    GREEK35T Android 2.1 [ROM] as of 24DEC2009 0001 Hours

    All of these bug fixes have been tested live prior to release-



    +Bug Fixes in Ver 0.0.3

    -New 2.6.29 Kernal with tethering capability. You will have to install that software on your own. Our gratitude does out to it's development team. This also enabled better functionality with the backlight issue.

    -Updated wifi drivers to go with the new Kernel. Thanks to the same team of devs.

    -Programming Menu + dialer issues Fixed THANKS 2BIT!

    -Keyboard Backlight - Working ok. Degraded functionality but useable. Sometimes must go into stanby and come out to start the power manager. After that works fairly consiatantly.

    -GPS accuracy / glitches - I have not had any problems with GPS in this new version. Agps works initially and then it got a fix within 6 meters and it showed me right at my house. Hopefully it was just installation issues. And for clarification I did have both boxes checked in my settings

    -magicdroidapp su - works well but some dont like it. It's been outed by new kernel for ADB shell. You just get a # now. may still be active if using terminals on the handset.

    -Some Market Apps not available - Fix was in build.prop. To verify this fix, look at phone info in settings. The firmware version should say 2.1 and the build number ERD72. We know though that this is not really the case.

    -Corperate Calander added back in

    AllDroid.org - View topic - VER 0.0.3 Released Here! See the post for changelog info...

    Is it any faster? 2.1 generally ran pretty sluggish on the phone, with a lot of room for GUI smoothness improvements.

    This new release is slick.

    Still having some quirks with the keyboard light. Any fix. GPS works great for me. Really no lag that I see (as compared to 2.01).

    Now have to investigate tethering and such.

    What shell is used by default in this kernel?

    Can't change brightness manually .. auto brightness only changes by about one or two notches.

    Is it just me or am I missing the Alarm Clock application?

    I have read through the post at AllDroid and here, does this allow for out-of-the-box installation of android-wifi-tether? (Avoiding the many steps in the beginning of the other topic's tutorial? -- kernel build, etc.)

    USB Host?

    I am curious if the usb chip on droid can be set to be in host mode and if these ROMs support that and include drivers for a USB mass storage device?

    Based on the OP, you should be able to skip to steps 3 and 4 (install the android-wifi-tether app, and patch it for the droid).

    Merry Christmas

    Runs pretty well so far. Live wallpaper is sluggish when sliding between screens.

    i keep telling myself that once they get the kinks ironed out that im gonna do this but i feel like by the time everything is working 100% it will prolly be time for the official release of 2.1 on the droid

    its sorta funny cuz i always jailbroke my ipod first thing but that opened up so many new functions that you would have never gotten, android on the other hand is so much different because rooting on the droid seems (for the most part) to just get you things early instead of having to wait for the official release, as opposed to never getting them at all

    Just wait for the dev community to get up and runnig full speed, then you will start seeing things that you will probably never see in official releases,. ;)

    It could just be me but i still cant get tethering to work. I am not getting errors execpt for the one in the app. My error is Unable to start teathering which leads me to believe that i am not installing the teather.txt rite. Does anyone know which one we should use? I tried tether-2.txt but its a no go

    Well I hope you are right, I loved jailbreaking my ipods but at this point the rooting seems to just be for the impatient, i really hope some new stuff comes out soon
