Where Is My Toy ?

COMPLETE Android 2.1 Nexus One ROM

This is Open Eclair brought to you by Chris Soyars, Wes Garner and Friends.

You asked for it and you GOT IT! A COMPLETE 2.1 Nexus One ROM on the G1.

2.1 Lockscreen
RAM Hack (canceled out if you use Launcher or Live Wallpapers =p)
Nexus Lancher2
Live Wallpapers (some still don't work) Market ones do =)
New 2.0 Eclair apps

Things I like:
All the 2.0 Eclair apps and features
All the 2.1 NEXUS features! (You asked, you got 'em!)
Speed (fast for Eclair)
STABLE (a lot more than KingKlicks 2.1 Hero ROM)
Its an "OPEN" ROM that's being tag teamed by 2 (and more) awesome devs (Chris Soyar, Wes Garner) meaning it will continue to advance =)

Don't Like:
Slow (compared to Super D)
Buggy launcher2 and Nexus gallery, got a few kernel panics causing restart and a frozen screen. Still fairly early so there's room for improvement)
Live wallpapers and Launcher are just for "show." Take up HUGE resources (if G1's weren't so limited this wouldn't be a problem)
Video doesn't work.

This ROM is for people that felt like they were missing out being "stuck with" 1.6
Chris Soyar and Wes Garner have done the impossible and they deserve rightful praise and DONATIONS.

If you like their work show your thanks in donations.

They are doing all this for free and like I said, they've accomplished the "impossible" for US and for nothing.
Show them you appreciate their time and effort and that the ANDROID COMMUNITY IS THE GREATEST! =)

Get the ROM here:

EDGE Connectivity Settings for Vodafone India

In this post I am writing How to get Vodafone GPRS settings for our Iphone.
No JailBreaking Required !! !!

You will see a new "Profile"option in your Settings >> General in your iPhone

And VOLA!! !! You have EDGE Connectivity in your iPhone !! !!

Why I am writing this :
I am owning an iPhone4 in India[Chennai] and went to Vodafone Store for GPRS settings.The executive told me Sir,For iPhone we have a special package and the Tariff is as follows :
Pay Rs.100 as monthly Rental and you will be charged 10 Paise for 10 KB and No Booster/Add-On`s available.
I felt really bad and did a quite research and made this working !! !!

Remember we are not Hacking Vodafone server/settings :P !! !! We are Just creating a profile in our iPhone for getting the normal EDGE/GPRS settings !! !!

I have activated 98 RS GPRS pack and the speed of connection is Quite OK [SPEED : 0.09Mbps]
Something is better than Nothing !!

Try These In-case you are not receiving the EDGE connectivity :
  1. Make sure you have turned this on your iPhone Settings>>CellularData>>ON
  2. SMS ACT VMC to 144
  3. wait for reply from 144

iPhone3G with T-Mobile Problems.

Well, I solved my own problem and I thought I would share for anyone else that experiences it.

Problem: RedSn0w updates the BaseBand when it is used with iOS 4.2.1.
It updates it to the correct version for iOS 4.2.1 (05.15.04)
Baseband 05.15.04 is NOT Unlockable.

Solution: Using RedSn0w (the same program that messed it up in the first place)
Load your IPSW and select "Install iPad Baseband".
You get a warning popup because there is a risk of losing use of GPS when you update the BB and it also makes it impossible to go back to the original BB, which obviously voids the warranty.
Boot into DFU and let RedSn0w do its thing.

Once the BB is updated to 6.15 install UltraSn0w from Cydia and your phone will be Unlocked.

Hope this helps someone.

Useful apps:
FuzzyBand-Check your Baseband and Bootloader version.
UltraSn0w and RedSn0w.

HTC Status Bar for CM6 and Gingerbread ROMs

This is a black status bar theme that looks just like the one you had back in the days when you were running the Eris OTA ROM. This theme is for medium resolution phones like the Eris, Hero, etc.

Gingerbread ROMs

Tested with GSB 1.5 and 2.2, but it should install just fine on any medium-res GB rom. For now there is a single theme file that updates the top status bar. I haven't yet ported the pull-down notification panel.


Download the attached file and then install using ZipThemer with these instructions. ZipThemer is free from the market.

CM6-based ROMs (Froyo)

I developed and tested it with KaosFroyo v32, v37, and v39. It will work on most any CM6 ROMs with the same screen resolution as the Eris.

