Because I had a lot of controversy until I came to the optimal option – for Android on my HTC I decided to write a pretty detailed explanation of things. In this case I will go into specification for installation on the NAND of the phone, haret boot option I will not discuss it, although with him things must be identical.
1. Training – before we start we need to prepare the kernel with which we will flash the NAND chip and make it possible to boot directly on Android. If you are running Linux or Mac OS I recommend Atools-and the option if you have Windows NBH Editor-a is your panacea. Then download the last kernel from GIT-and I personally recommend the latest version 2.6.25. Works more stable than 2.6.32 and saves more electricity, disadvantage is the low transfer of the wifi adapter, which suits me. Then open the nbh file and apply the settings for your phone and droid version . Then save the new reworked kernel for your phone. And you put it on your SD card. It must be in kaisimg.nbh format so that if we have an SPL, we can flash our phone from the SD card.. There is a lot written about these things everywhere, so I will not discuss them. After flashing with the kernel in question, you can now say goodbye to Windows Mobile 😉
2. Android – Once we are done with the top the phone will start charging in console mode and will prompt us to hold the d-pad or the middle button on the front panel. With it we enter the boot menu from which we can install, update, reset, etc. our Android. In order to be able to install we must have a folder andboot in our SD card, it must have a file named androidinstall.tar.gz or androidinstall.tgz. After trying almost all Froyo versions I think it is the fastest and most stable Fat Free Froyo. I personally use it and have had almost no bugs, I will hope that its developer will try so hard in the future as well. It is wise to make at least one before you start installing 512 or a little more ext2 partition on your SD card where data.img will sit or part of the droid wiv which programs will be installed. The installation itself is trivial, you choose your system to be on the NAND and your date on the ext2 partition. You are waiting 2-3 min until everything is set up and you will return to the original menu. Select Quit and your freshly installed Android will start. From now on, dare and have fun.
3. A few words about other things – First of all, I recommend the Radio ROM to be version 1.65.xx version. Versions 1.7xxxx don't work as well. There is some trouble around them with the scope of reading contacts from your SIM card and so on. If you still want to test 2.6.32 the kernel is likely that your Android will not start due to the various parameters that the new kernel passes to the init system. In this case, you update the system by placing the archive here in the adboot folder and then from the boot menus select to update the system. The good thing about it is that it makes the system an idea for a faster wifi adapter to suck at a higher speed but it is not as stable as 2.6.25 which is not a small minus 😉 separately that with it the Fat Free Froyo cannot save the contacts from the SIM.
From 2 days I completely lost Windows Mobile and installed Android on NAND 2.2 on my HTC Kaiser. Overall, my observations are positive – not that I have time for in-depth work and research of the seams that start on the phone, etc. but I like at least the idea that there is a normal terminal emulator, that I can stick a top on my phone, ls, iptables, telnet or ssh to do my job normally remotely. I have slight remarks on eating RAM but I believe, that if I drive a SWAP partition into it, things will improve. With the rest of the time, I will study in more detail the init structure of this nonsense to see how many unnecessary things I will remove and whether I will be able to save the startup time..
I have been the owner of for about a week now HTC TyTN 2. I sold my old HTC TyTN 1 and with some surcharge I bought the Kaiser(the TyTN code name 2). My new communicator is different from the old one with its much better hardware – a new generation ARM processor, 2 times more RAM for large NAND for ROM. Apart from the fact that it also has GPS, which I really missed in the old Hermes. The previous owner had not experimented with the machinery and so all the fun of SPL-unlocking and unlocking fell to me 🙂 At the moment I drive it with Android through the memory card, that something lately I'm not fascinated by the droid and I'm thinking of playing to port Openmoko GUI. My work on the previous project ended with the Touch Screen driver. I believe there was more bread in the project but I had neither the time nor the nerve to deal with it. For now, I will drive with Android until I have time to port Openmoko, but the droid, no matter how much I don't like it, is better Windows Mobile 😉 I have various remarks on the work of the phone but the project is too advanced yet to join the development team.
Now I look at the office phone too little and see, that I blew up his display without realizing it. I threw it away directly – he is a veteran Sony Ericsson T230 but overall his function was to drive a lot of time talking and yes … and yes it is. I only talk to a special group of people on my office phone, for more I have a personal 😉 Not that my personal is a miracle of technology K310 which I flashed with the software on W200i I also don't need this for some havi such as photos and videos, that's why he has digital cameras 😉 so my thought is that for now I have fixed the situation with a retired J100i for business but soon I will have to make my personal business and buy some more readable for personal. А ако ще си копувам ще искам да е нещо по така да речем с windows mobile че да мога да в последствие да му кача линукс или пък android-a на google. For now, I'm looking at some nice things and I've come up with a pretty interesting offer for HTC Diamond. But I like to give so much money for a phone hihihihihi, big dilemma right, on the other hand, it will soon be my birthday and it will not be bad to make a nice gift. Abe is a big dilemma 😈 and if I'm going to dig up my phone it won't be some ordinary, that I wish there were clicks on it, on the other hand I have an Asus EEE 1000H which fills my life for other rattles. Anyway, as long as I annoy people with idiots, if some have an offer phone from this rand to whistle 😉
