Hi Everyone ,
I am GSOC 2012 Aspirant and a 2nd year undergraduate from NMIMS University,

I am interested in the android development concerning the Idea "Use your
SmartPhone to remote-control slideshow" . I plan to use the WLAN and
Bluetooth to achieve this. Also I plan to add a feature to this app , to
change slides by using the accelerometer phone sensor , so that user can
change the slide by simply giving a jerk in the required direction. Till now
i have managed to get a reasonable stable connection between a laptop and
phone which can find each other when connected to the same network. 

Also , I am new to open-source and community based development , I managed
to patch an Easy Hack 

Easy Hack 47864 - UI: Add HELP button and content to Starmath Font size

I have committed this to my local git repository and re-based to master
branch , however i am having trouble making a patch file , I get this output
by the command git show :
