No Google sync?? what do you mean greg35?

I get a full google sync (mail/contacts...) with the cupcake 4.5 firmware posted above.

Try to wipe your device after flashing in order to "factory reset" it.

by the way, some options remain in english even when we choose "french" as the main language. But that don't bother me at all :)

I have now another splash on my orange dream...

Does this action change Orange SPL?

I don't understand, what is really SPL? Is it program that load boot.img? Or is it boot.img?
I read that Orange firmware (Orange firmware is different than Orange SPL isn't it?), checks SPL and if signature of SPL is different, Orange firmware won't boot. So how is it possible than changing splash image (part of SPL) is possible?

Is it possible to have a link of different steps during a boot? For example, IPL then SPL then boot.img? I am a bit lost

Thanks

Few question examples :
- why do we have to start flashboot with different images each time ?

It's fastboot. Orange SPL is locked so we boot into a special recovery mode using fastboot.
Quote:

- what does flashboot do exactly ? loading something directly into phone memory ?

Fastboot allows you to flash partitions of your phone. Or boot into a custom boot.img. Here's a manual.
Quote:

- what is exactly SPL ?

It's a sort of bootloader. Integrating fastboot mode and recovery mode.
Just read SPL thread. Also my post.
Quote:

- what about DREA100 & DREA200 (didn't understant anything) ?

Google ADP1 and US phones are models DREA100.
French and Italians phones are models DREA200. Don't know much about the differences.
Quote:

- what is the difference between 4.5 version and 4.9 version of android?

Here's all.
4.5 is Google product line and 4.9 is from HTC.
Quote:

- how flash memory is organize into our dream phones ? (different sections for SPL ? bootloader ? main os ?)

Look at previous fastboot one for main flash parts. For SPL and radio I don't know where they are stocked.
Quote:

- what about flashloader key check ? is it really bootloader that check ?

For easy flashs you should put modified french SPL. It works fine and allows you to flash your phone without orange signed files.

I think H means HTC branch, which miss some Google features.

Did you try 5.0G (I think Google branch) ?

Tutorial to flash 5.0.1G...

Tested on french Orange Dream (previously flashed with ADP1.1 with this tutorial : http://wiki.smartphonefrance.info/fi...-htcdream.ashx)

WARNING : 5.0.xG have french language, 5.0.xH doens'nt !


----- Introdution -----

Before everything, you'll need to have :
- Android SDK fully & correctly installed.
Windows : http://developer.android.com/sdk/dow...ows-1.1_r1.zip
Mac OsX : http://developer.android.com/sdk/dow...x86-1.1_r1.zip
Linux : http://developer.android.com/sdk/dow...x86-1.1_r1.zip
- fastboot tool (you have to do a right click, and save link as, if not, you'll be redirected on HTC site):
Windows : http://member.america.htc.com/downlo...P/fastboot.exe
Mac OsX : http://member.america.htc.com/downlo...stboot-mac.zip
Linux : http://member.america.htc.com/downlo...P/fastboot.zip
- a correct USB driver installed for Dream fastboot connexion (for Windows)
avoid driver provided with Android SDK, it often doesn't works
- recorveryBoot.img from JF 1.43
http://koxx3.free.fr/recoveryBoot.img


----- OS update to Cupcake version ------

needed file :
http://sapphire-port-dream.googlecod...osd-signed.zip
you'll find more recent update here if needed : http://code.google.com/p/sapphire-po...downloads/list

- rename 5.0.1G-appstosd-signed.zip to update.zip

- put update.zip on sdcard root

- reboot Dream in fastboot mode (back + power while Dream is off). You will see Androids on skateboards.

- on PC : fastboot boot recoveryBoot.img

- on Dream : type ALT+S to flash update.zip

- when flash is done, type HOME + BACK to reboot

Once android is rebooted, it's better to do a "reset to factory" to avoid old software configuration problems.



----- azerty keyboard install ------

needed file :
http://forum.xda-developers.com/atta...5&d=1239106569
thanks greg35

Note : you an use copy/paste under windows cmd shell

- unzip content to sdcard root
- execute shell and folloing commands on PC :
adb shell
su
mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system
cd /sdcard

cat azerty.kl > /system/usr/keylayout/trout-keypad-qwertz.kl
cat azerty.kl > /system/usr/keylayout/trout-keypad-v2.kl
cat azerty.kl > /system/usr/keylayout/trout-keypad-v3.kl
cat azerty.kl > /system/usr/keylayout/trout-keypad.kl
cat azerty.kl > /system/usr/keylayout/qwerty.kl
cat azerty.kl > /system/usr/keylayout/sapphire-keypad.kl
cat azerty.kcm.bin > /system/usr/keychars/qwerty.kcm.bin
cat azerty.kcm.bin > /system/usr/keychars/qwerty2.kcm.bin
cat azerty.kcm.bin > /system/usr/keychars/sapphire-keypad.kcm.bin
cat azerty.kcm.bin > /system/usr/keychars/trout-keypad-qwertz.kcm.bin
cat azerty.kcm.bin > /system/usr/keychars/trout-keypad-v2.kcm.bin
cat azerty.kcm.bin > /system/usr/keychars/trout-keypad-v3.kcm.bin

You'll need a partition tool :
With windows : for example, Partition paragon manager 8 (google search to find it)

- with your PC and this tool, split your SD card in 2 partitions :
1 small in EXT2 for your application & cache storage (for example 256Mb)
1 bigger in FAT32 for your data such as MP3 pictures ...
be carefoul : FAT32 partition should the FIRST one.
- on PC, to move your apps to sdcard, type:
adb shell
busybox cp -a /data/app /system/sd/
rm -r /data/app
ln -s /system/sd/app /data/app
- on PC, to move your cache to sdcard, type:
adb shell
busybox cp -a /data/data /system/sd
rm -r /data/data
ln -s /system/sd/data /data/data
- then adb shell reboot


----- radio update to Sapphire Radio 2.22.19.23 ------

http://sapphire-port-dream.googlecod...%28rc33%29.zip

- reboot Dream in fastboot mode (back + power while Dream is off). You will see Androids on skateboards.

hi

have you tried it ? I don't know how this can work... the spl is patched for update with fastboot not for update with the recovery tools. Even if it works the update will update also the boot and i think that this new boot won't be able to deal with our spl...
