Encryption, Remote Admin, Framework, 2.0...

 Some questions... Android currently seems to have a well-designed
security framework (?) which limit what apps can or cannot do, which
is good considering the improved connectivity, and the vast personal
and business information storable on today's mobile phones.

On the other hand, (IMHO) there seem to be something missing at the
moment. For example:

- File/Filesystem encryption for both onboard flash and external
- Remote administration (setup, backup, wipe; centrally-managed and/or
individually managed and/or mobile network managed)
- Wipe user data upon ? failed unlock attempts

My question is, is the Android system as a whole capabable to
accomodate these functions? If it's not currently supported. Is there
any plan to advance the development at these fronts, so they'll be
available, or can be implemented, say in the 2.0 release?

 to make it short:

all of this should be possible with more or less work. Porting existing
tools should be the fastest way to get convenient results. Encrypting
the whole filesystem will be a lot of work, in my opinion.

Hi all,
I want to modify init.rc to make one of notification service in my app

init.rc requires root access. So If I want to achieve this, is there
anyway to do it? Thanks.

2. Port Bionic to a new CPU

Hi, everybody!

I'm a newbee of android development~ Recently, I'm involved in a
project of porting android to a new CPU which uses RISC. And my task
is the bionic part.

Now I'm still puzzled by which files are involved in the arch-related
part. I'm planning to follow the arm way to accomplish the task.
Tranlate all .S and .h files in the Arch-arm or Arm directories. I
don't know whether it will works...

So, would someone who has similar experiences provide me some guide,
like useful links or key words.

Thank you!
