  1.      var list = new sap.m.List({ 
  2.      id : "yourlist"
  3.      updateFinished : function(oEvent){  
  4.           var firstItem = this.getView().byId("yourlist").getItems()[0];  
  5.           this.getView().byId("yourlist").setSelectedItem(firstItem,true);  
  6.           // perform further neede code modfieng detail page based upon first item 
  7.           } 
  8.      });
