there a directory where all the contents of the home-screen are stored and, if there is, is there a way to update the contents of this directory?

Android :: Adding His Application To The Add To Home Screen - Shortcut Section

Jul 22, 2010

In my android application, I create shortcuts by code to some activities within my application. I do this feature by using the broadcast:

intent.setAction("com.android.launcher.action.INSTALL_SHORTCUT");sendBroadcast(intent);

And that's cool, that really work!

Now I would like to do something different: I have seen that some actions can "register" somewhere to be added in the Android menu, when you long press on the Home like this one:

http://www.androidtapp.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/02/UltimateFaves-Add-Home-Screen-Shortcut.jpg

So my main question is the next one:

How is that possible to register for this menu. I guess there is some line to add in the manifest, but cannot see where to do that!

There is a secondary question: once i will have succeed doing that, may I add a different number of shortcuts in my menu ( imagine That I would like to do that for a multi-account twitter client, I would like to see a different for each twitter account in this list.) So the number of shortcut is programmaticaly computed.

Android :: Any Application For Placing Macro Shortcut On Home Screen?

Mar 13, 2010

Does anyone know of any application that allows placing a shortcut on the home screen to a sequence of actions? That one shortcut would, for instance:

Set WiFi Off
Set the Car Mode app on
Set the Disable Car Screen app on
Toggle from 3G to 2G

or another macro shortcut could:
Turn the LockRinger app off
Switch to Silent mode
Turn WiFi on

I've been searching the app market but, so far, I haven't discovered anything offering that sort of handy functionality.

Android :: Widget Layout Matched With Standard Home Screen Shortcut?

Oct 30, 2009

With a home screen widget I'm trying to layout. Basically, I'm trying to layout my widget so it matched a standard home screen application shortcut perfectly. Basically, at this point, I'm about ~2px off. Has anyone got this to match up just right? Should I be able to find this layout in the source somewhere? Here's my layout thus far:

General :: Run ADB Command From Home Screen Shortcut?

May 14, 2013

The backstory first:

I have a Nexus 10. I like to plug it into my TV via HDMI and watch videos or play games, or what have you. Since the aspect ratio doesn't match the TV I get black bars on the sides. In a command line, one can type

Code:
am display-size 2560x1440

to change the resolution of the screen and get rid of the black bars on the TV completely (at the cost of adding black bars on the top and bottom of the tablet.)

Code:
am display-size reset
Sets it back to normal.

Rather than typing this into a terminal /every time/ I want to do this, is there a simple widget or app that will let me set up a shortcut on the homescreen that I can just click on to toggle instead?

Android :: Strange Force Close On Acore When Adding A Home Screen Shortcut

Jan 2, 2010

I want to add home screen shortcuts to individual chat rooms, in my app.

Here's my code to do so:

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

When I go to add the shortcut to my home screen, I get a Force Close, not on my own process, but on com.android.acore(!). I've run the debugger and verified that my code gets executed all the way to the call to finish().

If I do this instead for the EXTRA_SHORTCUT_ICON:

intent.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_SHORTCUT_ICON, R.drawable.icon);

It works fine and places the shortcut, and the shortcut behaves correctly -- but of course the shortcut has the stock Android icon, not mine, since this isn't the proper way to specify the icon.

When I look at the source code of other apps that have done this, and at the one example of it in the official Android reference area, my code looks identical. My icon's a standard 48x48 png that I use for the app's main icon, without problems. I've verified this problem on an emulator running stock 1.6, haven't tested other versions.

Android :: Pack A Config File Into Apk Package

Apr 21, 2010

I need to save these configurations into a file, and in my app I could change these configurations. In other words, I need a file to take all my config data, and in my app, I could read/write this file as I want.

I've searched document and mailing list archive, and have not found the exact solution. 1. SharedPreferences could not solve : It could only do with simple key/value pairs, my configuration data is more complex . 2. file in /assets , /res/raw could not solve: It seems that the file in these position would be read only

I've found a way, it almost solved my problem, but still not. Our code could deal with the file in /data/data/package-name/files on the target file system, this is good to me, but how could I put my file in this directory after my app has been installed? My app need to read these configurations when it starts.

My question is how could I pack my data file into my apk package, and then my app could read/write this file when it is run.

General :: Specify Kernel Module Load Path In Config File?

Sep 28, 2011

I needed a tun.ko module for my kernel, so I tried compiling my own kernel.

The kernel did build OK, and also boots OK, the only problem is that I cannot load any modules.

It seemes, that the module tools (insmod, modprobe etc) looks for the modules in /lib/modules, and I have them in /system/lib/modules, so my wifi does not work, as I cannot load the module.

Where I can specify the kernel module load path in the .config file?

Example:

# cd /system/lib/modules
# ls -l
-rw-r--r-- root root 315403 2008-08-01 14:00 bcm4329.ko
-rw-r--r-- root root 211573 2008-08-01 14:00 tun.ko
# modprobe bcm4329.ko

[Code] .....

General :: Android Won't Boot After Modifying System File

Sep 28, 2013

I have a HUAWEI Y300-0100, and it comes with a funny feature: every time it can't connect to WIFI a popup message appears saying that if you switch to data plan charges may apply.

I am constantly switching between WIFI/no-WIFI zones so that message really bothered me, and I searched a way to disable it.

Presumably, the only way to do that is by modifying a system file called "build.prop". I already had my phone rooted so doing so wasn't very hard.I used Jota+ to change a setting from "true" to "false" (ro.config.hw******), and saved the file in the root of the SD card. Then, with ES File Explorer, I renamed the "build.prop" in /system to "build.prop.bak" and copied there the "build.prop" I previously saved in the SD root.All seemed to be fine, except that after rebooting my phone it could not get past the HUAWEI logo.

Android recovery mode seems to work, but I don't know how to use a lot of its options nor I want to do a Factory Reset if there's a better alternative.Is there a way to modify system files before booting Android? I really would like to try to delete the "build.prop" file and rename the "build.prop.bak" back to "build.prop".
