Android :: Android Emulator Copy Files In System Partition
Feb 10, 2010
I need to copy files to the system partition of the emulator. As it is read only by default, I use the command "adb remount" to have write permissions and I can then copy the files.
My problem is that when I close the emulator and that I restart it, the copied files were missing. It's very annoying because I must write file permissions that are read at startup of the emulator (platform.xml file in /system/etc/permissions)
I got a wierd problem with android emulator, I have created a virtual device through Android AVD manager (newly created emulator with platform 2.1 and api level 7), I have tried with standard settings and with added hardware parameter for larger (256 mb) device ram size but nothing changed.
I need to come files to the system partition to test a project (called haggle), but for some reason the system partition has no space from start.
aa a@aaa /home/haggle-0.2-android $ adb -s emulator-5554 shell....................
After a hard reset on my first Hero, the factory/system wallpaper files disappeared. Thereafter, I was unable to set the background for the lock screen to anything but the default. When I go to set lock screen background, the device reports "no media found".
Now that I have another Hero, I would like to backup those 22 factory background/wallpaper files.
1) Is that possible? If so, how? Does it require me to root the device so I can actually "copy out" the files?
2) Does there exist a backup software that can do a full system file backup? If so, please recommend one.
3) I have seen several file manager-like applications. Do any of these applications browse system files and allow one to copy them? (Is rooting reqired)?
4) Does anyone have copies of the system/default wallpapers? If so, will you please zip them up and post it here?
5) WHY did the pictures disappear after a hard reset? If they are part of the ROM, why did they not return after a reset?
How to format the second partition on an SD Card using terminal emulator?I have been trying to format the second partition I created on an sd card using the terminal emulator.I have tried all the normal mkfs, mkpartfs, mkdosfs all of them say "<command>: not found".Though 'dd' works and clears the data it also destroys the File Allocation Table.I was trying to format the second partition of the sd card so that I can still use the sd card on my windows machine and view the files in the second partition.

If my understanding is correct, tools such as CWM Installer and RecoverX are made so that users with locked bootloaders will have the privilege of using ClockWorkMod recovery. I myself used these tools. However, now that I have unlocked my bootloader, I want to remove the CWM they installed onto my system partition. I want to know where I can find it and how I can delete it? The reason why I want to get rid of such is because the kernel I'm using now already has CWM and I see no point in keeping a separate one stored on my system partition.
how to resize the system partition on my Sanei N10. I have read quite a fair bit but i am to unsure how to do it. I have downloaded so far livesuit but unfortunately there is only chinese on the Sanei homepage. As much as i understand i need some file from them.So far i have stock rom and the device is rooted.
I am using HTC explorer and a few other android devices. The main problem I face while flashing new roms is the lack of space in System partition! Is there any way to decrease the space of /data and add it to /system? Then I can use int2ext or m2sd script to move /data to /sdext!
resize the system partition of an Android JB 4.2.2 on cubieboard?
I need more room (it's only 512MB) to install apps.
Well, the APP disk space (nand partition) is very small and the internal "sdcard" too big.
When I install a few applications the space runs out and the system becomes unstable.
I need to increase the nand and decrease internal sdcard to gain more room to my apps...
Well, I started the process by using the tools:
1) To unpack/repack: imgRePacker_204 2) The image ROM: sun7i_android_sugar-cubieboard2-8192cu.img (Android 4.2.2) 3) To burn to flash: PhoenixSuit1.0.6 unpacking the ROM creates a folder named sun7i_android_sugar-cubieboard2-8192cu.img.dump
So, somewhere in internet I see to change the sys_partition.fex file, and search the system nand partition:
Code: ;------------------------------>mmcblk0p8/nande [partition] name = data size = 1048576 user_type = 0x2 so, I change 1048576 to 2097152 (2097152 * 1024 = 2GB)
1) In installed android, the system has only 512MB and not 1GB as show. 2) By increasing this value, nothing happens when I repack back to IMG and flash to the nand.
(all unpak, change, pack, flash process is fine ! )
I've tried to move Swiftkey 3 keyboard to the system partition with titanium backup pro but it keeps force closing, when I done this with Swiftkey X, it had worked perfectly without any force closing. My question is, Is there any way to move Swiftkey 3 keyboard to the system partition without any force closes? (Same with swype beta)
HTC Desire Z (Vision). I S-OFFed how it's described on CM wiki. Latest radio. About month ago I installed CM 10.1 AlterNdromadus. It worked until yesterday, when it unfortunately installed some system update.
After that phone didn't booted anymore. In recovery it says, that it can't access system partition and formatting is not possible.
I tried connect the phone via fastboot in bootloader, but it also doesn't work. Under windows I have it as unknown device and when I tried manually install drivers from google, it says that they are not compatible with the HW (under ROM it worked before).
I tried also install stock RUU rom (extracted the zip and deleted H-BOOT, radio and recovery) from SD-card (PC10IMG.zip). But it also got frozen on system update.
Here you can see error from 4EXT recovery and CRC images from bootloader.
How can i permanently store custom ringtones on root/system partition? if i store custom ringtones on internal or external sd, profiles are messed up every time i connect my phone in mass storage mode.

I want to hide some info (encryption keys) in a private area. I know there are a lot of threads on the topic and from what i can tell - it basically comes down to - there's no security just kidding. It seems like the data you have in your private area /data/data/com.company.product/files is only accessible to your application, so it would be sufficient to store anything (like encryption keys for example) in just plain text files there if you wanted. the big drawback of doing this though is that a "rooted" phone would be able to access that area -- therefore, no security. does "copy protection" solve this problem? if I "copy protect" my .apk bundle, I know that that makes it so that it cannot be seen by "rooted" phones in the Android Market, but what about if the .apk bundle got out in the wild (i.e. posted on some website, not via market). Would a "rooted" phone then be able to grab and install the .apk file (and ultimately gain access to the app-private area)? Could someone install the copy protected .apk file in an emulator?
I have an SQL lite database that I am trying to copy to the device. I was able to copy it to the emulator easily using DDMS however with the protection in the device, I cannot access the database files from the DDMS perspective.
I read many attempts here but couldn't find an easy solution.
Is there any way to attach the database (let's say named 'proj') and replace the currently created database proj in he device files?
I have some information generated in the Android Emulator, and the only way I can see to get it out is using the Log class.
However, you cannot copy-and-paste from the DDMS log window. This is really annoying as I cannot use the information in another application, for example, without retyping it.
Is there a better way to get debug information out of the emulator? What happens when you write more complex applications? What do you do when you need to verify it is writing correct information to URLs, databases, files etc?
I am trying to create a folder and several subdirectory within it on the SD Card... I then want to transfer files that I have stored in /res/raw to that folder... I addition, I want this to only happen once, the first time the program is ever run. I realize that this is ridiculously open-ended, and that I am asking a lot...
