 hi all,
I can find that build.prop in the direction product/generic/system/
build, and there are some items like ro.build.id=TC3 etc. I want to
add my modification here but i see there is a note says
"#autogenerated by buildinfo.sh". So I wonder where can I modify the
string ro.kernel.android.gps refer to ?

 "ro" stands for read-only. Those can't be modified.

1. How to solve these issues?

1. I am using a Broadcast Receiver which acquires a static WakeLock,
then immediately starts an activity which starts a media player
instance inside its onCreate, at the last line of OnCreate i have
released the static wakelock which i had acquired in the
BroadCastReceiver. Everything seems to work fine, except for the fact
that the screen does wakeup but is locked and has to be manually
unlocked before the user can see my activity, though the media player
starts playing normally before itself. I have set
still the screen has to be manually unlocked before the user can see
the activity.
Any workaround?

2. I have used an EditText inside a tablelayout, tablerow and have set
the android:height and width to wrap_content, but still when i type on
the softkeypad it exceeds the bounds of the EditText Box and overflows
the screen too. have tried various properties on the EditText but none
of them seems to work.

3. I have an Activity a ListView Activity which populates the List
from a db. When the user clicks on an item in a list, i take him to a
new Activity from where he can also delete the item he selected. The
problem is that the Parent Activity's ListView is not refreshed and
continues showing redundant content, when i have finished the child
activity. I have tried making the cursor as static and calling
cursor.requery() from my child activity before i finish it, but it
doesnt seem to fix the issue.

4. I have used an Activity say activityA which sets up alarm using
AlarmManager.set to a Receiver say RecA.  If i want to cancel this
alarm later from an Activity say ActivityB how do i do so?

Somone please respond to the above issues soon. I have been trying a
few workaounds since past few days, but am not able to fix these

Thanks in advance. :)


2. Best practice for sharing a SQLiteCursor from one Activity to another?

I remember there is an interface named CrossProcessCursor that
implements Cursor.
Specify this interface in your aidl interface method.
