thanks very much
i just open box, not update firmware, but after that i update firmware with update sony mobile tool, it still same as , please help me!
i have a problem with battery icon, when i charged full, connected normal, battery status full but after 1 minutes it reduce 70%, after 50% and 10%, and turn off, if i don't use battery icon suddently increase full , i think issue with firmware not stable or hardware????
For me this definetely sounds like an device problem, so we are not able to fix it. That is why I recommended you to contact the support to get a working device.
I started from scratch and reused some parts of the code. My approach is to do everything with plugins. There will be a plugin manager that finds all installed plugins, let the user sort and disable/enable them, provides a list for the menu and an API for the dispatcher. The dispatcher is invoked for every received event and dispatches the event to either a built-in handler (time, menu etc.) or to the plugin (via the plugin manager) for navigation and alert events.
Currently my problem is to write the plugin api. I need bidirectional communication between different processes. Android provides IPC via AIDL. The plugin would be the service and would be started for long time with a start event (e.g. user opens the app on the LiveView) or short time (get plugin information for menu, capabilities etc). But the plugin must be able to initiate a connection, too. This is required e.g. for new notifications.
Intents would be another approach, but I think services are better.
You can find the working version here (only basic connection and one fake menu entry):
And here a first draft for the plugin manager, but not working because I never worked with IPC in Android and have no plan how to do it:
Yes, that's true. 2 seconds timeout and then - disconnect. I hope that GottZ will make a really good firmware with a better protocol.
I've been playing around with that now old version of the firmware, but it would be awesome if I could look at your new stuff. Could you come into the IRC channel while you code?
No.Neither Did it from disassembly of the manager - much easier than sniffing and guessing.
If you don't have that option and said gadget connects to an Android phone, put on a decent ROM with the full BlueZ stack (e.g., Cyanogen) and use hcidump. It's really, really useful!
Come to think of it, Wireshark might be good enough - the only thing I found useful about hcidump was the SCO audio dump.
Hello, I would like to ask if there's still someone behind the development of OpenLiveView, because I think it's a very good app, but has some functionality lacking. Anyways, I just wanted to know if it would accept plugins
I opened my LiveView with a knive and I think I can solder the on/off switch back on the pcb, but: I ripped off the cable (including the connector) that goes to the screen-buttons while opening the device... I don't think I can restore that.
wife bought me a liveview in feb 2013 for my birthday, well it arrived with the usb pins borked off the pcb inside so i soldered some bus wire to the usb pins, charges ok, BUT i can't flash the firmware via the update app (tooo tiny to solder all the wires with lifted pad on the pcb).... my question here is, is there a way to update via the bluetooth? or the pin pads inside on the pcb (and if so on this last bit, is there a good howto written)?
like i said it charges cool, OLV works great well version 18.104.22.168 the 1.0.3* doesnt work that well.
but i think my major hangup is the firmware needing updated.
or better yet will OLV ever handle update over bluetooth
i'm going to search through the forums some more and see if i skipped over the jtag or usb area for the live view...
renzenicolai is working on it still I assume, development just looks slow (no git commits in a few months). Openliveview currently has plugin support, its just limited, unfinished, and not finalized.
What functionality are you missing?

I'm sorry for being a noob again but what is OLV?
Can there be a rom for the LiveView in the coming years?
Is the LiveView open source?
+ can anyone provide me a detailed spec sheet of the LiveView... Like the processor and alll..
