I have been working on getting vanilla android to work on the Tattoo as I am not a big fan of all the modifications that HTC have done to their rom.
I am now launching the first usable version of the rom.
Phone calls and sms work, so does wifi, camera, gps and sensors.( thanks to fyodor)
Camera works only in android 1.6 I'll try it in 1.5 latter on today.
All aplications work.
Bluetooth and fm radio aren't working yet.
For the next release I'll be focusing on getting bluetooth to work.
The rom comes in two flavours :
ANDROID 1.5
ANDROID 1.6

So I have managed to build a rom that boots into vanilla 1.6 but I'm having trouble with the touch screen calibration. I may be doing the init.rc modifcation incorectly.

Code:
 137

this should be 120 i guess... try it & let us know what is the result....

They are the same modifications to init.rc that worked for the 2.1 rom but have no effect what so ever for 1.6 .
I might be missing something. I extract the boot.img and I add that line to the end of the init.rc file. Should I be doing something else too?
I'll try with 120 once I'm sure I'm editing it corectly.

Code:
# write Calibration for Tattoo
write /sys/class/input/input1/calibration 8
write /sys/class/input/input1/calibration_points 55,850,173,855,515,493,851,132,166,137
Here is version 0.001. mirror
Test it at your own risk.
I'm open to any help and ideas.

That whould be great.
I'm have the same thoughs has you, concerning to the HTC stuff...
Whouldn't be more easy to reverse the offcial rom?

cheers

You could start with the values from the stock HTC rom

Thanks mainfram3. Just got touchscreen to work.
I'm uploading now version 0.002.
So it seems that camera doesn't work, wifi, bluetooth and gps.
I suspect some would be fixed in the build.prop maybe someone else can check it out too. I'm calling it a night.
The rom feels very fast and finally a grey task bar.
Take it for a spin and see how it goes.

To fix WiFi you need to compile the proper driver against your kernel source or use HTCs kernel + their wlan.ko.
For bluetooth take a look at the files in /system/etc.
And gps is related to libgps.so

I am using the HTC kernel + their wlan.ko and I'm still not getting any results.
