Re: Android/Linux for CDMA Touch Pro 2

Wow, this is great. I haven't tried this since the early Civic builds.

I followed the first post, used the single zip file, extracted to root of SD. Ran Haret, everything works! Calls, sms, google maps, android market, email, etc. Now only if the camera would work, I'd be using this all day...

Great work!

I had problems with an SD card also. I had to add msm_sdcc.msmsdcc_fmax=14000000
to the startup.txt to slow down accesses to my card then everything was fine. Without it I was corrupting the file system on the card bad enough that sometimes I had to reformat, and it almost never made it into android successfully without it. Don't know how bad that affects my performance, but it doesn't seem bad.

Well they added directions for getting it to boot while in a folder, so I followed those. I guess I'll go back to using a dedicated SD card. I'd like to have it on my 8gb sdhc but android generates too many junk files to keep track of.

^I think that would solve a great portion of the questions in this thread!

You mean kinda like this?

It's right under your battery. Just follow the instructions under the battery and use the stylus to slide it out.
Its right at the bottom of page one. Anyone that gets through any kind of browsing on the first page and scrolls to the bottom to click the "Reply" button has to scroll right over this. Guess some people still have a problem with red. It's been there for most of the birth of this thread, and now it's here on Page 100 in conjunction with yours. No Excuses people.

Not yet. I have read that there are a very few people that it worked right out of the gate though. (Note. this is on the FAQ on page 1)

Sounds like when USCC has an Android phone the fix will come sometime there after. I have worked on this personally for many hours with no luck.
