Wait the honeycomb rom doesnt work on it? That sounds odd or a flaw, did you tell Steve?

Maybe anyone of you is about to sell one and could send it to Poland?

Thank you in advance
I would say check ebay. Most people ship everywhere.


Also yea, playing emulators works great on it. Also another perk.. if you use wiimote IME. You could have your streak docked, away from you and you can use the wii mote or classic controller to move the menu around too and open apps and so. Very handy.

I have had some strange issues with with getting HDMI working on various DJ Steve's build but I chalked that up just not be official?

I'm running

StreakDroid HD7-2.0 R1

I think that is the latest...

anyone else having any issues? I'm sure the "offical" build will support it... I'm sure...

I'm running his HC build and it works fine for the most part. I can't get rid of the bottom status bar, and in comparison to my Logitech Revue, the Revue streams Amazon video much smoother and the PQ seems to be better as well. I'm usng the stock browser and I get a few video freezes where the sound keeps going, had some lip sync issues, and some other minor things. He Revue

what are some alternatives to the official dock like the g2 slacker? looking for something under $20 as both the official dock and the g2 dock go for at least 30 on ebay.

g2 slacker, while "looks" like same port, I doubt it is. Or would work. If you need a cheap alt,
http://www.amazon.com/Aftermarket-Pr...4806828&sr=1-1

HOWEVER I should mention these docks DO NOT have hdmi! So they will charge, and seperate cable to sync. However.. a dell streak dock without hdmi.. seems silly..? I know for me.. hook to HDMI, Use BT keyboard/touchpad (and I can run dos!) or BT gamepad and I can run emulators. Thats nice on a TV. =)

DONATE TO ME
The slacker dock only supports USB-IN, it doesnt support anything else on the S5/S7

Things missing from the slacker dock (that's available on the 2nd gen official dock):
  • Line-out
  • USB-in (ie OTG)
  • USB-high speed charing
  • HDMI-out
  • Dock sense (where the device automatically goes into clock mode)

The slacker dock has a headphone out, but the S5/S7 dont support it either (it may not have the pins for that, if it does it's different anyway). The slacker dock also has pads for USB-in, but that model was never officially made available(?).

Also I would STRONGLY recommend against a slacker dock for the S7 (if you can even find one), the S5 is a lot lighter then the S7.
The S7 barely fits on it, but it has absolutely no support besides the port itself.
The S5 already places all it's weight on the dock port, the S7 is asking to be broken by any accidentical impact.

If you are willing (or can find it at a reasonable price), I would strongly recommend the official 2nd gen dock for either the S5/S7.
It includes 2 backplates to support either model.

Also, the S5 dock in the previous link likely wont fit the S7, that's the reason the official dock comes with 2 backplates.
Your only real choice for the S7 is the official 2nd gen dock.

Are we sure the Offical Dell Dock has OTG?! I can't find documentation on that AT ALL.
