I installed android studio 2.3 and trying to run adb on an emulator

I did adb -e shell

Its gives me prompt:

generic_x86:/

I do an ls and I show a bunch of directory  permission denied
 
I entered cd /data/data and it worked

after I entered

mkdir com.example.dbexample

and I get permission denied.

What is wrong?  I am expecting and android emulator you have root permission

Emulator is version 7.1.1

Hi there,
Please can you help me? On my Android Samsung Galxy S6 are stored files under /userdata/data/com.microsoft.office.word/app-EmailAttachments.. So, I know what this files are but I don`t know how the names of the files are generated.
i.e. /app_EmailAttachmentseaa8ac15-baaf-4675-9f6a-9698e54f0108. This file name belongs to a pdf i have sent. What does the string "eaa8ac15-baaf-4675-9f6a-9698e54f0108" in the file name mean?
Thx

I thought I had found an optimal solution in Possio Greta:

https://gizmodo.com/235790/possio-greta-combination-printer-scanner-fax-and-cellphone

But I talked to the head office in Sweden, and it turned out that it doesn't work everywhere in the world. I can't remember the details now, but I had a lengthy discussion about it, and it's of quite limited use for me when I travel between different parts of the world and different countries.

Otherwise, is there any alternative to smartphone and internet, such as a small portable fax machine or any other device or other type of communication (analogue instead of digital etc.)? Telex, satellite, short-wave radio, SIP for fax etc.?

I found one at a store, Samsung Galaxy Note 8, that seemed impressive. Could write notes on it just like with an ordinary pen on paper. Is this the best there is on the market, or is there any other note-taking smartphone that is much better?

Except the function to take notes just like with an ordinary pen on paper but instead on the smartphone with an electronic pen, I also want to be able to easily and quickly find any small note. So there should be possible to save each note and label each note so I can find it later using any of several search criteria.

Also useful would be to easily be able to cut parts of a note and paste somewhere else to other notes (move parts of notes to other notes).

Or would a tablet like Samsung Tab J be even better than a note-taking smartphone?

I have an OnePlus 5 running the latest Android 7, stock (not rooted). How on earth do I set Sunday as the first day of the week such that Google Calendar, Inbox and Keep all use Sunday as the start of the week.

Thanks in advance.

I am currently setting up a training room where I want everything to be automated. I have door style windows on a slanted roof that currently needs to be opened manually. The problem is that the windows are very high, and it is not practical to try and open them manually.

They are side hung escape windows with wooden frames and dimensions 660x1180mm.

I want to convert the windows so they can open automatically, preferably using a remote or voice commands using my SmartThings hub or Amazon Alexa. Would this be possible?

Would you be able to guide me to the type of window opener/actuator that would best suit my window and what else I would need to get to be able to use my SmartThings hub or IFTTT event triggering.

Any solutions would be much appreciated.

Regards,
Robbie

I have a client whose company has a specific office 365 account for contacts only. The entire company adds contacts to it and it has ~7850 contacts in it. No one has problems syncing to this account on their phone for contacts except for one user. He complains that his sync is completed but his phone shows only 7650 contacts, missing about 200. His Outlook on his PC is showing 7850.

I have had him remove the account and re-add it. I removed the account from the mobile devices list in 365 admin and had him restart his phone to re-sync completely, it leads to the same number when done.  I also checked and he has full access to every contact and group.

When done syncing he says he does have the latest contacts added as well but is concerned about the number shown. He is using a Samsung Galaxy S7, while others using the same phone do not have the issue.

I changed the account on his phone to sync only contacts from this specific account, hoping that it would fully sync, but that did not fix it either.

At this point I can't tell if it is an issue regarding the number his phone is showing or if his account is actually not syncing all contacts.

If you keep the mobile phones safe in your pocket or purse, it's still at risk for picking up a virus or leaking data to thieves. Hackers don't need physical access to your phone to steal your personal information or infect the device with malware. They infiltrate your phone with innocent-looking apps or link to it via unsecured Wi-Fi networks. A Technology blogging site (http://www.mobileblog24.com/ ) talking about this problem. Before some days I take my new phone from online shopping site (https://www.buymobile.com.bd/). Some informative site (http://www.bbc.co.uk/ ) also provide disadvantage of hacking. Now I want to know how can protect my mobile phone from being hacked?

Hi,

I would like to know how I can send messages using an Amazon Echo to a mobile phone as well as being able to call any phone.

In relation to this:

- The phone being called can be landline or mobile
- It would be a call from an Echo to phone and not Echo to Echo
- The Echo should be able to receive message and calls as well as send
- Would it be free to send messages and make calls in this way
- Also, would anything else be needed to make this work

Thanks,
Robbie
