Android :: SCAM WARNING - Clean ESN Myth

Aug 16, 2010

A phone with a clean ESN that has been activated on your account can still be rendered useless and placed on the blacklist if someone decides to report it stolen! CAVEAT EMPTOR!

If you are buying a used phone, have the seller put it IN WRITING that the phone is legit, just calling Verizon to check on the ESN is not enough. If they arent willing, find someone who is.

Android :: Google Sign In Error Scam?

Oct 25, 2010

Interesting question for you all. I'm running a rooted Eris on xtrROM 4.6 with all the little bells and whistles. No apps that are out of the ordinary. Just a moment ago I had the little warning triangle with the sign through it. I opened it up and it was a message that said google sign in error.It gave me one of those stylized arrangements of letters that i had to punch to make sure I wasn't a bot. Generally stuff like that makes me fairly wary so I closed it and opened both my gmail folder and google calendar (which I just started using today actually). Both worked fine. Was this a fishing scam of some kind? I've been reading some reports of how fishing scams are coming over through SMS and I've gotten some of the more obvious ones for walmart cards etc, but this one was new to me.

Android :: App To Clean Up Texts

Mar 19, 2010

I noticed that my Eris sent texts very quickly when I first upgraded to 2.1, and now not so much. I know it's because the texts are starting to really build up, so is there an app that will make the text messaging app only keep the last 20-50 messages?

Android :: ServiceConnectionLeaked Warning

Jan 4, 2010

I'm getting a ServiceConnectionLeaked message that I don't understand.

There are 3 activities and a remote service, all the activities use the same remote service. The main window, activity 1, starts up, auto-starts the service and binds to it. The user then starts activity 2 to do something. The user now wants activity 3, so the code in activity 2 puts some data in an intent and starts activity 1 via startActivity (). When activity 1 is started, it reads the data in the intent and starts activity 3.

This all works as expected except that while activity 3 is starting I get the ServiceConnectionLeaked warning. This is odd because the code that unbinds from the service has never been called and the service connection continues to operate just fine. If the user backs out of the main window the service is unbound and everything shuts down correctly.

Because the UI design doesn't want activity 2 to stack on top of 3, or 3 on top of 2 I use a FLAG_ACTIVITY_CLEAR_TOP flag when starting activity 1. (I tested with this flag removed and the leak warning goes away but I wind up with extra activities/windows in the stack).

To make it even a bit weirder, if I run through the same scenario again, e.g. close activity 3 to get back to activity 1, open 2, switch to 3 there is no leakage the second and successive times, only the first time (near as I can tell).

Android :: Warning When Using BufferedInputStream

Nov 23, 2009

We are developing an application which uses the BufferedInputStream class several times, and we are getting an annoying message in the logcat:

I/global ( 749): Default buffer size used in BufferedInputStream constructor. It would be better to be explicit if an 8k buffer is required.

We cannot meet the suggestion all the times and it's very annoying and it doesn't make much sense. Is it possible to remove that warning message? Or to change the log level to fine instead of info or warning, for example, so that it doesn't appear in the logcat messages?

Android :: App Wiping TMO G1 Phones Clean

Jan 26, 2009

January 26, 2009, 11:00 am by Ben Sillis 1 comment Filed under Mobile phones Tags: Android, android market, app, app store, Apple, G1, Google, HTC, T-Mobile, T-mobile G1 Watch out, T-Mobile G1 owners: a dodgy app that appears to be wiping phone memories has made its way onto the Android Market. The open source nature of Android has come back to bite Google, with what may be the first piece of malware finding its way onto the Android Market.

MemoryUp is supposedly designed to clean up the T-Mobile G1?s memory, but it?s being a bit too vigorous and wiping the internal memory of the G1 as well as the inserted SD card in some cases. One user, ?kr33p1n?, complains that it ?Doesn?t work at all erased my phone numbers and froze my phone,? and many others seem to be in agreement, with the program clocking up several hundred one star ratings already. So, a devious Windows Mobile, BlackBerry Storm or Palm Pre employee behind it? Or just some jerk cranking out cackhanded code? We don?t know, but all of a sudden, Apple?s closed App Store and opaque approval process seem very enticing.........

How To Avoid Clean Build Using Mm-B On Android

Oct 11, 2012

I am building an Android Application that has a lot of C modules that has the sequence of Java->JNI->C code. I am currently building all the C modules using mm -B option in the Android baseport (Android source code) within the external folder. When I want to build all C modules, I call the individual modules' mm -B function one after the other. I have 2 questions in this regard.I wanted to know if there is a way to do incremental build on a set of modules. The scenario here is that I am building a set of modules one after another from a script. I have observed that all the modules mentioned in the script get built irrespective of whether a change has been made to it or not. This clean build takes time. Is there a way out of this?

