6- for cdma & gsm devices make sure you have this command on your startup for data. force_cdma=1. for gsm devices is force_cdma=0

SETTUP FROYO X FOR THE FIRST TIME

PLEASE DON'T USE O/C ON THE FIRST BOOT
1. On WinMo, navigate to the andboot or root sd card folder on your SD card and launch haret.exe.
2. First boot will take several minutes for the data.img to be created... Be patient... enjoy the animation.
3. Wait for welcome screen setup. Do not touch. Wait for green light, skip everything and you are at the home screen. Wait for green light.
4. Open Spare Parts and change End button behavior to go to home
5. APN. setting, wireless & network setting, mobile networks, access point names, press menu key, new apn. SPRINT USER. FOR NAME "SPRINT" AND #777 FOR APN NAME
6. Goto to Settings - Call setting and set up your voice mail for sprint,verizon. etc..
7. Goto Settings - Sound. Test the volume settings, test phone ringtones and notification ringtone
8. Goto Settings - Display-Brightness. Make sure you drag the yellow line to the left but do it really slow. This is to save battery.
9. Goto Settings - Location & security- Enable use wireless networks and gps
10. Goto Settings - Applications- Enable unknown sources
11. Goto Settings - Language & keyboard - Set your language or use more locale 2 to add language. Press the menu key and follow the screen.
12. Now you can sync your phone by going to Settings - Setting account & sync
13. Let the phone sync. Do not touch. Wait for green light
14. Open all apps to get full performance. First go to Settings - Display - set screen timeout set it 10 minutes. Make sure all apps fully open.
* DO NOT OPEN VIGNETTE UNTIL YOU HAVE SWITCHED TO THE CAMERA KERNEL ON FUTURE BOOTS
* Open astro, browser, calculator, calendar, car home, clock, contacts, email, gmail.google seach, latitude, maps (if you see update occurring, just cancel it), messaging, music.navigation, news and weather, phone, places, search, talk, tapatalk pro, titaniumbackup
* Open the market app LAST - allow it to do updates for existing apps
15. Boot back to WinMo
16. Open File Explorer; you can now switch to the camera, 1250 or 1253 kernel located in the files folder; just copy the zImage and modules*.tar.gz to the andboot folder level.
* files\first boot zimage and modules 1232 - camera/kb backlight - you can use Vignette with this
* files\zimage and modules 1250 - official kernel - kb backlight
* files\zimage and modules 1253 - official kernel - kb backlight/USB headphone
17. Boot haret, alway wait for green light. Make a test call, send a text, tell someone to call you. Tell someone to send you a text.


Requirements:

* Your WinMo needs to be running at stock speed (528Mhz); DO NOT OVERCLOCK under WinMo before booting to Android, it will just crash. Don't ask how, it just doesn't work. You need to be running WinMo at stock speed since your last boot; you can't just throttle it down to stock speed and then launch Android.
* Optional but recommended: backup the data on your SD card, format it using SD Formatter as FAT32, restore your data on it, and create the Froyo X distribution with the instructions below.


Miscellaneous:

* <LI sizcache="3" sizset="185">Here's how to have multiple Android distributions on your SD card: Have multiple Android builds on your SD card
* Attached contains the ts-calibration file I calibrated for my Sprint TP2. The one that comes with distribution is not accurate for my TP2; I get button misses when I use the soft keyboard (and hence any application that requires your screen to be aligned precisely). You're welcome to use it.
* For the Froyo X distribution, you may be able to overclock (not all TP2s can be overclocked so if this doesn't work, revert the changes) your TP2 to run at 710MHz under Froyo X; here is the setup:
1. DO NOT DO THIS UNTIL YOU HAVE DONE THE INITIAL SETUP ABOVE COMPLETELY
2. WARNING: YOU CAN DAMAGE YOUR PHONE BY OVERCLOCKING IT. AS USUAL, THAT'S THE DISCLAIMER AND I CANNOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR IT.
3. Open up the STARTUP.TXT in the andboot directory
4. Add the string "acpuclock.oc_freq_khz=716800" to the second to last line and modify the pm.sleep_mode string to "pm.sleep_mode=2". This works for my TP2 and ONLY FOR THIS CAMERA/BACKLIGHT KERNEL.
Quote:
set cmdline "lcd.density=240 msmts_calib=0x9f.0x39a.0x35c.0x78 clock_7x00.grp=0xa99 hw3d.force=1 board-htcrhodium.is_cdma=1 msmvkeyb_toggle=off pmem.extra=1 rel_path=andboot force_cdma=1 gsensor_axis=2,1,3 pm.sleep_mode=2 acpuclock.oc_freq_khz=716800 physkeyboard=rhod400"
* Get Angry Birds to work with Froyo X

* If you want to add (or fix) anything to this (ONLY SETUP please), please PM me. I won't have time to read everyone's post to figure out if it's meant for me. THANKS and enjoy your Froyo XT!

Many thanks to Tiad8 and the XDAndroid developers (http://xdandroid.com/wiki/Development_Team) for this great work. I, myself, am not a developer so you guys should thank these guys. I know a little Linux but would love to learn about the internals of the Android system and hopefully really contribute one day.

Thanks. I'll try this out and report back. Do i need to use a special kernel or can i just use the camera test kernel?

I hope there will be a camera test kernel with the kb backlight code inside, so i don't have to switch every time ).

(downloading new 01.17 version...)
Ok. Awesome build, very stable ultra fast and cmon i can finally play angry birds, slow but i play it,

Good:
Angry birds from the begining
Stable , exept for the cam
cam (even unstable i finally see the cam in android)
3D performance

Bad:
The battery dies just in just 7 hours
Black clock on a dark bottom, you cant see the notifications.
Manually updated and you have to know wich file to erase or not

great build keep working on it. we hope that between all the developers make a stable/battery lasting/ usefully rom to finally port our devices and forget about WM6.5
