hey
I got the files to boot but it won't go to the main os, I see the hero gif and the htc loader but it doesn't boot beyond that point. Any pointers? edit
in fact all it does is boot htc logo then black screen then hero gif then htc logo black screen then hero gif
lather rinse repeat

try the new package it's better

anyway feel free to do an installer I will add it to the 1st post with credits to you too of course

no, it can be used on RAPH/BLAC/TOPAZ/RHOD, it's already tested on blac, raph and rhod and reported that the OS boots fine

modules.xxx.xx - additional files required by kernel.
initrd.gz <--- unclear what this is
system.sqsh <--- what IS this actually storing.... is it Android or is it customisation or is it both??
rootfs.img <--- what's this?
conf\xxx.conf <---- this is also unclear

Now don't get me wrong, conf is clear that it's helping the OS know where certain partitions are, and how to behave in terms of pagefiles etc etc, but the naming convention isn't clear or why it changes name (why's it not android.conf?)

Any info on this would be superb since I'd like to add it to my FAQ.

zImage - linux kernel (the absolute 'hub' of the linux OS)<= right
modules.xxx.xx - additional files required by kernel.<= contain drivers and modules it's an extension to the kernel as the actual kernel can't exceed 3Mb
initrd.gz <--- unclear what this is<= initial boot sequence
rootfs.img <--- what's this?<= the filesystem core structure, contain specific devices parameters like which driver to load to which device
system.sqsh <--- what IS this actually storing.... is it Android or is it customisation or is it both??<= this is the Android OS filesystem it contains customisation too

conf\xxx.conf <---- this is also unclear<= contains swap and memory usage partition

hope this help you

cheers

I have a boot
if you have the android apps folder remove it
I'm on a touch pro 2 world but strange thing is that while it loads I don't get hero build I get something else
actually it began to look like 1.6 and it still does
I'm not sure even though I have a boot I don't have widgets or anything
I'll post screen shots
