For those who have received a tablet, you may have noticed that it shipped with a prerelease version of 1.4 from January. I’ve spoken with Asa and it sounds like we should be testing 2.0 rather than 1.4.
For those unfamiliar, as I understand, 1.4 will be aimed more at stability while 2.0 will be more featureful and a greater change in user experience - implementing all of the Haida project .
Our partner (the tablet manufacturer) will apparently be providing regular builds at some point in the future, but in the mean time we are ok to privately share builds to flash the devices. We have build instructions, but not everyone desires to build the code.
I’m told that because the builds contain some proprietary blobs, licensing prevents us from distributing them publically, like simply posting a link. (The partner can post a link, but we can’t.) So I’m starting this thread to talk about how we might go about private distribution.
I will add my idea below this first post.
It would be nice (I think) to have some solution going in a day or two. Remember, we can try one or more solutions to see what works if we need to.
I will also look into getting some straight-forward instructions for just flashing the device with the build (ROM).
P.S. If you are having issues with flashing, please start a new thread for such a discussion. Don’t want to get off track.
