Create a private fork of a public repository
View private_fork.md

The repository for the assignment is public and Github does not allow the creation of private forks for public repositories.

The correct way of creating a private frok by duplicating the repo is documented here.

For this assignment the commands are:

  1. Create a bare clone of the repository. (This is temporary and will be removed so just do it wherever.)

git clone --bare git@github.com:usi-systems/easytrace.git

DISCLAIMER: Follow these instructions entirely at your own risk. I, nor my company (Digital Ashes PTY LTD) take any responsibility whatsoever for any damage done to any device/property that occurs as a result of following these instructions.

The following steps describe how to install Action Launcher 3 on a rooted device as a system app, so that you will be able to enable Action Launcher 3's Google Now integration.

Prerequisites

  1. A rooted device (Google if you need help here).
  2. A computer with [ADB][0] installed, and a working knowledge of ADB.
  3. A copy of an Action Launcher 3 APK on your computer. [APKMirror.com][1] is a good place to grab a copy from. All you're doing here is setting Action 3 as a system app, so any version of the app will work. From there, the Action 3 will update via the Play Store like a typical pre-installed app (such as Gmail or YouTube).

So long as you pass in a valid View, and are using Jelly Bean or later, the animation should automatically apply.

Icon pack makers wanting to implement 'apply icon pack' functionality for Action Launcher should just include this snippet as appropriate.
View gist:5646240
Button actionLauncherButton = (Button) findViewById(R.id.action_launcher_button);
actionLauncherButton.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
@Override
public void onClick(View v) {
// Check Action Launcher is installed
Intent intent = getPackageManager().getLaunchIntentForPackage("com.actionlauncher.playstore");
if (intent != null) {
// TODO BY YOU: set this package name as appropriate. Eg "kov.theme.stark"
String yourPackageName = ;
