I am having few android rom backup's from my old Xperia Arc S, Wilfire, Galaxy S. All were rooted and saved their nandroid backup.The need of hour is to retrieve some data out of the Roms. But I am not having any device at the moment.So the thing I wished to do is to emulate those roms and run them on PC.
I want emulate my current android system of my phone.I want have full duplicate system of my current phone (i mean filesprogramms etc) at PC with possible to use it (things like 2-step auth of google, and others).I think the way to do it is restore image of system that can do ClockWorkMod. But i dosnt know how use it on emulator on my Win7.
I'm working on a project that includes a test system for OEM devices. The supporting infrastructure is complete, however I'm having difficulties getting ROMs to run on the emulator. Of course the AVDs generated by the SDK work fine, but my next step is to run a binary intended for an OEM device. I understand that the emulator would require different drivers than a physical device, so I can't simply drop the same binary onto it and expect it to run.
Tweaking the AVDs generated by the SDK is about the limit of my knowledge. I've looked into pulling the system.img and other partitions from the ROM with ones from the emulator, but that doesn't work since the emulated hardware doesn't match what the drivers expect. I assume some modifications to qemu and some reverse engineering of the OEM ROM might be required to obtain my goal.
Assuming I have access to the binaries (but not the source) used by an OEM to construct their ROMs, what would be involved to obtain an emulator that matches the physical device, so I can run the compiled ROM on the emulator?
Is there any way to emulate an android froyo with normal kernel and everything a normal android phone has? Including a market and recovery mode. I want this mainly because I feel terrified by the thought that I might brick my phone flashing a custom rom and I am a beginner so I never tried anything complicated with it. So before I try anything over my phone I want to try this on an emulated phone.
I program and test using the Droid Incredible. The other day my friend downloaded my alpha version, which works flawlessly on the Incredible, but crashed on his Moto Droid. I just updated my app to use 2.1 api's instead of 1.6; maybe this will make a difference? I upped my min version requirements to 7. My question is how can you make sure your app works on all phones and not just the phone your are building and testing on? Is there a way to emulate a particular device?
I made my simple, custom rows and listviews. Right now, only clicking on the text of the row is valid selection area. I want the entire row, even the no-text area to be selectable. Where do I modify? Am I looking for focusing or selecting?...................
My home security system allows me to view the cameras from a browser. But, it only works from an internet explorer browser. (Even on my pc, I have to use IE for this, it won't work with fire fox or chrome). None of the ip camera apps available so far work with my q-see camera system. Is there any way to "emulate" internet explorer on the android?. I don't anticipate microsoft will be making an android-version anytime soon.
How can I emulate an onUpgrade call for my SQLiteOpenHelper class? I have tried changing the version number in my SQLiteOpenHelper class and versionCode in manifest but onUpgrade is not called. Any idea? I need to check my onUpgrade code before upload it to the market, I don't want my app's users get a buggy upgrade.
I am trying to use the android dev emulator to create a virtual phone with the same spec as the droid. I am using the WVGA 854 profile, High density (240) and scaling the emulator screen to 3.7 inch on launch. Problem is it seems to be emulating it like it has WVGA 854 resolution but with a medium or low density screen, as the icons are teeny tiny and the whole thing looks wrong. I'm sure the droid does have teeny tiny icons and apps, can anyone tell me where i am going wrong?
I have a TabActivity with several tabs. Each tab corresponds to a specific view, and those views may further switch to other views. For example, one of my tabs displays RSS feed list, after user clicks one of the RSS feed, it will switch to a view displaying a list of articles, and after user clicks one of the titles, a full article view will be displayed.I'm going to add support for "back" button in my application. For instance, in a full article view, after user presses the "back" button, it should switch back to the article list view. And if user presses it the "back" button again, my application should switch back to the feed list view.My idea is to maintain a Stack<View> during navigation, and every time user presses the "back" button, the program will pop a View out of the stack, and set it as the current view. But I would like to know how to set current view in TabHost.
I looked around and although there are many related questions I didn't see one that answers my exact question:
I would like to create an app that runs in the background that provides the exact same functionality as the hard coded 'Back' button in all cases.
