Have you been able to get the emulator working with the build sysimage?
In my experience, the emulator came up but the "phone" stays always with
a black screen while my CPU us over-used. I've waited some minutes but
nothing happens...

Is this maybe due to the fact that the android-freerunner distro tries
to set some values valid only for GTA0x hardware (i.e. /sys nodes)?

How would you suggest to develop using the koolu tree without testing in
real hardware?
