That is not a "G1 Dev Phone". It is an Android Dev Phone 1(or ADP1 for

Next question: did you elect to turn on copy protection in the Market?
If so, that's why you can't see it -- the ADP1 does not have access to
apps covered under the Market's copy protection system:

It is not terribly effective. If you want copy protection, look at the
AndAppStore copy protection system.

1. Game Development with Multiple Levels

Hello all!

I'm currently working on a game which will consist of multiple
different levels. Forgive me if this seems rudimentary! I'll use the
original Sonic the Hedgehog as an example.

In sonic, you have various screens, each with different level designs
for the player to traverse. These levels consist of tiles which are
arranged to aid, or hinder the player in his attempt.

The question I have is how do you go about creating these levels in
code? And what is the best way to do so?

I've currently come up with
1 : Have each level to be a class, and load up the proper level
depending on player progress.
2 : Store the level information in a file or in XML, and load it up
depending on player progress.

Both of these solutions do not seem to be ideal, and it seems there
could be a better way to develop this sort of system.

What are your thoughts on a situation such as this?

If this would be better suited in Android Developers, I can move the
topic there, but it seems to be a more basic aspect for the platform.

Thank you for any insight you may offer!

2. Infinite Error: I fixed "Failed to find an AVD compatible", only to get "ERROR: unknown virtual device name"

You shouldn't move the AVD files around.

What's the SDK Target setting for your project? You can find out by
bringing up the Properties dialog box and select Android.

Since you created a target 2 AVD, you should set the SDK Target for
your project to "Android 1.5".

Also double check the Target setting in the Run Configurations dialog
