Hello friends,

I currently have Nitdroid v0.0.9 installed on my 16GB memory card. I want to upgrade to Gingerbread.

Please give instructions on how to Install Nitdroid Gingerbread on Memory card step by step for a first time beginner.

I understand we have to do the foll: (please correct where wrong)

1. Download the foll :
a. Nitdroid Gingerbread - http://downloads.nitdroid.com/e-yes/gingerbread.tar.bz2
b. Nitdroid Kernel - http://downloads.nitdroid.com/nitins...nal1_armel.deb
c. Gingerbread Update1 - http://downloads.nitdroid.com/e-yes/...pdate1.tar.bz2
d. Gingerbread Update2 - http://downloads.nitdroid.com/e-yes/...pdate2.tar.bz2

2. Copy the above downloaded files to: /home/user/MyDocs

3. Open Terminal & type :

root
cd /home/user/MyDocs

bzip2 -d gingerbread.tar.bz2
mount /dev/mmcblk1p2 /and
cd /and
rm -rf *
tar xvf /home/user/MyDocs/gingerbread.tar

cd /home/user/MyDocs

dpkg -i nitdroid-kernel-2.6.28-06_final1_armel.deb


Please guide with further steps.
All, please confirm if above steps are right if installing it to memory card with Nitdroid v0.0.9 already preinstalled.

Also, what do I do with the Updates 1&2 which I dowloaded above. Further, there are few new updates as foll:

Update 3: superuser - http://downloads.nitdroid.com/e-yes/...eruser.tar.bz2

Update 4: Update 4: On-screen keyboard (size) - http://downloads.nitdroid.com/e-yes/LatinIME.apk
(copy to /system/app/ directory (from Android root))

Update 5: Update 5: FakeGPS - http://downloads.nitdroid.com/e-yes/gps.nokia.so
(copy to /system/lib/hw/ directory (from Android root))

How to install all these 5 updates ??

Kindly confirm..

Thanks a lot..

Why would you post the same thing in two different forums?

For the updates as well you can do the same except you don't have to remove anything.

So you download these files in /home/user/MyDocs/
gingerbread_update1.tar.bz2
gingerbread_update2.tar.bz2
gingerbread_superuser.tar.bz2
LatinIME.apk
gps.nokia.so

Follow these steps first to uncompress the bz2 files:
# root
# bzip2 -d gingerbread_update1.tar.bz2
# bzip2 -d gingerbread_update2.tar.bz2
# bzip2 -d gingerbread_superuser.tar.bz2

Now mount /and change directory to /and:

# mount /dev/mmcblk1p2 /and
# cd /and
# tar xvf /home/user/MyDocs/gingerbread_update1.tar
# tar xvf /home/user/MyDocs/gingerbread_update2.tar
# tar xvf /home/user/MyDocs/gingerbread_superuser.tar

You will notice the files getting copied after every tar command above that you execute.

The last ones are not tar files so u can just move them to the respective location:

# mv /home/user/MyDocs/LatinIME.apk /and/system/app
# mv /home/user/MyDocs/gps.nokia.so /and/system/lib/hw/

Finally change directory and unmount:

# cd
# umount /and

Thanks xuggs..

The reason I posted here as well is there are many Nitroidians who dont visit the Nitdroid forums.. Hence, to help those people..

Cheers !!

That'd be handy if it worked in gingerbread, I only get a semi-colon :-(

Edit: It's not on the symbols page either unfortunately.

There is a key mapping patch file out there which fixes.. obviously: key mapping.
It is posted in nitdroid: http://forum.nitdroid.com/index.php?topic=991.0


Edit: Wrong Link. But this is still good: http://forum.nitdroid.com/index.php?...;boardseen#new
