I followed the instructions but still could not sign onto the gtalk. I will have another look later on today or tomorrow.

Katzki,

Place the IQ_gapps folder in the the ADB's "platform-tools" folder.

If you use windoze, use the red command to copy the folder to the device. That works for me:

adb push IQ_gapps /system instead of adb shell /***** /system

aceflor,

Took me a while to figure out the usb_drivers too. This works for me on Windoze 7. I am assuming you are using the Nook Colour usb_driver.

Hook up your IQ

Start > Right click Computer > Device Manager

Do you see ADB Android device or something like that with an exclamation mark?

If you do, Right click that device

Go to Details tab
Under property, change from "Device Description" to "Hardware Ids"

You will see two lines. For me they are:

USB\VID_18D1&PID_B004&MI_01
USB\VID_18D1&PID_B004&REV_0224&MI_01

Copy the two lines that you see into a notepad for later.

Now you now need to make changes to 2 files:

1. Open up your "adb_usb.ini" (in your .android folder). You will see:
# ANDROID 3RD PARTY USB VENDOR ID LIST -- DO NOT EDIT.
# USE 'android update adb' TO GENERATE.
# 1 USB VENDOR ID PER LINE. 0x2080

Change the 0x2080 to whatever number you have after VID_from the 2 red lines above. For me it is 0x18D1.

So for me, it would be:
# ANDROID 3RD PARTY USB VENDOR ID LIST -- DO NOT EDIT.
# USE 'android update adb' TO GENERATE.
# 1 USB VENDOR ID PER LINE. 0x18D1

save "adb_usb.ini"

2. Now add these two lines to your android_winusb.inf file (in your usb_driver folder):

I look for the first instance of B & N Nook Color and add the 3 red lines above it:

;PocketBook IQ
%SingleAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_18D1&PID_B004&MI_01
%CompositeAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_18D1&PID_B004&REV_0224&MI_01

;B & N Nook Color
%SingleAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_2080&PID_0002
%CompositeAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_2080&PID_0002&MI_01

save "adb_usb.ini"

Now you can go back, right click the device and point to the "adb_usb.ini" file to update the driver.

Hope that helps.

Cheers

I am wondering whether I have the right ub driver though....
I think you're forgetting the step 'I want to choose from a list of drivers on my computer' option. Don't let windows look for the file, you have to point to the file, not just the folder.

after that you can browse to the folder and specify the *.inf file.

@hiaig
that should work also but it's much easier to just manually select the inf file and command windows to use those drivers...

I tried manually selecting the .inf file but my computer for some reason refused to take it. It kept on telling me no drivers found so I had to manually add those lines in myself.

Now back to trying to figure out why I can't sign into GTalk.

Yep, Win 7 does not let you choose a file. Bummer.
BUT... your tip worked Hiaig, many thanks and K on its way to you all guys (and girls if this is the case, sorry, our names are not always very clear on that ;-))!
Now on to the next step and my next Qs, which you will then have to answer for free

I know, I tried that, but before it did not let me choose a file. Now, after having had the device recognised as an Android device thanks to Hiaig, it gives me the possibilities you guys described before. Sorry if I sound daft, but I am usually quite capable with a computer (me being a woman and all ), but I swear to you the option was not available before, it is now and looks quite different as a matter of fact as the version I was staring at 10 minutes ago (and wondering whether I really should have had this bottle of Rioja on the 25th).

May I add to prove my point (no offence intended) that I have indeed dark hair ?

Now RezzZ, stop insinuating I am lame and do help with Gtalk !

Luv, always,
ace

Hi RezzZ, may be a bit of miscommunication on our part. I can get to your screenshot and actually can point to the usb_driver.inf.

But then, my Win7 spinned its wheel for a while and came back with no drivers found etc. etc. so I had to add those lines myself.

Strange Huh?

Not yet, I think it has to do with the gls.db database and the accounts.db.

My understanding from looking at the "emulator" codes is that the google "Intvalue" for AndroidId comes from the meta table of the accounts.db.

Of course, we don't have an account.db in our /data/data/com.google.android.googleapps/databases/

We only have the gls.db database in the above folder. Our IQ account.db is in the /data/system/.... folder.

The IQ's account.db is totally different and missing quite a number of variables from the emulator's database.

May be Icewyng can clarify this:
1. do we need an account.db in the /data/data/com.google.android.googleapps/databases/ folder?
2. do we need to make changes to the IQ account.db?

Erm sortof, You will get permission problems But:

Try creating a file called /etc/udev/rules.d/50-android.rules and
plugging the following line into it:



i figure out that im suppose to put stuff about the id vendor in the file. i used the code sudo lsusb and got this:
Quote:

Bus 001 Device 002: ID 18d1:b004 Google Inc.
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub


I guessed the Google one was correct so:
Quote:

SUBSYSTEM=="usb", SYSFS{Bus 001 Device 002: ID 18d1:b004}=="0bb4", MODE="0666"

Reload udev's configuration (/etc/init.d/udev reload) and try again as
a normal user.
Solved it for me, if you started adb sooner, you need to kill it.
I restarted it with sudo rights, sudo adb start-server

Then follow the manual untill the shell IQ_gapps part, change that to the push bit of page 3, and that will be that, follow the rest of the manual.
