Re: Android/Linux for CDMA Touch Pro 2

I just tested it, I wasn't able to.. I wonder if that poster used wifi and maybe wasn't realizing it or something....

A note of interest for everyone trying this, I used flyers all-in-one and deleted everything but my data file like Mr. Pippy said to. But upon entering android I was unable to access the marketplace, so I restarted phone, went into file explorer, deleted the data file. Android reinstalled, and went through the usual setting up stuffs. And bam, marketplace works now. Hope this helps someone.

Re: Android/Linux for CDMA Touch Pro 2

First off want to say thanks again.... the speed that this is moving along is crazy! I'm loving this release and wasting an extraordinary amount of time fiddling with it. When sound starts working this will totally be my new OS, sucky battery life or not.

Has anybody been able to get Live Wallpapers to work? I downloaded some in MarketPlace and they are not under the "Wallpapers" where they were in the previous release. Is there a step I'm missing or something else I need to download? Not really a big deal, but it's a nice thing to show off with... lol

Took me about 3 loads before it stopped soft-resetting on me. Keep at it and it may boot up after a few tries.

Does anyone know why Gen.Y boots things so fast? Its loading my windows rom in half the time it normally takes. This just keeps getting better and better.

Yeah, howd you do it? I cant for the life of me figure it out.
Also, I cant find the apps that are already on the storage card under the androidapps folder. When I load android none of them are there and the program to load them (astro i believe) isnt there either.

Depends on which version of Gen Y you install. There's a cab version of Gen Y that boots android directly from the SD card without having to make the registry edit:
