Android :: Restart Service For Application SD Card / Remounted

Oct 18, 2010

Due to overwhelming user complaints I have decided try allowing users of my Android application to move it to the SD card as per the official documentation. However, a core feature of my application requires a background service to be continuously running. When someone who has moved my app to their SD card mounts their SD card for whatever reason, my background service will be killed.

That's all okay by me, as long as I can restart the service at the first available opportunity. Unfortunately, despite the install-location guide claiming I can use the Broadcast Intent ACTION_EXTERNAL_APPLICATIONS_AVAILABLE to detect when the SD card is remounted locally, the documentation for that flag itself, this newsgroup discussion, and my own testing show that this broadcast is not delivered to the applications which become available. Only applications which have not been moved to the SD card get the Broadcast Intent. Is there any way to restart my background service without waiting for the user to open my app after the SD card is remounted?

Android :: Service Restart After Preferences Change

Oct 2, 2010

I have a Service and a PreferenceActivity that allows the user to edit some preferences. I would like to restart the Service once the user is done with the PreferenceActivity.

I understand that I can register onChange listeners for individual preference changes, but I do not want to restart the Service as each preference changes. I would like to do this when the user is done editing all the preferences. Short of having a "Apply Now" button in the PreferenceActivity, I do not see a straightforward way of doing this.

Android :: Broadcast Receiver / Service Will Only Restart Activity Once

Mar 17, 2010

I have a single Activity application, within it I have a service which creates an AlarmManager and sends a broadcast to a broadcast Receiver.If the activity which starts the services dies, (ie. divide by zero), the broadcast receiver stops the old service which created the AlarmManager.It works the first time. The second time, it does not.It seems like the AlarmManager is still active but the broadcast receiver is no longer receiving. It works great once!

Android :: Scheduling Restart Of Crashed Service - Need Call To OnStart?

Mar 7, 2010

In the 1.6 API, is there a way to ensure that the onStart() method of a Service is called after the service is killed due to memory pressure? From the logs, it seems that the "process" that the service belongs to is restarted, but the service itself is not. I have placed a Log.d() call in the onStart() method, and this is not reached.

Android :: Sharing Resources Between Service - Application In Phone?

Feb 24, 2010

The code I am trying to implement includes a service and an application. When the application is first launched, it starts the service using the
startService(svc_name) call. Here svc name is an intent pointing to the class that runs the service.

I want to share a resource(file/socket connection) between the service and the application. For example one writes to a file and another reads from it. I am unable to get proper sync between the service and app. Could you please let me know how this can be achieved?

Android :: Upgrading Application From 1.6 To 2.2 Emulator - Not Working

Oct 5, 2010

I currently found out, that my Application developed for Android 1.6 does not work on Android 2.2. I'm quite puzzled about this, because its a very simple Application which almost does nothing. The Expeption I get is like that:
java.lang.RuntimeException: Unable to instantiate application [packagename].AndApp:
java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: [packagename].AndApp in loader

The weirdest part is, that the Class it is searching for here does not exist and never has. The app itself does nothing than show some text in a textview. In Android 1.6 I dont get this problem and I cant see a reason, it event works in 2.1. The Manifest looks like that:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<manifest xmlns:android=""
package="[packagename]" android:versionName="1.02" android:versionCode="3">
<application android:label="@string/app_name" android:icon="@drawable/stop_48"
android:description="@string/Description" android:name="@string/app_name">
<activity android:name=".DefaultActivity" android:label="@string/app_name" >
<intent-filter> <action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" />
<category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />
</intent-filter> </activity>
<uses-sdk android:minSdkVersion="4" android:targetSdkVersion="4"</uses-sdk>

Android :: Avoiding Application Restart - When Hardware Keyboard Opens

Nov 7, 2010

I am currently working on a multi-threaded game application for the Android platform. so far so good. I just got over a bug in my application which caused it to restart on orientation change (fixed by designating a specific orientation depending on the availability of a hardware keyboard or not, which is important 'cuz it is an online game with chat capabilities), and that works. BUT now i am trying to avoid the same problem when the user simply slides open the hardware keyboard. I'm not quite sure how to go about avoiding the restart of my application or the saving of the state of my application. Any solutions/suggestions?

I am rooted and rom'd and everything works great. But I have noticed that when using app killers sometimes (maybe 1 out of 10 times) When I kill all apps my SenseUI restarts. So I've started looking at the apps that are being killed before killing them to see if I could find out what is causing this but everything seems to be normal and I cant figure out why this is happening.

Android :: Possible To Restart Phone With SDK Or NDK?

May 11, 2010

Is it possible to programmatically restart the phone from a application (service) running on top of the Dalvik VM?If the SDK does not provide this functionality, then how about using the NDK and calling some functions provided by the kernel? I know this option is not preferred (not stable enough libs), but if it's the only option, I'll have to consider that as well.
