"Search", my friend, is your friend...

Hi all,

Just to share with some more my setting after been playing around for this release pack.

1. To install, definitely you've to use the method of installing via ubuntu to make 'my storage' as ext4. For my case I partition it to 2GB for ext4, the rest of the partition still using as FAT32 to stored my winmo files.

2. I believe that many ppl had encountered battery drain usage, me too. Understand that the main root caused is due to the signal boosted too strong, however after some fine tunes now my battery can last for a day, here are what I've done so far,

a.) Install setcpu, set a profile when screen turn off, downgrade to min 66mhz and max 266mhz. You can add in more profile to suit yr own.

b.) Install terminal, enter below command,

$ su

# top

From the top command I can see that one of the service of my email daemon keep running all the time and with the CPU usage of 15% and it had caused my battery keep draining. Hence from there I've changed my email synchronization manually to prevent every hr from syncing.

Also setup another profile while charging via USB and adapter, after lower down the CPU while charging notice that battery can fully charged within 4hrs.

P/S: Airplane mode method doesn't work for me.

c) To change the network to 2G only, also turn off data plan. You can install a shortcut called 2G-3G OnOff via market.

d) Turn off Google map service. At the same time you can go to Settngs-> Location & Security settings -> Use wireless networks (Disable it)

e) Install Task killer, to exclude some default system service adw launcher. And kill most of the unwanted application, try to maintain the memory at 50MB. Less than 30MB the phone will become very lagging.

f) To correct the time zone use the method of adjusting timezone at winmo to GMT+0, but be awared some of the calandar tasks might have problem.

g) Install autostarts to prevent unwanted application start up automatically after boot up.

Now battery drain usage problem was gone and my battery no longer having heat problem except using wifi.

Just the 2cents of my tricks.

Hi,HERE IS THE SOLUTION:

1.Put the time Region in Windows Mobile to London GMT;

2.Set your time in Windows ;

3.Run Android and set your time,you will notice thet time works correctly then

Also I notice that after doing this GTalk detects correct time settings and logs in,and therefore MARKET Also works always,downloads & installs apps!!!.

Test it!

Best way which works for me is to set the time in Android and toggle 24 Hrs display check-box. The time gets updated immediately on status bar and works correctly thereafter.

Has anybody tried to install Adobe Flash 10.1.

It is not available on the Market.

Tried to install the .apk but it keeps failing.

Alternatively, how do you make it play flash for example BBC iplayer

No. No new version for now. These are only internal server problems.
