What happened to the HOME button in cupcake

 I tried the 'unofficial' cupcake SDK and found that the hardware HOME button
doesn't bring me back to the home screen anymore. Is this a conscious UI
decision? What's the reason behind it?

Also, long-press on the HOME button doesn't bring up the task manager
anymore.

So, if I am in the browser, I have to all the way close all the pages before
I can go back to home screen?

You are talking about the emulator, right?
The official SDK runs an app called SdkSetup at boot time to correctly
setup the home button.
Seems like something is missing in your unofficial SDK then.

 This is why we want to be clear it is "unofficial," because it is not
actually a working SDK.  If you really want to play around with it, please
don't assume that any random thing you happen to experience is actually
correct. :}

 o make the Home button work in the emulator, you can do the
following:

1. Edit "development/apps/SdkSetup/Android.mk" to include the
"LOCAL_MODULE_TAGS := eng" line
2. Rebuild the system image with "mmm development/apps/SdkSetup
snod"

1. Endless scrolling in GridView

Hey guys
I am performing xml parsing in my grid view.
The xml has 10 images which are displayed in 4 rows and the last row
having 1 image.
I want when the user scrolls down and when the scroll reaches bottom i
should be able to parse more images.
So that it goes like an endless grid view whenever the scroll reaches
bottom more images are loaded.

Should i make a custom gridView or custom ImageAdapter??
