Carlos,

I know this is an old post, but I wanted to ask you about dropping support for ARMv6. The MyTouch 1.2 is in widespread use today and is based on the Qualcomm chip with ARMv6 instructions. I have not tested yet but it would seem that the latest build will no longer work with Android 2.2 on these devices (ARMv7 only).

There are a boatload of handsets based on the Qualcomm processor, they are all currently running Android 2.1 or 2.2 and most of them are < 2 years old. Are you really going to stop supporting them?

Just wondering what your thoughts are.

Yes. I made it very clear. Since January I have asked a lot of you doing Android work about feedback and performance issues and moving to faster ARM7 processors and almost 99% of you said, go for it.

Search the forums for additional comments.

2.2 ARM7 devices now account for almost 60% of the Android market share.

And performance was an issue. Your, and your colleagues here requested us to drop support for slower phones dude to customers leaving you a one star rating on the app.

Also, our competitors are moving to ARM7 only. We can't afford to have an SDK that is known to create (perception) slow apps.
