How can I run Custom ROM's such as MIUI, color OS, Lineage OS on android emulator.

Developing Android Apps - Thu, 09/20/2018 - 07:25

I have come across a certain link i.e " " .

But as cryptic as this method may seem , i can still not run a few Rom's on the emulator , I know Lineage OS can be booted in to your pc , Can I do it with other Rom's , Has anybody ever did it before with MIUI specifically.

Battery replacement is horrible nowadays. The removable battery needs a comeback!

Android - Thu, 09/20/2018 - 07:21

Since you can't buy a proper smartphone with removable battery anymore (at least i couldn't find a single new flagship / or normal smartphone that has a removable battery, heck !) the process of getting a new batterie is horrible.

I use a galaxy s7 as my daily driver and the phone is getting to the 2 year mark. I had to send it in for warranty twice already for a new battery because the old ones always lost too much capacity making it hard to use as a daily driver - i think i am a normal smartphone user charging my phone 1x per day over night. In the time I had to fill warranty paperwork and send it to a samsung repair center my phone was gone for roughly 2 weeks every time. In that time i needed a second phone. I mean seriously what the f***.

I know it was repaired under warranty so it didn't cost me anything but i would prefer just buying a new batterie for a fair amount of money replacing it myself on a faster and more reliable base. After my warranty ends i will have to pay a lot more for a proper replacement.

I can understand arguments like the phones can get better features and are manufactured cheaper with built in batteries but in the end it's just bad for the consumer and i think that's not ok.

I want a comeback for the removeable battery. At least give people some phones that can do it.

What's your opinion? Any pro con or other information?

I thought about it for a time now and now i had enough of it so i decided to share my experience here on reddit :)

Thank you!

What's your post-GDPR crash management strategy?

Developing Android Apps - Thu, 09/20/2018 - 07:07

Hey everyone !

So we're a few months post-GDPR implementation here and I have to say, it sucks. I previously used crashlytics to find and fix bugs, but now that most users don't opt-in crashlytics isn't enough to help me debug my app. Especially for edge-case or hardware-related bugs. Something that is common enough will eventually make it to crashlytics, but a lot of crash appears in the developer console without appearing in crashlytics, leaving me a bit blind to fix them.

That leads me to ask:

  1. Is there a crash reporting tool that doesn't use PII at all so I won't need consent to use it? Or a way to completely anonymise crashlytics to use it without consent?
  2. Would it be a good idea to show a dialog to ask users to send the crash report when a crash happen? Any libraries to implement that easily?

I would love to know how all of you are handling things yourself.

Still money to be made in side projects?

Developing Android Apps - Thu, 09/20/2018 - 06:06

I remember a colleague telling me about how he made a Reddit android client years ago with some adverts and it regularly pulled in £400+ per month. Obviously I think the market is far more saturated these days but is it still possible to make money on the side with mobile apps that can be built by one developer?

Is there a point in making an app thats an improvement on what exists and charging £1 for it?

How common is unjustifiable Admob ban?

Developing Android Apps - Thu, 09/20/2018 - 05:06

I have seen several posts that claimed that their account was closed because some malicious competitors hired some Chinese people and clicked the adverts just to make them banned.

I have not used Admob myself, but since I know how detrimental it is to get banned from PlayStore, I guess getting banned from Admob may have the same emotional & economical consequences. As for PlayStore ban, there always are at least some faults on the developer, even if that was not intentional or malicious, like having a copyrighted image in the screenshot. But those Admob ban is completely unjustifiable, if what the developers are claiming is true.

So, how common is that? Are the developers really guiltless? And does Admob really never listen to your appeal and solve the issue for you (un-ban)?

Service vs AsyncTask for sending a video stream?

Developing Android Apps - Thu, 09/20/2018 - 05:00

I have been working on a streaming application for a DJI Drone but I am not sure how to implement the RTP packetization and transmission.

I understand that AsyncTask is used to run process that may take some time and to avoid freezing the UI Thread, however, the stream may be a long running process so should I instead use a foreground service?

Thanks for any input given.

Voice Controlled Pizza App? Google Assistant?

Developing Android Apps - Thu, 09/20/2018 - 02:10

So this is a weird one but I'm looking for a project that is useful and won't take forever to get a prototype going (#NormieJobAndFamilySoHaveOnlyEarlyMorningsToMyself) and I have a concept that should be simple but we'll see!

I work as a pizza wizard. One of the things that causes delays when making a pizza is the constant checking as to:

Topping order, is this set of toppings actually a specialty pizza in disguise? (extra topping amount), how much of each topping do I add? If I'm out of topping X, where do I find it?

It's a very specific set of problems. With a very simple set of answers.

I'd like to basically be able to say "Make a Pizza with Sausage, Mushrooms, and Olives" and have it tell me "Okay, start by adding X amount of Mushrooms." "Next" "add X olives" and so forth.

Ideally with the possibility to keep track of up to 3 different pizzas, cancel a pizza, multiple voice differentiation, and a "timer" mode where it tells you the next step after X seconds unless you say "Wait" or w.e... and I suppose a "Start over" or "repeat that" would be good, too. Oh! And possibly integrate physical Bluetooth buttons - at the moment I have 2 wireless earbuds (a pair) which both have a "pause/play" and "skip song" button. They register as the same device (right earbud just "tells" left earbud to pass its message along) but it could prove useful for sure.

Not asking anyone to program this for me (that's the fun part! XD) but uh.. aside from picking up an Alexa is there a reasonable way to do this? I've done nearly zero research as I'm cleaning the house and making dinner and voice typing at the same time but I'm hoping to start this tomorrow. Has anyone done something similar? Just looking for a sanity check before I waste too much time - not so much a "do my research for me" but a shouting "Anyone know a Bob!?" D:

Turning USB tethering on when USB connected

Tasker: Total Automation for Android - Thu, 09/20/2018 - 02:04

Hey everyone, new user of Tasker here. I love it so much and I'd just like some help configuring this particular task. My laptop's wireless adapter is broken, so I've been manually turning on USB tethering to connect to the internet through my phone. I've done some research and I've only found posts from a few years ago and/or solutions with apps that aren't Tasker. I've also tried these solutions and they haven't worked.

Does anyone know if it's possible to set a task to automatically turn USB tethering on when connected to my laptop? I know it'll only save me about three seconds, but it's so annoying to constantly turn back on every time. I'd like to automate it!

Phone details:

Samsung Galaxy Note 8

Android 8.0.0

Non rooted
