 Hi All,

Is there any "official" support for Samsung SGH i900 aka Omnia?

I saw patches on arm-linux-kernel mail list: [PATCH 1/2] [ARM] pxa/
sgh_i900: Basic support for the Samsung SGH-i900 (Omnia) phone

Best regards,

 Hi Ruckuus,

They don't support for SGH i900 officially.
Refer to below files.
Good luck.

Thank you for exact pointer..

BTW, I extracted my own userland from SDK 1.5 and using iPAQ 241 kernel, and
I am able to boot Android on Omnia. From first trial, It lacks of phone
functionality (and it is normal, same with me with i.MX31 last time).

One question, Is there anyone trying to debug from Android shell?

By changing haRET's default.txt

set cmdline "root=/dev/mmcblk0p1 ramdisk_size=8192 rootdelay=5 rootwait rw
init=/init lpj=loops_per_jiffy boot_delay=100 console=ttySXXX,57600n8 debug"

I assume, by doing this (and also assume that serial driver for iPAQ or
sgh-i900 is working or at least using serial for PXA3XXX also working fine),
we could get Android console.

I saw there is serial cable for Omnia, but I didn't find it yet.

Is there any kernel config to share?

I wrongly assume that haret uses my new kernel, in fact _NO_, it uses
the kernel Image in that package ("Image").

Thanks in advance,

Well, it should be OK with hpipaq214_defconfig.

2. How to build apk from multiple Eclipse projects?

Here is how I have solved this riddle; it is a compromise.

It seems pretty much impossible to implement any sort of class/
inheritance structure around the way resources are implemented for the
Android resources via Eclipse. They are tied too tightly with R. and
the special apk builder.

So I've spilt on the boundary between what classes access resources
and what classes do not (the UI classes tend to be the resource
users). Some classes that were light users of resources can be
restructured a bit to have resource info parameterized to them thereby
gaining them a home in reusable .jars.

The stuff that does not use resources can be organized into other
Eclipse Java projects with JRE System library and android.jar on the
Libraries build path.

The classes that implement the UI for a specific app are housed in a
regular Eclipse Android project with a Manifest and menus and such
It has the Projects and Libraries of the reusable classes on its build

I had really wanted to push reuse further into the UI but it is a
diminishing returns thing where copy+paste looks more attractive.

Maybe someday Google will share with us an improved way to package
Android resources within jar files.