Whenever mm -B is executed, the libraries built are placed in out/target/product//obj/lib/ path by default. I wanted to know if we can change this path and whenever the mm -B command is called, the libraries are copied to the corresponding modules paths and not to this common path.

I dont have much knowledge of the envsetup.sh that has the definition of these mm and mmm functions.

Android :: Warning Before Exiting Application?

Jul 29, 2009

I have an app that receives and stores SMS messages. The main use is to run in the background, although it does have a full GUI when running in the foreground. I'm using a notification with the FLAG_ONGOING_EVENT flag so users can tell the application is running, even if it's in the background. However, the user could easily close the app by viewing the main screen and clicking the back button. The notification icon goes away, but I would like to be able to warn the user that closing the app would prevent it from capturing the SMS messages. Is there any way to prompt the user if they really want to exit the application when they hit the back button, and prevent the exit if they say no? Or should I take a different approach? And a bonus question: is there a way of receiving an SMS message, but prevent it from passing on to, say, the Messenging app?

Android :: Warning - Stuck With Old Applications

Sep 4, 2010

Don't buy anything from Android Playground! They don't give you updates and because of that, you get stuck with old applications that taint your system and eventually makes your phone slower. Only buy apps through the market! Someone I met who works for Verizon informed me of this.

Android :: Warning - Aplication From Eclipse

Apr 11, 2009

Since previous releases of android SDK (I think since version 0.9), I have a warning when I run a aplication from Eclipse.

"Warning once: This application, or a library it uses, is using NSQuickDrawView, which has been deprecated. Apps should cease use of QuickDraw and move to Quartz."

How I can solve this? I am running Eclipse 3.4 (Ganymede) in Mac OS X 10.5.6.

Android :: Astrid Tasks 3.0 Warning

Aug 3, 2010

WARNING: Back up your Astrid 2 before doing the Astrid 3 upgrade!I just updated to Astrid 3.0 ("Update Available"). Silly me, I didn't read the notes other than to see that Astrid 3 was "all new". My tasks vaporized! The I tried to "restore" and it said I had to buy an add-on pack to do that. No indication of whether the restore in V3 is compatible with saved tasklists from V2. The experience left me cold. I uninstalled Astrid 3 and reverted to V2 via the link http://bit.ly/oldastrid. Then I restored from the saved list on my SD card from the scheduled backup that Astrid did last night. I still lost some tasks I entered today.

Android :: Clean - Minimalist Setup For Gadgets?

Jul 2, 2010

I really like a super efficient, clean, minimalist setup for my gadgets. I've been playing around with the Android OS since I picked up my EVO trying to figure out the most efficient setup. I think I've got a pretty good setup going now, and I'm curious what else like-minded people are doing. Right now, I've got LauncherPro as my home launcher. I'm down to three screens. My main screen is Beautiful Smaller Home widget and Pure Calendar 4x3 widget with scrolling enabled. To the left, I've got a page of Apps Organizer shortcuts with everything very specifically organized into the most useful labels for me. To the right, I've got a page of my most used applications that aren't on my dock.

Along the dock, I've got Gmail, Handcent, and Talk on one screen, Phone, Search People, and Navigation on the next, and Camera, Mixzing, and AppBrain on the third. Framing all three of my dock screens, I've got previous and next screen shortcuts. Finally, to top it all off, I've got QuickDesk enabled by default with a long press of the search button. My QuickDesk screen is completely full with any sort of toggle option I might need (GPS, BT, Wifi, plane mode, sync, screen brightness, LED light, unlock pattern, PDANet, QuickProfile, and Wifi Tether) as well as the Pandora and Mixzing widgets. I've also got BatteryLeft on that screen. The only thing I'm kind of missing is the Dolphin Bookmark widget. I'm thinking about removing the previous and next screen shortcuts in my dock to free up six more icons down there, which would get me close to having space for the bookmarks widget on my screen to the right.

Android :: Clean Up Internal Root Folder?

Nov 24, 2010

I've noticed a somewhat bothersome issue with the root folder of my phone's internal SD card. Perhaps it's lazy coding, perhaps I've missed a setting somewhere, but the root seems swamped with various folders by different applications. Is there no Application Data folder for these, using Windows terms?

Android :: View.onDraw() Always Clean Canvas?

Mar 11, 2010

I am trying to draw an animation. To do so I have extended View and overridden the onDraw() method. What I would expect is that each time onDraw() is called the canvas would be in the state that I left it in and I could choose to clear it or just draw over parts of it (This is how it worked when I used a SurfaceView) but each time the canvas comes back already cleared. Is there a way that I can not have it cleared? Or maybe save the previous state into a Bitmap so I can just draw that Bitmap and then draw over top of it?

