I seen that. Buy didn't see where duh! Found. Thanks
For those of you who likes to save battery and you have data off, the sendemail will fail if data is off and you will not receive an email. Here's what I did. Tested it and it works for ME!
You can adjust the wait time and some may not need to have that task. For me it takes a few seconds to bring data up.
I added task 2, 3, & 10
Yeah data always takes a couple of seconds to establish a connection so a wait will be needed.
i keep getting USER_EMAIL Missing.
I have checked and double checked, no extra spaces at the end of the email address for example, the address is correct, any ideas?
I got it to work but I have to say, the instructions were a bit confusing. SL4A doesn't come with Tasker, I had to download it from the link since it's not on the Play Store either. Once I have SL4A installed, I opened it, and installed Python, I had to open Python and click on the install button. It downloaded and extracted some files, IDK what they were. Then I set up the email client on my phone and linked it to my Google account (I'm not sure it that was necessary or if the Gmail app would have been enough).
After I did all that it still didn't work. I went into Tasker and opened the Task and pressed the play button, I got a "EMAIL_USER missing". I had to edit this:
+ Script > Run SL4A Script > Name (Search icon) sendemailA.py > Pass variables "%EMAIL_TO,%EMAIL_ATTACH,%EMAIL_SUBJECT"
+ Script > Run SL4A Script > Name (Search icon) sendemailA.py > Pass variables "%EMAIL_USER,%EMAIL_PSWD, %EMAIL_TO,%EMAIL_ATTACH,%EMAIL_SUBJECT"
And that worked.
Yes you're right I missed two variables when I copied the text (you know you simply could have imported the profiles right? The steps are not so relevant now.)
I too had to install sl4a but a couple of people in the first few posts said it now came with tasker. Amended back.
There is a link that explains how to install interpreters (such as python). I am not responsible for its content however.
Aye I saw I could off, but I don't know anything about variables so I thought I'd follow the instructions.
Edit - email now works, picture isn't attached though.
Need tasker screenshots if you need help. Blank out email address and password first though. I assume the information in those fields is correct
I did see the link to download the profile but it says it's untested so I figured I'd do it manually. It was better that way because I learned a few things along the way :thumb:
Of course, testers are always welcome too
If anyone has successfully tested, I can remove the "untested"
I did it, i made a stupid mistake,turns out in the%EMAIL_ATTACH field, then /Sd/etc etc i had another %EMAIL_ATTACH in there..
can't believe i didn't even notice!
what if you dont want it to overwrite the last pic each time a new pic is taken?
You would rename (move) the picture before saving the new one. It gets complicated if you want to save more than two.
There are guides to this. I left it out because there would be hundreds of pictures of me. Still is mind. In my mailbox
Works perfectly on my esteem. Thanks.
Hi there. My profile is almost the same except that the picture uploads itself by using Dropbox. My problem is that my HTC One X doesn't take a picture when I use pattern lock even though I use the same setup as you. So I was thinking, do you have a solution?
hey i am just curious this would only work with pattern unlock and not pin lock right?
@Fuzie do u have secure settings and secure settings helper installed?
my phone is not rooted so i think that's the problem. Your Phone have to be rooted before you can install the helper.
i'm currently using it with pin so it's not just for patternlock. it depends on the settings you make in secure settings I think
i dont think it works with pin i have it setup it only works when i set a pattern and not a pin
Sounds like it depends on the phone now, is your phone tooted? now i really just want to know, because i would love to have it work with pattern too!
i am using the galaxy s3 rooted running omega rom 4.1.2 and it does not work with the pin lock only with pattern.
that explains why u can use the pattern. I still can't figure out why you can't use pin option. doulbe checked that you are not using keyguard instead of pin?
im using pin option in the s3 but i dont think its supported
