This is the official announcement of my Froyo ROM for dell streak.

THIS RELEASE IS NOW IN MY OPINION STABLE ENOUGH TO TRANSITION FROM BETA STATUS TO A PROPER RELEASE LEVEL
so further to this i have named my new release version 1.0. it still has bugs but none of them are serious enough to warrant remaining beta


the update process is now very simple to do but it does require that you flash a new baseband UNLESS YOUR USING A REBELSIM

Please see the excellent guide made by user homeiss here : http://android.modac...ing-the-streak/

Working:
Everything else that i know of work - may be some small issues that are being worked on - read thread as alot of issues are fixed by others here
30fps limit has been removed on all of these builds

Known Issues:
Accelerometer is dodgy at times but i cant pin down the issue yet - usually going into settings > display and toggling auto rotate on and off fixes

Known Bugs:
after you switch off wifi, the 3G data will not always come back on - head into mobile networks and toggle mobile data to fix
720P recording ONLY works if you choose mpeg4 as the codec, other ones WILL crash camera


we now have a nice new website blog for streakdroid - check it out and help me populate the wiki with faqs and get in the forums :) sites @ http://www.streakdroid.com

ok enough babbling on onto the howto:

* I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,

* before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
* you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.

Hi Steve,

Congratulations on all you have achieved so far and in such a short time to is truly amazing IMO although personally i am going to wait until you have it finalised but i always said and believed you would achieve this way before Dell or 02 will and you have.

Just to let folks using rebelsim that it doesnt pick up the sim card after the 2.2 baseband flash.

Thankfully the Update.pkg downgrades the baseband as you install 2.1 so you can go to 2.2 for a look and then come back to 2.1 if necessary.

not the bravest Streak owner here. Can an AT&T owner confirm they still have voice and data with this build? Also, the APN settings can be re-applied? What's the password for the ATT MMS anyway? CINGULAR1?

So its a no go for rebel sim users then?

same on windows 7. any ideas how to install that driver? i tried manually updating it to the stuff included in streakflash, but none of them install. the hardware id turns out to be ven 05c6 dev 9002. when i change the .inf files to match it, it installs and the mfc detects it but errors. it shows a bunch of red lines and at the end, it says "ERROR[D10]: no com port found, not in dload mode."

i assume i would need an install of windows xp to flash it?

You really have to follow the directions to install the driver. Make sure you install the certificate and tun the test command. After that uninstall if you had already tried to choose the driver. Steve is correct it takes some time, but it does work. ( Win7 )


Thank you so much Steve. I knew this day would come. Up and running Froyo!

Just remove the-edit from system and you should be good.

fastboot -i 0x413c flash system system.img

the file included is called system-edt.img not system.img... ?

Not sure how long first boot should be, I had the animated dell logo for about 5 mins, now just back to the static one, 10mins so far....

i pulled battery (and disconnect your usb cable) and rebooted 2 or 3 times before you get the dell animated logo

After another 5 mins I pulled batt, this time I got the animated logo for about 15 seconds, then straight to the static dell logo - stuck here since!

Also mistakenly flashed to data not userdata on the second attempt - though it was still doing this the first time - problem?

Pretty sure baseband is OK - flashed all OK and green, and my device off charging screen has changed to a glassy battery...
