I want to know how to get the ringtone,audio files in the device and I want set them as alarm. I am working in the code to set the alarm and I want to know how to retreive audio or ringtones from the device.
After a hard reset on my first Hero, the factory/system wallpaper files disappeared. Thereafter, I was unable to set the background for the lock screen to anything but the default. When I go to set lock screen background, the device reports "no media found".
Now that I have another Hero, I would like to backup those 22 factory background/wallpaper files.
1) Is that possible? If so, how? Does it require me to root the device so I can actually "copy out" the files?
2) Does there exist a backup software that can do a full system file backup? If so, please recommend one.
3) I have seen several file manager-like applications. Do any of these applications browse system files and allow one to copy them? (Is rooting reqired)?
4) Does anyone have copies of the system/default wallpapers? If so, will you please zip them up and post it here?
5) WHY did the pictures disappear after a hard reset? If they are part of the ROM, why did they not return after a reset?
I need to copy files to the system partition of the emulator. As it is read only by default, I use the command "adb remount" to have write permissions and I can then copy the files.
My problem is that when I close the emulator and that I restart it, the copied files were missing. It's very annoying because I must write file permissions that are read at startup of the emulator (platform.xml file in /system/etc/permissions)
I've been trying to understand how to get data about all the audio files in the device using MediaAudio but unfortunately the documentation is far from clear. Also, thereīs almost nothing about it on the forum right now and I couldnīt find good resources over the internet.
Iīve seen pretty quick and objective examples on how to access the main information from the containers but I couldnīt find in any place how I could get the names of the tracks (MediaStore.Audio.AudioColumns doesnīt have an specific constant for it) and the most important, how I could retrieve the path for the media (audio file in this case) Iīve found using the info on MusicStore.Audio.
am I missing something here? It seems it should be so easy but I canīt find the info! Also if I change any data on the container, will this data be also changed in the real file as well?

Ok so I see a lot of people saying they are having problems with video playback when importing from their SD Card but Im having the opposite problem.
I just switched over from the Metro PCS Samsung Code which is a Windows 6 phone to EVO and I put my SD Card in my EVO. All my music files play and the mp4 video files play but the audio from the mp4 video files dont. Does anyone have advice on how to fix this?
Still waiting for my Desire to arrive, but I read on coolsmartphone that people were having difficulty with the BBC iplayer. I was under the impression that the Desire handeled flash. does anyone have any comments? Can you listed / watch the embedded audio/video files on the BBC wedsites?
I've Set up wowza streaming server in my ubuntu box for RTSP streaming video files. The video gets stream perfectly when I've Totem video player at client side. The same URL or video is failing to work on android device and the application that tries to access that RTSP URL breaks with Mediaplayer error (1,-1).
I connected my phone via USB to my RR sport to upload audio files to the RR hard drive. However, I keep getting connection error. Apparently my device is not being recognized as a storage. I did the unmount thinking. Also, I am wondering how I can play audio from my phone through the RR audio system. RR is 2010.
So i realized today on my way home from work that my cars Clarion CD deck has a USB connector for hooking up thumb drives to play music off of them. I figured this HAS to work with the G1 and it does!I was able to hook the G1 charge and play the music off the SD card through the G1 with ease.Just set the G1 to act as a usb drive, and you can play music and charge your phone via USB while driving.So keep that in mind if you're going to be getting a new car CD player, get one with USB (pretty common on new CD players) and you'll be glad you did.
I am wondering how you all get your HD video files to your Android device. I have a library of 720p MP4 (x264/AAC) videos on optical discs (CD/DVD). The files are 1-4GB each. I'd like to casually select a video and watch it on my Galaxy Nexus. The phone is certainly capable of playing the videos smoothly and at full 720p resolution. However, it's getting the files to the device in a timely fashion that's the problem. Here's what I've tried so far:I can load a disc into my desktop, copy the files to a local file server, and then transfer to my phone using SFTP or Samba/CIFS. The phone's wifi speed seems to cap out at about 1MB/sec on my 802.11n network so it would take 30 minutes to transfer one file! The phone's storage would fill up quickly too, but I could always delete old ones after I watch them. With such a slow transfer, I'd really have to plan in advance - not to mention the multiple steps to copy from disc to desktop to server to phone. I have tried several different apps and protocols. All seem to cap out at about 10Mbit/sec while a laptop gets 50-60Mbit/sec easy. My previous Android devices from different brands also had this limit so perhaps it's all that's supported by those tiny radios?
I prefer to use Linux on the desktop but there don't seem to be good solutions for MTP and PTP transfers under Linux.I booted into a Windows machine, put a disc in the drive and attempted to copy to the device via USB 2.0. It was a bit quicker, but I was only able to get 2-4MB/sec so copying a handful of movies all at once takes over an hour - and I'm constantly interrupting my workflow rebooting into different operating systems.
I've considered getting a USB OTG cable so that I could plug an external (self-powered) DVD drive into the phone. However, I haven't found a definitive answer on whether or not generic USB DVD drives are supported via USB Host. Most seem to think they are not.I'd remove an SD card and use a USB card reader on my desktop, but the Galaxy Nexus doesn't have one.It would be nice to stream the movies from my network file server, but I haven't found a good solution for that either. Most of the file browsing apps that claim to support streaming actually copy files locally temporarily instead of reading them incrementally from the server. Since I run Linux, I don't have the capability of running those specialized Windows apps that simulate streaming from the desktop. I could root the phone and manually mount network drives, but the management of that doesn't seem elegant given I'm not always in range of my home network and I'd also like to take some with me on the go.
Once the movies are on the phone, they play great and I have no problems. It's just quite a challenge to get them there in a reasonable timeframe without headaches. How do those of you who watch HD movies on your phones handle this?
I have a app in development. It write data to a SQLite database. I've tested the app on my NexusOne over the weekend and have a bunch of data now in the database. I'd like to copy the database off of the phone and onto my dev machine.
I've tried to use adb pull <path to mydatabase> <path to my local machine> but it gives me a Permission Denied error.
