 Hello Android people,
i'm from the Netherlands and I've got a update waiting to install.
I'm not performing the update because I want to be able to get root
access to my device and I'm not sure if what this update does maybe
I'll lose the ability to root my device. Also I've been looking
exactly what the update does. But I can't find a site saying what the
updates update...

 If you don't have a VERY good reason to get root, don't - search the
forums for why not.

 The reason I want root is because I need it to be able to configure
I want to connect to a network using dynamic WEP and the way to configure
this is or NetworkManager or wpa_supplicant's  network defenitions.
Something else, Is it possible to make a raw backup of my currently running
system? I mean something using dd if possible?

1. (Full) NFC support for Android (on a Nexus S, specifically)


After sifting through documentation and building NFC test applications
on a Nexus S, I've come to the conclusion the Android SDK still lacks
the functionality that NFC applications truly need in order to really
be useful in practice.

What's possible now:
- Reading and writing tags.
- P2P NDEF communication.

What's missing:
- Card emulation
- P2P NDEF support on terminals/readers (which I'm given to understand
is known as com.android.npp? NDEF Push Protocol. Can't find any
documentation on that anywhere..) which - I believe - is (still)
needed for P2P communication with regular desktop readers

As far as I can tell, the NFC controller chip (PN544
http://www.nxp.com/acrobat_download2/literature/9397/75016890.pdf) in
the Nexus S supports all NFC functionality, the android SDK does not.

Card emulation or proper documentation on how to initiate P2P
communication with a regular (desktop) (nfc) reader is very much a
requirement to unleash NFC's true potential, which is mobile payment.

It seems impossibly hard to find any information on whether or not
this - in my opinion vital - functionality is due to be implemented.

Does anyone have any information, thoughts, opinions, anything on this
subject? I'm really wondering what to expect from Android and NFC,
because frankly, I'm only half impressed so far.



2. NFC p2p with NFC Reader

Hi everyone,

I'm trying to setup an NFC p2p demo between a Nexus S (android 2.3.3)
and the ACR122U nfc reader.
My intention is to get these devices to exchange data  - however, I
havent managed to get too far with this.

Has anybody managed to get these two devices to interoperate in any
way ?

Is there any documentation on this ? I have tried the ACR122 sdk p2p
sample, but I dubt they implement the LLCP & NDEF protocols.

Besides this device, has anybody managed to get the Nexus S (android
2.3.3) to exchange information with any other NFC reader ??? If yes,
please help me out as I need to get something running asap.

Thanks for your time
