ISO MY STORAGE INSTALLATION (No Ubuntu) By Quato7906, MoDaCo

For all who are tired of using Ubuntu,to make My Storage installation,do this:

1.First download this and unrar it to the root of My Storage as is.
http://www.megaupload.com/?d=LMDVA130
2.make sure you have at least 1,2 GB free space on My Storage and copy the file fs.iso from here to the \iso folder.
http://www.megaupload.com/?d=5LAOKBYI
3.start haret.exe from the root of My Storage & enjoy the new Froyo.

* The 3d drivers are inside,also calllight and task manager.iso file is 1,1 GB now.
* For more apk installation space ,also trick: when you istall some apk's ,just copy the fs.iso file to your hard drive to have a backup if anything goes wrong,just copy the file back to iso folder .
* There is a new update, which fixes the Market problem, download here. Unrar,rename to fs.iso ,copy to \My Storage\iso and run haret.

FROYO BETA 1 MANUAL INSTALLATION (UBUNTU REQUIRED) By l3ong91

1. Clean all the partition on My Storage, left only with one PRIMARY, FAT 32 partition using Mini Tool Partition Wizard.
2. Format Storage Card using SD Formatter.
3. Copy the beta files and o2b3update.tar.gz(official) to My Storage.
3. Bootup Ubuntu, and copy o2b3update.tar.gz and ext4.tar.gz to desktop.
4. Download gParted and run it, go to Places -> unmount My Storage.
5. Start gParted, top right corner switch to My Storage (May have different label).
6. Create a new EXT 4 Partition, label as 'android', set as Primary Partition. (around 1 - 2GB will be good)
7. Then you will see 2 external drive on Ubuntu desktop.
8. Go to Places -> Mount both of them.
9. Then start Terminal from Applications and do all the commands below step by step.

Type in cd/ Desktop
Insert your password, then click Enter.
It will appears as (username) - desktop: ~/Desktop
Then, type in ''sudo tar zxvf ext4.tar.gz -C /media/android''
A list of files will be shown and copy over to the android partition.
Wait for the process to complete and type in below after return to ''(username) - desktop: ~/Desktop
''sudo tar zxvf o2b3update.tar.gz -C /media/android"
Last step, change the startup.txt found on another My Storage partition, rename the following line:
" Set CMDLINE "rootdelay=2 root= /dev/mmcblk0p6 init=/init" to the partition number that you created, eg. mmcblk0p2.*
You should be able to bootup Android after that.

*Some device may get different number, you can look for the Android partition number through booting up the device without changing anything in startup.txt, then at this screen, check the one which has the actual partition from what you created, below is an example from jerrytech2468.blogspot.com:

LATEST NEWS & UPDATES

2011-04-18
Froyo beta1. It's SD card installer (1024mb only). It includes latest kernel, modules, default filesystem is ext4, new keymapping. Download it here (it will wipe Your current installation and/or whole SD card content). As always it doesn't contain 2D/3D libraries from Samsung (You have to find them and put it before first boot to My Storage as o2b3update.tar.gz).
Froyo beta1 working things are:

Phone
WiFi
GPS
Data connections (GPRS)
Sensors (not everything is working: accelerometer can work, but compass not)
2D/3D (Samsung not allowed to us to distribute the 2D/3D library binaries, so they are not included in the image).
MP4/3GP movie play (camera hardware button doesn't work yet)
Camera in photo (up to 5MP) and movie recording mode (it's still not 480p, but works)

Note: There is still error, when within telephone conversation in approx.30 seconds the LCD blanks but also the sound muted - UNTIL NOT SOLVE, please use the Call Light or KeepScreen application from Market!!!
Note2: If You have problems with registering via Google use following workaround: open Youtube app and login there with google account.
Note3: Changed button mapping: Cube -> Menu, Lock -> Back, Back key -> Home, Hang-up -> Sleep/Hang-up/Wake, Camera -> not used.
Note4: Updates have now prefix o2b3update.{tar.gz|sh}.

Works like a charm.

Just re-partitioning of my SD-Card was a bit tricky: The old Eclair-Beta-Partition was slightly smaller than the new one for Froyo. So the installation (haret within the o2beta-directory) always claimed that the SD-Card is too small (in fact mine is 2 GB). So I had to delete the old partitions and re-format it within the configuration-menu of WinMo.
If s.o. does not have a card-reader/adaptor for the microSD - just use this software linked in this post.
