General :: RK2918 Based Custom ROM - How To Extract Image Files
Nov 18, 2012
I am having some difficulties with customizing my rk2918 based tablet. I managed to download the original firmware and it is in .img format. Now I have managed to take apart the single .img file into multiple .img files, customized and rooted it with dsixda's kitchen and rebuild the ROM. Now my question is, can I somehow convert the zipped package back into the multiple .img files, or even into the single .img file so I can flash it with RKupdate or RKbatchtool? How to extract image files......
Is it possible to create a layout based on (background) images? For example, there is well know app called Appie that uses this picture as a homescreen:
I might be able to recreate the layout with a TableLayout, but this will be difficult to get it perfectly aligned with the buttons in the image. The default layout options make it very difficult, or maybe impossible, to allow for selection of the buttons on the image (especially when the buttons are in an arc-path). Can anyone tell me how this is done?
I have XTouch X507S it is MTK6577 http:[url]..... and I want to compile AOSP 4.2.2 to it, I've successfully unlocked the bootloader, and ported a TWRP but I want to know how to extract device proprietary files?
I'm looking for the best method (concise and easy) to download .rar files, with the ability to specify the download location namely my SD card, and a method of extracting the .rar files (some of which are password protected). I have an unrooted Droid x2.
I lost my phone. I forgot to note down the IMEI number. However i took TWRP backup of EFS Partition. I can open the EFS partition file through winzip software in my computer and see various files (like nv_data.bin etc). I want to find out the IMEI number from the backup.
How to extract the IMEI number from my computer from the backup of EFS Partition files?
I have this tablet Microlab Spektru 1.2 Ghz RK2918 , 512 Mb DDR3 Ram. Not sure if it had 4.0. Actually it's not my tablet, my grandpa' bought it, anyway he noticed that the Wifi signal was very bad and someone told him that he could use a micro-sd for updating.
So he turned off, put the SD and "installed" android again. after this android started normally but the Touchscreen not working.
Also I found some firmwares, but i Still can't get into recovery mode, the tablet doesn't have a Home button. Just Up, Down Volume and Power.
Anyone else having issues with the epic extracting zip files? Whenever I download a zip file it always tells me the archive is corrupted...doesn't matter what app I use to view it...tried using Astro and a free zip viewer app but the archives are incomplete...and when I try to send it to my pc to open it I get the same problem.
Guessing the browser is downloading zip files incorrectly?
I have an app with some 3rd-party jar references. When building in Eclipse, those .properties files in the jars are included in the generated apk with the help of ADT plugins. And the structure of the apk would look like as below...
I've been through a lot of these forums and haven't found my particular problem discussed, so I'm finally posting hoping someone can help... I'm American but I live in Istanbul so the the Galaxy i7500 I've got didn't even come with the Market app and support here is impossible.
I've been able to flash stock and custom ROMs but I can't connect to my carrier (Turkcell) afterward. I can only use WiFi to do things like get access to the market, but then I have to do a restore to use my phone properly.
Is there a way to center an image horizontally based on another image? Could be from xml or coded.For example one button on top and another button below (i.e. android:layout_below="@+id/button1"), but centered horizontally based on the first one.
I am trying to create a screen (in portrait mode) that shows 4 images (same size, intended to scale down to fit screen), taking up the entire screen, breaking up the screen into quadrants (a tall, 2x2 grid). This will act as a main menu type of activity and each image should be clickable, in order to take the user to a different activity.
I have tried using a GridView inside a LinerLayout (using a lot from Google's GridView tutorial) but cannot get the images to all scale properly to fill the entire screen. I get extra margins around the images and/or scrolling of the entire screen. I have also tried using a TableLayout, placing 2 images in each of the 2 rows. Visually, that worked perfectly. Unfortunately when using that, I cannot seem to reference the ImageView items in the TableLayout in my activity code (findViewById always returns null)..................
I have rooted the just purchased Spice mi-530 with "Root_with_Restore_by_Bin4ry_v18". However there is no CW recovery or Custom firmware in the XDA Threads.
I just know little bit of Android and able to manage with trial and error.provide the Recovery image or zip files. I have put aside my Galaxy note one and shifted to Spice mi-530 because it is fast and smooth. I was also able to see flawless films and videos.
I am about to embark on the ROOTING journey for my new Droid-X, and wanted to know if there was a way to backup the phone so that I could get it back EXACTLY to where it is before the rooting. If not, is there a way to get it 100% back to factory default settings? I haven't really customized it yet, so if I break it during rooting or BRICK it, I know there are UNBRICKING steps posted already, but I want to make sure I don't end up with a FUBAR phone during this process, or afterwards.
I work in IT and would like to setup custom notifications based the Subject line for an email or SMS message. For example, I may want the phone on vibrate but have any email/SMS with the string "CRITICAL" (case sensitive) in the subject use a loud alert sound and repeat every 2 min until I acknowledge or read the email. The closest thing I could find was having handcent do a custom notification on the SMS sender's number, but it lacks the repeat options. Anyone know of an app that can do this?
I have a widget that displays a set of information. What I would like to do is to give the user the opportunity to choose the background color/image. I would like to have a popup when the user is selecting the widget to choose the background. So how would I make the popup? And how would I apply the background dynamically?
I have a PNG file that is 32x32 pixels. I use 8 of these as drawables in a row for my app. These drawables are not in the hdpi, mdpi, or ldpi folders. I've found that when starting any of the 3 standard size emulators, the screen view with all 8 drawables looks pretty much the same.
I note that the ldpi emulator I'm using (QVGA) has a resolution of 240x320. 8 x 32 = 256, so since I can see all my drawables (and space in-between) I'm betting something is changing their size.
I've read the Supporting Multiple Screens document at the Android developers page, but I still don't understand what is actually happening. Could you put your own words to explain what is happening to the size of my drawables and how the SDK knows to automatically modify them?
I want to build my own custom view which should look like the Crysis-GUI.At first I designed a XML-based Layout and made it visible via the setContentView(int resid)-Method. Worked pretty well.But now I wan't to go a step further and draw in my Layout. So I created a new Class, let it extend View and overrode the onDraw()-Method. So far so good.But how can I still use my XML-Layout? I can't do setContentView anymore, so how could the same effect be achieved?
For an application I am working on, I need to display custom raster image tiles (not vector based, probably from satellite imagery), and I need to do so offline. I would like to use the MapView, but I cannot see a way to tell it to use custom, offline map tiles instead of pulling down data from google's servers.
I've seen a few alternatives, but none seem appropriate to my need MapDroyd Seems to only support vector-based maps. mapdroyd.com/ OSMDroid Appears to use Open Street Maps; I don't see any documentation anywhere stating that you can use custom map tiles. code.google.com/p/osmdroid/ There was a third alternative, but my post got eaten and I can't find it in my history. Am I going to have to bite the bullet and 'roll my own'?
