General :: Themes Not Applying Correctly On 4.1.2

Jan 27, 2013

I bought a theme off the market for GoSMS and GoContacts (the theme also has ones for GoLocker and GoLauncher as well which work fine). I have downloaded and installed the themes and gone through the steps to apply it but it does not show the theme. I had read that there is an issue with themes running Jelly Bean and typically if you can get the dev to email you the apk it will work. I have tried contacting the dev multiple times with no response. Any other way to get these items to work correctly? I know there are other options than the ones I selected but I really liked the look of this theme and am kind of picky. The items are linked below:

HTC EVO 4G :: Fresh Updater Mark Upon Applying Themes

Jul 12, 2010

Subject pretty much explains it all. Google wasn't much help.Essentially after Fresh Updater (from 0.5.3) downloads a theme and attempts to apply, my phone reboots with the recovery screen and a "?" above the phone icon instead of a "!"Any help is wonderfully appreciated.Edit: I say instead of a "!" but maybe this isn't even what it's supposed to do.

Android :: Views And Their Child Views - How To Avoid The Ugly - Boxes - When Child Views In A View Has Another Color Than Background

Jan 6, 2010

I have a simple ListView and on that ListView I have placed a number of custom defined Views. The CustomView has ImageView and two TextViews.

The CustomView also has a "stateful drawable" as background, so that the background image (a 9-patch) changes if you press the Row in the ListView. When pressing the Row, the background image changes to a Red-ish thing.

The problem is that when the background changes from the default greyish, all the Views in the CustomView (ImageView and TextViews) still have their greyish background and thus creates very ugly greay boxes on top of the now redish background.

What is the best way to solve that problem? I hoped that such things were handled automatically (as it is done in for example .NET), but I was wrong it seems.

Android :: How Can Update The All The Views Inside A TabHost When Pressing On A ContextMenu Item From Within One Of The Views

Nov 16, 2010

I am implementing a music player application in Android. My play list selection screen is implemented as a tab selector widget which contains a ListActivity inside each of the tabs: Artist, Albums, Songs.
I want to update the ListView in each of the ListActivity when I delete an item from any of the lists.

i.e. When I long press an item in the Artists list a context menu is drawn with "Delete Artist"
And it should delete all the songs from this artist in the Songs ListView, delete all the albums by this artist in the Albums ListView, and finally delete the entry for the artist in the Artist ListView.

Each of the ListActivity has its own fillData() method, which updates the ListView when the button in the context menu is pressed.

How can I call the fillData() method of the Albums ListActivity after I update the ListView inside of the Artists ListActivity?

Android :: Switching Views With RadioButton And Saving Views In Bundle

Mar 6, 2010

I have the following XML code:.................

The idea is to change the views, whenever I press one of the radio buttons. When I press a button the first time everything works out fine, but the second time I press a button, I get an IllegalStateException, and I can't quite see why I'm getting this.

Also, the Activity seems to set all my global variables to null, which is why I have to create them every time I switch from portrait to landscape or vice versa. So I would like to know if there is a way I can save my views in the Bundle, or any other way in which I can permanently save my views, so I don't have to add or create them every time, I flip the phone. And whenever I flip the phone, it seems that it rereads the main XML file, causing the RadioGroup to be set to 2D even if the 3D button is checked. This is because I've said the 2D button to be checked from when the app is first created, but I would like to also save the state of that RadioGroup.

Android :: Do Root Views Of An Activity In Android Have Any Prior Knowledge Of The Child Views That Will Be Loaded Into Them

Jan 25, 2010

Is there any way to query a root view of an activity for all of its child views even before the root view or its children have been inflated? I guess what I'm looking for is whether a view knows ahead of time what children it will have before it gets inflated, and can I get that list in some way. Bizarre I realize, but I think it will help me with some unconventional automation testing I'm working on. I haven't found anything in the API like this.

