Ok just to make the instructions as clear as possible, this is what I did:

You must have SD card inserted!

1) extract the zip file (512 OR 1gb) to my storage\ not into any folder, must be in root.
2) goto my storage\o2beta and run haret from there
3) let it cerate partition on your SD card, and then it will reboot your phone.
4) now goto my storage\ and run haret from there, NOT from o2beta folder.

kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block (179,10)


I got the same kernel panic when i deleted the partition, and then let haret recreate..

I think the only difference is the size of the partition it creates on your SD card.

Ok, so third time I booted it and it froze again after about 5 minutes. But I discovered it is not freezing fully. This time I connected a headset and turned on the FM radio (which works well btw), and when the phone froze while I was in market place, the FM radio kept playing, even through the screen is frozen and none of the buttons work. The FM radio is still playing 5 minutes later after freeze, so it so not from buffer.

When screen freezes mosty usb still runs, so you can read logcats remote from your pc with adb or ddms.
I played with ddms to read logs and take screencaps. You can make the setup on windows but i did find it easier on ubuntu.

When screen isn't freezed and you want to scan your logcat you can use alogcat app from market or the terminal emulator app to do you own hardcore linux stuff.

First of all, thank you and congratulations devs!

I am excited to try this baby out, however, I'm having issues with trying to create a partition. I got the error : "mounting /dev/block/mmcblk1p2 on /sd1 failed no such device or address" & "Cannot mount the SD ext2 partition" right before the phone rebooted itself.

I tried both 512 and 1024
unpacked everything in zip straight to /mystorage
i ran haret from o2beta

Looking forward to hearing from you guys. Thank you again.

other note: I ran haret before on same SD card with success, but for another phone (I don't know if that makes a difference) and I am using a 4gig SDHC card. tried turning off all connections

you could take a look in the log.txt file on internal storage (contains old and new partition info) and see if a partion was created.
if you used the card earlier an other (ext2/3) partition may exist, don't know how phj's install script reacts to that.

Options I can think off:
- get a new uSD card, has stock one big fat part on it and try again
- using a part mgr (eg. partedmagic) delete other parts and extend fat32 again
- using partedmagic livedistro or other linux distro to copy files from ext2.tar.gz to the ext2 part (!! expert !!)

Awesome to see the beta is out!! ;)

I will probably install at some point and try it. I have a question; why did the dev team start writing letters to Samsung in the first place? What would be the point?

Also why has Samsung not let them release the 2D/3G libraries (or whatever it was, my apologies)?

gee i guess your winmo really sucks...I think it a start but not a beta maybe a good alpha ....did anyone have it running for more then 5 to 10 minutes yet ..good work guys keep going ..i would hate to think that the beta was release to soon just to be 1 off the first on the market..some off the bugs that I found are ...phone go into airport mode and connot be switch off..time bugs (never right)crashes when searching for file (music , ect ) ..goes into black screen and will not come out ..freezes up constantly have to pull battery..phone works sometimes ..while talking on phone I lose connection..when called ringer will or won't work.....on so on....sorry to steal your thread eskyo..

Has anyone tried to run this on B7610?

I'm trying it now, i think i've done everything right it always stucks when creting second partition, and then reboots.
If someone with a B7610 already booted it, cool, as i've seen here people with the same problem...
if not, i'll wait for updates

Glad that this project is still up and kickin, congrats to the devs for all this work and for not giving up :)

EDIT: Found out how to start.... even with 2gb free memory on the card (8gb one) it wouldn't let me create the partition....
Formated using samsung settings... done ;)

I figured it out. It was because the SD card was formatted with FAT32. Once I reformatted with FAT16, everything went fine and dandy. playing with this baby now. But it's still crashing every now and then too much to be very enjoyable but the progress is amazing!. I hope this projects continues until we have a complete android.

Thank you dev!

the system rebooting. In the case you have an ext2/3 partition on the device, you can skip the above process and just edit the default.txt CMDLINE line the "root=/dev/mmcblkxpy" x and y values according your partition ( see below) and unpack the ext2.tar.gz to that partition ( linux: tar xzvf ext2.tar.gz -C /path_to_partition_mounted/ ). -> We need linux?? impossible at windows?

and...

Not working on 8GB SDHC card ???

Start haret.exe from the My Storage\o2beta directory and press Run. -> kernel panic ;)

sorry for english

I had this error and did the following.

-Copied all files on SD Card to computer
-Formatted the SD card in win mo
-Redid all steps to install Android
-Copied all the files back into SD Card
-Now no more error during partition creation.

Not true. Have a 8gb sdhc and at the beggining i was thinking that way...
Formating the card via the phone settings solved the problem
