Dynavin ANDROID - Hacking & Development
YOU take full responsibility if you try anything in this thread and ruin your dynavin, so do this at your own risk.
Official Dynavin Solutions thread (Jeff):
Official Dynavin Android site (get the latest (unrooted) firmware):
Some Usefull info:
Installing a ROM
Either use the SD card that came with the Dynavin, or downloaded EaseUS, and format a 2 GB card as FAT (FAT16) with 64kb allocation.
- Unzip the ROM file and copy all the files to the root of the 2 GB SD card that came with the Dynavin
- Boot up the Dynavin with the SD card
- Takes about 5 to 10 minutes, and will notify you when it's done
- Take out the SD card
- If you're reusing the same SD card, remove all the ROM files from the root before reinserting it
Hacked and/or Rooted ROMS:
Release 20111209: http://www.multiupload.com/DVNMVH35YM
Manually rooting Android 2.2 using z4root:
You can grab the file from XDA at:
Prepare your system for rooting:
Go in to settings and enable USB debugging, and allow non market apps.
- Copy the z4root.apk file to your SD card
- Using a file manager, install the z4root app
- Run the z4root app after install
- Chose "root permanent"
- System will reboot (in about 2 or 3 minutes) and you will be rooted (superuser and busybox installed)
- Now grab busybox installer from the market and install the latest version of busybox
Tweaks & Tips
Better/Faster Clock Sync
These apps will make your clock sync faster, and having the clock sync faster will solve a lot of issues the Droidavyn has.
I was able to get the correct time on the Droidavyn down to about 15-30 seconds (stock it took at least 2 to 3 minutes).
- TimeZoneFixer - the dynavin has the 2009h version of the database, this will copy over the 2011h version (https://market.android.com/details?i...m9uZWZpeGVyIl0.)
- ClockSync - setup to sync every 15 minutes; enable local database, and set it to sync on boot (https://market.android.com/details?i...Nsb2NrU3luYyJd)
GPS Configuration file (may help get a faster GPS fix)
- Copy the gps.conf file onto your sd card.
- Make sure you go in to settings and enable USB debugging, and allow non market apps.
- Make sure your date and time are correct (manually), then check the auto update setting.
- Download root explorer and copy over the gps.conf file to your /system/etc folder (https://market.android.com/details?i...RleHBsb3JlciJd)
- Get GPS Status and Toolbox (https://market.android.com/details?i...HNzdGF0dXMyIl0.)
Startup GPS Status and toolbox, reset the AGPS data and download again. Change the settings to download as frequently as possible.
