Save And Retrieve Numeric Values From Sqlite3

How to properly save a numeric values into sqlite3. I've used real type for storing numeric value. For example: when i store 233333. 00 is fine. But when i store 23333333. 00 it becomes 23333300. 00. Why is it saved as 2. 3333333e7 and retrieved as 2. 33333e+07. Is there a way to overcome this?

Possible Values That Can Be Passed To Soundpool Constructor For Srcquality Parameter

Can anyone fill me in as to the possible values that can be passed to the soundpool constructor for the srcquality parameter?

I see that it is an int, but no description is given in the documentation about what values are acceptable and what they even mean. I've seen examples that use 100 for this value and other examples that use 0.

Prevent Rooted Phones To Access Sqlite Db And Preferences

I have seen a few discussions on this, but i just wanted to see if there has been anything new. Currently, a rooted phone can access the /data/data/ com. Here/ path. Insides are all the wonderful areas like databases, files, and preferences. In fact, i was actually horrified to see that i could browse all the apps data on my development phone.

Is there a way to protect someone from accessing these (ie, password protect the database from shell access)? My issue is specifically in the database. While there isn't anything regarding passwords stored inside, there is some intellectual property in terms of the actual data and schema that could make it easier for people to copy what my application does.

My solution right now is to clear the particular tables i don't want people seeing in the database in ondestroy (when the user exits), or more accurately in onpause() with isfinishing(). Every time the application is launched the database is repopulated, so i am not worried about losing any data. I do realize that this isn't foolproof, but it seems to be better then nothing.

Droid Losing Values / Where To Put Url So It Isn't Lost

Shorter version of the problem now that i've had a droid user run some tests for me.

My app is mainly a webview with thing's like image uploading that require more than that.

In the webview's onpagestarted i call a method to show the image picker if the user is at a specific url. In the onactivityresult i get the filename that they want to upload and pass that along with the url they are at (it contains important querystrings) to another method in a new thread.

For some reason for droid users the url is null or an empty string. I've tried settings a global variable of the url before showing the image picker, but in the onactivityresult that value is an empty string. I've tried doing a webview. Geturl(), but again, no value.

This is working fine for everyone except droid users.

Any ideas why this is happening or where i can put the url so it isn't lost?

Delete All My Contacts Without Resetting Whole Phone

I want to erase all the contacts on my phone so i can resync from gmail. My new phone is the htc incredible which i got last week, and the old phone was a blackberry pearl which also sync'd contacts to gmail. Problem is i started doing all the linking on the phone, then i realized gmail had the ability to merge contacts. Now i have a mess and i want to delete all my contacts and resync with gmail. I even backed them up onto the sd card in case of an issue.

Anyone know how i can erase all my contacts without resetting the whole phone?

Motorola Milestone - Would Factory Resetting Lock It Again

Got a unlocked telus motorola milestone off ebay about 2 weeks ago. Been working on at&t and i loved it.

This morning. No data. It was just not working. Put the sim in another device, same drill. Got on chat with a at&t employee. No go.

Went to the local store, new sim, still no. Employees sim card. No. Finally we played with the apn settings and some mobile web sites kinda work using proxy settings, but not full ones. Basically. I'm screaming inside.

While troubleshooting this morning, i factory-reset my milestone. Would factory resetting "lock" it again? Or once you carrier unlock, is it unlocked for good?

Resetting The Listview After Adapter's Data Was Changed

I have a list view that can display items based on internal state (it has items, and 'viewed' items). I need to be able to toggle between by two states, i do that using a simple button that change the adapter's state and the adapter then called notifydatasetchanged(). My data does gets updated, however i was facing two problems:

1. If in the previous mode the list was partially scrolled, it stayed in that state after i changed the data set (if i was half the way down i'll be half way down in the new data set as well, this is not the behavior i want, but i cols not find a way to scroll the list manually to position 0. Any ideas ?

2. In my list view each item has an image that is fetched from the net, as so it's being brought using my networking manager and i send the image request only if i'm in this screen for the first time or if scroll state is idlle, i didn't want to start loading images from the getview method since if i fling the screen it may load a lot of unnecessary images. However when calling notifydatasetchanged() the scroll listener methods are not called. I solved this one by using notifydatasetinvalidated even though my data is not empty, is there a better way to solve this issue ?

Htc Incredible - Resetting Camera Photo File Names

I love my htc droid incredible. I have no problems using the camera or moving images where i want them (facebook, flickr, or my pc). As i take photos, they are saved as a file name like "imag0029.jpg". They sequentially increment. I am fine with that.

What i would like, is, a way to re-set the embedded number to zero; either when the camera is empty (after a download), or manually.

Motorola Droid - Lots Of Resetting After Recent Updates And During Phone Call / What To Do

I noticed that facebook notifications don't work at all anymore. But since the most recent update my phone has rebooted at least 2 times a day. Most recently during a phone call? I got this phone as a refurb from verizon after the ota bricked my last one. Does this warrant a replacement or is it a software bug i have to track down? I honestly don't want to go through the exchange process again.

Htc Desire - Are There Any Better Backup And Restore Apps

I want to try defrost 2. 9. That's the latest right?It states that a wipe is required. I'm coming from a modaco rom. Im co cerned about a wipe though because i use titanium and don't find it reliable. Last time i installed defrost 2. 6 and restored, i didn't even restore my google settings. It was like i had to set up from scratch.

Is a wipe really essential? Are there any better backup and restore apps? Perhaps my backup pro?

Motorola Droid X - Use Univerisalandroot - How To Get Phone To Restore A Backup

This might seem dumb and noobish ( i am new to android, had dx for a month from a bb) but what are the best steps after i use univerisalandroot. I keep seeing it suggested to back up, but how is the best way to do that? Do you save a backup on the sd or on a pc? How do you get the phone to restore a backup? I think these are the questions that are holding me back from rooting but i might have others.

How Do I Restore Stock Apps On Samsung Galaxy Ace?

I've got gt-s5830 phone running 2. 3. 3. So far the phone is working perfect. I was messing around the other and deleted some stock apps by error. I used ti backup for this. I would like to restore a couple of them back, so i used the restore function in ti backup, but for some reason it did not work. Did not give any errors, just rebooted without the app being restored.

Anyway, i believe i have 2 options.

1). Flash 2. 3. 3 which i found - droidangel.

2) upgrade to 2. 3. 5 which is also located at the above page. But i am not sure what 2. 3. 5 would be best to use. I'm in the uk, using a vf contract with a unlocked phone.

I have no issues on flashing, but i don't want to flash using the wrong rom and messing it all up.
