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.

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?

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?

Htc Desire - Reboot Cycle After Rom Manager Backup

I was about to go for a2sd+.

Performed a backup using ti. Went fine.

Then chose to backup rom (clockwork) using rom manager.

It booted in to a screen that showed details of stuff that were being backed up.

Reached generating checksum/md5. And that's it.

It has been rebooting. Ad infinitum! Vibrates, htc screen, blank, vibrates, htc screen, blank. . .

I tried rebooting via hboot and chose recover. No use.

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?

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.

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?

Htc Incredible - Rom Manager Backup

After rooting my incredible last night using unrevoked, i downloaded rom manager to be able to flash rom's, mod's, etc. I flashed the clockwork mod recovery option using rom manager.

I wanted to able to backup my current rom using rom manager. I clicked on the option within the application, named my backup, and the phone appeared to reboot. However, it got stuck on the black screen with the white lines on each side.

I thought that using rom manager and enabling clockwork mod would prevent this from happening?

I had to pull the battery, boot in hboot, and reboot the phone in order to get it to operate again. What did i do wrong?

Htc Evo 4g - Titanium To Recognize Backup?

I just updated to froyo, but i made several titanium backups prior. When i created a back up in the past, i would copy and paste the titaniumbackup folder from the sdcard to my desktop.

After updating to froyo, i went to reload all my data, but titanium failed to recognize the backup after i cut and paste it from my desktop to my sdcard.

I'm not so much worried about the apps as i am about the sms and what not. How can i get titanium to recognize the backup?

Htc Incredible - App To Backup Everything On Phone

Is there an app that can backup everything on the phone?

Mail, txt, and contacts are taken care of with google sync.

But all the settings i have on the phone and all the settings i have in each app aren't backed up. My homescreens arent backed up. I also have to re-install all my apps which may not be a huge deal with app brain.

It would be nice to have something i can use that will just backup everything and restore everything. That way if my phone ever dies and i get another incredible, i'll beable to have everything setup without spending hours going through all the settings trying to remember.

Htc Incredible - Backup User Defined Dictionary

Is there a way to backup the user defined dictionary when switching between roms? I searched around a bit but couldn't find a solution for htc phones. Would restoring htc_ime using titanium backup work? (Assuming you are restoring sense 2. 2 on top of 2. 2?)

Htc Incredible - Best Way To Create A Full Backup For Phones Running 2.2

I've looked through several other posts here before adding this question and no one posting seems to get to everything so i'd like to re-ask everyone the question:

How can i backup everything on my phone - and all the apps that are installed on my sd card? Does it require two steps or can one app (or nandroid) do both?

Here's what i've gathered so far:

1) nandroid works for full backup of everything except the apps installed to my sd card. I've read about some nandroid "ext" feature but i don't understand how that works and if it is still relevant for phones running 2. 2 can anyone explain?

2) there's my backup pro and titanium backup but i'm not clear if either of these apps will backup everything that a nandroid backup would do (and include the apps installed to the sd card). Does anyone know?
