Android 2.1 or custom ROM for this device

7 posts in this topic

Is there anyone working on a port of a ROM for this device?

Either Eclair or something else based on Android 2.X?!?

I don't know. I really hope so though.

2.1 uses the same kernel as 1.6, kernel 2.6.29.

there's a thread on xda-developers for the gw620 that suggests this:

Android 2.0

This is destructive. Proceed at your own risk.

Pre-requisites:

- backup of your /dev/mtd* partitions

- complete understanding/ability to de-brick

1) Build the android source

2) Boot phone in fastboot (SPACE+Power) [Thanks Zacpod]

3) merge the old init.rc and init.lg.rc in to the new ramdisk on init.rc.

4) rebuild the ramdisk

5) rebuild the boot image with the old kernel and new ramdisk

6) Erase userdata and cache via flashboot -w

7) Flash <droidsrc>/out/target/product/generic/userdata.img via flashboot flash userdata userdata.img

8) Boot your boot image from 5) via fastboot boot

9) Voila. You will be booted in to 2.0.

There might well be an official 2.1 update for the GT540, but when, I don't know...

Ahead of the launch there were models spotted with 2.1 installed, but for whatever reason, LG decided not to launch the GT540 with 2.1 :)

the gt540 version of 1.6 has several 2.0 parts backported to it.

Official 2.1 based on ERE27 is coming late August.
