I've started a new Google Code page for the "Kaiser-Hero" project.

Please note that I'm NOT personally developing anything, as I don't have such time or knowledge, but I'm grabbing the latest builds from current developers and I try to make the best combination for Kaiser. Credits go to the coders!

Also I'm optimizing default.txt for Kaiser but please *read* the Known Issues.

Our project link is http://code.google.com/p/kaiser-hero.

I would be very happy if the current Vogue (vogue-android and vogue-hero) developers would give me a hand in order to keep this functional!

Please post any issues here or on the Google Code Issues section (http://code.google.com/p/kaiser-hero/issues/list).

Cheers!

Any screenshots mate? Looking quite interesting, Poor I dont have Kaiser anymore.
Searching Google Market for a screenshot app. Check this thread in a couple of mins.

Later edit: seems like the process of taking screenshots from Android is a little bit...difficult. I need to install the SDK & stuff, so I'm doing a very short (VERY LOW QUALITY!) video demo. It runs ok in my oppinion, for a ported OS! Still, the "standard" Android runs faster.

looking too cool, I am missing my kaiser now :) May I know what all things are working & what not?
Check post #3. Regarding the OS, all the programs I've tried until now (music, pictures, market, etc) are fully functional.

The single problem I have is a laggy keyboard and the fact that sometimes the processor is to slow for the OS (add the fact that the build is PORTED, not native, so it isn't optimized like on the "real" HERO), so you need to wait sometimes for the apps to load.

The rest...is fully functional. I'm using Android for 2 days, and today I had HERO all day running without a problem.

Razva do you know how to chage the temp reading in the weather from celcius to farenheight
Mnope, no ideea, I don't use the clock + time widget as it slows down the home page VERY much.

I'm also searching for that cool widget that HERO has, with all the faves and their messages. It would be VERY usefull for me, as I kinda communicate with the same people. Any ideas?

Thanks for the feedback! I'm waiting for the new zImage from the coders so we'll have WiFi and data working at the same time. Maybe tomorrow we'll have a better build.

Data is working fine for me so no worries there. The sms not sent bug is annoying but I'll live with it for now :)

how long does the first boot lasts, because im waiting for 10 min now and the only thing it does is show the hero logo and then it shows the htc logo then shows the hero logo and then the htc logo and so on. Do I have to do something? im using radio 1.71 and an 6.5 rom! Ion builds works ok on my phone

Check the Google Code website - Wiki - Known issues.

I thought the WIFI has been fixed already on android-1.5-2009-08-08.zip
Yeah...it is...and it isn't... It was fixed by somebody else but after that the coders released another zImage with fixed data, but broken WiFi. So right now it's data vs. WiFi. Still I suppose that it will be fixed in a couple of days. I'll keep everybody posted.

    Disable PIN in WinMo

    i said that my operator don't allow disable pin at all, not im winmo or in any other mobile device,so my question is how to run android with the pin,is there a script or .cab to use. as i can read on forums the problem is the virtual keyboard or something like that!
