Building Android with arm-eabi-4.4.0 toolchain

I can see that in the prebuilt.git respository [1] there is an arm-
eabi-4.4.0 toolchain that I suppose is valid to build the Android
Kernel / Stack. Am I right?
As long as I know, gcc-4.4.0 supports armv7 architecture and that's
just what I'm looking for.
Can we use this toolchain to build both Kernel and platform for armv7

Of course... regardless of other hardware configuration support, just
the ability to create armv7 compatible binaries.

1. singletask activity for games

I am completely confused with this. I am writing a game and there
should only be on instance of this game.

So far I have:
Splash screen activity
Menu activity
Game activity

The Game activity is the default activity and it will fire off an
intent with result to start the splash screen activity on the

The splash screen activity loads all the bitmaps required for the
game, once it is finished it will return the result to the game
activity which then knows all the bitmaps are finished.

The Game activity then will fire off an intent to show the Menu

Now since I only ever want one instance of my game. Should I make the
Splash screen, Menu and Game activity all singleTask?

If my Game activity is singleTask and I start a Menu activity that is
singleTask, is the Menu on a seperate task to the Game activity? How
can i make them all in one task?

I guess in my case whenever the Game activity gets an oncreate I can
safely assume I have to start from scratch i.e display splash screen
etc as I cannot assume the bitmaps are in memory.


2. How to log test results in a file? - logcat error

Try piping the output to a file: "adb logcat > <fileName>"

But I'm curious why you need to do this rather than just using Eclipse
with the Android plugins to run your tests and obtain the test
