 You can use ANY Kernel version to get Android up and running, but
you'd have to bring in all the Android-specific code for the Kernel
into it first..the problem is that Cupcake (Android 1.5) was based on
2.6.27, Donut was 2.6.29 and Eclair is 2.6.29/32 and FroYo is 2.6.32..

So you'd have to go back to the 2.6.27 tree, figure out what are the
Android-specific changes and then port those changes back to 2.6.18,
not a simple feat by any stretch of the imagination.

You'd be MUCH better served to use one of the Kernels that Android
already has support for and then bring in your BSP into that tree..

1. Visual Guide for Android Widgets

I am looking for a visual guide for the Android widget set.  I have
downloaded the SDK in which there is a file of 122 html files
describing the widgets.  I am wondering if anyone has compiled visuals
for all of the widgets?  I have only found a very limited amount of of
visuals, which were found on the droid draw site.  If anyone knows of
other sites or has this resource available to share I would really
appreciate it!
