HTC Hero :: Enabling GPS Satellites - To Check Or Not To Check

Nov 6, 2009

Menu - Settings - Location - Enable GPS satellites

It states that enabling this will "require more battery plus view of sky"

When checked, it states "deselect to conserve battery"

So, the question is, should this be enabled?

I imagine for some applications, knowing your precise location should be useful, especially if the turn-by-turn maps are installed and used.

I'm thinking to deselect this, and selecting it at times when I need it.

So, to check or not to check?

I know there isn't a firmware update but for the past 2 days when I go in and check for Firmware updates it says "checking for Firmware update" then it just dissapears, it no longer comes back with "No update available". Anyone else having this problem? I powercycled and pulled the battery and it still does this. It also fails updating my profile and fails updating the PRL. All other data features work just fine.

HTC EVO 4G :: Credit Check On Upgrade

May 17, 2010

I'm sure most people knew this but what with the premium add on charge of $10, I wanted to be sure. Since I am going through a refi on my mortgage, I didn't want another credit check. Sprint confirmed for me, in writing, that a new check is not required if you are going through an upgrade...only at "original" activation.

Android :: Possible To Check .apk Signature?

Oct 6, 2010

I haven't really concerned myself with app piracy; I only have one app under my belt for Android, it's in beta and it's free. I'm about to start development on another app and looking to use ProGuard for obfuscation and LVL as I would like to make it a paid app, and I've been wondering something ever since the news that LVL had been circumvented months ago.Is it possible to check the .apk's signature from within the API? If not currently, perhaps Google might add some code to Android itself or to the API to enable LVL to make sure that the.apk signature matches the signature that Android Market already has on file?

Android :: Need To Check GPS Accuracy

Feb 11, 2009

I'm writing a mapping application. In simple terms, it sends some info about the user's current location to a server when the user clicks on a button. I need the location to be absolutely correct, and when I first started to implement LocationListener, I found that it often wasn't. So I've used location.getAccuracy() to check the GPS accuracy, and warn the user - without submitting the data - if the location isn't accurate enough. Code...

HTC EVO 4G :: Rooted - Check - Install A ROM

Sep 5, 2010

I have taken a lot of steps this evening... I had Stock 2.2 OTA, which I was able to downgrade to 2.1-update1. I tried the unrevoked method a number of times, but perhaps (as some stated) because I have Windows 7 64 bit, I never was able to get through the process.

I used Simple Root, which didn't work initially, but I forced some updates through adb (and looking at Toast Method). In any case, I think I'm rooted now, but not completely sure.

I have a # cursor, instead of a $, so I think that indicates root.. I also can reboot into clockwork recovery.

However, Rom Manager indicates it doesn't have permission, therefore, I can't get any ROMs to update. I tried to rename the ROMs as, but that didn't work. I noticed the ROM Manager appears to be looking for an older version of Clockwork, and perhaps that why it doesn't recognize it.

In short,

How can I make sure I'm rooted?
How can I update a ROM?
In particular I want a 2.2 ROM (probably Fresh).

Android :: How To Check If GPS Signal Is Available / Not?

Jul 6, 2010

Can anyone tell me if and how it is possible to check if the GPS signal is available or not. So not wanting to know if gps is enable or not but if a signal is received. GPSstatus doesn't seem to be about that nor does the onStatusChanged of the LocationListener. At least it doesn't seem to report the signal. What I try to do is display an alert when signal is lost (when driving in a tunnel) and hide the alert as soon as the device is receiving the signal again. So it's not only about the firstFix but every time the signal is lost or back again... Probably not the only person in the world wanting to know this ;-) and it should be possible since the gps icon in the phonedisplay is doing the same.
