[SOLVED] helloWorldPlugin example from LiveView SDK 1.0 does't work

No example from LiveView™ SDK 1.0 work (helloWorldPlugin).

Getting something like (mPluginId=0):
D/LiveViewPlugin(15550): Plugin registered. mPluginId: 0 isSandbox? true
D/LiveViewPlugin(15550): Plugin installation notified.
D/LiveViewPlugin(15550): Registry success!

Just add in your manifest.xml
<uses-permission android:name="com.sonyericsson.extras.liveview.permission.LIVEVIEW_API"/>

Noow works everything perfect - you got your mPluginId and can play ;)
D/LiveViewPlugin(15843): Plugin installation notified.
D/LiveViewPlugin(15843): Registry success!D/LiveViewPlugin(15843): Plugin registered. mPluginId: 161427209 isSandbox? true
D/LiveViewKupriyanovPlugin(15481): startPluginD/LiveViewKupriyanovPlugin(15481): Enter HelloWorldService.startWork.

You can use

and parse the DetailedState enum of the returned NetworkInfo object

 

and don't forget to allow it the Manifest

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE" />