The reason? I (for example) have a Droid X, and it is BIG. it makes it extremely hard to use one-handed and having a swipe gesture function as a back button (like in Palm Pre for example) would greatly increase the ease of use.
as far as I'm concerned the app could just be one simple class that contains: 1) a listener for the 'back' swipe 2) a call to the physical hard button itself
Is this possible? are there built in APIs for the hard coded buttons that would allow me to call them without actually pressing them?
Again - I'm not interested in overriding the button, I'm interested in making a software call to it - or failing that, in emulating it's behavior in any and all states and other apps!
Please forgive the naivete of this post. I am a very novice programmer and really I just want to know whether this is possible before I start to devote myself to trying to build it.
So PSX4Droid finally got released from the clutches of Google Market about an hour ago. Only problem now is I can't seem to get any roms to work. I set up a PSXROMS folder on my SD card, and my first d/l was Metal Gear Solid disc 1 and 2. I got them from here PSX ISO Download Section. So I downloaded the .rar, unzipped to get the .bin (says it's compatible), open the emulator, the emulator sees the files in the folder, I click it, it refreshes the rom screen. The emulator doesn't start. Am I doing something wrong? Wrong file type?
Maybe i'm not really seeing anything that stick out to me but could someone please give me an answer.
Whats the difference between a 2.0.1 ROM and 2.1 ROM?
I've been rooted for awhile and always stuck with either AdamZ ROM or Pete's Bugless Beast and they were all based off of 2.0.1. Is there something special I need to do in order to run a ROM based off of 2.1?
I have a program that should work on Android 1.5, but when it's run on newer devices with higher resolution screens, it should support the full resolution and not emulate a lower resolution screen. As far as I can tell from the documentation, this should be simple.
I just specify
The problem is that if I tell Eclipse to compile for 1.5, it refuses to accept this. It reports an error (targetSdkVersion is an unknown tag) and refuses to compile or run. If I tell it to compile for 1.6 it works fine, of course. But if I then try to install on a 1.5 AVD, the program immediately crashes with a java.lang.VerifyError. I'm clearly missing something simple. How do I get it to compile an apk that works under 1.5, but still includes the targetSdkVersion tag?
I'm currently running Warm TpT and I love it, and just wanted to know what the difference is between ROMS w/ Sense opposed to ROMS w/o Sense. I live in an area w/ 4g and am quite fond of it so I've stuck w/ ROMS running sense. Also, are there any Senseless ROMS that have 4g?
i have a ZTE (kis lite v790)..I've found ROMs for it but they are from other providers. the signed update.zip checks if your phone is from the right provider and exits if it doesn't match. All the rooting attempts on my phone have failed and if i edit the update.zipMETA-INFcomgoogleandroidupdater-script it fails the signature check.how on earth am i supposed to update my phone?
I have fully converted European HTC One with stock 4.2.2 GE, but my bootloader is unlocked and i have CWRM recoery. I have windows 8.1 onmy desktop so can't relock and flash GE recovery. So I can't get OTA from android settings.
So I made a backup tried to flash this .zip through CWMR: [URL]...
recovery rejected install - some error in prop file
When I rebooted my phone and plug to PC - it didn't connected. I tried to charge from wall - not working too. USB just does not work.
I tried to do factory reset, to restore backup, to flash GE 4.2, to flash RUU 4.3 - nothing
But it works with Cyanogenmod 10.1! Storage, charging - all works.
Is there a flashable zip or system edit so that cloud works on CM9 and AOKP? If not what needs to be done to make it work. I have an Xperia play, but was looking for a universal zip for all CM9 devices.
I downloaded an app called Flashify. From the app, I downloaded android 4.4 KitKat because I wanted to update my ROM. When I booted my phone into recovery (stock <3e>), I clicked on install from SD card, installed the .zip file but I got an error...
"E:failed to verify whole-signature" "E:signature verification failed" "E:update fail and delete temp files" "formatting /cache..." Instalation aborted.
Now, if I try to set up my phone again, I'll get as far as the welcome screen and it will always say:
