Android :: Preferences - How To Load The Default Values When User Hasnt Used Preferences-screen

Apr 22, 2010

I am using a PreferenceActivity to let the user set some values. I am feeding it the xml file with the defined preferences.

I have set all the android:defaultValue="" for them.

When I start my application, I need the preferences, or if they are not set yet manually, I want the default values:

CODE:.................

However, when android:defaultValue="true" I still get false. So, it looks like the defaultValues set in the XML are not used anywhere but when initializing the preferences-screen.

I don't want to hardcode the default values in the getBoolean() method. So, is there a way get the default-values with only defining these in 1 place?

Android :: Why Preferences Page Not Show Current Values?

Sep 16, 2010

I have a preferences page which is defined by XML - including some default values. I use a PreferenceActivity to display and handle this page. Whenever I use this page to set the preferences the preference file on the file system is updated properly - I can see this via adb. However, whenever I go back to the settings page after have changed some of the settings, it's the defaults that are shown. Worse than that, if I press back without changing any settings, it then sets the, all back to the default. How I can get the prefs to actually show the current settings? My PreferenceActivityis created thus:

@Override protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
PreferenceManager.getDefaultSharedPreferences(this) .registerOnSharedPreferenceChangeListener(this);
setDefaults(this); super.onCreate(savedInstanceState); addPreferencesFromResource(R.xml.settings); }

The XML looks like this:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <PreferenceScreen xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android">
<ListPreference android:id="@+id/numberOfYearsList"
android:key="numberOfYears" android:title="Number of Years to Read the Bible"
android:summary="How many years would you like to take to read through the reading plan?"
android:entries="@array/numberOfYears" android:entryValues="@array/numberOfYears"
android:dialogTitle="How Many Years?" android:defaultValue="1" />
<CheckBoxPreference android:key="ignoreDates" android:id="@+id/ignoreDatesCheckbox"
android:title="Ignore Dates" android:summary="Would you like to use the dates in the plan?"
android:defaultValue="false" /> </PreferenceScreen>

Android :: Clear Preferences In SharedPreferences In Droid Not Just Values?

Sep 2, 2010

From what I can incur out of the SharedPreferences documentation, I can update a preference, add one or clear all preference values in a shared preference file.

But I want to completely clear everything inside a shared preference file, not just the values, but the preferences they refer to as well.

General :: Android Resetting User Values And Updating Software Constantly

Jun 14, 2012

The device in question is a Dynavin car stereo that runs the Android platform.

I have updated the ROMS and even roll backed to older versions but this issue persists. I am now using a totally modified ROM created by a user on here for my device.

My issue is, every 5 or 6 boot ups of my device all my settings seem to revert to default. Well not "all" but I will explain in further detail.

When my issue arises, google maps/navigation/mail will not load, it will crash and go back to the home screen.Google PLAY will revert to Google Market, when I log into market, it will update all google programs.Once updated, maps/navigation/mail all work perfectly fine.

My installed programs are unaffected to the extent that they do not need updating, however, all their settings which I adjust, revert back to normal, all the dialogue boxes return, its like as if I'm running the program for the first time again.

When there is no issue, the system works fine and requires no updates etc.I feel it may be something to do with the ROM? Should files be moved to the memory card to preserve certain settings? But if I do that, how will Android know where to find these files?

HTC EVO 4G :: Resetting Default Gmail Address?

Jun 11, 2010

A few days after purchasing my EVO, my Gmail account was hacked and is now being used for evil (spamming). Is there any way to change the "default" Gmail account on the EVO without performing a factory reset?What I mean by this is that the e-mail address that I entered into the Gmail "setup screen" (for lack of a better term) is now compromised. Is this a "boom goes the dynamite" situation, or can I change the phone's e-mail address without going nuclear?

General :: Resetting Default App Settings?

May 3, 2014

how I can reset the default app settings. For example, using Blinkfeed on my M8, when I tap on a link, the first time I was asked which browser should be used. How can I reset Blinkfeed, or any other app to ask me again which app to use? Is it always an app setting, or can I centrally control that behavior?

Jelly Bean :: Resetting Default SMS Ringtone On Note 3

Apr 24, 2014

I was in the default SMS ringtone settings as I wanted to separate SMS notification tone from the tone used for the other notifications and I accidently it to 'Facebook Pop' tone. Now I don't get the Samsung default 'whistle' tone on my Note 3 that I want and I don't know how to change it back. When I select the 'select ringtone' option just takes me to a memory folder paths and there is no sign of any of the default ringtones anywhere. I just want the factory ringtone back. Why does Google have to complicate things by taking you to the general folder paths just to select a ringtone? How to remove the Facebook Pop tone and get me back to the default whistle tone that I have selected in the system sound settings? There seems to be no way of accessing the device folders which appears in ES Explorer, there are only the external and internal memory folders available, making it impossible to access the default tone directly unless I copy it from the system folder via ES Explorer and paste it to a folder within the internal memory. Why can't Google allow direct access to default tones within the default SMS app in the ringtone selection pane? It seems like an obvious thing to do which the stupidly left out of even the latest OS. I'm running 4.3 Android.

