Access Private Resource In Donut

I saw in old posts that the oem could add internal resource in framework , so they can be able to use them with the special syntax. For example


Now it seems that the latter interface is not provided anymore in android 1. 5 as well as the donut version i'm compiling. But the former still can be used. Why? Is it gonna be supported in further versions?

As oem, we need to create applications with customizable resources, so the most convenient way as far as i know is to modify the private resource, as they can be used from xml scripts, and they wont cause trouble to third party application that should not use them. But i don't know how to check the res ids in the private resources changed or not. They have no .xml file to set their index orders like the public ones.

I saw in a post : ". Private resource ids are assigned dynamically, they basically change in each build of the system". So if i build a new framework-res.apk and i change some resource data, i don't know what is gonna happen to my previous applications? Does this mean all of the ids changed even if you don't add any new resource? Is there a way to check the compatibility of private resources between 2 builds, or to force them to be compatible  - like in public resources we can set the order in the public.xml to keep ids order the same.

Adc2 Submissions And1.6 - Donut

About adc2 submissions and android 1. 6 (donut)

We rigorously tested our submission (cubeworks, with android 1. 5 but it crashes on startup with 1. 6

If the rumors are true and donut does become available next week won't that make judging unfair since some judges may be using 1. 6

The 1. 6 sdk was made available on sept 15 and the adc2 submissions closed aug 30th.

Our trouble is being caused by the android. Opengl. Glu. Gluunproject() method but i am sure there are other minor incompatibilities between the two versions.

Upgrading 2009 I/o Device From Donut - 1.6 To Eclair - 2.0/2.1

I have periodically attempted to search for information about this, but never really got to the bottom of it. Are there any instructions online for upgrading the 2009 i/o device from donut (1. 6) to eclair (2. 0/2. 1)? I successfully updated from cupcake (1. 5) to donut (1. 6), but every time i have tried to find information on the next upgrade i have not seen anything online. What am i missing?

For i/o 2010 you need eclair to view the conference application from any android device.

Samsung I7500 - Upgraded To Donut 1.6 And Galaxy Is Slower Than Before

I had mustymod 2. 1 before but my phone was also slow and i didn't have camera or gps, so i decided to get drakaz galaxo new rom but then my phone freezes a lot so i had to put off the battery and then power on my phone.

After that i decided to put only 1. 6 without any customization but my phone is so slow i can't enjoy it.

Now the question is what should i do? I am stuck with this worst cellphone in the world. Should i go back to 1. 5? Does someone else experience such a bad performance. Is there a solution to make it work with galaxo but make the phone work (i didn't overclock at all).

Video Playback Freezes On 1.6 Donut With Opencore2 / Solve This

It looks like there is something wrong with the player (opencore), at times, video playback will get stuck on one frame, and will stay there for a long time.

If you look at the log, you can see that player started playing at 17:59:48, at that time it has already buffered 6 seconds of video. Then at 17:59:53 the video and sound got stuck, while buffering kept going on in the background

After 25 seconds (18:00:19) it resumed playing and buffer was already at 36 seconds, and all this time the api report that it is playing, meaning in the code, i don't know that video is stuck.

Any thoughts or suggestions? This started to happen in donut (1. 6) with the introduction of opencore2. I have never seen this problem in with previous version of opencore (android versions <= 1. 5)

Legend: the integers next to "current" and "buffer" are in seconds of video. While "playerdriver buffering" are in percentages.code.

Htc Desire - How To Backup A Private Application

I'm using astro to back up some not very often used apps, and games. So i can remove them for now.

I have the paid for version of winds of steel, and exzeus that i want to remove. They're listed as private, with no check box for backup.

How do i get around this, or is it a case of tough.

I can see why they wont allow backups, otherwise a paid for game could be ported to someone elses 'droid phone for free. As long as they have astro.

List Of Private / Hidden / System Apis

In this post I've read about all that stuff about private apis which are annotated with @hide. The presence of hidden apis is not as well-known as the "all apps are equal"-mantra, but i think there should be more information on it. As long as i belivied in the mantra, i had dialogues like that: boss: can you do xyz on android? Me: yes, of course, there are apps on my phone which do it, so we can do it, too! Boss: cool, go ahead and code that stuff. Customers will love it!Two days later. Me: hey boss, i just found out i need some private api for that. Forget all your business plans.

