this question probably belongs on stackoverflow.com and would probably gather more attention there. –  jlehenbauer Jul 28 '11 at 12:40
If it was purely a programming question, then yes, clearly, it belongs at Stack Overflow. However, Android emulator questions are on-topic here. Since it's a gray area, it's okay to stay. –  Al E. Jul 28 '11 at 13:11
