I sent this out via Android community forums site...But I know you're the person to go to that best can help me from what I've read (hint, stroke.
There are a lot of you bright computer techs out there speaking way above my computer lingo and knowledge...and I'm lost! I just got my Entourage pocket Edge Jr with OS 1.6 dingo on it with a 1.8 update. I've got PE Ermine zip loaded to MSDcard and know I need to load the V1.01 beta from vicinc over at Woot but afraid to add that one too for fear of borking my book.
And after all this, does this mean I have Froyo then loaded? If not, what steps need I take to get that loaded?
Then what do I need and what steps must I take to get a fully functioning Market on my PE Jr?
And again, please remember I'm computer dense and need laymen language and baby stepped through. THNX much for any and all help provided.
All this talk @ ?rooting with z4? and using phones with ?Titanium backup?...I am soooo lost. And this ?LauncherPro??
I was told @ a site Android Community - For Application Development but can't get it loaded up...supposed to have full "unadualterated access to the Market without restrictions..."
Request HELP. Don't know how to repay you but other than to pass what I've learned on to others like me and reiterate my thanks to the good samaritan computer genious that takes the time to help me. (I was a logistician in the US Marines; not a computer tech.) Regards, ptsenter//
FIRST thing - learn what your PE can do as it stands.
When you know how to use it then you will want to upgrade to 2.2 BUT remember that is BETA software and may cause problems.
DO NOT try rooting your PE unless YOU KNOW EXACTLY what you are doing - in 99% of usage it is not necessary to root the PE, in fact many of the problems you read of here have been caused by doing just that.
Having access to the Android market is not essential - in fact several of the newer apps available there do not work on the PE, you have to go to alternative sites and download older versions that do work.
To update to v 2.2 you need the PE Ermine update.zip - make absolutely sure it is the PE one otherwise you will be in real trouble. Then read the updating threads on this forum to learn what you must do and how to sidestep the problems that might appear.
It would also help if you read more if the threads on this forum about using your PE.
Basically I am saying 'learn to walk before you try to run', that way you don't end up flat on your face with a nice expensive door stop.
