HTC Hero : Dumped TouchFlo And Gone To Straight Android

Aug 9, 2009

I got fed up with slow responses, graphical fripperies that get in the way and occasional incompatibilities and have now dumped the HTC user interfaces as I wasn't using their widgets anyway, that's all you really lose. Even HTC's home app has an annoying "overshoot" for effect when scrolling from one screen to the next, which just gets in the way. Looks nice at first but gets annoying after a week or so. Am now using stock Android and the phone's a lot quicker.

HTC Hero : TouchFLO Crashing - Please Try Again

Sep 27, 2009

Ive had my shiny new hero for a couple of days now and updated the firmware via the HTC site as soon as I took it out of the box.

Im finding that quite frequently im getting a popup window telling me...

"The application TouchFLO (Process has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again.)

I then have to force close and wait a while for the touchFlo to restart... sometimes only to recieve the same message again only moments later!

Ive disconnected from facebook and stopped updating my contacts via google but to no avail! a factory reset fixed the problem only for a few hours! Ive not got alot of apps installed (I left most out after the factory reset) so i doubt its an app causing the problem.

I have also noticed (i dont think this is likely to be related?) that I dont have the Java app installed after the firmware update (its not in my app collection)

I would be sooo greatful if anybody has a solution... when its working this phone is just awsome!! but this is happening far to often, ive been looking forward to getting my hands on a Hero for months now but this has kinda taken the shine off im afraid

HTC Hero :: Emails Does Not Always Come Through Straight Way

Oct 28, 2009

i have 3 accounts set up on the phone, blueyonder(virgin media) hotmail and gmail. I use my blueyonder account for my job and it is important that emails reach me in a timely manner, i have come from a blackberry so no probs there. The porblem i am having is the dont always come through straight away, i have the phone set to check server every 5 mins, yesterday evening at 18.00 i received 9 mails all at once which had been sent from 14.00 onwards in the afternoon. I have also have had it when emails have come through a day late. Does anyone get the same problems, is this a phone problem or a virgin media problem, i suppose it could be a connection problem but i have wifi at my home and this was on from when i got home.

HTC Hero :: Regardless Of Signal Connection Calls Going Straight To Voicemail

Jan 4, 2010

I have used my Hero in 2 different countries and I get the same problem: Regardless of signal connection, I miss half (a guess) of all calls made to me. People tell me it finally dials after a few straight-to-voicemail tries. This didn't happen with any of my previous phones (Nokias and Motos), in both of the aforementioned countries. I really hope my rubber case has all to do with this because I bought the phone from eBay (i.e. no warranty).

Android :: Unable To Playback Dumped H264 Stream

Aug 7, 2010

I am trying to dump h264 encoded bitstream to a file(video recording usecase). I had added the code for the file dump in the OMX FillBufferDone () callback. [Fillbufferdoneprocessing() function in pvmf_omx_enc_node.cpp] In the dump, what I observed is that the start code is not present and I think the SPS and PPS sequences are getting dumped. I am unable to playback the dumped stream. I am using 'ffplay' player.

Android :: Dumped XML Layout File Padding Positions Not Behaving Correctly

Dec 30, 2009

I've been trying to figure out how to make some sense of a dumped XML layout, and it's progressing 'pretty good'. The only thing I'm currently unsure about is the following:

When I use the command:

aapt dump xmltree <pathofapk> <pathofxmlfile>

I get the following result:


That's all good, but what I'm trying to figure out is how to convert the following code into the XML layout file:


Converting those values to decimal would result in:


All good, but I've been trying to figure out what the (type 0x5 means). With all other types, the result is defined in the Android.util.TypedValue.class file

Decompiling that, gives the following result for 0x5:


Makes sense, in a way. But, I need to know what kind of value it is, so looking down, I find the following value:


But, when I try to use 2561mm and 1025mm (It's a tad much anyway, 25cm is.. larger than my screen), The whole screen is filled with the 'parent LinearLayout'.

Motorola Droid 2 :: Contact Management - Google Contacts Dumped On Phone

Oct 28, 2010

Nothing seems to be working, so I figured I would give this a shot. I have a new Droid 2 from Verizon and it is a Motorola phone. ALL my Google contacts have been dumped on the phone. I have already verified that is ALL contacts, not just "My Contacts" and there doesn't seem to be any way to get it to just My Contacts.

I tried creating a group in the GMail contacts list for just the phone numbers I wanted, but there is zero way to get to that list. The only options I have when I open up Contacts in terms of filtering is All Contacts/Google contacts/Phone contacts. (The latter has no contacts in it because I prefer to have my phone numbers synced as a backup.)

