 Is there a way to access the MarketPlace while using the Android
Emulator?  I'd like to download something into my emulated phone.

Accessing MarketPlace Using Emulator

Not legally.

However, the "something" might be available outside of the Market,
particularly if it's a free app.

1. AudioManager request/abandon focus messages

We have an app which requests and abandons audio focus several times
over the course of its lifetime. When the process exits, these
messages appear several (30+) times in the log:

W/AudioService( 1086):   AudioFocus   audio focus client died
W/AudioService( 1086):   AudioFocus   audio focus client died
W/AudioService( 1086):   AudioFocus   audio focus client died

We are just using requestAudioFocus() and abandonAudioFocus() with a
single listener object and as far as I can tell the calls are paired
up properly. It seems from the AudioService code that a new
AudioFocusDeathHandler is created for each call, will this lead to
memory leaks or other problems or is this benign?


2. Adding native Binder service permission error when not root

What is the best way to add a new native service that uses Binder and
can get past the service_manager.cpp restrictions on what users can
add services?

I have created a new native service that is similar to the
MediaPlayer. I make the addService() calls to add the Binder service
to the system. This worked fine when the service was started as root.

I moved the new service to be started as the "media" user. Then I
receive permission errors because of the table in service_manager.cpp
where there is a check for users and allowed Binder services.

Do I have to add my service to the table or is there some other way?
