[EVO VIEW][HC][WIP]HoneyComb on the Evo View 4G

Introduction:

This project is temporarily on hold due to financial hardships. I plan to be back very soon.

Since we have HoneyComb for the Flyer already, I wanted to start a thread to try and get HC ported to the View for us Sprint junkies. I'd like to gather information, not only for porting HC, but for the View as a whole. I've done a ton of searching and still haven't found hardly any info for it.

Questions:

These are the random questions I have for now:

-Does the View run the same hardware as the Flyer?
-What all hardware is in the View?
-What are the odds of successfully flashing the Flyers Radio.img/hboot.img to the View
-Others that I haven't thought of, or don't have the time to write out at the moment.



I'd greatly appreciate all the support I can get on this. I'm not familiar with the View or Flyer at all. I come from Evo 4G and Evo 3D development and would really like to get into the View as well.

Thanks in advance everyone.

Can't contribute much right now, but like the train of thought. I can't imagine hardware wise anything other than the radio is different.

I'd like to know what the flyers partitions look like. If someone could run adb shell df - h and paste the output here that would help immensely.

Wow, I'm very glad someone has come up and decided to do this.

1. I feel like it might be a bit of a waste considering HC is SUPPOSED to be officially released in the future. So it would suck if you did all this hard work to make the port and then like 2 weeks later we get the official version to work with.

2. I will run that command when I get home in like an hour and show you the output.


I wouldn't mind helping you in someway, if I can. I'm familiar with linux command line and such ie. i know what df -h does and what it means and all that stuff, BUT I've never played around with making ROMs or anything like that.

Any help I can give, I'm down to do. Good luck.

edit: I see you are looking for the FLYER'S parition table, not the view's.... my bad.

I feel like a complete douche in doing this but I have to put this project on hold. I've recently come into some financial trouble and had to sell my View for some extra cash. I do have plans to continue this project once I can manage to afford another View. As for the possibility of HTC releasing HC for it before I can get it going, oh well, thats the risk we take when we develop lol.

Would it help for the dev to own both a flyer and a view to get development done?
I haven't gotten to take a look at the flyer, but I am under impression that the view is not too much different...

We also have a donation going on in the general chat for someone to develop on the view, if this works for the OP

Apart from the 4G and CMDA capabilities, the flyer and the evo view 4G are one and the same tablet.

Yeah, only the radios and the color are different. I suppose if you could take the official HC build for the Flyer and somehow merged the WiMax and CDMA code into that build it may work, but I'm not well versed on how to go about doing that. I see builds on the Evo 3D that are Sense 3.5 but they don't have working 4G for whatever reason.
On the OG Evo they made 4G work on CM7 by building code from the ground up to work with the hardware, but it hasn't moved over to 3D yet and there is no official build from CM for the 3D. Maybe that code could be ported? Of course it would probably have to be an AOSP build which I've not seen yet for either the View or Flyer.
