Default [Android] KaiserDroid eclair 2.1 WIFI, GPS NAND/HaRET also for Vogue, Polaris Beta1.1

First off this would not be possible without the work of many devs in many places. Some of the builds that have really helped get this done:

The base build I started with:
[Android] Eclair 2.1 by mssmison

Builds/Devs that helped me get this far:
polymod 2.1 alpha 4 by polyrhythmic that is itself is based on openeclair 1.1.5
dzo, wesgarner, ctso, many more who have contributed to openeclair

Please try both of these and My build and post your results, I want to know what works and what doesn't. It also will help to know what works better on whose build.

Here it is folks Android running from NAND on your kaiser/tilt!

What works:
WIFI - you no longer need a calibration file from Windows Mobile.
GPS
Phone
Sleep
Battery - See here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&postcount=126

What doesn't:
Bluetooth? I have random results still
Camera
Youtube
Jbed - read thread for working install and instructions

I am in no way liable for whatever may happen to you or your phone!
This will erase/replace windows mobile.

How to get it:

Step one:
If you do not have the latest nbh get dzo's from here:
http://it029000.massey.ac.nz/vogue/files/?C=M;O=D
or vilord's
http://sourceforge.net/projects/androidhtc/files/
and flash it to your phone.

Step two:
Perform a hard reset on the phone, then remove the battery.

Step three:
Download my package and place the androidinstall.tar in the andboot folder on the root of your sd card.
Old link for reference only -Version 1.0
Old link for reference only -Version 1.1 Update Patch
Pre-Patched Version 1.1
Place your sd card in your phone put the battery back in and power it on.
Watch the screen and once it tells you to press and hold the D-Pad center button (do it fast!).
Choose the install option and answer "Yes" when it asks to clear your data.

Step four:
Choose quit and wait for the big green android!
If you get a second google account setup screen after entering your info once just hit the home button or reboot.

*notes*
Starting wifi during the initial setup works but the setup app FC's and goes back to the start wifi screen. The wifi actually does start but you cannot choose a network until you complete setup.

You must have a sd card to boot (not with vilord's kernel)

LCD density is set to 160 as I believe with a 320x480 nbh yields the best usability and market selection.

I the screen flips the wrong way instead of going back to portrait mode open "spare parts" and uncheck "launcher rotation"
(you can also go to Settings "Sound and Display" and uncheck Orientation")

(Works on polaris and vogue as well)

Typo in your link, looks like it's missing the "h" at the beginning (thanks to your sig for the clue haha). I'm downloading it now, going to try it out and report back with the results.

Just got it setup, some things I've noticed so far:
  • Setup Wizard got stuck in an infinite loop right after setting up my Google Account. It signed me in, started syncing just fine, but the next screen asked me to setup a Google Account again. Signing in led me to another Google Account setup page. A reboot fixes this though.
  • Might want to note that your build.prop has the lcd.density set to 160, most NAND builds I've ran have had it set to 120 or 113 or had a choice.
  • So far it's been a lot faster than other Eclair builds I've tried! Awesome work!

Thanks for the feedback, I'll add some more notes to the 1st post.
I don't normally have a sim in until after I get it setup and tested so I just skip the initial setup so i must have missed that.

How does the speed of this build compare to polyrhythmic's? I tried that and unfortunately it was unbearably slow even off NAND. I guess it's back to WinMo for a little while
  • Google Glass - #TeamShale
  • Nexus 5 - White - 16GB
  • Nexus 7 - White - Google I/O Edition
  • HP TouchPad 32GB
LG Optimus G E970, Galaxy Nexus GSM, HTC HD2 T9193, Samsung Galaxy S I9000M 'Bell Vibrant', HTC Tilt

I may be a little biased but I would use this as my only phone, comparable to openeclair on my mytouch without the swap turned on.

Do not PM me for help trying to get one of my mods to work.
That's what the threads are for. I posted the threads so you can see what I did, not as an advertisement that I will do it for you.
