Htc Incredible No Default External Storage

The htc incredible is now available for pre order at verizon. Engadget has already done a review. They mention that there is a storage issue with a lot of apps because it does not come with an external sd card by default. It does have a lot of separate internal storage, but apps cannot use it. Does anyone have more info about this from a developer's point of view. What path will environment. Getexternalstoragedirectory() return and what is the correct way to get the path of the internal storage?

Part Of My Bitmap Image Missing When Written To External Storage / Why Is So

I want to send an image of a view to external storage so that it can be printed. The view is a grid made up of a tablelayout, tablerows and textviews. I write the view to the sdcard, then copy it to my hd using the ddms file-explorer screen. But when i look at it in ms paint, the image is only partially there.

I have tested this two ways.

When i used the xml version, the result was a small black square " no detail, no grid, nothing.

Next i created a textview programmatically, with text using settext(aaa¯). The resulting bitmap had the correct color and size, but the text was missing.

Would someone please tell me how to get my view correctly written to external storage so that it looks like it does on the android screen? Code.

Pass Extra Data To Appwidget's Creation Activity For Use

I would like to host app widgets in my own application, and i have a few questions associated with it.

1)when creating an appwidgethost instance, there is a hostid that needs to be supplied, what happens if this collides with another application's hostid?

2)it seems the only way to obtain an appwidgetproviderinfo object for an appwidget is to throw the appwidget_picker intent. Is this true? Or is there another way i can directly request it from an application?The reason being, i only want a subset of the widgets, and i know what packages contain them, so i don't need the picker to pop up.

3) also, can i pass extra data to the appwidget's creation activity for use when figuring out what to display?

Dvm Instance Creation - Launch Installed Droid App At Runtime From Another

I trying to understand how a new process is being created based on androidmanifest.xml, also looking for the possibility of creating/ forking a new java process/new dvm instance at runtime.

I could find that using runtime.exec one can issue system commands or launch native applications, but this is not what i am looking for, i am looking for creating an equivalent java process just as the parent java process.

Can i launch an installed android application at runtime from another android application? Whats the way for doing this?

How To Use External Jars In Project

I have created an android project and added an external jar (hessian-4. 0. 1. Jar) to my project. I then add the jar to the buildpath and check it of in order and export.

Order and export is ignored it seams, and all classes from the external jar is missing in runtime.

Is there a trick to properly include the needed classes from an external jar when building an android application using the eclipse plug-in. I do not want to use ant of maven.

Google Maps External Library

A not so small part of the android devices are not including the google maps external library. My first question is: how can a vendor/manufacturer include it on his devices, is there a process of obtaining a license for the use of the library or there are some conditions to apply for such a license?

My second one: is there a nicer way to address this issue other than have 2 builds/apks, one that uses the library, with added in the manifest, and the other one, without the use of the library?

Reusing Code - Multiple External Namespaces

What's the proper way to share code and layouts between android projects?  (I work with eclipse)

Explanation and my problem:

I'm working in multiple projects that share the same base (an activity-less android project). This project have some graphical classes with its layouts in xml and require both to work properly. Normally i copy this code and change the r. Id definitions on the project to match the current 'sub-project' but, obviously, this is not the proper way of reusing code.

Now i have two eclipse projects, one of them has the 'base' code and the other is the current application. I defined a dependency but it seems that i can refer to the classes from java, but i can't in this other project's layouts. I tried declaring its namespace in xml files, but it doesn't work.

I can't believe the way is copy+paste and search+replace.

How To Retrieve Paths To Multiple Sd Cards - Internal & External

I ran into a seemingly simple issue to which i cannot find an answer. The application i am working on needs to read/write data from/to the sd card. All the resourcess are located in a folder rigth on the root of the sd card. To obtain the absolute path to my resources directory.

I wrote something like this:

Code:.

Which results into something like:

Code:.

This works just fine for most devices. However, there is the samsung galaxy s which has 2 sd cards, one internal, and one external. Using the code above, i get the path to the internal sd card. The path to the external card is "/sdcard/sd/" (where i belive "sd" is just the mount point).

Is there any api that i don't find which returns a list of paths to multiple sd cards (if available). Or is there any other way to scan both cards for the existence of my resources folder without hardcoding it myself. Note that changing the location of the resources dir is not an option.

Motorola Droid - Not Recognized As An Internal External Command

I just rooted my droid using this guide, installed busybox then made a custom recovery. I know how to use the change directory properly cause i did it enough times doing those things, so i'm pretty sure it's not that.

http://androidforums.com/all-things-root-droid/45764-guide-s-everything-root-related.html

After that my command prompt stopped working for me when i wanted to start doing stuff. It gives me that error; "not recognized as an internal external command, operable program or batch file"
I'm not sure why it's not working for me, not a tech savy guy really, just know how to follow tutorials.
I'm thinking it may be my path variable needs to be fixed some how, but i don't know much else about it, so i haven't touched it.

Nexus - Remove Google Talk Storage App

I have cyanogen 5. 0. 6 baked on modaco with a lot of things stripped out.

Having a task manager as well i can see what's running in the background, i've noticed that 'google talk storage' is running constantly and reloads once killed.

I do not have, nor want, google talk so i don't see why this app would continue to run even when killed. I would presume that gapps is reloading it but i cannot tell for sure.

Does anyone know what the apk name is for this so i can remove it from my device?
