iPhone 4 / Re: What can I do to get Idroid on Iphone 4 asap?
« on: December 23, 2010, 10:24:15 AM »
That first item on the list, the "Hex-Rays Decompiler for ARM", would greatly speed up the process as it makes it a lot easier for us to see how things are done by Apple. But as you can see it's very expensive hehe.

thank you :-)
but one question left:
Are there some simulator for x86 or PPC architecture?

Qemu may cross-compile but I didn't try. Performance would be horrible too.
I did read something about bochs but never played with it.

I may actually give that a whirl later tonight but I'm not expecting much from it performance wise.

Edit: Bochs sort of works, but only at iphone resolution. And it's pretty slow, to the point it's not usable.
It has been done, back in the iPhone OS 1.x days even, hehe. Performance was horrible though, and we were emulating Windows 98 :P. I suppose the iPad or iPhone 4 might be powerful enough to emulate Windows 98 or something.

Have you tried restarting the router.

This is a known bug with the wm8991 driver, I tried to fix it, but the registers that wolfson had in the driver are wrong, so I need to do some more work on it :)
And to answer the original question, this is why we had to employ gnomes to work around the issue, and they get claustrophobic every now and again. Don't worry though, we have a good pension plan for them.

Luckily though, the GPU on the 3GS and iPhone 4 (and other current A4 devices of course), will likely be a lot easier to port considering the fact that there are drivers available for very similar devices running Android.

The architecture is a problem like alex said. I guess it could be run in a VM though, but you wouldn't get much in the way of performance.

General discussion / Re: Vote on button configuration

would it be possible to add an app where the user can decide what buttons do what?

Not easily. The whole Input system in Android seems hard-coded and crazy.

I'd like to point out that Home+Hold will always generate the Power keypress. It's senseless to map it twice.
(I'm referring to the button on top as Hold.)

Thus, I'd say:
Power = Power
Volume = Volume
Hold = Back
Home = Menu
Let me just clarify, when ricky26 says hold, he means the sleep button. :)

So I'm looking at the donations.
You guys need 100 bucks for an apple tv?
250 for an ipod?

In my hacking experience, devs generally supply their own equipment. It don't think it's too much to ask for whoever is working on the apple tv to pony up 100 bucks. I one easily recoup that if i sold my video card or something like that dealt with one a little less powerful.
Ditto what nickp666 said, but I would also like to chirp in a little. The fact is that writing drivers for largely undocumented hardware is not an easy task any random person can just pick up. As it is at the moment we have 2-3 really talented guys, and a few others who are in the process of learning this... shall we say art? One of them is at uni, the other hasn't even started uni yet, you think they can afford to just go out and purchase all of the devices just so they can provide you with a port? Like I said, it's not really a matter for just any guy who owns an aTV 2G and has access to notepad to simply sit down and churn out drivers, if it were that easy we'd have support for a lot more hardware than we do at the moment.

Like nickp666 also said nobody is being forced to donate anything. Just know that all (and I mean ALL) of the donated money goes towards helping this project. We're not taking anything for ourselves or paying anyone to work (besides supplying devices for porting). I know this because I happen to be the one who manages the money.

I so wish this board had a like button right now!

Very good post by Zeta, hit the nail on it's head  ;D
It does, you just need 15 posts to access it, but I'll lower that to 9 for you :)

although this isnt really the place to be discussing this, I think yall should stop release different "versions" go back to 1.6 and get everything working for the iphone 2g once you have that working get 1.6 fully working for the 3g/3gs/4/ipod touches THEN release a 2.2.1 version.  I personally hate the way yall are doing the releases because you are not really fixing anything you are just coming up with "hacks" and "workarounds", I mean seriously yall have the source code get it working before releasing "updates" without fixing known issues.  Since I can not program/reverse engineer/code kernels/etc., etc., etc. everything I said is null and void but it is my opinion.
Since you're not a programmer or a reverser you clearly have no clue what goes on behind the scenes, and I can tell you right now that we're not "just coming up with 'hacks' and 'workarounds'". Having the source code for Android means we can compile Android for supported hardware... but the iPhone isn't supported hardware is it? No that's what we're here to correct, and it's an insanely difficult process. Most of the time the developers are working blind, guessing stuff by trial and error etc, this is because they have no references to look at (we need a sensible ARM decompiler/disassembler for that and they are not cheap or easy to get access to).

The fact is that since it takes such a long time to develop drivers, (this is generally due to the lack of people with the knowledge of how to do it... and their lack of time to devote to it) repackaging the drivers with new versions of Android is a comparatively quick process which helps us gain media attention which again serves to help us find new driver guys.

So why don't yall quit bitching and try to help out instead? Spread the word, show it to someone you know who might be able to help us, donate money towards devices for developers and hosting... and don't bitch about the hundreds of hours per week most of us on the team pour into this project, especially not if it's only your uneducated opinion.

Things seems fine so far, But we never heard about fixs for the following

2.Bluetooth [A2dp]
3.Sound [Its not pefectly fixed, still have issues]

when can we expect them to be fixed. Can we fix them or not.

Still trying to fix same old issues in every release. But no progress on above issues.

Your guys even reject them as issues and metion they are known. But we dont have a proper answer on whther you can fix them r not. But enjoy d............

They can be fixed, there's a guy working on camera at the moment actually. The majority of developers working on the project at the moment are concentrating on newer devices like the 3GS and i4.

iPod Touch 2G / Re: Is my ipod supported

Isn't jailbreaking over a jailbreak bad and going to cause problems/do damage?
Nope, since these 2 jailbreaks work so differently all that's going to happen is you're going to end up with a device that's jailbroken from 2 directions at once, at boot it'll do the redsn0w stuff after which the kernel starts and is again jailbroken by comex' hack, this is completely fine.

No rush though, there's no Android support for iPt2G yet anyway, so you might as well wait a little longer with this.

what about beta testing or something
I'm afraid there's nothing to beta test yet, we've barely got a console running on it, no Linux kernel booting yet. The most you can do to speed up development is donate towards the aTV2G ( for one of the developers to give them access to an A4 device.

You don't need the DNS of your ISP, just point to your router (in my case
That does it for me (Linksys WRT54G).
That works because your router is actually supplying your ISP's DNS through it's own DNS server. You could also point it at which is one of Googles DNS servers.

Oh, and another thing, all of the buttons have long press functions as well, e.g. home long press on Android would bring up an app switcher.
