General :: Creating Zip Files In Android Command Line

Jun 27, 2011

I noticed in the newer releases of busybox there's no 'zip' command anymore. I'm running busybox 1.19 on my Incredible.

I have been using this command to create different bootanimation.zip files from my phone but am wondering if there is an alternative command I can use from within Android. I've tried tar -cvzf but I believe tar archives/compresses the files differently and renaming the extensions to .zip does not work.

Android :: Getting Platform Files From Command Line

Sep 12, 2010

I can't figure out how to get the platform files for development, without running 'android' and starting the GUI. I want to avoid running GUI applications on my dev server, since it's headless and I don't want to forward X particularly. I can't imagine that it does anything more than figure out your platform, pull down a tarball and unpack it, surely this doesn't necessitate a gui, does anyone know how I can get the platform files without it?

General :: How To Install APK From ADB Command Line

Feb 15, 2012

How do install a *.apk from adb command line?

First I tried to cp the *.apk from /sdcard/backups/apps to /system/app (after rw mounting the file system of course)

I did successfully move it to /system/app but the *apk was not "installed"

then I rm it and tried:

install /sdcard/backups/appa/<package>.apk /system/app

and it copied the *apk to /system/app but still was not "installed"

I also tried:

install /system/app/<package>*apk but got the error dialog:

Code:

BusyBox v1.19.0.git.adrynalyne (2010-12-21 22:03:30 MST) multi-call binary.

Usage: install [-cdDsp] [-o USER] [-g GRP] [-m MODE] [SOURCE]... DEST

Copy files and set attributes

Options:
-cJust copy (default)
-dCreate directories
-DCreate leading target directories
-sStrip symbol table
-pPreserve date
-o USERSet ownership
-g GRPSet group ownership
-m MODESet permissions

My goal is to figure out how to use adb command line and also I want to install an app as if it were a pre-installed app. For example pre-installed apps don't show up as a removable app and stay installed after a factory reset.

General :: How To Send Email From Command Line Shell

Nov 14, 2012

I am looking for a way to send an email, preferably with an attachment, from a command line shell script (bourn/ash/whatever-it-is). No user interaction is a requirement.

It looks like an "am start" command might be able to do it via launching another app, and I've seen some examples out there, but nothing that I've had success with.

I have a big rsync backup script that I run to back up my device to my server, but I want to be able to email myself a notification if the backup fails, along with a copy of a log file. This script runs on a regular basis via a scheduler without any user interaction, but I have noticed that rsync has been failing recently and I've needed to re-run it manually later.

I am a pro Linux sysadmin but don't know jack about Java. I do bash, python, perl, and some C. My current script is just a sh shell script.

FYI my device is a Nexus One on Cyanogen 7.2. FYI I own the mail server here. I use k9mail as my primary mail app but the gmail app could be used as well.

If there was just a "mail" command.

General :: Application Shortcut With Command Line Parameters?

Nov 6, 2011

I always had windows mobile devices in the past, and like you must know, the old good windows mobile no longer exist... Microsoft killed it.

So I switched to Android. I really like android, The way it works is pretty the same than windows mobile with file browser, files system(Not like the Iphone without any way to deal with a file at all), .APK install like the .CAB on WM...

One think that I loved on WM is how easy it was to make shortcut by yourself, even with parameters. As example, it was easy to create a shortcut to Coreplayer to play an HTTP stream when simply clicking on it.

Like: "coreplayer.exe my_teststreamDOTcom : portNumber"

General :: Emerson EM543 Tablet - Call Lockscreen From Linux Command Line?

Dec 1, 2012

Running Android 4.0.4 on Emerson EM543 Tablet. Could not install Google Play so had to install Android Market. Market apparently somehow disables the Android system LockScreen. So, now trying to get lockscreen back on boot (downloadable apps, as far as I can see, don't lock screen at system boot, which is what I want). I got a terminal emulator and was wondering if there was a Linux command line argument I could use to start Droid lockscreen at system startup.

