 This is a sign to me that the HTC Magic won't come out for quite a while. I
just hope not too many people are holding off buying the G1 to wait for the
Magic.

 ..so where is the SDK that the magic google team (or whomever else, don't
get picky here) is working with?

We aren't working with an SDK, we develop in the platform tree.

Right there in the public sources. The problem is really in packaging;
building a proper SDK package is tricky at the moment
and it's easy to generate one that doesn't work 100% as it should (as
experienced with the recent SD Card auto-mounting
problem which was due to a missing configuration file).

We're working on fixing this and providing detailed instructions on how to
build an SDK. However, one should expect this
kind of problem episodically when trying to build its own SDK.

And as Dianne said, most of the team works in the source tree directly,
which generates images that are a bit different than the
ones packaged for a SDK (this is also true of the "generic" product in the
open-source tree); that's why releasing an official
SDK takes time by the way, we need to ensure that everything works as it
should, even though the rest of the team often
makes modifications that work on "normal" build products, but not on the SDK
system images themselves for really corny
reasons.

  built from GIT cupcake source as well as the HOME button in the emulator
still doesn't do anything.

I understand that the SDK, especially Windows-based one, may be lacking, but
is the HOME button in cupcake supposed to work the same way as in 1.0?

Thanks

 t is, this problem is just due to the fact that the SDK thinks the
system is not provisioned. The SDK usually relies on a special apk to
do this automatically and I don't know why it doesn't happen for you.

I don't know exactly what you did, but I'm sure that the "cupcake" branch on
the open-source tree is not working properly. You need to build from the
"master" branch instead at the moment to get something working.

For the record, the cupcake changes have been integrated into the master
branch already.



Yes, HOME *should* just work. It's probably another configuration problem,
where a file is missing from the generated system image for some odd reason;
certainly not a deliberate change.

1. differentiating device rotations

hi
[I moved this question from the android-developer list, hoping for a response]

We are porting Android to a new device (which is, of course, not a phone).
We want to provide different user experience depending on the
rotations of the device,
and such factors. Someone told me that Cupcake can differentiate
between different kinds of flips
and rotations of the device. Is it so?

Does Cupcake distinguish the clockwise and anti-clockwise rotations?
Is it able to set UI layouts according to the direction of rotation?

Is this a dumb question, after all? :)

Also, what happens when the device is flipped upside down? Does
cupcake deal with it at all?

thanks
