HTC Tattoo :: Why Cant Install .JAD Nor .JAR Files?
Ive read the specification sheet of the HTC Tattoo, and realized this feature:Java MIDP 2.0 - Yes
Then my question is, why cant I install .JAD nor .JAR files?
- ASTRO keeps opening the file, as some sort of text editor, and when uninstalling ASTRO, the phone tells me that its an unknown file type.I mean, if the phone supports Java MIDP 2, then it should be able to recognize the Java files... right?!
Android :: Programmatically Install Files On Device
Let's say I have 2 files on Desktop: (Note that I have another file than .apk application.)
.zip file (wich contains a large of data that .apk must unizp and do some work with it).
I want to plug an Android device and programmatically copy these both files to Android.
The application must be visible to user and the .zip file must be "visible" to the application, wich will unzip it and do some work with it.
With PalmOS, I use HotSync API. With WinMobile I use ActiveSync (rapi) API. How to do it on Android?
Android : Install-time Extraction Of .apk Files?
I'm writing an application and would like to have some files extracted from the .apk during _installation_ time, as the files can be quite large and extracting them from the .apk during the first run results in a noticeable slowdown which I would prefer to avoid.
After lots of experimentation, I have found one way to make this work, but I'm unsure about the "long-term" ramifications of this approach, specifically: will this actually work in android-9 and later?
The approach is to name the files I want extracted at installation time as "lib*.so", and place them into the appropriate lib/ABI folder within the apk file, e.g. the .apk contains:
lib/armeabi/libMyLargeFile.dat.so and at installation time this is (nicely) installed as:
My concern is that 'libMyLargeFile.dat.so' is NOT an ELF shared library. This approach only works because PackageManagerService only checks for files matching the `lib/ABI/lib*.so` pattern (which is followed) and does not check the contents of the extracted file.
This approach works for Android 1.6 through Android 2.2. I'm wondering if this will continue to work in the future, or if I need to investigate an alternate mechanism.
HTC Incredible : Need Two Odex Files To Install Nov OTA Update
UPDATE: Never Mind....Did the update without them and it worked fine....
Can anyone provide VzNav.odex and VZW_Skype.odex files so I can install the Nov OTA update?
You have to restore the Bloatware before you take the steps to install this update and I have all the original files I removed except for these two for some reason. I have their corresponding apk files but not the odex files.
Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 :: How To Install Apk Files From SD Card?
Please bear with me as I am a recent convert to Android having been with Nokia and their Symbian system for years It's soooo outdated compared to Android I have been trying to install both the Swype beta apk & the HTC keyboard apk files onto my X10 for the last couple of days. I followed the instructions to get the file on my SD card and when I go to try and install it (using Astro) the phone keeps on asking me if I want to install it . I have the option in 'Unknown Sources' ticked to allow installs NOT from the market. I was going to format the SD card to see if that helps but I don't know if that will lose any system files vital to the phone. Strange thing is that the ADW Launcher installed fine and I didn't get that from the market.
Android :: Install Files In File System - Samsung Galaxy 5
1) I am using Eclipse IDE and Android SDK 2.1 for my application. My application reads some data files from the File System, so using DDMS i push all the files in "/data/data/com.mypackage/" folder and run my application on emulator. I am able to see my desired output properly on the emulator.
2) Now i have Android device and i don't know how to push the files in the Internal memory of the phone. I have installed driver CD. But it only shows me the SD card directory.
3) Actually what i want is that the moment my application is installed and run it should read the data files from the file system. So there should be no added efforts to push the files in the file system.
4)Means can i pack my data files with my .apk file and when the apk is getting installed can the data files be placed directly in the internal memory(file system) i.e. "/data/data/com.mypackage/" folder. Is this possible ?

