[CAB] GSM&CDMA Project Android Port and Startup Utility [01/23] FRX04 Reference!
PLEASE, FOR THE SAKE OF MY SANITY. READ THE FAQ FIRST FOR QUESTIONS! F.A.Q.
This in NOT an emulator, nor is it a full ROM! Haret.exe closes down Windows, and boots Linux off of your Storage Card to launch Android. To boot back to WinMo all you need to do is reset your handset!
This thread is more specifically for the Rhodium, as this is the handset that I own, and can troubleshoot and test. So if you have specific questions about a different handset, please find your corresponding thread in post #2, however, this build will support the following devices: Diamond, Raphael, Kovsky, Topaz, Rhodium, & Blackstone by using the corresponding startup.txt found in any of the .rar files.

THIS THREAD IS NOT FOR YOU TO COME HERE AND TELL US WHICH OF YOUR FEATURES IS THE MOST WANTED. WE ALL WANT THIS OS COMPLETELY WORKING. PLEASE, BE PATIENT LIKE THE REST OF US.
If you think you need to post a question in this thread: READ THROUGH POST#2, AND USE THE SEARCH TOOL FIRST!!!! Most questions have already been answered in this thread. I don't mind answering GOOD questions, but I really hate people asking the same questions over and over, ESPECIALLY when the answer is only a few pages before your post. DONT BE LAZY, THIS FORUM IS FOR DEVELOPMENT, NOT CUSTOMER SERVICE.
This package will work on other MSM devices however, you may have some stability and functionality issues. If you are having issues with another device, other than the RHODIUM, check the dedicated forum. Most users on this specific thread only own a Rhodium, so we cannot test/troubleshoot other handsets!!
Dedicated thread For GSM Diamond/Raphael users using xdandroid
First off, there is an insanely huge list of guys who are responsible for making this possible. Compared to what they do I am just a monkey punching a keyboard. THANKS DEVS
Thanks to phhusson, dzo, zenulator, Chamonix, Stinebd, Makkonen, MrPippy, cr2, Markinus, WisTilt2, Babijoee and anyone else forgotten!
Thanks to scepterr for the free speedy file hosting!!! Need hosting for an XDA project? Ask him!
Just a quick note that the 'rhod210' keymap (which is default in this build) should be pretty OK for almost all Rhodiums, unless you have an AZERTY layout or an odd European one with lots of accented letters mapped to Fn key combos. You can use Fn+Y to get the 'pipe' symbol | (may seem useless to many of you, but for those of us who poke around at consoles a lot it's invaluable :>). You can use Fn+W to get the UK pound currency symbol and Fn+E to get the Euro currency symbol - these keys are labelled on some Rhodiums so I figured I'd just implement it for all Rhodiums, as it may come in handy sometime.
if you have an odd keyboard layout but just want to use this build, the keys should behave like the layout pictured here:
I'm trying to do something about wifi ATM with the kernel guys, but it's not simple. The problem is the Rhodium uses a completely different chip than most other phones, for wifi / Bluetooth (it uses a Broadcom BCM4325). No-one's got anything at all out of that chip yet.
Good show.. Thanks for making XDANDROID accessible to everyone.
BTW, Wifi not working at this time creates a good "shutdown/reboot" opportunity for now. The Shutdown option in Android does not seem to be working yet and so was interested in a way to shutdown/reset the phone without a "soft reset" poke after removing the back cover.
Found this by accident:
Settings->Wireless & Network Settings->Wifi (Click to Enable Wifi) and boom in a few seconds, the phone is off like a light.. Hit the power button on top and we have a full reboot..
Edit: The Wifi crash is fixed in the 02/03/10 build mentioned at the top of this thread. So need to open the back cover to reboot..
HTC One X (w/2xKrait S4) ROMs: Stock AT&T (still!?!)
??Backup??: SGS2 Skyrocket, Nexus S, Tilt2 (Rhodium) XDA Rocks!!!
The battery style in stock Android looks pretty dull. It doesn’t … more
