After using Stephen’s 1.5.1 for few weeks, I have decided to upgrade and combine the best of both world : the latest official radio from a Hong Kong latest rom released on/around 27 Jan and Stephen’s latest Froyo 2.2 build 1.7.0.
As this involve an official Froyo’s rom, I cannot use the present StreakMod or ClockworkMod recovery to flash. This is what I did.
STEP 1 : Install the Official Stock Recovery :
Download the stock recovery image and extract to a directory – and rename it as recovery.img. I coped this to the same directory where I have the previous Dell’s extracted recovery files together with the ADB commands/files installed from Dell
Download link of this recovery : SOURCE
Other download links which was done previously :
Android SDK : http://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html
Windows drivers from here:
Dell Mobile sync software if you need it for syncing ( optional ) :
STEP 2 : Download the HK’ s rom in pkg format : Streak_322_12947_11.pkg from :
Rename the downloaded file as update.pkg and copy it to the root of the external micro SD card.
Put the Dell Streak device in bootloader mode : Remove the battery, then replace it and turn device on with the camera button pressed. Select the ‘fastboot’ text on the top right, wait few seconds then plug the device into your PC. The screen display should change to ‘FASTBOOT MODE’. If it doesn’t, repeat and retry
In Windows, using explorer locate the folder where you have put the recovery image file : double click ‘install-recovery-windows.bat’
You will see a message on the Dell’s a successful flash done
Unplug the Streak from your PC.
Switch on the Streak with the ‘volume up’ and ‘volume down’ buttons pressed. You will see a menu, where the second option is ‘Apply update.pkg from SD card’ Select this option (scroll using volume keys and camera button to select).
When this process completes and rebooted , the upgrade to official Recovery is done
The Dell Streak after this will become unrooted. Since it is on official Froyo’s rom, z4root and Universal Androot’s one click rooting solutions will not work. Only SuperOneClick can be used – download instructions and source : http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=803682
As I planned to use Stephen’s 1.7.0 build – I need not do this rooting process as this is already a builtin process when flashing Stephen’s 1.7.0
To flash Stephen’s rom : I need to
TIP : If the phone screen is stuck at ” Wait for fastboot…” : then try this – On computer, Go to Device Manager. You should see an errored item called Android 1.0. Right click Android 1.0, select Update Driver Software, select Browse my computer, select Let me pick, select All Hardware, scroll down to Android Phone , select Android Bootloader and click OK.
2. Download Stephen’s 1.7.0 zip file and copy it to the root of the microSD card. Prepare the install.txt file according to your needs. Instructions and download links : http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=909263
3. Put Dell Streak on recovery mode : Hold down both Vol UP and Vol DOWN buttons while simultaneously press Power button. You will see the Recovery Menu. Scroll down and select Update zip file . Locate the downloaded 1.7.0 zip file – press Camera button to select. The flash process taks about 8 minutes to complete
