 Everyone please forgive me, as i know absolutley nothing about
programming, all i know is just a little tid-bits in the hardware and
graphics areas. I would like to port the Android 1.5 OS to my Nokia
N810. My main concern is performance, and using the hardware, things
like wifi(must-have), GPS, Audio(must-have), Touchscreen(must-have),
Bluetooth, and the keyboard. A Step-By-Step would be really nice, but
as i understand, there are MANY steps and processes to getting the OS
successfully running on any device. Im not sure where i would find the
drivers for all those things, but this would be my first project to do
programming of anykind, and i think it would be a great
accomplishment. Any help is very much appreciated, thanks for your

1. Problems Building Android Source Code with Eclipse

I recommend you to use make command for compilation ....

Hi, I have some problems building/compiling the Android Source

I followed the instructions of
to download and make the project source with NO errors.

But when I use Eclipse to build the Android Project Source, it reports
me with a lot of errors: 272325 errors and 6197warnings !!!!  For

_aload cannot be resolved       CodeGen.java    /mydroid/external/
java12/com/vladium/jcd/compiler line 34 Java Problem

$assert cannot be resolved      AppRunner.java  /mydroid/external/
java12/com/vladium/emma/rt      line 81 Java Problem

I have installed Java1.5.0_22 correctly. I work under Ubuntu 10.04

Maybe, it will be an eclipse configuration error...

Can anyone save me?
Many thanks.


2. CheckBox image alignment issue

Here is a CheckBox (with no text) defined (within a LinearLayout with
weightSum=100) as follows:

<CheckBox android:layout_width="wrap_content"
        android:layout_gravity="center" android:layout_weight="25"

Unfortunately, the button appears to the left (as opposed to the
center) of its LinearLayout box.

Setting android:gravity doesn't make a difference, nor anything else I
could think of. It seems the CheckBox is filling the available width
and left-aligning the button image.

I assume this is something to do with the fact that CheckBox-es
usually have text to the right of the image?

Here is a workaround:

        android:layout_weight="25" android:layout_gravity="center">
                android:layout_gravity="center" android:padding="5dp"

Is there a nicer workaround?
