Android 2.3.4 Release For ST Ericsson Snowball Development Board

September 12th, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

Igloo Community – the team developing for ST Ericsson Snowball Nova A9500 development board – has released the first version of Android 2.3.4 for the board. It can be downloaded at http://igloocommunity.org/download/android/images/20110910/.

Android Snowman made of snowballs...Here are the main features for this release:

  • Based on Android 2.3.4
  • HDMI/DVI-D display support
  • Graphics acceleration with the Mali 400 GPU
  • Bluetooth support
  • Multimedia acceleration
  • Ethernet connectivity
  • microSD card support
  • Sensors support
  • ADB over ethernet (by default) and over USB OTG port

and the Known issues:

  • WLAN connectivity is disabled in the UI due to startup problems with the interface.
  • Audio recording does not work
  • Consecutive audio playback might not work
  • Potrait mode does not work (rotating the device corrupts screen until rotated back)
  • Might be a temporary problem, but the browser crashes on the default google page when loading finishes. Other pages seem to work fine, so interrupting loading or going through the search acts as a work-around.
  • The phone app crashes (no modem support)

GPS support is planned for inclusion in future release.

The flashing instructions are available at http://www.igloocommunity.org/support/Flashing_howto
