 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. CheckoutCheck Open-Sourced

A while back I wrote my own Android app to access information from
Google Checkout regarding my Android app sales, using the Google
Checkout APIs. I was frustrated by the clumsy, multi-step process of
checking via the browser on my phone and also by the limited range of
reporting via the Google Checkout web interface. I have a number of
different apps, and what I wanted was a simple report that told me how
many of each app I had sold during a particular time period.
Amazingly, the Google Checkout reporting does not provide this. You
can either manually count the sales for each app by name, or export
the data in CSV format, which does not provide the app names (this
still boggles my mind).

Anyway, I wrote an app called CheckoutCheck that will generate simple
sales reports, telling you how many of each app you sold for a
particular time range, and the gross and net revenue for those sales.
To do this, I had to pull two different XML files from Google, one of
which has the sales figures, the other which has the product names,
and cross-reference them to generate the report. Often, the XML files
are huge, so the app can run very slow, and currently isn't feasible
for generating reports for periods longer than a day or two.

Now I've open-sourced the app. It's available here:


Hopefully those interested in modifying or expanding it for their
specific needs will find it useful. If someone only wanted gross and
net revenue for a particular period, they wouldn't need to pull the
XML with the product names and do the cross-referencing. Such a report
would be much faster and would be better suited for querying longer
time ranges. I'm not interested in developing the app further, but
hopefully some devs out there in the community might be willing to
build on it. If you have any questions or comments, just let me know
at polyclefsoftw...@gmail.com.



2. Easiest way to programmatically check if the Market app is installed?

> Thanks Mark. Here is my problem in more detail:

Ah. In that case, pass your Intent to PackageManager's
queryIntentOptions() method. If you get back an empty list, Market will
not be available (more accurately, nothing will be able to handle your

I think you can use ConnectivityManager to handle scenario #2.

If by "package not found" in #3 you mean that com.mycompany.myapp doesn't
exist, I suspect there is no clean way to handle that.