Android :: R.java Disappears After Project Clean

Oct 9, 2010

After I added some .png files into my Project Workspace drawable folder I refreshed my drawable folders in Eclipse and the newly added files showed up. But when I tried to access those resources using R.drawable.xyzimage, xyzimage although in the folder could not be resolved. So I did a Project Clean and guess what after this clean R.java is totally gone and all my classes accessing resources using R.java is showing all sorts of error and Eclipse won't let me run the code anymore. I have backup of my source code but I want to explore if R.java can be regenerated and how?

Android : How Can I Get Clean Install Without Restoring Settings?

Aug 31, 2010

SO I sinstalled the CM 6.0.0 rom to check it out. I downloaded some apps and fiddled with some settings to see if I liked it, but decided to do a wipe before using it "for real". Unfortunately, I can't get it back to a clean install because it insists on restoring all of my previous settings and applications. Even ones I've uninstalled and gotten refunds for, no matter what settings I put in the Privacy section about backing up and restoring.

Android :: Warning - Nothing Worked Except Third Party Apps

Dec 22, 2009

About a week ago when I booted my phone everything forced closed while the desktop loaded up (phone, gps, settings, etc...) and nothing worked except third party apps (thank god.) Well I rebooted and everything worked fine after that... Fast forward to today and it started happening again except this time no matter what I did nothing would work. I even dropped the phone off with a Sprint service center (my device is a Sprint Hero) and they just ordered me a new phone because nothing they did worked. After I left Sprint I went out to eat and while eating I kept messing with my phone more and more until I admitted defeat and started backing up all my apps with Astro . Welllll apparently somewhere along the way I got this effing awesome idea to uninstall via Astro all the applications I've downloaded in the last week and freaking bam; phone works again. Here's a list of applications I deleted and I've starred the ones.

Audio Manager Widget
Smart Android Apps, LLC

My Coupons - Eat Free
Most Popular Download

3D Level
Igor Fischer

Icon Pack - Mario
Better Android

Calendar Widget 2
Bitartist

Minutes Widget (Miku Version)
Maya Takao

*Internal Memory Widget
G3

*SD Card Memory Widget
G3

S2 Calendar Widget
Futaba

*Powertime Widget
Weaverfish Designs

The starred ones raise more flags as I downloaded them before any of the others but not knowing which did this I figured I'd put all that I uninstalled to fix my phone.

Android :: AudioTrack - 51 - WARNING - ObtainBuffer() Timed Out

Nov 4, 2009

I am using MediaPlayer to play background music and SoundPool to play sound effects. All Audio data is stored in .ogg file format. Sometimes it happens that the MediaPlayer playback is interrupted for a fraction of a second if SoundPool.play() is called. Whenever this happens, the following two warnings are printed to logcat:

11-04 01:49:05.113: WARN/AudioTrack(51): obtainBuffer timed out (is the CPU pegged?) 0x2b6e8 user=000cc520, server=000cb710 11-04 01:49:05.113: WARN/AudioTrack(51): *** SERIOUS WARNING *** obtainBuffer() timed out but didn't need to be locked. We recovered, but this shouldn't happen (user=000cc520, server=000cb710)

Do you have any ideas what could cause the warning messages and/or how to avoid them? I.e. how to prevent SoundPool.play() from interrupting MediaPlayer playback?

An other warning that's sometimes appearing is: 11-04 01:55:49.793: WARN/AudioFlinger(51): write blocked for 89 msecs There seems to be no connection to the above messages, but do you have any ideas what causes this message and/or how to avoid it?

Here's some more detailed background information, maybe they are useful: My OpenGL powered game is split into three threads: One for rendering, one to take care about the game logic and the main thread to process user input. All Audio data is accessed through a central AudioManager class, which is only used in the game logic thread. (So this does not seem like a threading issue. Needless to say that synchronizing all methods has not solved the problem). The game runs smoothly at ~60 frames per second. According to DDMS the game causes ~33% system load (~10% in kernel space and ~23% in user space) on a G1. Even the idle task gets ~24% CPU time assigned while the game is running and input happens through the touch screen! (So it does not look like a performance problem) The MediaPlayer playback interruption always happens if SoundPool.play () is called in response of a touch screen input. Although touch screen input and SoundPool.play() happen in different threads. I've tried suspending the UI thread for various different delays between 8 and 32 msec after a MotionEvent has been processed, but again, without success...

Android :: Warning About Toggle Settings Uninstall

I uninstalled toggle settings and I had turned off APN data (GSM) and 3G network on it before I uninstalled. This meant that I couldn't connect to the internet I think it was the APN that was the killer luckily after trying a bunch of stuff I found a copy of toggle settings on the internet and sent it via bluetooth installed it and then turned on the settings again and now it's fixed.
