Root Am I not familiar enough with how this works or is there no reason this should not work?

    Can someone who coded less than 10 years ago and who knows java please use the information here:
    Backward compatibility in Android OR How I made a 2.2 Android APK run under 1.5! - Let me explain myself...
    To modify the source for koush android bootable recovery 23ce6b1 to install on 1.5 or 1.6, so we have some chance of getting the same workaround the newer phones with locked recovery have? I will eventually learn enough java to do this but it would save me many hours if someone that knows what they are doing already would cook this up, because it's the last chance I see of modding this to work on devour.

    I'm a Computer Science major with a lot of experience coding Java (I am currently working on a large Java project of my own, in fact). I'll try to read through that page (got a busy life at the moment) and see if I can figure out wtf he's saying.

    The one thing all my experience with Java has taught me is that Java sucks. Though the API is completely open, a lot of the things Java has classes for you can write a much faster algorithm yourself. I've written filesaving algorithms (using simple FileOutputStreams) that work maybe two or three times faster than DataOutputStream, and those work another ten times faster by using buffered writes, cutting a file saving operation that used to take 45 seconds down to maybe two seconds.

    EDIT: This looks more like a guide for creating apps with the best backward compatibility than anything we can use. It's a guide for developers trying to make their apps compatible with as many devices as possible the best they can, not for people trying to hack an app to run on older Androids.
