Android :: Market Be Locked Down / Blocked / Removed?

Nov 12, 2010

My company is looking at upgrading from WinMo Intrepids to possibly Android phones.We are with Sprint so only those phones are being looked at.Couple of questions from an enterprise mind.Android 2.2 updated exchange policy support so some of our concerns are being met.My biggest questions are relating to Sprint ID and the Android Market.One does anyone know if you can totally locked down Sprint ID? As in not allow other ones from being downloaded and installed. Basically to give us a way to lock the phone down with what apps we want.Next big thing is can the Android Market be locked down/Blocked/Removed?Remember these are going to be company phones mainly being used for exchange email, not personal phones to play around with eating up data.Generally just looking at ways to keep the phones secure from all the nasties out there. We are looking at the Optimus S which is why I bring up Sprint ID.For my side of it, I would generally be against this. I own an Evo and love tinkering plus I will be the one developing in house apps for us to use.

Android :: Tethering Apps In The Market Are Now Blocked

May 25, 2009

I have done just about everything I need on my phone except tethering. Since I only had Edge available, I had never bothered to look into tethering, but now that 3g is on the horizon for me (June rollout), I am looking to tether.

Now, I recall reading that tethering apps in the market are now blocked. If that is true, where would I go to find the tethering apps, which is the best out there, and how would I go about loading it onto my phone.

I did give PDA net a shot, but the auto installer will not load it onto my phone...

Android :: Apps Labeled As Tetris Clones Removed From Market

Apr 7, 2009

I received a message from google saying that my game "Robotic Space Rock" was pulled from the android market after a request made by a legal firm representing an entity known as Tetris Company. My application was removed from the android market together with Blocks, Cubik, Net Tetris, Netblocks and Tetroid (6 apps in total) under claim that it violates the DMCA and more specifically trademarks and copyrighted material owned by the Tetris Company. However, none of the trademarks or copyrighted material (music, graphics and sound effects) are present in my game. Sound effects and music were created by me specifically for the game. There is no reference to the word tetris in the game. Additionally, all the game code, graphics and sound effects were created by me and published on the code site

Additionally, I am not aware of a software patent covering the game mechanics of Tetris, so I cannot see how I could violate something that is not protected by a software patent. Also, even if the game was protected by a patent, the patent would have expired, since the original game, Tetris, was created 23 years ago. However game mechanics cannot be covered by patents.

I would also like to point out that my game is available completely free of charge to every user of the android market.

I wrote those concerns to Google and I sent an email to the EFF. The bottom line is that for my application to be restored on the android market, I have to send a DMCA counter-notification. And then the Tetris Company can sue and take the case to Court.

When games were pulled from the iPhone App store, they blamed apple, but it is not hard to see that behind application removals we can find companies like the Tetris Company, that demand application removals claiming copyright infringement and trademarks. However, it is not easy to battle these companies as individual developers. I, for example, am a Greek citizen living in Greece, so it is difficult for me to file a counter-notification, because then the Tetris company will probably sue me and I will have to defend my case in court. Why should I bother? Am I making money out of the game? No! But even if I did you can see how easy it is for corporations to neutralize developers like that. I think that something should be done. Independent developers should get together to battle against such misuse of the law by corporations. And to those that want more facts, you can find more details on my blog: [url]

Android :: When SIM PIN Is Blocked - Ril Can Not Function Well

Mar 11, 2009

I have met a problem with the RIL. I am using reference ril to implement SIM PIN unlock function. When i use a pin blocked SIM card, the Android Java code through exceptions and the "rild" is repeatedly disconnected and reconnected. The at command response is correct and i suppose it is right for the reference ril to report "GENERIC FAILURE" when SIM Pin is blocked. I can not figure out the reason for the error. Can somebody help me.

Mar 28, 2010

I have made an activity to take picture using Camera class and the SurfaceView, everything works good except one little thing.

The main view is blocked in landscape to show the camera correctly. I have set the camera's pref, like setPictureSize, setPreviewSize etc... using those supported from the device. And it's ok.

So, when i take the picture and just a while after the camera sound, it's showed for a while a resutl of the picture taken, but it appear stretched. Why?

Android :: AudioFlinger - Many Write Blocked For Log WARN Messages

May 1, 2009

I'm using the MediaPlayer to play audio (mp3) files. I don't think I'm doing anything out of the ordinary, but, during playback, I get many (several per second) log messages like these:

05-01 09:46:20.685: WARN/AudioFlinger(554): write blocked for 47 msecs 05-01 09:46:20.785: WARN/AudioFlinger(554): write blocked for 47 msecs 05-01 09:46:20.895: WARN/AudioFlinger(554): write blocked for 49 msecs 05-01 09:46:20.985: WARN/AudioFlinger(554): write blocked for 47 msecs

I've searched all over the place for this - other people seem to experience the same thing but I can find any sort of explanation as to what it means.

Am I doing something wrong?

Also, how do I define a LogCat filter (in eclipse) to *remove*, say, all AudioFlinger messages? I can't seem to find the "not" syntax.

General :: Is ADB Blocked - Can't Access It

Mar 11, 2014

I am trying to fix a faulty device, which bootloop very frequently, due to a faulty kernel / audio driver. I've found the problem checking logcats, as well as logcats during the boot sequence.

How to fix the audio driver, here's the thread: [URL] ......

I would like to access ADB from this device, but I cannot get the device detected at all.

USB debugging is definitely enabled, and the device driver is also installed (Not even sure if I had to install a driver for this 2011 device in first place. Device is detected by computer without a problem).

If I type:

adb devices
The output is just: "List of devices attached" with a blank line.

If I try:

adb shell
This show up:

error: device not found

I can tell that ADB is working for another device - I had a LG-P500, and ADB is succesfully working for this phone.

The faulty device is a Creative ZEN Touch 2, but the name won't be of any support. Let's just pretend it's a generic Android device (Even thought no such Android exists) and forget about the name. The ROM installed on it (Froyo, 2.2.1) was customized by Creative, the manufacturer, since it's not a phone, just a multimedia device.

I was wondering if Creative "blocked" any access to ADB, if that's possible. I do know that Creative "does not encourage self-repair", according to the forums.

I also tried ADB wireless, I pressed the grey button that turned green, and then typed adb connect (IP). On the shell, I got the error:

unable to connect to

Altought I wasn't able to connect wirelessly to ADB using my LG phone, neither.

On the ZEN Touch 2, I found the file default.prop, which contain this:


What the default.prop file is about, but I was wondering if the line "persist.service.adb.enable" being equal to 0 / false, could block the access to ADB shell, in some way (if that's possible). I've read that this file is hard to modify, other than flash a new boot image.

What could I do to access ADB on this device ? Yes, the device is rooted.

I have access to a Linux operating system, if that can make the detection easier. Although I do not have ADB installed on this OS, yet.

General :: Blocked Access To Reddit And Buzzfeed

Feb 12, 2014

My Galaxy S3 suddenly blocked my access to reddit. I originally thought this was down to AdFree (for some reason) blocking it, so I have uninstalled that but it made no difference. I also noticed today that when I tried to follow someones link to a buzzfeed page that it was also blocked. Now these are some oddly specific blocks so I have a feeling that my phone may be hacked or downloaded something it shouldn't.

the culprit that is blocking my access? Will I have to format my device and start fresh?I used to browse reddit daily but its been a few weeks now....
