I need to compile an application with system permissions in order to use target application com.android.settings. For now while I try to run my apk I get the error message

Test run failed: Permission Denial:

because package com.jayway.test does

Motorola Droid : Complete Guide To Backup / All Of My Apps - System Data

Jul 2, 2010

I run the risk of getting flamed for this... but I deem it a worthy thread, as things are constantly changing. I haven't found an up-to-date thread that has satisfied me yet.

I recently joined the Android community with my purchase of the Moto Droid. After a few days, I became interested in the rooting process and gave it a go... upgrading to Froyo. There have been several ROMs I've tried out, but I'm very hesitant to try more due to backups.

Will somebody provide me (in words or a link) the best way to backup all of my applications and data when testing out a new ROM? I tried Titanium Backup (and even donated), yet I never have successfully restored from a backup. Some applications and system data restore, but a ton of apps don't install, and I have to re-enter my email accounts (and appropriate sync settings) every time. This and the number of apps it doesn't restore (especially Swype) makes it not worth messing around with.

I read something about Nandroid backup, but that just looked like it was a backup in case something went terribly wrong with a ROM or something of the sort. Also, it looked like in the Simply Stunning (ChevyNo1) 4.2, there was a built in backup script... but I'd like to be able to venture between ROMs.

I want to be able to backup all of my apps and system data (gmail accounts, sms, etc), install a new ROM, and reload all of my apps and data.

Motorola Droid :: List Of Apps Able To Be Transferred To SD Card - For 2.2

Jun 5, 2010

I think it would be cool if we could keep a list going of which apps can be moved to the sd card (with 2.2). I'll start it, and submit apps and I'll keep this updated. Feel free to move to "All things root", but I figured it'd be a better fit here since 2.2 will eventually be released to everyone.

As of right now, I could hardly find any (only one to be exact) but I'll start the list anyways

Motorola Droid :: How To Generate List Of All Installed Apps?

Dec 4, 2009

Is there any way to generate a list of all the apps installed on your phone that I can save/print? I'd like to create the list in the even that I need to reset the phone at some point (and also 'cause I'm a bit OCD about backing all kinds of stuff up). I've reset my phone four times (due to returns for HW issues) and have never had the google backup process actually restore my apps for me (and yes, backup is turned on in Settings). So anyone know of an automated process or marketplace app to do this?

Android : Default Permissions Granted For Apps On Droid?

Aug 6, 2010

I have noticed in an application I wrote, in-spite of me not specifying any permission in the manifest file, the application throws up permissions granted, such as

android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE
android.permission.READ_PHONE_STATE

What is all that about? I was not even aware my application needs to write into external store, and I am pretty sure it doesn't need to. So why are these permission being granted when I never requested for them?

Motorola Droid X :: Google Sky Doesn't Show Up In Apps List / How To Get?

Oct 3, 2010

On my DroidX, Google Sky doesn't show up in my list of applications, but if I search for it, it does. I can launch it from the search results. I can also add an application widget to the home page and select Google Sky in its settings as the app to launch. Why doesn't it show up in the list of applications (The icon-based list you get when pressing the triangle-in-a-circle icon from the home page)?

Android :: Permissions Related To Dev - Alarm And Setting The System

Apr 10, 2009

I understand that userland apps on android cannot set the system clock. Wanting to know more about how the security mechanism is set up for the system I did some digging around in the source code.

/dev/alarm is opened R/W to set the system clock using SystemClock.setCurrentTimeMillis.

How the permissions work to determine whether or not an application has permission to set the clock.

I assume it's just a user level permission, and the write bit for /dev/ alarm is only enabled for the "system user" and not the "userland user" applications run under.

General :: Can't Paste File In System After Setting Permissions To RW

Jul 21, 2013

I can't copy the file 'hosts' back to system/etc. after I cut it out of the folder a couple mins ago. When I use ES File Explorer (don't wanna pay 4euros for Root Explorer..) to try and paste it back (with everything set to RW and having root permissions) it says 'permission denied'. I don't know what I'm doing wrong..

Android :: Application Compatible With System Assigned Permissions Automatically

Apr 7, 2010

I've noticed a troubling issue with app permissions. It seems that after installing, some apps that didn't ask for these two permissions:
Storage: modify/delete SD card contents
Phone calls: read phone state and identity
will magically acquire them after install! These apps do not ask for these permissions during install, nor do their Market pages disclose that they need them. After looking through many logcat messages during an install, I found this:
04-07 03:23:08.973,I,PackageParser,1016,com.some.app.nam e.here: compat added android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE android.permission.READ_PHONE_STATE

Digging around, I found this online:
Android permissions: Phone Calls: read phone state and identity - Stack Overflow. It seems that an app that is compatible with systems earlier than 1.6 will automatically be assigned those two permissions. If a developer is willing to make their app compatible only with 1.6+ systems, they can change their app's manifest:
<uses-sdk android:minSdkVersion="4" android:targetSdkVersion="4" />
and when users on 1.6+ devices install the app, those two extra permissions won't show up.

I bet a lot of app developers don't know this, and therefore their apps will seems to acquire those two permissions magically. Users will install those apps, see the two extra permissions when they inspect the app security setting and be very puzzled. They'll probably think the app is malware and uninstall it. I've contacted some app developer about this issue, so that they can (hopefully) fix their app so it doesn't look like malware. Unfortunately, until all legit apps are fixed, it'll be hard to distinguish amongst apps that have those permissions, which app actually needs those permissions, which apps need fixing, and which apps are malware.

General :: Botched System File Permissions - Phone Stuck In Rebooting

Apr 13, 2013

I was following the directions of this thread trying to install notifications toggles to my phone. Used root explorer. However, l changed the permissions on the wrong file or folder, it seems, as the phone just displays the logo and reboots, caught in a loop.

What files and folders has to have which permissions? How can I change them if I can't boot my phone? I don't have any mod other than Root, as this was the first I was trying to use, as I have to have better access to the toggles.

Android :: Market Fail To List All Permissions Granted To Applications

Oct 7, 2010

When installing applications from android market some permissions are not listed to the user, but are granted to the application upon installation, including the notorious "Phone calls" permission. When installing locally through "Package installer" the full set of permissions is listed. That behavior may be observed with many applications one of which is 'net.jimblackler.newswidget' (no offense Jim - I hope it's true there's no bad publicity).

This bug was reported as issue #9365 [0] back in Jun 27, 2010 but has gone so far unnoticed, perhaps because android market is not part of AOSP, which is why I post here. I consider this a serious problem as it is misleading for users and reflects badly on application developers and the whole android echo system. Hopefully this will get the needed attention and treatment, especially after all the recent noise around applications security and privacy breaches.

Is anyone aware of a listing of apps that require Android 2.1 to run (e.g. apps like Google Goggles, etc.)? I've searched the threads here at Android Forums and elsewhere and haven't been able to find such a list or site.

Motorola Droid :: Superuser Permissions Blocked For Rooted Applications

Mar 26, 2010

I was messing around with my phone being bored and went into the superuser permissions app. I was looking at all the entries that were in there and I know that it's just a list of permissions you've allowed on your phone. Anyway I wanted to see what would happen if I clicked on one of them. Well it cleared it from the list and I just clicked on all of them so when I'm in the SU app there is nothing there. Now when I try and get into one of my apps that require permission it tells me it requires root and doesn't have permission. So it looks like I blocked all permissions for my rooted apps. The question is how do I get it back? I'm sure I can just reflash a nandroid backup I have but I was wondering if there is any other way?
