Using Hardware Devices

Using Hardware Devices
When building a mobile application, it's important that you always test your application on a real device before releasing it to users. This page describes how to set up your development environment and Android-powered device for testing and debugging on the device. You can use any Android-powered device as an environment for running, debugging, and testing your applications. If you want a SIM-unlocked phone, then you might consider a Nexus phone. Note: When developing on a device, keep in mind that you should still use the Android emulator to test your application on configurations that are not equivalent to those of your real device. Setting up a Device for Development With an Android-powered device, you can develop and debug your Android applications just as you would on the emulator. Note: When you connect a device running Android 4.2.2 or higher to your computer, the system shows a dialog asking whether to accept an RSA key that allows debugging through this computer.

In fact, SMS messaging is one great killer application for the mobile phone and it has created a steady revenue stream for mobile operators. Understanding how to use SMS messaging in your application can provide you with many ideas to create the next killer application. In this article, we take a look at how you can programmatically send and receive SMS messages in your Android applications. The good news for Android developers is that you don't need a real device to test out SMS messaging - the free Android emulator provides the capability to do so. Sending SMS Messages To get started, first launch Eclipse and create a new Android project. Figure 1 Creating a new Android project using Eclipse Android uses a permission-based policy where all the permissions needed by an application need to be specified in the AndroidManifest.xml file.

The files are processed in order of their name so 51-xxx is mid-way through, 99-xx is at the tail end of the processing order. Also, after posting the wrong info to you earlier, I deleted the entry I posted. So, I put both lines in one file today and all is well again. I.e: SUBSYSTEM=="usb", SYSFS{idVendor}=="0bb4", MODE="0666" SUBSYSTEM=="usb", SYSFS{idVendor}=="18d1", MODE="0666" and I changed my filename to 99-android.rules then ran: sudo restart udev and now I can access the phone as a non root user again, either from adb or fastboot-linux. -Rotohammer T879 Note on T-Mobile Do not quote my entire first post in a reply!

In order to install third party applications to your Android phone, you need to install APK, or Android Package, files. Installing Applications Through the Android Market The Android Market is essentially Android’s answer to Apple’s iPhone App Store. Copy the APK file to your Android’s memory card and insert the card into your phone.
