FLAC support

Ok, so I unlocked and rooted my Nexus One, installed Paul's excellent 1.1 R.O.M., and it seems to be working nicely. My two immediate concerns for my Nexus One are the ability to play F.L.A.C. music files, and cache Google Maps for offline use. I'll start with my first request, though: How do I add FLAC support?

I'm using Gentoo Linux and I've downloaded Android's source code using the instructions here: http://groups.google.com/group/android-dev...8a7cb2ce0?pli=1,

used this to help with an error message about java when compiling: http://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=985

plus I've followed the instructions here: http://the-b.org/FLAC_on_Android .

However, I'm getting error messages when I try to compile it:

 javadoc: error - invalid flag: -since

1 error

make: *** [out/target/common/docs/offline-sdk-timestamp] Error 45

Which is weird, because I compiled it earlier today without any apparent problem.

Edit: I just ran repo sync in my source directory, and it seems to be compiling ok now. I probably should have tried that first. Still... won't using the compiled image nullify the changes that Paul made? Hopefully someone can make a patch or help me with this, because I'm not really That skilled yet; I can muddle through the basics, especially with good instructions, but that's about it.

Honestly, I don't mind one bit if someone else makes a patch for it that I can just install in recovery mode; I wouldn't even mind download a separate media player with its own codecs. I rip all my C.D.'s in this audio format, and I really don't want to transcode my music into ogg or anything else. I would greatly appreciate some help.

Native FLAC support needs to be compiled into Opencore library. Once the source drops Cyanogen will include it since he has it in his builds now.

There are some standalone FLAC players though you can use in the meantime.

Check out this link.

Thanks for the link. I installed the program and followed the instructions, but it says 'Write error' when I try to play a file, even though I set the permissions correctly. Do you know what is wrong?

For offline map, you can try MapDroyd on the market. It can use the offline map from OpenStreetMap. It works fine on my Samsung Galaxy (Android 1.5), I'm not sure if it works on 2.1.

Thanks for the suggestion. I do have MapDroyd, and it works rather well, but the two things that it lacks, as far as I'm concerned, are satellite imagery and driving directions, which are features that I particularly like.

You could go for CoPilot Live - Costs £26 for a country or section of the US and 50 ish for all USA or All Europe etc - Maps are fully installed on the SD Card like TomTom and it can be used without any Data needs, although I think it probably works more efficiently using aGPS for extra info but that uses minimal data. Also once bought it is a one off fee and constantly updatable, and transferable to other android devices if you send your new IMEI for a new code.
