Market "view" option disappears

 Surely I'm not the only person this is happening to... after far too
long I finally discovered that there was a "Select View" in the Market
app menu that lets you see just paid apps. But the really weird thing
is that, on my phone at least, this option appears and vanishes like
the wind. Right now, for instance, it's not there and hasn't been for
two days, and the only way to see ANY priced apps/games is to scroll

Someone please tell me I'm not the only person seeing this, and
someone else please tell me it's being worked on.  ;)

Well, I can tell you that I've *never* seen that menu, and I look from
time to time. I can see priced apps, but I haven't yet quite figured out
which of the Market activities is supposed to have this menu.

And now it shows up on my G1.

I'll keep an eye on it and see if it sticks around.

 Without it, how is anyone supposed to even FIND any of the paid apps?
Is everyone just scrolling forever or what? Seems like not a lot to
ask that the marketplace at least be structured so that users can even
FIND paid apps amid all the free ones. It's a wonder we're getting any
sales at all.

It seems to be gone from my Marketplace app now. Only clue I can give
is that I got my last update over the web, not over the phone...
possibly a different copy of the app?

 I got my update FW 1.1 yesterday and noticed you can select "change 
view" when in a sub view.  I believe its context sensitive.  Once users 
find it, it will help them manage what they want to see easily.  The 
only problem is when I select paid apps there are none  :-(

 And now my view option is back. Hooray.

2. Questions of writing data to gsm modem in vchanneld.c in freerunner froyo


Maybe there is misunderstanding for me while reading the code
freerunner/froyo/hardware/ril/vchanneld.c when I port it to my current

static int vch_write_data(struct virtual_channel *vch, char *ptr, int
        int tmp;
        struct phy_device *phy = vch->phy;
        tmp = (len > phy->max_length) ? phy->max_length : len;

        while (len > 0) {
                gsm0710_write(vch, GSM0710_DATA, ptr,
tmp); // ???????????????????????
                ptr += tmp;
                len -= tmp;

        return len;

I am worried the above line tagged with "???..." by me.
In my understanding, the code in the "while" segment is trying to
divide the data to fit the max length requirement. e.g. In freerunner
froyo the "phy->max_length" is set to 128. So if the data length is
greater than 128, it will try to send 128 length of data first and
then the problem seems to appear. It still try to send the 128 length
of data even it is not achieve to the length. And look at the inside
of "gsm0710_write()" and "compute_frame_mux_basic()" this is called by

static int compute_frame_mux_basic(struct virtual_channel *vch, int
                                   char *src, int len, char *dst)
        int hsize, size;
        int channel = vch->channel;

        dst[0] = (char)GSM0710_FRAME_FLAG;
        dst[1] = (char)((channel << 2) | 0x03);
        dst[2] = (char)type;
        hsize = size = 4;

        if (len <= 127) {
                dst[3] = (char)((len << 1) | 0x01);
        } else {
                dst[3] = (char)(len << 1);
                dst[4] = (char)(len >> 7);

        if (len > 0) {
                memcpy(dst + size, src,
len); // ???????????????????????????????????
                size += len;

        dst[size++] = (char)compute_crc((unsigned char *)(dst + 1),
hsize - 1);
        dst[size++] = (char)GSM0710_FRAME_FLAG;

        return size;

Since the last argument 'len' is not accurate and can be greater than
it should be. Is there a chance that it is over the boundary of the
'src', which might results in unexpected consequence?

I also would like to know why the max_length is set to 128 rather than
127 in the freerunner froyo because I saw 127 is the boundary of the
modem to splite the data.

However, my understanding may be wrong. Could anyone correct me or
help me to figure it out?
(If I post to a wrong place, please tell me.)
