General :: Android SDK Installed From Multiple Sources - System Cannot Find File Specified
May 18, 2012
I've searched to no prevail. id like to start developing apps but am having issues getting the environment set up. I have the jdk properly installed.
issue 1 (main major ):
I've installed the android sdk from multiple sources, but when i try to start sdk tools, the command prompt flashes/ opens briefly and i get this message:
"Failed to execute toolsandroid.bat: The system cannot find the file specified."
Do i need to change a PATH variable or something...
I cannot get eclipse to run. when i try to open the exe file ( because there is no short cut icon...?) it gives a message about not finding a companion library... ive try to change the properties in the file that is supposed to fix it, but it was already set the way its supposed to be. this is not major as i can use a different IDE.
so im completely lost as to th sdk tool. I just tried adding the file path to the android sdk ( PATH variable) and it still did not work... I also just tried start the android,bat file and the cmd promt flashes briefly saying somthing about xcopy is not an operable command...etc couldn't read all of it... I am on windows 7 home premium
how to enable file manager (or any step) such as root explorer to view hidden files from external sd card? I set the enable view hidden file and able to view hidden files from internal storage, however I am unable to view hidden files from external sd card. I have moved some programs to external sd.
How to find list of SYSTEM LOCALES (language list that we see in settings) from ROM file system image/file tree (assuming that /system can be mounted as folder)? Which files/folders have this information?
Im trying to get the 3G mobile hotspot back on my phone and im using rubix. I have mynet.apk in my system/app folder but its not showing up in my apps list. The last rom i used was apex and i was able to use the terminal to push it but the terminals on the app market wont do it. Do i need to change permissions so it will show up in my app drawer?
I have recently purchased an unlocked HTC Desire. As you may or may not know, here in Australia the only carrier of the Desire is Telstra. However I use 3 mobile so that's the reason I purchased an unlocked device.
My problem is that my phone has about a dozen or more apps which are installed by Telstra and uninstallable. Most of them are 100% useless because I'm not even on their network and I'd like them out of my applications list.
I've had a read around and I saw something about being able to remove them by deleting the file and then uninstalling them using a command prompt program.
Would anyone please be able to give me detailed instructions on how to do this because I'm not sure how to find the system/apps folder and I'm also not sure on how to get the command prompt thing to work.
I recently decided on a AT&T Xperia X10a and also own a Droid 1 with Verizon. So naturally I tried to install my apps from my Titanium Backup since my move has left me with no 3g coverage. I have searched the web to enable "unknown sources" on the X10 and they say it is possible but for the life of me I can't find it.
I recently installed an application on my motorola droid pro but is unable to find it in my list of applications. However i can see it as an installed application in Manage Applications option. How can i get this app working?
I have a Rockchip RK3188 Tablet with Android 4.2.2, which I need to root ON DEVICE. Actually, the device was already rooted (using a Laptop via the adb bridge), so I already have busybox installed and I have one of my own apps in /system/app. However I managed to delete the su program (yeah great!) and therefore don't have root access any more. I know I can easily root the device again if I connect it to my laptop again, but that is not possible, because the device is at my parent's place and I can't go over there any time soon.
Therefore I want to root the device just with an app. Actually I would only need to copy su to /system/xbin. These are the things I already tried (without success):Framaroot (doesn't work, because framaroot does not support Rockchip tablets)
Writing my own app, which contains su in the assets and using this su for temporary root
Using adb (on the device) for a local connection (adb connect localhost), because if I connect from my PC I automatically have root (doesn't work because Android 4.2.2 has increased security on adb)
Start telnetd via busybox and then execute my commands via nc (doesn't work, because I can't start telnetd in a way that it ends up with a root shell)
My last idea is, that I could maybe gain temporary root access with the app I already have in /system/app. Basically this would be similar to the Master Key Exploit, except that I do not have to fiddle around with the apk and instead install it normally. However I don't know how to continue from that point. I know, I have special permissions if I have an app in /system/app, but which permissions are that? And how can I use those permissions to make /system writeable (and copy my su file there)?
I installed quickflasher Quickflasher from broodplank (i9001_Quick_Flasher_v1.4.rar) and used this image:
I Wiped data/factory reset and did Wipe Cache partition. However I did not have the option Advanced > Wipe dalvik cache in CWN recovery. I was able to succesfully install CyanogenMod 9 ALPHA (Build 4) with
I downloaded an official firmware of my samsung galaxy s plus from [URL].... .I want to see some of its stock apps and I have no clue how to do it.I've tried opening recovery.img with rar or iso but still nothing.It wouldn't let me open the .image file.So how am I suppose to open it?
