yep thats right folks, i am proud to announce my first beta of android 3.1 aka honeycomb for the streak7

Dont ask how ive managed it because its far to complicated to explain, the kernel alone is a right bodge job and just barely working - courtesy of a mate of mine for that one

ok now for the techy part
Based on Android 3.2 - 3.2 google apps working
everything works and seems stable EXCEPT FOR USB MOUNTING.
performance is INSANE
NO OVERCLOCK ability as yet.
fully rooted and root adb

What Works
Everything that i know of

What Doesn Work/Known Issues
Some reported lockups requiring reset but ive not seen personally
Video Chat works in gtalk but sound is one way, the other person can hear you but you cant hear them, havent worked out why yet
usb mounting doesn work, but transfering data through wifi should
internal storage is mounted under /sdcard and external sd is mounted in /mnt/external1 - you can access both dirs using most file managers - tested with es file manager


ok now thats out the way we come to the complicated part .... installing it

now this build cant just be flashed through clockwork recovery as it needs to update some critical parts of the device including the primary and secondary bootloaders. so if you try flashing this i suggest making sure streak is FULLY charged and if using a laptop make sure it is connected to the mains power also for safety reasons.

also be aware that you CANNOT just use a pkg to downgrade to 2.2.2 you have to use the nvflash tutorial found at http://forum.xda-dev...ghlight=nvflash to go back to the 2.2.2 bootloaders and then you can place the latest update.pkg on your external sd card named as update.pkg and flash it using recovery to get back to 2.2

the software we use to do this is called NVFlash and involves booting the streak7 into whats called APX mode. those of you who have read the streak5 forums can think of nvflash as being the same sort of thing as QDLTool for Streak5.

Install Instructions:
1. Download the streakdroid zip from below, this contains all the files and drivers required to flash your device to honeycomb
2. Extract the zip to a folder on your pc - I recommend c:\flash and will use that path in this example
3. Backup your streak7 internal storage if you have not already as it WILL BE WIPED
4. Backup your streak7 internal storage if you have not already as it WILL BE WIPED
5. Backup your streak7 internal storage if you have not already as it WILL BE WIPED
6. Turn off your 7 and unplug the usb cable from it, then hold BOTH volume keys down and connect the usb cable, if done correctly your pc should detect the apx device. choose to update the driver, choose the second option then let me choose from a list, choose have disk then navigate to c:\flash\usbpcdriver and choose the only one it shows (Nvidia boot recovery driver for mobile devices)
7. Double click the Download.bat file in the c:\flash directory and wait a while it will take some time depending on the speed of your pc and usb ports.
8. Once the box disappears hold down power on your 7 untill dell logo appears (can take a little while) then wait for a few mins for some honeycomb tasting goodness.
