  think I've found the problem, WebView seems to NOT follow HTTP
redirect (302) as response for an HTTP POST (the login form).
Is there any option to enable redirect support after POST on WebView ?

HTML login form works in Android browser and fails with WebView - Android bug ?

 f I remove webview.setWebViewClient(new AuthWebViewClient()) which
public boolean shouldOverrideUrlLoading(WebView view, String
return true;
Then redirect after POST works.

So, I think I didn't understand how to use WebViewClient to make all
pages opened in the same WebView.
Any suggestion ?

2. Loading 2.0.1 to ADP2

Hi All,

Please forgive my ignorance. Athough I see the following in the
official description of the ADP2:

Modify and rebuild the Android operating system, and flash it onto a

I'm not able to find anywhere a downloadable 2.0 or 2.0.1 for the
ADP2, nor any indication that it could be done. To the contrary I see
all kind of discussions suggesting it's either not possible, or at
least not YET possible.

May someone please explain a developer withOUT any Android specific
background, what is so difficult in uplading a new version of an O/S
to a device that's specifically desgined for such purpose?

Do I really need to wait for HTC?

Thanks in advance,
