This ROM is heavily updated and still being developed at a fairly rapid pace.

The update process is now very simple to do
PLEASE NOTE: THEIR ARE NOW 2 BUILDS BEING RELEASED FOR EACH UPDATE, ONE IS A NEWBASEBAND VERSION WHICH WILL WORK WITH ANY BASEBAND AFTER 1.2 OR ANY OFFICIAL DELL FROYO BASEBAND, THE OTHER IS A NO-BASEBAND UPDATE DESIGNED FOR REBELSIM USERS AND REQUIRES THE 2.1 8105 BASEBAND

The recommended Update requires you to upgrade your device baseband, this is a simple procedure via fastboot.

rebelsim users should use only the nobaseband update file and use the 2.1 baseband or they will encounter problems



We now have a nice new website blog for streakdroid - check it out and help me populate the wiki with faqs and get in the forums sites @ http://www.streakdroid.com

Most Recent Version: v1.5.3

Accelerometer is dodgy at times but i cant pin down the issue - usually going into settings > display and toggling auto rotate on and off fixes

Pinch of Good Luck
Patience
Ability to read and follow instructions

ClockworkMod Recovery Flashed and working

-------------------
Level Of Difficulty
-------------------
8/10 - Easy level, should be simple enough for 99% of users to complete

-------------------
How-To
-------------

1. Copy the update zip to your memory card first
Steps 2-4 are only needed if you are coming from a build OLDER than 1.2
2. Power down your streak and boot into fastboot
do this by pressing power until the keypad lights come on then HOLD camera until you get to a white screen, then tap on the fastboot text in top right corner,
3. Connect your streak to pc - the text on streak should change to FASTBOOT_MODE.
you should place the amss.mbn file into the same folder as fastboot on your pc
run the following commands from command prompt on your pc
Windows:
Code:
fastboot -i 0x413c flash amss amss.mbn
Linux
Code:
fastboot flash amss amss.mbn
4. Type the following commands to reboot your streak - again alow it to boot into the main ui - you will lose network connection for the moment, this is fine, also streak WILL reboot twice before booting, again this is normal
Windows:
Code:
fastboot -i 0x413c reboot
Linux
Code:
fastboot reboot
5. Once your device has booted shut down again and boot into clockwork recovery by doing the following
boot to recovery as per step 1 then choose option 2.
6. Flash the 1.5 update zip
7. reboot

how do you install the driver on windows 7 x64? i tried going into the devices panel and updating the driver to the stuff in the folder, but none of them would work. any suggestions?

sorry, i think i need to be a little more clear. i read through the pdf, but the info is mostly for xp and doesn't apply to 7 at all. when i'm done adding the unknown device to device manager as android composite device, i don't get com ports like they do, so i cant flash it at all. any thoughts?
