[QUOTE=farukb;15628656]i had a sod and now i can't boot,the animation just keeps looping...hw buttons vibrate then i touch them,but do not work....power button doesn't work either

happened to me once before,but i don't know what i did to solve it...i maybe deleted the data.img

this time i tried to wipe and format the partition,didn't help
i tried with fresh files (except for the data.img) but still nothing...

@arrrghhh: wanna swap with me for your rhodium,if you want it badly?

@werald and others:if we are going to donate a device,it'd be best to donate it do a dev,maybe stinebd,don't know[/Q

if stinebd is the one to do it for us then maybe some one should ask him.......then we can get the ball rolling for our blackstone......

Huh... you can rename the data.img to data.img.bak or whatever and boot again to at least rule that out. Haven't had that happen.

LOL I'd like to help you guys out but I'm not sure I'd want to giveup my RHOD... perhaps my tester RHOD, but my main one is tied to my Sprint account and a GSM BLAC would be pretty useless to me .

I wouldn't mind testing on it, but you're right a dev would be better - kernel dev would probably help that device more than any other. Not sure who would be willing to accept it to fix it up, but I've coordinated several donations. None have gone awry.

phh & babijoee aren't really active any longer. stinebd doesn't have much time, and isn't a kernel dev.

What has gone awry? Feel free to respond via PM, but like I said I've coordinated several donations and haven't had a single issue - other than perhaps lengthy ship times .

Blackstone user...
Hey guys,

Official blackstone user here. Tried putting the Gingerbread 2.3.3 build on there. Started like a charm. Besides bluetooth not working (as mentioned), I went to fiddle around with it some more. I tried typing some stuff however, that ended up in NOT showing the keyboard completely. It sort of has a total of 3mm worth of keyboard available. Not actually showing any keys.

Anybody know why that is? Is that a fault in the build or am I just not doing something right?

Am trying this Blackstone with Android for a month or so just till I get a Samsung Galaxy S2 with 2.3.4 on it.

Regards,

Remon

You noticed the BT caveat, but somehow missed this?

Swype was recommended, as was another one in that link on the second post...

Actually saw that like 10 minutes after posting it.. I know, RTFM. Tried the first suggested one, that one is absolute ****. Going to try the Swype one, but it's not available on Android Market.. Any suggestions on where to find it? Or let me guess, google and thou shalt find?

lol. Soft kbd works fine for me, but I don't have a BLAC - not sure why it doesn't work OOB on that device...

At any rate, I have no clue how to get Swype. Someone earlier said you have to sign up for some beta test or smth? I've never used it, couldn't get used to it. I prefer using the real kbd... which you folks don't have .
