Just download haret.exe, zImage, initrd-android and default.txt, copy them to your phone, run haret.exe, click run and wait a while. The touchscreen doesn't work yet but the buttons should, Volume up/down are the return and menu keys. This is with my NZ Vogue (Branded as OKTA Touch) other versions may or may not work, let me know if it works for you.
this is really pretty incredible i think.
my question is...do you have the capability to get this working? well, thats not quite what i mean. what i mean is, is Android in a late/good/stable enough stage that even assuming we had the touchscreen working and the radio working...could it do anything?
i ask this because i am fascinated by this. but i dont want to get myself over excited if all we will ever be able to do with it is look at it until the real android is released.
so i guess my question could also be said like this: Is it more help for you and your success we are waiting/hoping for, or is it the real release of android we are hoping for.
you seem to be pretty knowledgeable about this in my opinion, so i figure if it was up to us you could do it. but even assuming you could, would we still just be waiting for a newer release of android to be able to do anything with it? ie calendar, txt messaging, multimedia, internet, etc.. (i realize these are prob a way off)
thanks a lot! (this is COOL
