Network is up - Android 0.9 SDK beta

I checked system propertis in the emulator.
$ ./emulator &
$ ./adb shell
# getprop
There is a new property [net.dns1] and [net.dns2].

net.dns1 sounds very interesting, so I modified android-root/default.prop, adding;
OK. Network is up. Now I can browse the Internet and see Street View with Map application.

I haven't study yet how Android handles WiFi. My case, let the kernel connect to WLAN before chroot to Android user land. Android needs to know DNS address only, where default.prop comes to.

If you look into /system/lib, you will find wlan.ko under modules directory. I guess this kernel module should be replaced by your WiFi driver. Please refer wifi.c source code at following source code tree.


Happy hacking,
