Android : Necessary To Replace Shortcut When App Updated?

Aug 3, 2010

I know I've had some apps specifically tell me that if I have a shortcut to them on a home screen, I need to delete the old one and replace it after an update. Does that apply to all apps, or only those that specifically say the shortcut needs updating? A related question is why would ANY app require changing a shortcut? Unless an update moves the location of an app, what else could change? Necessary

Nov 27, 2013

I have done many of reverse engineering for other electronics in the past, Since Im new to android I was wondering before even wasting my time if is possible to port, or built a rom from sources or a phone thatis NOT External SD built in to a phone that it have the external sd built in.

Making it short can I try to reverse engineer the android code from a Nexus 5 (no ext_sd) to other device that have ext_sd built in?

If is possible where should I be looking to start trying making some development on this as I haven't done nothing close quite.

General :: All Apps Auto Updated

Jun 14, 2013

I never check allow auto updating any apps especially google ones because by default they have that setting prechecked.

My Xoom Tablet has been running the older verison of the youtube app since I got it because I really liked the interface and don't like the new version my GN has. So I was just changing a wall paper on my Xoom and all a sudden BAM it reboots and starts back up. a little strange but then I see my notifications going off. [xapp] successfully updated. I was like WHAT ..I check whats going on and I see Youtube at 90%.. you bastard all my apps updated and the check on all google apps has been applied to auto update.

I never heard of this happening so i did a quick search on the Google and i only saw this thread.Google Play Store just auto updated all my apps on its own WTF - Android Forums at AndroidCentral.com

now i got to search for a old apk of the older youtube. or see if a factory reset will give me the old version back.

Jun 3, 2014

I have a Samsung Galaxy S4 running 4.4.2 KitKat. I tried to set the default image, video and documents directories to a folder on the SD card by going to MyFiles -> Settings -> SDCard path. I am taking photos & videos using the default app, not a 3rd party app. Although it is showing me the default is set to the SD card, the images I take using the default camera app all seem to save to the default internal storage /storage/emulated/0/DCIM/Camera.

Android :: Is It Legal To Customize / Publish Built-in Apps?

May 31, 2009

Like the Alarm Clock, Calculator, etc. I see that the source is available at :
http://source.android.com/
For example, the alarm clock I'm going to modify will "look exactly the same" as the built-in one, but there'll be a lot more functions. Is it legal to extend the functionality of the Alarm Clock and publish it as paid application?

Android :: Apps Built With 1.5 Get A Black-backgound Icon In The Market

May 1, 2009

We've rebuilt a couple of our apps with the 1.5 SDK (but targeting 1.1).

The Market seems to have a bit of trouble with the background of the icons. They appear correctly (with transparent backgrounds) on the desktop, and they appear correctly when the app is downloaded from the Market and installed on the device.

However, they appear on black (not transparent) backgrounds in the Market uploader web page, and in the Market application on the device.

It looks to me as though the Market has a problem when it extracts the icon from the .apk at upload time, with .apks built by the 1.5 SDK.

HTC Droid Eris :: Favorite / Necessary Apps - Widgets Updated

Feb 19, 2010

I know this has been brought up in the past, but last mention of this is about 3 months ago. And in those 3 months, there have been probably thousands more new apps out there for our phone.So, what are the favorites? And what are must-haves? This goes for games as well. Are there games that are still getting constant play on your phone?In my opinion, Handcent and Shapewriter seem to be my favorite and necessary ones. As for games, I keep playing Cestos.

HTC Eris :: All Things ROOT THREAD - Apps And ROMS Updated 05/06/2010

Mar 25, 2010

I have been gone for awhile with life stuff, sorry this wasn't updated. I wont be updating this as I don't have an Eris anymore, but if you want the best info head over to XDA Eris Android Development section. Or if your looking for Android News or other tech news head over to: Hope to see you all in the Incredible or Droid X section. Remember.... ?Never take a person's dignity: it is worth everything to them, and nothing to you.? 2.1 LEAKS & RELEASES & ROOT


I think it's getting confusing w/ all these releases. Let's summarize:Original root: Filename PB00IMG.zip. An "unofficial official" ROM that provides you with initial root. Can only be flashed from a phone running 1.5. Not to be confused with any of the "unofficial official" 2.1 leaks that don't have root.
2.1 leak: Filename PB00IMG.zip. Also an "unofficial official" ROM that upgrades your 1.5 phone to a 2.1 un-rooted OS. New 2.1 leak: Filename PB00IMG.zip. Another "unofficial official" ROM that upgrades your 1.2 or "2.1 leak" phone to the most recently available un-rooted version of Android 2.1.
** By "unofficial official" I mean that the ROM's are signed by HTC and must be installed from the phone's bootloader. We cannot edit and repack files to be loaded using the phone's stock bootloader, as we cannot sign these ROM's ourselves...........

Android :: Making Changes To A Built-in Android Apps

Oct 9, 2010

I've pulled and compiled the latest Android tree. Now I want to make changes to the Android's Browser application.

The environment in Eclipse is already set up. I tried creating the project by selecting "Build project from existing source", but it fails to build because it uses libraries not in the SDK.

Does anyone know how to import the missing source in order to build the Browser app, or even better, how to just copy the source into a separate project and use it like I was developing a regular application?

General :: Scaling HTML5 Built App

Jun 6, 2012

I have created an HTML5 'app' with a width and height 480 x 800 to be used as an android app.

Plan is that this can be scaled down/up for other Android devices to fit screen.

The app runs fine, but it is not being scaled to my device screen size. I have to scroll up/down and left/right on the every screen.

I have tried nearly every variation of the meta viewport tag with no succes (in the index.html file).
