mattc Leo + Froyo w/Sense 1.8

Quick Changes:
  1. New EVO kernel
  2. Wifi tethering now works
  3. Light sensor works
  4. PPP reliability improved dramatically
  5. No more hard freezes switching from Wifi to mobile data
  6. MMS size fixed for T-Mobile US
  7. Touch screen and G-Sensor freezes practically eliminated
  8. Green line in YouTube HQ is gone, picture quality is improved

Based on the official HTC Desire Froyo update.

READ THIS!! You will see a strange screen at boot. It may have different images or lines in black/white and will appear to be frozen. This is normal, just be patient and it will move past this. Also, there is no RMNET - not even an option - for this build. PPP is stable and no longer freezes.

Random notes on the build:
  • Kernel is not overclockable. You can always replace with an overclockable kernel if you wish.
  • On PPP build, make sure all of your APN settings are correct. It may not work if they are not.

  1. Download zip file.
  2. Extract contents of zip file into a folder on your SD card named 'Android'.
  3. Using a file explorer in Windows Mobile, inside the 'Android' folder run CLRCAD.exe. Don't worry, it will appear to do nothing, that is normal.
  4. Run Haret.exe.
  5. Enjoy Android.

Known problems:
It is easier to list what I know doesn't work.
  1. Certain apps from the market won't install. Neocore is one for example. You have 2 options to get them to work. A) Copy the .apk to your SD card then run it from your phone or B) Unmount your SD card first (Settings > SD Card > Unmount SD Card).
  2. Notification LEDs are flaky, sometimes work, sometimes not
  3. Camera flashes prematurely.

Some items you may want that are indeed WORKING!
  1. Bluetooth - Works completely on my Ford Sync system. A2DP, streaming audio, answering and ending calls, etc. BT Keyboards don't work yet.
  2. Camera
  3. 3G. I get ~1000kbps down in Ft Worth. My EDGE speeds have increased in RC1.4.
  4. WIFI. Confirmed working with WEP and WPA.
  5. GPS. Takes some time to pickup on first use, works great.
  6. SIM contacts are working. (edit: some people have had issues, I have not).
  7. I have included Automount (a free app) to mount your SD Card. Simply open Automount, set it to mount, then plug in your USB cable.
  8. FM Radio
  9. Camcorder!

Change log:

  1. New EVO kernel
  2. Wifi tethering now works
  3. Light sensor works
  4. PPP reliability improved dramatically
  5. No more hard freezes switching from Wifi to mobile data
  6. MMS size fixed for T-Mobile US
  7. Touch screen and G-Sensor freezes practically eliminated

  1. Added EVO and Nexus cam interfaces. User can choose which to use.
  2. Default sense wallpaper now works. Live and static.
  3. Voice dialer added, works over bluetooth.
  4. New base for better app/market stability.
  5. PPP and RMNET versions will be available without having to patch anything.
  6. More default APN some corrected including TMOUS.
  7. Root file system will allow easier updating in the future.
  8. Switched to kernel from git. No overclocking. You can install any other kernel you wish.
  9. Improved WIFI performance.

  • Bluetooth is working again.
  • Apps requiring SU are now working again. SetCPU and Titanium have both been tested.
  • Overclocking and underclocking work now.
  • Battery life has been improved.
  • Media folder added for missing ringtones and notifications.
  • Added Adobe Flash
  • Random freezes should be fixed. You may get a hard freeze on first boot.
  • PPP reliability improved.

  • Flashlight now works on all 3 levels. No need for market flashlight app.
  • Switched from RMNET to PPP data. Results are more reliable connection and faster upload speeds.
  • 1GB data store. This rootfs.img is *NOT* compatible with any others.
  • USB connections are now recognized as usb. You should get a usb menu upon plug-in.
  • 5MP camera with standard def camcorder. Camera app has improved picture quality and flash over previous build.

  1. Using new kernel that overclocks and has full ram.
  2. Added support for LED keypad lights.
  3. Amber charging and notification lights work occasionally but don't count on them.

  1. Speed increased dramatically with new kernel.
  2. Added EVO camcorder and camera app, allows pictures and recording via onscreen button.

  1. Used official OTA Froyo update for Desire. This added a speed increase.
  2. Added Cotulla's 03-08 kernel.
    a. Fixed issues with sharp panel
    b. Increased stability of I2C
    c. increased touch screen ratio
    d. Fixed volume level
    e. Volume can be changed during call
    f. Some work under removing apt voice during calls
    g. Program soft reset should work now
  3. Added USB Automount program to easily mount SD card within Android.
  4. Data.img increased to 512MB for added app storage.
  5. Market speed is increased significantly.
  6. Bluetooth support adjusted, may add more support. Need testers. (Not keyboard support).

  1. Fix for proximity sensor killing phone issue.
  2. Updated Bluetooth. This may fix some issues.
  3. Added Froyo default keyboard w/voice input. To activate, long press in any text input field, choose 'Input Method', choose 'Android keyboard'. You will see a microphone button, push it to use voice input. This keyboard also has the "swipe up" feature standard in Froyo.
  4. Added Voice Dialer and Voice Search apps. They work great.

  1. Added Cotulla's and dan1j3l's GPS fix. I don't think it has been tested 100% so just know it is experimental right now. Thanks to the devs for getting us that!
  2. Cleaned some unnecessary files to (hopefully) improve speed a little.
  3. Testing improved stability of the filesystem. If you transfer files to your device (music, etc.) as a USB device, make sure to safely eject the device before removing the USB cable. If you improperly remove the device, you may experience some strange issues.

Great mod but was unable to get the bluetooth headset working with my jawbone icon. The A2DP worked for music, but not the phone audio. Will try on my Lexus to see if the phone headset works in there, will report back.
