Android :: Corrupt Contact Data ?

Oct 5, 2010

After a fight with some code intended to set contact photos in the contacts DB on 2.2, the contacts are now unable to sync - I get:

android.database.sqlite.SQLiteException: unknown error: Unable to convert BLOB to string

every time the contact provider attempts a sync, and a popup telling me that has died.

I think this means that there is duff data in ContactsContract.DATA somewhere. Is there any way to work out which mimetypes correspond to which columns and types in the DATA table, so i can sanitise it ?

Here's the stack from the crash:

Android :: Corrupt Installation - Re-install Without Losing Data?

Oct 1, 2010

I have had an app on the market for few months now. Today one of my users called with a very strange problem. The app worked fine for a few days. Then today they are unable to run it. The colors of the icon changed. The name of the app chnaged from the usual display name to the package name.and it FCs immediately upon startup. This is an app with thousands of installations. Has anyone experienced this situation before?

I am guessing corruption on the device and would like to suggest a re- install. However, how does one do a re-install without losing the data.

Android :: HttpURLConnection Returns Corrupt Data On Dev Phone

Feb 17, 2009

This is an issue that has kept me from doing real work for *a while* now:

The Task: Read an image from the net (PNG approx. 10kb) and writeit to the user dir as is.

I'm using a byte array to temporarely store the data, basically like this:


The Problem: it works - sometimes. Actually it always works in the emulator, and it usually works when attaching the debugger to the phone and stepping through the code. Interestingly it almost always produces corrupt images when running in 'normal mode' - read on the Dev1 via UMTS.

Corrupt images are good at the start of the image, and somewhere in the middle or to the end, they produce pixel trash. They can't be decoded to a Bitmap or alike as well.

I'm almost sure it's a HttpURLConnection issue, or at least related to it.

BTW. the download happens in it's own object instance, but about 10 are triggered in a loop after each other.

Android :: Need Access To Contact Data

Sep 3, 2010

Alas I have about 500 contacts in my phone book and for some reason after synch'ing them with thunderbird the display name is random last, first...first last. So I thought I would put a quick widget together to just re-do al my display names to last, first. The code I use is below, however I am not getting last / first values. The keys in the cursor exist (data1, data2), but the values were "1" and null respectively. Code...

Android :: Getting Contact Data Into Emulator

Dec 1, 2009

Do you have steps for me to pull Contact data off a phone and put it into an emulator for test purposes? The device has either the 1.5 or 1.6 SDK. An alternative datasource would a Gmail file export. If I open the Contacts app and use the Accounts menu in a 2.0 emulator the acore process of the emulator crashes. Both contacts and contact group data is needed since I do not have a 2.0 device and I have code that needs the data to run. I thought somebody on this list might easily answer.

I've noticed a lot of programs (Barcode Scanner, Where, Google Translate, Google Maps, Zedge, & others) want access to Read/Write Contact Data. Is there ANY legitimate reason I would want to allow this for these particular apps?

Android :: How To Store Data Against Specific Contact ID

Feb 16, 2010

I want to store some additional data for each contact on Android.
I would have in mind creating my own database table for it, and then bind them to the real contact via a unique id.

I am wondering if Android has built in functionality to store additional data against contacts?

Is there a defined field for birthday of the contact?
How do I store a date field?

General :: Transfer Contact Data Between IOS And Android

May 9, 2012

I found a new method to transfer contact data from Android to iPhone,I have used HTC desire for nearly one and half years and all the contact data in this device is so important for me. Then this year my brother gave me an iPhone 4S as my 21 years birthday present. It was a great gift, however, the problem comes to me that how I can transfer my contact data to my new iPhone 4s.

I searched Google and got some ways such as: using the Sim card, syncing to Google contacts; using Synkontact; or import and export my contact data using Moborobo.

I don't like to upload my contact data to any unknown internet space, so I choose not to use Google contacts and synkontact. Why? Because I don't trust any web storage space! So, Moborobo become my choice. I can safely export contact data on my HTC desire to my computer and import it to my lovely iPhone 4s. Ok, it's done! Easy and safe.

If you get other ways to transfer data between iPhone and Android.

It is throwing the following exception.


The database is initialized using the SQLLiteOpenHelper class.


How to restore from it, and how to prevent this in the future ?

Android :: Repeats Existing Data After Each Writing Same Contact

Jun 1, 2010

I met this problem at writing contacts by API for Android 2.0 or greater. Each time I write the same contact which already exist in my account (Google account) I got some part of contact aggregated ok but other did not. For example fields like FN, N, ORG, TITLE always are in one copy but TEL, EMAIL, ADR are added extra so after 2nd writing the same contact I have to copy the same TEL or EMAIL. How to force API engine to not repeat existed data?

