Download the SDK, cd to "tools", run "./android", go to "Available Packages" -> Android repository -> select "SDK Platform Android 2.3, API 9, revision 1" -> Install selected, wait for it to download (75 MBish) -> Virtual devices -> New -> Target: Android 2.3, Name, e.g., Gingerbread -> Create AVD -> Select what you've created -> Start... -> Launch.

You're done ;)

You my friend get a high five for telling me that :P

I think so, but I'm going to try. I'll report back to you in a few minutes.

EDIT: So far it's booting fine. I just replaced the system.img in .../platforms/android-9/images.

EDIT 2: It's stuck on the ANDROID boot logo.

i need to ask you something is system.img = ramimage

No, system.img contains the main files (apks, libs, configuration files, etc...) and the ramimage (actually ramdisk) is what the kernel loads when booting up, and it only contains the most essential tools for booting Android.

I'm still a newb so i don't much but when i was looking for it i found a bunch of commands that change the emulator ramdisk and other stuff can you check them out please

go to

http://developer.android.com/guide/develop...s/emulator.html

and then scrowl down

Ramdisk has nothing to do with the Pulse 2.3 ROM not working in the emulator.

But first of all why did you want to do that? If you want to run Gingerbread, either flash the Pulse version to your phone or use the emulator version.

First of all, you can't do everything on an emulator. IIRC, the emulator has no camera, no rotation, no sensors, no bluetooth, no lights, ... You can't test what's not there ;)

Second, just make a nandroid backup and restore it when you want to go back to your current ROM.

try quick boot app, you can reboot your phone to bootleader mode in it.

We're not first but certainly fast. And we're also the only one with lowest specs/latest android ;)

And you can probably flash it like rommanager does with cw recovery.

In example:

su
flash_image system /sdcard/system.img[/codebox]

from terminal. I haven't tried this though.

[b]Edit: now that I look at this I would certainly not do this, because you're currently using the system partition and it'll probably screw up kinda bad :S[/b]

system is mounted ro, so as long as it writes the whole image before it crashes you shouldn't get any corruption, but if it tries to read anything during or after the flash it may crash. flash_image from recovery should work.

That because that's not the key combo for fastboot. It for official updates. Fastboot: red button, volume DOWN and the power button

BTW: Tom G, awesome job! ;) Hope that you'll keep at it :P

It surely was slow, but it's sitll amazingly awesome ;)

One of my friends asked me in school a couple of days a go:

-Do you think your phone wil get Gingerbread? and I went like:

-Lol, OFC not , it's just for high-end phones! but then you came and made the unbelievable again. You should be called "Messias of U8220"! :P

Btw, I got a random restart :/

Hey any Pulse owners able to record a video of Gingerbread running on the Pulse and upload to Youtube please? Would be very useful as a few people don't quite believe it's real. I've been tweeting about this and wouldn't surprise me if a couple of websites pick up on this ;)

(kind of wish I had a Pulse still now)
