Installation & Updating:
Download the build to your pc.
1. americanandroid.7z -> unzip!
2. copy folder unzipped\AmeriCanAndroid\Android -> to -> \sdcard\Android
(COPY THE WHOLE FOLDER.. NOT JUST INDIVIDUAL FILES!!!!!!)
(!If you are UPDATING.. choose overwrite when prompted - no need to delete anything!)
3. in winmo, run clrcad.exe and haret.exe in the \storage card\Android\ folder. OR
(alternatively install exceller bootloader for winmo for one click or AUTO launch of Android OS)
first boot always takes a long time be patient, it will work, and future boots do not take as long.
bkup2sdext users read below
- To enable backup of apps and data to your sd-ext partition edit /system/build.prop change
@ the bottom aca.bkup2sdext.enable to =1 (change back to 0 to disable)
*to enable restore of /data/data edit /system/etc/shutdown.d/02shutdown and add data after
for i in app app-private so you end up with
for i in app app-private data;
save, then reboot.
-!! During day to day use; it is MOST important to SHUTDOWN and not pull batt,
as this is when your data gets backed up to the sd-ext partition.. !!
- Your device will auto restart after about 5 to 10 minutes from when android starts loading.
This shut down is required to complete the restore of existing data to a new build.
