 WiFi and Bluetooth emulation are not planned for the immediate future (i.e.
won't happen before 2009)
emulation at the low-level protocol level on three distinct platforms is
next to impossible.
we could implement some sort of bridging with special code path in the
system, but we're
not there yet, having other priorities (like shipping a real device :-))

in other words, chances are that you'll have a real device to test these
features on before
seeing the emulator try to (badly) support them...

 it depends exactly on what you need to do. if you perform operations that
require root permissions, this won't run on an unmodified Android phone, due
to our security model.

on the other hand, there will likely be some sort of "network service" that
should export an interface to client libraries and programs. however, I
don't know much how our wifi-related service is setup and what it provides.

 Hi Digit, i need to get power from different AP and to modify some
parameters regarding the rate that the sensor use to get the
measurment of the power. Obviously I'm searching also a wifi board
with a good support for linux ('m thinking on some Atheros chipset).
What I don't understand is if i can manage these param  with Android.
I'm also searching  if what i want to do is possible with Qtopia or
OpenMoke, my problem is that i'm totally new with these kind of
Thanks for all

1. Service manager crashing after launch

After boot when the init launches the service manager it exits quickly
and this happens a few more times which causes the system to reboot.
What could be the cause of this crash? I am running android with
2.6.28 kernel but don't have all the configs enabled as listed in the
goldfish_defconfig. Is there anything in particular it depends on? I
have left out yaffs, crypto and few other options which I feel weren't
important for android to come up.
