 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. linking jar into dex with eclipse?


I need a modified version of zxing in my project, so I copied the
android/src stuff into
my project, and copied the core/core.jar into libs/. In eclipse I
extended the build path
to include that jar file, now everything is found and compiled and it
looks fine.

Except that installing the dex in the emulator failed - the
com.google.zxing is not part
of the dex file. How can I using eclipse make sure the build process
will not only reference
but include that jar file when building the dex?

the commonsware book on android tells me, putting the jar files in
libs/ should be enough
for ant based builds, and for IDE I should tell it to reference the
jar. that works for building
well, but not for assembling a dex that has everything included.

any idea what I need to do?

Thanks, Andreas


2. Special permissions


I'm looking at the permissions list in android.Manifest.permission and
I see several permissions which I couldn't find any references to in
the documentation. Where they are used?

For example:




3. Is it possible install a package as "system"?

4. Which files are affected by the installer?

5. Apache libs and Android support

6. Error every time I try to install an app

7. How many threads can be created or how to avoid thread leak
