HTC Desire :: Anything To Do As Priority With New Handset?

Jun 29, 2010

I have got myself an HTC Desire as my Orange upgrade. The tariff is really good for me and I'm blown away by how good the phone is. I have been using an iPhone for work and asides from the games on the application store, the Desire is just so much better. So I'm working my way slowly through these threads. Anything I should do as a priority now that I have my new handset.

HTC Desire :: Handset Overheating And Restarting

Sep 24, 2010

My Desire is about 2 months old and has began rebooting at random times. At first it only happened if i was on a call whilst charging the phone. The phone cuts out then immediately restarts. The O2 screen appears, then the HTC screen then I have to enter my pin. On some occasions, It happens over and over again before I even get the pin entered. Since then, it has happened when the phone is charging and not being used, as well as when I am on a call, but not charging. The phone gets extremely hot near the bottom. I opened it and removed the battery and it is the phone not the battery that warms up. The battery stays cool. I have restored to factory default and installed no apps, but it still occurs randomly. O2 business said I can only have a re-furbished handset!! how does that work? surely if a product is faulted it should be replaced with a new unit. It was only 6-8 weeks old when i first reported it to them. Also the wall charger seems to get very hot, but only sometimes. Anyone come across anything similar with overheating handset or charger?

HTC Desire :: Debranded Orange Handset - WiFi

Sep 21, 2010

I deranged my Orange handset and upgraded to FroYo last night using the method on this site whereby you place the file on your goldcard and reboot your phone in recovery mode (I'm sure someone knows what i mean, although I can't find the thread or explain in more technical detail what I'm on about!). Everything worked perfectly until today when I foolishly did an OTA update without my goldcard in, thus disabling my WiFi capabilities! how I get my WiFi to work again? 2.10.405.2 seems to be the software version I'm currently on.

Android :: Service Thread Priority

Dec 16, 2009

I have two apps that use a service to upload and download files and data. I've noticed that when the service gets very busy, it can cause the UI to block, up to the point that Android shows a "force quit/ wait" popup. In order to avoid that, I run tasks in a service at a lower priority. This way, the service will never cause the UI to hickup. Also, the service stops if the app hasn't been used for a certain number of minutes. I don't want to keep resources if the user isn't using my app.I have found that some of my users run apps that run services permanently at normal priority. Such a service starts at phone switch on, and keeps running indefinitely, downloading vast amounts of data. My policy of being nice to other apps doesn't pay off: these agressive third party services push my service away so it never gets anything done. As one of my users told me, my app has hickups, until he kills the service of this app X, after which my app runs smoothly, snappy, and fast.

My question is, should I be nice to other apps and to the UI in my own app, or should I just run a service and agressively take all resources I need - or don't need? This is one issue where Android is different from iPhone. We can run services, but by doing so, we can cause damage to other peoples apps. Of course, my "question" doesn't require an answer. I'm just curious after what other people think, what your experience here is.

Android :: Increasing Priority Of Activity

May 14, 2010

Let me say this with an example. Lets say, my activity A is being executed, meanwhile another activity B gets launched. By default, acivity B will come on top of activity A. My requirement is that I want to keep A on top. Only activities such as phone, lock screen and home screen can come on top of me not other activities unless my activity closes.

Android :: Setting Priority For Service

Aug 13, 2010

Is there a standard way in Android to create an unkillable service with very high priority, assuming you have complete access to the device (as in you're building your own device on something like a beagleboard, not just installing an app)? I'm playing around with sip phone stuff, and it seems like just doing it as an app isn't going to work if you want high voice quality. (Assuming you want to be able to let the user switch away from the actual sip app and use different apps; all the sip phones I've tried have failed to maintain decent audio if you're multitasking.) Or would you just run the phonecall software outside Android in a normal Linux process and communicate with Android apps over sockets?

