Well, it turns out that running iOS apps on the BlackBerry PlayBook has been done, so I have to take back my conclusion here; it may well be done on Android also. The PlayBook does have really good support for native apps and the C/C++ toolchain1, so that may be a factor here, but kudos to that guy for doing so much work porting the Objective-C libraries. ...

You don't have to uninstall, when you install an app already installed, you have to use adb install -r. (for more help, juste type adb) To uninstall an app, you have to use adb uninstall package-name (e.g. adb uninstall com.example.app).

First of all I disagree with your premise. I would not say that most apps are made for iPhone. I think there is a pretty even split with most apps targeting both platforms. That being said it would be impossible to run an iPhone emulator on Android since the devices are so similar in processing power. In order to create an emulator you need to run it on ...

Yes there are! Currently I found a Mame, Gameboy, N64, Snes, ScummVM (emulates classic adventure titles like Secret of Monkey Island, THE DIG, Day of the Tentacle, Grim Fandango and Broken Sword) and a Genesis emulator. All of them use the PSX buttons but you need to configure all of them in the internal emulator configuration. I have them all installed ...

Some Columbia University students have managed to get iOS apps running on Android with their Cider compatibility layer. As far as I can tell this is not something that is available to the public but it shows that there is some development effort into getting iOS apps running on Android. I wouldn't get too excited yet though as most iOS apps run very very ...

To uninstall the package using adb, you need to use the package name listed in the manifest, for example: adb uninstall com.shadowburst.showr You might also want to use the -k option to avoid deleting the app's data when uninstalling. You can also uninstall apps from the Settings app: click Apps, find your app in the list, then click Uninstall. This ...

Many iOS developers also port their apps to other mobile operating systems, including Android. If not - search the Android Market; chances are you will find a similar app, or at least one with similar functionality.

You might be able to use a QEMU based app like the one from MotionCoding, but I can't see it running on anything other than very high end Android devices. Even then, I doubt a VM will work very well...

I'm using the images provided by the Android-X86 project. They run fine in Virtualbox, and ship with Google Apps pre-installed. For details, please see: Android emulator for Windows (on our sister-site for Software Recommendations) How to install Android in Virtualbox at HowtoGeek Android Emulators at IzzyOnDroid (my site; scroll to the end of the page for ...

From what it sounds like, you not only want it to show a higher percentage but also 'use' this last little bit of juice in the battery. Technically you could just modify the icon to show full all the time or be slightly above the real level, but that's just the icon's look. I think to accomplish what you're trying to do you will have to modify the ROM ...

The app is most likely asking you for PS2's original BIOS files. Usually BIOS files are copyrighted by the manufacturer, and are illegal to distribute. You will have to do your own research on how to obtain them. Your best bet of getting developer's support is over at their SourceForge site, which seems to be the origin of the app.

It's not a matter of Dalvik being incapable of running certain types of programs, it's a matter of performance. Any runtime system based on non-native bytecode (e.g. Dalvik, JVM, .NET CLR) incurs some performance overhead in translating the bytecode into a form that the CPU can run. For most apps this isn't a problem, since most apps do relatively little ...

The problem here is that ADB forwarding attaches itself to the local loopback interface (127.0.0.1), and you have no forwarding from the LAN interface (192.168.43.198) to the loopback interface. The method you can use to achieve this depends on your platform. I don't know what you could use in Windows, but on Linux you can use rinetd and on OSX you can use ...

The SDK needs to be run as admistrator to be able to write those files. Just retry and run it with elevated rights.

Sorry, this isn't possible. iOS apps can only be run on iOS devices or under the simulator on OS X.

You should try PPSSPP, which is a PSP emulator. Although it's still in the beta stage it works fairly well.

Depending on how you have networking set up for your emulator, you might need to forward your SSH port from the emulator to a port on the host. Your emulator might be set up on a NAT/host-only network, so your SSH client can't actually reach the server. To test this, try pinging the emulator's IP address from the system with your SSH client.

You can't, sorry. We open-sourced it so that people would get involved and make these sorts of enhancements. So far, we've had precisely zero contributions back. Wanna be our first? :-)

A slide in a particular direction. Or may be a slide in multiple directions (say one slide to the right from the top left to top right, continued down from right top to right bottom). I don't know how effective it might be, but I guess worth a try.
