    I'm looking to outsource some of my projects as I am simply lacking time. Now, I know my description might not make a lot of sense but I there are several reasons why I want it done that way.

    What I need is two things:

    • a script (bash, python, whatever) to build a runable dalvik virtual machine from the Android 4.0 source code

    • an app that holds the built virtual machine and another app (which I will provide). The app has to invoke the custom built virtual machine and load and execute the app. I don't care how it's done but it has to work on a stock not-rooted Android 4.0 smartphone just like any other app that has been downloaded from the app store. So download, install, run, be happy.

    There will be a lot of follow-up tasks on this and other projects. However, I'd like to see how the first job works out before I hire a freelancer for a longer time period. I'm currently having about a year of orders to work off.

    I have android app developer in my network who would be really efficient in this task. He quoted me 10 days as his load is light right now. He is proficient in Python & the HTC platform.

    He has really broken english but I am fluent in his language.

    I'll PM you to see if it can be a good match to work together.

    Trust is everything when doing business and one can't create trust when somebody finds out you're obviously lying.

    Here's a small guide on how to find out if somebody tries to scam you:
    1. Talk to him. Be careful if you've got a strange feeling and he is too much of a yea-sayer.
    2. Be twice as careful whenever there is another person involved and your business partner is the middleman
    3. Make sure your contractor understands exactly what you need
    4. Check if he's honest. I always upload a file with requirements to a webserver where I can access the logs. Find out if your contractor is at least opening the document and reading your requirements. If not and he is telling you "yes its all fine. I can do that" then something is terribly wrong. Move on to the next offer.


    So bottom line: the job offer is still open

    That's a great tip cb.ikt, thanks for that... anyway I always use one of those freelancers sites to find good developers. It's also easy to verify if you work with a legit person since people leave reviews and you can check their portfolio!

    Just google 'hire freelancers' and I always use the top 5 websites... and always had great result!
