 Does anyone know how to connect to the internet via a proxy server on
a g1 handset? I need to use a proxy server at school to get on the
internet on wifi.

Cheers

 I also need the exact same help, my school uses a proxy server to
access the web.

Also my home wireless doesn't need a proxy to access the web.

I know the iPhone and iPod touch can use multiple proxy settings
depending on the network it is connected to but what about the G1

How to use proxy server on the g1?

 Sounds like an opportunity for someone to write an app. The source for 
the proxy settings page is in;

/packages/apps/Settings/src/com/android/settings/ProxySelector.java

in the git repository, so couldn't someone write an app using that, add 
in some buttons to change configuration and some optional Geo-location 
to switch proxy settings automatically based one where you are and it'll 
probably be a popular app.

Or is it another piece of  functionality limited to the in-crowd who can 
get their app signed with the right certificate?

How to use proxy server on the g1?

 ello,

I've written an application which may help, it allows you to use the
browser from behind a proxy server on a WIFI network. Search for the
"ProxySetting" application on the market (its free).

At the moment Android only allows proxy information to be used when
you are connected to a GPRS/3G network, there's a bug raised about it
here: http://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=1273. The
ProxySetting application works around the problem, but unfortunately
it's still a bit limited (by Android): It does allow for using the web
browser behind a non-authenticated proxy, but apps such as Maps and
Youtube don't currently work and there's no way to add a username/
password for the proxy.

I'm sure this will be sorted out properly by the Android team, but
until then hopefully the ProxySetting app will help.

Please let me know if it works or if you have any problems (I've only
just posted it on the Market so haven't had any feedback yet).

Thanks!

 'm not sure at the moment why it only works for the browser. I'm
investigating how to get it working using gmail and the market as I've
got the same problem in my office. I'll let you know when I have some
more info.

Thanks

 ello,

I've been looking at this in a bit more detail and unfortunately it
looks like the ProxySetting app cannot be updated to allow apps like
market, youtube etc to work over a wifi proxy. I could be mistaken,
but I think the reason is that the browser checks for a configured
proxy in the database and uses that proxy if the phone is on a mobile
network, but the other apps don't do this.

The ProxySetting app updates the relevant information in the database
and then sends a notification to the browser that the phone is using a
mobile network (even though it's actually on wifi). So the browser
thinks it's on a mobile network and updates it's proxy information,
requests are then sent over wifi to the proxy.

The other apps seem to ignore the proxy settings (possibly they're not
using HTTP and the proxy settings are specific to HTTP). Even other
browsers like Steel don't seem to apply proxy settings. I think the
real fix would be for Android to be updated to allow for proxy
settings to be entered for a particular wifi network and for all the
apps to be updated to listen for network changes and update to the
correct proxy. I'm sure this will be done at some point as it's a
fairly major problem in my opinion.

Thanks

1. How to: Set up developer phone with no data plan or sim card

ok so I got this working.

The best way to bypass the sim card and access straight to the
wireless is easy.

When the phone boots and asks you for the sim card, just leave it.

2. Download Dev1 phone usb drivers from
http://code.google.com/android/intro/develop-and-debug.html#developin...

3. Attach phone and install drivers in downloaded location

4. Start>Run>cmd

5. the command prompt type cd c:\

6. type adb shell (this will let you access and push a command to the
root system of the phone)

7. A ' # ' appears.. type the fallowing appending: am start -a
android.intent.action.MAIN -n com.android.settings/.Settings
       //if you wanna know what this does.. It starts the android
setting page and forces it to the main display]

          ( source is from forum post: 
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=452316
)

8. when this is done, hit enter and go to your dev1 phone

9. The wireless setting screen should be visible

10. Set up your wireless and you are done.

I hope this post helps others wishing to use their phones without a
data plan!!

You must have the android sdk properly installed for this to work.

2. How to merge aac recognizer to Cupcake

Dear all :

        I have a question to conduct.
        The Android release 1.0 does not support aac file in the
music
        player because it doesn't implement an AAC file recognizer and
register it in
        recognizer registry to enable AAC playback .

       Currently , OpenCORE 2.0 has supported aac recognizer for
Android
       So, I try to merge the code into Cupcake version to play aac
file.

       I have added  aac recognizer code into the folder
       device/external/opencore/pvmi/recognizer/plugins/
pvaacffrecognizer

       In addition,
       I modify the makefile to add libpvaacffrecognizer \   at
       LOCAL_WHOLE_STATIC_LIBRARIES
       and
       include $(PV_TOP)//pvmi/recognizer/plugins/pvaacffrecognizer/
Android.mk

       But the music player list also can't show .aac file
       So, can anybody help me to merge aac recognizer  to play .aac
file

       Thanks

Best Regards,
Lucien
