Please don't do that.

First, it's not possible:

Second, it's a bad idea to even try:

What is "it"?

Services are natural singletons -- there is exactly 0 or 1 copy of the
service running at any point. The goal is for there to be 0 copies of
the service running unless it is actively delivering user-perceived value.

1. Serial over Bluetooth

I'm learning Android quickly but I'm still very much a newbie.  Once
I'm up to speed, I have a project in mind that I'd like to try with my
new Droid.  I want to interface it with a robot.

I'm brand new to Android development, though I've been doing
electronics for some time now. One of the recent trends in hobby
robotics is adding wireless control, often using Bluetooth as a
wireless serial communication medium.

Does anyone out there know if I can use the Motorola Droid's onboard
Bluetooth capabilities (or any Android phone for that matter) to
communicate with a home-brew Bluetooth device?  That is, can I
manually roll my own serial protocol using the existing Bluetooth
framework?

I know it's a weird question but hey - I'm a weird guy.

Thanks for any and all ideas!

2. How to implement asking questions before uninstalling the apk

Hi,
  Usually when ever we install some apk from market and then try to
uninstall it we get set of questions like
1.Did not like the software.
2. Do not want to use...etc
 I want to know how we can do this. If there is some site where in I
should look please let me know. I tried looking for it but did not
know how to search.
Thanks
