How can i revert to previous version in git ?

There is git revert HEAD  and here is how i tested on a simple repository
mkdir test
cd test
git init  .
touch to_be_reverted
git add .
git commit -a
echo "Wrong text" > to_be_reverted
check it with

cat to_be_reverted
Wrong text
git commit -a
git revert HEAD
cat to_be_reverted

it should be empty like before

compiling quake 1 for #android

This time we use a simpler code than quake 2 or 3 and it should work on slower devices and emulator without problems

code is hosted in mercurial

http://code.google.com/p/glesquake/source/checkout

hg clone https://glesquake.googlecode.com/hg/ glesquake
cd glesquake
ndk-build

ls -lah  release/QuakeActivity.apk
-rw-rw-r-- 1 mariuz mariuz 278K Dec  1 22:57 release/QuakeActivity.apk
