Haykuro's SPL and radio

I am in Ubuntu, copied the app_s to my ext2 partition, placed in my fat32 partition, renamed to (of course). Wiped, applied update, let it load (took about 1-2 minutes) then went through the setup.

I never had app2sd working since Hero beta 1 was out

H, you've topped yourself so many times and wowed everyone with what you can accomplish, take a well deserved summer vacation. The rest of the community can work on getting this rom in 100% working order.

Can't wait to dive into this!

Download the iso file. Doubleclick on it, it will write to CD (I think. I put it o the CD without thinking, so I know it was that easy, but use your good judgement and curiosity if you need to here)

Once the CD is created, power down your PC, leave the CD in the drive and let your PC boot from the CD drive. (if it doesn't, google: how to boot from CD)

In the System menu, run Partition Manager (the app is called GParted, but it's not listed as that in this particular menu)

Put your sd card in an adapter and plug it into your machine. Find your sd card by size. Be careful not to partition your hard drive. Nothing will blow up, unless your HD is really full - the process doesn't overwrite anything if used properly. Just make sure it's your SD card. Take all your other cards out of your PC (almost partitioned my Sony Mem stick....)

Create two partitions. There are buttons and menus that say "create partition, so click away and find them, and you're good to go. Not hard. "The first needs to be the Fat32 and about a gig less than the size of your card. The second needs to be about a gig (less than 1.5, I hear). My card is 16 gb, so I did a 14g FAT32, and a 1.5g ext2, the rest was math crap that doesn't add up (don't ask, you don't want to know.) So For an 8 gig card, make a 6.5g partition and a 1.1g, or whatever the remainder is, ext2. Then format the first/big partition to FAT32, the second to EXT2

Click the green check to complete the tasks you've set out for your machine to do.

If I'm not mistaken, this should also work on a Mac.

Granted, you might need to poke around a bit if I missed something, but that's the bones of it, and it really is that easy.

I'll be trying that tomorrow.
I'm collating all the information and guide links I can and placing them with the Android ROM Build Database at Just Android Builds.
I thought it might be nice to get everything in one location instead of having to hunt through a thread thats gonna breakk the servers by morning.....LOL.

Thanks again H

Okay I decided to read the log and found out what is the problem with my recovery looping.

"E: Can't chown/mod /system/xbin (not such file or dir)
E: Failure at line 12: set_perm_recursive 0 2000 0755 06755 SYSTEM:xbin
installation aborted."
