Android :: How To Run Linux On Hand - Held Tablets?

Aug 22, 2010

I want to run a dj tango app on a hand-held device. It'll need to run Python (obviously) and will write its data to an SQLite database. Are there any tablets available that will let me do this? Specifically, if I bought an Android tablet, would I have to/be able to install Linux instead, or would I be able to run it under Android?

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 :: Google Need To Be Held Accountable

Oct 15, 2010

Need to be held accountable? i think maybe,, I think goggle needs to tread carefully when issuing license to companies, as this issue with SE has really soured my mouth with the way android may be used and abused by such companies. slow releases of existing operating system will unfortunately be its demise.

Samsung Moment :: Screen Doesn't Shut Off During A Call When Phone Held

Mar 5, 2010

I've searched and have been unable to find a solution to this problem. Actually its with my wife's phone, we both have Moments, mine works great but hers frequently (not all the time) doesn't shut off during phone calls. At first I thought she was just holding it strange but I have seen it for myself and its quite frustrating. The biggest issue is that its an intermittent problem so of course it never happens when at the Sprint store asking about replacing the phone. I did the recent update to the phone and it still does it. Any way to fix this short of getting a new one?

HTC Incredible :: Touchscreen - After Phone Wakes - Home Button Will Be Phantomly Held

Sep 15, 2010

I'm having problems with the touchscreen. After the phone wakes, the home button will be phantomly held. The app switcher will keep coming up, apps will randomly close (as in the home button being pressed). Swype confirms that there's a held input at the home button. Sometimes the lockscreen won't unlock (screen won't register, probably because the home button phantom press is overriding other input). I've tried this without the charger, in and out of my hand. Using stock battery, OEM charger. Also tried on official Verizon stock 2.2, cyanogenmod, fourth wave, and virtuous.

Android :: Detect The Usb Device

Dec 11, 2009

I have ported the Android to a x86 platform. And i want to detect the USB plug-in.But follow the information about the android.intent.action.MEDIA_MOUNTED in the SDK's DOC, i can't receive the event of the USB's plug-in. i have checked my code and it can receive the other event ( ps:intent action) .

Besides, in the CLI, i could mount the USB device to /sdcard but it couldn't mount automatically. have seen some source code about the mount and mountlistener and it should be effective. my SDK's version is 1.5.

Android :: Detect Car Acceleration In App

Jun 5, 2010

I want to incorporate some Accelerometer code into a Android application im working and want to see if this is possible. Basically what I need is for the code to detect car acceleration motion. I am not wanting to determine speed with the code but just distinguish if the phone is in a car and has accelerated motion (Hence the car is moving for the first time). I have gone through many different accelerometer applications to see if this motion produces a viable profile to go off of and it appears it does. Just looking for something that popups a "Hello World" dialog when it detects your in the car and its moving for the first time down the street. Any help would be appreciated and a simple yes or no its possible would work. I would also be interested in compensating anyone that is capable of doing this as well.

Android :: Detect End Of Scroll

Jun 6, 2010

I need to implement HorizontalScrollView which is scrolled to predefined positions (similar to Home behaviour). It works with slow gestures, but does not work with neither flings nor arrow key press.

I hooked to View.onScrollChanged() and it is called when scrolling happened, but I can't determine when scrolling animation ends.

In theory there should be a way to say that fling movement is over. Is there such API?

Android :: Detect If An App Was Uninstalled

Apr 21, 2010

Is there a way to get a system notification when an app has been uninstalled?I would like to maintain a table of all clients' info currently using my app. However, that seems impossible if there is no way to detect this event. The first solution I can think of is to have an always running service in the background listening for android.intent.action.PACKAGE_REMOVED. But then would that service be killed once the uninstallation process has ended, or would it be stopped just before the process has kicked off? Also even if this is a solution it's has the potential to put off a lot of people when they realise that part of the app is running in the background.

Android :: How To Detect Homescreen?

Jun 5, 2009

I've asked "how to detect home screen" before. I'm still searching. I noticed when I press "home" button on Android emulator, I got this statement in catalog so I went to ActivityManager to see if I can find a clue there. Here is my findings: 1. I can not instantiate ActivityManager because it's constructor is not public, and it's not a singleton 2. it has a function called: getRunningAppProcesses sounds promising -- would it give me all the running processes? 3. since I can not instantiate ActivityManager I tried to use one of the derived class: RunningAppProcesseInfo to see if I can use it's parent methods: getRunningAppProcesses. Nope.

Android : How To Detect HTC Sense?

Sep 9, 2010

Can I somehow detect if my app is running on HTC Sense? More generally, the problem is, that I have a Button with custom drawable. It's something very similar to the account switcher in the top right of Gmail app. When pressed or focused, the button has orange highlight. But that doesn't look nice on HTC Sense - because the standard highlight color there is green.

Android : How To Detect Correctly APN Changes?

Feb 10, 2010

In my application I need to react on APN changes (including going back and forth between WiFi and GSM connections) and change proxy settings in case it needs to be taken into account to connect with the network. I'm listening for ConnectivityManager.CONNECTIVITY_ACTION broadcasts to check for APN changes which contains 'reason' extra among others. Unfortunately the 'reason' for APN change is not documented, maybe it should not be used? I was using (with limited success) reason:apnChanged and reason:apnSetupComplete as indicators of APN change being done but that does not work well with going back and forth between WiFi and mobile connection. What is the correct way of listening for changes of current network APN/Interface?
