Curious

When you say port a GB Rom do you mean like official GB Android version? Or like a GB themed rom? Just curious. I noticed it said UVKJ2 in the picture for the build. Either way thank you tons :D I'm excited

Wow, just opened this forum to see, if there's any new good firmware for Sidekick because mine started glitching here and there - and saw this! Great job windxixi.

just thought about it why not flash a pre assembled keybored from 2.2.1 to this?
although its probably not the issue its most likly some to do in the phones main framework

If windixi posts back about what the keyboard issue is, we should talk to Ric. He messed with a lot of framework things or maybe Sammuel. He did a lot of work with the keyboard as well.

Agreed! A link to the files would be very nice.

Ric is mainly a themer not a dev (atleast he points tha out a lot) plus he is busy with life just like bduv

Then figuring that the sidekick is unique to the point that there are 2 leds a key board an the keypad / track pad this make an issue of being a 100 percent update as a lot of stuff may be missing or gone (play store will need to pick up the 2.3.3)
Its a lot of issues for noobs so to speak to use the rom which is why its not released for downloads cuz someone won't read an just update

    Got it guys

    Okay so I have been messing around and I have figured out how to flash the new kernel. Follow below.

    First step -> Go into Download mode. (Pull battery. Boot holding the power button and pressing scroll-ball + vol-down same time while plugged into computer.)

    Second step -> Use Original Heimdall package to flash the SK back to Original Stock UVKG2.

    Third step -> Using the Heimdall Suite (I don't have a tut for installing this, sorry.) set the devices PIT by either using the one provided here:

    (This is WolfV2's thread with many SK roms and tools) --> http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1538576 --OR-- download your own, it's no big deal really they are the same. But if you don't know how to do that, use the pit file provided.

    Fourth step -> Using the "factoryfs.rfs" and "dbdata.rfs" files and the new kernel "zImage" file provided by Windxixi and flash these ONLY to the device. The device will boot into the 2.3.3 from the Exhibit 4G.

    """"Warning""""
    1- I am not responsible if you mess up your Sidekick. I have done this myself to verify, and the device can be flashed to Stock after you test this.
    2- As Windxixi has told us, no keys work. I learn now that he means NO KEYS at all. That means no flip-out keyboard, no front keys, no power keys. NADA. So if you go into a menu that doesn't have a back button, then you need to battery pull. If the screen shuts off, you can plug in your phone and open the lock-screen after the screen shuts off, when the screen turns on for charge.
    3- Obviously with such bugs, not a daily driver rom. Just do this to test or for some fun in the very least. ENJOY

    This is a very early release but it is still PROGRESS :) I'll see if I can figure something out about the keys at all, screw around a bit.

    THANK YOU WINDXIXI!!! ^~^
