XDAndroid Done For The Build


Well guys this whole month I have not posted much Android news and since I usually limit myself to 5 a month, here is another story. It seems one of the most popular Android porting team is done porting/tweaking for Froyo to HTC devices. In a recent article by Pocketnow, the guys seem to have come as close to perfection as they can and are living it there for now. Their latest version is said to be noticeable faster, smoother, and cuts boot time by a significant number.

Here is the change log:

  • FINAL 17.09.10
    FRX01 by stinebd alt
  • Added full language pack
  • Added Chinese and Japanese IMEs
  • Boot animation speedup (ro.opengles.version=1 sync from upstream)
  • GApps package update (thanks to CyanogenMod)
  • Replace Gallery3D with Gallery, for stability improvement
  • Several changes to enable userland Camera support (from bzo, still needs kernel support)
  • Userland built-in WiFi tethering support for Rhodium (rootfs changes and testing needed)
  • Signed XDAndroid release packages
  • Updated startup configs
  • Using andboot as default root directory

Since all good things have to come to an end… I guess this is over for now and hopefully these guys will return when Android 3.0 is released for more porting.

Headover to XDA and your device’s forum for the download links.
