 Hi All, I tried to load an app onto the Android dev 1 phone and got
the following message: Failure [-12]

Does anyone know what this message means?


Failure [-12]

 The list of install failure code is in the PackageManager class.

-12 is defined here: ;a=blob;f=core/java/android/content/pm/;h=cd48dcbcba3b5886f01a986ef71cb08412505e46;hb=refs/heads/eclair#l358

Basically the minSdkVersion in your app is higher than the device you are
trying to install on.

I'm guessing this is a relative old device image? More recent device builds
properly display most errors as INSTALL_FAILED_OLDER_SDK.

1. Google bakalan berhenti jualan Nexus One langsung dari web-ny

kopipes dari engadget:
*Google changes Nexus One plans, will stop selling handsets online*
Although Google launched the Nexus One with grand plans to radically change
the way consumers purchased phones and service, it looks like the experiment
has fizzled to an end -- the company just announced that will eventually
stop selling handsets online and instead partner with carriers to sell the
N1 in-store while using its website to promote "a variety of Android phones
available globally." Google says customers simply want a hands-on experience
before buying a phone, but we'd say the lack of subsidies from any carrier
except T-Mobile and some serious customer service issues probably played in
killing Google's original sales strategy -- and of course, both Verizon and
Sprint essentially refused the N1 in favor of the bespoke Incredible and EVO
4G. We'd also say that Android as a whole will remain unaffected, since the
Nexus One was never a huge seller, but it's still rare that a company simply
gives up a business model like this, and we don't know if Google will ever
follow up with a successor to the Nexus One. The Google Phone is dead,
people -- long live the Google Phone.

*Update: We just asked Google about future devices and support for current
Nexus One owners, here's what they said:
On the future: We will continue working with our partners to bring
cutting-edge new Android handsets to market, but we have nothing to announce
right now.

On support: This announcement doesn't have any immediate impact on support
for consumers who purchase Nexus One through the web store.*
