I'm in the mood for a Good RPG or another kind of game like the old pokemon GameBoy games that you can play over an extended period. I just can't find any in the Android marketplace. Does anyone know of any good games like this?
Till some days ago, I was using mojo gba lite for playing my favorite games from Gameboy Advance (.gba format)...but after I updated my samsung galaxy fit s5670, running 2.2, to the official gingerbread update 2.3.4, the app stopped loading my .gba files...I just get a black screen, though with the onscreen controls still visible (but not usable), and my phones menu button also didn't produce any response from the app...after which the app just closes...
I tried other gba emulators, but none have worked so far on my phone (with 2.3.4)...
I have the Gameboid Lite app at the moment, and have been playing Pokemon Firered for a few days; now it's time to cheat. The app seems to have a simple way to input Gameshark/Action Replay codes, but I can't figure out exactly how to accomplish this. Any help?
I have the HTC Incredible and I want to be able to play Pokemon on it but I have no idea what I'm doing, I'm completely new to this. Can someone give me a walkthrough or info on how to do it? Also I have looked at other posts and have no idea what a ROM or BIOS is, sorry I'm a noob .
When developing on BlackBerry or iOS, you can deploy your application just by dropping the compiled code into a special directory, and when the simulator boots up it will check that directory and install any apps that it finds there. Is this possible for Android? The reason this feature is desirable is because my build system deploys builds nightly. I want the emulator ready to go when my QA team gets in the next morning. To do that, I have to write a script that boots up the emulator, waits for it to start up, then calls adb install and finally shuts down the emulator. It would be great if I could just drop the .apk in a directory and have it ready to go the next time QA boots up the emulator.
I want to hide some info (encryption keys) in a private area. I know there are a lot of threads on the topic and from what i can tell - it basically comes down to - there's no security just kidding. It seems like the data you have in your private area /data/data/com.company.product/files is only accessible to your application, so it would be sufficient to store anything (like encryption keys for example) in just plain text files there if you wanted. the big drawback of doing this though is that a "rooted" phone would be able to access that area -- therefore, no security. does "copy protection" solve this problem? if I "copy protect" my .apk bundle, I know that that makes it so that it cannot be seen by "rooted" phones in the Android Market, but what about if the .apk bundle got out in the wild (i.e. posted on some website, not via market). Would a "rooted" phone then be able to grab and install the .apk file (and ultimately gain access to the app-private area)? Could someone install the copy protected .apk file in an emulator?
I hate the lock screen on the Hero, I know their is a way to turn it off, but i don't like getting a message and then the phone doing something in my pocket. Is their a way to extract the .apk of the lock screen from the droid, and just install it on the hero, I understand that the resolution on the hero is different, but hate the current lock screen, i have to slide it down 2-3 times for it to recognize. I downloaded lock 2.0 already on the market, its not bad. but it takes 3-4 seconds on my phone to actually give me the slide to unlock screen.
Is there any possible way to install Android Emulator itself on the windows. I would need that for the Testing purpose? Note: I dont want to install whole sdk. i just want install the Emulater itself. that emulator is just like that a phone for the testing purpose.
Rooted my Hero, installed the fresh 2.0d ROM, I have a theme that I just downloaded. How do I flash it my hero? would this process be similar to flashing ROM w/o actually having to wipe? (saving to SD card, power off Hero, boot in recovery, choose theme, allow installation, reboot?)
Is there a way to get HTC Hero system image for the emulator?
Sense UI has quite some changes to activities like Contacts. So intents to select Phone number (new Intent(Intent.ACTION_PICK, Phones.CONTENT_URI) ) work differently from default Contacts app, and things like viewing Call Log ( new Intent ("com.android.phone.action.RECENT_CALLS"); ) do not work at all. Is there a way to test my code against Hero device, beside getting physical device.
In my application, I have a NDK native code that uses OpenGL 1.0 to apply a texture to a rectangle in order to draw an image on the screen. It is working fine on the emulator, but when I test it on the HTC HERO android device, it only draws a white rectangle without texture. Anybody else had the same problem? Did anybody find a solution?
