 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. What is Gdi and Why Should You Care?

http://www.freedom.ws/www2

If GDI is something new to you, then you will find more information on it
shortly. GDI is the company that has the exclusive rights to sell the .ws
domains, which stands for website. This is what makes GDI unique.
Exclusivity puts Global Domains International on a league of its own. The
best part about all of this and the best part for you and me and everyone
that needs more money, Global Domains International has decided to share
it revenue with us.

GDI is applying the old rule that when you give something to someone, you
will also get something in return. Call it win-win situation, call it ou
win some and then I also win some The idea is that Global Domains
International is selling the .ws domains pretty good because the .ws are a
good alternative to .com names (I sure that you know that good .com
domains are harder and harder to find).

And here what they did. GDI made a program which allows all its
participants to earn an equal share of its profits. They realized that the
more people they would help, the more money they would make. The main point
here is that Global Domains International is a great way to make money
online even if you are a complete beginner at it. To start making money with
GDI, you just have to enter the 7 day free trial and get more information
about Global Domains International. As soon as someone signs up to take the
free trial as well, you are on your way to making money.

As soon as the 7 days are over, you will be billed for which is the sum you
must pay monthly for the GDI website and hosting (which is also provided by
Global Domains International. For every single person that starts a GDI
business under you, you will receive a payment on a monthly basis and for 5
levels deep. Everyone receives throughout 5 levels deep.

Il show you a small example of the possibility of earning with the GDI
company: Let say that you join GDI today and you start going through their
material (they have a whole bunch of tools and information that will help
you) until get a hang of what to do and how to do it. Then you can start
advertising GDI and someone signs up for the GDI 7 day free trial. You help
that person a little bit, by sending 2 or 3 emails and as a result of that
help, that person also refers another person. This means that you are now
making /month only because youe took the time to help someone get to know
GDI.

And this is easy. And also, that person that is in your level 1 downline is
also earning per month as he signed up another person. If you keep this up,
youl make a great residual income with GDI. And the best thing about
Global Domains International is that you can only help the first level, the
one under you, and from there on you can take your mind off of it, as from
now they will copy what you done and so on and you will be paid for every
person they sign up.
