SD card stuck in read-only on non-rooted non-dev phone.

Hope somebody here can help me.

My sd-card is mounted readonly in my G1.
It's a non-rooted and non-dev phone (default t-mobile G1).
Since I don't have root / su rights on the phone I can't remount my sd-
card in rw.
I've tried rebooting, taking the sdcard out of the phone but neither
idea works.
When I reinsert my sd-card I and run mount from the terminal emulator
I can see it as being mounted rw.
When I run the mount command again a few seconds later, it is mounted

Anyone any idea what can be done to get my phone back to being fully
useable again?

1. virtual keyboard & EditText


I had an EditText that was working perfectly on the emulator.
Now that I am doing test with the htc magic (which has a virtual
keyboard) is giving me some problems:

this is the code that I use:

myEditText.setOnKeyListener(new View.OnKeyListener()
  public boolean onKey(View arg0, int arg1, KeyEvent arg2)
         do something...


The problem is that the inner function onKey() is only called() AFTER
the virtual keyboard is hidden, and for some reasons, I want to know
this as soon as possible...

does anybody knows how can I sort this out?


2. Why the Android docs are inconsistent?

I have looking for something and found these inconsistencies in the
online documentation

This is a snippet from FAQ section
        NotificationManager nm = (NotificationManager)

Now when I try to find the 'notifyWithText' api, I could not find it.

Another example is IntentReciever. I just want to know is this class
exists? As I found code in this forum itself using IntentReciever, but
I cant find this class in the doc.

And why standard intents like action
android:name="android.provider.Telephony.SMS_RECEIVED are not
