On OpenMoko

Postby ludwig » Mon Feb 02, 2009 6:52 pm

AndFTP runs fine on the Openmoko Freerunner running Android (I am using the Koolu beta-2 kernel and a current RootFS).

Some small enhancements:
- hide passwords for FTP access
- editing the server address after the first entry does not change the name of the server that appears in the drop-down box
- it would be better to have a separate activity (full-screen) to enter the server details as this makes editing a bit easier with the soft keyboard available on the Openmoko.

A further thing (maybe that is already possible?) would be to make the intent public, so that it could be used from other applications as a uploading solution. I think of e.g. a GPS application that uploads tracks to a server on a periodic basis. The GPS application would just call the intent with server/login details/filename set and the upload would happen behind the scenes....

Good stuff though, makes my Openmoko ever more usable running Android.

For the password, you mean in the logs or in the setup ?
Since 1.0RC1, the password is hidden in logs.
