So I noticed there wasnt any tutorial on how to install it and you just had to search all the posts in the froyo x thread to figure it out. Now I have done it this way.Im sure there are tons of other ways.But this one workes for me and I just want to share it. I will try to keep it up to date so everybody can install android on their blackstone.

All credits to Tiad8 and other developers this is not my build!

special thanks to TRNSLN who helped me install froyo so I can help you

Anyway first things first. Is this something for me to use daily? well here is your change to figure out.

My homescreen+menu+latitude

proof the camera works
Sample video(shot with blackstone) (embed doesnt work)
screenshot camera app:

market =Ok!
latitude =Ok!
Headphones =Ok!
messaging/calling(call/receive) =Ok!
Bluetooth =testing..
Battery =10/11 hour
Usb =No (at least not with standard app, there have been reports of usb via other program havent tested it yet)
Chapters of this tutorial:
[1]Formatting SD card
[2]Installing Froyo X red
[3]Installing Camera
[4]Finishing up

1 Froyo X Red
2 kernel+libs
3 Haret+Startup.txt-Ts-Calibration
4 If having problems with booting android try this startup.txt
[1]Formatting SD card

Easy as pie.
put your memory card in a sd card reader (your blackstone will do fine) and plug it in your pc/laptop.
open My pc and look for your memory card and right click on it.
Click Format

make sure FAT32 is selected and click ok

Ok great Sd card is formatted and ready to go. no lets move on..

[B][2]Installing froyo X Red /B]
ok first things first download Froyo X Red and Haret+Startup.txt-Ts-Calibration.
Then unpack Froyo X Red to the root of your memory card(root means on your memory card not in an folder on your memory card)

Then open up Haret+Startup.txt-Ts-Calibration and copy all the files to the root of your memory card.

Now unmount your Blackstone or Sd card reader from your pc.Put the Sd card in your blackstone(if it isnt already there) navigate to your storage card and open the file Haret

Now it shoud just give you a bunch of text and a little linux penguin let it load for a while(note: It coud take some minutes so dont think it wont boot)

it shoud boot. now follow the set-up and sync your google account.then turn off your blackstone and reboot it boots in windows mobile again.when its in windows mobile go to the next step!

[3]Installing Camera
so android working accordingly everything set up but still no camera..
its time to change that

download kernel+libs

simply unpack the zip to your memory card..
overwrite zImage

thats that your done. enjoy android with working camera!
[4]Finishing up

this isnt really a neccesary step but I do recommend it.

open up spare parts and set the Window animation and Transition animation to Fast

and your done! have fun with your brand new Android phone..
