    The new version seems much more unstable.
    It crashed now every time after a a few minutes (and I don't mean the fall-asleep-to-death bug). When crashed, not even telnet worked.
    If somebody has the first (older) version, keep it and don't delete it like me!

    anyone know how well this works on a pre +/2?
    and does the phone firmware itself work?
    if the current version is so buggy I will wait until it is updated again, but that seems to happen pretty often

    why is this thread relevant to other handhelds?
    wouldn't this suit the pre sub forum better?

    what version of android is this? i still cant see an answer.....
    are there plans to dual boot this in the works?
    O2 UK Pre Plus, Official (German) ROW webOS 2.1

    @innocentbystander:
    I don't think the phone firmware works currently. On the current version it crashed always after about 30-90 seconds. The first version was more stable, but I don't have that one anymore.

    @7 fissurez:
    Yes, this thread should be in the Pre sub forum.
    I don't know which version of Android it is. And I can't check at the current build because it crashes all 30-90 seconds...
    On the todo-list of the Google code page there is dual boot listed (see also first post).

    I have an Ubuntu live CD; I'm ready to try this out. =]
  8.    #48  
    I try make simple commented copy&paste howto....
    path /home/ubuntu/mix is for Ubuntu Live, replace to your own loginname/directory if you not runing LiveCD

    Prepare
    in Terminal on desktop:

    Code:
    # download kernel and rootfs
    wget http://android-on-pre.googlecode.com/files/uImage.usbnet
    wget http://android-on-pre.googlecode.com/files/mix.tar.00
    wget http://android-on-pre.googlecode.com/files/mix.tar.01
    
    # join and unpack rootfs
    cat mix.tar.00 mix.tar.01 > mix.tar
    tar xvf mix.tar
    
    # create data image for saving
    cd mix
    ./pre-run.sh
    cd ..
    Code:
    # install NFS server
    sudo apt-get install nfs-kernel-server
    
    # configure NFS server
    sudo bash
    echo "/home/ubuntu/mix/ *(rw,insecure,no_subtree_check,sync,no_root_squash)" >> /etc/exports
    /etc/init.d/nfs-kernel-server restart
    exit
    
    # configure usb network
    sudo bash
    echo -e "auto usb0\n\niface usb0 inet static\naddress 192.168.0.200\nnetmask 255.255.255.0\n" >>/etc/network/interfaces
    exit

    Run
    in Terminal on desktop

    Enable Developer Mode, or skip next code and:
    RemoveBattery/HoldVolUP/PlugUSB/PlaceBatteryBack/UnHoldVolUp.
    Code:
    # restart to recovery mode
    novaterm
    tellbootie recover
    ...wait for show big USB logo on Pre...
    Code:
    # setup boot parameters
    novaterm
    ... press ENTER...
    Code:
    setenv bootargs "root=/dev/nfs init=/init nfsroot=192.168.0.200:/home/ubuntu/mix/,v3 ip=192.168.0.202:192.168.0.200:192.168.0.200:255.255.255.0::usb0:"
    Run another terminal
    Code:
    # boot kernel into Pre memory
    novacom boot mem:// < uImage.usbnet
    And now wait some time...

    For remote access to Palm:
    Code:
    telnet 192.168.0.202

    You know?
    I've always like that when members update post #1 so it's easier to find.

    Thanks,

    Hi,

    Great work on the port of android

    I have tried this on my Palm Pre- (German GSM QWERTZ) version and get the following error during boot...

    cy8mrln: scan timed out

    I believe this is the touchscreen controller.

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks,
    Greg

    I'd like to report that this won't work on a device running 2.1 until the Ubuntu Novacom drivers are updated.

    greg_roll: I have too Palm Pre- German GSM QWERTZ
    cy8mrln: scan timed out is show sometime for me too, but booted ok.
    what howto you use for setup ? sure you have Your right nfs directory in /etc/exports and setenv bootarg ?

    innocentbystander: strange, i'm not update novacom and have installed 1.0.56 from SDK 1.x. Tested on Ubuntu 10.04 and 10.10.

    No, works fine with a Palm Pre (minus) with webOS 2.1.0. webOS version isn't important for recovery mode.
    @greg_roll:
    Did you run "sudo ifconfig usb0 192.168.0.200" when booting Android?
    Just try it a few more times
  16.    #56  
    pcworld: manualy "sudo ifconfig usb0 192.168.0.200" is not need if usb0 is set permanently in /etc/network/interfaces. In me howto on post #48 is this done automaticaly with lines under # configure usb network or manual way is descripted at project Wiki TryAndroidNow.

    Did you install the 2.1 SDK?
  18. #58  
    no, just Java and Novacom. I need the entire SDK? Or do I just need to be able to get into recovery mode?
  19.    #59  
    SDK not needed, only novacom

    edit:
    i added to post #48 missed info about enabling developer mode before restart to recovery mode using novaterm