Media :: Music Player Can't Find All Files / Need Doesn't Use Native Index Of Files?
I have a Samsung Galaxy I7500 using android 1.5. I extended my phone with a 16GB microSD. I copied a big music collection (around 800 files) into a folder on this SD. Now the problem is that the music player can't find all the files.
I know that there are several threads about android not finding music. The answers are usually that the library hasn't yet been updated or that the ID3 tags are not correct.
I have checked both.
Btw. I can play the files using ASTRO.
In my opinion it seems as if android can't build up a library with too many entries. If I rename the files or put them into different folders, songs disappear and reappear quite randomly.
Do you have any solutions? Is there a music player which doesn't use the native music players index of files?
Android :: Writing To SD Card - Deleting Files On It - Number Of Files Relevant
I wrote an app that downloads web sites and all their assets (images/stylesheets) to "disk" and therefore stores lots of small files on the SD card.
Sometimes it fails to delete large amounts of files and afterward the file system is r/o. To analyze that behavior I tried to do the removal of the files by hand and then go from there. But that already failed.
localhost:~ mkamp$ adb -d shell mount [.. some mounts ..] /dev/block/mmcblk0p1 /sdcard vfat rw,dirsync,nosuid,nodev,noexec,uid=1000,gid=1000,fmask=0711,dmask=0700,codepage=cp437,iocharset=iso8859-1,utf8 0 0 --> R/W

