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 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'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.
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?
some 1 extract all MIUI V5 apps as apks, or tell me how to do it because i tried extracting them before using: Android commander (from a phone with miui) but when i try to install the apps on another device, it doesn't install. How to extract them directly from a ROM file?
I have a sprint Samsung Galaxy S3, rooted...Int he past week or 2, whenever I am in an application (Chrome, Yahoo, GTalk, etc) The screen will sometimes randomly shut off. It just goes black, i can still touch and use whatever app I was in (I can hear the sounds of clicks, etc) and the buttons stay lit on the bottom. When I press the lock button it makes the lock noise. When I then unlock it, i get to the lock screen with no problems. If I unlock into whatever app I am running, the screen will almost immediately shut off again, or sometimes after a few seconds, or sometimes it waits until i touch the screen. BUT, if I unlock into a system app (messages, phone, homescreen, etc) the problem doesnt happen. I have tried adjusting all the display settings for screen timeout, rebooting, battery out, killing services, etc and nothing seems to work.
I am trying to connect to a network that uses proxy. I have entered the manual settings in the network and I am able to browse on the browser as well without any issues. However, no internet applications like playstore whatsapp or youtube works for me.
Any way I can assign proxy for all the applications on the phone.
