Launch app through adb shell

By -

This is about how to launch android application from the adb shell.

Command: am

Look for invoking path in AndroidManifest.xml

Browser app::

# am start -a android.intent.action.MAIN -n com.android.browser/.BrowserActivity
Starting: Intent { action=android.intent.action.MAIN comp={com.android.browser/com.android.browser.BrowserActivity} }
Warning: Activity not started, its current task has been brought to the front

Settings app::

# am start -a android.intent.action.MAIN -n com.android.settings/.Settings
Starting: Intent { action=android.intent.action.MAIN comp={com.android.settings/com.android.settings.Settings} }

Enjoy the geeky style of launching apps :)