There are two themes, one which just sets the color and icons in the top status bar, and another that updates the notification pull-down panel. Install both if you want the full HTC notification experience.


This is now a ZipThemer theme, but also remains compatible with MetaMorph.

1) Install the ZipThemer version 1.1 or above from the Market. Its free!

2) Download the attached Also download for the full HTC notification experience. The first sets the top status bar, the second modifies the pull-down notification panel.

3) Fire up ZipThemer.

4) Click "+Theme" and browse to, then select, Repeat if you also want to install

5) Optionally select a different output zip file, and/or edit the ouptut filename using the "+Output" and "*Output" buttons.

6) If installing both the status bar and notification panel at the same time, expand the HtcBlackStatusBar item and uncheck the "CM Tweak Extras file", leaving the corresponding item checked under HtcNotificationBar.

7) Click "Built It!" to create the flashable file. The output file is signed and ready for flashing! But don't flash yet, you have to set the notification text colors in separate steps, so continuing on...

8) Press Menu, Settings -> CyanogenMod Settings -> User Interface -> Tweak extras -> Select a Theme. Select HtcBlackStatusBar if you are only installing the status bar changes, or HtcNotificationPanel if installing both the bar and panel themes.

Click "OK".

10) Now boot into recovery and flash your update.

The file can be used to return the status bar and notification panel to the stock Froyo look and feel. This theme also contains a cmparts_ui.xml for setting the clock and text colors back to black. E.g., same instructions as above to install.

HTC Sense Transparent LockScreen

Originally created by JsChiSurf over in the Hero forums via my encouragement  This version is made for the Eris, it is not the same as the Hero version (which doesn't work properly for us).

This is a modification of the STOCK HTC Sense lockscreen that removes the background so you can see your homescreen behind it.

*Users need to already be comfortable with using 'adb' I won't be providing support on that since there are numerous threads with instructions all around.*

**Before** pushing the apk into that folder, you'll need to FIRST perform the following steps to remove the stock lock wallpapers from loading, as well as any cached custom wallpaper you have applied. You can perform these via adb as listed, or if you have Root Explorer (on the marketplace), you can navigate to the folders listed and delete the items that way.

adb remount
adb shell
cd /data/misc/lockscreen
rm *

cd /system/customize/resource
rm htc_wallpaper*

Note: You may or may not have anything to delete in /system/customize/resource, so if you get an error message while using adb, don't worry. MD5: 9423D8C3D6CBBF3E084CD185130F9649
*APK NOTE: APKs are case sensitive, be sure you install this without renaming it, or it wont overwrite your original APK*

After you extract the zip to your sdk/tools directory perform the following (case sensitive):

adb push HtcLockScreen.apk /system/app
adb reboot
If you get "read-only" errors, try "adb remount" OR "adb shell", then, "su", then "mount -o rw,remount /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system" and then the other commands.

EDIT: Clock-less version now available for download! Same instructions apply.

Clock-less Info: **Since some users may have performed the 'experienced users' steps below, an Android image has been added to 'lockscreen_topedge.png' so that it isn't 100% transparent.
If you want to remove this image: First, download the ZIP below with the PNGs, take any one of those and rename it to 'lockscreen_topedge.png, open the lock apk in your favorite zip file manager (winzip, winrar, 7-zip), navigate to "res\drawable-normal-mdpi" and drag your newly-renamed PNG in there. If a dialog pops up, be sure you select the option that has NO compression, this is usually called "Store."**
Make a post if you have any problems NOT related to 'adb.' Again, support is not provided for that.

Clockless MD5: B604B530E02C47DA81AD8B4563BE71D2

Now some optional additional steps for **experienced users only** (I suck at tech support so if you ask something, I'll try to answer, but no guarantees):

If you put the PNGs included in the zip below into '\res\drawable-mdpi', it will remove the HTC "Arc" on the lockscreen. Now, to create your own Arc replacement, all you'll need to do is go into 'HtcLockScreen.apk\res\drawable-normal-mdpi' and change the lockscreen_topedge.png to your liking A much easier change than fiddling with your resources apk everytime and its only 1 image to change, instead of trying to line up three. Of course, if you remove the Arc and do not change your lockscreen_topedge.png, you will have a completely invisible lockscreen, so don't freak yourself out, just make something for that PNG.

*Does not seem to work with Hero or Legend ROMs*
