 We are using Froyo in one of our product.We need to implement
firmware upgrade feature in it. We need to provide the feature to
upgrade kernel as well as the OS. Can we use the to do
this. Do we have to include fastboot command in it to upgrade kernel?
Can we do fastboot with out connecting the device to PC through USB?
Our requirement is downloading the firmware to SD card  from PC, put
the SD card in the system and upgrade the firmware.

We dont have manual harware keys  in the product. Is it possible to
enter in to fast boot mode using installPackage API of Recovery

Can we map the back button and some necessary mandatory keys  to the
softkey, If so please let me know the procedure for it?

Can we also boot with safe start mode with out hard keys.

Please clarify all these doubts and help me out to resolve the issues
Thanks and Regards

1. Testing Licensing Service


I just implemented the Android Market Licensing Service. I did every
thing as documented and used the StrictPolicy from the samples. I
already published it and it works. People who buyed the app can use
it. But here is my problem. None of my test accounts gets the static
answer i configured from the server. Only my puplisher account works.
According to the logs no error occurs with test accounts. Has anybody
an idea what I could have missed?
