best phone to get? normal g1 vs dev

 Is there a real advantage to getting the android developer phone in
terms of doing application development? What are the pros and cons?

What about just using the phone as a normal user? Having a dev phone
would allow me to install unofficial system software and perhaps
native software, correct?

Thanks,
Brendan

1. Error during "make" , lunch 2

Hi guys,

I tried to do a "make" with the lunch 2 configuration (from build/
envsetup.sh).
I would like to have a virtual machine working on my x86 arch (ubuntu
8.0.4), but I had an error and can't find a solution!

that's what i did:

gmza...@gmzanda-desktop:~$ cd workspace/
gmza...@gmzanda-desktop:~/workspace$ . build/envsetup.sh
gmza...@gmzanda-desktop:~/workspace$ lunch 2

"PVMFStatusToString" is undefined and I can't find any implementation
in the source code!

can someone give me a clue about it?

Thanks

2. <include/> in TableRow

Hi,

I have a problem trying use <include /> within a table row. Any
android:xxxx atributes applied to the widget within the include are
ignored. Here's is a test I put together. The two buttons outside the
table layout render correctly(adjusted width and height), the one's
inside do not. Strangely, the custom TwoStateButton:xxxxx attributes
are rendered correctly in both cases.

---------- main.xml --------
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<LinearLayout xmlns:android=" http://www.***.com/ 
android"
    android:orientation="vertical"
    android:layout_width="fill_parent"
    android:layout_height="fill_parent"
    >
    <include android:id="@+id/btn1" layout="@layout/custom_button" />
    <include android:id="@+id/btn2" layout="@layout/button_type2" />
        <TableLayout
                android:layout_width="wrap_content"
                android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        >
                <TableRow>
                        <include android:id="@+id/btn3" 
layout="@layout/custom_button" />
                        <include android:id="@+id/btn4" 
layout="@layout/button_type2" />
                </TableRow>
        </TableLayout>
</LinearLayout>



------- custom_button.xml -----------
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<com.ba{*filter*}tajax.tests.TwoStateButton
        xmlns:android=" http://www.***.com/ ;
        xmlns:TwoStateButton=" http://www.***.com/ 
com.ba{*filter*}tajax.tests"
                android:layout_height="100dp"
                android:layout_width="50dp"
                TwoStateButton:onText="This is on"
        TwoStateButton:offText="Off"
        TwoStateButton:onBgId="@drawable/btn_red"
        TwoStateButton:offBgId="@drawable/btn_red"
        />

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

-------- button_type2.xml ---------
<ToggleButton
        xmlns:android=" http://www.***.com/ ;
        android:layout_height="100dp"
        android:layout_width="50dp"
/>

Can anyone shed any light on this? why will the buttons not render
correctly in the TableRow, have i missed something?

Many thanks
Simon
