 Dear all,
   i am finding all android preloaded applications are located under /
system/app/. So i am wondering if there is way that we can preload our
own applications. Does it work that we just placed an app under /
system/app/?

You would need to make your application be part of the firmware for
whatever phone you are building. Details on that are best found at:

 After we make build, kernel, system.img and userdata.img are
generated. My question is, i wanna unpack system.img, and put my apk
directly to this image. is it possible, and what is the step?
Thanks,

It is best to ask firmware-related questions on a discussion list aimed
at firmware-related development:

 Lawrence,

Most of us on this list focus on the apps rather than the system image. 
It might be worth asking the question on the android-platform group.

1. How to get the screen dimension?

Hi everybody,

Does anybody know how to get the screen dimension? Is there any
difference between the emulator and the real mobile on the screen
dimension? Thanks in advance.

2. Begginer Questions

Maybe I'll be stoned but... seen a lot of examples but seen none
clarifying this:

Talking about the realtionship between classes and layouts... is any
layout related with any class? one, more than one, is there no relation
at all? layouts are just like "resources" used from the class you prefer
or from many of them?

layouts may be "embedded" into another layouts for making "complex" UIs?

I think an example makes it easy. Let's see we are trying to make a
simple application that manages a list of strings associating any string
with a color. I'll have an "element" which will be an object containing
one string and one color and then, I'll have a list containing elements.
When making the UI, let's say you want to have a lists showing the
elements and a text field with a button and a color picker (for adding a
new element to the list).

What's de idea on android? Having a layout for element (showing the
color and the string as you want) and another layout for the list (I
mean, a ListView containing the layout you generate for showing
elements) is the best choice? will you a class for managing everything?
or will you have different classes for controlling different layouts?

Syrely it's a question no-to-be-here but I don't know where to ask about
this. The examples I've found where too simple or too complicated (by
now I hope :D).

Thanks,
Luis.
