[Project] [15-Nov-2009] Linux Android on Blackstone by #htc-linux team
WARNING!!!! SOMEONE (ME ALSO) LOST THE USE OF VOLUME BOTTONS AND CAMERA IN WINDOWS MOBILE AFTER TESTING THIS ANDROID VERSION, THE ONLY WAY TO SOLVE THE PROBLEM IS A HARD RESET, SINCE WE ARE STILL TRYING TO FIX THIS KIND OF PROBLEMS I SUGGEST YOU TO TRY IT ONLY IF YOU ARE READY TO A POSSIBLE HARD RESET!!!
REMEMBER: ALWAYS WAIT FOR WINDOWS MOBILE TO FINISH HIS BOOTING SEQUENCE BEFORE STARTING HARET.EXE, MIGHT BE THIS THE CAUSE OF THE PROBLEM

Here's the new Thread a lot of people asked for:
A new project is born to port Android on different htc devices with the same build.
A team of linux experts on #htc-linux is working hard to make it real and i'm trying to keep You updated with it.
1- backup your data from yor sdcard to somewhere on your Computer (just to save pictures and music from accidents)
2- Format your sdcard fat32
3- download http://www.cobaltcode.com/fileupload...ux-15-11-09.7z
(right click and save as) and unzip it in the root of your sdcard
4- copy /startup/blackstone.txt to the root of your sdcard and rename it startup.txt
5- Edit the startup.txt as u prefere (only if You know what You are doing, otherwise just leave it like You found it)
6- A new zimage avaiable here http://glemsom.anapnea.net/android/htc-msm-android/
(the one from Fri Nov 20 23:54:15 2009 +0100 ) unzip and put everything in the root of your sdcard rename the new zImage.20091120_235415 to zImage and u can delete the old modules-2.6.27-00593-g3890096.tar.gz
7- download http://www.cobaltcode.com/fileupload...mg-15-11-09.7z
unzip it and replace the old rootfs.img
This will fix the recharging problems
8- Go to Windows power settings and uncheck the "Auto adjust backlight" option.
9- Disable PIN on your Windows Mobile
10- run a file explorer and find in the root of your sdcard the file named Haret.exe and launch it
11- Test Android on your HD Blackstone and let us know every little thing to fix
You can contact the team or help us by joining #htc-linux on freenode irc network

Anyway phh give me the idea to "fix" the problem with turning on screen so hard and loong...
Is not really a fix but is a cheat
Download a terminal from the market or search for "Better Terminal" on google and copy the *.apk file u get into your sdcard in the directory /AndroidApps/ (if there's not that dir just create it) After booting u should find the application in your menu
echo 42 > /sys/power/wake_lock (remember to use the "spaces" between 42 and > and /sys...)
To revert the process just soft reset
this makes only the screen to sleep and not the system, makeing the screen faster to wake up, but it will affect your battery life.
It's your choice guys.
I hope we will fix it in next releases