Android :: Internet Connection Priority

Oct 27, 2010

I am a newbie to Android so please excuse me if this is a silly question or one that has been answered many times before. When connecting to and using the Internet, I am trying to find out what determines the connection that the phone will use when more than one connection is available: Wifi, 3G etc. Is there a standard priority order for connection and use? can the user set the priority order? Usually I would expect the wifi connection to be preferred for reasons of speed and cost. I have looked at my phone user guide and the official Android user guide but cannot find any information about this.

Android :: Set Priority To Broadcast Receiver

Oct 24, 2010

The symptom: I have a broadcast receiver that listen to sms, when a sms is received, i call an activity to display. It works all fine if the screen is on and not locked. But when screen is locked, and as soon as i received the sms, the activity popup for a second then disappeared and I use the code to unlock the screen.

getWindow().addFlags(WindowManager.LayoutParams.FLAG_SHOW_WHEN_LOCKED | WindowManager.LayoutParams.FLAG_DISMISS_KEYGUARD);

I think it might be the competitions with phone default sms program (the sms default program shows a notification only). I am wondering is there a way to set priority to broadcast receivers or even the activity that receiver stared, to avoid the conflicts between multiple receivers. or set orders to execute one by one? I have tried to thread.sleep my receiver for a second, still not working.

HTC Incredible :: Data Plan - Top Priority

Jun 20, 2010

Remember when choosing your minutes was the single most important thing on your cell plan? Then slowly, texting options became more important? Now, with smartphones everywhere, I see the Data Plan as the most important option. As for me, when I see the incredible, I see so much more than just a phone. For me, the phone part seems more like a tacked on feature in that the device is so much more capable than a mere phone. With its constant connection to the internet and its ability to run apps ranging from anything to everything you can imagine, the Incredible seems to fully capture the term 'Personal Computer'. Of course, having minutes to talk on your phone is important, but is that slowly becoming less and less a priority? With the availability of Skype and other VoIP services, could cell phone plan minutes be a thing of the past in the not to distant future?

Android :: Threadpool With Good Priority

Aug 24, 2010

So from what I've known, if I do an AsyncTask inside an Activity, the task may be killed when user quits the Activity before it is finished. One solution I've seen is using IntentService, which the system will try hard not to kill. My problem is that IntentService only uses one background thread to run all the tasks one by one. I have several independent tasks that I wish to run concurrently, and that makes a difference in the UI (not serious, but could surprise user). How do I accomplish this? I imagine I could have several IntentService but this seems awkward and not scalable. How do I maintain sort of a threadpool that has a good priority, so that it won't get killed to easily by the system? If I start a (normal) Service, then launch some AsyncTasks within there, does that result in a higher priority?

General :: How To Give App Higher Priority

Mar 27, 2014

So there are a few apps which I want staying in memory. I.E. I don't want Android to kill it. Is there such an app that can do this and if not, is there a script? I believe Super Charger? If Super Charger, how do I use it?

To summarize, I want a few apps (the phone, the messaging, true caller, and ex dialer) to get highest priority/never die.

Is this possible?

Android :: Gmail Priority Inbox Notifications

Sep 2, 2010

Does anyone know how to set it so that my Android phone only notifies me when I get a message in my "Priority Inbox" (the new feature Google just launched in case you don't know what it is)?With my email I receive a bunch of newsletters, so instead of being notified every time one of them arrives I'd like to be notified only when messages in my Priority Inbox arrive.Being able to be alerted to messages with certain labels only would also work.

Android :: Application Priority - Graphics Stutter

Nov 18, 2009

I have an app which within the main Activity a SensorListener is setup. The listener detects changes from the accelerometer and sends updates to various child views, which update the display. When the app first start up, it's great - the graphics are smooth and the sensor notifications are immediately reflected in the views. Then after a few minutes it starts to stutter, making the display very jerky - and for the purpose of this app quite unusable. I've done some logging and the sensor updates are still being passed, but they start stacking up and all get sent in batches. It's like the system has put this app down the priority list after it's been running a while. I've added some garbage collecting but it only seemed to help a little. What could be happening here? How can I try and keep this app at the top of the priority list?

