[A8] Application startup

A8 is packaged as a normal Android Application, that contains a (full screen) webview.
A webview is a widget that render a web page. The page is stored as an application resource.

The webview is extended to support most native funtions present in console platform (e.g. file operations, to read/save modules,images,resources from external files in runtime).
See details of implementation in java source files, e.g. class MainActivity in package com.aleReimondo.a8

The startup mechanism is similar to web platform.
A clean S8 system is loaded from an image file, stored as an application resource file (see folder ./assets in the A8 Project).

The image contains U8 tools and the [A8] Configuration framework that will complete loading from external files in folder A8 in root of memory card.
