 Sorry for the cross-post, but it's kind of urgent.

I got this message "A system update is available. While your phone is
updating, you cannot make emergency calls. Your phone will restart
during the update."
I own an unlocked G1 (I'm in Bulgaria), so I'm concerned that I'll
have to unlock it again after the update. If anyone has got the
update, can you verify that it didn't require a re-activation?

Thanks a bunch!!!!
Stoyan

 @ JBQ, I'm sorry for the wrong place to ask. I got this impression
that android-discuss was the "android internals" list, I don't know
how this occurred to me. Sorry again and *thanks* for your reply!
@ Cyril - Thanks mate!

 What he's not mentioning (and this is importnat if you are a developer) is
that the update will remove root access, so you lose most of the (potential)
control over your device.

 This Still involves android so its still the right place. If you
update from your phone then its safe.

@ Disconnect: I am a developer and am wondering what's the benefit of
having root access to the device? I don't think I need to tamper with
the file system directly or something. All I want to do is deploy my
app on the device and check it works as expected, for the rest I have
the emulator, right? Right? ;(

@ Xavier: Yes, I did the update from the phone. Basically, I don't
know how and when and if it downloaded anything because it took me
half a day to figure out that once I set up EDGE[1] it wouldn't go
off. So when I got the dialog (after I got the reply "it's safe") and
hit "Update" the phone restarted immediately, updated itself in a few
seconds, restarted again and that was it.

[1] Btw, how do I turn off EDGE (except for typing an invalid APN)?
I've googled extensively and either google's not my friend, or there
simply isn't a solution to this.

Thanks again,
Stoyan

 That patch was an auto update around mid November. It hasn't given me
any problems. You can let it install.

2. Determining which pointer is moving

Hi all.  I am processing multi-touch MotionEvents and have a need to
only process MOVING pointers when an ACTION_MOVE is detected (rather
than all pointers).  Currently, I have a loop that goes through each
pointer in my ACTION_MOVE case statement and sends it off for
processing, but it would be great to just process the pointer(s) that
triggered the ACTION_MOVE).

One solution would be to store the location for each pointer on each
ACTION_MOVE, and when a subsequent ACTION_MOVE is triggered, loop
through each pointer, get it's position and determine if that has
changed at all from the previous movement.  It's a bit clunky, so I
wanted to ask here to see if there might be a simpler way to determine
which pointer(s) are moving and triggered the ACTION_MOVE in the first
place.

Thanks for any advice,

Paul
