-go to device manager > right click unknown device > properties > update driver > browse driver in computer > let me choose from computer's drive > choose Android Phone then it should be sorted!

BUT you MUST have the Android driver for windows already on your PC. You can obtain them by downloading the Android SDK directly from google (make sure you select the drivers option)

Good luck ;-)

I've tried to make heads or tails out of this. I think I've read this over 100 times, but I still don't get it. I have an unlocked streak, directly from Dell. but I don't get it, what I'm supposed to do. Something with the recovery image...? should that recovery image first be installed on my device, and then I'm supposed to rewrite that with the new 2.1 OS?

Hey Bootoo

Thanks for the advice! I can now get to PC to see the Streak. I have followed the other instructions in the original post but it hasn't changed a thing on my Streak.

When it says download Done do you take the battery out again? I can't find anyother way to shut it down. When I reboot normally it shows the build as still 6267. If I try to power up with the volume controls and update from SD it stops about half way with a FOTA mis match error.

Sorry to repeat myself but HELP!!!

Cheers

Andy

Add one more to the 2.1 on a factory, unlocked, Streak :P

Followed the instructions and it worked with no problems at all.

The Good : 2.1 is really slick and I can now get Opera Mobile :)

The Bad : I now have an O2 phone

The Ugly : That horrid O2 splash screen

stick the r2 on it

you'll then have
faster smoother 2.1
funky dell/modaco bootscreen.

or just get a bootanimation.zip and stick it in the relevant place.

Hi,
Not sure I understand, could you please ellaborate?
The only Streak partition I see in windows is the SD card. I do not see the system partition...
Thanks,
BooToo


I too am having problems installing Koush's recovery, all I can get is stock. Adb-windows cannot identify my device, but adb can ! :P But I still get error when trying to disable the override using Paul's script

OK, re: the recovery overwrite problem, do the following from a command prompt...

adb shell
su
mount -o remount,rw /dev/block/mtdblock6 /system && rm /system/etc/install-recovery.sh && mount -o remount,ro /dev/block/mtdblock6 /system
exit
exit
...and you should be set (testing myself now!)

Sorry for being such a noob but when do i do this, instructions not clear to me above sorry for being such a retard

Little help please:

Streak US AT&T
Baseband version: unkown (used to say GAUSB1A111231-US, but not after numerous tries)
Kernel 2.6.29-perf
OEM version GAUSB1A111231
Build number 6601

Device is rooted. (Universal Andoroot)
Flashing the 4399 recovery image apparently works (says Done)
But as soon as it reboot and flash the Update.pkg (tried o2 stock 4399 1.6) I have the error message:

E: No Signature (972 files)
E: Verification Failed

After that I reboot and I'm back on AT&T 1.6. No harm done, so I'm not desperate, although, I'm really wondering what to do...
