There is something wrong with you ...

Beta 3 rocks! It is sooo quick!!!! Games run soo much faster! No more white squares. Angrybirds is very very very play-able. Only at the busy levels it gets a bit laggy but that also happens on my native android devices.

Beta 3 made my Omnia 2 an real Smart Phone. It just works. The Camera works very well and is very quick too.

I noticed one main thing: If I choose Reboot ->Recovery Mode and then boot back into android it feels quicker. The more I use it the quicker it becomes. I do not know if this will be permanent quick since I am still testing it out.

As far of battery life it is great! Listend music at school for 3 hours long. Played now at home angry birds for around 30 minutes. Downloading WhatsApp right now on Wifi.
After 14 hours with 3 hours music, 30min angry birds and 30 min other stuff on it. No phone calls made today but I sms'd around 15 times.

Stil 67% left. Mabey I am for once lucky? :D

Finally found time to install Beta 3 over Beta 2 that was already installed on internal storage

For those who want to know how I did it, it's easy I just ran linux and did a sudo tar zxvf ext4.tar.gz -C /media/system (from beta 3 autoinstall)
changed init.rc to point to the right partition for /storage
changed vold.fstab to point to right parition for /mnt/sdcard
used same startup.txt
used zImage from update package
I didn't need to create a swap partition because I already had one that I used with beta 2 so I didn't need to add /system/etc/fstab

Rebooted and voila! i'm at work right now but I could translate the tutorial I made in french on an other site, but I would like for voyteckst to look at it and approve it first. I'm gonna work on that during the weekend and send it to him.

Works fine, it doesn't get too hot and anymore running 3G with Bell in Canada on Omnia i8000 16Gb version

how to update etc / fstab?


If you already created your swap partition you set it in fstab.

Just create it as a .txt file into /system/etc with this info:

/dev/block/mmcblkXpY swap swap defaults 0 0

x = your storage (sdcard/mystorage)
y = your partition



I'm sorry, i was wrong. It can't be a .txt file.

Easy to solve, running Android:

1) Dev Tools > Terminal Emulator
2) run this commands:

su
mv /etc/fstab.txt /etc/fstab
swapon -a

And then run "free" command:

free

It will show you some thing like this:

Mem:   	124188   	120000 		4188        	

Swap:   	128512      	180   	128332

Total:   	252700   	120180   	132520

If swap is not 0000, then is working. I thought it could be a txt file because in my desktop linux (Slackware) fstab is a .txt file. But in Android .txt didn't work.

Wow! Beta3 is really awesome. I'm using bluetooth! Great Job Devs. I also have a question. Is there a possibility to overclock our Omnia 2 with this beta3 from 800 to 900 or 1000 MHz? I'm a freak about overclocking :P

i want 1gb ram and good 3d performance like the galaxy s2!
CAN I???
Our i8000 's hardware is just too crap, there are not enough physical ram but not the software problem
the 3d drivers for the gpu used for other native android phone is still crap (i5700 from samsung , rubbish driver)
It is not that easy to write a new driver by just saying "beta need more ram and 3d performance public/style_emoticons/default/dry.gif public/style_emoticons/default/dry.gif public/style_emoticons/default/dry.gif"
PAY FOR A NEW PHONE IF YOU WANT A PERFECT ONE!



Asphalt5
is able to run our i8000,now almost good,just need a litter 3d performance rise, and i really thanks for dev‘work,now beta3 is much better

@Devs

I've just bought a a sandisk 16gb microsd card, and after the installation, before the fat32 partition there is about 3.9gb unpartitioned part. its a bit strange :) i tried to resize the fat32 partition, but it damaged, so i had to reset everything.

I'm in the same boat as leonardodg

I just dont get why its so hard to install it to the internal "my storage" I managed to get beta 2 running from the SD card once with the auto installer but I really want it running from the "my storage"

I partitioned "my storage" [extended partition (fat32 12gb)], [ext4 2gb], [swap 256mb]

the partitions show as 1, 5, 2, 3 - 1 is the extended, 5 is the fat32, 2 is the ext4 and 3 is the swap.

So I set my startup.txt to mmcblk1p2 and I created the fstab file in /system/etc/ with the mmcblk1p3 stuff in there.

Downloaded the complete beta3 package from the o2droid site. Used ubuntu to extract the ext4 folder to desktop, then used: sudo cp -r * /media/android (i called the ext4 partition "android"). Run haret and then it shows "Now loading adroid on omnia.." for 1min and then shows a night rider style "ANDROID" in the center of the screen that sometimes dissapears and re-appears soon after, I've left it like this for more than 10minutes and nothing changes.

PLEASE PLEASE with cheeries and sex on top blinking help me to get this working, its driving me NUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUTS!!!!

And also at anyone who gets more than 8-15 hours of battery life. I also get very little battery life, and i have installed very little on android. Surely it cant be related to hardware. I would like to ask a few questions.

