 I like to check my service status, e.g. live or be killed.
so, I hope there is a command like "ps -ef " of linux.

How to list the background service

by krox » Sun, 25 Apr 2010 04:25:58 GMT


Not sure if this is what you are looking for but you can get a list of
all running services by using:

ActivityManager am =
List<ActivityManager.RunningServiceInfo> runningServices =

then just loop through that list to see if your service is running i.e

count = runningServices.size();
Component cnMyService = new ComponentName(this, myService.class);
(for int i=0; i < count ; i++) {
   if( runningServices.get(i).service.equals(cnMyService) )  {
      // Your service is running, do something

Hope this helps!

1. Brightness Android 2.2 vs Android 2.1

I've just realised Android 2.2 has less brightness (max level) than
Android 2.1.
It's looks like less AMOLED :(

In Setting > Display > Brightness is on top.

Any reason? save battery?