My objective is to create a text file in an android file system.
Using java language, I am creating an app. It has a screen with a table of 3columns. Each time a user enters the table row and click on Submit button, the row entry should be created as a separate comma-separated file on an android device. So each time when the table gets updated with new entry and clicks a submit button, a new file is getting created on the device file system. So I am looking for the file connectivity to the internal device memory where I could open the files and access it.
I have done the same in Nokia mobiles using J2ME. But for Android, I am not able to find the device file path.
I am trying to find a Bluetooth speaker that can retain in its memory multiple devices (5 preferred but 3-5 is okay too). I know the Bose Soundlink does this, but it is more money than I want to spend right now. I have an imonster, but it only remembers one device at a time.
I found, a error..it was like i was going to install apk file..but it said " application not installed " and only one button below "Done".
This is happening with this particular app only..the app was installed before..i re-isnalled os..now when i m going to install that apk its giving error. I read in different forum that it could be problem with androidmanifest.xml.. but i m really dont know wht to do with the manifest file..and where can i find it..
2 days ago I tried to update my aunts sensation xl and told her that it is better to update its ROM from 2.3.5 to 4.0.3. So i created a google account in phone and added it in order to sync contacts....and after 2 hours, I thought that it has been synced...After upgrading device to ICS, and adding the previous account that i made before upgrading, I was waiting for contacts to restore, but nothing happend.. I opened the gmail account on PC and saw that there was no contacts. So the only way for me to restore the contacts is to find a way to restore them from Phone device. So,is there any software, either on phone or PC, to restore contacts from phone? or is there a way to have access to root folders and files of phone on PC to use a recovery program to restore "Contacts.db" file that was erased while flashing ICS?
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".
So after a failed attempt to upgrade from CyanogenMod 10.1.3 to 10.2, I was unable to access /data or /sdcard because both systems were encrypted. I ended up having to factory reset my phone because it refused to co-operate or let me access my files. However, before I did that, I was able to run
Code: adb shell "dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p2" > data.img and
Which appears to have copied the raw partition images from the phone (at least, they're the right sizes).
According to my reading, Android (and, I'm inferring, CyanogenMod) encrypts filesystems using dm-crypt, with a AES-CBC ESSIV:SHA256 cipher, with the key being derived from the password using PBKDF2. Knowing the precious little I do about encrypted file systems, my guess is that if I configure the image in cryptsetup to create a drive mapping, I can mount the mapped drive and recover the data from the images.
According to /fstab.herring on my ahem, fresh, install of Android, the /data partition is in ext4 format whereas the /sdcard partition is vFAT. So, once I've gotten through the encryption on the partition images, they should mount normally, right?
I know that dm-crypt accepts plain, LUKS, LoopAES and TrueCrypt device formats. I'm inferring from the PBKDF2 extension that Android goes the LUKS route for encrypting. Is this conclusion correct?
Whether it's possible to decrypt a dumped android image? I'm really hoping that the cypher information is stored on the file system and not on some key file that I nuked in the factory reset. If it can, in theory, be decrypted, am I using the right tools to approach the matter? If so, I'll continue fiddling with cryptsetup and mount, but no sense in wasting time if it's an impossible task.
i am new to android phones ROM updating . in forums for update ROM on android phone tutorials have two methods
1 . update by SD card
2. odin multi downloader
what are two these methods and both are same or different approach.?? and which is the safest way to update ROM? also can we downgrade android firnware with out problem?? and how to find the latest version by file name on android, what is the different between stock ROM and custom ROM?/??
I've attempted to flash a newer version of cyanogenmod on my phone (10.1.3 to 11). I'm using TWRP 220.127.116.11. I can not boot because I've wiped the phone (dalvik, system, data, internal storage, cache), and I suspect the ROM I have is corrupted but I can't connect it to my computer and transfer the file via USB because I have no ROM installed and can not boot. I also can't take the SD card (since there's non) and put the file that way. My phone is Oppo find 5
My root file flashing was successful, but installation of the ROM cm-11-20140204-NIGHTLY has failed. I assume the file was corrupted, but I have no way to find out what it is. I now realize my mistakes, like wiping the system unnecessarily.Is there any way to get another file on the device?
I deleted (accidentally) some system files, and then nothing happened, but i hit the restore or backup from setting and it went fine untill the loading screen, i mean it shut down then the first loading image fine and the next one doesn't load my system.. What can i do? (I think i know what software i shouldn't have deleted).
