 Hi all,
    When I tried to copy a file in my PC to the Android Emulator, I
used the command
"C:\Documents and Settings\Alioth>adb push D:\Data\Android\1.jpg \data
But the it didn't work and the error message was
"failed to copy 'D:\Android\1.jpg' to '\data\data\': Read-only file
I don't know what to do, can anyone help me ?

Error on adb push

1. Android is Linux-based, so your path separator should be / instead of
\ in the final parameter on your adb push command.

2. You may not be able to push files to /data/data on the emulator. You
definitely cannot on a device. Your files do not belong there. Put them
in /data/data/, where is the
Java package associated with your Android application.

1. Bad sign: Single Content apps are coming to Android

If only the Market would segregate out that kind of episodic media content
it would be a big boon for the market at large.  Anything that gets people
in the mindset of using their money in the Market will likely have a splash
effect across other products.

2. Correct .config for the ADP1

I've tried the following:
1) Pull /proc/config.gz from the phone.  Enable rfkill in make
2) make msm_defconfig

Doing either of these results in a kernel that during boot where the
static android logo turns into a flashing android, just restarts
continuously.  Therefore, I can't use adb to figure out what is going

What have others been doing to get the kernel to compile properly?
