How To Access System Clock / Time

Apr 28, 2012

I'm new to android development and I'm just trying to find my way around with various tutorials. As my first project I'm trying to create a simple night clock, but I don't know how to access the system clock/time.

How exactly would one go about doing this? I simply want to display the time on the screen, and then add some other stuff to it later.

HTC Incredible :: How To Know Which System DINC Using To Access Internet At Any Given Time

May 14, 2010

New to Android, not new to smartphones. My BB Storm didn't have WiFi though which is the root of my question.

How do I know which system DINC is using to access internet at any given time? For example, if I am at home connected via WiFi is my DINC using WiFi or 3G to connect to the internet? Also, when my DINC synchs up my accts (Facebook, Weatherbug, Native Weather App, Gmail and Mail) is it using 3G or WiFI? Can I set a preferred connection somewhere? I've looked, but can't seem to find something like that.

Samsung Galaxy S : Recovery Boot Error - Can Not Access To /system/csc/VOD/system

Sep 4, 2010

Phone: UK Galaxy S Issue: Recovery boot error message in red writing

Multicsc : can not access to / system/csc/VOD/system/

Background: I have been trying to root my phone from information found in a youtube video. All went well and the little ninja bloke with the sniper rifle was in the app list. Tried installing busybox and was told that the phone was not rooted´┐Ż..

I think I ran the root application again and at some point I started getting this error message when in recovery. I have since run the one click root method to unroot the phone and the little nija dude is no longer there. Since I rooted the phone it will no longer connect to my wireless network, it finds the network and attempts to obtain an ip address. After a few min it times out and tries again. When I load the phone recovery the error message is still present.

HTC Droid Eris :: Clock Widgets / Time Not Updating

Jan 6, 2010

When I have an HTC Clock widget on my home screen the time does not update fluidly. The clock will display the correct time only after I've unlocked the phone and given it several seconds to update. If I swipe over to another screen, wait any period of time (the longer the better), and swipe back; the clock will display the time at which I left that screen and again needs several seconds before it leaps to the correct time. I've tested this theory on the native Android clock widget and it worked correctly. IMO, it defeats the purpose of having the HTC clock widget when the clock in the notifications bar is always accurate. I am also using ATK but I've made sure the Clock process/app is in the ignore list.

Android :: Phone Clock Always Delayed In Telling Time / Way To Set?

Aug 12, 2010

My clock always gets delayed. I always have to connect to the network or wifi to get a time update, it gets delayed 2 or 3 times a day. some times even after a time update it pushes back the time for 5 minutes more or less. I'm thinking if I don't update 2 or more time a day, in a week my clock would be delayed by an hour or so.

Android :: Screen Capture And Time Clock Synchronization Applications?

Sep 12, 2010

I am new here and I came from Symbian and Linux, for all the phones I've used there are at least one application for screen capture and one for time clock synchronization, both are very useful and basic task we will do with a smartphone, but on the Android I found none that can work without a 'rooted' phone. I don't know how other phones do it, but I know the reason for a 'rooted' phone is to be able to access the framebuffer for screen capture for example and this may be risky, I suppose it is simply a sub-routine call to the BIOS will do without the need for a complete 'open access' system. I know there is a way to capture the screen without a rooted phone, but the phone must be connected to a PC and I feel this is dumb and inconvenient, I may be completely wrong about Android, please fill me in.

General :: S4 (I337-M) Clock Widget Time Update Delay

Nov 5, 2013

Running into another issue regarding my S4 here. Before the 4x2 clock widget I had would always be in sync to that of my carrier's time. Now, when I scroll around my phone or go back to check the time or even after unlocking my device, the widget is a good minute or two behind of my actual provider's time. It takes itself about 30 seconds to correct itself, I was just curious if there is anything I can do to fix this issue?

HTC EVO 4G : How Can I Access SD Card / File System?

Jul 2, 2010

Ok just got my EVO yesterday. This is not only my first android phone, but my first smart phone as well. I'm fairly savvy when it comes to computers and techy stuff, but I do have what sounds like a ridiculous question. I bluetoothed some files (songs and pictures) from my old phone to my EVO. It acknowledged getting them and indeed I was able to play them from the notification area after receiving them. However, now I cannot find anyplace to 'browse' the phone folders or the SD card folders so I can find and utilize these files. How do you access the SD card or the file system?

Samsung Behold 2 :: Clock Widgets Stop Refreshing The Time - Remove Home++?

Aug 10, 2010

Recently I installed BHMAN's 1.6 ROM without TW, and I'm having a problem where sometimes my clock widgets stop refreshing the time.

Now i've searched for this problem and usually the best solution to this is to delete any task managers installed, which I cannot because the task manager is embedded into Home++, so I'm thinking the only way to get rid of the task manager is to delete the whole Home++, correct? I'm using ADW launcher at the moment.
