Request for potential research areas.

 There were a lot of ideas discussed in the android-discuss group. In
particular looks for posts dated around Feb - Apr 2008 (ADC1 timeline).

Some ideas:

To send out emergency signals during disasters, and when networks are down.
To sense emergency situations and send out distress calls.
To locate and track kids.
To go green. Share rides, locate public transports etc.,
To save time. Find nearest restaurants and reserve tables etc.,
Location based contextual information. Get relevant stuff as you move around
your location.
Social Networking - discover exciting new networks in your location.
Travel - Use camera, sensor, google earth etc., and find out real geo
location infos.

Given Android capabilites like bluetooth, gps, accelerometer etc., you have
to think a bit and see how these capabilites can be applied in alleviating
real life problems.

As i said, search the android-discuss group for more ideas. Good luck.

take care,

1. working with /cache/recovery/command


I'm trying to create my own OTA update utility for Android and was
wondering if anyone knew anything about working with /cache/recovery/
command. I read through some of the source code for the recovery
system and it seems as if I add "--update_package=location:file" to
this file and reboot the phone into recovery mode, it should
automatically unpack and apply the update to the phone without user
intervention. When I try doing this myself, the phone will reboot into
recovery mode but it just sits at command prompt waiting for the user
to hit Alt+S,Alt+W etc. Does anyone know how get this to work like the
way Google pushes out OTA updates?
