upgrade issues and other market problems for developers

 We think we have figured out a problem with copy protection and how it
relates to upgrades.


We hope to save developers the headache and one-star ratings we have
received due to this issue (as if the one-stars related to the
inability to download!).

Google really needs to think about developers and attempt to remove
ratings and comments that are clearly related to their bugs not ours.
Otherwise, I don't think they are taking care of developers or users.

 I agree that Google needs to fix these bugs. And until they can be
fixed, at least let it be known to everyone who has a phone what the
problems are.  I'm tired of getting 1 star ratings because my app
won't fully delete right away, which is not my problem. I've even gone
so far as to say this in my description instead of what my app is
about to try and let people know before they download.  I still got an
idiot who gave a 1 star because of the deletion problem.
Google, please address these issues.

 I have this problem too. Hopefully google will fix the problem and
remove the one star rankings caused by the download issue. This is
obviosly going to affect everyone who publishes to the marketplace so
just balance it out.

 I have the problem too :(
Do I just instruct the users to uninstall and reinstall?

 I agree -these one start rankings with comments related to the
inability to download are effecting everyone now.  But when it is
resolved, it will be penalizing early adopter developers.  Can Google
resond to this?  Should this be posted in a different forum?

How to enable and read these logs?


2. emulator trace wanted

I have just finished the first port of the android dev system to
OpenBSD/amd64, surely to still contain quite a few bugs, but it has
gone through the compilation phase ok.

When I start the emulator, I have just guessed at appropriate
arguments, it fires up the gui, and it looks nice, but then it sits
with "ANDROID" in the window, just highlighting gui elements as the
mouse passes over them, and having the cursor blink for about ten
seconds, then it stops.  I have waited quite a while for a potential
initialization of the disk images, but nothing seems to happen,
although CPU is chewing.  If someone could send me a trace with -debug
all, it could help me find out where it ends working...

or any hints on what part I may have problem would be appriciated of
course.  I supect a 64bit issue, saw quite a few warnings during the
builds with pointers casted to longs.. felt really nineties actually.
Well, it's fun to do porting work like this...
