I see a number of "Problem loading widget" displays on some of the pages. Are these widgets available for downloading?

Just trash those and replace them on the homescreen. Ideally, you should delete them off of the original homescreen as well so that you don't have two instances of the same widget.

Giving this a shot. The first impression after a reboot wasn't very good. It was super slow. I opened SmartMonitor and the CPU useage was pegged in the high 90%. Not sure what it was doing. It's calmed down now though and is much more responsive. I'll give it a bit before I bail back to home++.

It's pretty solid on mine. Only one force close. I'll use it for a while and see. Makes me want an official 2.1 update all the more. Wish we'd get some info on that... maybe Google will mention 2.1 updates at the Nexus One launch event.

Edit: Okay, I don't think this is going to work. The 2.1 Launcher is using waaaaaaay too much memory. My first clue was that taskiller showed only a few apps running in the background. This is an issue because part of the fun of Android is being able to leave an app and jump back into it where you left off because it is running in the background.

Running this 2.1 launcher, almost everything is getting killed by the system right away due to low memory. I checked, and the 2.1 Launcher is using 57MB (peak of 76MB) of memory with no widgets running. Launcher+ (a regular home replacement) is using only 27MB (peak of 34MB) with a ton of widgets running. Not gonna fly.

It's very cool that someone managed to port the 2.1 version of Home. But it needs more work. Hopefully we'll all just get a 2.1 OTA sooner rather than later and this won't matter.

Talking Get the Milestone Multi-Touch Browser

Here's how to do it:

Step 1: Root your phone (instructions here: AllDroid.org - View topic - How to Root your Droid<<<ONLY)
Step 2: Install Droid-root-helper from croatolus freak (I think I misspelled that, but instructions are here: AllDroid.org - View topic - App to install busybox,flash_image v7 (updated 12/23))
Step 3: Apply busybox, flash_image, and SP recovery 0.15.0 (instructions in helper app)
Step 4: Get MTBrowser.zip from here: [link removed]
Step 5: Boot into recovery (button in root helper app, or just turn off and turn back on while holding the x key)
Step 6: Do a basic nandroid backup (in SP recovery, [volume up/down to navigate, camera key to click] go to "backup/restore" and click "simple nandroid backup")
Step 7: Mount your phone (in SP recovery, go to "mount options" and click "enable USB mass storage")
Step 8: Copy the recently made backup to your computer (in the SD card, there'll be a subfolder "nandroid" go into it and there should be a folder titled with a string of letters and numbers, just copy-paste this into a directory you can remember on your computer)
Step 9: Get the Android SDK from here: Android SDK | Android Developers (for simplicity's sake, I unzipped it into C:\android, but feel free to unzip it however you like, so long as you can remember it, and substitute your directory of choice where I type C:\android)
Step 10: Unzip the MTBrowser.zip (again, for simplicity I unzipped it into C:\android as 2 separate files, with no subfolder, but the same things apply as step 9)
Step 11: Unmount the USB storage (same way you mounted, except this time it says "disable USB mass storage"
Step 12: Open the command shell (I only know Windows XP, so ask someone else for help if your system is different [XP users, open your "Start" menu, click run, type "cmd" in the dialog box and press enter, a black box with some white text should appear])\
Step 13: Reboot your phone
Step 14: Make sure USB debugging is on (go to settings>applications>development> and check the USB debugging box)
Step 15: (The fun part ) I'm just gonna type everything I typed word for word, just insert the directories like you did in place of my directories (C:/android)

>cd C:\android\tools
>adb shell
$ su
(from here on out, the system will repeat everything you type, don't worry about it unless the word "error" arises)
# mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
# rm /system/app/Browser.odex
(close and reopen the command shell)

>cd C:\android\tools
>adb push C:\android\libmtwebcore.so /sdcard
(blah kb/s transferred blah kb in blah seconds)
>adb push C:\android\Browser.apk /sdcard
>adb shell
$ su
# mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
# cat /sdcard/Browser.apk > /system/app/Browser.apk
# cat /sdcard/libmtwebcore.so > /system/lib/libmtwebcore.so
# reboot

This worked for me, I hope it worked for you! Enjoy your pinching and your zooming!

