I am continuing ajeet17181's work on bringing a working Android build to our Windows Mobile phone, the LG Fathom. As of this moment I am only working on the Kernel, where most of the fixes need to be worked on, so let's get to it, shall we?
Download any of the following Android versions:
Gingerbread 2.3.7 (includes Kernel build #119)-
DOWNLOAD "einsteinecker_android.rar" (thanks to pizzaboy192 for hosting)
alternate link (untested upload)
-Limited Bluetooth functionality
What doesn't work:
-SD card has a low chance of being mounted.
Latest Cyanogenmod Nov 26, 2012-
Cyanogenmod with working audio fix, updated link August 28 2013:
(split into 2 parts because my internet kept cutting it off)
Thanks to www2287. Read this post for more info.
In some cases, the usual Google apps aren't built into the rom. Read this or this on how to get them.
Unsupported Android builds
ajeet's LG Fathom Gingerbread 2.3.7
-Real USB support.
What doesn't work:
-D-pad is not aligned correctly.
-Cannot power off from shutdown menu.
-Incredible power drain. This is caused by the phone remaining at a high mhz without any way to fix it. Even if you use SetCPU to change the governor, the voltage looks like it remains the same so power drains even at 245mhz!
-No multimedia. And by that I mean no gaming for you, anything 3D is not even enabled on the kernel.
-Cannot receive calls
-No light sensor

Cyanogen March 2012 build
Download here. from www2287. This build is not a final build, that means many things are broken in it.
Android 2.2 Froyo
Download here (NOTE: Due to Froyo not working in some areas, I will not provide support for it)
LATEST KERNEL: (March 14 2013)
ReRun March 13 2013: New compiling method to fix several bugs. Read this post for more info.
Rerun kernel build #120
Rerun kernel build #119 (This kernel is a restart of my previous work. I basically started over from scratch and compiled it well over 100 times to find an acceptable solution to the battery issue.)
(Can't type the "." symbol? Download this.)
https://github.com/ajeet17181/fathom-kernel Note: this source is broken, and since I have heavily modified it, wait for me to upload full source someday.
-Same as usual, run clrcad.exe about 5 times, then click on "haret" .exe file. The kernel will take a while to boot, so let it sit.
Current developments: Next phase of development will focus on the phone side (calls, sms, data). Because I am in a GSM country, I will be focusing on that.Preparing your phone to enable 3G internet on Android
Now that you have the ROM, you will need to edit your phone to enable 3G internet. Download this: http://www.mediafire.com/?azm89r85x6k2hhz (link thanks to da_reeseboy here.)
Please read the .txt inside the LGNPST archive on how to install. I can't help in that regard as I too funked my install until I undid everything and followed the txt file
After you set that up, download this: https://rapidshare.com/files/606560282/Clipboard01.zip, Or the the texty no frills way:
In windows mobile, change Fathom's USB mode to VZaccess manager mode. Open LGNPST and connect your Fathom. Go to "phone setting" and change default phone mode to GSM, and change the APN setting to the one your carrier uses.
I must warn that Android will attempt to connect when it boots, so be sure you have either an unlimited data plan or make sure you won't be charged if you use prepaid.
Note: I am quite a busy person, and I won't be updating everyday, at the moment I have a grave matter to handle, and it is my 1TB hard drive. It has corrupt sectors, and it needs to be replaced. It holds crucial XDA data on it, so it is important to me. At the moment I can't afford a new one, so any donations is greatly appreciated in helping me remedy that problem.
