HTC Incredible : Filesystem Stock OS Basics / Which Source File Used?

Oct 29, 2010

I have a couple basic questions I'm hoping I can get answered before I start messing around with different ROMs/Radios/Kernels. Before I rooted, when I felt like things were getting cluttered or had an OCD attack, I would do a factory reset. How does that work?

What "source" files are used? Is the emmc directory the only directory not "cleaned" in a factory reset? Keep in mind I'm used to my workstation/laptop experience where I would format, then install a clean version of the OS from a CD/DVD and then I would install 3rd party apps and move my data back?

Any analogies would help my simple mind! One day I did a factory reset, the decided to root. Everything went perfect. I moved some bloatware to an apps.disabled directory, then did all my customizing again. Now I want to play with different ROMs. I do however want to hedge my bets in case I ever want to go back to where I am today. I've done a clockworkmod backup.

Does that essentially copy all the phone storage (except SD Card data) over to the SD Card? If not, what is left behind. Will a clockworkmod wipe erase ALL of the on board phone storage (except the SD Card data)?

Android : Accessing Sdcard File System Through Dev Machine Filesystem?

May 9, 2009

Is it possible to access the filesystem of an sdcard image through something like Windows Explorer?

i.e. mount the sdcard as a drive or web folder or something. I have some xml files stored on my sdcard image which I frequently want to edit.

Ideally I would like to be able to edit these files directly using my fave xml editor (either through the filesystem or webdav).But is this possible?

If not, is the only alternative to pull the xml file from the sdcard to the dev machine filesystem, edit and the push it back?

General :: How To Find Individual File On Filesystem Holding Metadata For Email

Jan 14, 2014

I received a Text message sent from an E-Mail and I was wondering if it was possible to find the individual file on the filesystem holding the metadata for the E-Mail.

If so, would I have to root the phone? And where would that file be located?

I'm a techie, so no need to warn me that I could hurt my phone or files - I'm only looking to READ, not WRITE, and I'd be making a copy of that file beforehand anyways and porting it to a PC in order to check it with whatever program is necessary to decrypt (Probably only need a hex editor.)

Android :: Porting Java App To Phone / The Basics

Oct 15, 2009

I know Java apps can be run in Android. But what I want to know is this: I have a perfectly normal Java app and I want to port it to an android platform. What changes would I need to do to my app in terms of GUI and other code to make it usable in Android? I know Android uses XML file to control the look and feel of its app. So would I need to change my GUI completely?I just want to know the general overview of how porting may be done. If anyone could point me to right resources, that would be great. Also, for your info I'm a newbie to developing android app, so please be patient with me.

LG Ally :: Basics Of Rooting - Recovery And Custom ROMs

Aug 19, 2010

I'm feeling the itch to go beyond the standard settings in Android and get into rooting. I'm following along with a lot of the developments here, but I often feel like I'm missing a lot of the background knowledge and vocabulary (what is recovery, how does one access it, what are all these different programs - nandroid, adb, etc.) to have a really strong grasp of what's going on here.

Now, if this were my computer, I'd just hop right in and start following along as best I can and mess things up along the way, no biggie, I have multiple computers and I'm competent to fix them.

I don't have a landline though, so I want to be a little more prepared before I accidentally brick my link to the outside world. Is there a good "tinkering with Android primer" out there that any of you would recommend?

Also, how easy is it to get back from whence I came on the Ally? I read the thread on unrooting, and I honestly didn't understand a lot of it, so I'm just looking for a "not gonna happen" or "it'll be easy when you finally understand."

Android :: SD Without FAT Filesystem

Sep 16, 2010

Is there a cogent reason why the SD card cannot be partitioned without a FAT32 filesystem? From all the benchmarks I've ever seen, EXT4 kills FAT32. However, when I tried using an SD card partitioned with only an EXT4 partition, vold (the volume management daemon) wasn't happy at all. can manually mount the volume from the shell, but that does no good as far as android recognizing that the partition has been mounted.I'd be willing to hack up the vold source code if it would be useful, but I just want to know if anyone has any thoughts or experience on the issue.

HTC Desire : Need To Know My Partition - Filesystem / Left Space For App?

Sep 15, 2010

Im totally new to the smartphone/android topic and very happy that i managed to partition/debrand/root my Desire and flashed LeDroids Rom on it! ^^ ( im a windows XP user )But i have some questions about my partition and filesystem: I have a 4 GB SDCARD and a 512MB Partition on it for the apps. So i figured out there is a mnt folder that seems to be like an exact copy of my SDCARD folder.

How do i know what my partition is ?

And how do i know how much space is left there for Apps?

When i plug in my Phone via micro usb and browse my SD card i dont see a MNT folder. Does that mean the MNT folder is the main partition (3,5bg?) ? Because when i download a youtube video via jetVD (i was prompted to use a download folder on my SDCARD) it saves the videos under: mntsdcardmovies (also my player shows the path to that directory)but the movie files are also available under: sdcardmovies

Could somebody explain that. btw: i use the app SUFBS to browse the SDCARD on my Desire.

Android : Show Pictures In WebView That Aren't In Filesystem

How can I show pictures in WebView without saving images into file system?

I have tried to implement my custom Content Provider, but method openFile returns ParcelFileDescriptor that points into filesystem (or socket). My pictures are in filesystem, but in encrypted form.

I have tried also URL.setURLStreamHandlerFactory, but in android java it is useless (because custom streamHandler can be register in jvm that is not allowed). I also try html code "img src="data:image.gif;base64,R0lGODlhiAAkAMQAANOOk...", but in embedded chrome it's not working.

Samsung Captivate : Filesystem Access Options / Phone Connectivity

Aug 4, 2010

I'm a big fan of just having direct access to my devices (i.e., no sync, no "management" front end). So this isn't about local access from the device (using MyFiles or Astro), but from a PC in the same location (so not like 3G remote). So far I've explored these options: USB Connect phone, mount from notification menu, and there you go. Bluetooth Pair phone, use "send file" from PC BT app (running in system tray).

Files drop into a 'bluetooth' directory, ready to move/use. Android Web OS Very beta-esque right now, but runs as a service on the phone, then you can access the filesystem (and SMS, eventually other functions). You can copy up to the phone or download (basically via a simple web mechanism). Use across Another service on the phone, a basic FTP server accessible across WiFi.

Works pretty good so far, I created a 'network location' in Windows, then a shortcut on my desktop into my MP3 directory on /sd. So I just open that folder, copy over MP3s. Doesn't matter where the phone is currently sitting or connected. For the services type options, I'm going to check out something like Locale or Tasker, when I can trigger the service to fire up based on a rule (a specific WiFi network trigger would be outstanding).
