I want to daemonify my python script on Android device. That is, it should be automatically invoked on boot up.

Appreciate your help.

Basically you want to run a script at bootup time. See this thread should help -
http://android.stackexchange.com/questions/6558/how-can-i-run-a-script-on-boot
This is an Android OS matter -- how does anything get started on Android at boot time? Do the same with your Python invocation.

I don't know anything about Android programming, but for Linux following may be helpful:

May not directly applicable to you, but can help.

Those aren't the same thing. To daemonise a program is independent of whether the program starts automatically; it can start automatically without detaching (e.g. the process that requests a login) it can detach on request without starting automatically (e.g. any daemon started by a user), etc.

If you want the program to start automatically on boot up, that's not a python question; you want to find out about the Android boot process and what facilities it has for starting a program on boot. But that's independent of Python and independent of daemonising the program.

If you want to have a program become a daemon (i.e. a background process) the python-daemon library is designed for this. But that's nothing to do with automatic start-up, nor Android; you're on your own for those.

I am trying to control Aeroplane mode on Android using Python code. I am running QPyPlus python. When I execute this code(that is widespread in the net),

#!/usr/bin/python 
import android droid = android.Android()
# go to airplane mode
 droid.toggleAirplaneMode()

droid.makeToast('exiting')

I get the error 'no such attribute Android()'.

One important thing is, I want to be able to do this without the need to reboot the Android device and any other working solution is also fine long as it is invokeable through Python.

I want to use the stdout of child process as an input of another thread, but some how I am not able to read the stdout. Using Popen I have created a child process and stdout of it I have redirected to PIPE (because I don't want that to be printed on with my main process). Now using this statement,"Line=Proc.stdout.readline()" I want to read stdout of child process and I have to do operation on that. but somehow i am not able to read from stdout of child process.

Following is the code snapshot -

Proc = Popen(["python.exe","filename.py"],stdout=PIPE)

while True:
            Line = Proc.stdout.readline()
            print Line

Here,
Filename.py(Child process) is continuously printing "Hello World!!" in place of reading stdout of child process.
