I actually go back to Stock 2.2, and than upgrade from there.
To whom it may concern,
Be it you feel included or excluded by my comment(s), I recognize "contributors" such as Manii, Givven, DJ etc. but do mind "2 cent-ers"... I want to help make results notjust comment about others efforts or paradie around like they were my own or as if ive made significant contributions; just as many here my feel my reply/comment was worthy of deletion as how I feel about his reply...
On a more on topic note ive spent all night configuring my PC with eclipse 3.7 & the 3.2hc &ics adts to begin ventues into Droid programming...
Its my understanding that ICS is an attept to somewhat unify 2.2fyro thru 3.2hc into one world... Its also my understanding that if ICS is setup correctly an HC driver -such as modem or camera- can be foreward compatable with ICS...
Im grateful for my own rant because now we are finding that there may or may not be a safe reversion back to HC from ICS -apparently previously unknown by many others here too- which for me is great news..!
Im going to tinker with eclipse & pretend to know what im doing with DS7ICS ROM in an emulator...
That link you provided is approximately what I would have released, but why is it in the general section of xda?
That would allow you to restore back to stock, the previous nvflash payloads i'm aware of otherwise wouldnt.
What's the exact rom included with that payload?
I'm going to prepare something regardless as it's fairly easy to repack nvflash.
NVflash shouldnt touch your external sdcard though, it may not even have access to it at all from what I've seen.
EDIT: THERE IS A SERIOUS ERROR IN THAT SCRIPT: it flashes P23.img, and that contains your device's unique ID data, such as your service tag and IMEI (if valid)
You must remove the line related to P23 if you do decide to use that script.
S7 users should NEVER flash a P23.img that isnt from their device for this very reason.
Am I on the right track with eclipse & the APT sets..? Do I just load up a fyro, hc, or ics ROM in the emulator & tinker from there..?
Im dying to wipe off kongergate from the hc ROM lol
Edit: Should I get nVidia Tegra Android Developer Pack 1.0r7 or the Tegra Android Toolkit 1.0r5..? Not sure where to start for us DS7 newbie programmers...
This is an obvious download for anyone interested in development: Tegra Android Ice Cream Sandwich (4.0) OS Image for Tegra2 Developer Kit (Ventana)
