Pocket Edge 2.2 NEW Firmware


* V1.01
beta pocketedge firmware thanks to ptsenter generosity.
mirror added here.
Updated: added some missing apps and libraries to enTourage's Ermine: Google Maps, Market, Gmail, Talk, Voice Search, etc. based on CyanogenMod 6 gapps-hdpi-20101114-signed.zip.
* V1.01.001 Certain parameters tweaked for better speed. please report back.
Added 10 inch Edge test 1.01.01 Ermine here.
Usual disclaimer: we are not responsible for anything which might happen to your device.
Update via Rotate+Menu on boot, rename to update.zip and copy to sdcard. Should keep your existing settings, and you should be able to revert to stock if things are going wrong.
What does work:
1. All Standard Stock functionality
2. Reported safe. Does not break E-INK apps
3. Can Revert Safely to Stock
4. Nobody borked the device yet by using this rom.
5. Google Apps (except Market, yet), log in youtube app with your user name and password and the google account will be added to accounts.

v1.02
It includes browser updated by javese: browser can present txt files now.
Confirmed to work:
- Voice Search
- Gmail
- Google Maps
Some third-party apps, which used to fail to run or even be installed, can now be installed and run, e.g.,
- BofA
- e-trade pro.
- etc.
Market fails to run as it requires to be provisioned by cell provider. Market fix as in forum can be applied.
Some apps or some functions of them which depends on cell connection, for speech recognition, are not going to run, e.g.,
- Flex T9 speech-to-text function does not work, all other functions do.

Some tool from Ptsenter to make apps more compatible with edge. Please test and report.
This is a windows tool.

Quote:
There are a couple of major reasons apps refused to be installed on PE.
1. when there isn't enough space. Installer takes care if it.
2. some missing components of Android - any version of Ermine 1.xxx takes care of that.
3. app prefers to be installed on an external memory (SD card).
It appears to be a bug in Android in this case and the installation crashes.
Examples are Baby Names and Merriam Webster.
This utility fixes the app to allow it to be installed on an internal memory properly.
It's Win utility. It requires apktool to be already installed and functional.
To install just extract directory from the zip.
To run open Command Prompt, navigate to just created directory and submit

apkfixer

(no parameters).

It opens dialog box where one can select <name>.apk in question.
Select the apk, click Open or just double-click on the name, wait a few seconds until dialog box disappear.
There is a new directory <name> under ApkFixer.
Under that directory there is dist directory.
Within dist directory one can find new fixed apk.
Note:
This fix might not work for apps NOT from Android Market because they're often not signed.

Thanks to ptsenter insistence and generosity of Gunnerp245 we are having the dingo source codes here. Hope they are not useless and they will help the rom chefs.

Also PXA168 source code is here.

we have already found the cause and a solution(probably the only real solution) to the problem. It will take more than just an update.zip file to fix it, but you can do it by following kenniminot's instructions that can be found in the ermine tweaks thread... It does require rooting, among other things...

So this firmware is completely untested? ptsenter (the dev) had stated that his only PE was stuck in hibernation and he was unwilling to use it to test this build. vicinc have you tested this?

That's correct.

I never said that, I said I put it in hibernation just to check how long it's going to hold a charge: after 138.5 hours it still has 22%.

I wish I could test it, but my PE is borked from messing with build.prop and useless android commander. so could not get a way to restore it. yes. hope ptsenter will cat his partitions so I could dd them to mine, hopefully restoring them to a working device which I can use for testing.

Really like the PE.

Could you elaborate a little bit?
Have any Ermine's standard apps got broken, e.g., Readar, Journal?
You did see Market and Gmail?
Can you get logcat and post here or send me by PM? Thanks.

jmgazer in my notion ink usually I have to clear the dalvik cache to get the market working after an upgrade in recovery mode. I have no idea of how to do this on Edge.

I tried the update on a clean 1.6 system. The system seemed to update just fine. Added a lot of the Gapps as well as some HTC apps from the CyanogenMod. The system would allow me to add a gmail account now but would never connect to the Google servers. This problem has happened with other attempts to add the Gapps to the eDGe. I tried the youtube fix and that did allow me to add a gmail account to my system but the market app and gmail app crashed when opened. I ran the golden update and reset the system.

I will work with it more and see what I can come up with. I do have to say to many phone apps in this build.
