 Hi, all,

I am a new Android apps developer, I suffer a problem that I don't
know how to solve. Can anyone give me some suggestion?
The problem is the apps will launch twice or more when I apply the
following steps:
1. launch the app A (1 time)
2. rotate the screen, (the app A will launch again, now the app A
launch twice)
3. press return button (my expected result is that the app A will keep
running, luckily, I can do that.)
4. launch the app A ( there will be one more app A running)

So, in this case, there are 3 app A launching at the same time.
But my expected result is just have one and only one app A launch.

Thank you!

 Hi, thank you for your help!
But I tried to add android:launchMode="singleTask" or
android:launchMode="singleInstance" in the <activity> before, but it
seems not work.
The app still running twice or more at the same time by rotate screen
or press return button, and launch the app.

 Hi, Dianne Hackborn,

Thank you!
In the main activity, I will start a service, so I am calling
startService() in onCreate().
Is that not necessary?

 I also face the same problem, what I did was in manifest, inside
activity, just included
android:launchMode="singleTop" and its working fine.

What "singleTop" will do is,

The "standard" and "singleTop" modes differ from each other in just
one respect: Every time there's new intent for a "standard" activity,
a new instance of the class is created to respond to that intent. Each
instance handles a single intent. Similarly, a new instance of a
"singleTop" activity may also be created to handle a new intent.
However, if the target task already has an existing instance of the
activity at the top of its stack, that instance will receive the new
intent (in an onNewIntent()  call); a new instance is not created.

 The purpose of this app is to run the service forever until shutdown
the phone, and after the user leaves the app and return later, the
service will not launch again, means only have one of this service
running.
Now, the problem is it can't only have one of this service running.
Do I need adding something in AndroidManifest.xml file, the class that
extends Activity class or the class that extends Service class?

1. AudioHardwareRecordLoop - How to run on G1 phone

Hi

  Is there a way to run the AudioHardwareRecordLoop application on the
google G1 phone? The application was available as a part of the
android source.

  I was able to run the application on the emulator. But the
executable's execute permission is being removed when i store the
executable on phone. I used adb push to store the exe on the phone. Is
there any other way to push the executable onto the phone so that I
can run in from there?

Thanks and Regards

2. How to disable the security/permission check?

May I know if this is a way to disable the security/permission check?
This is a enterprise project so we have the full control of all the
phones. We don't need the market to distribute the software.

I need to share the user id of "phone" by doing this:

android:sharedUserId="phone"

But on the G1 phone, it doesn't work since I don't have the same
private key to sign my package.

So is there a solution for enterprise use cases?

For Windows Mobile, Microsoft has a tool called Security Manager which
can disable the security check of your own phone. I hope Google can
provide something too for the enterprise market.

And I hope Google or T-Mobile can give root access too, if they
consider the enterprise market.
