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.

Htc Incredible - Mounting Sdcard And Internal Storage In Win7

When i plug in the htc incredible, explorer shows two new empty removable drives. Neither the internal storage or the sdcard is being mounted. All the hardware is functioning correctly and both devices recognize they have been connected. The devices mounted correctly before i rooted my phone and installed the latest virtuous rom.

I'm able to mount my sdcard successfully when i reboot in recovery mode via clockworkmod. I'm also able to mount the *only* the sdcard via a paid widget app from the market.

On the phone side, the phone is charging but won't unmount the sdcard. I never get the option to choose my connection type (i.e. - Charge only or mount as disk drive).

I've tried both with and without usb debugging. The phone tells me "usb debugging connected" when i connect the usb. I've also tried uninstalling the drivers in device manager as well as installing pdanet drivers. Pdanet recognizes the phone has been connected.

Htc Incredible - Set Gmail Invites To Be Private By Default On Dinc

Is there a way to set gmail invites to be private by default? Google help says that if your calendar is set to private (mine is) then all invites will be private too. That is not the case though - when my husband receives an invite in outlook and he has to manually change it to private. So short of using my pc for all invites (where i can manually set them to private each time) is there a way to do this on the dinc?

Htc Incredible - Set A Default Group Like "my Contacts" (on Google)

I spent a nice amount of time on google sorting my contacts by groups so it's neat and being i dont have a landline i have numbers in there that i dont ever call but i need to kepp them. And i know smart dial searches everyone if they are in a group or not.

My question is: is there a way to set a default group like "my contacts" (on google) when you go into your contacts insteal of "all contacts" (on the incredible)?

On google all the people who are in my contacts just fall under "all" even google considers it a "group"

Or maybe just put all of them in a new group and set it to default to that group?

Htc Incredible - Possible Incredible Facebook Contact Solution

There are many topics on the subject but i couldn't find where this option was as many of us with an incredible know, the facebook integration is cool but annoying in that it throws every facebook friend with a listed phone number within your dialer screen and other key contact locations. So here's a possible solution if someone can help me. On my friend's motorola droid, his facebook app has an option that will only sync facebook contacts with known phone contacts. It's listed under menu>settings>other settings (the incredible shows only 'helpful hints' under this same menu item, although it's version number is higher). This is awesome in that it gets rid of the zillions of people you don't want showing up in your dialer.

So, can you replace the incredible's facebook app with the moto droid's? I have it downloaded but can't install it since i can't remove the stock facebook apps that came on the incredible. Is it possible to use the moto droid facebook app instead?I didn't have much time on his droid so if i'm mistaken on any point then so be it. Just hoping for options.

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.

Htc Desire - How Easy Is It To Get Back To Default

So i have decided to root. I was going to goldcard/ruu to debrand my orange uk desire but i am a tinkerer and would love to flash rooted roms etc. Before i start i have a few questions;

1. Radio firmware: this is the biggie for me - i know that doing any sort of rom change you are likely to run into issues with the radio, this seems especially true on orange ones. So without having to unlock (it may sound cheap, but i haven't been paid for 2 months ) is there a way to avoid potential simlocks? Ie can i keep the radio version that is currently only my phone (just updated to froyo).

2. I know you can't get ota updates with rooted roms, but i like to keep up to date. I assume the guys making the roms are coming out with new ones all the time so is it quite easy to flash a new rom and be on your way?

3. Titanium backup and nandroid - i have seen people saying to use these for backups when you root. As far as i can tell titanium backup is good for settings etc, and nandroid is good for getting all your apps back, right? They both seem to require root access, so that surely means i can't backup all my settings before i root?

4. How easy is it to get back to default?

5. Which rom? I have seen many singing the praises of defrost. Is this pretty close to stock rom?

6. Anything you suggest i do/install when i am rooted? Anything especially cool .

I have seen many guides about, this in particular looks pretty damn easy to follow. Though the latest comments seem to be people having trouble now that they are on froyo and not eclaire. Also i got my phone early april, so i assume the screen is amoled, it doesn't seem to suffer from backlight bleed and its black as black on black backgrounds.

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?
