I wonder if anyone has it. I wonder if my root package will work on their phone - should be same hardware a slightly different Android build... Would be cool to know! Anyone?
Actually, I have that phone and your rooted package works fine with it.
In fact, before applying your package, when I started the phone, before having the "Android" logo, Tux
And after "upgrade", this is now the DSTL1 logo.
One thing however is that the original kernel version was more recent (something like septembre 2009 instead of august. I don't remember exactelly).
So, that's not a big difference though. And actually, I don't see any "regression".
But at least now, I can set up my phone in some other language than English (which was the only provided language in the N21 version). And I hope to be able to do some other cool stuffs soon ;)
For info, the bundle with the N21 is the minimum : 1 battery, 1Go mini-SD card, charger and USB cable (whereas official General Mobile comes with 2 batteries, a greater miniSD + its adapter to SD format, and a leather case).
No CD provided. So, to use the SDK with that phone, you need to use the driver which is available on the General Mobile website.
And as far as I know, N21 is exactly the same as the General Mobile. Actually, it is the same company that builds those 2 phones. It is just a question of branding and of market.
