What's new?

This would be a nice area for a changelog. What's new in the November 17th image? Anything worth noting?

Android running problems

I had flashed it now on my FR but it doesn't work. I see only a black screen.

It works, but you need 2 partition on your SD card. First about 8MB formated vfat, secound ext3. That partitions must be empty.

Hi Sean, how can the imgages be put on the GTA02? I also flashed my GTA02 and android will not start, only black screen.

Sean: I've just begun adding more information to the page which explains what is necessary to bring up Android. Sorry for the delay.

Hi Sean I split sd card to 2 partition fat32 and ext3, noting in fat32(1.5g) and in ext3(2.2G) have lostxxfound directory,I never set boot flag to sd card's partition, now I flash image and rootfs according your "setup guide" but now it not start just black screen. what's wrong with it

Android doesn't accept the pin

I have flashed my GTA02 and android will boot but it does not accept the pin code for my SIM-card. Jofry

Sean: Hi Jofry, I've never really tried a locked SIM, so I don't know if the dialpad comes up to let you type in the code. Does it? If so, then I can probably fix the issue. Otherwise, we are kind of stuck until a virtual keyboard is developed.

Jofry: Yes, the dialpad comes up and ask for my pin number. But if i type in the number the application means that it was the wrong number. But it is the right one.

Skamster: i've got the same problem. i could enter the pin as much as i want but it doesn't let me in. normaly, it lock the sim after 3 try's (i try 4-6 times), but here it doesn't. i flashed with qtopia again and don't need a puck. maybe it doesn't "send" the pin to the simcard?

That's a known issue. For more information about the things you have to do, before you can successful use Android, look at http://onlinedev.blogspot.com/2008/11/getting-started-with-android-on-neo.html Dolfje 12:03, 5 November 2008 (UTC)

Android rootfs for µSD boot

Treviño: Could you set-up a rootfs for running Android from MicroSD?

Android and replying calls

Actually it is not possible to reply to a call due to the missing hardware "accept" button.

Treviño: So, what about adding a workaround to it by using the AUX button as an "accept" button if pressed briefly (below 0.5 second), while keeping it to the "reject" (home) button when pressed longer?!
