 I've been trying to find a reference and/or example page
explaining how to write a png image file from res/drawable
to the background as wallpaper for about the last five days
now ... I give up...time to ask for help finding either or
both of the above....  I've seen all kinds of references to
unrelated sties, but I just can't find the right page.

Can someone please point me in the right direction?

Thanks,

 You mean wallpaper for phone home screen?

Ok, here's a chance for me to possibly clear up my own confusion.
I've
been under the impressions that A) the home screen is THE screen
that you get when you press the HOME button, and that the rest are
other screens, and B) that ALL of the phone's screens are Home
screens.......

I'm talking about wallpaper that you load on the backgrounds of the
seven screens.

I'm working on a photography app, and I want the user to be able,
if they want to do so, to load any of my photos (which, before the
app is built, are in res/drawable) on their Home screen/screens.

I've been looking every day until my eyes start screaming, and after
that, I've kept looking until my eyes go totally blurry for the rest
of
the day (and beyond, sometimes) for just under a week, and have
gotten lots and lots of unrelated pages, but nothing relevant so far.

 I am guessing this is what u want,

WallpaperManager manager = WallpaperManager.getInstance(this);
try {
manager.setResource(R.drawable.wallpaper);
 } catch (IOException e) {
e.printStackTrace();
}

U need to add SET_WALLPAPER permissions in ur manifest file.

Hope this helps.

Looks like exactly what I need.  Thanks!   I also have something
far more likely to get better search results (for a reference page),
too---so thanks for that, as well!

1. Android INIT not loading firmware

Android replaces udev and hotplug with its own substitute helper
program(s). While having a look at /system/core/init/devices.c I see
that it even has support for loading firmware (like in binary blobs
for wifi drivers), thus I deduct that init handles these calls.

Now here's the problem, when I run "request_firmware" from my kernel
android init doesn't pick up the uevent (and obviously doesn't copy
the firmware to the right /sys file).
Even setting it as the firmware helper in the kernel (which normally
goes to hotplug) only results in the system{*filter*} on bootup.

So, all ye Android platform porters, what is the elegant Android way
of running an "insmod" that needs firmware?

2. How to manage Delay in InputStream ?

Hi

I do a POST on a URL on the web.  I get back an InputStream.

Even using a regular web browser this response comes back with a delay
(2-5 sec).

In Java, when I finished my post, close OutputStream , and read the
response, as nothing as arrived yet : I get nothing and my app thinks
the InputStream is finished, and I exit my method.

How can I wait for something to come from an InputStream ?

Thanks
