Clement Escoffier resolved FELIX-1156.

    Resolution: Fixed

Fixed at revision 774881.
Allow Felix to run on a regular Android phone (Android 1.5). 
This is possible by using the loadDex method of the android.dalvik.DexFile class.

So, the resulting framework runs on Android 1.5.

> To run Felix on Android, it generally require to have the root access to the device to
grant permissions on the dalvik-cache (http://ipojo-dark-side.blogspot.com/2008/10/ipojo-on-android.html).
Moreover, Felix loads dex files by relying on an internal/private API of Android.
> Android 1.5 (CupCake) provides a method to load DEX file. This method is public, is part
of the API and allows to turn around the permission issue.
