 This doesn't seem to be a kernel question. I guess that
android-porting might be a closer hit for what you're trying to do,
though in general it seems to be a good bit outside of the core
android realm.

I'm sure that someone there will comment on whether the root partition
is appropriate or whether the system partition would make more sense.

Finally, when you post on a more appropriate list, be sure to include
a relevant sample of the kind of error you're seeing. Without that
there's little chance that anyone will be able to help.

1. Are there any ways that allows a developer to leave a reply to the comments in the market?


I have a free app that has 64% of ratings at 5 starts, but still has 9% of
ratings at only 1 start, some of them even said that my app is an "useless
garbage", so I think maybe I need to leave a reply to those users to explain
something or answer their questions. So are there any ways that we could do
such thing?

Thanks a lot



2. signing bootloader/kernel using the openssl command

Hi All,

In the file "build/target/product/security/README", it is mentioned as

signing using the openssl commandline (for boot/system images)

1. convert pk8 format key to pem format
   % openssl pkcs8 -inform DER -nocrypt -in testkey.pk8 -out

2. create a signature using the pem format key
   % openssl dgst -binary -sha1 -sign testkey.pem FILE > FILE.sig

1. Can this procedure be used to sign bootloader/kernel i.e Can I
provide boot.img/system.img as the input files for step 2?

2. If answer to previous question is yes, is there additional
procedure to take care for building bootloader/kernel?

3. Is there any detailed documentation on this?

PS: This is posted in android-security-discuss group as well; Posting
this query in android-kernel group for better visibility.
