    Huawei S7 ROM/Recovery/Build Updates Threads - START HERE

    This thread is intended to be used to provide a single starting point for status updates on the ROM for the S7.

    Last refreshed for February 27

    Huawei Ideos S7 General Information
    Huawei Ideos S7 Variants
    Variant tracking is here: http://www.androidtablets.net/forum/...l-numbers.html
    Screen can be capacitive or resistive
    Radio bands
    Internal microSD or external microSD slot with internal NAND
    single or dual cameras

    Extended Information
    Teardown: Taking the S7 apart
    More software and hardware information: S7 Detailed System Configuration / Hardware info.

    Android Version Details - Official from Huawei
    Current Version - Eclair 2.1. There are multiple builds for locale, but all are 2.1
    Next Official Version - Froyo 2.2. Confirmed by Huawei Norway Feb/Mar timeframe. Details at: http://www.androidtablets.net/forum/...html#post38655

    The recommend firmware to use (for the American variant of the S7 - dual camera, resistive) is http://www.androidtablets.net/forum/...01c61b011.html
    This enables 4 way rotation in applications, in addition to clocking up to 998MHz for some devices.

    Current Development Efforts
    Kernel
    Kernel Build, AOSP - Thread is located here: Kernel Development Discussion Thread
    Stalled for the most part, as Huawei's promised shipping date for Froyo nears.

    Deodex Eclair firmware: Deodexing system and framework

    A buildable kernel based on Huawei's released sources is here, along with a preliminary vendor tree:
    Github Repos

    We currently have no publicized method to rebuild wifi modules, and Huawei has not provided the associated GPL source code yet. There has been requests for Huawei to release the remaining source code beyond the kernel source alone.

    Recovery
    We have some minor issues, but recovery works fine now.

    Download for S7-104:
    http://www.androidtablets.net/forum/...ta-0-11-a.html

    Discuss development here:
    [RECOVERY] Working recovery with UI glitches

    Status - efforts here appear to be temporarily on-hold, and needs attention.

    Apps2SD
    Process defined and explained here: [PRJ] apps2sd discussion
    Alternative link2sd is more flexible and detailed here: http://www.androidtablets.net/forum/...d-link2sd.html

    Status - need to have a volunteer that is willing to create a YouTube Video of the process to share. Contact tardis@androidtablets.net to volunteer

    Kernel Modules
    CIFS and TUN: http://www.androidtablets.net/forum/...el-module.html

    Prelinkmaps need to be modified as referred to in this thread:
    AOSP Note: Prelink Map Differences in Huawei Ideos S7 Builds? Similar to Acer Liquid?

    However, not all files match that of the Acer Liquid. A new prelinkmap needs to be generated for the Huwaei S7 to build libraries.

    Boot.img
    We have full knowledge of boot.img packing.
    This guide can be followed: http://android-dls.com/wiki/index.ph...ck_Boot_Images
    With the exception of including the base address for the Nexus One, and possibly matching kernel cmdline parameters (cat /proc/cmdline).
    Fastboot is entered by holding both volume buttons down from power off, then pressing the power button

    Dont know if you've all noticed, THIS is the m860 kernel source and THIS is the U8500 kernel source Ive been playing with these for a few days and I just found THIS 2.6.32 kernel might help
    Its been said before, I know were so privileged to have 2.2 coming out in march but lets get 2.3 out tomorrow! (gotta dream) Ive got three more days this week to work on this, any takers on some all night chats? #androidtablets seems to be dead ATM (sorry for missing out on your appearances zombie)
    only problem with the U8150 kernel is that the phone didnt have dual cameras... hoping that Hauwei still included the support, shall see
    SikYou thanked this.

    Keep at it ebarcus! I know the IRC is basically dead, it sucks. I am pretty much out of commission for a little while, real life is taking over! I wish you luck and I will jump back in as soon as I can.

    Button combo mega hits?! *MORTAL KOMBAT*

    Thanks man! yeah I just let IRC sit there, suck for me when I miss you guys, who wants to gtalk? Ive found some neat glitches i hope to document soon

    Ive got a "directive" and it comes from my "fastboot" troubles with this device...
    Lets compile a list of button combos with "where" it takes you in the android OS ex:

    HOLD Vol(+) & TAP power (turn on) = (seems to be recovery, tried to load a boot.img and stated was not a recovery image)
    HOLD Vol(+) & CALL button & TAP power = (recovery?)
    HOLD Vol(-) & END button & TAP power = (says to go into recovery cant get mine into this mode, unless i fried recovery, loaded a fresh updata so testing continues here)
    HOLD BACK(arrow) & CALL button & TAP power = Load original updata.app


    some please correct these if i am wrong AND add to this list

    The first S7 Android2.2 firmware for S7-104 hardware(BestBuy hardware) may release in early March 2011. This firmware is for Telstra infact. But it works well in all 104 hardware.

    The new hardware S7 slim will show in MWC 2011 in Barcelona. The ID is really much better than S7.
    With the new hardware, the new UI will release also, it named SURF in lab.
