Installing Android into Kaiser NAND for dummies. !!WARNING THIS WILL ERASE DATA ON YOUR PHONE!!
Does your Kaiser already have HardSPL? If not then get that done.
Does your Kaiser have a relatively new radio rom? If not then get one.
Recommended to have 1.70.xx.xx and up.
Install a Android kernel. So far the best is kallt_kaffe's
. You will need to hex edit it. Open the .nbh file with iHex and scroll down till you see this.
It's numbered so look on the left side until you see 1350. Then look on the right for these phrases. They'll look like run on sentences, that's normal.
hw3d.version=1 <== 1 for Eclair and 0 for Donut based Android builds
board-kaiser-keypad.atttilt=2 <== Follow the table bellow for keyboard layout.
board-kaiser-keypad.atttilt=1 AT&T tilt
board-kaiser-keypad.atttilt=2 Nordic (Swedish, Norwegian, Danish, Finnish)
board-kaiser-keypad.atttilt=3 azerty (French)
board-kaiser-keypad.atttilt=4 qwertz (German
board-htckaiser.panel_type=1 <== Change this to 1,2, or 3. If your screen looks messed up, then change it to another value. I think for most Kaiser users it's 2.
When you're done editing the .nbh, save it and rename it to KAISimg.nbh and place it on you memory card. You may want to put the KAISDIAG.NBH
, but I've found it not necessary.
Place the SD into your Kaiser and hold the Power button and camera button down, then take your stylus and hit the reset button. Follow the instructions on the screen to flash your Kaiser.
!!WARNING ALL DATA ON YOUR PHONE WILL BE LOST!!
Download your favorite Android build. I use Incubus26Jc's Super Eclair
, but you can use anyone you want.
On your SD card make a folder called andboot and place the androidinstall file in there.
Place the SD card in your phone and power on your Kaiser. When you see text on your screen hold down the D-pad. D-pad is that button in the center of your up, down, left, right buttons. Keep holding down the D-pad until you see something like this appear on your screen.
Select sys on NAND, then data on NAND. Once done then select Install system and wait for it to finish. Once it's done select quit and it'll begin booting into Android.
Some Android builds require you to flash a androidupdate file to fix certain problems, like Wifi. Place this file into your andboot folder on your SD and hold the D-pad down to get the menu, like you did to install Android. Select Install Update and after that's done then select Fix Permissions. Always gotta fix permissions when installing updates.
The kernel can be flashed without destroying your Android installation, if there's an updated kernel in the future.
