Guessing the "hardware"buttons are failing

Changed keyboard settings in startup.txt.
from the standard startup to en very long cmdline I found in this post. Nothing works?

Please help.
I had the same problem with my blackstone: i used the second system2.ext (15july) and now home button works fine!

No need for that, just update to the newest rootfs and put the physkeyboard setting in your startup.txt... this is in the caveat post folks, please read it.

I'll just leave it right here

IMPORTANT NOTES:
This is the most recent kernel (same as 20111017_080427 from autobuild) with jbruneaux "fix" for cracking audio. It was modified by me so it shouldn't break other devices like original solution did. All it does is temporary disabling of battery polling when speaker/headphones are active. This means battery status won't be updated until music is stopped. Modules are quite big because I had trouble with stripping them. Still... they should be functionally identical with the ones from autobuild.

Please note that I can't guarantee everything will work as with autobuild kernel. Unfortunately I've deleted all my linux VM files (by accident) and had to redo everything from a scratch. My previous build configuration was pretty solid but the new one is still unproven.

Hi,

I don't want to release anything that's wasn't published officially by XDAndroid devs. Also it's not exactly "my build" it's the same as XDAnroid repo with my apps and ringtones. I'm sure official release (better than my homegrown stuff) will come soon.

I should probably change my sig

I didn't have any issues with sleep/wake on current kernel and build (there is pm.sleep_mode=1 in my startup.txt but it's probably irrelevant). Camera can take stills but not video - known bug.
If you follow this tutorial you should be able to build your own system image with minimum effort. However there are few things to note:
1. You need to use Ubuntu 10.04. It won't work on older version and there are additional steps in Ubuntu 11.10 (not covered by this tutorial).
2. First build takes absurdly long time. It was something like 10 hours on my Linux VM. May be faster on quad-core native Linux machine but still it will be hours.
3. Using OpenJDK may not work! It's better to use latest sun-java6-jdk.
4. In step "Build Dependencies" you need to do everything as described with two exceptions.
a) signed-dream_devphone_userdebug-ota-14721.zip is no longer available on HTC Developer Center - google it.
b) HW3D driver is outdated. Google hw3d-20111216.zip.
5. Last thing to do before build is add booksphone.apk manually because it's missing from the latest gapps package. Google it and place under vendor/xdandroid/msm/proprietary.

Can't believe no one has thanked this post...

g3rm0, nicely done. The Getting the Source and related pages have been updated to reflect all these silly gotchas. Thanks again!
