    Have Fun!

    [NOTE:] if you experience issues like permanent restart of the apps, try this:
    [Note2:] The google App might bring you an error with astro, that it is not installed, just ignore, it IS installed!!
    Do a battery pull
    boot again
    uninstall the APK
    reboot
    install the APK again

    That worked for me so far, no issues anymore. Try it!

    You'll also need to remove the old gallery unless you want two apps named gallery. To do that, you will have to use adb. Does anyone know if we need to remove the old clock app after installing 2.1's clock?


    I just tried to download the clock directly from my Droid and it was unable to extract the file. The error message says "java.util.ZipException: Expected End of Central Directiry signature". Is this because I need to download the .apk that has already been unzipped?

    Thanks OP! I was just wondering about this last night since I went back to 2.0.1. A couple issues so far though: When I open the new Gallery it only shows my Camera and Handycards files with pictures???? It will show the other Wallpaper folders I created and the number of photos they should have but when I open them they are just blanks???? Also I was hoping that we could get the Picasa Web Album integration too is that possible? Lastly being relatively new to Android if I can figure out the few bugs I'm having could someone post terminal instructions for how to remove the 2.0.1 Gallery. Thanks again everyone!

    Thanks OP, hopefully 2.1 itself is not too far off in the future.

    How do people use the 2.1 Clock? It seems like a lot of fluff for just managing alarm clocks. Is it supposed to be a Docking mode for those without the dock?

    And the 2.1 Gallery, while also fluffed up, is far superior to 2.0.1 Gallery.

    Yeah I downloaded the 2.1 apk posted and installed the 2.1 media gallery. My questions were about the 2.1 gallery sorry if I miss spoke. I did get a notifiaction asking permission for picasa web albums password but they never showed up in the 2.1 gallery. Also when I was running 2.1 it would recognize the wallpaper folders I had created and now that I'm running the 2.1 gallery on 2.0.1 it just shows them blank but numbered with invisible photos???? weird

    To remove the old gallery, (busybox required):
    Code:
    adb shell
    $ su
    # mount -o remount,rw /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
    # /path/to/busybox mv /system/app/Gallery.apk /system/app/Gallery.bak
    # sync
    # exit
    $ exit

    The 2.1 Clock can replace the ugly multimedia clock. The first time you insert in dock it will give you a choice, check the default box and then select "clock" and it will default to the 2.1 clock everytime you put it in the dock.

    FAR superior version and the dimmer dims it a LOT, perfect for nightime since it is not so bright. PLUS if you long hold the "dimmer button" it will switch to a "green" night lite type display.

    VERY COOL!!

    Thanks guys for the remove directions! Also I moved my wallpaper folder to the root of the sd card from its place in my downloads folder and that fixed the phantom photos! Now if only I could sync my picasa albums up......
