I just got my Elevate WebBuilder app working on the Nexus 7 Android emulator, with
no code changes at all. Scary!

Starting a few hours ago with a clean virtual machine of Windows 7, I started at
the PhoneGap download page. I've never used any of these things before. There is a
handy "Getting Started with Android" guide in the installed files, and I just
followed that, downloaded all the prerequisites, and got the sample running. Then I
copied in my output directory content to the www assets directory, and ran it. It
takes a while to start, but when I looked back wondering what the next step to make
it work was, there was my app running as it should. Goodness me!

My app talks to a RemObjects server using its API, so it is sort of independent,
and I did have to change the connection line from the "where did I come from" to
the fixed name, but apart from that it is working well. I aim to have it tested on
a few real devices soon.

FWIW, all is fine on my Android 2.3 test device, and the code runs on my 2.1 test
device (worst device you could ever buy IMO) but fails with an SSL issue which is
the same as we had to stop us working on it last time. But the EWB code runs and
shows a nice error anyway.

I can't yet get it to work on my Nexus 4 or 7 devices. They show the settings, then
just say it didn't install. Harumph. Even plugging the darned thing into the USB
port isn't showing it as a device, so I don't know what I'm doing wrong at all.
More time to work on it...

Silly question but did you enable the developer mode on Nexus 4 and
install the usb drivers?

I had to reinstall the usb drivers on mine to show up as proper
composite adb interface device.

What's the SSL issue ? just unknown signing authority of somethign else?

Okay I deleted the old version of the apps which were done with an old javascript
native tool, and it has installed. I shall have to fix that, but it isn't EWB.

I will have to check. I got it working after trying the third USB cable (so much
for standards!), but not in debug mode. Not sure what that does, but less important
now that I can load from web.

I think it was some authentication issue, and there are possibly horrible
workarounds that we found, and of course it was fixed in a later build but never to
hit a device. We decided to make 2.3 the min level and fix it should it ever be
needed.
