That would explain, the reason I'm after the ID changer is so I can get the market working as continual side-loading is getting tiresome. Was having issues doing it the traditional way with push commands (couldn't solve my issue nor could anyone else by the looks of responses)

I have never been able to update the gls.db through the push command. So here is my work around:

1. get the gls.db from your IQ to your PC using the pull command

2. Download SQLite Database Browser from here:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/sqlitebrowser/

3. Insert the Android ID into your gls.db file and save it to .../platform-tools/

4.
Quote:
adb push gls.db /data/data/com.google.android.googleapps/databases
5. Now pull and build the modified build.prop as per instruction on your PC

6.
Quote:
adb push build.prop /system
7. Reboot

Cheers

Thanks for posting this.

First time I'm doing something with android.

I used "Experimental Firmware 20110118.1: Add custom JIT (Icewyng) (requires factory reset)" And with the help of the guide I got the market running also, wasnt exactly accurate anymore prob. outdated a bit but everything works and is running smooth!

Next step is trying to get a2sd running but that shouldn't be a big problem I think.

Keep up the good work!


Edit:

I got a2sd installed after some trouble with my sd.
I do get a msg saying my phone memory is almost full. It does say it has 800MB free space so im puzzeld why i get the msg.

If anyone knows how to get rid of that plz let me know.

The Market stalls during downloads. It just says "starting download..." What is the reason for this?

I've already entered the ID with:
adb shell sqlite3 /data/data/com.google.android.googleapps/databases/gls.db "update meta set intvalue='HIDDENHERE' where name='androidId'";

and then i tried:
adb shell sqlite3 /data/data/com.google.android.googleapps/databases/gls.db "update meta set intvalue='HIDDENHERE' where name='PocketBook'";

using: Experimental Firmware 20110118.1: Add custom JIT


Edit: ok nvd, I fixed it.

I regenerated the AndriodID, apparently the one I generated before was screwed up somehow. it was the last thing I would suspect.

I have no idea how to get that first page back. That page just adds one extra step to using the IQ.

That page is not particularly useful if you plan to use other readers like aldiko, coolreader, moon+ reader etc.

Right now I have the last Experimental Firmware 20110118.1: Add custom JIT (Icewyng) running very good.

Gmail an Gtalk are working good.
The Android ID was introduced with a little problems but now the Market is working very well.
I use a 2Gig microSD
1st Partition: Primary/FAT32/~1800Mb
2nd Partition: Primary/EXT3/~200MB

I partitioned the ext3 wit Gparted Live Cd

But I have a problem with de a2sd.

Reading the tutorial of the set up and as the a2sd is right now in the directory /system/xbin my first command was this:
* adb shell chmod 755 /system/xbin/a2sd

But I have this response:
Unable to chmod /system/xbin/a2sd: Read-only file system

I don´t understand this because i can enter with root explorer and change the permissions.

If I type:
* adb shell
* $ a2sd setup
I have:
$ a2sd setup
$: not found

Please someone that can give me a hand xD

Thanks and Greetings.

adb is done on your PC and not through your root explorer. There are a number of threads on the forum showing how adb is installed. Look at the IQ Market working thread to start.

Coredump-EE,
I was looking through some of the sites to learn a bit about extracting and packaging ".img".

My question is whether the system.img is independent of the other images in the ROM. That is if I make changes to the system.img, do I need to make corresponding changes to the other images?

Secondly, If I add or remove apks from the app folder in system.img, do I need to make corresponding changes in other folders within the system.img?

Thanks
