Typical T-Mobile Service Interaction Needs Log Analysis

 Folks,

 I have a new G1 and it's started rebooting and bombing out of Chrome.
In fact, I can't load slashdot without it rebooting. So I attempted to
jail break it so that I can read the android log, but the current
recipe no longer works.

 So I'm stuck calling T-Mobile who start with the "newbie" questions,
then on to a technical service rep. The service rep then wants me to
remove ALL applications from the phone and try again. A totally
unacceptable
service interaction. That tech can't read the log to see what
happened,
if I got to a store they can't read the log and I can't read the log.
T-Mobile
does not support the applications, don't know which may cause problems
and thus will always be very paranoid about them.

 This is going to waste a LOT of time, money and customer good will.

 A great solution to this is an over the air log collector and
analyzer that
points to problems. It will need to make the standard judgment of is
the problem Hardware, OS, Android or the applications.

 Is anything like this in the works?

2. Wifi port issue (all works except the backend)

hey, am having a small problem with porting wifi to a my device.

This is my config:

wifi.c (in libhardware_legacy)
    static const char IFACE_DIR[]           = "/data/misc/wifi/
wpa_supplicant";
    static const char SUPP_CONFIG_TEMPLATE[]= "/system/etc/wifi/
wpa_supplicant.conf";
    static const char SUPP_CONFIG_FILE[]    = "/data/misc/wifi/
wpa_supplicant.conf";


wpa_supplicant.conf
    update_config=1
    ctrl_interface=DIR=/data/misc/wifi/wpa_supplicant


init.rc
    mkdir /data/misc/wifi 0770 wifi wifi
    chmod 0770 /data/misc/wifi
    chmod 0660 /data/misc/wifi/wpa_supplicant.conf
    chown wifi wifi /data/misc/wifi/wpa_supplicant.conf

    mkdir /system/etc/wifi 0770 wifi wifi
    chmod 0770 /system/etc/wifi
    chmod 0660 /system/etc/wifi/wpa_supplicant.conf
    chown wifi wifi /system/etc/wifi/wpa_supplicant.conf

    # wpa_supplicant socket (unix socket mode)
    mkdir /data/misc/wifi/wpa_supplicant 0771 wifi wifi
    chmod 0771 /data/misc/wifi/wpa_supplicant
    chown wifi wifi /data/misc/wifi/wpa_supplicant

    service wpa_supplicant /system/bin/wpa_supplicant -dd -Dwext -
ieth0 -c /system/etc/wifi/wpa_supplicant.conf
    group system wifi inet
    disabled
    oneshot

Notes:

- Wifi driver/module loads properly (wifi.c, dmesg, iwconfig say so)
- Logcat reports:
    WifiHW: Unable to open connection to supplicant on "eth0": No such
file or directory (~ 4 times then unloads wifi)
- Manually loading the driver/module and
    > running wpa_supplicant (as the service above) gives not errors &
proper logcat
        although it does make this dmesg entry:
            <4>[735, wpa_supplicant] [ 1479.081526] Enter
wl_control_wl_start
            <4>[735, wpa_supplicant] [ 1479.081567] Exited
wl_control_wl_start

    > running 'wpa_cli -p /data/misc/wifi/wpa_supplicant' gives
        Selected interface 'eth0'
        Could not connect to wpa_supplicant - re-trying
    and forever remains this way

    > running 'iwlist scan' works and shows wi-fi networks

My guess would be that my permissions are wrong, but i have been
double checking with 'ls -l' and they seem ok.
The wpa_supplimentary socket 'eth0' does get created so it exists.
My guess would be that the android wifi backend runs as a specific
user other than wifi!?