I thought I was getting close with this solution, [URL] ....., but it is for an HTC Amaze 4G, and I can locate the AdroidManifest.xml files in the apk files on my system (using ROM Toolbox Pro Root Browser). But, even if I could figure out how to do it there, that file would be changed in the very next update. I am looking for a something similar, just need to know the xml filename or a command line argument that could be used in a startup script.

General :: (SL4A) Importing PHP Or Python Script From Github To Execute From Command Line

Jun 1, 2013

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.

Android :: Run Command Line Tools?

Jun 7, 2010

I'm still pretty new to Android and programming in general, and I can't seem to get the command line tools packaged with the Android SDK to work. I'm running Mac OSX and each time I try to run layoutopt, for example, the terminal returns, *-bash: cmd: command not found. Also, is it okay to have my SDK located in the Developer directory and my android project in some unrelated directory when using these tools?

Android :: Application That Sends Command Line To PC

Jul 26, 2010

Does anyone know if there is an application that will send command lines to a PC? I would like to use this to either both launch programs and send other commands (such as changing the audio output on my PC). I am able to do this by creating shortcuts to the commands, then using a remote program (like premotedroid) to control the mouse and click the shortcuts, but it would be really cool if the phone could just send the command directly to the PC.

Android :: Application Debugging With Command Line Jdb

Nov 11, 2010

I'm configuring emacs to debug android apps. My problem is since I'm attaching jdb to DDMS I cannot set proper classpath (jdb just won't start when I try to set -classpath and -attach together). So jdb is practically blind - no entry point for class, no interactive debugging. How can I specify classpath when attaching debugger to ddms?

Android :: Launching / Installing An APK With Command Line

Aug 10, 2009

I have an interesting problem: My boss/the-marketing-team want to be able to distribute a separate version of our application to a number of 'partners'. The application itself would be *exactly* the same app, except that they'd like a partner-specific property to be passed to our web-service when the app runs (for tracking). The last thing I want to do is have 'n' builds of the product, each with a single constant changed (or a difference in the Manifest). This would be a maintenance nightmare, as well as the obvious issues you have when you have multiple mostly-identical versions of a product floating around.

I also suspect the Android Market would have a problem with "MyProduct for X users", "MyProduct for Y users", etc. Showing up for download. In a perfect world everyone would download the same app, and there would be some cool undiscovered Android feature where the Market URL could include "&vendorcode=X" that would be passed into the app on install. My question is this: Since the install process would be initiated by the user clicking on a link in their browser of choice (on the Android device), is there *any* way that the web server could be sent some 'device specific identifier' by the browser that would also be available to my APK? (In this way the web server would be able to match up the original install request and the first run of the app after install).

Android :: Ddms From Command Line Not Seeing Devices

Aug 11, 2010

I dont want to use Eclipse.

From the command line:

An emulator is running. adb server is running. "adb devices" lists correctly and I can see my instance on an avd in the output.

However when I manually start DDMS from the command line it just keeps trying to connect. I can find no connection config issues. (yes, it works from within eclipse and ddms shows threads etc)

System : Debian Squeeze

I ran update-java-alternatives to be sure java was set up properly for "Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_20-b02)" . Not too much of a surprise to seasoned Debian users my Java is now worse ... When I run ddms from the command line I get :--

Android :: Run Instrumentation Tests From Command Line (in Kubuntu)?

We are able to run instrumentation tests of Android from the command line on Windows by launching: adb shell am instrument -w <package.test>/android.test.InstrumentationTestRunner. This gives us good results. Using the same architecture, we are unable to run the same in Kubuntu. We have the same setup in Kubuntu. Can someone let us know, if there are packages with same name.. Then what package will the adb shell point? How will the emulator connect with adb shell from cmd line? DO we need to do any changes to do so in Kubuntu?