Android : Store App-specific Synced Data With A Contact?

May 1, 2009

I would like to store some app-specific data in the contacts db. Is it safe to stuff random things into the Contacts.Settings table? Will it affect the GUI? Does anybody have an example of doing that? It's not really clear to me if there's a proper mechanism for this, or if the settings table is reserved for the systems own use.

BTW my first attempt was to use an app specific database, but then users would uninstall the app, reinstall it later and wonder why it didn't work. My second attempt was to stuff the data into the JPEG headers but the sync process deletes them, presumably for security reasons. So if there's no way to store my things in the contacts db directly, I think I'm out of luck - I'll have to look at steganographically encoding the data into the raw pixels themselves!

General :: Linux To Android - Corrupt File Transfers?

Oct 18, 2012

I have pretty much given up on trying to transfer files from my pc to my phone while running Linux.

I would guesstimate, 85% of the time, the transfered file gets corrupted. It happens on different phones and different Linux distros.

I would think the two would work well together since they both run on a Linux kernel.

I bought a Nexus One rooted, I tried to open a PDF attachment in the email app and although I have adobe reader installed quickoffice took over, I tried to uninstall quickoffice, but the button is gray faded, so are all the other buttons in the application management for quickoffice.I won't ever use the app I just want it removed or thrown so far in the background that it never interferes with anything again, since the app doesn't work at all.I was reading through other forums and couldn't find any solutions,only problems about this.

Sprint HTC Hero :: Applications Are Getting Corrupt

Nov 5, 2009

My applications are getting corrupt and I can't seem to find a cause. Some select applications such as meebo, mkremote lite, 3d cube runner, Google Sky are getting corrupt. The icons in the programs menu get changed and renamed to com.meebo.accounts.Ac... or com.escmobile.c... or End User License Ag.., etc. Some of these applications will launch and some just crash when i launch them and I would have to reinstall them to fix it however they would just get corrupt again in less than 24hours. I have a sprint htc hero.

Samsung Vibrant :: Corrupt Email App

Oct 19, 2010

I believe the stock email app (not the gmail app) that comes with the Vibrant has somehow been corrupted on my phone.

I noticed that the email app was acting strange, then a few days later, I would find my phone very hot and nearly drained of all battery (this happened about 3 times). I turned off push for my three accounts (set them to "Never"), and I haven't had the overheating problem since. That being said, nearly every time I use the email app, I have to force quit it.

Motorola Droid X :: Code Corrupt In Bootloader

Oct 8, 2010

I was following the instructions on "How to: Return DROID X Back to Android 2.1 to go from 2.2 leak, to stock 2.1 so I can get the OTA 2.2 update. I've never rooted and after RSD did several things, it gave an error something like "Error sending RAM download for bootloader..." (there was more to it than that, but I don't have it on my screen anymore). After trying several things, my phone now comes on to the bootloader, but says "Code Corrupt" then "Battery Low" and "Cannot Program" flash on individual lines below. I plugged it into an outlet for nearly two hours and I'm still getting the same thing.Anyone seen this if so how do I get beyond it? One thing I read said that he just checked "ODM_Serial" under Config>Flash/Flex options and started over and it worked. That would be great, but the computer won't recognize it as connected as long as it's doing what I described above.

Motorola Droid :: SD Card Corrupt - Reformat?

Nov 9, 2009

Has anyone experienced an corrupted SD card with their Droid? I was listening to a podcast through Listen while navigating home and the battery was getting low. But, I was nearly home so I figured it would make it. Well, it didn't. When I plugged it in it powered up and I got an error about a corrupt SD card needing a format. I removed and re-seated the card (after shutting down the phone, natch) but that didn't help. I popped it into a PC to try to do a scandisk, but the PC couldn't read it either.

I did indeed format the card. All is well so far, but it's disconcerting that this would happen after only a few days.

HTC Desire :: Corrupt SD Card - Losing Date?

Aug 5, 2010

A few days ago my Desire flashed up a warning that in future I should unmount my SD card correctly to avoid losing date. I hadn't touched it or even connected the phone to the PC.

Two days later and I wake up to find my phone has gone flat overnight and turned off, when I turned it back on it warned me that my SD card is blank and displays a permanent SD card symbol with question mark at the top of the screen.

Apart from my photos/music/video clips etc, what else should be on the card? I've noticed voice navigation doesn't work any more, the turn-by-turn just chimes at me to tell me a junction is coming up, also I've lost all my bookmark screenshots. I'm guessing there is a load of software on there such as HTC Sync?

