I used mattc for months but changed to hastarin kernel. It was only after the camera stopped working with newer kernels I looked for an alternative. Changed to MDJ 2.4 clean + hastarin kernal. Only thing that is broke in MDJ is editing the user dictionary cos of evo keyboard (with cursors).

Been running MDJ for over a month now and too early to go to RAM or NAND as bits don't work in all of them at mo. Highly recommend MDJ 2.4 clean build but build.prop needs updating for green tint on camera (search MDJ thread) and the auto update don't work for kernel files. I just used es explorer to manually copy them and after a reboot, all sorted.

HD2: 1.72 ROM + HSPL
Radio: 2.15
Android: MDJ 2.4
Kernel: Hastarin 8.6


thanks for the piece of advice.. I refused this one because i had wi-fi issues, but that's sorted now. Can you tell me if and why is hastarin's 8.6 better than mdj 10 kernel, or whatever this build comes with by default?

Thanks

Main reasons are that newer kernels improved the PPP data reliability and fixed the camera flash. I used hastarin 8.2 with this build and MDJ10 wasn't around so I can't answer that question, sorry.

What i really wanted to know is if it's worth upgrading the kernel to hastarin's 8.6 :)

camera seems to be fine, and i don't use a data connection yet. So, in case I will, I should upgrade to hastarin's 8.6?

I would say no. If you upgrade then look for an oldcam kernel (8.5.3 I think). The new camera driver will stop the camera working on this build.

Edit: Tytung also released oldcam kernels.

thanks, dude... I think I'll stick with this one, looks great. Apart from a restart on it's own over night i hadn't had a issue yet. I am also getting great battery life, too (3-7 mAh in idle)

Happy to help. I noticed that your sig in that thread says you are running MDJ 2.4 clean. I used 8.6 with that build with good results. I have assumed you were running mattc1.8 (this thread). Having said that, if it ain't broke why fix it? ;)

well, i was, untill you recommended me the 2.4 clean :)

with setCPU setup like in that thread, i didn't notice any change in performance, and i am now having 17 hrs online time and battery left widget estimating 8 hrs left (it's not perfectly accurate, but i still have 32% battery left). I will post a full report on that thread with my results and exact usage, to set a benchmark for others to know what to expect. honestly, I am really happy with this lifetime, this is how much winmo was giving me, anyway

Your radio is above 2.08 so it should work and as this is an SD build you can't brick your phone.

By the way anyone else having a problem where battery percentage doesn't go higher than 97-98.. Well I'm using SetCPU to see my battery life.

I have it keep on charging and apparently its not moving from 97 or 98 to go 100..

This build is old hat, look at the last time it was updated!

Search for a newer build, there are plenty and some where you don't even need to have windows on your phone any longer.

This build has a number of bugs that have been resolved on newer builds, this build has data drops and screen freezes and sleep of death.

This is either completely removed on newer builds or a very very rare occurrence.

I personally prefer builds by Tytung, they are fast, light and reliable.

They are not SENSE builds, but i don't like sense anyway. slow and heavy BOOOOOOOO!

Never had sod with this build and I personally do like sense. I also used office apps on the phone so winmo was useful in nand at the time. I have to agree that the newer SD builds are less buggy and are compatible with newer kernels.

I went to a newer SD build with mdj2.4 clean and used hastarin 8.6 because I like sense but took the plunge and now running AF403 Desire HD nand build (with sense) which is awesome :)

I've tried 3 times to instal "haret.exe" but I've waited for almost 2 hours and the screen was still black. there is written that it may look frozen, but for how long? any idea what is the problem?

I extracted the zip file on my PC and then moved it to SD card. first I started "CLRCAD.exe" than "haret.exe", the flash turned on for a sec. and then few "white lines" on the black screen. it disappeared after a while and the black screen was on till forever.... just the orange-charging light is on...

Did you copy all the files in the android folder to a folder called android on the SD card?

You don't install haret, you just run it after clrcad (for audio to work).

Make sure your radio is 2.08 or higher.

    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!

    • USB connections are now recognized as usb. You should get a usb menu upon plug-in.
    • 5MP camera with standard def camcorder. Camera app has improved picture quality and flash over previous build.

    1.5b:
    1. Using new kernel that overclocks and has full ram.
    2. Added support for LED keypad lights.
    3. Amber charging and notification lights work occasionally but don't count on them.

    1.5:
    1. Speed increased dramatically with new kernel.
    2. Added EVO camcorder and camera app, allows pictures and recording via onscreen button.

    RC1.4:

      a. Fixed issues with sharp panel
      b. Increased stability of I2C
      c. increased touch screen ratio
      d. Fixed volume level
      e. Volume can be changed during call

    3. Added USB Automount program to easily mount SD card within Android.
    4. Data.img increased to 512MB for added app storage.
    5. Market speed is increased significantly.
    6. Bluetooth support adjusted, may add more support. Need testers. (Not keyboard support).

    RC1.3:
    1. Fix for proximity sensor killing phone issue.
    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.

    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.
