How to install PhoneGap and Start Guide?

Here you go ( http://phonegap.com/start ). Here its detailed enough how to install and start guide of phonegap for all platforms. I choose Android platform. Here I’m going to talk about the issues i faced when setup a new project. I followed exactly the steps said by them but when I run the application it shows below errors:

Unknown chromium error: -6
DroidGap: GapViewClient.onReceivedError: Error code=-1 Description=A network error occurred. URL=file:///android_asset/www/index.html

Goggled, a few people faced the same problem and they given solution to fix this issue, they are:

1) add super.init() before loadurl();
2) add super.setIntegerProperty(“loadUrlTimeoutValue”, sometimevalue); 

will be like this:

public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {

super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
super.init();
super.setIntegerProperty(“loadUrlTimeoutValue”, 6000);
super.loadUrl(“file:///android_asset/www/index.html”);
}

Now my code has those lines. I hoped after adding those lines my app works. I run my app, unlucky faced the same problem. So something is missing or doing wrong. After 2 hours, found that there is a extra space at beginning  of file name in”  index.html”.  I removed the space now it works 🙂

Whenever you are facing this problem first check the file name conversion is correct and then add above two lines(blue color) in your code.
