so if honeycomb is going to officially come to the wifi version and those of us that tried this and migrated back to our only option of the tmobile firmware, will we be able to get the official honeycomb update?

I would've kept it stock had I realized I would have to put the tmob firmware on it to get away from honeystreak.

Not to be mean...

You can always revert back to stock... if you had read the directions in full you'd know that right? Just follow the guide at the start of this thread and you'll see there's a way to get back to stock. I do it all the time after testing Steve's newest roms. I just bug test them then go back to using my pad... :D

I am not having any bluetooth issues. I am able to tether using bluetooth PAN, I have tested printing to 2 bluetooth capable printers, I can pair all 3 of my apple keyboards, and 2 mobile bluetooth keyboards, I have paired my stereo bluetooth headset. So from what I can tell bluetooth definitely works.

They works fine after reboot.
But if you sent DS7 to sleep and wake him after 1min - BT not work and only reboot will help :mad:

I uploaded stock files for the wifi streak in a post here. Flash those and you should be able to get the official honeycomb release.

Does anyone know the size of the app partition for the 2.2 stock build? I never ran out of room for apps on stock, and still had plenty of room for my music (containing enough to listen for 4 days without hearing the same song twice.) I personally think that the stock build had a great partition size - enough room for both apps and storage, without going overboard on one and taking too much from the other.

Maybe sizes similar to these can be used?

If it's true 1.5 used combined storage and apps, that would probably be the best, as it would be incredibly flexible for the user. Can that be done in the next release? :)

12gb free is what is reported in both Settings -> Applications -> Storage Size and Settings -> Storage. 4GB for the System and 12 GB for everything else...

I third that. I did notice that the resolution on that A100 is like 1024x800 (Or something in that line), so that will be interesting to see it ported over to ours.

I think this thread has been hijacked by the unofficial release from dj_steve. I think we should wait for him to respond about 2.5 before we keep going on and on about it.

For anyone who doesn't read past the stickies, DJ_Steve released a release (not release candidate) build of 3.2 in another thread. I didn't flash it yet, but appearantly he hacked the system apps to work at our screen resolution, repaired the launcher, set the stock density back to 120, and I think a couple other changes. So far, this sounds really good :D

there is some bugs on 2.5. i hope dj_steve can fix it soon or later.

@dj_steve, can you put cifs and tun modules on it ? since we can't compile the kernel to add it. thanks!!

Any plans for the official build? Tweak it like you did with Streakdroid 2.2? Rebuild Honeystreak on the official kernel? Anything along those lines?

    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.

    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,
