a3e90798b7ad3ed62e5b31842c699b2f98bd457b 18-Oct-2012 Kenny Root <kroot@google.com> Robustly add symlink and add for non-primary users

Amazingly, some apps still don't use the nativeLibraryPath. So add a lib
symlink for non-primary users to fix that.

Also, there was an error when the symlink existed that it would give up.
This shouldn't really happen, but in that case, just remove it and
create a new one to be safe.

Also, move the downgrade code to the appropriate place. This downgrade
case triggered the above symlink existing bug.

9bbd70a96397bd5f1445ad6c21977fccfb350dfa 10-Sep-2012 Kenny Root <kroot@google.com> Remove "unlinklib" command from installd

unlinklib is no longer necessary since libraries are now either stored
in an ASEC container or in /data/app-lib

Replace lib directory with a symlink to the /data/app-lib directory even
if it's a dangling link. That way developers don't name something "lib"
in their directory which gets blown away during an update.

To avoid downloading large OBB files separately for each user,
provide a shared view of /sdcard/Android/obb to all apps. Added
upgrade step to migrate the owners existing OBB files to become
the default view.

Emulated external storage always has multi-user support using paths
like "/data/media/<user_id>". Creates and destroys these paths along
with user data. Uses new ensure_dir() to create directories while
always ensuring permissions.

Add external storage mount mode to zygote, supporting both single-
and multi-user devices. For example, devices with physical SD cards
are treated as single-user. Begin migrating to mount mode instead
of relying on sdcard_r GID to enforce READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE.

197a0c82a1fbf337ec0a85d36b6b89c3d6e8a0ac 12-Jul-2012 Dianne Hackborn <hackbod@google.com> Improve cleanup of file caches.

This rewrites installd's code for deleting cache files to be better:

- Isn't really stupid about just deleting directories in the order
they are found on the filesytem; now collects all cache files and
sorts them by mod time to determine which to delete.
- Also deletes cache files in /data/media and for all users.

This also tweaks DeviceStorageMonitor to be a little smarter about
deciding when to flush cache files, having upper and lower limits
that it allows memory to get down to and then flash files to reach
the higher free storage limit. This should reduce the amount that
we perform flushing when starting to reach the storage limit.

Finally add a new pm command to force a cache flush.

d0c5f515c05d05c9d24971695337daf9d6ce409c 08-Jun-2012 Dianne Hackborn <hackbod@google.com> Fix issue #6295373: "Package com.google.android.apps.authenticator2 has...

...mismatched uid: X on disk, Y in settings" errors on Froyo and Gingerbread

Deal more gracefully with the uid changing in three ways:

1. If the uid on disk has become root, then have installd change it to
the application's uid. This is to correct a potential case where
installd was interrupted while linking or unlinking the libs dir,
during which it temporarily changes the owner of the dir to root
so that a malicious app can not get in its way. So if the uid on
disk has become root, we assume we can safely just change it back
to the correct uid.

2. When scaning packages at boot, use the same "delete and rebuild data
directory" code for third party applications as we have for system
applications. This allows us to at least end up in a state where the
app will run, even if its data is lost.

3. But we really don't want to get in to case 2, so if an application
update is being installed and we find that the uid we now have for
the app is different than the one on disk, fail the update. This will
protect against for example a developer changing the sharedUserId of
their app and getting into this bad state.

b858dfda5012a1040927ed62c3bb856c3294d882 02-Feb-2010 Dianne Hackborn <hackbod@google.com> Implement system data migration support.

This adds three new features:

- <original-package android:name="com.foo" /> manifest tag.
This allows an .apk to specify another package it originally came from,
propagating all state and data from the old to new package.

- <adopt-permissions android:name="com.foo" /> manifest tag.
In some more complicated cases, a new .apk may be a combination
of multiple older .apks that each declared their own permissions.
This allows you to propagate the permissions from these other
.apks into the new one.

- A new system/etc/updatecmds directory.
You can place files here which describe data files to move from
one package to another. (See below for details.)

Also in this change: we now clean up the data directories of
.apks that disappear from the system image, and some improvements
to logging and reporting error messages.

A typical file in the updatecmds directory looks like this:


This says that for com.google.android.sfs, there are two packages to
move files from:

From com.google.android.providers.talk, the file databases/talk.db.
From com.google.android.googleapps, the file databases/gls.db

As part of moving the file, its owner will be changed from the old
package to whoever is the owner of the new package's data directory.

If those two files had existed, after booting you would now have the


Note that all three of these facilities assume that the older .apk
is completely removed from the newer system. The WILL NOT work
correctly if the older .apk still remains.
