Default {ROM-DEV} FrOyO-EVO

This is mainly a proof of concept rom i cooked up for good measure of root. thanx goes to maejrep for his help and testing.

this rom was just a dirty kang of the Nexus One update from google. for the most part its usable. meaning most things work. the down fall are the thing that dont.

What works:
- basic android
- JIT of course
- A2SD google style
- data
- phone
- hw3d

What doesnt work:
- cameras < i believe that it may be possible to fix at least the main cam. will work on this first
- mms < send can be fixed i know for sure. will come in next build
- 4G DATA < maejrep was working on this a bit. still not sure how 4G works just yet. i will look into it
- tethering < at the moment, its no dice

Info and the link:

It works If you can do without camera (and the other things), it's usable, and works great.

Really curious about how this performs... anyone done a linpack benchmark yet? Or Quadrant? Also, do the tethering features work?

Hell, if this runs just as good as it does with the N1 -- and all I'm sacrificing is the camera, and 4G (which is flaky here anyway) -- I might be running this on day one!

Linpack got a 41, and sorry I don't remember what the Quadrant score was.

Oh right, tethering was the other thing that wasn't working... Toast should update his post
IIRC, the error was something to do with "softap", but I didn't spend a lot of time looking at it. I'll try to dive in to it this weekend to see if I can track it down

So, I did all the rooting / evo recovery stuff... and it seemed to be fine...

Did a wipe, then flashed this rom...

now it's got a picture of a phone and a Triangle with ! in the middle... I can get into the HTC recovery, but not sure how to get into the other recovery.
Any suggestions?

C:\AndroidSDK\tools>adb logcat
- waiting for device -
- exec '/system/bin/sh' failed: Permission denied (13) -


Got out of that "loop" by running the evo-recovery bat file, trying it again...

Same thing...

I'm having problems too. Seems the install likes to abort at line 36 for me. Still trying to figure it out.

Code:
Select Code
Copying files...
E:Can't symlink /system/bin/reboot
E:Failure at line 36:
symlink toolbox SYSTEM:bin/reboot

Installation aborted.
Tried many different ways, including wiping everything and wiping nothing.

Getting that too. It only happens after an unsuccessful flash for me. A quick reboot back into recovery returns it back to normal though (through 'adb reboot recovery' then executing the script again)
