The latest version of iDroid has been released which allows the installation of Android on iDevices, including the iPhone 2G, iPhone 3G & iPod Touch 1G. No other devices are supported at this time. This is the iDroid Project’s forth minor release of Android Froyo for iDevices, built completely from community source code repo’s.
Currently the Bootlace update has been submitted to Bigboss, but is not yet live, thus it is not possible to install 188.8.131.52 for Bootlace users until it is.
NOTE: This is a bugfix release for the 1.0.4 version that was retracted
On behalf of the iDroid dev team, I am proud to announce the immediate availability of iDroid MoJo v184.108.40.206
This release is for iPhone 2G, iPhone 3G & iPod Touch 1G and is available via bootlace or as a binary package.
IF YOUR DEVICE IS NOT STATED ABOVE THEN IT IS NOT SUPPORTED – WE DO NOT HAVE ETA’S ON OTHER PORTS AT THE MOMENT.
BEFORE YOU DOWNLOAD, PLEASE SEE THE KNOWN ISSUES SECTION – THIS WILL SAVE US SOME SUPPORT TIME BY EXPLAINING SOME KEY ISSUES
I have had some people ask whether this works with iOS 4.2.1, the answer at the moment is no for manual installers (Bootlace now has a firmware bundle for 4.2.1). – we need to fix loadibec for the USB protocol change
There have been a large amount of changes across all of our repositories, some of the more key ones are summarised here, but I would suggest checking our Github organisation for a full changes list.
RAMDISK – Stop dhcpd when wpa_supplicant is stopped
Built against JDK6 instead of 5
Upgraded ADWLauncher to 1.2.0
Added OI File Manager 1.1.3
Problematic APN’s disabled (Temporarily disabled until such a time that we have data communications – solves no calls/texts issues)
Fixed terminal, now allows numbers/special chars
LCD Density set to 140
Build properties moved into specific device trees in vendor/apple
SIM PIN support – WITH CAVEAT – SEE KNOWN ISSUES BELOW
o2 UK Data APN details set correctly for iPhone
overlay added to vendor/apple – sensible default settings – this will also allow for tethering (once data is implemented) and a few other things
Some performance tweaks
new userdata image – REVERTED – THIS WAS PART OF THE ISSUE WITH 1.0.4
IPT1G accelerometer inversion issue PROPERLY fixed
Implemented mute in the wm8991 driver (iPhone 3G)
openiBoot – Version 0.2
Loadibec completely re-written
oibc completely re-written (Now Multi-threaded)
Added different word size support for SPI driver
Known-position task switching
Heavily refactored USB protocol
Fixed a bug with large word transfers over SPI
Fixed minor bug in mmu.c
Fixed some minor bugs in the framebuffer
Version string now stored in /openiboot
Updated default/temp os config to new standard
Added boot_ios command
Fixed some incorrect registers
added multitouch firmware uninstall command (This does not happen automatically on uninstall – this is by design)
FOR A MORE DETAILED SUMMARY OF THE CHANGES TO OPENIBOOT PLEASE SEE http://idroid.nickpa…openiBoot/Tools
NOTE – We used to bundle openiboot tools in with our releases up until now, due to the size of the tools now that we have windows versions and OSX versions we have decided to remove them from the release packages – you can get them (Installers are available too) athttp://idroid.nickpa…openiBoot/Tools
Loopback devices are presently not cleanly unmounted (as has been the case since day 1), as a result an integrity check is forced at startup slowing down boot time a little.
Power Management – A large amount of progress has been made on power management in recent releases, but as yet not all device drivers have suspend/resume in them & we are still lacking CPU idle/clock gating so there is still a lot of work to be done before we achieve optimum battery life.
ISSUES SPECIFIC TO THIS RELEASE:
SIM Pin Support
Sim pin support has been implemented in this release for all basebands, there is however at this point one caveat for those of you who have newer basebands and those of you with an iPhone 2G – 3G ultrasn0w compatible baseband versions are not affected by this issue, only applicable to basebands that rely on a wildcard unlock and those that are pre ultrasn0w.
Wildcard unlock/iPhone 2G users will be able to enter their pin successfully and the baseband will unlock at the ril level, however android itself never actually sees this happen, therefore you have to go into Settings and enable airplane mode, then disable it again to get android to see that the baseband is unlocked – this will be fixed in a later release once the baseband communications layer has been rewritten – we figured that some sim pin support was better than none at all for the moment.
