As a result, I resorted to taking the arturl which Pandora does provide with all the track metadata and build my own compact downloader. The downloader downloads to RAM and then immediately gets inserted into the track.
Sadly there isn't much I can do about the crashes/freezes because I can't reproduce it with both the patcher and the patched apk.
The automatic download I was referring to is the no prompt option where pressing the thumbs up button downloads the song without asking. The conditional was the check for whether the song was downloaded already to prevent renamed copies. For example a song titled Avicii - Silhouettes.mp3 would be Avicii - Silhouettes-1.mp3. So I forgot to change the download conditional from true to false for it to start the download.
1st let me say that with regard programming I don't know what I'm talking about but a thought came to me as I was cleaning-up my Calibre eBook library shortly before reading this post. eBooks are often faced with non-optimal "book jacket" graphics. Calibre allows users to search the net for graphics to use as a new or replacement book jacket. Perhaps something similar would be possible here?
Thanks for the hard work.
