7. Questions and Answers
With the stock Market still being funky, what options do i have?
The system can still side load apps, so any APKs you can grab can be installed with adb. Additionally, because of this,you can install other 3rd party Markets such as Slide and Amazon, which will let you install more apps.
Can i use the HC overclocked kernel?
At this time no. I have tried using the last released HS OC kernel, and something about it causes the system to hang at the boot animation. I want to look into it further though, and see if i can discover the source of the issue.
As of RC1, the kernel shipping in this package, is the same one that is found in the "HC-v4-emmc-2nd-edition" released for the preview SDK.
What is different about this release, compared to the other SDK port
The previous port was based off of the preview SDK, which Google labeled as SDK 10. The actual release of Honeycomb however, was bumped to SDK 11. This port uses that code, which means that it should be compatible with all the new new Honeycomb apps (Google body, etc). Certain things, like the Gmail for tablets, do work, and show what Honeycomb is all about.
How much more can be done on this release?
From here, the big fixes would be:
- Getting the stock Honeycomb Market to work
- Getting audio working
- Getting newer OC kernels workin
- Smothing out the UI experience as much as possible.
How can i help?
All the source that i had available is in the .zip package. Because there is no freely available source, all the work involves modifying the released binaries and framework .jars. There is additional tweaking that can be done to the ramdisk and kernel. If you feel adventurous, all of these are in the update package, and can be tweaked at your leisure. If you think you have something, don't be shy - zip it up and let us test it!
