waze

Waze is a nice software... client is even GPLed. Unfortunately, it is of thin-client kind, so all the magic is really done on server.

But... you know... mapping czech republic again for
waze after we mapped it for openstreetmap is kind of lame. Could you
maybe just use openstreetmap data? Pretty please?

Fighting with Androids...

(sorry, I'm on very slow connection, so I duplicated previous entry by mistake).

So my JF1.43 installation periodically
wanted to update from google, downloading the update file then erasing
it because of signature mismatch. I now updated to JF1.51... which
also downloaded update from google, but at least it asks me what it
should do with it (on each boot)... I guess confirming the update
would result in very non-working device :-(, and just hope I'll not
hit that by accident.

I'm now trying to update CM5 ROM, but the process is more tricky than
I thought.

I'd like to get NavDroyd to work, but that seems to need android1.6; I
actually hate new android versions, because they are slower than
android1.5, but....

Aha, so NavDroyd is no-no -- it is actually $6 application, thus unavailable to me.

Hmm, CM5 actually seems to have tethering build-in. Good. But it does
not seem to use different config than android-wifi-tether...? And the ROM is also very slow on G1. Back to JF1.51.

Is there some android-1.5 based ROM -- that is "reasonably fast rom" -- that does not try to auto-update?
