Hi everyone, I'd like to let everyone know that I will no longer be updating my builds.

This is mainly due to the lack of time and that I have a lot of work for university to do.

I'd like to thank everyone who donated to me, I have sent an email to each and every one of you :)

I'd like to thank everyone who supported me throughout the last few months and I'd like to thank everyone at #htc-linux & #htc-linux-chat for their help and for being awsome! :D


Once again, many thanks!





WELCOME! This is the FroyoStone series!

WARNING:
If you post in this thread knowing fine well that this is a HTC Sense build and you complain about sense anyway, then I will ignore your post completely.


If you want to update the kernel, I would recommend kernel builds by hastarin which has tweaks. http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=787588
If you have music stuttering, use this fix: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=811248
If you have issues with data/PPP, look here for support: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=794309


The problem is due to the combination of the EVO kernel and stagefright.

Readme:

HTC Desire Sense build (FroyoSense V3.2) (Based on stock, no modification apart from camera app and superusers app) for HTC HD2 by darkstone:
My goal is to make a build that is close to stock as possible, but also has everything working. I'm getting there :)


Everything should be working, should be fast. Very fast.


Changelog for V3.2:

Fixed PPP disconnects (updated lib_htcril_wrapper)
Added more APN's (T-Mobile users, I'm looking at you for cluttering up my thread :p)
Updated kernel to latest EVO commit as of 17-Oct-2010 00:44 from here: http://oe.netripper.com/files/htcleo_autobuild_evo_tree/
Re-enabled Stagefright for videos.
Some performance tweaks.
Camera flash now work correctly, this is fixed in the kernel.

If you are already using FroyoStone v3.1, you can upgrade to v3.2 easily, all you need to do is overwrite the system.ext2 and the zImage files on your SD card with the ones in this update. DO NOT REPLACE THE DATA.IMG IF YOU ARE AN EXISTING USER AND WANT TO KEEP YOUR FILES.
Included 1GB data.img by default, saves time waiting for your phone to create a 1GB data.img. Delete the included one if you want, the phone will create a new one.
If this is your first time running FroyoStone, you will need to reboot after completing setup for the first time. Users upgrading to v3.2 do not need to do this.



Notes:
A popup may show after taking a picture with the camera, this is normal. If you want to avoid seeing this, change the camera settings for Review Duration from 5seconds to off.
Cam is limited to 3mpx, partly due to the kernel and also the camera apk. I need to speak to AdamG and see how he fixed this when he ported Sense camera to Nexus One. IIRC he modified the HTCCamera.apk file.
720p video recording does not work, seems like H264 encoding is fudged. H263 seems fine, record fine at 800x480 resolution.
Wifi hotspot app is working fine
Make sure to reboot after first boot, apps needing root access won't work. Phone calls will have no audio. Make sure you reboot!



// Creates a 1GB data.img if there is no data.img present. I have included a clean 1GB data.img for a quick first boot.
// Don't worry about FB console not showing, that's normal
// Copy the Android folder and the media folder to the root of your SD card so that you have two folders on your SD card, run CLRCAD.EXE and haret.exe on your HD2



Kernel Tree: http://www.gitorious.com/linux-on-wince-htc/linux_on_wince_htc

Just want to point out that the HTC Desire is closest in terms of hardware to our HD2, that's why I prefer cooking a Desire build and that's why I will always choose Desire based builds over EVO and Desire HD builds.


----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Changelog for V3.1:

Fixes youtube green line/video quality issue
Ringtones/alarm sounds included by default, no need to download media.zip
Theme removed, using stock rom with no customizations
GScript removed, no need for it now, no touchscreen freeze
Switched to EVO kernel tree
Dropped FroyoStone Clean, there is no need for it anymore. Just use LauncherPro if you want stock-like home screen
Speed increase
Removed powersave on screen off feature
PPP only, no RMNET for data

Changelog for V2:
- Theme changed, more transparency
- Now creates 1 GB data.img
- PPP is now being used.
- Fixed APN/Sim card changed error.
- Using interactive cpu governor
- Capped CPU scale between 768mhz at the maximum and 245mhz and the minimum by default, use SETCPU to uncap this speed if you wish to benchmark.
- Powersave governor @ 245mhz used by default when screen is turned off.
- Bluetooth Headset now fully supported in calls.
- GPU performance tweaked, games and HTC Sense now run at a higher FPS. Check in NeoCore for difference in FPS between builds.
- Added a Stop G-Sensor and Start G-Sensor to GScriptLite program. Stop G-Sensor to avoid touchscreen freeze when not using the G-Sensor. Start G-Sensor when it is needed.

    confirmed billing for T-Mobile USA

    wrong, the android marketplace isnt specific to tmobile. it is available to all android devices (well mostly) and it is tied to your credit card you use when you first purchase something. I believe the market uses Google Checkout.

    I've also confirmed the t-mobile checkout billing option in the USA processes correctly. So you will have to pay for those purchased items at the end of the billing cycle.

    Maps 4.5 Update

    This worked for me:

    *** Disclaimer: use at your own risk -- I claim no responsibility if this works or doesn't work for you ***

    First of all, I'm a bit of a noob when it comes to Android -- I've only been using it for about a week now...
    After searching many different threads and trying many different things, this method was the final one that actually worked! Apparently the issue is either the way Maps is 'cooked in' as a system app, or perhaps something to do with it being the modded-version by Brut.all -- I don't completely understand it <yet>.;) edit: for more info see Brut.all's OP --here--
    Anyway, I followed these instructions exactly and am now enjoying Maps v4.5

    Note: you will need 'adb' and 'Astro', and also note you will lose the Brut.all mod so if that's important to you better wait for an updated version...
    1) to completely remove the Maps 4.4.0-brut16
    Code:
    adb shell "find /system /data -name *com.google.android.apps.maps.apk* -o -name Maps.apk | xargs rm"
    adb uninstall com.google.android.apps.maps
    2) reboot *important
    3) unzip & copy the attached Maps v4.5.0.apk to storage card
    4) run Astro, tap on the apk file, select 'Open App Manager', then 'Install'
    ** (if necessary, make sure Settings -> Applications -> Unknown sources is checked to allow Installation of non-Market applications)

    Installation complete... Enjoy Maps! :D
