    Hello EV1!!

    I am currently getting into development aspects of the Android OS. I am working on creating a more lifelike Emulator image. Before I go and get all Fancy with installing Linux and tools and all that, i would like to know if my project is even feisable! ;)

    I am currently stuck on attempting to rebuild the ramdisk.img to use with the SDK. But i cannot et cpio and mkbootfs to function correctly on my Win7 machine. I am looking for someone who would be kind enough to download the attached file and peak at the Script i was trying to use and compile the .img file for me!

    Thnxs ALOT! dancedroid

    Thank you very much for the help! It looks like the only way to deal with the Qemu ramdisk image is in hex. But i need to dig into it more. and i am trying to make an emulator that anyone can use using the Android SDK. For testing, tweaking, ROM development. I have found alot of little things and reasons.

    Thanks again for all your help! I appreciate it!

    Thanks for the encouragement! I recently found a program for windows that will allow me to extract cpio! This is looking promising! But then my mainboard fried! ;( oh well, soon enough will be back on track!

    lolll, maybe try a virtual machine for win 98?... i would imagine its such a lightweight operating system it could be run with no problem... after all back in my ipod touch days i booted win98 on it, something called Bosch or whatever.
