Ah, thanks. I don't know the layout of the repo, and was only going by the many tutorials out there and the CyanogenMod wiki. That "repo init" says eclair and froyo are there, but not donut. I found 2 threads on the CyanogenMod forums asking about this, and replied to both. Unfortunately no one bothered helping. I've found that forum to be a bit cold.

I'll try the tar ball when I get home. Thanks :)

Edit:
Tried this:




If I try to download the tar ball from https://github.com/CyanogenMod/android_vendor_cyanogen/tree/donut it's only 2MB. From what I've read it takes some people hours to download everything, so I can't imagine that's everything that's needed since the stock android donut repo is some 3gb.

you would need to get tarballs for all of the stuff in https://github.com/CyanogenMod/

and don't forget to change to the donut branch

I know its not ideal, but if you want the cm donut src, that is what you need to do

Just flashed my G1 to 4.2.15.1 and now my Enter, Home, and Call buttons don't work. The phone recognizes that they've been pressed (if the phone is dark, the buttons all light up) but nothing happens. Enter doesn't send my texts, Home doesn't bump me back to my Home screen, and Call doesn't bring up my Dialer. Oddly, Call still sends what has been typed into the dialer and answers incoming calls.

Edit: Also trying to get Android Market on this...

Sounds like a bad flash.

Use Ohsaka's superwipe, then power the phone all the way off.
Reboot back into recovery and flash the gapps base FIRST.
Then flash rom.

On first boot, let it sit for a solid 10 to 15 mins before you sign into google. There are lots of background processes going and interrupting them too early can cause instability in the rom.

Slow down and reread everything very carefully.

2708 ports?

Does anyone know if there is any ports for this rom to work with the 2708 radio and the new spl? I'd like to take advantage of the extra ram. what about a kernel?

Use the 28.25 radio instead. Should work fine with ezterry's kernel. Link in my sig. I used that kernel successfully with my oem Donut on the newest radio and spl, and it was ****ing FAST!! Pandora and Navi at the same time with no lag. :eek:

I am coming from LeeDroid where I am having unacceptable issues, and since LeeDroid doesnt make a difference between GSM and CDMA ROMS I am feeling a bit stupid to ask the following, although I googled quite a bit to no avail:

How can I find out whether my Desire A8181 (bought in France) is GSM or CDMA, which Cyanogen ROM to install respectively?

Thanks for your patience!;)

Phateless,
thanks for your quick reply!

The specifications for both phones on the (generally pretty helpful) wiki vary in either the cpu and connectivities. While I am not able to find out about which cpu is in my device, the connectivities might give some more clear hints.

CDMA:
Wi-Fi (802.11b/g), Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, microUSB, A-GPS, FM Radio

GSM:
Wi-Fi (802.11b/g), Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, microUSB, A-GPS, FM Radio
Quad-band GSM 850 900 1800 1900 MHz GPRS/EDGE and Dual-band 900 2100 MHz HSPA/WCDMA

If these lists are each complete, and since my display does show "E", "G" or "H", can I safely assume my phone is a GSM one?

Sorry to bother more, but I am certainly concerned about choosing the wrong one since I read it could ultimately brick my phone.:eek:

It's tough because what displays is partially controlled by the ROM. You said you're on a Desire? I wasn't aware that the Desire could share ROMs with the G1... How did you find your way to this thread?

The best place to start is in hboot, and the Desire part of this forum. There's bound to be a newbie guide/FAQ that will help you figure this out.

How did you find your way to this thread?
I was simply using the search function - sheesh, and of course I didnt pay attention on the forum this thread is in.

I will move over to forum.cyanogenmod.com (or the Desire section in here) and see if I can have anyone confirming my assumption - in the proper subforum;)

Thanks again, Phateless!

Haha no worries, you're not the first, you won't be the last, and of course I've done it myself. Good luck!

Btw, this thread is a DONUT ROM, lol. It's that old.

If you bought it and used it in France then it is a GSM capable unit. France only has GSM. GSM is used throughout Europe and there is no CDMA here that I am aware of.

