This was the thread that got Android started on Vogue, use it now for all discussions about kernel development.
The first 400 pages or so are just for historical interest

Hi All,
I've managed to get Linux and Android up and running on Vogue. I've put everything you need at Just download the latest android zip file, copy system.img and data.gz to the root of your sd card and all the other files anywhere you like, run haret.exe, click run and wait a while. This is with my New Zealand Vogue (Branded as OKTA Touch) but it seems to work on all Vogues, (e.g. Sprint Touch). This has no chance of working on any phone without an MSM7X00 CPU. Newer kernels (i.e. those with audio and power collapse) will only work properly if you have an updated radio, I am using 3.42.50 so update to this if you can.

Volume Down is the Menu Button, Volume Up is Back, Power is Home (on recent kernels) and the Camera button displays the keyboard.

This will not damage your phone in any way and is very safe, it doesn't touch the NAND flash memory so can't mess up anything, just soft reset (or press and hold the end call button, then select power down) to restart windows mobile.

To add Android apks, put them into a directory called AndroidApps (must be capitalised correctly) in the root of your SD card.

Update: Touchscreen now works, people have also had some success running this on Kaiser and Titan.

Update: Radio works, see post 187.

Update: Now has an onscreen keyboard, see post 303. (

Update: Can now make and receive audio calls, see post 312.

Update: SMS now works, see post 330.

Update: Backlight can now be turned off and the browser works well.

Update: Better keyboard, working clock and charging, see post 436.

Update: SD driver works, see post 539

Update: New SDK boots, network and calls work, no SMS yet.

Update: New SDK works much better, SMS works, audio works, now has full screen keyboard, see post 867

Update: Power Collapse works, battery meter works.... in fact it's pretty much usable now.

Update: Camera works (with some quirks), network can be connected and disconnected.

Update: Runs the android cupcake release with on screen kbd.

Update: Screen brightness works.

Update: USB works (adb only)

Update: GPU works.

Update: Audio input works.


Note: This will only work on Vogue, Please don't ask about other devices, they should have their own threads.

There is now an irc channel (#vogue-android) on freenode to chat about this port.
