Re: Downgrading to previous OTA?

I've been capturing OTA links with Wireshark, which shouldn't require an unlocked bootloader (it sits between the device and the internet on your computer). Can pass along a few images; dming you

Re: HH Blog post and release news

Guess I mis-worded my comment, but whatever... They seem to think the "cycling experience" is secondary. I'm saying that needs to be first. A cyclist understands what should be on the screen and has ideas about how it should be presented. A UI designer wants it to "look pretty" maybe at the expense...

Re: TWRP for Karoo

Hey! Just a note that I updated the `ro.product.device` prop on the image (same link), so you should now be able to flash unmodified ota zips via twrp.

Happy New Year!

Re: How to install third-party apps on your Karoo

FYI, the command to launch an app via adb is

Code: Select all

adb shell monkey -p your.app.package.name 1

Re: TWRP for Karoo

So it looks like the official Android documentation is ambiguous on this, but I just wanted to confirm that Karoo's OTAs (as of 1.4.135.3) are block-based, but they fully replace /system, so it doesn't matter--they won't fail with a modified system.img.

Re: How to see Karoo files from your PC

It sounds like the files in the FitFiles folder are being generated only when the ride is complete, but that doesn't necessarily mean the Ride app isn't committing activity data to non-volatile storage somewhere else on the device. I'm unfamiliar with the Fit format, but it could be that it's easier...

Applying OTAs on a rooted Karoo/with a modified /system

This information is valid for update 1.4.135.3. I can confirm that at the moment at least, Karoo uses full OTAs, and thus, they are safe to apply even if your /system is modified. It's a good idea to verify this each time by opening up the OTA and checking that system.patch.dat is empty (it can be f...

Re: How to see Karoo files from your PC

Oh awesome, thanks Steve!

I had tried to make MTP-mode work by using one of those MTP database rebuilding apps, but no dice so far...

Also note that Developer options can be turned off using the toggle at the top of the menu...

Re: TWRP for Karoo

I haven't, though you could probably port CWM. It might be more difficult, however, since the MT6735 is a fairly modern processor, and not many people still make non-touch recoveries. To be clear, I haven't yet managed to compile any recovery from source yet; that'll likely require more extensive wo...

Re: TWRP for Karoo

Some notes: The reason this image doesn't currently work in /recovery is because Mediatek devices don't enable touch firmware when booted into the /recovery partition. The fix for this would be to use a custom kernel, I believe, although I haven't looked in too much detail yet. You should be able to...

TWRP for Karoo

I'll post more info later, but here's TWRP ported for Karoo. You will need a unlocked bootloader to run this. Please note that touch does not work when this image is flashed to /recovery. You must boot the image using fastboot instead: fastboot boot path/to/twrp.img Edit: At least for versions up to...