My contact list is so large that when I go to text someone or pull up the contact list, it takes about five minutes for the list to propagate. All I want is my own user-defined list -- and have NO other contacts on the phone (not just filtered out, although I would take that, but not existing, period). The GMail app would be able to find any other contact anyways, so I don't need it in the actual phone book. I've looked everywhere on Google and it seems like no solutions out there seem to exist for me. All I want is to limit my contact list. I used to have Facebook and Twitter under Social Networking as well, but that just made my contacts list even worse so I got rid of those. Ideally I would like to get these back as well and just have them leave my contacts list alone.

Android :: Following Straight Line (via Path)?

Nov 4, 2010

I'm working on a game which will use projectiles. So I've made a Projectile class and a new instance is created when the user touches the screen:

public boolean onTouch(View v, MotionEvent e){
float touch_x = e.getX();
float touch_y = e.getY();
new Projectile(touch_x, touch_y);

And the Projectile class:
public class Projectile{
float target_x;
float target_y;
Path line;

public Projectile(float x, float y)
target_x = x;
target_y = y;
line = new Path();
line.moveTo(MyGame.mPlayerXPos, MyGame.mPlayerYPos);
line.lineTo(target_x, target_y);

So this makes a Path with 2 points, the player's position and and touch coords. My question is - How can you access points on this line? For example, if I wanted to get the x,y coords of the Projectile at the half point of the line, or the point the Projectile would be at after 100 ticks (moving at a speed of X pixels/tick)? I also need the Projectile to continue moving after it reaches the final point. Do I need to use line.addPath(line) to keep extending the Path?

I managed to get the Projectiles moving in a straight line, but they're going in strange directions. I had to fudge some code up:
private void moveProjectiles(){
ListIterator<Projectile> it = Registry.proj.listIterator();
while ( it.hasNext() ){
Projectile p =;

double dist = p.TimeAlive * p.Speed;
float dx = (float) (Math.cos(p.Angle) * dist);
float dy = (float) (Math.sin(p.Angle) * dist);
p.xPos += dx;
p.yPos += -dy;

The Angle must be the problem. I'm using this method, which works perfectly:
private double getDegreesFromTouchEvent(float x, float y){
double delta_x = x - mCanvasWidth/2;
double delta_y = mCanvasHeight/2 - y;
double radians = Math.atan2(delta_y, delta_x);
return Math.toDegrees(radians);
However, it returns 0-180 for touches above the center of the screen, and 0 to -180 for touches below.

Android :: Widget To Get Straight To 'network Operators'

Mar 16, 2010

Sometimes my phone loses signal, and then doesn't pick it up as quickly as I'd like.Normally,I go into settings, to 'wireless controls, mobile networks, network operators' to force it to pick up my network. I'm looking for either an app/widget/shortcut to take me straight from my homescreen to 'network operators' without having to click through the various settings menus, or advice on building the link myself.

Android :: TranslateAnimation Doesn't Animate Straight (X-only) But Also In Y-direction (diagonal) / Fix It?

Oct 26, 2010

I have a TranslateAnimation that shall animate a LinearLayout (isScrollContainer) to the left and to the right along the x-axis. The animation to the left works and the animation is straight - means that the view is animated horizontally only.

But the animation left to right doesn't work: instead of just moving the view from left to right along the x-axis, the view gets animated into the screen from diagonal lower-right corner. But for the Y parameters I pass fixed identical values.

Here is a flv movie that shows the animation and issue I described:

Code as follows...

Android :: Straight Forward Broadcast Receiver To Open / Read File

Apr 16, 2009

I would like my app to pop up in the list of options for opening certain file types in the various file manager, email, and web browser apps. I'm having trouble figuring out how to begin. I haven't found any examples of this sort of thing yet. Don't I need to know what kind of action the other app is trying to invoke on a selected file? How can I possibly know that? Or should I simply assume that all file manager, email, and browser apps will always use ACTION_VIEW or perhaps ACTION_EDIT when trying to send a file to another app? Must I simply assume this and hope I'm right? There are so many possible apps to try to get this to work with, how do I make it receive a "open-file" command from any arbitrary app? Is the code below correct so far? I have the following in the manifest:

<receiver android:enabled="true" android:exported="true" android:label="Some Label, where does this show up?" android:name=".MyBroadcastReceiver" >
<intent-filter> <action android:name="android.intent.action.ACTION_EDIT" />
</intent-filter> <intent-filter> <action android:name="android.intent.action.ACTION_VIEW" /> </intent-filter> </receiver>

I don't see how to specify a file-type or file extension filter in the receiver. How do I do this? Likewise I have the following in the receiver:

public class MyBroadcastReceiver extends BroadcastReceiver {
@Override public void onReceive(Context context, Intent intent) {
if (intent.getAction().equals("android.intent.action.ACTION_EDIT")
|| intent.getAction().equals("android.intent.action.ACTION_VIEW")) {
Uri uri = intent.getData(); String uriStr = intent.getDataString();
} } }
