Android :: Seemingly Useless Debugging Environment

Feb 17, 2010

I've just started debugging my first three line long android app and I can't seem to use the debug tool like I want to. Here's my code:

public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
int a = 1 / 0;

Now I expect the debugger to halt the thread and show me the line number of statement where the division by zero occurs. No, instead it shows some other method internal to the system for which I have no source. To make the matters worse, there is no exception message either. Prior to this app, I created one which would do something when a button was pressed. If any exception was raised, again no useful line number or exception message would be shown. As of right now, there is no way to debug my app. I'm using the latest SDK along with Eclipse ADT plugin and debugging on a real device (Nexus One).

Android :: Curious And Seemingly Paranoid

Oct 4, 2010

I know very little about Android. I do have a background in developing apps for the Palm VII; it was my job, in part. But that is as far as it goes. I have a Zio and it suits me fine. I do not care about the next Android release, I just want to do what I need to do. That said, when I download from the market, I am presented with a list of things the software has access to. Location, SD Card, Passwords, email address, and the list goes on and on. I am not telling most of you anything you do not allready know.

My question is this: how are we protected from apps that are designed to take this info and use it in a nefarious manner? Again, I am not an expert. I am not paranoid, just curious. We all have PCs. We all know about virus issues, pishing scams, bots, trojans, scams, etc. Seems to me, the last thing we would accept is software that gathers copious quantities of sensitive data; we do, so it seems, accept it from developers of applications that we freely DL from the market.

HTC EVO 4G :: Seemingly Unable To Root

Jul 8, 2010

I've tried to follow the Idiot proof guide, but that doesn't work because unrevoked no longer works after the OTA. I've tried to follow other web guides that has you place into the root directory, hold volume down and power and boot to the HBoot thing. Well, that loads, it searches for and finds PC36, and starts to load from it through the blue progress bar. After the bar is finished, it waits a few seconds, then says "Main version is older! Update Fail! Do you want to reboot the device?" And I can not find any other way to continue. The only options I've found to root are either do this with the P36 or unrevoked, which is now not working.

HTC EVO 4G :: Facebook App Seemingly Still Auto Updating?

Jul 7, 2010

I have a link to the Facebook app on one of my screens and whenever I open it and immediately click on "News Feed", there are posts from a matter of minutes or 1 hour ago even when I haven't opened the app for a full day or two. I am not root, using stock everything and have downloaded all of the OTA updates. My Settings > Accounts and Sync menu shows accounts only for Google and Weather, nothing for Facebook. Auto-sync data is checked but shouldn't it only do so for the accounts that are setup?

Android :: Useless Application Thread

Jan 15, 2010

I've seen talk of some of the more "useless" apps for the iphone lately(Champagne bottles, bottle caps, farts, etc), and thought may be a thread on them here would be interesting, so here goes. Please list here any apps that you may have that are basically useless functionality-wise, but are gag apps, funny, strange, or even just plain stupid. Please note they have to be compatible with the Moto Droid(which is why this thread is in this subforum).
On my Droid are:
FartDroid Champagne Dildroid Spark Beavis and Butthead Soundboard Sound Grenade Tricorder

Android :: Wave Secure Tracking A Bit Useless?

May 26, 2010

I find that the tracking on wave secure isn't really that efficient especially since it's now an app with a monthly subscription. The main reason is that the gps tracking on it is really pretty poor in accuracy and this is the main thing I use it for. So are there any alternatives with more accurate tracking on it? ( I mean google maps gives it more accurate than WS)

Android :: Environment To Run Inside Windows?

I was just wondering if there was an Android environment that would let you run Android OS inside/alongside Windows, like Virtual PC basically, and let you have full connectivity just like if you were using your phone. I'm not sure what the utility could be right now but it sounds interesting to me.

Android :: Scripting Environment For Application - No Way Of Accomplishing

Oct 13, 2009

I'm trying to make my app scriptable. Specifically, I need to expose a few Java APIs and make callbacks settable via user-written scripts. Ideally I'd like to hide some of the complexity away in a DSL, but there's no way of accomplishing what I want neatly without some form of user scripting, so I may accept another alternative if it meets my requirements. Initially I looked into Scala as that is my main language of choice, but the Scala interpreter is just a wrapper around its compiler, which I'm told won't run well if at all on the phone.

I've also tried JRuby, which worked under Cupcake. There appears to be a regression in the form of a Dalvik bug that prevents it from working under Donut, however:
I've also seen the Android Scripting Environment. Am I correct in assuming that this only supports running full interpreters and not embedding scripting languages into apps?

Android :: Calibration With The Environment May Improve The Readings?

Jun 9, 2009

Reading the sensor API ( hardware/SensorManager.html) The section about ACCURACY speak about calibration:

"calibration with the environment is needed"

How do it calibrate?! Is this software calibration? Phone specific calibration??

I don't see any methods to calibrate.

Using the HTC Magic the compass often give me crazy values like if I was on the magnetic pole. I feel pretty scared and hide under a tinfoil hat just in case...

So any url, doc or explanation!

Android :: Get User Defined Environment Variables?

Sep 20, 2010

I would like to use self defined Environment variables in my source code.

I use System.getenv() to do this and the code line looks like this. Log.d("MyTest","== MyEnv " + System.getenv("AP") + " ANDROID_ASSETS:" + System.getenv("ANDROID_ASSETS"));

Before I execute my code I define my AP variable with export: export AP="12345" and the this is my output of set command


Then I execute my code and I get this line from logcat

D/MyTest( 5363): == MyEnv null ANDROID_ASSETS:/system/app

The value for my defined Environment variable is null. Any suggestions on why it didn't work?

Android :: Water Damage / Immediately Powered On So Phone Now Useless

Aug 3, 2010

My phone dropped from my pocket into the toilet. It was in there for no longer than 5 seconds. I took out the battery and tried to dry everything off. In a panic I turned it back on to see if it would work. I wasn't thinking at all. It started to turn on, then the screen flickered and everything went black. I dried it out properly and it still won't turn on. I've plugged it into the charger, nothing. Is my phone now useless? My mom says will not buy me another phone until the contract is up, in over a year. Is there anything I can do? Or did I completely screw myself?
If my phone is gone, can I still save my contacts and/or pictures?

Android :: Development Mode And Maintaining Environment Variables

Nov 16, 2009

I'm building an Android application and would like to maintain a few environment variables that I can tweak depending on whether I'm in development mode or release mode.

I'd like to externalize this and other settings so I can change them easily based on my target deployment. Distinguishing development mode and release mode environment settings on Android.

Android :: Removing Public Static Fields In OS Environment?

File path = getExternalFilesDir(Environment.DIRECTORY_PICTURES);
It does not compile on 2.1. The static fields DIRECTORY_PICTURES, DIRECTORY_MUSIC etc. Don't seem to be found. Using the filter api checkbox, I see that it was removed in Android 2.2 (or api version 8). So the manifest file needs to contain minSdk defined as 7.
