DevPhone1 SDK compatibility

 Hi All,

I've found again my DevPhone1 (aka G1) on a shelf and though that this
time I should really give it a try and create an app for it. But I've
really lost touch with the Android world and now I don't know where to
start really.

There have been many SDK releases lately for many new and better
devices. Which one of these can I use with G1? What is the most recent
one which can be used on that hardware (although with reduced
performance) but which will enable development for rather modern
Android releases as well.

The firmware update received today, while recharging the phone, is
1.6. Can I go higher with some R&D build?

Thanks in advance for your guidance,
Lucian

DevPhone1 SDK compatibility

 I have a dev phone 2 with 1.6. My boss has a moto droid with 2.1 (I
ASSUMED buying a google dev phone would have the latest rev, but
evidently not). You can definitely develop an app for it, just select
os revision 1.6 in the new->project->android project dialog.
Evidently, the bluetooth is still iffy in 1.6.... there is a thing
called 'backport' and another thing called 'reflection' that lets you
compile the 2.1 bluetooth stuff to run on 1.6?

 Thanks BobG,

I'll look into these backport/reflection things.

Best regards,

2. AlertDialog.getListView() missing in 1.1r1 sdk

Hello,

Searching for a way to manipulate the list view of AlertDialog, I come
across the AlertDialog source code(1).
To my surprise, there is a getListView() method defined since mid
december 2008(2), but there is no such method in the 1.1r1 doc or in
the provided sdk.

Is there a reason that the method is not present in the sdk ?

Thanks for the answer.
