 So what got updated?  The firmware still says 1.5 though the software 
says 1.16.  So when I wanted to test a form that uses RelativeLayouts 
which were fixed in 1.6 it won't run saying the phone is still 1.5.

 It was just a maintenance release update and not an upgrade to 1.6: 

Verizon confirms that Droid Eris will receive an OS update sometime in
Q1 2010: 

Trackmaster - Motorsports Lap Timer 
Dynomaster - Performance Dyno

 Problem is that the release update doesn't make that clear and a lot of 
blogs thought it was going to be for 1.6.
I got rid of a foward reference and the layout worked with 1.5.

1. Widget update on some event. Is it possible?


I hope it is the right android group for this question.

I have a widget that is essentially an image button that toggles
display and speaker modes on a custom Android 2.1 platform. It also
displays different images to indicate what mode is currently selected.

We are adding a hardware button that can also change the same display
modes externally. I will have a driver that translates button presses
to some events (maybe emulate a key press through input events or
something else).

If the user changes the mode by pressing hardware button, the widget
will not know about that and will display wrong image. Is there a way
to synchronize the widget state with the current mode without
constantly polling the driver from the widget code?
Widget can start a background service that would poll my driver every
second or so and update the picture according to the mode reported by
the driver. It does not look like a good solution to me.
Can widgets receive any events besides clicks? Can widget detect when
it becomes visible ?
It looks like "remoteViews" cannot register any event listeners other
than OnClickListener :-(



2. SyncAdapter for GoogleContacts

I need to create my own SyncAdapter for GoogleContacts.

CoogleContacts are push and I would like the SyncAdapter to
update when there is a change in Contacts on Google Server.
Is this possible?