That doesn't mean that the hardware can't do CDMA, simply that it was set up and used for GSM.

I just flashed the newest CM4 rom but it gets stuck at first boot logo. Ezterry's newest kernel version. Are they not compatible?

I also tried installing original AOSP 1.6 but it said the update.zip is not signed. Does anyone got a signed original version? Has to be for german/ european G1 though and German language or installable afterwards (need it German for my mother).

Thanks

    Now that the dust has settled, it's time for a new CM build..

    This is a heavily modified version of AOSP 1.6 without the proprietary bits (which will back up your proprietary bits and restore them after installing the ROM). In order to get up and running the first time, you'll need to follow some simple instructions. A great set of documentation has been put together by the community at the CyanogenMod Wiki. Everything you need to know is there!

    But first..

    Code:
    #include <std_disclaimer.h>
    /*
     * Your warranty is now void.
     *
     * I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
     * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
     * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
     * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
     * you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.
     */

    The Android devices we own come with many files that can't be redistributed legally, and as you all probably know, I can no longer include these with my ROMs. So, in order to get up and running, you'll need a compatible device with a compatible ROM.

    Installation Guide @ CyanogenMod Wiki:: http://wiki.cyanogenmod.com/index.php/Main_Page#How_do_I_upgrade_to_the_latest_CyanogenMod.3F

    IF HTC Touch Input Force Closes: install file below =)

    * UNIVERSAL! Runs on both Dream and Magic 32B
    * Based on Android 1.6, many bugfixes and enhancements from AOSP, XDA, and me
    * Custom art and wallpapers from Prash
    * Highly optimized kernel with many extra modules
    * Enhanced ramdisk which uses optimal mount options and smart startup
    * Includes E2FSProgs for checking and converting Ext filesystems
    * Apps2SD is automatic! All you need is a second partition (ext).
    * Launcher with 5 screens and auto-orientation and compact drawer layout
    * 360 degree auto-orientation thanks to Optedoblivion
    * Clean filesystem shutdown at poweroff/reboot, and fsck at boot (no FS corruption!)
    * Includes Amazon MP3 store, and Work Email (MS Exchange support)
    * Does not require "DangerSPL"
    * Includes a massive APN list
    * Maximum CPU scaling frequency set to 528MHz with latency tweaks
    * Various enhancements to the Settings app including extra partition space
    * System dex cache moved to /cache to save 30mb on /data
    * Phone app enhancements by cytown
    * MMS enhancements from rgv151
    * FLAC audio support thanks to kroot
    * Bluetooth OBEX support from Erin Yueh
    * Contacts app enhancements by ChainsDD and Wysie
    * USB tethering support (kernel code ported by Zinx)
    * Commandline extras: bash, lsof, powertop, htop, nano, busybox
    * Ability to lock home app in memory (control in Spare Parts app)
    * Eclair graphics, apps, and other guts
    * Multitouch browser and gallery
    * Music and DeskClock apps from Eclair

    I'm up and running! You guys are awesome!
    Glad to hear you got it going ...... now drink a beer or sparkling water ..whatever your fancy

    That makes sense to me. But its a paid app so I don't think the author would post the apk on his site. But anyway, its just a Task manager. I can always use another one. Just that Advanced Task Manager worked best.

    But 4.2.3.1 worked beautifully except for that one app and for the fact that after installing 2-3 apps, I have to restart phone or I get the 'Installation Error' problem.
    You could wait for an update. My market let me install some of the protected apps I lost when I wiped my ext3 when there were updates (before that the buttons for open and uninstall were greyed out).

    HTC 1.6 Base images

    ...A.K.A HTC "Recovery images"

    Guys I know there are new links up and live, but I thought I might add a few more for convenience and diversity (uploaded to RS).
    I know the ADP one works for sure and is rooted.
    The Dream one is the one that's been floating around, and is also available here

    They will be available as long as I maintain my RS account, so till January 21st for sure. Let's hope we don't need them anymore by that time ;)
