  1. hello!

    i followed your tutorial to install beta3 but my device gets stuck on "Loading Android ....".

    how long does it need to start for the first time ?

    and i used startup.txt from the first page of the topic.

    could you help me, please!

    thank you for your time!

  2. yeah same here it wont charge at all after 5-10 minutes plugged in (usb and power cord)
  3. I've got the same problem, but when the USB finally works it doesn't charge anymore from USB or power cord. I need to reboot the phone all the time to make it work, sometime I have to reboot 5 times before either the USB or power cord makes it go into charging mode.
  4. When you say you rewrote the code you mean you deleted the file and made a new one using vi ou notepad or something? could you be more precise because I did try many things and doesn't work at all I still see 124mb ram and not 256mb. thanks
  5. how did you check that vmalloc was at 256M ? did you go in terminal emulator and type free?
  6. you sure this will work on Omnia 2? Market says that it is not compatible with Omnia 2
  7. USB works for me on Win7 but it didn't work on my XP PC at work. maybe its a driver that XP doesn't have by default.
  8. yeah i'm guessing that's hardware related since the phone app must be a bit more demanding then the one on WinMo but at least now the screen lights up! hehehe
  9. Wouhou! My GT-i8000 shows up in my account on Android's Market. It would not work with the previous beta, that is so much better then having to use the device's market app :D Seriously this release is simply amazing! For me it's blazing fast! If I could only ask one thing for next release would be able to use hardware accelerated video when I play movies. But still everything else is just awesome. Long live the dev's team!
  10. I knew I forgot to say that all the partitions are primary, I will edit the guide, thanks for pointing that out :)
  11. also forgot to add in the notes of the guide that to know which partition is which remember that if your ext4 partition is /dev/sdd2 and you have an external sdcard in the phone then it would be /dev/block/mmcblk1p2 the last number of the block partition is the same as the device
  12. It hanged for me too once but I removed battery and restarted and it worked also are you using the default extended partition and just resized the fat32 partition? if so maybe the partitions are not set properly in startup.txt or init.rc or vold.fstab
  13. yes and no: sdcard is /storage since internal memory is /mnt/sdcard but it's possible to switch the names you just need to make sure you modify the right lines so it matches what you want.
  14. I don't know about this one I never tried it, if it works let me know. nope you could name it anything its just for the auto-mount when I plug in my phone to my PC so that I dont get super long named mounts with letters and numbers
  15. 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.
