Post Android/Linux for CDMA Touch Pro 2

Android for CDMA Touch Pro 2 (RHOD400/RHOD500)

  • Thanks to flyers2114, there is a single zip file you can download that has all the files included. Otherwise, the long instructions are below

  • Download babijoee's latest XDANDROID release, and unzip it to the root of your SD card.
  • Download the latest kernel package from glemsom's kernel autobuild site. Untar the file (it's like unzipping -- 7-zip in windows can do this), rename zImage.xxxxxxxxx to zImage, and replace all zImage and modules* files in the root of your sdcard with these.
  • Download the rootfs zip attached to this post and unzip it. Move the file (should be called rootfs.img) to the root of your SD card, replacing the XDANDROID rootfs.
  • Download the startup.txt attached to this post, and copy it into the root of your SD card.
  • Using File Explorer, navigate to the Storage Card and run HaRET.exe to boot Android
  • Note that if you are upgrading from 95civic's builds, you should remove all Android-related files from your SD card except for data.img

2010-03-09: Updated rootfs to fix arrow key mapping
2010-03-08: Updated startup.txt to fix g-sensor and virtual keyboard issues
2010-03-07: New version of the RIL: should be more reliable (i.e. not booting into Airplane mode as often), and Market now works! Also thanks to NeoMatrixJR, some keymap fixes

Feature Status
  • CDMA Radio: phone calls, SMS
  • CDMA Data: only tested with Sprint, Verizon should work, MetroPCS, USCC and others may not
  • Earpiece/mic (only for phone calls)
  • WiFi (Networks with WEP encryption do not work, unprotected and WPA networks are fine)
  • Keyboard
  • Backlight control: turn off auto-dimming in WinMo if you want it to work
  • Touchscreen: works but has glitches
  • Battery status:
  • Power management: Definitely a work in progress, don't expect more than maybe 8 hours on a charge.
Not Working
  • Sound (music, ringtones, etc.)
  • Speakerphone
  • Bluetooth
  • Camera
  • GPS
  • Hardware 3D accel
  • USB Mass Storage

I do accept donations (and would also be very grateful for any computer engineering job leads in San Diego/SoCal), but remember there are many other people who have gotten HTC Linux to this point: phh, cr2, makkonen, dzo, and others
