POST UPDATED ON 29/06/2010, HEAVILY EDITED SO PLEASE REREAD

Ok i thought id clean up this post and rearrange it somewhat. all general detaisl are below, a lot of info has been removedand put into wiki instead.

Current NITDroid Project Status is Below:

NITDroid-N8x0 Port:
NITDroid-N8x0 Development Is currently Halted until N900 is stable. if anyone wants to do any dev on N8x0 they are more than welcome to ask me for details/help though

Link to N8x0 Details And Install How-to:
http://wiki.nitdroid.com/index.php?title=N8x0

NITDroid-N900 Port:
Please remember to report bugs @ http://bugs.nitdroid.com to help us to fix them !!!
--Most Recent RootFS Changelog follows--
[quote=dj_steve]
-- CHANGELOG --
FroYo 2.2 Based(as always for the moment)
Local Version 0.0.5-3
FULL GOOGLE APPS SUPPORT!!! - works perfectly
Lcd density reduced from 240 to 200 - little bit more screen space
Touch Screen Calibration Sorted, near perfect accuracy
Various apps included as per previous changelogs
Init scripts edited in prep for further phone development(no progress as yet)
Restored old Boot Animation
Edited memory management settings to provide speedier experience (in my opin)
Sensors and Accell libs integrated - accell is not perfect
Bluetooth Added
Charging (via Mains) works
Battery Reporting Fixed (obviously LOL)
Swap Partition from maemo activated in android(rarely used but hey try finding an android device with 1gb ram )



This Is the current Active Project and is Moving at a very quick pace of development.
We were also the first NON-Google Device to get a working (albeit unstable) build of FroYo Going that i know of - had it running within ~ 24hours of the source being released

Current Port Info:
* Dual Boot With overclocking in maemo And Fairly Stable
* Using FroYo 2.2
* WiFi Works
* Fairly Fast System
* Keyboard Works
* Sound via Speakers and phone headset.
* Sound recording should work too
keyboard has been remapped as follows:
left + right arrows = duplicate volume controls
up arrow = home (hold for tasklist)
down arrow = back
backspace = backspace

this can be reverted by downloading http://downloads.nitdroid.com/omap_twl4030keypad.kl into the /system/usr/keylayouts folder and replacing the current file

* eMMC/SD Card Mounting is broken in Froyo at moment due to android 'Vold' mounting service throwing tantrums about certain kernel features, it is being looked at and fixed though

Currently Being worked on/looked at:
* Phone/3G
* DSP
* Graphics Accel
* Sound Further Support

More info is Available as well as a install howto at our website http://www.nitdroid.com

Confirmed working on n810.
Was able to connect to my WPA2 network and surf the web. Hardware keyboard was also working.
Performance was not really good though. Wouldnt call it usable yet.
But great work so far! And a big THANK YOU!

first boot is always slower anyway as Donut needs to Dexopt all the apps and it doesnt until you run them so rerunning preused apps will be faster but yep i know its not particually quick, could you do me favour and open the app menu goto dev tools and find the option that says show cpu usage and turn it on, it will give a red and green bar at top of screen can you look at the green bar and see if it moves or seems stuck at a certain level all the time ?

if i do nothing the green bar is always about one millimeter long.
if i try to stress the device, then it wont take more than 1/2 of the screen's width.

so yep, it moves.

Unfortunaly it randomly freezes, so I have to take the battery out often. Sometimes it reboots by itself.
I also get unexpected closes of random applications.

Hmm now I am unable to enable wireless lan. I guess I will wait for a next build. If you want to me to do further tests with this build, let me know.

No matter how often I try to reboot and take the battery out, I am not able to get wireless lan back, it just says "unable to scan for networks" when I try to enable it.

And yes it froze before, when it asked my to type in my wireless key again (for whatever reason), after that wireless seemd dead.
