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.

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.

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:


Which results into something like:


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.

Usb Device Not Recognized Using Samsung Galaxy S2

Ok so my samsung galaxy s2 was working fine, i had if for about 4 months and i had connectivity with my laptop running windows vista home premium. However last week i updated the software and was trying to update the firmware via kies when i got the error - usb device not recognized. One of the usb devices attached to this computer has malfunctioned, and windows does not recognize it.

On the phone the mtp initialization appears then shortly says connected afterwards. However windows cant see the phone. I believe i have tried everything to resolve this, i have;

A) done a factory reset on the phone.
B) re-installed the latest version of kies and drivers ensuring everything , including drivers and associated files were wiped from my computer
C)tried different usb cables including the oem cable and various aftermarket ones.
D)tried all the usb ports on my laptop.
E)tried other laptops and desktops.
F) tried de-bugging mode.

I'm sure there is a g) and an h) but can't think at the min. So does anyone have and ideas? I'm starting to think the phone is faulty and send it back. Many thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Htc Evo 4g - Wav Format Not Recognized After Froyo (2.2) Update / Get It To Work

So i have read online that with the 2. 2 update, the music file format ". Wav" is no longer recognized. In 2. 1 this worked just fine since i can confirm. People who get email notifications with wav file attachments or open small wave on the web are unable to listen to them if they have froyo 2. 2 ota update. Does anyone know if this is a bug that is being addressed by android team?

I don't want to download 3rd party apps just to listen to wave files. I want to use the exiting music app on the evo.

Htc Droid Eris - Sound Comes Out Of Internal Speaker Distorted / Solution For This

This evening i noticed my notifications being really distorted so i thought i'd change my ringtone to fix the problem. I guess that helped a little, but now i've noticed that every sound that comes out of the internal speaker is distorted. Videos, ringtones, even the tone when you're dialing a number. What happened? I haven't dropped my phone or anything like that.

Use Drawarc Command For Canvas Class

I'm trying to create a customized clock that will highlight certain intervals that i choose (like a pie slice). I'm trying to use the drawarc command for the canvas class. However, it will only draw arcs of 360 degrees or more (full circles). I'd like to draw arcs of about 15 to 20 degrees or so. I have no idea what is wrong with my code. Can anyone figure out the problem? I know it's not being drawn behind my background because it will draw the full circle on top (you can just remove the background line of code).

My code for my activity and view class is below:

Force A Http Head Command To Terminate (for Httpclient And Curl)

If you run this command code.

You will notice immediately that the curl command hangs. (I am running this in cygwin/vista)

If you run it against twitter or facebook, curl terminates immediately.
I suspect it's because twitter & facebook returns connection: close.

In my android 1. 5 cupcake app, i am running the same command using the httpclient framework. And i notice that the connection hangs but terminates after the timeout (thank god for http 4. 0 ! ).

Is there an option to set in httpclient to terminate once i've received the relevant head
http headers ?

How To Solve 'g1 / Htc' Magic Not Recognized By Adb Under Windows

If you don't use windows or adb has no problem with your device, please skip this. If your g1 or htc magic is not properly recognized by adb under windows, please read this. The bottom line: please make sure to enable home > settings > applications > development > usb debugging on your g1 or htc magic *before* you plug it in windows the very first time. If you read this after the fact, googling why "adb doesn't recognize my device under windows", here are the steps to fix it: this concerns both the g1 and htc magic and all flavors of windows.

1- remove existing drivers: 1a- plug your phone 1b- open the device manager 1c- remove any driver for [adb interface > htc composite adb interface] and [disk drives > htc android phone usb device] if you see them 1d- unplug phone

2- edit the registry 2a- disclaimer: be careful what you do in regedit. If you're not sure, don't use it :-) 2b- open the registry editor (start > search/run > regedit) 2c- you _may_ need to be administrator to do that 2d- search for "vid_0bb4&pid_0c02" in keys or values. It makes take a while. If you find in a value, delete the whole key folder. 2e- some keys might be "locked": right-click them and add "everyone: full control" to the permissions. Then delete the key folder. 2f- repeat the search till no more instances are found. 2g- close regedit.

3- before your plug in your phone: 3a- make sure to enable home > settings > applications > development > usb debugging on your g1 or htc magic 3b- plug the phone in. Windows should now ask you for a driver 3c- do not selected to search the windows update. Instead select "i will choose a driver" or the equivalent. 3d- make sure to give the *full* path to the x86 or x86_64 driver, e.g:      sdk/usb_driver/x86/ or  sdk/usb_driver/x86_64/ if you just select "sdk/usb_driver", windows might take the wrong architecture and complain the driver can't be installed.

Send File Via Ftp Within Droid / Intent Only Used For "internal" App

I was not able to find anything regarding this topic on google so.

I apologize in advance for this newby question :-) but if i install and ftp, would it be possible to programmatically trigger it using an intent ? Or are intent only used for "internal" application?

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.

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.
