Loading Modules into Android phones

 Hi All,

I am wondering whether it is possible to load a module into an Android
phone.

Is Module Loading option disabled for all phones by default?

It is disabled for emulator, ADP1 but I have not checked with phones
bought from telcos etc?

Anyone has any experience regarding this?

Thanks and Regards,
Perumal

 In my opinion, you should be able to recompile the kernel with module
support enabled, and then you will be able to load a module into
android. There doesn't seem to be a reason why the kernel cannot
support modules, though it's likely that some existing drivers might
not work as modules themselves.

 Yes,

But in order for me to use the new compiled kernel the OS have to be
unlocked like in Developer phones or in emulator. How do load modules
into those locked phones (like those bought from telcos)?

 I can't think of a way to load a module into a kernel that doesn't
support it... are there userspace versions of these drivers?

I am seeing the exception in 'adb logcat'.  But I don't know if it is

Can you please give me any idea how to troubleshoot this exception?

Thank you.

2. Problems with getView() for a custom list adapter

BTW, instead of using imageview + textview, you should use the
compound drawable feature of textview. That will save you one view per
row.
