I've posted only one version and after that I've edited the wiki for readability and for adding the Gingerbread version as cme suggested a few posts above (so, I've named the old link "Froyo version" to differ from the Gingerbread one)

Yeah, I realized that after I looked at the wiki history. Something must have just gone slightly off with my second install or download. I deleted and reinstalled from the previous (identical version) and it worked fine, so I just assumed (wrongly) that something had changed. Thanks for your work j0.

It does not sync

Also, in Settings/Accounts&Sync both check boxes are set but it says "Sync is OFF" for my Google Account.

If I tap the account, an empty list is shown unter "Data & synchronisation"

When I try to add an event to the calendar, it says "you have no calendars"

Strange, I tried the gmail apk and it synced just fine (I still prefer the mobile webmail version for the T1), so I guess the calender should sync as well...?

Hm... in the meantime I re-installed Framework and Market and re-entered my account data -> didn't help.

I already bought an app via Froyo market on the T1 - worked great! Even after reinstall it showed previously installed apps.

The T1 is my first Android device... Is there something I have to change in my existing Google account in order to make it work with the T1? I logged into my Google account from desktop PC, but I was unable to find anything Android related in it....

Or should I give the Gingerbread Market Package a try?

Is there any notable difference between Froyo and Gingerbread Market, despite package size? Someone said, it will provide more apps, but this was somewhat disclaimed later on...

You need to install GoogleCalendarSyncAdapter.apk.
With that app you can activate synchronisation.

For me that worked.

Thanks a lot! It works

It also helped me to find a site that tells a lot about installing google apps:

https://senk9.wordpress.com/2010/12/...-device-phone/

And I added a Google Apps Howto to the wiki: http://wiki.mobileread.com/wiki/PRST...ks#Google_Apps

BTW - has anybody tested YAAM market? http://www.yaam.mobi/

I've tried that too, at least 10 times but it didn't help. Can anyone tell me why and how to install market?
PS please noted that I've successfully installed googleservicesframework.apk.

I'd like to have an alternative to Link2SD that maps the _whole_ data partition to SD....

Currently, the sdext2-Partition seems to be mounted via install-recovery.sh to /data/sdext2

On could modify that to map it to /data, but.... how to? Is there a debug mode one can enter in order to remout /data without breaking anything?

Yes, if you have enable_adb installed, but I think this doesn't work with the last firmware version (I don't have yet upgraded):

1- Reboot in recovery mode (by using a MsDOS Window):
Code:
ebook_msc.exe name "PRS-T1" um recovery
(ebook_msc.exe comes with every boroda package)

2- Install the new "Gadget Serial" device discovered by Windows: Use the "gserial.inf" in boroda packages for 32bit windows or search in the web for "linux-cdc-acm.inf" if you are using 64bit windows

3- Now you have a new COM Port (for instance, COM10: )

4- And after that you can use "teraterm", "HyperTerminal" or any other serial terminal to begin a serial connection with the new port COM10:

5- [at the black screen, press ENTER] User: root / no password

6- Do what you want! Some tips (if you need some help):
Code:
# mount the READER
mount /dev/mmcblk0p1 /mnt/sd
#
# make a backup of data partition
dd if=/dev/mmcblk2p9 of=/mnt/sd/mmcblk2p9.img
#
# make a backup of system partition
dd if=/dev/mmcblk2p10 of=/mnt/sd/mmcblk2p10.img
#
# mount data partition
mkdir /tmp/data
mount -t auto /dev/mmcblk2p9 /tmp/data
#
# mount system partition
mkdir /tmp/system
mount -t auto /dev/mmcblk2p10 /tmp/system
#
############################
# CHANGE WHAT YOU WANT !!! #
############################
#
sync
umount /dev/mmcblk2p9
umount /dev/mmcblk2p10
umount /dev/mmcblk0p1
#
reboot
7- If something goes wrong, repeat from 1st step and, instead of 6th one, you have to do:
Code:
# mount the READER
mount /dev/mmcblk0p1 /mnt/sd
#
# recover data partition from backup
dd if=/mnt/sd/mmcblk2p9.img of=/dev/mmcblk2p9
#
# recover system partition from backup (only if needed)
dd if=/mnt/sd/mmcblk2p10.img of=/dev/mmcblk2p10
#
sync
umount /dev/mmcblk0p1
#
reboot
NOTE 1:
I can't remember if devices are /dev/mmcblk... or /dev/block/mmcblk... You have to use the right one.
NOTE 2:
With old firmware versions, the backup/restore procedure can also be done from normal mode by using:

To make the backup:
Code:
ebook_msc.exe name "PRS-T1" get /dev/block/mmcblk2p10 c:\mmcblk2p10.img
ebook_msc.exe name "PRS-T1" get /dev/block/mmcblk2p9 c:\mmcblk2p9.img
To restore the backup:
Code:
ebook_msc.exe name "PRS-T1" put c:\mmcblk2p10.img /dev/block/mmcblk2p10
ebook_msc.exe name "PRS-T1" put c:\mmcblk2p9.img /dev/block/mmcblk2p9
Anyway, although more simple, this method is not recommended as you are reading/writing a "live" system (you can have problems with opened files,...) It's best and safe to use the good old "dd" method in a stopped system

Great! Many thanks for so much valuable details!

Something I'd also ever wanted to do is an fsck for the data partition because it looks like doing reset corrupts the filesystem. Now it is at my hand

I have latest firmware, so let's see if it works... ebook_msc is said to have stopped working with that.... http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho....php?p=1874273 But maybe I get a workaround....
