Hints,Bugs,Questions and workaround.

Postby Otacon » Sat Jun 23, 2012 3:00 pm

Hi there, sorry for the topic title, but I have some questions/hints/bugs to report and I don't want to make a lot of spam inside the forum.
Bugs
  • Settings -> Display = crash;
  • Wrong mount of the external SD: default behaviour should be: is there an external SD? Use it! There isn't an external SD? fallback to internal memory (in my case some programs can't write external SD, so i had to add a special permission according to this article;
  • :arrow: Windows doesn't recognize the device when connecting through USB (ADB). Windows acts as I have connected nothing (no driver error, no usb-plug sound, ...)
Hints
  • Compile with Linaro toolchain (for FASTER speed).
  • Compile with V4L support (for usb webcams)
  • :arrow: Compile with webkit's hardware acceleration
  • :arrow: Add keyboard international layout support!
Questions
  • :arrow: Is there a way to load custom roms (i.e. Rom Manager + ClockworkMod)?
  • :arrow: Is there a way to change display resolution (android)?
  • :arrow: I can't open the file "en-us-NEW2-ak003.img" with a standard rom extractor tool. How can I extract it? In this way I can try to make an unofficial mod!
Thanks for your attention and, still, sorry for the megaspam :D

NOTICE Points marked with :arrow: means that you can find a solution/workaround in this topic

SOLUTION A:
try with an high quality SHORTER USB chord, this worked for me.
SOLUTION B (FALLBACK):
If you can't still overcome this problem the only way to access adb is with wireless. To enable Wireless ADB use this widget
then go on your computer and type:
Code: Select all
adb connect <mk802-local-net-ip>
and use adb as usual!

The newer firefox is REALLY FAST, use it!

Still, another app: External Keyboard Helper Pro. Works flawlessly!

Are you a rom hacker? Get started with this guide.
Anyway clockwork mod doesn't work: installing it WILL NOT brick your device, but prevents it to boot. If you install it, then you need to reload the recovery image!

Use this app and select TABLET as resolution, then reboot.

More answers to come :D
