android 1.5 porting complete!

Android 1.5 porting is complete and is in beta-phase now.

If you're a beta-tester and didn't receive my email, please let me know.

If there is no major issue, I should be able to release it to the public next week.

Jrioni :)

  2. it wont boot after
    cd menu
    and press (track ball down + Enter) to switch g1 to gp2x mode.

    all it is is blue screen.When I hold down track ball and enter it says error

    ReplyDelete
  3. Here's the same, i don't get any error but I'm stuck at blue screen. I'm using JF Cupcake with unionFS.
    I already checked date on my Debian installation.

    ReplyDelete
  4. how do you check date on debian install?

    ReplyDelete
  5. You simply type "date" (without quotes, of course)

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  9. well I finnaly got through and i exit. Do I have to go through the whole prcess again after reboot?

    ReplyDelete
  10. flip79, did you do this?

    cd /gp2x/menu
    press track ball down + enter

    ReplyDelete
  11. rothany, next time you boot debian, you just need to do this.

    cd /gp2x/menu
    press track ball down + enter

    ReplyDelete
  12. Here's what it says:
    Could not initialize SDL: Unable to open a console terminal. Segmentation fault

    I think here's the problem because if I do a quick trackball+enter TWICE I see the same error (I think that it's giving the same error, but "hided" by GP2X mode?)

    ReplyDelete
  13. ok...have you downloaded/installed the previous package (j1a.tar/j1b.tar)?

    ReplyDelete
  14. i meant for android 1.1 that I released last week...

    ReplyDelete
  15. I received your e-mail tonight, so I recovered the three emails from last week and I downloaded/installed these binaries. Previously I didn't installed them because of 1.5 incompatibility (this is the first install of GP2X I made on my G1).

    ReplyDelete
  16. (from the settings):

    Build number
    dream_devphone-userdebug 1.5 CRB43 148830 test-keys

    ReplyDelete
  17. flip79, try this... (type it in under debian shell)

    % export SDL_VIDEODRIVER=dummy

    ReplyDelete
  18. And... here we go!!!!
    after the export command it has started, thank you very much!!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. ok...i need to fix this...

    This is strange...i forced it to SDL dummy as console no longer supported on 1.5 cupcake but somehow it didn't work for you...

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

  32. Hello JRIONI, I want to tell you that I just tried Super SF2 and it worked very well, congratulations for your excellent work!

    Keep going with next releases because this piece of software (maybe in the future with a little more user-friendly installation) can become a killer application for Android!

    I'll wait for MAME emulation :P

    Just a question: do I have to run max.me everytime, before running GP2X? If not, how I get original CPU speed, to save battery (and the CPU itself :)?

    Thank you.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Yes, if you're using max.me script, you need to do this after phone powers up.

    I used Open Overclocker which seemed to set to max automatically even after phone powers up.

    you can copy max.me to min.me and change number to smaller value (eg. 128000 instead of 528000). and run that..

    but i found battery was doing ok even at max cpu....

    ReplyDelete
  34. flip79, btw, if you can find out how to share files with android + debian, please let me know.

    I'm sure everyone prefers this method...

    ReplyDelete
  35. Sure, if I'll found a way I'll post here on your blog!

    ReplyDelete
  36. If you want to adjust clock manually, please try to install the following app (free) from market.

    Open Overclocker

    For max, set both to 528.
    For normal, set max to 384 and min to 128.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Thank you again!

    I just tried both Open Overclocker and the Overclock widget, the 2nd one seems better for me, it has a lot of option.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  46. To share files between Android and Debian I use mount --bind ie in startdeb script i include:

    busybox mount --bind /sdcard $mnt/mnt/sdcard
    busybox mount --bind /system $mnt/mnt/android/system
    busybox mount --bind /data $mnt/mnt/android/data

    after mounting the debian file system and before the chroot (obviously need to make the folders on the deb system first)

    ReplyDelete
  47. I wanna test!

    Email: Hyptonix@yahoo.com

    -Cheers

    ReplyDelete
  48. Is anyone else getting ERROR: File not found or CRC32 not correct. "CPU1" ? I'm using open overclock and it's set to 528. It also hangs there and I have to restart the phone. This is with the Marvel vs Capcom: Clash of Super Heroes and Marvel Super Heroes.

    ReplyDelete
  49. They are both cached with out any errors.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I just tried and it worked...
    I used these two zip files.

    mvsc.zip
    mvscj.zip

    You only need to generate cache file for mvscj.zip

    ReplyDelete
  51. did you get them from the website in the email?

    ReplyDelete
  52. no, i searched on google...

    type this in google search
    mvscj.zip cps2

    make sure it's cps2 rom files, not other.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Thanks, is there list to see which roms we need for the game and which one to cache?

    ReplyDelete
  54. http://wiki.gp2x.org/wiki/CPS2emu

    I usually avoid any rom.zip file with a special instruction like this...

    "only work if option Decrypt is activated"

    ReplyDelete
  55. Thanks, I appreciate all the help. This is a great program. Are we going to have to reinstall everything once you get NES and SNES support on it?

    ReplyDelete
  56. No...no..no..

    I understand some pain on the first installation.... :)

    For the next patch, it'll be just another tarball to extract.

    That's it.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Hi there,

    I got that running like clockwork after sorting your terminal app thing (It didn't install directly with apps on sd card hack. I had to remove symbolic link, recreate app folder and install it then manually copy the package to the sd card b4 setting up the apps on sd card again).

    I have tested Aliens vs preditor and D&D shadow over mystara and they both worked great.

    The phone has gone a little wierd from time to time after running gp2x and exiting (can't exit jterm properly with exit or trackball down+D) but that could be down to other things as i only upgraded system recently. I will let you know if i come accross any bugs.

    great work - its fantastic and realy fast. I'm intersted to know how you got graphics working not through android! look forward to snes and megadrive/genasys emu!!

    Thanks loads

    Merlin

  58. Oohh! i don't know who origionnutter2000 is but that last comment was from me!! (i just remembered - yes i do know who it is. they used my computer last night!!!)

    ReplyDelete
  59. I would be happy to test.

  60. Can't wait to be able to play some snes and gba on my Dream. How much will this app cost?

    ReplyDelete
  61. I'm having trouble getting my roms to cache correctly. I used wget and looks like I downloaded the roms fine but when I try to cache , I get the same 2 errors rothany was getting. Just wondering if you had a fix for this. Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  62. For those who having a trouble in generating cache files, please make sure you put rom zip files under ./cps2/roms directory.
