 Any idea why I get permission denied when I run su in adb shell? I've
seen multiple posts here claiming all you have to do is run su, but it
never works for me. Why?

 You can't get root on a regular G1.

1. Talking to service Daemons

So I have a daemon running and I can talk to it/use it just fine from
command line. When I try and make calls from JNI to the daemon it's
like I'm talking to the code, but not the code the daemon is talking
to. That's kind of confusing....

The daemon works with an SDIO card and is how we route calls to the
device. Using command line, I ask the daemon for the device and all is
well, the daemon can find it and return information. When making the
calls from JNI the daemon says the device is not there. I can see all
the calls made in logcat. But there is a night and day difference
between JNI and command line.

Currently the daemon is being started by hand in the Alt-F1 console
window after android has loaded.

Is there something that I am missing between calls made from JNI to a
daemon service and calls made from command line to a daemon service?
It almost seems like I'm talking to two different instances of the
code base.


2. Building your own UI library like the embeddable Google Maps library

Sorry, we don't currently support third party shared libraries.  If you are
creating your own device and want to include a custom library on it, you can
post to android-porting (or best search there, this has already been
discussed a number of times).
