HP updates - The button bar on my 2510 got replaced last week. I now have working volume buttons again. However, the machine now reboots whenever the machine is suspended and I close the lid. Diagnosed to either a faulty switch assembly or system board, which will require an engineer visit. An engineer dropped round today to fix the touchpad. Despite the case notes clearly stating that the problem was with the cable assembly, he was sent a replacement top cover unit. Without any cables. So he's coming back at some point. HP's customer support system apparently does not allow these cases to be merged. Which means I now have two visits to look forward to.
Android - I'm gradually working my way through the code, replacing various custom interfaces with standard ones. const char * const LCD_BACKLIGHT = "/sys/class/leds/lcd-backlight/brightnes
