    -Flash 10.1 APK

    Adobe Flash Player 10.1_10.1.61.68.apk

    Overclock Kernels (fixes wifi too) - Thanks dodger55fan!




    1.1-v32kernel.zip - This is actually 1.2GHz

    1.25-v32kernel.zip - This is actually 1.1GHz

    If you can't boot into Clockwork recovery after flashing this ROM, flash SP Recovery with ROM manager (alternate recovery option at the bottom), reboot, then flash Clockwork back and it should be good. You can reboot into recovery to verify it worked. Don't ask why this works!

    You must repeat this every time you open the browser, or else you will get a proxy error

    Fab...what are your impressions so far? And, I'm sure everyone will be wondering this, does it have Flash?

    Market is very slow right now, but you can bet that Flash'll be the first thing I download :)

    Ok,. I am waiting for the flood of "Do I have to wipe anything" questions. Yes! Wipe data, system, cache and boot! (I'm just being proactive).

    Getting ready to flash. Haven't gone to the other thread yet, but are there overclocking kernels compatible?

    As the warning on Mydroidworld stated, No WIFI dammit! Just getting an error message (even after rebooting). For me right now this is a dealbreaker. I'm sure it will be worked out soon. The launcher looks like ADW but does not have the hidden app dock. I will try the ADW and see how it runs.

    Couldn't find flash in the market, or by following the link on Adobe's page. The market is literally taking me like a minute to find and install a single app. :(

    Alright, it's not sounding all that great at this point. I think I'll hold off for now. :eek:

    Interesting (but useless) Market widget. The official Twitter app comes pre-installed. There is also a silly Home Screen Tips widget (yawn). More news to follow...

    No wifi means it's a total deal-breaker for me. I live in the middle of nowhere in Wisconsin and have very little to no 3G when I'm at home. I NEED wifi to do anything on my phone. It's nice that we have this, but I'm going to wait until this issue is resolved before I try it.

    Mmmm....FroYo and LauncherPro are a match made in heaven. :D

    P3 changed the kernel to protect the original source. I don't know what that even means but it breaks wifi. So far I've been doing really well with 3G in my area without wifi. That's only because I downgraded my baseband. I wonder if I install this will I have to downgrade again?

    Anyone tried changing the kernel yet, to Bekit, P3Droid, or jdlfg (or whatever combination of letters the cool newby guy uses :) ) ?

    3G is working fine for me with the downgraded baseband. Actually, I seem to be getting a little better signal than with 2.1 (I don't think installing this touches whatever baseband is already installed but I am only assuming).

    Alright, screw it, loading up now.

    Good to know. I wonder if this will be put in Rom Manager?

    This doesn't touch the baseband at all. It will remain the same.

    I'm off to the state park, see you guys in the evening. Hopefully a lot of new discoveries by then!!

    Luckily you'll not be tempted to keep tabs on this thread due to no coverage in the caves :D Have fun!

    I tried P3's 1250 kernel and it booted, but then it immediately shut down.

    Hope the cave doesn't rely on WIFI. You will be out of luck...
  23. Seemed to be laggier than BB V1.1 with only an 800MHz kernel. Can we install our own kernels or will we lose features of the new kernel?
  24. shrink57

    shrink57 Android Expert

    So far all reports (at least what I have seen) show that the other Kernels are not working.
  25. Darn. I think I'll stick with BB for a bit until someone makes a custom ROM from 2.2. Come on Pete!
