Is it possible to use an upgraded version of Webkit?

 Using Android 1.6, I find that in a certain case for a list displayed
using Webkit, some elements can indicate they have focus, but others
do not.  However, using Android 2.0, it works fine.  Is there a way of
distributing an upgraded version of Webkit with my app, so that it can
work correctly for devices that are running older versions of Android?

Which device are you testing this on?

I seem to recall some HTC Heros having a problem similar to this one,
several months ago.

2. Changing Launch activity seems to not work on Update

For a new update I am changing the start-up workflow for the
application.  Part of this is setting the
"android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" from one activity to another in my

When I run an update from what is on the market to what I download
from my website the application starts in the Activity where it used
to start before the update.  When I uninstall the application and
install it from the same package I got from my website it starts in
the Activity where I have now specified it to start.  Shorter version:
Update fails to update launching activity, uninstall-reinstall does
update the launching activity.

Is this a known issue?  Do I really need to add logic to correct for
people who update the app instead of installing fresh?  Asking people
to uninstall for an update is not a viable option.  Is there something
I can do to clean out whatever is getting saved that is causing the
app to launch with the incorrect Activity?
