 Hell everyone,

I am working on an applicaiton that requires to access VPN setting
information, howevery I am encountering a permisison denied issue whne
the application accesses VPN setting on /data/misc/vpn folder (Android
2.2 OS), can anyone help how to resolve this issue, did I miss any
users-permission setting in AndroidManifest.xml? /data/misc/vpn/profiles/
4599898380687054558.pobj (Permission denied): /data/misc/vpn/profiles/
4599898380687054558.pobj (Permission denied)

Here are the users-permission setting in AndroidManifest.xml now:

    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.WRITE_SETTINGS" /
android:name="android.permission.WRITE_SECURE_SETTINGS" />

 Some folders will always be private. You cannot just hack into those folders
without rooting your phone.

In short, there is no way.

1. Calling close() on a Cursor that's backing a ListView

Seems a bit weird to me. For example, if you are maintaining a cursor
pool (and so do not know how a given cursor is being used), you need
to be careful about which thread you call close() on.


2. Animations and Threads


with AnimationDrawable I can handle animations well. But this class
doesn't pay when I use a thread which draws on the canvas because it
has no sense to draw with AnimationDrawable to the background of a
View when there are a lot of animations to draw (http://
AnimationDrawable.html). So my guess is it to not use
AnimationDrawable but to read every single png file in an array of
BitMaps and draw the right offset to the canvas to the right time.

Is there a better way to use animations with threads?
