What is HiApk?Is it a rom like Cyanogen?
The reason im asking is:because when I turn on "Root Access" in Estrong's File Manager options it asks me to select "Cyanogen Mod" or "HiApk Rom".

I googled and found almost no info-none that was in english anyway.Is HiApk Rom like Asian Cyanogen equivalent or something?

Here is link to it http://www.hiapk.com/bbs/thread-9751-1-1.html ,ES File Manager says that it only supports Cyanogen or HiAPK,it gotta be something big if it compares it to CM bit how come nobody is talkin about it?

I believe it was a rom for the Desire that is based on CM7 source code.

So it doesnt have anything to do with the Epic, just for the people still rocking their Desire's out there.

Lol great post OP . Was a long time evo user and helper with the folks that were needing root and trouble shooting.


I set up a root guide for folks and a parition guide for the other handful of folks on the evo threads.

Now it's a good time to get the threads rollin on the epic someone needs to throw a guide up for the noobs that are new to this.



There is alot more to it then rooting the evo and flashing roms. Still reading up on the threads to see what all the talk is about modems and what not when it comes to roms. The wiki is a bit out dated and needs updating and the roms need to be all thrown together in good order so folks can just go flash happy

Oh and the other thing has a workaround that is posted on page 419.

If you start a thread and people find known bugs/issues or fixes/solutions, take the time to update the first post with the relevant info.

I can't blame someone for not wanting to read 500 pages of posts to find 2 answers when those answers could have been added the original post. Thus making the original post an actually useful guide.


^this!

do not misunderstand, i greatly appreciate what the devs here have done and continue to do. i have found that there is now an air of elitism and snobbery that is really really off-putting, which threw me off because i was used to the hero forums where everyone there was extremely helpful.

I just got the epic about two weeks ago and in existing threads after searching i asked people to point me in the right direction for the best tweaks/mods/guides and my questions are either ignored or scolded, imo thats asinine and just as bad if not worse than noobs spamming questions that have been answered time and again.

Great OP!
My pet peave is all of worthless posts like "flashing now, thanks" just to increase their post count.
If people stayed on topic and realized this is a developer's site and not a chat room, the threads would be a lot cleaner and less crap posts to weed through.

So, I'm not totally nooby, but exactly where I can go to learn absolutely everything about Android (and Ubuntu because Android is based heavily on Ubuntu)? Literally everything. I want to be able to look at a file in the kernel and say, "Hey, I know what that does!" I've been hanging out in the IRC chat, but I'm not learning too much technical detail. I understand how different systems of OSes work, but I'd like to know as much technical detail as I possibly can, right down to the firmware of the parts I'm looking at.

Any suggestions?

EDIT: Shabbypengiun rendered that first line defunct. LOL.

I know this post is old, but I just wanted to inform you of some basics.

1. Android is not based on Ubuntu at all, Ubuntu is a distribution of Linux meaning that it uses (a most likely modified) version of the Linux kernel and contains apps that the Ubuntu team finds useful. Ubuntu is not like Android in terms that the UI of Android is Java based. Also, remember that Ubuntu is not the only Linux distribution. I personally use LMDE to work with Android.

2. As far as the kernel goes, it is pretty self explanitory. If a file has contents that say "audio_incall ", it means that it controlled incall audio. You may also want to be familiar with the names of hardware devices and look at the Githubs of Android developers.

3. If you want detailed help on how to do things, ask on the #epic channel on irc.irondust.net
If you ask specific questions, they will be kindly answered by developers.
