    flash_image on devices with mtd, device specific methods on others (ex. dd to an internal emmc partition) I think that info can be found in the devices.js in koush's rommanagermanifest repo on github
    my roms & kernels (based on iho)

    it in not possible. when you shut down the phone, all apps and tasks are killed. and since the phone is not on and there is no power to it, there is no way to tell it to keep a certain app going.
    Guess whos coming back!

    Now I'm wondering how a car works...... You turn it off and you can turn it on with the click of a button, you can close and open doors, even the trunk.

    The same way a car radio works. It has a 12volt keep alive connection.

    thanks
    GPL issues with people not handing it out notwithstanding, it's always nice to be able to get source code.
    keep the wife happy with my dev time:

    the THANKS button is quite acceptable if you're as stingy as me, too.

    Is there a GPL issue if you don't hand out app source code? I was under the impression that GPL only applied to kernels... I could be wrong though... I'm still a noob in many ways.

    gpl applies to anything licensed under the gpl. the linux kernel is gpl. most of android is apahe2 licensed.

    i din't see a license when i looked at your code so i was going to ask you about that.

    i personally prefer a 2-clause bsd license and use it for all my original code (so.. i don't use it often)

    Wait so what am I supposed to do to my code? Add something saying I own it and license people to use it to all the code?

    So when you open the app it says you aren't supported? Or you can't download it?

    Were you answering this question below or just making a suggestion about how to support more devices? Because i was asking about licensing.

    Maybe I screwed something up. Can you use flash_image to flash a recovery?

    That's the culprit. The next update will fix that and remove that check and place a warning instead, so you should be able to use the next update. Thanks for pointing that out sammyzzzzzzz.

    Update will show up in a few hours that installs flash_image on phones that don't have it but warns users that don't have it that the app may not work. Latest flash_image by CM is 25 KB as opposed to 12 KB one we use in our roms... hmmm.

    Anyway, update out.
