Android 2.2 Froyo on HTC Touch Pro2 (Rhodium)

This message was posted using the” WordPress Widget” for Android on a HTC Touch Pro2 (Rhodium)





history:


I took the current build of Android v2.2 Froyo: BLAZN and updated the initrd.gz and the rootfs.img. After changing the keyboard-layout to “rhod100_de” by editing the startup.txt it was ready to go.




update: (2010/25/09)


Because of the increased temperature i reduced the clock speed from ~710 MHz back down to its default value of 528MHz (acpuclock.oc_frq_khz=540672).


Sadly none of the available startup-utilities worked for me.It seems there’s something wrong with the Gen.Y Dualboot since the altering of the appropriate REG-Key for the bootdirectory has no effect for me.




update: (2010/02/09)

it works when the value of the registry key AndroidBootFolder is set only to andboot (Without quotation marks or slashes).



// string 
HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareGen.YDualBOOTAndroidBootFolder :  "andboot"
 
// dword 
HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareGen.YDualBOOTStorageBootMode :  "1"


The MJGDroidutil seems only to work properly when the complete intallation is made in the root of the SD-card. Until this is fixed i’ll have to start the “haret.exe” manually.




conclusion:


Beside this and the fact that sound is missing et all (neither input nor output) and the Bluetooth and camera did not work in the current build it is quite usable even if you did not overclocking your device. i’m looking forward to updates and implementations of the missing hardware support.




update: (2010/02/09)


I’m running Android a few days now and i’m quite satisfied with. In the meantime there where some fixes so it’s getting better and better.




things i’m still missing:

  • Microphone Input
  • Bluethooth
  • Camera
  • Fix for the too large buttons in some setting menus
  • NAND installation



currently i have some problems to get the application “adb wireless” to work. if you have some experience or tips please leave a comment.
