Android is a mobile operating system developed by Google, based on the Linux kernel and designed primarily for touchscreen mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. Android's user interface is based on direct manipulation, using touch gestures that loosely correspond to real-world actions, such as swiping, tapping and pinching, to manipulate on-screen objects, along with a virtual keyboard for text input. In addition to touchscreen devices, variants of Android are also used on notebooks, game consoles, digital cameras, televisions, automobiles and other electronics. Applications are usually developed in Java programming language using the Android software development kit (SDK), but other development environments are also available, including Delphi, Ruby and Visual Studio (using C++).

Hi Experts,

I recently consolidated a number of contacts that were duplicated in my contacts list on my Android S9+ mobile phone.

Now I've noticed that a lot of the consolidated contacts have the wrong avatar of the persons face, in many cases, the avatar on the contact is of a totally different person than who the contact in my phone really is.

Can anyone explain the best way to fix this so that the pictures on the contacts are correct? Please include step by step instructions if possible as I'm relatively new to Android phones, being an Iphone user for many years.

Many thanks for any help.

Regards, Andrew

Question about MAM (Mobile app management) "without" enrollment on Android devices.  

Ive just turned on MAM App Policies - I have 2 seperate Policies for IOS and Android, and it covers all MS Mobile apps on the list, ie Outlook, Word, Excel, OneDrive, etc

IOS testing is running nicely. Prompts users to choose a pin etc. Works a dream.

Android users however show a message as follows:
"To use your work or school account with this app, you must install the Microsoft Intune Company Portal app. Tap "Go to store" to continue.  

When the user follows this advice, they install the app but do not need to sign-in to it.  Its an extra step we do not believe is necessary.

Is this normal on Android??
My understanding is MAM does not need the "Microsoft Intune Company Portal app" .

Can we remove this message?
Advice from others who have set this up appreciated.

A user email account seem to be hacked. Attached is a log captured in Exchange smtp log and our email filtering gateway log.

The client android device is SAMSUNG and its IP address is h.i.j.149.
The hacker seem to come a.b.c.d.138, login to the Exchange through the user's credential and send a ransome email to the user herself.

Can I send the email is sent from the user's Samsung device ? The time logged in gateway and Exchange is matched. However, the IP logged in filtering gateway and Exchange is difference. And I suppose if the Samsung device is hacked, the IP logged in filtering gateway should the Samsung device, which is h.i.j.149.

Actually, user has already changed the password before but it seems that the hacker is still able to pass through. I believe a device should be hacked and that's why I need to identify it.

Thx.

Hi Experts,

I have a Sony BRAVIA 55 Model KDL-55W800C TV, running Android TV.

Usually I can access terrestrial TV via the "Watch TV" screen.

But in the last few days the TV is in a state where clicking on the "Watch TV" screen immediately jumps to "Google Play Movies & TV: Latest Movie Trailers" screen which then launches a trailer.

I have rebooted Android by holding down the Power button on the remote - but that does not fix the problem.

Regards,
Leigh

Hello Community Members

I have a "101 Archos Access" with Android OS which I brought bout 1.50 Years ago

http://www.archos.com/gb/products/tablets/access/archos_access1013g/index.html

It is 3G and notice when ON it pulls about 90% (lol) of 1 GIG of RAM which is the Total/Maximum Value

No Apps open but say within last 3 hours about 50 apps used those resources 90%

Is there a solution in form of an "App RAM Tuner" that can be installed "FREE" preferably OR bought to reduce the RAM Output

As times find My Archos un-responsive AND non - fluid have approximately 86 apps installed at present

Help VALUED with My current enquiry

Referring to above unfinished EE thread,

Q1:
will anything break if I move Whatsapp photos/images from Phone to microSD & if needed,
later move the photos/images back to the phone?

Q2:
Would like to clarify what Tim Green mentioned below: I could not locate it.

"Just because it doesn't cache the email, it still save info about the mailbox that will be needed for connectivity.
The move process may be a bit different depending on the android device but you can do it like this for the most part:

1.Navigate to settings on your phone
2.Tap Apps.
3.Select an app you want to move to the microSD card.
4.Tap Storage.
5.Tap Change if it's there. If you don't see the Change option, the app cannot be moved.
6.Tap Move. "

After installing MobilePass (a 2FA/OTP app for use with Checkpoint
VPN), it has required my Android phone to enter a PIN : previously
I just need to swipe the screen.

The issue is: since MobilePass app is installed, all my various
Whatsapp groups don't give a sound/alert even if I set custom
notifications.  However, the new whatsapp messages will still
pop up (if I set a custom notification).

I would like the sound notifications for new messages at set
by custom notifications.

I had to add a PIN to allow me to look at admin apps, and now I can't go back to swipe or none.  They are grayed out, and they say: Disabled by administrator, encryption policy or credential storage.

I've cleared the device administrators and cleared credentials. I can't decrypt the phone, it just says phone encrpyted and if I press that nothing happens. Using Android 6 on Alcatel Pixi. I've also tried clear the device administrators and clear credentials, RESTART, clear credentials.

Is there a way I can get those swipe or none options back?  Thanks.

gameThread = new Thread(this);
gameThread.start();

#3 What the purpose of "join" under pause method of TDView ? Does it remove the current thread after all the codes under method "run" have been executed ?

I wish to update my Android SDK/NDK  tools on Embarcadero RAD Studio 10.2 from SDK API 34 (Android version7) to SDK API 28 (Android version 9).
several videos on U-tube show how to install Android tools into the IDE using Gettit but in my list of Gettit packages, Android development tools is missing ?

Is there a way to update the SDK/NDK using RAD Studio ( C++ builder) ?

I'm getting software conflict errors such as Gradle could not find the path to the JDK.
After much research and trial & error experiments I've gained more knowledge but still didn't get a straight solution to how that setup should be done correctly.

I've tried several software/settings combinations, hacks and answers I found on Stack Exchange and such sites. But then other issues pop up (and a Gradle scan shows more of them) and what is needed is the correct explanation of how that should be done to build a robust environment the way it was meant to be by the developers.

Android Developer site, the official site from which to download Android Studio, doen't state there's a need for additional JDK/JRE installation, and I also found within Studio a differed version than the latest and no JDK (which is the one that, as I understand, Studio actually needs).
C:\Program Files\Android\Android Studio\jre

I'm using the latest versions on a Windows 8.1 on a Lenovo Y50-70 (64 bit, 16GB RAM):
Android Studio 3.1.2
Gradle 4.4 through Gradle plugin 3.1.2
JDK 10.0.2 (Oracle states it includes the JRE).

I've already installed and uninstalled a couple of times and wouldn't like to further mess up anything (OS registry etc.), what's needed is an experienced expert on-point advise.

Thanks in advance.
