I'd like to know for possible options to change the Windows Manager
with NEW LOOK and INTERFACE using OpenGL ES 2.0  for Android SDK
V2.2 ?  With current design of android SDK , is this possible by any

What should be the starting point to INVESTIGATE /ESTIMATE  the work
required to be done ?

Is any one out there tried such endeavor ?

1. Honeycomb / 3.0 / Critical Java NIO Regression for "duplicate()"


I found a critical Java NIO flaw in Honeycomb / Android 3.0.

If "duplicate()" is called on a Buffer and that duplicate view is used
to write to the buffer data integrity is not guaranteed. This is a
regression for Honeycomb only at this point.

I got stuck with a ~45 hour debug cycle to catch this as it affected
my usage of the NIO and the OpenGL ES API resulting in no rendering
due to bad data. Unfortunately any usage of the NIO API and
duplicate() will cause problems regardless if it's networking, other
JNI usage, etc. This is a critical NIO flaw.

Please vote for this issue as it's critical and could affect a lot of
code out there; not just mine...

For fun you can read about the "pain and horror" this caused me:

2. how to test your apk?

if you developed some kind of app using emulator, is it time for test on a 
real device?

how to do that? there are a lot of different devices, they might have the 
same sdk version, but 
alter all there is some different.
