 Hi everyone,

I'm new here. i have a PDA, Palm Tungsten T2, and want to try porting
android in this machine.

Palm Tungsten T2 has the OMAP1510, within ARM925, arm v4. There is not
much words in discussions with OMAP1510, and i don't really know how
to do it. Is it possible to port android on this chip ? has anyone
tried before ? if you know, please tell me, i appreciate it.

Can i do it by following   http://elinux.org/Android_on_OMAP ? by the 
way, i have no EVM, but a cable USB ,,,,, it sounds difficult, isn't
it ? but there is a lab near by, i can get some tools if i know what i

Anyway, I am not a engineer hardware, and i have never touched this
domain before. so, i will be really greatful if you can help me a
little ?

Thanks a lot!

1. Question about intent filters for NFC tags (tech)

I'm reading the documentation on NFC tags and intent filters to match
on. For an action of ACTION_TECH_DISCOVERED, the intent filter must
list the technologies to match on, using a filter file. What I wanted
clarification on is whether or not I need to also specify for example
NfcA when I'm looking for a Mifare Utralight tag.

For the Mifare Ultralight tag, the documentation says this:
NfcA will also be enumerated on the tag, because all MIFARE Ultralight
tags are also NfcA tags.

This suggests to me that my XML filter file should say this:

<resources xmlns:xliff="urn:oasis:names:tc:xliff:document:1.2">

because if the tag is enumerating NfcA in addition to
MifareUltralight, my intent filter will only match if I specify both
technologies, not just MifareUltralight. Is that true? This applies to
IsoDep as well, which enumerates both NfcA and NfcB, in which case I
would need to specify all three. True? I don't have available hardware
to test this for myself. Thanks for your help.


2. How to disable global search key when dialog is shown?

Hi All,

I have a activity which will show a dialog, when dialog is presnet on the
screen and if the Global search key is pressed , it launches the search
When i come back from the search activity my dialog is disappeared and i can
see only the back ground activity.

How can i disable search key when my dialog is present.
I have tried the onKeyDown and onSerachRequested api's but still it launches
the search activity. I think the below mentioned functions work for base
activity and not for the dialog.

Pls do let me know if anybody knows the solution for it.

 public boolean onKeyDown(int keyCode, KeyEvent event) {
     // TODO Auto-generated method stub

     if (keyCode == KeyEvent.KEYCODE_SEARCH) {
            return true;
        } else return super.onKeyDown(keyCode, event);

    public boolean onSearchRequested() {
     // TODO Auto-generated method stub
     return true;
Thanks & Regards,
