Android : Removed Widget / Way To Retrive?

Sep 10, 2010

I removed the Android Battery Manager widget by moving it to the trash bin because it was taking up too much room on the home screen. I thought it would still be located in the Adroid Widgets queue, but it is not. Is there a way to retrieve it?

HTC Tattoo :: Mail Widget Can't Be Removed / Android Phones Are Not Available

Oct 25, 2009

I just got a tattoo this week and have had a few problems, and thought I would post what I have seen so that other tattoo users can either add to the list, or respond with solutions or workarounds they have found.

1) many apps from previous android phones are not available (presumably this is because they are "incompatible with the smaller screen resolution, but I suspect that many of them are just incorrectly tagged for 1.5 sdk or earlier, but would likely still work with donut-1.6) but could easily be made available with a tiny bit of tweaking.

2) the HTC Mail widget can't be removed (or moved) from the second screen to the left on the Sense interface. Why even bother with this one over the gmail?)

3) speaking of Gmail - somehow it only accesses the messages which are actually to my gmail address, and not to other addresses which are forwarded to my gmail (and are always in my gmail inbox) do I need to install google gears to get this working (which is not, as I found out quickly "gears for android" as listed in the marketplace) as it does on my laptop?

4) All of this is would be easily solved if someone has just figured out to root this thing... I started along the hero donut instructions I had seen at unlockr, pressing the down volume rocker while turning it on.

HTC EVO 4G :: Improved Battery Life (People Widget Removed)

Jun 25, 2010

I removed the People widget. From the main screen, scroll right. Hold down the People widget and remove it. I was getting 10 hours daily off a full charge. Today I got up to 14. Normally I lose 10% per hour. In the morning, I was losing 5%. I was hoping to double my 10 hours and get to 20 but I did make it to 14.

I was also losing 15-20% in the first hour battery drain. After removing the people widget, I only lost 3%! Previously, I tried everything. Turned off GPS, formatted SD card, hard reset, changed from GSM to CDMA, charging while the phone was off/on repeatedly. I have hardware version 003.

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 :: ListView Selector - Selection Does Not Get Removed

Sep 27, 2010

I have a ListView. When I click on a ListItem, I set the background of the ListItem (it's view) to another color:


Here is my adapter:


The problem is, if I select multiple rows, then multiple rows have a colored background. I only want the clicked item to have a colored background. So if I click on row 2, I want it to turn red, then if I click row 1, I want row 2 to go back to normal, and row 1 to turn red.

Android :: Drivers Removed From Mainstream Kernel?

Feb 4, 2010

Why isn't Google playing nice with regards to the Linux Kernel Android code? Greg KH says the Android code is stagnant and as a result got removed recently:

I know for a fact Greg KH bends over backwards to help Linux Kernel developers maintain their code, so hearing this news about the Android drivers being removed is very troubling. Hearing about all the hardware companies that now cannot get their own Android drivers into the main kernel is the worst of it. Google seems fairly evil lately, but everyone who should care (fellow Android developers, I'm looking at you) seems to just want to put their hands over their ears and sing "la la la la".

Android is not being handled in the true spirit of open source, and Greg KH's assessment of the situation is even more proof of that fact.

Android :: Does Database Get Completely Removed And Recreated Then Updating An App

Aug 28, 2010

I have an app that uses a database. At startup I check to see if my tables are missing and if so I create them. Works great.

I've noticed that if I "adb uninstall" then the next time I run my app the tables are created again (this is what I need), but what about when updating through the marketplace?

I'm in the process of releasing an update, and I've made major changes to the tables. I'd like it if the tables were completely wiped and re-created, in fact my app needs this to happen. If someone updates and has the old tables then there will be a force close. Does anyone know the specifics of this scenario?

My tables are only for lookup, I store no user data so I dont really care about losing data on the updates.
Of course I know an option is to use some type of "version" table and check to see if I need to manually drop and create, but I was wondering if that was even needed.

Android :: Beautiful Widgets Removed - Clouds Floating Across Screen

Oct 7, 2010

I bought Beautiful Widgets, installed them and removed them from my screen. I am deciding how I want my little Zio to look. And no, I am not upset at my little problem. I love and would recommend the program. However, this AM I noticed clouds floating across my email screen after the phone sat idle for an hour or so. I took a look at all running apps (Task Killer, sorry) and nothing seems to be running that would account for the animation. I asked Mr. Google about this and he is as clueless as I am.

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]

General :: Factory Data Reset On Rooted Android With Some System Applications Removed?

Dec 27, 2012

I rooted my phone to uninstall some bloatware system apps several months ago. Now, I need to perform a factory data reset just to remove the Google account associated with it. Is it safe to do so or will I lose any further system apps or worse, brick my phone? I have the apk's of the system apps that I removed, but for some reason I am not able to restore/install all of them. I used ES File Explorer back then to remove those apps. [My phone is Samsung GT-I5801 running Android 2.2]

HTC Desire :: O2 Removed The 2.2 Froyo Upgrade

Oct 4, 2010

My Desire was crashing, so I requested a replacement with O2 business. I upgraded to 2.2 last week using the software update link on the phone. Today I received my 'new' handset from O2 which still has 2.1-update1 as the firmware version. When I tried to upgrade I was informed there is no newer version. Spoke to O2 business, who told me that HTC had withdrawn it again. I'm kinda pleased that my 2.2 desire has been sent back, if there are serious enough issues with Froyo for it to be withdrawn. I did like a couple of things extra in the menu structures, but is it really that important?
