yep thats right folks, i am proud to announce my first beta of android 3.1 aka honeycomb for the streak7

Dont ask how ive managed it because its far to complicated to explain, the kernel alone is a right bodge job and just barely working - courtesy of a mate of mine for that one

ok now for the techy part
Based on Android 3.2 - 3.2 google apps working
everything works and seems stable
performance is INSANE
NO OVERCLOCK ability as yet.
fully rooted and root adb
rebased this 3.2 off of parts of a transformer rom,
usb mounting works automaticly for the INTERNAL tablet storage only, sd card you'll have to plug into pc manually or copy files to from the file manager on tablet.
internal storage is still accessable to android while mounted over usb which is a nice bonus too
screenshots work using the internal screenshot ability.... goto settings > display to enable it then long press the recent apps icon to take screenshot


What Works
Everything that i know of

What Doesn Work/Known Issues
Some reported lockups requiring reset but ive not seen personally
Video Chat works in gtalk but sound is one way, the other person can hear you but you cant hear them, havent worked out why yet


ok now thats out the way we come to the complicated part .... installing it

now this build cant just be flashed through clockwork recovery as it needs to update some critical parts of the device including the primary and secondary bootloaders. so if you try flashing this i suggest making sure streak is FULLY charged and if using a laptop make sure it is connected to the mains power also for safety reasons.

also be aware that you CANNOT just use a pkg to downgrade to 2.2.2 you have to use the nvflash tutorial found at http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1018809&highlight=nvflash to go back to the 2.2.2 bootloaders and then you can place the latest update.pkg on your external sd card named as update.pkg and flash it using recovery to get back to 2.2

the software we use to do this is called NVFlash and involves booting the streak7 into whats called APX mode. those of you who have read the streak5 forums can think of nvflash as being the same sort of thing as QDLTool for Streak5.

Install Instructions:
1. Download the streakdroid zip from below, this contains all the files and drivers required to flash your device to honeycomb
2. Extract the zip to a folder on your pc - I recommend c:\flash and will use that path in this example
3. Backup your streak7 internal storage if you have not already as it WILL BE WIPED
4. Backup your streak7 internal storage if you have not already as it WILL BE WIPED
5. Backup your streak7 internal storage if you have not already as it WILL BE WIPED
6. Turn off your 7 and unplug the usb cable from it, then hold BOTH volume keys down and connect the usb cable, if done correctly your pc should detect the apx device. choose to update the driver, choose the second option then let me choose from a list, choose have disk then navigate to c:\flash\usbpcdriver and choose the only one it shows (Nvidia boot recovery driver for mobile devices)
7. Double click the Download.bat file in the c:\flash directory and wait a while it will take some time depending on the speed of your pc and usb ports.
8. Once the box disappears hold down power on your 7 untill dell logo appears (can take a little while) then wait for a few mins for some honeycomb tasting goodness.

It's running pretty well I must say :) There is a power issue though. When the streak is not plugged in and goes to sleep it wont wake(you have to pin reset) or it turns off completely. When it's plugged in this doesnt happen. Probably a voltage issue. Also after a few reboots my launcher would FC on me once right after it boots up. It didnt happen at first but now it FC's once every time it boots

[Placeholder for me saying how awesome this ROM is once I flash it.]

How's battery life? Anything other than the power known not to be working? I'm very curious to know if bluetooth and GPS are functional. What's the clock speed for it?

Can't wait to try it out!

    rc2 is up folks check out first post

    I am hoping someone can help me out. I know DJ Steve put out a HoneyStreak HD7 2.0 Release Candidate 1.5 build, but I can't get it to obtain an IP address from T-Mobile's Mobile Network in the USA.

    Basically, Even with 2.0 RC1.5 (July 20th release), I still can't get my DS7 to connect to 2G/3G/4G T-Mobile (USA). The HD7 1.6 RC3 ROM works just fine, but the 3.2 Honeycomb 2.0 RC1.5 ROM won't obtain an IP Address. The mobile network will connect, it will say T-Mobile, I have tried manually specifying the network, trying various APN combinations, but it won't connect. Is there a separate radio I need to flash for HoneyComb HD7 (HC 3.2), if I was previously on HoneyStreak HD7 1.6 RC3 (HC 3.1)? I reflashed with NV 3 times.

    Thanks in advance for the help. DJ Steve, I sent you a 12-pack via PayPal a week or so ago for your awesome ROMs. Also, please send me a PM if you could use a little bit of help from an experienced Android/iOS/WP7 App Developer. I don't have too much extra time on my hands these days, I have a full time day job as an Android developer, and I have my own Mobile and Web Development corporation that I run on the side. But regardless I could still pitch in a hand if you would like. I haven't done too much with building custom ROMs, but I built AOSP numerous times from source for my N1 and ADP1. I am very handy with Linux, shell/Windows command & batch scripting, developing custom kernel modules, building from source, finding bugs, etc. I know about 25 programming languages, I have 10 years of Mobile Application Development experience, dating back to Windows Mobile 4, and I know the Dalvik VM inside and out.

    Cheers,