Android :: Applying Style To Textview

Jan 10, 2010

I am trying to apply common style to different textview that can be either defined in a layout xml file or programmatically and that does not seem to work for some attributes: My style in styles.xml is:

<style name="ListName"> <item name="android:colorForeground">#f0f</item> <item name="android:padding">4sp</item> <item name="android:textSize">30sp</item> <item name="android:textColor">#CCC</item> <item name="android:gravity">left</item> <item name="android:typeface">serif</item> <item name="android:textStyle">bold</item> <item name="android:colorBackground">#999</item> </style>

In my layout xml i have <TextView style="@style/ListName" ...></ TextView> and in my activity java class i have: TextView nametv = new TextView(this,null,; However some parameters does not seem to work very well: - textStyle to bolditalic does not seems to be recognized - textColor/colorForeground/colorBackground does not work at all. I have been through the documentation, but could not find precise reference documentation for that attributes, nor sample for the color setting.

Android :: Applying Theme To App Widget

Android :: Preference Activity And Theme Not Applying

Apr 11, 2010

I have a problem in the Preferences Activity, in the main preferences the theme shows ok, but if I get to a sub preference, the theme gets messy, it is not white as it should, it is all dark, and the font is black so you can't see much, and when I start clicking on any items they will get sometimes white as they should but revert to black soon after. This is only happens on 2.1, in both the real device and emulator. Tested on the emulator running 1.6 and it was working correctly.

Android :: Applying Effects To Camera Viewfinder

Dec 11, 2009

One approach I've looked at is to use the preview callback, asking for a JPEG buffer. Unfortunately, the HTC phones I've tried this on all call back at several second intervals and give me an NV12 buffer regardless of the pixel format you specify. (Anyone know the behaviour on a droid?) I can code my way around the NV12 hassle but I can't exactly do much when the callbacks are so seldom; I want around 10 fps.

The approach I was considering was making an opencore codec for mjpeg. Which leads me to two questions before I start:

1) can third-parties make and install opencore codecs, or is this strictly locked down? Is it to just drop an .so in the right folder, or?

2) do the HTC phones use the default encoders? (i.e. will using the same way the default opencore reference codecs get their pixel buffers work on the phone?)

General :: Android 2.2 - Applying Animation To SurfaceView

Feb 17, 2012

I'm working on a puzzle game for Android 2.2, what I want to do is a simple fade-in fade-out of the whole game screen, during level changing. I tried with an AlphaAnimation from 1.0f to 0.0f and vice-versa, and it works perfectly if I start it from a View, but if I try to start it from the SurfaceView which I used to write my game engine nothing happens.

I put a completely black ImageView on top of my surfaceview, and applied the animation to this imageView. This is my layout

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<FrameLayout xmlns:android="<not allowed to post external links...>"

Android :: Best Site For Rooting And Applying Custom ROMs?

Jan 4, 2010

So I am pretty computer savvy but just getting into the phone scene. Wondering what site is best for the hacker side talk of phones?
Androidcommunity vs Androidforums vs XDA dev forums?

Which is better for instructions on rootings and applying custom ROMs?
Which is better for finding ROMs?
Which has more users?
Which has more experts?

Anyone familiar with the other site or one I may not know about can fill me in a bit? I seem to like this site the most but if there is more information elsewhere, I may need to pool my resources. I would prefer for android forums to be my 1 stop shop n go.

HTC Incredible :: Applying Update Using Easiest Method

Nov 15, 2010

My phone is currently rooted and it was done using unrEVOked. I did not apply any custom ROMS; the only change I made was moving the Amazon and VZ Navigator apps. I selected the option to reboot and install the update when I was prompted to do so, but it just became stuck at a screen that said "Rebooting..." and it never changed. I powered it off and then back on, but the update never applied. I have not been prompted to install the update since then. I would like to apply the November update using the easiest method. If I have to unroot it, I don't care because root access isn't that important to me. I have read these instructions, but they're incomplete as they don't show you how to actually perform the steps listed, specifically step #1
