Hey all,

Was able to get UIC-Wireless working on Android 1.6 (G1), 2.0.1 (Droid), and 2.1 (Nexus One and Droid). I will be posting up some detailed guides soon. It was a pretty long and confusing battle so hopefully I will remember how I got everything done. Note that if you want UIC-Wireless working you will need to root your phone so that you can access the wpa_supplicant.conf file thats located in the /data/misc/wifi folder. Without root, android doesn’t give you access to that folder.

The next SIG-Droid meeting will be Friday January 29, 2010 at 5:00 PM in the normal meeting place (CS Lounge next to the ACM Office). In the previous meeting we went over setting up the Android SDK to work with Eclipse. We also set up a virtual device. For the next meeting, we will be continuing our Android 101 talks and be getting into actual development of an Android application. We will start of with Activities and try and get into Intents if time permits.

For those of you interested in participating in the Android Hackathon, we will be getting together after the meeting to talk about possible projects for the event. If you have no experience with Android but are still interested then stick around because we are going to need skills other than just programming. Here is some information on the programming event:

Hackathon guidelines:

  1. Application will be developed for Android platform
  2. Teams can consist of any number of participants
  3. Development can start early, but Application should NOT be available publicly before the start of the hackathon
  4. Optional eco-challenge: anything related to solar, wind, wave, bio-fuels, recycling, green movement social apps, global warming (think Google maps), science tools and many many other ideas
  5. At the end of hackathon each team will present in 15-30 minutes:
  • functioning application
  • brief business plan
  • technical solutions
  • team members introduction
  • explanation how the application fits into the competition’s categories

If you have any questions don’t hesitate to send me an e-mail at trabcz2 (at) uic (dot) edu
