android on diam500!!!

ok i managed to make it work. i dont take any credit though cuz all i did was tinker a bit. the credit for the zimage goes to MrPippy at xda. so go thank him. im just a messager. so first ur gonna need the files. u can get the latest build for the diamond (09092009) at http://connect-utb.com/index.php?opt...or-htc-diamond. that alone wont get this thing hoppin on a diam500. so u need the zimage that MrPippy modded for us( so thank him) its at http://forum.xda-developers.com/atta...0&d=1252565799. ok now unrar 09092009 on to the root of ur internal storage. then extract MrPippy's zimage to the root also. overwrite the one thats there. now go to the start up text file and make it look like this:

set RAMSIZE 0x08000000
Set ramaddr 0x10000000
set MTYPE 2040
set KERNEL zImage
set initrd initrd.gz
#
# The following kernel parameters are useful
# ppp.username - The username used to connect to the network when dialing #777
# ppp.password - The password used to connect to the network when dialing #777
# msm_sdcc.msmsdcc_fmax - The maximum frequency (in Hz) used by the SD controller
# pm.sleep_mode - The mode used when the phone is off
# 0=Power Collapse Suspend, 1=Power Collapse, 2=Apps Sleep,
# 3=Slow Clock and Wait for Interrupt 4=Wait for Interrupt
# Default is 3, use 0 for best power savings
# board-htcvogue.panel_type - Panel type used to power the panel off and on
# 0=Don't power off the panel (Default)
# 1=Hitachi 2=Topoly 3=Samsung
# mddi.width - width of the scaled display
# mddi.height - height of the scaled display (these should be multiples of 16 for the camera to work I think)
set cmdline "msmts_calib=0x81.0x393.0x358.0x7D msmvkeyb_toggle=off mddi.width=320 mddi.height=480 lcd.density=240 ppp.apn=sprint ppp.username=username ppp.password=password no_console_suspend"
#set cmdline "no_console_suspend"
# fbcon=rotate:1
# console=ttyMSM0"
Boot
mkdir /proc
mkdir /sys
mount -t proc proc /proc
mount -t sysfs sysfs /sys
mount -t tmpfs tmpfs /dev
mdev -s
"ls -l /dev/mmc*"


ok now ur ready to boot heret.exe. it will load and take a few minutes. be patient. the sceen may go black. dont worry just wait. and u should be all good. if it says its locked and press menu. menu is the home key. have fun

edit: ther are alot of bugs and alot of things that dont work right. its not a full port. it does look good though. i know texting works. atleast for me, im on sprint. no sound though and the phone is buggy. i couldnt get it to work right. maybe someone around here can help hook this thing up.

Re: android on diam500!!!

I've got a touch diamond and a touch (vogue), and it seems like when the initial android kernel was working on vogue it favored CDMA users heavily, with the GSM'ers complaining on xda about not being able to connect to the net. This time it is the other way around, the GSM DIAM100's are able to connect, but not me with my 500.

I would use my touch (vogue) exclusively with android if it wasn't one of the unlucky ones that has the really awful screen that you can't view from any angle except for straight down.

I check xda every day for mentions of CDMA diamonds.

Re: android on diam500!!!

This is awesome. At least there is some network functionality now. It's definitely pretty laggy/unresponsive at times though.
