What version of Android to use when programming basic apps?

 First post here! I am new to programming on Android.

I would like to know, when you start Android development, which
version of Android do you usually choose (the latest or v1.5)?

The benefit of testing in the latest I guess would be having the
newest and best APIs (and any bugfixes), whereas the oldest assures
reverse compatibility. (Of course, you can always test in the
simulator and on a few devices). Anyways, when you create apps, what
version do you usually choose?

1. Creating a "standard" prefs panel

Hi all,

I'm using the Eclipse plugin for development.

I've created an pretty simple app -- but my "Settings" panel looks

I'd like to just use the "standard" android look for this.  When I say
"standard" -- I mean what you usually see when you use any Google app
and go to the settings:
There's a black panel with rows, each row has a separator which fades
to black at the ends.  Each "row" in the panel usually has some
larger, bold text which acts as a label, then some smaller lighter
text for a description.  There may be a checkbox or a downward-facing
arrow, or nothing.

So -- my question --

Is there some higher-level class in the SDK to help creating these
menus?  If not, how are these generally created?  LinearLayout with a
TableLayout, then a TableRow for each "row"?  How about the separator



2. Ganti Sdcard ke Transcend SDHC 8gb class 6

Thanks to bro hendro yg dah ngirimin barangnya...
Lumayan dikerjain ampe sekitar 4 jaman...

What I do :
1. Boot to recovery mode
2. Nandroid backup
3. Ngaktifin USB Mass toggle
4. Pindahin data sdcard ke kompie (backup data)
5. Matiin Magic
6. Ganti sdcard lama dgn transcend
7. Boot to recovery mode
8. Buat partisi dgn settingan 96 mb linux swap dan sisa fat32..
9. Ngaktifin USB Mass toggle
10. Pindahin data sdcard lama yg di kompie ke sdcard baru (termasuk nandroid
11. Nandroid restore
12. System reboot..
13. Buka app swapper, ubah nama partisi swap menjadi /dev/block/mmcblk0p2

Kondisi magic kembali ke kondisi normal..yihaaa..

Proses lama krn mencari nilai settingan yg pas..awal2 bikin partisi dgn
amonra recovery banyak errornya..sering partisi tidak terbaca dgn
baik...kemungkinan krn proses mounting sdcard yg lama dan gw ga sabar
nunggu, langsung ngecek lewat adb tapi ga nongol partisi ext dan linuxswap,
trs langsung coba flash rom cyanogen (rom yg pasti mengaktifkan app2sd dan
swap) trnyata tdk jalan swap dan ext partisi, tidak terbaca..trs hajar ulang
lagi partisi dgn nilai yg berbeda..tetep wae hasilnya masih error..(disini
harusnya sabaran dikit, trs reboot)

Sampe mikir jgn2 ada bug nih nih recovery amonra..hajar lewat cara manual di
adb shell jg begitu..pas di mkpartfs ext dan linux swap ga bisa..input
output error katanya..sampe mikir lagi, jgn2 sdcardnya bermasalah..

Akhirnya balik pakai recovery amonra lagi, bikin nilai setting partisi
baru..langsung nandroid restore..awal booting, swap masih ga jalan, di
aktifin lewat adb jg ga mau, rebooting..baru normal..

Settingan terakhir adalah..
Linux swap 96 mb
Ext 0 mb (ga diaktifin)
Fat32 sisanya..

Dgn settingan diatas maka jika menggunakan app swapper ubah nama partisinya
menjadi /dev/block/mmcblk0p2

Hasil test speed :
Sdhc 8 gb class 4 = 1039 kb/s
Sdhc 8 gb class 6 = 1302 kb/s

Yg class 4 sdcard bawaan nokia..
Test dilakukan hanya dgn perintah adb push saja...
