what is the most simple way to get the latest version of TextSecure installed on my Android Phone?
My solution was creating something using the sourcecode found here: [URL] But the question is, how can I get it working. I've tried multiple things, but it seems like it isn't as easy as I thought. Currently I am on Windows 8. My phone is an Xperia S without GAPPS flashed, so no Play Store. Only F-Droid with FOSS.
when I compile android (http://source.android.com/download) it does not compile some source files. For example there is external/bluetooth/bluez/sbc/sbc.c which is not compiled. There are also other such files.
It's possible those files need not to be compiled. Or it might be that I need some special configuration to compile them.
Either way, if it is possible, I'd like to compile them. Is there some way to do it? Maybe some "compile_all" make target? (I believe the reason why I want to compile all source files is not important)
I am needing to make a kernel for a certain device. There aren't any source codes available for that device but there are for multiple clones out there. I am running Linux Mint Debian edition and i cant find a guide for compiling a kernel on debian.
I am trying to compile a kernel for LGE-P690 from CM ICS source but i don't have the device in my hand i searched all over the net for vendor files but i was unsuccessful in finding vendor files for ics but i found one for gingerbread so is there anyway i could perform ./extract-files.sh without device or can i convert gingerbread vendor files to ics if so how elaborate.
Code: make: /home/dm47021/Android/toolchains/arm-unknown-linux-gnueabi-linaro_4.8.2-2013.08/bin/arm-unknown-linux-gnueabi-gcc: Command not found /bin/bash: /scripts/gcc-version.sh: No such file or directory
I have just donwload the source code of the Android default Launcher here: http://android.git.kernel.org/?p=platform/packages/apps/Launcher.git;... But when I import the project, i can't compile it because there is a lot of errors. Many of this are unresolved name, package, class and variables... why? what is the problem? How can I solve it?
I wanted to run a helloworld application with the AOSP and see it in emulator. [ Not through Android SDK setup] I followed the steps in http://source .android .com/source/download.html and compiled successfully the full code from / directory. I could see contacts.apk, camera.apk all applications apk in ~/mydroid/out/target /product /generic/system/app. tried two things. Went to /package/apps folder. Took a helloworld application( helloworld folder which was created in android-sdk), and copied a 'Android.mk' file from Launcher2 folder, kept my new name for application 'LOCAL_ PACKAGE_NAME := helloworld' and placed the folder in packages/app folder and compiled at /. I couldnt see .apk file created for helloworld in ~/mydroid/out/ target/product/ generic /system/app. 2 - I went to Launcher2 folde /package/apps/Launcher2. I changed the package name for Launcher2 in packages/app folder in 'Android,mk' file and compiled at root. I couldnt see a new apk created on the new packaged name( i gave) under ~/mydroid/out/target/product/generic/system/app. I tried several times with changes in activity names, application names in manifest.xml file. Nothing reflects. But it is sure, both helloworld, and change in package name is getting picked up while compiling. I could see intermediate classes getting created. ~/mydroid/out/target/common/ obj/APPS/manifirst_i ntermediates/src/com/ android/mani --> manifirst is like a helloworld which i created and run. ~/mydroid/out/ target/common/obj /APPS /Launcher2_intermediates /src/com/ android/launcher Could anyone please share the steps of compiling a simple Helloworld program in AOSP
What I am trying to do is get either nest-api in PHP or pynest in python to run out of SL4A in order to control my Nest thermostat ultimately out of Tasker. Both are found on github, but I can't link to them as I apparently need ten posts to do so. So a google search for "nest-api github" and "pynest github" will have to do I suppose.
I have absolutely no issues getting either to run out of Terminal on my MacBook Air, but for whatever reading the SL4A shell seems to escape my understanding. I would rather have the PHP script work, as it has more options for things I can set, which I like. Where to put the nest.class.php on my phone in order for the PHP shell to reference it when running the example.php or any script I write myself. When I put both files in the sdcard/sl4a/scripts folder and try to run either from within either sl4a or sl4a's shell I get a call to undefined function error.
For the python script, I'm not sure how I need to import the module so that I can call it with nest.py at the beginning of my command line prompt and follow it up with the user name and password and so on. I've done everything including trying to create an .egg file, which I've since been told is not necessary, and that I simply have to put it in the /sl4a/scripts folder. That doesn't make sense to me though, as I needed to run the setup.py command on my computer in order to start using it, and the .egg file should be the equivalent of that on the phone, no?
So what I am looking for is the foolproof way to get either a php or python script running through the shell that isn't actually hooking into the Android environment at all, which is what all the writeups I have found in my searching seems to pertain to. Then eventually make sure that they are available in a way that Tasker can call them. I should also note that all this has been done in an emulator through eclipse until this point, as I didn't want to go screwing around with my brand new Nexus 4's file structure until I had the best practice perfected.

I need to edit my phone "service.jar' file. So i need to know how to compile and decompile ".jar" files. I think before the edit ".jar" files i need to decompile it like android apps. Are there any too for it like apktool? I try to do it with apktool but not success.
I have made a CM7 theme and I'm unable to compile it. I have investigated it a little and found out that if I decompile a theme and then compile it back without ANY change, it gives the following error:
Code: chris@ubuntu:~/Desktop$ apktool b xres W: Could not find sources I: Checking whether resources has changed..[code]....
how to compile FFMpeg with support for the Mali GPU or Generic Android HW acceleration?A good number of video players on the Android Market are able to playback HD video without issue, where some not optimized for GPU decoding are not.
I've attempted to build two different sources, one modified ICS AOSP and another from straight up JB AOSP. Both err on me.
JB spits out the following:
make: *** No rule to make target `out/target/product/devicetest/obj/STATIC_LIBRARIES/lib_driver_cmd_wext_intermediates/export_includes', needed by `out/target/product/devicetest/obj/EXECUTABLES/wpa_supplicant_intermediates/import_includes'. Stop. make: *** Waiting for unfinished jobs.... target thumb C: wpa_cli <= external/wpa_supplicant_8/wpa_supplicant/src/utils/edit.c
I'd prefer to get JB working, but would be satisfied with ICS for now.
getting a dev board for use as a mini pc. Wondering can you compile android on arm hardware or only on x86 hardware. If you can compile android on arm I will get a high end quad core dev board, if not will just go for a mid range dual core board. Thought it would be a fun project to have an auto android builder along with file and print server. Yes I know it will be slow to compile.
