Motorola Droid :: Unnecessary Files - Safely Delete Them - Just The Files Not Folder?

Nov 17, 2009

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 :: Access Larger Files - More Than 1 Mb Plist Files - From Assets Folder

Nov 4, 2010

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 2 :: Astro File Manager / Way To Delete Files?

Oct 13, 2010

Now I am slightly new to the android game. Had a D1 that I traded for and I loved it. Used Astro File manager on there to get swype when it was available. I hear about this app and how it is great and you need it. I have downloaded it and I am not really 100% positive on its purpose. Is it just an easy way to delete files? Are there files I shouldn't delete?

Motorola Droid : Should I Delete Smoked Glass Files From Sd Card

Mar 7, 2010

Just got my Droid working perfect today, I was sooo happy. I am running Smoked Glass V5.0 overclocked at 900 mhz and loving it.

I decided to play with tethering. Got it going on my mac just great. I tapped the stop tethering and after Wifi Tethering shut off I pulled the usb cable without amounting, ohoh. I am usually so careful about this as my Mac get angry at me if I don't.

Now this is the only thing I can think of because then my beautiful widgets wouldn't work right stating it needs an sd card to operate.

Hmm, what's that all about I thought..yep went through the settings and the droid is not seeing it. Pulled and reinserted the sd card number of times. Soft reset a few and even Advanced restored from recently and still does not read it.

My Mac reads the card without a problem through a card reader. So I got this brainstorm to back it up, do a disk repair to see if that helps. No dice...

I erased the disc on the mac hoping the droid would see it and I could format it from in there, no go.

Finally I restored everything after formatting it on my mac and still it does not see it.

The droid just goes into a 3 time boot cycle then it says preparing the sd card, then it freezes and boots again finally to a working state. Of course without my sd card.

So I guess I ruined the sd card by pulling it without amounting? I have the insurance on this so I was thinking to Advance Restore to my status prior to rooting then walk in to Verizon and just say it stopped working.

Do I have to be more cautious and delete the smoked glass files from my sd card or just leave as is. I have everything backed up on my mac so I could just throw the restore file back on there if they replace the sd card for me or if I need to delete all those files to be safe and not jeopardize the warranty.Any thoughts or suggestions appreciated.

Motorola Droid X :: Moved Files No Longer Be Found / Only DCIM Folder Works With Photo Gallery?

Jul 19, 2010

I'm having problems trying to use files after moving them.

Example:
I took a bunch of pictures at an event, the created a folder for that event and moved the pictures into it. I can still open the pictures one at a tiem by navigsting too them, but the galleary app still shows the thumbs, but cannot find them.

Example 2:
I downloaded an mp3 for a ring tone, and while in the downloads folder the music player found it and I was able to set it at a ring tone. But I tried to create a ringtones folder, and then music could not find it, and just playing it by opening the file would not allow me to set a ring tone.

So how does this work? I have seen references here to folders called Media and ring tones, but I see nothing like that in the file system on my phone. Where does one put music if they want to actually use the music player?

Is the DCIM folder the ONLY one that works with the photo gallery? Is the Downloads folder the ONLY one that works with the music player?

Motorola Droid X :: Safely Delete The VZW Backup Assistant?

Jul 18, 2010

Is it possible to safely delete the VZW backup assistant?

It seems unnecessary as I have my contacts in Gmail, and it won't even sink now anyway...

I know I can just set it to not sync, but I can't stand knowing that it is there, doing nothing...

Can this be done without damaging any of the phones information?

HTC Droid Eris :: Put Files In A Secure / Passwored Folder On SD Card?

Dec 8, 2009

I'm sure I'm not the only one with naughty pics of my girl friend or other girls on my phone that I don't want the girl friend, other girls, or friends and people in general to see...

Is there a way to put these files in a secure/passwored folder on the SD card that the "Albums" or any other video/pic app can't access? Besides keeping my phone locked, I don't want someone accidently flicking through the photo album and stumble upon these. Also I noticed even switching the Wallpaper shows all the pics on the phone.

I have an idea of an app called "Stash" where you can move any files (maybe even contacts/texts) to a particular place on the SD card that the phone can not find.

Folder Directory - How To Organize Files

Jul 11, 2012

I've thought of starting to develop an application and one of its features is that it downloads some content (images, files, etc) and organize them into folders in accordance with site they were downloaded.

Well, the question is... How do Android organize your files? In Windows, for example, I could create some folders, one for each site, or one for each time period. But in Android, how does it work? Is there a system of folders like Windows? Or is there a totally different way to organize files?

HTC Droid Eris : Trying To Download Apk Files As Zip Files?

May 6, 2010

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.

I'm saving files in

sdcard/Android/data/<packagename>/files

the problem is that everytime i download the app to the phone - the folder and it's contents get deleted.

anyway to prevent that.

ideally i would want that to happen only when the user uninstalls.

General :: Duplicate Files In App-asec Folder?

Nov 10, 2012

I just noticed that there are some duplicate entries in my /data/app-asec folder. Some even with different sizes, e.g.:

com.dama.papercamera-1.asec (21.3 MB)
com.dama.papercamera-2.asec (18.3 MB)

Where's My Water is also there with 2 files, each consuming almost 60 MB. It looks like I could delete one of them. But why are there duplicates in the first place? And why doesn't Android cleanup this mess itself?

General :: How To Copy / Modify Files In /etc Folder

Sep 12, 2013

I'm trying to use the library RootTools to make root operations on android system. I want to make a backup of some files including in the /etc folder with the next commands:

Code:
button.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
public void onClick(View v) {
File exists = new File("/etc/gps.conf");
if (exists.exists()) {
[Code] ....

It's supposed that with the RootTools.copyFile I can make that operation, but It doesn't make anything. I see that in cat /proc/mount doesn't appear etc folder. I'm tried too with the Apache transfer file copy, FileUtils.copyFile(source, destination) but it seems that it have problem with the mount system, who seems to be in RO. I try too with RootTools.remount("/etc", "RW") but fails too.

I want to know how I can edit, create, delete, modify files in /etc /data... etc.

I'm testing this on a Samsung Galaxy S3 with an stock rom 4.1.2.

Android : Way To Load Files Bigger Than 1M From Assets Folder

May 18, 2010

I'm going crazy, I created a file object, so it can be read with ObjectInputStream, and I placed the assets folder.
The method works with a file smaller than 1M, and give error with larger files.
I read that is a limit of Android platform, but I also know that can be "easily" avoided.
Those who have downloaded the game Reging Thunder, for example, can easily see that in their assets folder is a file 18.9M large.
This is my code ...

now I have an uncompressed file and I can use it without worrying about the error "This file can not be opened as a file descriptor; it is probably compressed"

This function works well with files smaller than 1M, with bigger files return an
java.io.IOException on line "ObjectInputStream ois=new ObjectInputStream(is);"

why?
