Default [R910]EG06+EF23 stock tar with 2.2.2 - details inside





A tar has been given out to me, which makes this whole process irrelevant.

EG06+EF23


With approval from k0nane, this file may be added to the ODIN thread.
However, modifications will be made to the file before hand.

And for my linux friends... Your heimdall package has been cooked. Please proceed to the kitchen for service!
Heimdall EG06+EF23



For installation instructions, please see Shabby's not too shabby guide in the original ODIN thread, here: [R910/R915] THE ODIN THREAD: Return to stock | Now with R915 files!
Just use the EG06 tar file instead of the ones from the 3rd post and you should be all set!




PS: If my links are down at any one particular time, please use k0nane's or Shabbypenguin's site as a mirror to download the files.
And please don't forget to properly thank them for helping out!
get k0's mirrored files (7z format) here:

Just in case I'm not the only one following this (kinda sad otherwise, ain't it?) It would seem there is a slight change between the two partition mappings:
The newer indulges have and added entry after /dev/block/stl12. We now also have
Code:
/dev/block/stl3 /efs rfs rw,nosuid,nodev,relatime,vfat,llw,check=no,gid/uid/rwx,iocharset=utf8 0 0

Hello all!
A quick update.




Of course, I will publish the resulting tar here if the whole process is successful.
Android 2.2.2 is quite better than 2.2.1 as far as I've noticed, so I may even suggest updating to it should everything go A-OK. For example, device is snappier to respond, gets less hot, and the battery lasts longer even on 4G (of course, that could also be due to the new modem firmwares which I may include in the pack as well, if k0nane gives me his okay).






PS: This thread is remaining purposefully vague because I want to make sure only people that are familiar with odin play with this. At least for the time being...
I'm not particularly fond of bricks and don't wish them on anyone. safety is a good thing, right?

There's already an EG06 TAR with factoryfs.rfs, the modems, and perhaps a file or two more. For the other partitions, temproot not with any existing script, but rageagainstthecage, push busybox, then busybox dd if=/dev/block/(partition) of=/sdcard/bin/(partition).bin.

dumps created. will upload soon.

Upload will happen after a quick talk with k0nane.
(I could not identify the kernel and recovery partitions)

I have, however, made a copy of all the bml and stl blocks in /dev/block, just in case some modem/radio info might need extraction from there. The files are humonguous, however (some are 500MB!)
so, I'll need k0's guidance for which files I need to deliver, and which ones I can just delete.

The EG06 file I received is indeed good to go. I tested it myself and it works fine.



It is my understanding that this will indeed return your phone to the latest version of "stock" with fw version 2.2.2
So if you are interested in having the latest stock software, you are free to download that file as well, and try it out.
I will try to ask if a copy of it may be linked in the ODIN thread for good measure.
The provided file is a tar.md5 file, to ensure the file was not corrupted during download, by having Odin check the md5 hash each time the file is run. It's almost 1/2 GB!

PS: The download link will most likely expire after 14 days. If you can host the file/provide a mirror, it'd be appreciated!

IMPORTANT: I have tested this file on my own device, and it seems to work just fine.







do be careful and keep a backup for good measure before trying it.
I've by now received various reports that it works perfectly for those who've tried it.
And only heard of one negative flash, which was fixed by reflashing the file.
Still, do remember that I CANNOT be held responsible for anythings that happens to your device. If it catches fire, grows a third leg, calls aliens to conduct experiments on you at your house while your asleep, that's all YOU, my friend!
Please see first post for link.

Can someone provide complete instructions on how to take advantage of this? WOuld I have to do a full backup, install this, and then reinstall both basix and electric sheep? Would this update the radios?

hmmm... just thought about it, I guess we just have to use this as the "tar" in odin just like the old one, going back to stock... I wonder if there is much difference from 2.2.1 to 2.2.2

Grabbing the TAR now, for archival and possibly testing purposes.

From my understanding, you would leave it as stock as flashing basix and Electric Sheep on top of it would bring it back to 2.2.1, as said ROMs are based on 2.2.1.

It would be nice though to see a basix/electric sheep released that is based on 2.2.2, though. I'd gladly test it...

Yeah. Flashing Basix+E-Sheep on top of this will bring you back to 2.2.1
E-sheep could have been fine on its own, in theory, but I do believe it requires Basix to function correctly. (Or am I getting this backwards?)
The difference between 2.2.1 and 2.2.2 is faster speed, a slight increase in battery life, and an improved shut down procedure. The phone actually tells you to "please wait" after the boot down animation is over, instead of the black screen with lit keyboard we have on 2.2.1
Also, of course, if your radios were not already up to date, this will bring them up to EG06 (CDMA) and EF23 (LTE) as well.
There is however an easier way to do this, if you really wish to, by flashing only those 2 files instead of the entire tar.md5 I've provided. (k0nane has a modems.rar file with only those 2 files in it which he provided me in a previous thread).
However, as I've noted before, I'm not sure what change the modem upgrade brings, as the behavior/performance seems to be the same as with the old one.

