FILES YOU NEED:
the nbh flashed to your phone
an sd card with the andboot folder at the top level
an androidinstall.tar file plopped into the andboot folder
then just hold down volume up or dpad center or the middle of your touchscreen when booting and go through the menu to choose where to put things and then install the system. (for those without a dpad, pretend the touchscreen is a giant dpad)
if you're doing it with haret, extract basefiles to your sd, plop the androidinstall.tar into the same folder, and boot, hold down volume up (camera on kaiser/polaris) just like the nand people (but don't pick nand to store the files, it won't work)
all the files
basefiles for the haret folks out there
Grab the nbh files for your device. Only difference between eclair and non-eclair is that eclair is set up to use the newer hw3d driver, non-eclair is set to use the older one (for donut/cupcake)
These do not use rootfs. They remove it completely and free up that extra space in your nand for a bigger, cleaner system.
They also have my new menu-based installer! Yay! Just hold-down volume-up or dpad center or the middle of your touchscreen
THIS WON'T WORK WITH ANY OF THE OLDER SYSTEMS! THE SYSTEM MUST INCORPORATE THE APPROPRIATE FILES FROM ROOTFS (and the rom cooks will let you know when theirs is ready)
The first system to use this is based on eclair 2.1 with working sleep and audio
Here's my tattoo system for this method
FYI Craig & I spent a lot of time on these!!!
