Eclair Running on Dell Streak
If you’re an owner of a US Dell Streak, you may have been disappointed to find it running Cupcake whilst other lucky Android device owners are already running Froyo and more recently UK Streak owners who have got their hands on an Eclair beta.
Now, you can get one step closer to the frozen delights and run Eclair too! XDA forum member Greenarcher707 has managed to get the Android 2.1 beta running on his US unlocked Dell Streak and has posted instructions on how he did it.
You’ll need to flash Koush’s custom Recovery, install the Modaco ROM and flash stock Recovery. Download the 2.1 package and install the 2.1 beta from Recovery. The last step of rooting is of course optional.
Current reported bugs include the fact that autorotate does not seem be working and it is no longer possible to drag apps from the drop-down application list to the Home screen.
