 Hi Folks:

A user of my app has reported the following:

Phone: HTC Desire HD with Android 2.2 with lots of room on the card.
Android version 2.2
Baseband version: 12.28b.60.140eU_26.03.02.26_M
Kernal version
ht-ker...@and18-2 #1
Tue Oct 26 15:58:17 CST 2010
Build number: 1.35.762.2 CL277020 release-keys
Software number: 1.35.762.2
Browser version: WebKit 3.1

My App is set up to be installed to the SD Card if possible via my use
of the "preferExternal" setting in the manifest file and is installed
on the SD card for many of my users. However this is the second time
that someone with the HTC Desire has reported that they cannot get my
app to be installed or moved to the SD Card.

Can anyone shed some light on what might be happening here?

 Our users reporting same problems, same devices: HTC Desire, HTC Legend
There can be some bug or restriction with HTC devices that blocks apps to 
moving to SD card.
Did your app use Google C2DM service, for example? 
Did your app contains some broadcast receivers or services?

1. ADC2 Dev phones at Google events

Hi there,

Many thanks for announcing ADC2 !!! :-)

I saw in the adc page


In addition, attendees of selected developer events will be provided
with devices intended for use in developing submissions for ADC 2.


I think a lot of people got one today, which is great. But I'm
wondering how to go about obtaining a dev phone for ADC2 if we can't
get to one of these events. I'd like to go to Google I/O but I'm in
Sydney, Australia and last years event was booked out the day it was

Anyway it would be nice to know some more details about the ADC2 dev
phone and in general about what will be suggested/supported phones/
sdk's etc for ADC2 given the many phones coming onto the market.


2. Revenue Splitting in Android Market

Hello Everyone,

I would like to be able to share revenues with an artist that I am
working with so it would be nice if Android Market allowed revenue
splitting.  For example, suppose a developer has agreed to 70% of any
revenue and an artist 30%, from an administrative standpoint, it would
be much easier to split revenue at the point of sale rather than have
to pay partners periodically.  I don't think it would be too difficult
for Google to add such functionality to the market and may make the
Android app market more attractive to small teams.

I am just wondering if anyone else sees value in adding such a feature
to the market.
