Android on the Joggler

Photo

Purchased a 4GB USB stick from ASDA for £5

Downloaded the pre-configured blank image which creates the required 3 partitions on the USB stick: http://www.flattermann.net/files/joggler/android-joggler-empty-partitions-4gb.img.tar.bz2

Unpacked the downloaded image files

As I am using Windows, I downloaded win32diskimager to write the blank image to USB stick:  http://wiki.ubuntu.com/Win32DiskImager

Inserted the USB stick and used win32diskimager to write the downloaded image, creating 3 blank partitions on the USB stick for running Android.

Downloaded the Android image “froyo_joggler_v1.1” from here:  http://www.mporting.com/download/

Extracted the Android files and copied the files onto the “ANDROID” partition on the USB drive

The partition now contains these files:

boot.nsh

grub.cfg

grub.efi

README.txt

startup.nsh

android/

initrd.img

install.img

kernel

ramdisk.img

system.img

Inserted the USB drive into the Joggler and booted.  

Booted into Android and loaded very fast.

Followed these instructions to change the language to English UK:  http://www.jogglerwiki.com/wiki/2.2.1_Mijuu_Release

Works very well, but without Android Marketplace and next to no apps/functionality.

Time to find a better Android image with Android Marketplace and the ability to install apps, so we can unleash the power of Android.

Searched for a better Android image on the joggler wiki: http://www.jogglerwiki.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=196

Thanks to James Taylor for his original post which got me up and running in no time.
