My dad has B7610 OmniaPRO and I have I8000 the 16GB version: so you can count us both in as testers. While I do have some free time ( a lot of it, actually), as much as I'd love to I don't have the knowledge for developing - something that I assume requires a lot of it.
Anyway, I love the phone and would rather that I never have to change it. A bit unrealistic, but with people like you around I can certainly prolong its life.
So, I'll send you a PM with my e-mail, for quicker communication and just in case I forget to check up on the thread.
Thanks. for your reply. so until now we only have windows mobile 6.5.3 on our phone
The last evolution we can make about windows is port a version of 6.5.5 (already some people did that) and modify it to 2013 requirements
We can not port windows phone 7 or 8 since we can not find drivers for them and it is very difficult to write/patch them almost from zero point.
So our other option is to port android.
The best we have until now is maybe frenkiedroid (cyanogen mod version 6) http://www.modaco.co...-now-b7610-too/
almost everything working quite fast as i tested, with some curable bug on wi-fi and gps that is not locking satelites. i am trying to fix it.
Another version is froyo beta 2 and beta 3 http://o2droid.phj.hu/index_en.php
android aproach - aosp like)
there is where you can help as a tester. you can flash frenkeidroid or froyo on your phone and try frenkeidroid or this one http://code.google.c.../downloads/list
on your father's phone and also connect on https://play.google.com/store
and try installing different GPS fixing applications to see their effect on the phone and if help them find and lock satelites. Post your results here or on another thread you will open.
P.S. You can learn many things about your phone and android by reading sites about similar hardware phones as thesehttp://www.jetdroid.org/
(s8000) and http://forum.samdroi...0-android-phone
attention do not try flash exactly the same way as these sites say !!!! i mention them as a path of knowledge about our phone's hardawre.
P.S.2 there is another option we can see Firefox Os on our phone (since it supports ARM6 cpu), but we must first see these kind of phones so we can clone their drivers
