chmod unexpected permission error when logged into an actual device

 I have the same frustration. This is pretty bad. It is after all, my device.
I wouldn't be happy if I got a computer from Dell and they told me I
couldn't have admin access.

 Yes, there are other ways. You can drop a signed update image in
/sdcard/update.zip and have the recovery system flash it for you.

The code is here:
 http://git.source.android.com/?p=platform/recovery.git ;a=blob;f=recovery.c
(line 267).

1. Building APPS that require an online database

Any ideas would be great.

2. Blank screen displayed after downloading from Android Browser.

Hi all,

We are developing an application that requires a download of a music
file (mp3).
We are using the Browser Activity for the same.

The Browser Activity is invoked from the application and the download
url is passed to it, like:
startActivity(new Intent(Intent.ACTION_VIEW, Uri.parse(downloadurl)));

However, after downloading, on the download list page, if we press the
Back button, a blank white screen is displayed. Only after we press
the Back button a second time on this white screen, the application
screen is displayed.
This happens because the Browser Activity view is displayed before the
actual downloading starts.

This is an issue in the application flow. We need to manage the flow
in such a way that the 'Back' key press on the download list view will
take the control to the application screen instead of the white
screen.

We are unable to handle this scenario. Any suggestion will be highly
helpful.

Thanks in anticipation.