I totally agree with those two reasons for private apis: 1. Some features would be too dangerous from a security perspective 2. Some apis were not ready to ship when 1. 0 came out, so they should be published later

The post i mentioned above is about two private apis:
* Installing apps without any intervention by the user
* Calling emergency phone numbers like 911 i'm sure there are more private apis, i think those are good examples:
* Everything related to bluetooth
* Reading contancts from a sim card / writing them there but im afraid there may be many more which i'm not aware of.could we create an exhaustive list of them? I think no such list exists yet. For each api/feature it would be nice to know: 
* Why is it private?
* Will it ever be public?
* If yes, are there any schedules when this might come true, in terms of release numbers or in terms of a date?

Can I Add A Custom Qualifier To Resource Directory

Just like the title says, i have a question about resource directory. To use different resources based on current configuration, android supports a list of qualifier that can be added to directory name, so the system automatically finds the right one for the current configuration.

However, it seems like the android system only supports few qualifiers, so i'm wondering if i can just add some more qualifier and make the android system recognize them.

Project Won't Build When Editing A Resource File

I have an android 1. 5 project in eclipse and whenever i merely have an xml resource file open the build dies with an error. e.g. If i have the reslayoutmain.xml open as the active document it won't build and throws the following error:

Error in an xml file: aborting build.
Reslayoutmain.xml:0: error resource entry main is already defined.

I then have to delete main. Out.xml and switch to any . Java file in the project to get it to build.

Do i have something configured incorrectly or is this just an eclipse or adt bug? It drove me nuts for an hour before i figure out what the cause was.

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 Desire - Get Private Calendar Back / Set - Turn Off Alarm Per Appointment

Since my desire updated to froyo, i have a few issues with the calendar.
Before froyo, there were 3 types of calendar: calendar (didn't and still don't use it)
2. Htc sync (use it for the data i want to sync with my work calendar)
3. My calendar (calendar on the phone itself, used it for my private appointments and meetings i didn't want to get synced with my work calendar).

Now that last one has disappeared and i really miss it! Now my private meetings also show up in my work calendar.
Is there a way to get this private calendar back? Or is it possible to sync only in one way? I know it was possible with my nokia, so my work data appeared on my phone, but my private data didn't get pushed to my work calendar.

Another issue i encounter with the calendar app (not sure if it is typical froyo) is that every appointment has an alarm. Again on the nokia there was only an alarm if you explicitly entered one.
Is there a way to set or turn off the alarm per appointment?

I am new to the forum. I recently bought one of the chinese android devices available on ebay similar to the ipad. It came configured with an app store with most of the apps in chinese. The problem is there is no access to the android market. Does anyone know of an app that i can use to access that? Also, is there any way to download apps that are shown on this website other than thru the android market? The device has a browser and connects to the internet thru my local wireless network.

Get Root Access In Android Emulator

How to root/get root access in android emulator? I have all android sdk versions(from 1. 5 to 2. 3. 3), and i tried many methods for getting root in android emulator. I don't use any android device and test everything on emulator(avd).

I need to get root access in any one of the android emulator to use the 'iptables' and 'busybox' functionality. And to use iptables i must have root access. Atleast 'su' command should execute in the terminal emulator.

I also installed 'z4root' application, but it takes very long time and doesn't finish rooting, and gets stuck. Some say that if we downgrade the system to below rc30, this way we can get root access. If this is true, then how to do this, i use both linux and windows os.

Below are my android versions and emulator specification::

Access List Of Fans On Facebook

I have a motorola droid. I also have a fan page on facebook. Is there a way to view the list of people who are fans. When i click on "view all fans" a box appears with list of fans. The problem is that it only show about 6 fans and there is z no way to see the rest. On a laptop this would occur the same way but there would be a side scroll bar to move the list up & down. I have noticed this same issue (no scroll bar) on othe sites. Is there anyway to view who joins as a fan on facebook or access other sites that need side scroll bar? Thanks for any input

Just one other facebook question. Is there any way to have notificaton sent when someone joins as a fan or post to the fan page?
