 I am not able to understand one simple issue.. if there is no root
access to file system even to the user who owns the phone then why on
earth would the dev guide include commands like

adb push <local>  sdcard .... when the sdcard of emulator is read
only.. Is this some kind of mockery or sarcasm with the users?????

Yes, we hate you, and laugh at every pain we can cause.

Plus the sdcard provides world read/write access.

you are mistaken, the sdcard is not read only on the emulator, you just must
provide one with the -sdcard option.
if you don't, an empty /sdcard directory is created on the root filesystem
but will not allow you to write anything to it.

 I had a similar problem. But what is going on above. I think Dianne
Hack... is with google. He is not supposed to behave
in this way. There are already some issues with gphone which do not
verify the claims that were made.

Hi all,

I have successful build Android 1.5 and installed on my G1. But I was

Currently there are many locales shown under the build.

2. ContentResolver query Grammar

String phonenumberString=PhontUliti.formatPhoneNumber(number);
            String[] contactsProjection=new String[]

                           contactsProjection, People.NUMBER +" = " 
                           null, People.DEFAULT_SORT_ORDER);

Why the contactsCursor is null?
The number is in   the contacts.
Is there any mistakks in the query?
