Syd now has a second OS. I'm not sure if that means she has a split personality or just a new set of skills. *Imagines Neo looking mildly awed and saying "I know kung fu"* I had about a week after most of my exams before my last one, and this morning I finally sat down and made this happen. Honestly, setting up the folder with a build (Froyo), up-to-date kernel, rootfs and RIL only took a few minutes (see Introduction to Android - SD Card - xda-developers for easy setup instructions). I couldn't make rel_path work, but it boots fine with the build in the root directory so I gave up. But otherwise the first boot took longer than the actual work I put into setup. XDAndroid still is not fully functional. There are bluetooth issues, 3.5mm jack issues (for the CDMA Rhodium users), speakerphone issues, wifi issues (it works, you just can't shut it off from within xdandroid to save power -- turning off just makes it so you can't use it, it still sucks power), you have to use an alternate driver for usb host mode, and some sleep issues I don't fully understand, including GPS preventing it from entering deep sleep, and as a result, the LED is tasked for informing you of what sleep level it is in, not for notifications. But they've made a ton of progress since I first swore I would test it out. I dropped a donation in the xdandroid tin with a note that there's more coming if 3.5mm gets added on. For whatever that's worth. I'm looking forward to playing with Froyo all the same and seeing what the android marketplace has to offer and where Google Voice integration is at. There are Gingerbread builds, but Froyo is the most stable, so that's what I used. Because this runs off the SD card, there is no need to do a hard spl unlock or make any modification to the phone. xdandroid is working on a version that can initialize hardware without WinMo's help, but frankly, for as long as quirks remain, I prefer this method. For all the caveats, it doesn't feel like a hack once it boots up. I quickly and smoothly (more smoothly than in winmo ) got in, set up wifi, signed in to the market, downloaded 3g watchdog (thanks hook ) with apndroid, kindle, aldiko, an Amazon bar code scanner, looked at mobilenoter played a little angry birds rio (which did crash, maybe just because my hardware is ancient), set up weather info and looked at other stuff I've been drooling over and was on my way. It all felt fairly smooth. I'll play with it some today, but I may not get much more time with it until the weekend after this one. I have family coming into town this weekend and one more exam, but if you have any "must trys", do tell. For now, this is like having a whole new phone. EDIT: Made an install guide that is more streamlined than the one I linked to above for mobileread, thought I'd post it here as well for any googlers. Steps to install XDAndroid on a Touch Pro2: FRX07 arrived on 7/15/11. No updating steps necessary. Download here, follow the 5 easy steps and enjoy.
