 You can try SystemProperties.set().

 Your AP don't have root permission to do it.
Try using a booting exist "excutable" to do it.

1. Somebody have succeeded in Android Market registration?

Hi forks,

http://market.android.com/publish is now available for developers. I try
complete registration of Android Market. But that haven't succeeded.

The Android Market site says, "Waiting for Google Checkout payment
And Google Checkout says, "Thanks for your interest in publishing your
applications to Android Market. Please return to the Android Market
Developer Site to finish your registration."

Somebody have succeeded in developer registration?

2. Idea: map an on-screen "back" button the upper right corner of the screen

The way the T-Mobile G1 is made, it's almost impossible to use it
completely with one hand in vertical mode because the back button is
way down at the bottom and difficult for the thumb to reach.

I say "almost impossible" because the only answer that I've found is
to flip the phone 180 degrees, so it is upside down with the screen
facing up, hit the back button with my thumb, and then flip it again
back to the normal position. While I have become quite adept at this,
it is a) ridiculous and beneath my diginity :o) and b) it's only a
matter of time before I drop it onto the subway tracks or into the
oncoming path of a steamroller.

As a solution, I propose a simple application that will turn the upper
right corner, approximately where the time is, into a back button.
That's it. Nothing else. That space does nothing right now except
flash the date and the windowshade, and it could still do that.

I don't know the first thing about building apps for Android, or else
I'd do it myself.

This humble idea is free for the taking. I make no claims on it. Code
with speed, my good people!
