I downloaded the xdandroid 2.2 cab file. I installed it on my 8gb micro sd card (fat32) but during the installation it says that it can´t install the main icon and after the installation I can´t find the Android Icon in the menu folder.

I manged to get 2.2 working on my blackstone, everything seams to be working decent, but I would really like to change the button on the top[that you use to wake up] so that it also locks the device instead of the hangup button. Is the a settings app you can download, or is there anything that can be done about this???

I've downloaded XDAndroid 2.2 FRX.01 for my GSM Raphael. Everything is fine except physical keyboard: I can't find a way to switch hardware keyboard layout (or select several layouts i need). Tried to seach but didn't find layout for Russia in repo.

Hmm the answer to this question has probably been answered or at least raised.

Why do i have to use an SD Card to load android, can't i just install the CAB file in a folder on the physical device and execute from that folder?

The only problem i can see is the safety/ease of being able to delete everything off the SD Card easily but i would like to hear more about it..

My SD Card has just been broken when some-one decided to try and upload photo's from the scanner they "accidently" fell into the printer and cracked my card.. Have to buy a new one that's all..

how come they are so far in development on Android for HTC Touch and not our Blackstones? Isn't HTC Touch much weaker? They have NAND and everything, even sense ROMs

Hello all...

Has there been an Android release where the FM Radio is working on our Blackstones?

Any info would be appreciated.

Thank you!