I was hoping to use one of the free data recovery programs to see if I can recover my stuff...but tried a Sandisk demo one and it said it couldn't find any files to recover.

Only other possibility is I have 'wavesecure' installed, but once I realised you had to pay for it I left it alone. Only the backup facility is available on the demo mode, will it have done this automatically meaning I could pay for the app and be able to restore the data, or do you have to instigate the backup manually?

Motorola Droid :: Corrupt Install - Lost Everything

Sep 17, 2010

Loaded the chevy rom & kernels, did a full wipe cache and all. As I was doing the reboot, the battery died, ( I know, I should have paid attention). Anyways when it came back up, I lost EVERYTHING. Took me 20 minutes to get through the boot menu, and none of my apps will back up. Not really a big deal but the Chevy rom is acting really nutty, so I install the factory look Rom, and Im back up stable. Now I've noticed, my settings shortcut ( basically dont have any settings in menu, or icons menu) the phone dialer is GONE. I do still have the Superuser Icon is still there but if I try to open I force close. Same goes with my set CPU, its there but force closes when opened. Not sure what to do. I tried to reload another Rom, and after the 20 min download it would not prompt to restart.

HTC Incredible :: Corrupt Photo Preview Thumbnails

I've recently had a problem where ONE of my photo albums (not all) has corrupt square preview thumbnails. They look like static images off a TV with no antenna signal, and they ONLY look this way in grid mode. If I switch to filmstrip mode, they are fine. And all of the photos themselves are all fine. It's just the previews for this one album in grid mode. I tried just clearing the photo apps' cache - but no better. how to rebuild them?

General :: Corrupt Partition - How To Check First And Then Reformat

Jun 13, 2013

I've got an HTC Inspire 4G (similar to the Desire HD). I've been rooted and S-OFF since January when I switched to CM7. That was fantastic until late May. Phone started to freeze randomly. I decided to try flashing new ROM and am now using a JB ROM called Jellytime.


1. Phone freezes randomly. Removing the battery is the only way to shut it off. The time to freeze seems to get shorter and shorter eventually freezing during the boot animation. I can go in and wipe data/factory reset, wipe cache, and wipe dalvik (I'm using CWM Recovery v5.0.2.0) and flash the rom and get a little use again. But most of that time is spent signing back in with google accounts and redownloading apps.

2. I can't flash other ROMs. I've tried flashing back to CM7 or to Android Revolution which is a stock-ish ROM with no luck. With CM7 I'd get an error in recovery a little while after it started that I don't remember off the top of my head. Android Revolution uses a different revoery or flashing tool (I think that's what AROMA is) When flashing that ROM, things go well until I get the following error at which point my choice is to reboot.

assert failed:write_raw_image("/tmp/boot.img","boot")
Once I reboot I am back in Jellytime.

3. Can't mount /cache CWM Recovery will throw up some can't mount and can't open /cache errors once I "Wipe Data/Factory reset" I believe the two places it tries are /cache/recovery/log and /cache/recovery/last_log

4. Can't format System I've tried to format the /system or /data partitions using Recovery only to have an "Error: Can't format /system" returned.

Have I got a corrupt partition? My eMMC chip is fine as best I can tell. I ran 'dmesg | grep mmc0' and got the following back.

dmesg | grep mmc0
<3>[ 6.684753] mmc0: No card detect facilities available
<6>[ 6.685363] mmc0: Qualcomm MSM SDCC at 0x00000000a0500000 irq 98,0 dma 7
<6>[ 6.685638] mmc0: Platform slot type: MMC

[Code] ......

This link shows similar output for a good chip. I can't find the page now that had the messages indicating a bad chip. (browser history far too full of pages that led nowhere)

So...Have I got a corrupt partition(s)? Is there something else I should check? Is there a way to test partitions to find errors? e2fsck? How can I reformat things (from adb is fine with some guidance) if this is my issue and if that is the fix?

HTC EVO 4G :: Clear Data In Contact Storage Delete Phone Entries Only?

Aug 3, 2010

If I clear the data in the "Contacts Storage" tab of "Manage Applications" will this only delete the data stored on the phone itself or will it also delete the contact on the exchange server as well? I have some contacts that are duplicates because they were put in the phone before I was able to get the exchange sync set up resulting in an entry for exchange and an entry for phone when in the "People" area.

I'm trying to update from Villian 5.3 to 10.2. But keep getting E:corrupt file messages and E:verification failed. I followed the tutorial that's how I was able to do 5.3, but don't matter. How many times I download it 10.2 just keeps coming up with the same message when I try to flash it, usual the file it claims is corrupted is different for different downloads, never had this before with any flashing I've done.
