 Hi ,
        I have created an app with using Alarm Manager and added the 7
min alarm. Find the code below.

package com.example.ReminderTest;

import java.util.Calendar;

public class ReminderTest extends Activity implements OnClickListener{
    /** Called when the activity is first created. */
        private String TAG="ReminderTest";
    public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        Button btn=(Button)findViewById(R.id.Button01);

        public void onClick(View v) {
                // TODO Auto-generated method stub
                 Log.d(TAG,"OnCLick Set tne time 1");
                        /*Set the Timer*/
                     Log.d(TAG,"OnCLick Set tne time");
                         Calendar cal = Calendar.getInstance();

                         Intent intent = new Intent(this, 
                         intent.putExtra("alarm_message", "O'Doyle Rules!");
                         // In reality, you would want to have a static 
variable for the
request code instead of 192837
                         PendingIntent sender = 
PendingIntent.getBroadcast(this, 192837,
intent, PendingIntent.FLAG_UPDATE_CURRENT);

                         // Get the AlarmManager service
                         AlarmManager am = (AlarmManager) 
                         am.set(AlarmManager.RTC_WAKEUP, cal.getTimeInMillis(), 


Now my question ,  would the set alarm  persist after reboot of
phone ?

No, it won't. The way handle it is to implement code to receive BOOT_COMPLETED broadcast, and start the alarm (and perhaps the service) then. -- Kostya Vasilyev -- WiFi Manager + pretty widget -- http://kmansoft.wordpress.com --

1. Testing a change on a G1 phone after modifying OpenCore ?

I am planning to change OpenCore slightly so that a local video file
that is currently being written (streamed through network) can be
played out. (my understanding: media player will seek the end of a
local file stored in an SD card )

Once I make a change in PVplayer included in OpenCore, can I test it
on a G1 phone? Otherwise, can I only do so in the emulator, or as a
standalone application (I saw some postings that OpenCore can be
compiled out of Android)?

My guess is G1 phone's firmware that contains the current Android OS
image ( compatible to SDK 1.0?) cannot be flushed out. For those
developers that develop a different device may have their testbed
circuit boards. In that case, they may be able to do whatever they

I wonder how people edit, compile, and test their own code while
working with Android source code..

A newbie to Android, yet hoping to learn it quickly.

2. Will the G1 version of android ever see any more updates from Google?

I'm pretty sure we'll be getting the 'Cupcake' update since RC usually
stands for "Release Candidate" which basically means that the Android
OS isn't finished (incomplete bluetooth stack for example). As to
whether that update comes over the air or not is up to the Carrier (T-
Mobile) but alot of people will just manually upgrade.