What installation of B3 are you using? Is it the B2 to B3 upgrade on sdcard, complete B3 autoinstall on sd card, or manual install on Internal storage?
Have you modified your original winmo phone? If so, what version? e.g. Winmo 6.5.3 on JJ1

Unofficial guide: How to manually install Android 2.2 (Froyo) beta 3 release on My Storage partition instead of external SD card on the Samsung Omnia II (GT-i8000)


WARNING: This guide will remove the hidden partition from your phone.

(But I guess it's possible to just resize the my storage partition to get the space you need for the swap and ext4 partitions without loosing the hidden partition)



Always make a backup of your phone before doing this kind of procedure to your phone.SPB Backup is a good software to do that on WinMo you can also store all of your contacts on your SIM card also backup all files you want to keep that is on the My Storage partition.


Note: You can use this guide starting at step 2 to upgrade from beta2 to beta3 (that's how I installed it) You only need to create the linux-swap partition using gparted

Disclaimer: This guide worked for me with the Omnia II (GT-i8000) 16 Gb version so it may not work on other phones compatible with this build. I cannot be held responsible for any damage to you and/or your phone.

Requirements:
- Samsung Omnia II (model GT-i8000)
- Froyo 2.2 Beta 3 build
- Windows (XP, Vista or 7)
- Linux (Live CD or Bootable USB key or a Virtual Machine like VirtualBox since it can link the USB port to the VM. You can use the ubuntu iso as a live CD with VirtualBox so you dont have to install the whole thing)
- Knowledge of Linux is a good thing also to have
- ext4.tar.gz from froyo_beta3.zip

- haret.exe, zImage and startup.txt from froyo_beta3.zip (not from the o2beta folder but from the root of the zip file) - [ you can get startup.txt from beta2 manual installer package froyo_beta2_manual_inst.zip ]


1- Preparing the filesystem: phone booted on Windows Mobile and PC under Linux

- Connect your phone to your PC (Making sure you've selected the My Storage partition in
Home -> General Settings -> USB Connection -> Mass Storage -> My Storage)
- Started Gparted and choose the 15.36 Gb partition (should be the last device in the dropdown list)
- Unmount the fat32 partition
- Delete the fat32 partition and all other partitions including the extended partition (this will remove the hidden partition)
- Create 1 primary fat32 partition of about 14.7 Gb labeled sdcard
- Create 1 primary ext4 partition of 1 Gb labeled system
- Create 1 primary linux-swap partition of 128 mb (mine is 256 mb but 128 mb is more than enough)

- Apply the changes (this might take a while so go get something to drink)
- Reboot your phone so that WinMo ajusts its new My Storage partition.


2- Copying the files:

Mount /media/system and extract the content of ext4.tar.gz (sdd2 could be different for you depending on how many disks you have in your PC)
sudo mount /dev/sdd2 /media/system
sudo tar zxvf ext4.tar.gz -C /media/system


Mount /media/sdcard and copy haret.exe, startup.txt and zImage from froyo_beta3.zip
sudo mount /dev/sdd1 /media/sdcard
cp haret.exe zImage startup.txt /media/sdcard



3- Changing configuration files:

vold.fstab in /media/system/system/etc
sudo vi /media/system/system/etc/vold.fstab


Change the following line:
dev_mount sdcard /mnt/sdcard auto /devices/platform/s3c-sdhci.0/mmc_host/mmc0

Like this:
dev_mount sdcard /sdcard auto /devices/platform/s3c-sdhci.1/mmc_host/mmc1

init.rc in /media/system/ (optional: If you want to use your external SD card)
sudo vi /media/system/init.rc


Change the following line:
mount vfat /dev/block/mmcblk1p5 /storage

Like this:
mount vfat /dev/block/mmcblk0p1 /storage

startup.txt in /media/sdcard
vi /media/sdcard/startup.txt


Change the following line:
Set CMDLINE "rootdelay=2 root=/dev/mmcblk0p2 init=/init console=ttySAC2,115200"

Like this:
Set CMDLINE "rootdelay=2 root=/dev/mmcblk1p2 init=/init console=ttySAC2,115200"

fstab in /media/system/system/etc

sudo touch /media/system/system/etc/fstab
sudo chmod 666 /media/system/system/etc/fstab
sudo echo /dev/block/mmcblk1p3 swap swap defaults 0 0 > /media/system/system/etc/fstab


4- Unmount the 2 paritions
sudo umount /media/system
sudo umount /media/sdcard


5- Starting Android 2.2 (Froyo)

Unplug your phone from your PC

Phone booted under WinMo: Home -> File explorer -> My Storage -> haret.exe

Note: It's normal that the Loading Omnia 2 screen and Android logo screen takes longer on first boot since it's unpacking the apps.



6- Enjoy your brand new Android smartphone :D




I think that's about it, I tried to put in as much details possible from memory since I didn't want to reinstall the whole thing again.

Thanks a lot for this guide, two questions.





1. Can I use ext2/3 or doesn it have to be 4?




2. Does the android partition have to be called "system" ?