Any reason why you named it an md5 file? I know about md5 and all, just never seen a binary/archive named as one.

edit: just for sh its and giggles, the hash for the file is 4db868eb5546364c9ef3cf2ede764179

I named it tar.md5 just for the sheer size of the download, so Odin will realize it's corrupted if it's downloaded on a too flaky connection.

What would renaming it have to do with anything? I don't follow.

So it's basically a renamed tar? With 7-zip opening it gives me a "there is no correct record at the end of the archive" error. It still opens, regardless.

Would you be able to hand me a hash of the entire file, or at least verify the one that I posted?

It's just a tar tailed with it's own Hash.
I named it that way because once Odin sees a tar.md5 file, it automatically checks it for integrity.
Basically, if a tar.md5 file flashes in Odin, then it wasn't corrupted during download.
In other words, you don't even need to check it yourself by comparing sizes (we know how accurate comparing files by size can get... 0_o)
To see what I'm talking about, fire up Odin, and fake flash the file by just loading it in the pda section. No need to connect your phone to the computer.
Once you hit start, Odin will verify the file and finish (it won't attempt to flash because your phone is not even connected at this point. )

Yes and No. From what I have determined the updated radios were designed to maximize battery life. It does this by switching the phone to 1x if you aren't actively using a 3G/4G connection. I personally don't like waiting for it to switch over so I would prefer to use the older radios. Since I have a extended battery that lasts on average 20 hours, I don't mind charging more often.

Having said that, the battery life is improved with 2.2.2, but not by a huge amount. I had used 4 % in about 2.5 hours. This is after deep charging the battery and re-setting the battery states with clockwork. So it's about 6% better than I was getting before.

if enough people test it out and show no issues, k0 will probably make a new basix/EC based on the 2.2.2 stock rom.

Interesting theory. But I haven't seen this on my phone. Maybe i just haven't paid close attention enough? I'll keep an eye out for that.

Thanks for putting a percentage on the improvement!
However, I think it probably ends up being even better than that, because my phone lasted the WHOLE day with 2.2.2 with the stock battery.
With just Basix, that used to be 7 to 8 hours, and that was a good thing (4 to 5 on stock 2.2.1)...

Anecdotally, Basix seems to still last longer now (almost a whole day), so you might be onto something about the radios...
Unfortunately, I don't have the old radio files... I never had them, so even my backups are the newer modems.
If someone has the old version of the modems, (pre EG06 and EF23, please PM me, and i'll walk you through the process of extracting them for sharing... Being rooted would help, but is not necessary.)

i have 2 indulges and might be able to help you. i will have to check it out for ya. aside from that, when you say it would last a whole day are you talking about without 4g off or with you switching back and forth? did you use WIFI or just straight 1x?

That's a whole day with 4g on.
I haven't turned off 4g in over a week now!

Yes. But it seems the newer radios are working nicely for those who hadn't gotten the update.

One "glitch" I noticed, I lost the Zoom ability with my camera with 2.2.2. And I ended up re-flashing back to 2.2.2 after I noticed the radio firmware was the newer version (EG06) Something about me is that I like to keep the build version and radio versions the same. Just a quirk. If anyone knows of a fix for the zoom that went MIA I would sure appreciate it. Oh, and I was totally wrong on the battery life. I was at about 30% left when I went to bed after flashing 2.2.2 back on the phone and re-calibrating my battery. That is an entire day with talking, 4G and Wifi surfing and streaming music. Again, I use a 3600 mAh battery, but I imagine with a stock battery I could squeeze about a day out of it now.

Just wanted to throw in my 2 cents.

Zoom?
You baffle me... I was unaware of the indulge being able to zoom with the camera app...
I even tried other camera apps and checked the phone capabilities (by software), and it said zoom unavailable...
Please elaborate.

When you install 2.2.2 stock, do you lose root?

Ckecked the file first for corruption, connected phone and it gets stuck at zImage (Modem)? Tried a couple time and get the same thing. Only thing I can do is put phone in download. Only thing ckecked was auto reboot.

make sure you are flashing using the PDA button.
The ONLY file you should be flashing is the .tar.md5 provided.
No need for a pit file, no need to check anything but Auto-Reboot
It should work.
If not, try to install just the modems using this file:

Successfully updated my radios to EG06 and EF23. Hopefully it will save some battery!

Weirdest thing about that - the wireless mac address on the phone changed after I updated the radios!

Tried installing 2.2.2, 3 times, it just stopped at the modem every time even with the modem file tiede was kind enough to share.
Many thanks to tiede , but I'm all ODIN'd out, 3rd time was it for me.

Can you tell me which file you used, was it the one in the 1st post or just the modem file?
