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,

 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. Preference change notifying the main Activity

I think I've missed something in how Android is supposed to work!
I have the main Activity with a menu option that opens the preferences
screen. What I need is a way for any changes that were made to be
communicated back to the main Activity as soon as the preference is
activated. At the moment the only way I could get it working is by
using the intent data that gets sent back when the prefs activity
closes but this isn't really enough. The reason why it needs to be
instantaneous is that one of the preferences is a 'Clear cache'
button, so I would like the data to be deleted when the user requests
it and no later!
