 Could an alternate home screen app replace the assets such as s
"menu_item_background_pressed.9.png" or
"list_selector_background_focus.9.png", both found in  frameworks/base/
core/res/res/drawable in the open source project?  I have altered
those by changing out the assets and recompiling.

But can I make it so the installation of the home screen will open up
framework-res.apk, replace the asset, then re-package framework-
res.apk?  I realize this would then have broad ramifications, but just
wondering if it could be done.  thanks.

Also wondering if a alt home screen app, can replace icons of core
apps, such as Contacts, etc. thanks

1. Problem finding a contact when ID is known

You don't need to create it.  It is column on the Contacts table. There is
also a conenience method on Contacts that will retrieve it for you.

Please tell me, though, how do you create a lookup key?  Can you give
or point me to a good example?

2. Using iptables in android

I just wanted to use iptables in android

So I enable NETFILTER in kernel, and build the kernel.

But when I typed "iptables -L" in adb shell.
It always promoted:

iptables v1.3.7: can't initialize iptables table `filter': iptables
who? (do you
 need to insmod?)
Perhaps iptables or your kernel needs to be upgraded.

Does anyone know what the problem
