mattc Leo + Froyo w/Sense 1.8

Quick Changes:

  1. New EVO kernel
  2. Wifi tethering now works
  3. Light sensor works
  4. PPP reliability improved dramatically
  5. No more hard freezes switching from Wifi to mobile data
  6. MMS size fixed for T-Mobile US
  7. Touch screen and G-Sensor freezes practically eliminated
  8. Green line in YouTube HQ is gone, picture quality is improved

Based on the official HTC Desire Froyo update.

READ THIS!! You will see a strange screen at boot. It may have different images or lines in black/white and will appear to be frozen. This is normal, just be patient and it will move past this. Also, there is no RMNET - not even an option - for this build. PPP is stable and no longer freezes.


Random notes on the build:
  • Kernel is not overclockable. You can always replace with an overclockable kernel if you wish.
  • On PPP build, make sure all of your APN settings are correct. It may not work if they are not.

Instructions:

  1. Download zip file.
  2. Extract contents of zip file into a folder on your SD card named 'Android'.
  3. Using a file explorer in Windows Mobile, inside the 'Android' folder run CLRCAD.exe. Don't worry, it will appear to do nothing, that is normal.
  4. Run Haret.exe.
  5. Enjoy Android.

Known problems:
It is easier to list what I know doesn't work.
  1. Certain apps from the market won't install. Neocore is one for example. You have 2 options to get them to work. A) Copy the .apk to your SD card then run it from your phone or B) Unmount your SD card first (Settings > SD Card > Unmount SD Card).
  2. Notification LEDs are flaky, sometimes work, sometimes not
  3. Camera flashes prematurely.

Some items you may want that are indeed WORKING!
  1. Bluetooth - Works completely on my Ford Sync system. A2DP, streaming audio, answering and ending calls, etc. BT Keyboards don't work yet.
  2. Camera
  3. 3G. I get ~1000kbps down in Ft Worth. My EDGE speeds have increased in RC1.4.
  4. WIFI. Confirmed working with WEP and WPA.
  5. GPS. Takes some time to pickup on first use, works great.
  6. SIM contacts are working. (edit: some people have had issues, I have not).
  7. I have included Automount (a free app) to mount your SD Card. Simply open Automount, set it to mount, then plug in your USB cable.
  8. FM Radio
  9. Camcorder!

  2. Updated Bluetooth. This may fix some issues.
  3. Added Froyo default keyboard w/voice input. To activate, long press in any text input field, choose 'Input Method', choose 'Android keyboard'. You will see a microphone button, push it to use voice input. This keyboard also has the "swipe up" feature standard in Froyo.
  4. Added Voice Dialer and Voice Search apps. They work great.

RC1.2:
  1. Added Cotulla's and dan1j3l's GPS fix. I don't think it has been tested 100% so just know it is experimental right now. Thanks to the devs for getting us that!
  2. Cleaned some unnecessary files to (hopefully) improve speed a little.
  3. Testing improved stability of the filesystem. If you transfer files to your device (music, etc.) as a USB device, make sure to safely eject the device before removing the USB cable. If you improperly remove the device, you may experience some strange issues.

Great mod but was unable to get the bluetooth headset working with my jawbone icon. The A2DP worked for music, but not the phone audio. Will try on my Lexus to see if the phone headset works in there, will report back.

Probably you didn't run CLRCAD befor HARET.

n e way i'm trying to run this build right now, 2 tries without luck i keep getting the green screen. any idea?

If you get green screen of death, it means that you are waiting too much to start android. Either boot with jmz loader or try one of the wm loaders and start it as soon as you can start something on your windows side.

    I found the thanks button. So thanks. One more quick thing. I was wondering if you could point me in the direction of a updated android OS that is not for the Nexus. I really like the way the desire or evo look. Also there is a buzzing noise when I try and make phone calls and the sound does not work.

    Thanks

    Is that using that build? Are you using a launcher or starting android via haret yourself? If the latter did you tap clcrd or whatever it is first?

    Try rebooting and make another call ensure that if manually starting android that you tap clcrd first even though it may appear to do nothing :)


    Dunno about those builds as I hate sense with a passion, it runs heavy and has even more self running apps than normal android so sorry on that one I'm afraid I can't really help you...

    You could alsways get another launcher from the market which will give you a bit more control over what things look like on your screen.

    Has your Jawbone worked with any other build? If so, which one?

    Tried on my Lexus and no go either. I see some people were able to get their bluetooth to work, can someone verify if they had bluetooth enable in Winmo prior to booting Android or was it disable? I'll give this test a shot on 1.2.
