 Question for anyone who thinks they know:

Can Android interface with USB devices, like Phidgets? I looked, but I
found nothing indicating it is possible or impossible. Has anyone done
any work in this area?

My goal here is to plug a Phidget Encoder into the Android to stream
data to an app I'm writing.

Thoughts, oh ye developers of Android?

 Not yet.  You'll need the ability for android to be a usb host, marked
as an enhancement here:

1. Compiling module on tablet Dell Streak


I was wondering whether the android kernel uses some kind of
standardized kernel versions and configurations that allow people to
add a module to an existing kernel   in, let's say a dell streak

Is it easy to get the kernel configuration and patches to compile
modules for the streak?

Do they put some kind of locking so that nobody having a jtag tool can
make the configuration changes to make the kernel read a new module?

Thanks in advanced.


2. ELF permissions

         I happened to look under /proc/<pid>maps for a particular
process and found that it has it's [stack] section with executable
privileges. Is this inherent on Android ? Is there a way to "unset"
this executable privilege ? I observed this on two to three processes.