Mine was slow when I first loaded it. I uninstalled Home++ and set all of my pages back up and it seems to have calmed down for me as well. I did not check CPU usage but since you state what your was it seems as if mine did the same. I have been running it for a few hours now and it seems smooth and stable. I have a few widgets on the screens and many shortcuts.

If people are having issues at first they should give it a few minutes and it seems to smooth out.

That's what I thought too, at first, and it does seem like alot of work, but it's really not. It just takes a little time, and in the end, it'll be worth it. Besides, don't you want to brag to your iPhone toting friends like I do

Well, I gave it a few hours but still kept getting way too many force closes, even after deleting my other homescreen app. It was a nice peek at what's coming though.

Will this automatically be sent to my Droid when the official version comes out? I'm new, and am willing to wait (really want more screens, but home ++, panda, etc. gave me troubles). Don't mean to sound dumb, just really have no idea, and I know you folks have answers
Thanks

I've got a Milestone and actually use Dolphin in preference to the default browser... The reason? Dolphin actually wraps columns of text to fit the screen, unlike the default Milestone browser.

And that's your preference, and I am okay with that. When I used Dolphin, I didn't much like it. It felt just weird to me, but if you like it, hey, that's cool too. I don't judge.

I have a question regarding this, the gallery, and music apps... when 2.1 officially comes out, what happens to these? Will it just overwrite everything or will I end up having double, even triple Gallery apps, for example...

No. A 2.1 OTA would just replace the 2.0.1 defaults.

Figured I'd try this as an alternative to rooting and flashing 2.1. Not a good choice. It's slow, it force closes constantly, and I had to restart the phone about three times to get widgets to load properly. I might as well stress this part again; it was basically force closing every time I opened an app. Very annoying.

Is this going to come out in a form that I won't have to risk bricking my phone to use?

I used to do all kinds of things to my old HTC mogul (flashing roms/unlocking radios), but sometimes it took an entire day. I was just in school then, and had a flexible schedule. I just don't have that kinda time anymore. With my luck I would brick it and then have to go to work before I could get it worked out.

C:\android\tools is the destination. You need to have a command beforehand, for example cd is the first one you should use.

Also, celios, playing around with it, I realize that, at least this version of the browser, at least, DOES in fact wrap the text. I know it's not that important, I just thought I should let everyone else know.

Interesting point. With tap-to-zoom on my droid browser, text wraps without a hitch. Does this work with the milestone browser?

I actually prefer the tap to zoom (easier one-handed use)

I couldn't stand dolphin browser though

Thanks this worked for me. I just did step 4 and on and it works great. Will have to give it a try for a day or so to give feedback as to how good this is working, but so far it's working albeit a little sluggish.

Writeup makes this seem harder than necessary but I assume tha's to avoid blame if something goes wrong on a noob's Droid. Works for me as well.

One question though, does anyone else have issues with the droid or milestone browser not saving zip files? I have to download all zips using dolphin. The stock (and also MT) browsers say the file type is not supported when I attempt to download zips...

You need androzip from the market, that way the file type will be supported.

Im having trouble installing the sdk on my computer. I have downloaded the zip file and then extracted it to my desktop. When i try to install it the command line will pop up for a split second then nothing. What is going wrong?

slowednblowed - Try doing the cmd stuff and see if you can get adb shell.

I don't understand why we're not seeing more write-ups using apps like root explorer.
  • Copy files to sdcard
  • Open root explorer app
  • Backup old files
  • Copy & Paste new ones. *

BadaBing - BadaBoom!


* NOTE: I did have to change the permissions of each of those two files once I pasted them in the proper folder, but that was the only hiccup.

Thanks, I thought maybe I had screwed up a setting or file somewhere since I am far from stock at this point. Seems strange that this is necessary though since dolphin worked fine without it.

Another note: The date field in Orkut registration causes the browser to FC whereas dolphin worked fine..

whoo, I'm posting this from the MT browser on my Droid running 2.1. My only gripe is that I'll have to redo my bookmarks.

Default Gallery 2.1

OK I downloaded and installed gallery 2.1 and I like it, its working well. However, when I click on one of the pic thumbnails and the pic comes up, it looks very pixelated and not clear at all. I can't figure out how to get them to be clear.

Anyone? Thanks

Does it stay pixelated? Mine does that but sharpens in a second or two
