Re: Simple Guide, 6 Easy Steps (15 min): ANDROID TP2 DL links, 3/25 FRX06, GingerBre

I want to setting up an apn to access internet from my phone by using all the value as Winmo is but no luck. I think the setting is nothing wrong for my carrier. I do not know where the problem come from .
Ah, just forget about usb tethering for now.

Thanks

I also have the same issue with the GSM signal getting lost continuously once the screen goes off.

I read the comments above on using another kernel, any direction on the topic how to change it?

Also, is there any chance to use a GSM Android version on the TP2 Sprint version and work for both camera and GSM signal ?

Btw, thanx for this topic its really helping me.

My FRX06 thread includes directions on how to swap kernels.

Not at this time. As I stated already, there's a bug in the clocks commit that came in on kernel #1258. It hasn't been fixed since. This predates camera functionality.

Hello All! Great Thread you have here Teradog! I'm an avid member of Howard Forums and have decided to become a member of PPCG since I wish to know as much as possible about my TP2 and what it's capable of and KNOW this is a great community as is HoFo. One thing I have noticed that may be of interest is that if you have your TP2 in XDAndroid and charging it is possible to do a battery pull without losing power. It must be done quickly but this allows for battery swaps and since I own 2 extras it comes in handy(this will not work in WM). I also want to thank arrrghhh for the suggestion of SystemPanel lite as my physical(answer,hang,back and menu) buttons are not functional and it's a bitch to go into app manager>forceclose everytime I get somewhere I can't back out of.

Anybody have any help with acquiring an initial signal when android starts up. I have set the phone to CDMA only and removed the sim card but it still says no signal over half the time after a reboot

Read the whole thread I'm pretty sure this has been answered if not update.

So in the startup.txt there's a rel_path= setting under cmdline - no? If there is no setting, you have to put everything at the root of the SD card - no folders. If you want to put everything in a folder, you need to set the rel_path= setting. For example, I have my Android two folders deep - so my rel_path=Androids/FRX06. Hope this helps.

I now have everything in the root of the SD card. My startup.txt has "rel_path=andboot"

From what Arrrghhh posted you need everything in the andboot folder not to the root if rel_path=andboot is your startup.txt....thats just how I read it, I may be way off since I'm a noober.