P.S. it seems now that even in the system settings itself in the sound settings the default notification setting takes me to the same folder path rather than before where I could simply select from a small number of preinstalled notification tones. The call ringtones are unaffected and can simply select a ringtone without being taken to any stupid folder paths, but the notification setting is whacked because I dabbled with the SMS app settings. How stupid are the Google Android time, why can they do it as well as Apple?

General :: Change Default Values In Settings For Android ROM

Oct 27, 2010

I'm starting to make my own android roms and i was wondering if it was possible to change the default android settings you get when you flash a rom. For example, when you first boot, animations are already turned on and orientation is turned off (unchecked) by default.

I've got an .apk manager so i've had a feeble attempt at going through .xml files in the decompiled Settings.apk. "res/xml/ sound_and_ display_ settings. xml" had the most potential but i couldn't see any "enable/disable" options.

Android :: Strange ListView Loading / Default Values Displayed

Jun 24, 2009

I have a listview that is populated by a couple threads that pull in data from the network. Before that data comes in, there are some default values displayed. When the screen loads, there are 6 items displayed, each with the default data. The 1st (index 0) loads and is updated on the screen, and then number 6 (index 5) is updated with that same info. Then, item 2 (index 1) loads, and then item 5 (index 4) mirrors that data. Then item 3 loads, then item 4 reloads with the correct data, then then item 5 with the correct data, then item 6. Why are items 5 and 6 briefly showing the data from other elements in the list? I can't figure out what in the world could be causing this.

Android :: Want To Restore My Phone To Factory Default

Sep 21, 2010

I downloaded a theme from the market and when I switched scenes back to HTC then back to the one I downloaded, a new wallpaper showed up, which I really like. I didn't like the theme (I think it was causing problems on my phone) so I uninstalled it, but the wallpaper remained (bonus). I have used it on my phone ever since, and now I want to restore my phone to factory default and redo everything in the hopes it will restore the speed my phone once had. I would really like to save the wallpaper but I can't find it anywhere on my phone. I have searched for hours trying to find where it could be or if I could even somehow grab the file being downloaded from the market and extract the wallpaper there. Does anyone know where to find the current home screen wallpaper. I've read that it was in the data directory, but that can only be accessed if you root your phone (i think) which I really don't want to do. I'm just trying to find some way that I can have the wallpaper saved and I can put it back on my phone without having to install the theme (which may or may not have caused the problems on my phone).

Android : Save Preferences Other Than Shared Preferences?

Mar 19, 2010

My application is used on multiple platforms so it saves it preferences to a file (rather than to the standard Android SharedPreferences).

Is there any easy of reusing the PreferenceActivity to save preferences to a file or is it a case of creating a whole new activity to do the job? If the latter is the case is there a layout I can use that will make the activity look like the normal preferences screen? PreferenceActivity uses com.android.internal.R.layout.preference_list_content but this doesn't appear to be available to apps for reuse.

General :: Reset Phone To Factory Default And Restore EFS?

Sep 25, 2013

Galaxy s2 sgh t989 rooted followed all steps.I ran hc-ktool to backup efs.img and efs.tar.gz. I have not flashed any ROM for fear of turning my s2 into a paper weight. I downloaded root browser from play store to try and look deeper. That is when i noticed my efs folder was empty. I have been scouring my files but feel like a blind man looking for a needle in a haystack.

i still have a good imei and broadband version...everything seems okay. I am reluctant to do anything for fear of bricking. I no longer have lockscreen or power off menu either.Can i reset the phone to factory default and restore my efs? If so, do i have to unroot my phone?

General :: Samsung I699 - Restore Factory Default?

Mar 14, 2013

I am using Samsung i699 (android 2.3.6) in China, They preinstalled so many suck apps. After I rooted and removed a bunch of apps including system files, and then every time when I power on, it displays "Low Storage Space there is not enough storage space available to complete this action, clear some space and try again" Before remove some system files such as applications provider, kies, kies wifi and etc... it never had any problems. So here I have a question:

I want to restore factory default. When I press "restore factory default", it just restores my settings, or restores all the apps and systems files I deleted?

Android :: User Preferences File Vs App Preferences File

Jun 23, 2010

My android application has two kinds of preferences:

1) I have user preferences defined in res/xml/preferences.xml so that users can manage their preferences with a PreferenceActivity.

2) I'd like to define another file for global configuration preferences of my app.

What is the best way to manage my app config preferences? Should I create another XML file with config values or should I specify those config values in strings.xml? What is the best practice for managing config preferences?
