Now, we have a realtivly stable system. Here are some items on my to do list:
1. enable vold to support external stroage by using fuzzy matching
2.In Android, by default, mkdir set the new directory permission to 0700. When install an new apk from web ui, the download provider tries to create a new directory called download in /sdcard. On G1 phone, the external storage is using vfat partition. And it does not enforce permission. So we can download and install the apk without any problem. But with android-x86, the external storage can use either ext2, ext3 or vfat, with the unix paritions, the permission will be enforced. So the apk install will fail. I may need to add new code the fix the permission.
3. hardware cursor, this item in my to do list for a very long time already.
