If an new realese is out, I do not know if I have to delete all old stuff and replace it with new realese.
Where are all my setting and apps stored? Apps are ok, but are there any registries or something elsewhere?

I use partitioned sd-card

Most of your settings are held in data.img
You can usually upgrade just by overwriting existing files.

However...

SOMETIMES, a new update might not work with an older data.img. When this happens, you just have to delete data.img and start over. Sorry! And the developers don't always tell you when you need to delete it.

I think most people just get used to a totally clean install and can be fully configured again in 30 mins...

a REALLY useful tip is to make sure you're syncing with google... so your address book, and calender etc are in 'the cloud'... then you can reinstall a clean system and just resync your data with google (works very well)

At the moment, as you say, there are so many new releases, it's a pain. BUT, you really don't need to be updating on every release... if there is a MAJOR fix, you will hear about it on here (believe me!)

With Glemson's update packages, you can sometimes get great new fixes, but you can also get some awful bugs too... ;) That's the gamble you take with taking code right from the developers!

Which SD card works with the android releases?
Hi there,

is there any list, which sdcards verifiable work with the android releases?

So far I read, that "Transcend" cards will not work.
I have a "SanDisk Class2 micro SD HC" card and it does not work either

Which ones will work?

Cheers

I realise that donating to the developer here would be the best thing in an ideal world, however I also think they have such a painstaking process to find and iron out all these bugs that having the help of someone on the inside would speed things up...of course for all I know they are already helping And there is nothing to say that the milestone reward can't be taken by XDA developer.

It seems to me that the Android development for Blackstone is somewhat confused at the moment. I mean I keep an eye on the thread and I still don;t understand which version works best and what files are updated.

This may be my technical naivety, but why is it that we have 3 builds going on, when surely the interface between the Hardware and the Android Kernel will be the same for all Android versions as they are backward compatible?

I think by the time anyone decided to contribute towards a fund for Android on Blackstone most of us will have a new phone anyway (nexus 2?)!

Just a note on SD cards, I tried 2 different 2gb sdhc cards, formatted them a number of times, but no joy, until I formatted them as FAT32, i've had no problems with them since then, sometimes cards are formatted as FAT ( FAT16 ) when purchased.

Interesting.... COULD be a significant factor

I believe it is a crucial factor, since FAT16 does not support long file names, where FAT32 does, as do the various Linux filesystems.

It's easy to overlook this factor since we normally just click on 'Format' without really noticing the file system we're formatting.

Moral of the story is, take a little extra time to check the format options before you proceed.
