Froyo system images are here:

To install, rename the system-froyo-timestamp.tgz file to androidinstall.tgz and
put it in /andboot on your sdcard.

This needs a recent 320x240 froyo kernel.

The git repository for this build is here:

You can see the latest changes by looking at the individual git change logs.
The git repo for most of the device setup is here:;a=summary

You can compile it yourself by doing:
repo init -u git:// -b froyo
repo sync
. build/
lunch eu_vogue-userdebug      (use "lunch full_vogue-userdebug" for all languages or "lunch us_vogue-userdebug" for only english and spanish)
make       (use make -j 6 if you have 4 cores)
read for instructions on setting up repo and git.

It needs to download over 2G of data and will take a few hours to compile.

I July 2010 I gave a talk about porting android, my slides are available here:
With a demo of Froyo here:

Calls and sms should probably work but it's not really ready for use yet. This is a very minimal image without any google apps just to show that it works.

You will need the 320x240 eclair kernel from today to test this because it does some new things with the 2D graphics driver.

Whoa!!!! You're starting it again!
You are great man!

Hi Dzo, tried froyo on my kaiser, it can boot into Android. While taking a call, the display become white and after that, my sim card broken. Poor me ! Wating for your fix. (At that time, try to contact network carrier to get back my sim).

first boot, it's freeze with black screen
so i remove new zimage 25.06 and start again with old zimage 22.06

noticeable change compare to Mynís Warm Eclair - [RLS1 - 06/17/2010]

- very fast boot
- has problem with sdcard, says: no sdcard found
- camera not working, ooooooh
- app start first normal like Mynís Warm Eclair
- but reopen apps start immediately
eg. phone app, first start 5 sec, second start 1 sec, another small apps start less then 1 sec
- small fonts are clearly recognizable

orbit2 xda (pola200)
haret + zimage 22.06
Mynís Warm Eclair - [RLS1 - 06/17/2010]

Just a minute ago I was wondering if Froyo will be here. Great news =)
Tried this build too, nothing except calls is working, but no black or white screens and hangs (pola100 actually, but I think that's ok for this thread, isn't it?), it runs definitely fast. If this is just a start, then the result in releases is very promising. Thanks dzo and all the devs who take part in here.
