Confused about the new market

 Hi All,

When I first heard the news that the market will be accepting paid
apps, I went into high gear.  At the end of my marathon, I had the app
the way I wanted it, signed it, and went to upload.  That I wasn't
able to upload it for a fee, I had already read.  However, I was also
not able to upload it with the same namespace.  What that means, is
all my testers utilizing the free version will be having a data issue.

I'm pretty sure that I have all my ducks in a row on this, because my
last release contained an export to the memory stick.  I can make
available some sort of free tool that will enable my users to export
under the old version and import into the new.  It's extra work, but,
if there is a need, it can be done.

However, I thought that all my users of the preview software were
eligible for free upgrades, for the future.  Is this true?  If so, how
do I let them know that they are eligible for the new software, that
is now a pay version?  If I'm to play by the rules, I believe that's
what I'm supposed to be doing.  Which, personally, I think is a
wonderful idea.  Because these are the people that trusted me, an
unknown, by putting my software on their devices.  By all rights, and
everything I read, they should be getting the "for pay" software for

Is this even possible?  Any insights would be appreciated.

I would imagine that robo defence is doing custom scrolling within their
application, and not relying on a UI component for that piece.

2. How to change /sdcard to be not a read-only file system


I am trying to copy an image to the emulator sd card by:

$ adb push ~/Desktop/bullet_ball_glass_red.png

But I get an error saying:
failed to copy '/Users/n179911/Desktop/bullet_ball_glass_red.png' to
'/sdcard/bullet_ball_glass_red.png': Read-only file system

So I tried to go to adb shell to manual change the /sdcard to non
read-only, but it still wont let me.
$ adb shell
# su
# chmod 777 /sdcard
Unable to chmod /sdcard: Read-only file system
