    ********************************************



    SO people dont have to hunt through the 30+ pages here are the "fixes" so far that have been made for the 2.1 Rev 0.0.1 Rom.

    All instructions are on the assumption that you are placing the files on the ROOT of the SDCARD and you have a folder already created on the root of the SD called Backup.


    T-CDMA 64 Fix



    Add Corporate Calendar Back



    Add Animated Wallpapers




    Enable Programming Menu




    Missing apps on Market Fix


    Thanks goes out to the people that have fixed these things :)

    Please let me know if I missed anyone and I will try to keep this up to date!

    I updated last night and my GPS works fine. I have seen others say the same, so I am assuming that issue has been solved. The lack of backlighting for the keyboard is my biggest gripe right now.

    My experiences with falling victim to ROM development in the XDA arena on my WinMo device has made me gun-shy in making this leap. The official update is "only" a month away, right?

    Other than a few cosmetic changes, there's not that much of a difference between it and 2.0.1. Certainly nothing worth bricking your phone over if you don't feel comfortable messing with it. I definitely didn't feel very confident, but luckily we have some great folks around here who were willing to help.

    it is not seeing a backup folder on ur sd

    mkdir /sdcard/Backup/

    also it appears it is having a issue moving it from system to the sd

    cp /system/build.prop /sdcard/Backup/build.prop

    ^run that and it will jsut make a copy instead of trying to move it

    not to steer too far off topic in this thread, but the bricking part never really scared me as much as the usability part. my droid is 10x better than my old winmo phone and i want it to stay that way. ;)

    Not to sway your mindset, but I just updated to 2.1 earlier today and I think its very much worth it. Seems smoother and faster. Everything works for me (except backlight of keyboard). Really like the new gallery and app launcher.

    Get this when I try to move build.prop from sdcard to /system/

    The command is written wrong on the first page. You need to do:
    Code:
     
    dd if=/sdcard/build.prop of=/system/build.prop

    So, any line in any of the fixes on the first page, that are similar, should end the same way?

    e.g.
    dd if=/sdcard/ProgramMenu.apk of=/system/app/
    really should be
    dd if=/sdcard/ProgramMenu.apk of=/system/app/ProgramMenu.apk

    dd if=/sdcard/LiveWallpapers.odex of=/system/app/
    really should be
    dd if=/sdcard/LiveWallpapers.odex of=/system/app/LiveWallpapers.odex

    Thanks mammlouk, that did the trick!
    Also, a Backup folder must be created first for those files getting sent to it.

    Someone needs to correct it then in the OP.

    I sent him a pm about the dd changes, maybe you could let him know about the backup folder.

    Quick question from a noob... If I want to be able to download the apps I cant see on the market that I had before I updated to 2.1 do I simply download the stated file, insert it into the root of my sd, then go to terminal emulator type in

    su
    mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
    dd if=/system/build.prop of=/sdcard/Backup/build.prop.bak
    dd if=/sdcard/build.prop of=/system/
    chmod 644 /system/build.prop
    mount -o remount,r -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system



    line for line, sync and then reboot? Do I use terminal emulator and then sync through root helper and reboot?

    I would just use adb, much better to work with. Don't forget to add the build.prop to the line(where I put it in bold)
    Also you'll need to create a Backup folder on your sdcard.

    adb shell
    su
    mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
    dd if=/system/build.prop of=/sdcard/Backup/build.prop.bak
    dd if=/sdcard/build.prop of=/system/build.prop
    chmod 644 /system/build.prop
    mount -o remount,r -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