Android :: Set Thread Priority Of Media Player

Feb 9, 2010

I am programming a game with fast graphics. The MediaPlayer is stuttering sometimes. When I have the MediaPlayer in a service, it does not stutter, but some people here adviced me not to use services if they should stop automatically when the user ends my application. So how can I set the thread-priority of the MediaPlayer-Object? SoundPool uses the MediaPlayer and with SoundPool, you can set the thread-priority, but I cannot add my audio-file to SoundPool, because its size is about 2mb (too big for SoundPool). I can lower my main-thread-priority so that the MediaPlayer has a relatively higher priority, but isn't this a bad idea?

Android :: Change Broadcast Receiver Priority

May 5, 2009

I have developed a music player and the application defines a broadcast receiver that handles MediaButton intents:

<receiver android:name="MediaButtonIntentReceiver"> <intent-filter android:priority="32000"> <action android:name="android.intent.action.MEDIA_BUTTON"/> </intent-filter> </receiver>

which works well. My question is if it was possible to change the priority of this receiver from within the settings activity of my application. That way people could choose if they wanted my player as default handler of the headset buttons or not.

Samsung Fascinate :: Facebook Linked Contact Priority

Nov 21, 2010

I want to link a few of my contacts with facebook so that I pull facebook info and get their profile pic. I know how to do this. However, I'd prefer to keep the name I already have for them on my phone. For example: Say I have "Jon" saved on my phone. His facebook profile name is Jon McJonjon. When I link the profiles, now his contact will read Jon McJonjon. I'd prefer to keep the name I previously had for him as his contact name. Any way to prioritize which profile you're linking is the main contact name that shows up under the contacts list?

Android :: Set And Get Thread Priority From Java And Native Layers?

May 10, 2010

I have a multithreaded streaming app which has mainly the following 5 threads. 1 Main App(UI) Thread 1 controller thread (in native) 1 audio decoder thread (in native) 1 video decoder thread(in native) 1 thread to query the head position of audio (in Java) Apart from this I have video rendering with OpenGL. My problem is, if I query the thread priority using the Thread.getPriority method (my native threads make callbacks to Java and I am making the query at that point of time), I am getting the priority of each of them as 5. For my audio query thread (the last one in the list) I am explicitly setting the priority using Process.setThreadPriority(Process.THREAD_PRIORITY_URGENT_AUDIO); Also for my decoder threads, I am giving higher priority than my controller thread(using pthread APIs in native). But still finally all of them seem to have same priority. Also what should I be doing to increase the priority of my threads(both from Java and native)?

Samsung Captivate :: Phone Calls Not Taking Priority Over Other Sounds?

Sep 14, 2010

I have looked and cannot find the answer to this puzzle. The other day my wife came home and said that while she was talking on the phone she got a text message. She has a "Joe Dirt" sound notification for it and said that it began to play loud in the phone while she was talking. The other person could not hear it but she could. Today I am using RingDroid to make a ring tone and I get a call. The screen switches over to answer or not answer with no other options meanwhile the song is still playing. I figure if I answer the phone the call will over ride the music... wrong! As soon as I answer the music stops in the speaker and starts playing through the ear piece really loud. I can barely hear the other person through the music so I put them on hold while I try to navigate back to ringdroid which has vanished so I can push stop. While I'm trying to get back to it, it finally stops because it was set to play for 30 seconds. I go back to the call and ask if they heard that and they say no. This has to be fixed. What do I need to do?

HTC Magic :: Wifi Priority - Multi Tasking To Switch Between Applications?

Jul 22, 2009

Just two quick questions: When connected to wifi, do internet connections made on the device automatically go via wifi as opposed to 3g etc and if not then is there a way to organize which wireless connection 'methods' have higher priority (i am worried about excessive data costs). Second question is: Is there any multi tasking support on the Magic and if so then how do you switch between applications?
