Need help from Motorola Droid owners to port 3G Watchdog application

 Hi all,

I'm the developer of 3G Watchdog, an application that monitors 3G
traffic. I need help from Motorola Droid owners to port it to that

The app gets the network statistics data by reading pseudo-files /sys/
class/net/xxxx/statistics/rx_bytes and tx_bytes. "xxx" is the network
interface name, which depends on the platform (or rather, the maker),
e.g. for HTC phones it is "rmnet0", "pdp0" for Samsung...

I'm looking for the name used by the Droid. If someone with a Droid
could look (using adb) at /sys/class/net/xxxx/statistics/rx_bytes and
tell me what the xxxx is, it would make 3G Watchdog accessible to
Motorola users.

BTW, this remark is valid for any other future phone (Ericson,
etc...). New Android phones will appear on the market, and I need
owner's contribution to port 3GW on them.

Thanks in advance. You can also mail me at

1. Destroy Android Thread


I did quite a simple app using android thread to implement progress
dialog. The app work this way :
When we click on button, it will start separate thread and analyze
something on the thread while keep updating the progress dialog. It
was running fine till the thread finished.

But after finished, when I click on the button again, it should
analyze again, but what happen was it show progress dialog already at
100% and stuck there, instead of reanalyze and start progress dialog
at 0%.

I am wondering that this is caused by prev thread that still on
memory. How we destroy that thread? I did assign null to the thread
before start new one. Some thing like this :

public onclick(){
analyzeThread = null;

Hope anybody could advice.


2. Set Default Chooser when Selecting Image?


In my application the user selects an image. When the
ACTION_GET_CONTENT intent is launched it displays the dialog to select
one of the available image viewers installed on the device. However I
need the built in Gallery app to be chosen because upon selecting an
image it launches the screen to crop the image (same thing that comes
up when choosing the home screen wallpaper) which only the Gallery
chooser offers.

Is it possible to skip this chooser dialog and launch the Gallery
automatically? Or at least remove the other options from the list so
only Gallery displays?

Thank you!
