Android Joggler

Post by to8y » Mon Dec 03, 2018 6:42 pm

Hello, I'm really new to hacking and to my Joggler and I have found out that I can put android on it, can someone help me in installing it, I need the help in a way for me to understand. I'm also very happy to install linux too, but I would prefer to have android
Also what is the most up to date version of android joggler too.

Many thanks

Android 4.04 is the latest working version but no video drivers viewtopic.php?f=2&t=1598
Download the image from http://www.mediafire.com/download/qcgve ... l2.img.tgz then unzip it & flash to a USB stick with Win32diskimager. The first thing to do once this build is running is install Nova Launcher and ditch Trebuchet which is full of graphical glitches. Then use Titanium Backup to remove Trebuchet. And once it's set up to your liking make sure you make a backup image with win32diskimager and do this every couple of months to be safe.

no video drivers
What does that limit me from doing and can I use an sd card and use an adaptor?

It just means there's no Youtube & iPlayer etc. Yes you can try an SD card & adapter but you might need to try a few devices as the Joggler is quite fussy about what it will boot from.

That was quick! You might also want to consider installing a fake GPS app as some apps insist on location services before they will work. Also a rotation manager to stop some apps opening in portrait mode.

I screwed up a memory stick by trying to install android on it, is there a way I can get it back to normal?

Flash this image to your USB stick with Win32diskimager to nuke it http://www.mediafire.com/file/umsf2u22x ... r.img/file then reformat it
