Hi CTurner, I've just posted over on the Android building google group
about my board, a mini210S, I'd like to get the ethernet sorted out as
well, there should be an 'ethernet settings' app. in the ice cream sandwich
image that friendlyarm wrote, you should be able to set it to dhcp from
there and it should auto start like that next time you boot.
There is a another problem where the ethernet isn't patched into the
framework, so google play etc. aren't aware of eth0 as a download source.
There is the x86 ics ethernet patch, which I've tried to patch (the patch
succeeds) and compiled the rom but if I have the dpi set to auto (120) and
go into settings, the settings dialog crashes as soon as I scroll down to
the 'ethernet settings' tab, if I set it to hdpi (>200) I can access
settings and scroll past the ethernet settings tab but still can't access
it. I'm guessing that there are issues with a missing icon at the ldpi
setting for the 'ethernet settings' tab, but not entirely sure what's
stopping me from accessing it. any help would be appreciated and I can
take this to a new topic if that would be helpful?

I have a FreeARM Tiny210 development device running Android 4.0.3. The
Android system has ethernet support, and came prepackaged with an Ethernet
Settings application. The problem I'm having is that on boot, the device
assigns a static IP which doesn't play nice with the network my application
needs to use, so I have to manually go into the Ethernet Settings app. The
app does remember that I want to use DHCP, so every time I go into it it
automatically configures the settings correctly.
What I would like to know is how can I a) get my own app to reset ethernet
to use DHCP on start-up, or b) change some setting on the OS so that on
boot it selects DHCP.
Any thoughts on what I should be looking for?