The log contained nothing but the usual gc output and random WiFi status changed mumbo jumbo.
Anybody else seeing this behavior?
There were 6.500 files in that directory. Might that be the problem? I don't access the files with queries, I always have the exact name.
Android :: Access Larger Files - More Than 1 Mb Plist Files - From Assets Folder
I am working on an android app. Where i need to parse some plist files from assets folder. I do understand how to use assets in android but now problem is that file sizes are more than 1MB and so android gives error Data Exceeds UNCOMPRESS_DATA_MAX (2183588 vs 1048576). how to access such larger files from assets? Also I cant reduce a file into small buffers because i am just sending it to "DocumentBuilder.parse(in)" as a whole so can not use buffer. The error is on line: Document doc = db.parse(in).
Motorola Droid :: Unnecessary Files - Safely Delete Them - Just The Files Not Folder?
I uploaded about 50 pictures from iPhoto (using a Mac) just to see what they looked like and then later formatted the Droid's SD card, so the pictures were no longer there.
Now, if I mount the Droid via USB and view the file structure there is a folder named /albumthumbs which contains 50 files, presumably for the 50 pictures a had on the SD card.
To me, these file, unless linking to actual photos stored on the SD card, take up extra space in the phone's memory (not worried about the SD card). I wonder if I can safely delete them (just the files...not the folder)?
Android :: Using Local Files - Overlay Route Data In KML Files On MapView?
I am trying to overlay route data in KML files on a MapView.
The following code works great:
The only problem I have with this is that I don't need to re download these KML files every time. I have about 10-15 KML files that will rarely change. Also since it has to connect, download, and parse these each time there is a delay in opening the maps.
It would make a lot more since for me to save these as a local resource and have the URI reference it there. Is there a way to construct a URI using the geo: scheme and have it point towards a local resource?
It looks like file:///sdcard support was included in 2.1. The only reference I could find to it was at the end of this bug report thread. I am currently at work and don't have time to play with this yet but I would like to figure it out later. I feel like there are a lot of people on stackoverflow and elsewhere who would really appreciate a reasonable way to do this.
HTC Desire :: Checking Files - Deleting Files - Making Space
How do you go about checking what is stored on your phones memory and deleting content? For example I used dropbox and downloaded a 7mb photo onto my phone. Can't find it in the photos app or anywhere else. Going into SD & phone storage under settings doesn't do anything. It says I have 70mb available space under phone storage but you can't click on that to get any further info. Same goes for the SD card options.
Android :: Eclair Install Choked With Errors About Locks And Died - Leaving Corrupted Install
Followed the instructions in http://developer.android.com/sdk/adding-components.html for adding 2.0 as components to an existing 1.6 SDK, from within Eclipse.
It didn't work. Not by a long shot. Instead, it got partway through and then said that C:android-sdk-windows-1.6_r1 tempDocPackage.new01 couldn't be copied because of a lock, and similarly for PlatformPackage.new01.
It said to shut down running programs, but the only program running was Eclipse, which was needed to do the upgrade.
The cancel button was disabled, and the close box didn't work. Shutting down Eclipse killed it, but left C:android-sdk-windows-1.6_r1 in a corrupted state. Restarting Eclipse showed the Android projects with errors, no SDK, and a disabled Android SDK and AVD Manager (which means no ability to rerun the install).
Shutting down Eclipse, renaming the corrupted SDK directory, unzipping 1.6 again into C:, and restarting Eclipse made it as if nothing had ever happened, which is good. But it is not possible to complete the install from Eclipse, which is bad.
The dialog says:
HTC Incredible :: Phone Reboot During App Install - Can't Finish Or Cancel Install
So the other day I went to download an app out of the market. The download finished, but it seems my phone decided to auto-reboot itself in the midst of the installation. After the reboot completes, I go back to the market, reselect the app, and it's hung at "Installing..." (And when I say "hung," the market is still fully functional except that one app). I'm given no option to cancel the installation. Killing the market app then trying to go back in has no effect - same deal. Hung on install. Another reboot didn't help.
Is there any way to delete the install package and make the market forget I even tried in the first place?
It's Angry Birds (wanted to see what all the fuss was about), but the install seems to have failed in a way that any app install could have failed.
Android :: MapView Works With Eclipse Install But Not Adb Install
When I run my application on a physical phone from within Eclipse, my Google MapView works perfectly. If export the app to an apk file and install it to the same phone from the command line with adb then the MapView comes up but shows only the Google logo and grid - no map tiles appear. I'm using a debug application key and a GMaps API key generated with that debug key. I've verified that this happens on both the Droid and N1 phones. The logcat looks identical in both the working and non-working cases - no obvious error messages.
Android :: Files - Local Files - Storage
From the Android documentation:
"You can store files directly on the mobile device or on a removable storage medium. By default, other applications cannot access these files. "
I could write to the sdcard (/sdcard/file.tmp) and other apps could access these files, right?
I would like some local storage that I can write files to (and read from later) that are not accessible to other applications, and I will always have access to. The problem with the sdcard is that if someone plugs in a USB cable and turns on MSC, my application (and all applications on the phone) will lose (both read and write) access to the /sdcard directory. So I need something more reliable.
HTC Droid Eris : Trying To Download Apk Files As Zip Files?
I'm trying to download the SMS app from XDA and the guy has it up as a zip file. I download it and extract it, and it's a folder with random crap in it. No apk.
Then I read that I just change the file name. I'm on a Mac, so I change the filename and it verifies if I want to change it from .zip to .apk and I say "yes." Put it on my card and Astro still doesn't recognize it. It's list, but it's an icon with a window and a gear in front of it.
I installed the Vanilla email app, no problem. Not sure what the deal is with this one.
Android :: Google - Active Install %? Bug In Install
Yes we have threads about this already but we still have not gotten an answer AND I think it's about time somebody at least explain what does this number actually MEAN. I'm getting frustrated with the lack of transparency on this.
My apps used to be around 56% active installs
VERY soon after I updated the apps to allow install to SDCARD (preferExternal), then the active install count started dropping like a rock. Now it's around 39% today for my main app.
My opinion is there is a bug in the SDCARD install feature somewhere that is not counting those installs. We know there already is a bug with home screen icons if you install to sdcard you will get a blank icon until the Home app restarts.
Android :: Create Files Hierarchy '/data/data/pkg/files' Directory
I try to create 'foo/bar.txt' in Android's /data/data/pkg/files directory.
It seems to be a contradiction in docs:
To write to a file, call Context.openFileOutput() with the name and path.
The name of the file to open; can not contain path separators.
And when I call
exception is thrown:
java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: File foo/bar.txt contains a path separator
So how do I create file in subfolder?

Android :: App Files On SD
I've read that it's possible to save or transfer some (but not all) of the files for an app to the SD card in order to save internal memory, and be able to install more apps
Is this really possible? If so, how is it done?
Is rooting required? (I'd rather not)

Media :: HD Mp4 Files On EVO
Is there a video player that can play 720p MP4 files with AC35.1 sound?
If not, I see folks remark that most need aac sound, does the aac track have to be the first audio track?
I am trying to find a format that satisfies both a Tivo and the EVO, in HD for connection to a display panel.

I ripped my home dvd collection to H.264 with AAC audio and a .m4v container. My evo wont play the files! Is there a way that the evo can be made to play them?
