Hi. Is it possible to view the Java code of an app that has been downloaded from the Android Market? How is that done?

The android market contains only the .apk files not the source. You can download the source if it is open source as robin said.

the file you get from the android market is an apk file. the only way you can view the java source is to use a rooted phone and a special software to "get" the original source via re engineering it. doing this is quite naughty though as you're not meant to be able to view someone's src files unless they say you can (and thats by them stating and offering to give you the files/open source)

Can you root an emulator? I created a pretty good app from the Google App inventor but due to their limitations they don't allow uploads to their store. I was wondering if rooting an emulator is possible.
