3-Notification LED-doesn't notify, but just outputs whether device is in sleep or active
4-MMS-can't received but can be sent with the correct carrier settings. STILL WORKING ON THIS. MAYBE IN THE NEXT RELEASE

PREPARE YOUR SD CARD

1-FORMAT YOUR SD CARD TO FAT32. FULL FORMAT
2-DOWNLOAD FROYO X
3-UNZIP IT INTO YOUR SD CARD. ANDBOOT OR TO ROOT SD CARD
4-USE YOUR STARTUP.TXT FOR YOUR DEVICES. ADD THIS COMMAND YOUR STARTUP. rel_path=andboot. OR WITH YOU PUT EVERTHING ON YOUR ROOT SD CARD YOU DON'T NEED TO ADD THIS TO YOUR STARTUP.TXT
5- for cdma devices. add this command for the camera on your startup. board-htcrhodium.is_cdma=1
for gsm devices. add this command for the camera on your startup. board-htcrhodium.is_gsm=0.
FOR CDMA PHONES. REMOVE THE SIM CARD
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.

(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

Hi,

Testing on my Blackstone. Using overclocked startup.txt found in Neopeeks versions. This one have worked well on XDAndroid also. (Of course changed to match XDAndroids structure). Right now I have all files in root of SD-card, so I have removed the rel-path option in startup.txt.

I replaced the kernel and modules in the package with the 1250 kernel from january 7.

Results:
After about 4 reboots, I haven't been able to get past the first configuration screens. I was able to choose language once, and I see we miss many languages there, for instance the nordic ones (Swedish, Finnish, Danish and Norwegian). Would be nice to have every standard language. It can't be difficult to include.

I will try to boot again with a normal clocked startup.txt. Hopefully I will get past the configurations screens. But the overclocked startup.txt I'm using have been working with every other ROM.

Anyway, I am grateful as always for the work you do, and hopefully I will get past those first configuration screens someday :)

[Edit] No luck with normal clocked startup.txt. No more rebooting/testing this evening. I guess it could be the 1250 kernel that is causing the trouble.

What kind of battery life are you getting?

Just wondering. I am only getting 5-7 hours based on usage on the current regular build. Wondering if trying this build will be any better?

    Hi, guys

    thank you for all the love, i just want you guys to understand.
    I respect you guys too.

    My wife was reading the thread this morning and she said to me. Tiad i was reading your stuff (i think i left the pc on yesterday morning).

    And you know what she said to me today. Don't give up on them. Just do it. But don't spend all day, you have a family. I told her thanks

    ok, guys let start from the top. "ask permission, got it"

    i'm back

    get ready

    first of all, i got to share my story with all of you

    i was born in ny city. When i was 5 yrs old my father took me to dominican republic for 10 yrs. I come back to usa at 15 yrs old.

    This true

    i know the super bowl is going to be excited.

    When i was 16 yrs old. My brother asked to go and play baseball with him because they needed one more player. I told my brother that i don't know how to, and he said to me, see the ball, hit the ball. My first at bat, i hit a line drive to the center field. My life in baseball started. I went to college and i was drafted in the 17th round with the texas ranger professional baseball for 3 yrs.

    So you guys, are talking to ex pro baseball player. Nice ha

    guys, get ready big things are coming!!!!

    Thanks you

    2-you can play youtube in HQ (youtube app). it looks great

    thanks
