Android :: SharedUserID / Safe To Change When App Is Already In Market

Jul 15, 2010

For the next version of our application, I want to change the sharedUserId since we now use an internal control dashboard app which must write to the other app's settings files.But since the app is already installed on many phones, will this be a problem? I ran a little test on the emulator, and I'm seeing exceptions in the device logs that *.bak versions of the preference files cannot be written. Not sure how critical that is. Curiously, safing settings still seems to work, even though the shared_prefs folder had been created using another Linux user ID.Did anyone try this before?

General :: Login And Password Stored By Android Market Tool Are Safe?

Mar 7, 2012

After the android market tool make the first connection between the smartphone and the market web site for start download app it ask to Google username and password account. Just for paranoia I would to know if it store these data in a safe mode since another troian app could attempt to "stole" these data and trasmit somewhere in background. What do you think about, do you trust the market tool?

General :: Changing DPI - Using Modded Market Safe?

May 11, 2012

I like changing the DPI of my Galaxy Nexus to 240dpi

Unfortunately, this makes some apps run in tablet mode (Plume Pro and Tweetcaster Pro)

Changing to 241dpi fixes this

However, this ruins my market - I can no longer get updates for many of my apps ("This app is not compatible with your device")

There is an option with LCD Density Modder Pro to use a 'modded market' - this seems to solve my problem, however... is using this modded market safe? Because surely it's some sort of hack and so I shouldn't keep my card details within it (to purchase apps?)

Android :: Resource IDs And SharedUserID

Jul 20, 2010

If I am not wrong with the way android:sharedUserId is intended to work, then my question is how to avoid overlapping resource IDs? appt seems to aways start IDs at the same initial value (i.e. drawables at 0x7f020000), so there will be sort of conflict or ambiguation. As for now I failed to get that cleared w/o digging in OS sources. Or I miss anything, like magic "undocumented" appt option (not that aapt is documented at all)?

Sprint HTC Hero :: Is It Safe To Install Apps From Market Now?

Nov 9, 2009

As we all know, the Hero was released with a battery drainage issue. After successfully following the instructions on how to circumvent the issue,I kind of had a feeling like I should be careful on which apps to download so as to not undo the workaround. (It did eventually happen but I have had to factory reset my Hero only once since then.) That being said, is it now safe to download apps willie nillie?

Android :: Two Applications Sharing / SharedUserID

Sep 1, 2009

I have two applications in the field that share the same sharedUserid.What I just found out was that there is a bug in Android, where un- installing one application removes permissions from the other application also - thereby rendering the other application useless. Looks like this bug has been reported before : This is a critical bug.Is there a workaround or a tool that can be provided to the user to recover back to a working version. Un-installing and re-installing the the application to start from scratch is not a acceptable option for our users,they stand to lose a lot of valuable data.

Android :: Updating Permissions For Apps That Modify SharedUserID

Oct 6, 2009

I'm looking to update my app and provide a sharedUserId as part of my manifest, so that the several apps I have can all nicely look at each other's private files if necessary. Unfortunately, I've discovered that adding a sharedUserId where it did not exist before will change the userId and make me unable to modify current existing files.Is there a graceful way to handle updating your sharedUserId now that I need its functionality? Or am I pretty much resigned to requiring people to uninstall and reinstall my app to be able to do this?

Media :: How Will Android Change The Ringtone Market

Aug 25, 2008

How will Android change the ringtone market?

It'll be pretty easy to put/store music/mp3 on your phone with an Android device I'm guessing. And, I would imagine it would be quite simple to set this sound as your ringtone.

Not to mention... you could set various sounds to various events such as an alarm clock tone, a tone when you press a button, a tone when people call you, etc...

Do you think this will CRUSH the ringtone marketers who are making tons of money at the moment selling tones on these closed devices?

Android :: Is The Static Safe ?

Jul 29, 2009

I use a single static class in my code that defines a static field which I'm reusing between Activity onStop/onStart invocations. Here's a scenario:

User clicks on "Authorize" button (static data is initialized) Activity is stopped and web browser is called
Browser executes callback and Activity is restored (static data is reused)

At least one of my users reports the failure at step 3 which I cannot reproduce but which looks like reset of static data.

Android :: My Safe Mode Fiasco

Apr 5, 2010

i just got the 2.1 update this morning and was cleaning up a few unused apps and i came across launcher. I couldn't believe I still had it on here (been using sweeterhome) and so i remembered i had to go into safe mode to remove it. Tried to get into safe mode no luck. thought, ok, i'm missing a step or something. looked up the directions to make sure i was doing each step correctly and still nothing! i've held the power button and the menu button (keyboard) down at the same time until i saw the eye, until after the haptic then major vibration. i tried holding the menu and power, then releasing the power while still holding menu until both things i just stated and still nothing! what is happening is after I hold the buttons until after the vibration one of two things happens,it will go back to the screen that spells out droid then the eye or it will load normally, no safe mode on the screen. i read somewhere doing a google search that someone else had this same experience and asked for help and no one replied.

Android :: PDAnet Is Safe / Secure?

are there some smarties here that can confirm that PDAnet is safe / secure and doesn't have spyware / adware type capabilities? The reason I ask is because i'll be using it to tether to my laptop. When installing on the laptop...certificate warnings pop up.. the same when installing on droid. (USB debugging warning comes up saying it has to be turned off) which basically means data can be transferred wherever.
