I can only suggest until I can buy my own for disection and hook up a some diagnostic equipment like a protocol analyzer.

Has anyone tried a radio app to run the radio android style. Sprint has one that's great. I know there are others in the market.

Have you successfully done anything to the boot process by pushing buttons? I have a Bus Pirate that I can sniff data lines with, but no time currently to pull the Dynavin out of my dash again.

    Startup GPS Status and toolbox, reset the AGPS data and download again. Change the settings to download as frequently as possible.
Anyone tried this? Can anyone report on whether it works?

Hello

I have an issue with my Dynavin sd card. the card is not loading. I am sure it is correctly formatted and the device hardware is functioning (since the ROOM replacement is working when I update it with the latest Dynavin firmware).
However, after the system is loading I can see no card. I tried more cards, including the one which have the firmware. Nothing.
For more info I tried with those cards:
- one 2Gb card Fat 16 formatted
- one 2Gb card Fat 32 formatted
- one 8Gb card Fat 32 Formated

Partitions are Primary and Active on all of them. Still nothing.

It is also important to say that yesterday was working, I moved the IGo from the original card to the bigger one (8Gb), intalled it, tested it, etc..
Today, nothing. My Igo is saying he need the sd crd. I reloaded the firmware (wipe all the data with this ocasion and I loaded it from sd card which for purpose was working). When system is booting, still nothing.
Any idea?

The softwares on the market like reload the sd card specific softwares are also ineficient . Please help. I am almost sure it is a Android system issue.

CWM with soft buttons and gestures

I'm not an E46 Fanatic...but I just ordered a D99 universal double din and found this forum. It has the most info on the Android unit.

I just saw a post on a new version of clockwork that has soft keys.



This may eventually help to get CWM on the D99 so we can do a nandroid, just need someone to figure out how to get it incorporated.

Nandroid used as a restore point on my nook color and droid has saved countless hours.

Great info guys, thanks! I can't wait to get mine.

I would also recomend adding the "V6 Supercharger" script especially for any D95.

V6 Supercharger script from XDA dev site...

[Added]
I can confirm now that my D95 unit is running very smoothly with considerably lessened lag (and feels faster). And I'm only running "256(?)mb" with "balanced" option.

[Update]
I just switched to aggressive option and it is working fine also.

[NOTE]

First of all, I'm not much of DIY writing person (nor developer), and this is my first try so I hope everyone can understand that...

I referenced screens from the android market so they are not a 100% representation of what you will see when you're installing. But it should give an idea of what to expect. Anyhow, the script manager is very straight forward and easy to follow. So I don't think anyone will have any major issue.

Please back up first. For better results, I would also recommend installing it on a clean version of OS. Then rebuild/reinstall settings/apps on top of it. But I think you should also be able to run scripts on top of whatever you have now.

Read the disclaimer note from original post by the developer.
Official V6 S/C link
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=991276



1. Download a script

Go to the http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...postcount=5021 to download
"V6_SuperCharger_for_Android-update9_RC4.sh.pdf" is the latest version.




2. Install BusyBox (available on Android Market)
https://market.android.com/details?i...i5idXN5Ym94Il0.

Run it to give it a super user access

it may ask you to install new version if running for first time. If so, just click yes.




3. Install Script Manager (also available on Android Market)
https://market.android.com/details?i...dG1hbmFnZXIiXQ..

Run it to give it a super user access

Make sure to click "Browse as Root" when running for first time.



4. Load script into Script Manager



Scripting loading screen should look like the one above. You would need to locate the and select the "V6_SuperCharger_for_Android-update9_RC4.sh.pdf" file.

Then you will se the below screen. Make sure to click the "Root" button (shown below in square box); then click the "Run" button (top left box).





5. Follow instructions/user prompts & select what you want. It should look like the below screen.



For D95 unit, there are three available options: 256mb with multitasking (2), 256mb w/ balanced (3), 256mb w/ aggresive (4). - I selected the "aggresive (4)" option.

Once finished running the script, it will ask you to reboot to clear the Delvik cache. Click yes. That's it!
(Rebooting may take much longer time than usual. This is normal for clearing Delvik cache. So don't be alarmed.)

Some of the links in the first post do not work. Maybe the OP could fix

Thanks.

You can do it either way. I downloaded the script via dynavin so I didn't have to take the card out. Then i backed it up to the sd card.

I have my unit rooted, thanks to Z4root. Dynavin is unable to make the 3G modem work. They test it in China and they say it's working well. The unit comes with a chinese APN set up, and even if I change them to my spanish data provider, it still fails (shows a very annoying T-mobile all the time).

Which file should I edit to change the default values to mines? Is there a file in which I can dig to see something strange related to the Mobile Networks setting?

If you update android on the SD card does that clear all setting and basically go back to a factory reset or are all the setting retained?

Hello,

I think this is a great thread that covers app recomendations, tips, and all.

And I'm also thinking that sharing collectively what setups (apps, settings, mods, and more) everyone is running and how they are using in conjuction to the unit could benefit everyone as well.

For me as an example, bt dongle and gv callback suggestions i got from here were very helpful. And perhaps, there may be more that can be learned from each other.

What do you think?

Steep learning curve for me as this is my first android device (D99) however using an app called Tasker, I have managed to get my nav programme to auto load on start. The Tasker script I used is:

Profile: On Bootup
Context: System > Device Boot

Task: Bootup Apps
Action: Tasker > Wait > 10 Seconds (allows time for system resources to load)
Action: App > Load App > iGo

Have also been looking and just found this but I seem to recollect seeing a better one on one of Jeff's screens.
