Is This a Leaked Froyo Build for the G2? [UPDATE 2: It’s Not Sense!]


At this point, I think we have all the confirmation we need to tie up the HTC Vision to the T-Mobile G2 and  the FCC filing we saw this week for the HTC PC10100.  I was stopped dead in my afternoon RSS trolling today when I  came across what appears to be a test ROM for the somewhat-acknowledged G2.  Now, I will be the first to admit that I am no expert on ROMs, but I do know this could be pretty big stuff. The file, listed as “Test rom for HTC Vision / T-Mobile G2 (Android-Froyo 2.2)” can be downloaded from the link below.I asked another one of the AndroidGuys (Chuck) to see what he could make out of the link and told me, “…the link goes to a page on another site that is COMPLETELY in Chinese. I figured out which are the download links, but none of the mirrors work– they all return an error page of some sort, but it’s also in Chinese.”

UPDATE: Here’s a spreadsheet that comes in the ZIP file that adds a few more details, including bootloader and kernel info.  Wonder if the XDA guys are gonna chew this up tonight?

Anyone feeling froggy enough to give it a shot, too?  Let me know what happens!

Update 2: Zapote21 has hacked his way in, posted a wallpaper from the build and, best of all, confirmed that it is a stock, plain vanilla Android build: no Sense UI! He has also packaged it up in a “more friendly” format for those of you who’d like to poke around and tinker.

      No Description
      1 For SST test in the weekend and upload the build to google to verify google voice issue.

  3. downloaded and extracted, but segmentation fault when trying to unyaffs the system.img file. not real sure what is causing the segmentation fault but hopefully we can pull this thing apart and play for a bit until the phone comes out.

  4. YES!!! Stock Android 2.2 on Tmobile FINALLY!! Can’t wait for this phone to come out. I’ve been sitting here with my thumb up my @$$ with this Cliq. Worst phone purchase of all time!

  5. It also has lots of extra apps, not generally on a stock Android
    PbAndroid.apk (This is a PhotoBucket app)
    Swype.apk (Yes… Swype)

    • It might be for diagnostics.

      If this was a test of how everything works on the G2. It would be best to have some apps that would be best tested to see how it would function on said device.

      You cannot just slap an OS on something and expect that since that is working fine the apps will work just as fine now. It would be assuming too much.

      I am happy to see that this has Stock OS and not any variant. I do not have to wait forever for a company to release a update when the stock update has been out for months. I am looking forward on purchasing this!

  6. Wow, I just got ten times more excited. This is my perfect phone!

    A G1 with a better chip, a better network, and a hopefully decent keyboard. And stock Froyo! What’s not to like!

    All those pre-installed Google apps are interesting. I wonder will Google be giving this phone special blessing?

  7. This is just the engineering test build to make sure Radio works, and check HSPA+ reception/troubleshooting.

    Actual Build is SenseUI based, similar to the MyTouch 3G Slide.

    Hardware-wise, Snapdragon 1Ghz (kernel might be capping the max cpu speed to ~800 for battery life due to hspa+)
    FM Radio & WMA/WMV playback enabled
    Android Ver: Froyo 2.2
    Input Editors: Swype, and HTC IKE (International Keyboard Editor), seems like T-Mobile locked it down to en-us and es-es though.
