 Hi, all

I am afraid that I may have given all of you disappointment.
I prepared a slightly better thing hastily.

livedroid update alpha2.

  * CD remaster ready
  * add mouse patch
  * add 32bit color patch
  * fixed GRUB menu title
  * fixed ISO label name
  * cupcake based, kernel 2.6.25

Please test it and send me some advices.

 Hi, I'm interested in your livedroid project, but I cannot very understand
your introductions.
What do you mean by saying "based on Debian lenny"? Have you port the
android base system to the kernel based on Debian?

At last, thanks for your great job!

 Hi,

Thank you for your interest in my project !

After starting as a minimal Debian system,
livedroid execute chroot to the environment of Android.
I merged the configuration of Android to kernel configuration of Debian.

If you intercept boot process of livedroid, you can use debian system.
Of course, you use the command of bootcd2disk,
livedroid can be installed on the hard drive.
That is pure debian system.
You can use apt-get and more.
If you want to make CD image form your customized hard drive,
you can do makeiso.sh command.

 Hi, all

Over 5000 people downloaded alpha2 iso file.
I was surprised at the size of the reaction very much.

livedroid update alpha3.

  * shrink image size
  * add isolinux menu
  * add ASE (but no language files, English mode only)
  * add Japanese boot mode (but not include IME)
  * add /sdcard support (tmpfs)

Please test it and send me some advices.

2. webview problems when rendering HTML and using loadData

I know that many of you know this already but I am making a post
because I spent 5 hours trying to figure out why loadData was not
working. This does not pop up easily in searches of the mailing list.

TAGS: webview background white android loadData

WebView momentContent =
                        (WebView) view.findViewById
(R.id.subscription_list_moment_webcontent);
WebSettings wsettings =
                        momentContent.getSettings();
wsettings.setJavaScriptEnabled(true);

//works great
//momentContent.loadUrl("http://www.momentarynow.com/app/public/
android/info_about.html");

//doesnt work exact same content WHY?
momentContent.loadData(
                                ResourceUtils.loadResToString(R.raw.content, 
mContext),
                                mimeType,
                                encoding);

====

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
<html>
<head>
<title>Untitled Document</title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
<style type="text/css">
<!--
.bg {
        font-size: x-small;
        background-color: #CC6600;
}
-->
</style>
</head>
<body class="bg">
foobar
</body>
</html>

unless you use the most simple html possible, like no style sheets,
backgrounds, etc, loadData seems to blow up. The only workaround I
have found is to use loadDataWithBaseURL instead


                final String mimeType = "text/html";
                final String encoding = "UTF-8";
                //render the html
                WebView momentContent =
                        (WebView) 
findViewById(R.id.subscription_list_moment_webcontent);
                WebSettings wsettings =
                        momentContent.getSettings();
                wsettings.setJavaScriptEnabled(true);
                momentContent.loadDataWithBaseURL("http://fake.com",
                                ResourceUtils.loadResToString(
                                                R.raw.content,
                                                getApplicationContext()),
                                mimeType,
                                encoding,
                                "http://fake.com");


oh now it magically works. but my forehead is a bit bruised from
hammering it against the brick wall.

I merely post to help others avoid my fate.
