SCROLL MODE HELP - OK so I just uploaded a video to youtube showing what I have done and the error i get. I have been trying to install android to my iphones for the last 2 days with no sucess. i used a 16g 3g on 3.1.3 a 16 gig 3g on 3.1.2 and a 8 gig 3.1.2 Still always got the same result. I even tried a different computer. Anybody?

Hi there, It doesn\'t sound like it has installed..I did this twice when you first get asked to put into scrolling mode MAKE sure you keep both fingers pressed until text starts to scroll. If you release fingers before text appears(keep pressing even when you see iopenboot menu!!!) it will not install Hope this helps

When I continue to hold down both both buttons I get an error saying to restart that backup nor failed. also my itunes pops up. any help would be helpful. I will try to make a vid to post on youtube and see if that will help show what I am doing wrong. ny advice before hand would be gratefull

Thank you for the link. It was of great help, mine is 2G so it\'s taking quite a lot of time.

hey guys. i have attempted this twice. i get to the openiboot screen, select android and press the home button. i get a bunch of scrolling text, and at the bottom it always stops at \"Welcome to OpeniBoot\". The text right there is kind of messed up, and it doesn\'t go any further. sad :[. any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Cody if you release your finger quicker you will not always open the console..which is what you are doing. So when entering iopenboot release home finger button sooner and you will not jump the iopenboot options screen..the one were you select the boot option/android etc..I did this for ages before i realized what I was doing wrong :-)

Thanks for the reply Galactus. I see what you are saying about releasing my finger quicker, I have noticed that when choosing iDroid there is a tendency for the highlighted symbol to change quickly from iDroid to Console. However, I have been unsuccessful in just releasing the home button more quickly in order to correct this. No matter how quickly I release, I still get greeted with \"radio: comm board detected\" and the scrolling text. It seems there is a broken pixel beneath the Console button on the OpeniBoot screen... maybe that\'s the problem? Ah. Frustrating.

Hi Cody, I think your best method would be to release both fingers when the screen goes blank and then repress both very quickly again( I did it for about a second and then the iopenboot screen comes. Hope this works for you .

some answers (for 0.6 beta r6 at least): - you can select the booting os every time you start the iphone - it doesn\'t work with spirit. you will get stuck on step 15. - it doesn\'t seem to go in stand by mode - android 1.6 On my 3G I can\'t make the wifi or the network to work, I still need to investigate this.

dose it let you decide to either run android or the iphone OS?
galactus - June 7, 2010 at 7:25pm
yes :-)
