[b][color="#ff0000"]3 rules:[/color][/b]
[b][color="#ff0000"]1st rule: Remember that it's beta. It may have bugs. If You can improve it somehow, let us know via private msg.[/color][/b]
[b][color="#ff0000"]2nd rule: It's android forum not linux newbie help. Use other dedicated forums or learn linux.[/color][/b]
[color="#ff0000"][b]3rd rule: [/b][/color][b][size="2"][color="#ff0000"]Last but not least. We are doing it also for ourself, so we do not need donations.[/color] [/size][/b][color="#ff0000"][b]
[/b][/color][b]
[/b][b]Bugs:[/b]
[b]Bug1:[/b] There is a bug when calling via BT or speaker, when screen goes off, only way to turn it on is finish call.
[b]Bug2:[/b] FM Radio stops working when device is going to sleep or sms arrives.
[b]
[/b]
[b]Notes:[/b][b]
[/b][b]Note1: [/b]Wrong time is caused probably by lack of 3g during boot. Enabling and disabling airplane mode should help. Or Your provider does not support NITZ.
[b]Note2:[/b] If You are using default install, first time GPS can be slow. Next times it will be fast.


[b]FAQ:[/b]
[b]1. [/b][b]Automatic installer[/b]
Requires:
- untouched My Storage with automatic installer content
- ext4.tar.gz from manual install package
- at least 2GB SD card (class 6 at least will be enough) with one FAT32 partition or with 2 partitions (FAT32 + ext2/3/4)

[b]2. Manual install[/b][b] on Internal Storage [/b]
- guide by Gardakkan - [url="http://www.modaco.com/topic/346446-froyo-beta-3-for-omnia-2-updated-18102011/page__view__findpost__p__1829477"]link[/url]
- video tutorial by aafi-rocks - [url="http://windows.modaco.com/topic/349381-video-tutorial-how-to-install-android-in-internal-memory-using-ubuntu/"]link[/url]

[b]3. Storage devices (mmcblk*)[/b]
Following rules are for storage devices:
- if there is no external SD card, internal storage (My Storage) partitions are: /dev/block/mmcblk[b]0[/b]p*
- if there is external SD card, internal storage (My Storage) partitions are: /dev/block/mmcblk[b]1[/b]p* and external SD card /dev/block/mmcblk[b]0[/b]p*
- there is kernel limitation of 7 partitions for mmcblk devices, so last partition is allways mmcblk*p[b]7[/b]

[b]4. Moutning Internal Storage as sdcard[/b]
Change /system/etc/vold.fstab line:
[code]dev_mount sdcard /mnt/sdcard auto/devices/platform/s3c-sdhci.0/mmc_host/mmc0[/code]to:
[code]dev_mount sdcard /mnt/sdcard auto/devices/platform/s3c-sdhci.1/mmc_host/mmc1[/code]
[b]4. ADB[/b]
[b] [/b]- first install [url="http://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html"]Android SDK[/url]
- Windows 7 - installs all drivers from Windows Update automatically
- Windows XP - use [url="http://www.modaco.com/topic/331382-android-for-the-omnia-2-info/page__view__findpost__p__1590383"]this[/url] link, but without Step 1
- Linux - follow steps (as root or with sudo):
- create file [font="Courier New"]/etc/udev/rules.d/99-android.rules[/font] with following content:
[font="Courier New"]SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTRS{idVendor}=="04e8", SYMLINK+="android_adb", MODE="0666" GROUP="plugdev"[/font]
- reload udev rules: [font="Courier New"]service udev restart[/font]
Basic usage:
[font="Courier New"]- adb logcat [/font][font="Arial"](shows logs)[/font]
[font="Courier New"]- adb logcat -b radio [/font][font="Arial"](shows radio logs)[/font]
[font="Courier New"]- adb push local_filename remote_dir_path [/font][font="Arial"](copies file to device)[/font]
[font="Courier New"]- adb pull remote_filename_path local_dir [/font][font="Arial"](copies remote file to PC)[/font]
[font="Courier New"]- adb install app_name.apk [/font][font="Arial"](installs Application from file)[/font]

[font="Arial"][b]5. Movies[/b] [/font]
[font="Arial"]Probably best and smooth player is MX media player [/font][font="Arial"](even free version) [/font][font="Arial"] with ARMv6 VFP codecs.[/font]

[font="Arial"][b]6. Sample startup.txt[/b] (for second partition of mmcblk device)[/font]
[code]
Set ramsize 180*1024*1024
Set mtype 1626
Set ramaddr 0x50000000
Set kernelcrc 1
Set CMDLINE "rootdelay=2 root=/dev/mmcblk0p2 init=/init console=ttySAC2,115200 vmalloc=256M"

[b]7. Chinese fonts[/b]
Update available [url="http://115.com/file/e6esl45f"]here[/url] (thanks andylau&Job21).

[b]8. RAM size[/b]
Generally Omnia 2 has 256MB of RAM. Below there are two main components which uses it:
- Radio (GSM) - 64mb (cannot be changed, it's hardcoded into radio firmware)
- 3D - 64mb (can be changed but if it will be lower, white squares will occur in 3d apps)
- Android - ~128mb Edited by voyteckst

[b]Archive for beta2:[/b]
[b]Note1: Pink screen at boot[/b]
It's normal because of no logo compiled in. If it's too long (longer than 30s) tap the screen. If this not helps, You probably set wrong partition in startup.txt.

[b]Note2[/b]: [b]WiFi[/b]
- There is a bug with WiFi. If it's on and phone go sleep, after wake there is a chance it would not work again. Only fix is to reboot (some people say that: dev tools>connections>disable/enable wifi helps). We suggest to turn off WiFi before suspending phone.
- Sometimes phone cannot connect to router (it connects, but no DNS addresses). Workaround: in build.prop uncomment following entries:
[code]
#net.dns1=8.8.4.4
#net.dns2=8.8.8.8
[/code]
to:
[code]
net.dns1=8.8.4.4
net.dns2=8.8.8.8
[/code]

[b]Note3[/b]: [b]Black screen after call[/b]
There is a bug in a phone call. When call is finished, screen stays black. Workaround is to swipe through proximity sensor

[b]Note 4: Manual install[/b]
Example: if You have two partitions on SD card (first vfat, second ext4) You should set in startup.txt following: [b]root=/dev/mmcblk0p2[/b]. Full file example for this ([b]do not change anything other, only root device[/b]):
[code]
Set ramsize 180*1024*1024
Set mtype 1626
Set ramaddr 0x50000000
Set kernelcrc 1
Set CMDLINE "rootdelay=2 root=/dev/mmcblk0p2 init=/init console=ttySAC2,115200"
setbitp 0x7F008808 5 1
pfw 0x7f005800 4 0x3
pfw 0x7f005804 4 0x805
pfw 0x7f005808 4 0x7
pfw 0x7f00580c 4 0x0
pfw 0x7f005828 4 0x11
pfw 0x7f00582c 4 0x80
boot[/code]
If You want install on My Storage (Internal Storage):
[code]mmcblk1p5 - by default is My Storage partition (this partition is mounted by default by Android as /storage)
mmcblk1p6 - by default is hidden partition
[/code]
You have to resize mmcblk1p5, then create mmcblk1p7 (this will be root device in startup.txt) and format it with ext4.
[b]
[/b][b]For those who have problems with pink screen. Use [/b][b]this kernel [/b][b][attachment=75645:zImage.zip][/b][b] BUT ONLY FOR checking what's going on. It has enabled vga console, but causes instability of android. AFTER problem diagnosis, You HAVE TO use normal kernel (with pink screen).[/b] Edited by voyteckst
