You must have the official GV app installed and set up first for the button to show up on Sipdroid.

Re: Yahoo Video chat on Froyo

Downloaded it from the market and tested it. Worked fine for me. Not the best quality in the world, but perfectly usable.

Re: Android 2.3 Gingerbread rumors and facts

Maybe it's time to change the title of the thread to "Android 2.3 Gingerbread rumors and facts" I'm hoping for some better driver format in Honeycomb, and more optimized garbage collection, but I'm not holding my breath. Honeycomb, I think (hope), is where Google will come through with the goods. No...

Google wifi location files?

I was just wondering which files are needed to get wifi location working and where they need to be installed. I've been looking around, but I haven't found any reference to it yet. Thanks.

From what I've read so far it's only some bug fixes. So it's unlikely.

Re: Accounts & Sync only offering exchange account

You'll need to have Google apps to be able to sync with Google. If you install the market, you'll get Google syncing along with it.

Market is working great now! No FCs at all. The best thing to do is remove all the older Vendor.apk, reboot, then add the n...

Re: Froyo firmware 2.0.54 released, report bugs here

Updated OTA and reset, easy as pie and everything seems to be working great so far. Not seeing any of the problems mentioned above. Wifi music and video streaming is fine smb and upnp (from tversity).

Now to figure out how to get the market back on this thing.

Re: Android Market Not Showing All Apps?

There's also a file which tells the market what it can show on which device. I think you have to be rooted to edit it. Can't remember the details, but I'm sure a few quick Google searches will get you the details if you're interested.

Re: Protective Case

Sent a message to the otterbox twitter account asking about archos cases.
Here's their reply:
"No current plans, but am happy to pass yr suggestion along to our development Otters!"

They make some really nice cases so maybe if we can drum up enough interest they'll change their plans.

Re: Market cannot find some Applications

I've found that a lot of the apps which won't show up in the market either won't install or won't run when I get the .apk files. Ex. vplayer alpha and google earth

Re: Printing via WiFi or bluetooth?

There are a few apps which let android devices print. I've used the free HP photo print app with my wifi printer, but that only prints pictures. PrinterShare will let you print all kinds of files and it is $5, but you don't need to use the android market to get it. I haven't tried it on my A70 becau...
