Access a usb flash drive from the terminal

1.Find what the drive is called

You'll need to know what the drive is called to mount it. To do that fire off:

sudo fdisk -l

You're looking for a partition that should look something like: /dev/sdb1. Remember what it's called.

2.Create a mount point

Create a new directory in /media so you can mount the drive onto the filesystem:

sudo  mkdir /media/usb

3.Mount!

sudo mount /dev/sdb1 /media/usb

When you're done, just fire off:

sudo umount /media/usb

Simple example of loader in android

public class User {
    private String mName;
    public User(String mName) {
        this.mName = mName;
    }
    public String getmName() {
        return mName;
    }
    public void setmName(String mName) {
        this.mName = mName;
    }
}

public class DataLoader extends Loader<List<User>> {
    private List<User> mData;
    public DataLoader(Context context) {
        super(context);
    }
    @Override
    protected void onStartLoading() {
        if (mData != null) {
            deliverResult(mData);
        }
        if (takeContentChanged() || mData == null) {
            forceLoad();
        }
    }
    @Override
    public void forceLoad() {
        try {
            Thread.sleep(2000);
        } catch (InterruptedException e) {
            e.printStackTrace();
        }
        List<User> data = new ArrayList<>();
        data.add(new User("Tuan"));
        data.add(new User("Thuy"));
        data.add(new User("Hanh"));
        data.add(new User("Linh"));
        data.add(new User("Huyen"));
        data.add(new User("Dan"));
        data.add(new User("Tam"));
        data.add(new User("Thuy"));
        deliverResult(data);
    }
    @Override
    public void deliverResult(List<User> data) {
        mData = data;
        super.deliverResult(data);
    }
    @Override
    protected void onReset() {
        super.onReset();
        mData = null;
    }
}

Programmatically set the listSelector for a ListView to the default for the current theme

private static void setDefaultListSelector(ListView listView, Context context) {
    TypedArray typedArray = context
                            .obtainStyledAttributes(null, 
                            new int[]{android.R.attr.listSelector}, 
                            android.R.attr.listViewStyle, 0);
    Drawable drawable = typedArray.getDrawable(0);
    listView.setSelector(drawable);        
}
