  • Ninja Phones - What Next?

    I just returned home a few minutes ago and I'm already trying to extract the custom ROM off the Ninja Phone so that I can tinker with it, as well as replace it with a more functional ROM.

    Any success stories yet, or tips?

    Thanks,
    Alx

      Appreciate the feedback! After I posted I did some digging and went through the same process of unlocking via HTCdev, doing a backup, and flashing a couple of different ROMs.

      Definitely looking forward to anything that the ninjas might post about this going forward. Thanks again!

        How long until technology will allow the phone truck to fit in a suitcase and we can connect every year?

          My intent is to do everything in my power to get mine working (AT&T Voice and Data) by tomorrow evening. It would be nice if people that have been successful doing so could post info. Specifically ROMs that work well, etc.

          Once I have this done I'll post a quick write up here and send it to you guys so you can let people know what works (I'll also include any trial and error shit that didn't work so others don't run into the same problems I did, if I do).
          perl -e 'print pack(c5, (41*2), sqrt(7056), (unpack(c,H)-2), oct(115), 10)'

              I did the method using the HTC Bootloader Unlock via HTCDev to get access (http://www.androidauthority.com/one-...tloader-86146/) and then flash the Clockwork Recovery Mod (http://www.androidauthority.com/one-...ecovery-86145/). From there I backed up the Ninja ROM to microsd.

              FYI, to get ADB to work, I did this (http://ptspts.blogspot.com/2011/10/h...-error-on.html). Again, may not be necessary, but using Ubuntu 12.04, I tried this.

              After that, I tried a few different ROMs from AOKP and Modaco, but neither really worked well. I settled on the myONEv RC3.1, http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1647052.

              After that I used ES File Explorer with Root access to copy the htc_boot.mp3, hTC_bootup_one.zip, and htc_downanimation.zip from /system/customize/resource from the Ninja backup to my current installation. That gave me the Ninja startup/shutdown animation and sounds.

              I had problems getting other SIMs to work in my phone, so I found a site that would generate a SIM unlock config.dat file (http://www.sieempi.eu/blog/2011/09/2...tc-devices-536), which I used with the SIMLOCK menu under the Bootloader (Power+VolDown). My process was power off, replace SIM, SIMLOCK, reboot. This may be unnecessary, but I was able to get the phone to come up on AT&T and T-Mobile SIMs after that.

              All in all, it's been a hoot getting used to Android (BB/Iphone user), and figuring out all the different ways things work. Thanks Ninja Networks!

                  have a spot at DC21... Turn in your Ninja Phone and $99 (for the EFF) and in 3 hours you have a clone of your own phone! Can you do it?

                    Awesome. This is a great starting point.
                    Did you have any problems using HTC Sync in a VM? Or did you do it native?

                      I dunno lol. Either way we are scheming. Hopefully it will bear fruit so as I said patience my friends patience.

                        I used the HTC Drivers on a Win 7 64 VM with no problem. After my initial success I went back to try and break it, and I used the android-sdk under Ubuntu 12.04. Successful on breaking and re-fixing. :)

                        Right now I've gotten SIP calling using Google Voice, SipDroid, and PBXes.org free account over Wifi (U-verse & tethered at&t iphone). I'm trying out the built-in ICS functionality for SIP calling, but the quality options are nonexistent, and I think the SipDroid client is smoother with better echo correction.

                        Wifi/SIP Calling
                        • Use Google Voice (GV) account that also has GMail/GChat enabled (my first GV did not have this, and it was a bitch to figure out), sign into Android using this account.
                        • Sign into GV App using this same account, skip all the voicemail stuff
                        • Download Sipdroid from Play Store
                        • Launch Sipdroid, if you're signed in to GV AND have the Google account setup under 'Settings | Accounts' you will see a button on the bottom to setup a PBXes.org account.
                        • On the screen, create/accept the username it provides, enter THE SAME PASSWORD YOU USE FOR GV/GMAIL/GCHAT, verify your GV user account is listed correctly. *OBVIOUS SECURITY WARNING HERE, YOU'RE TRUSTING PBXES.ORG WITH YOUR GOOGLE CREDS*
                        • Click Create...wait a few until it returns you to the main screen. You should see a light appear in the status bar, first Yellow, then Green (hopefully) to successfully register your phone.
                        • Check out the Sipdroid | Settings menu for things like Handset Gain to reduce echo, ensure that the highest quality codecs are selected, and that the Improve Voice box is checked. I also set the Preferred Call Type to Sipdroid only.

                        Again, I'm having a blast with this awesome phone!

                          Just an FYI. I got my NinjaTel working like a champ. Voice, sms, and data. I'll post my full walkthrough up tomorrow, but it is VERY easy if you already have an AT&T SIM.

                            A lot of us have been working on modifying/customizing these on twitter hashtag #ninjatel

                            We are all going to get our writeups on here today/tonight as well.

                              303's very own Teabag hacked up the myOneVrc3 rom to include the NinjaTel Apps and Logos, etc. You can see the install instructions at https://defcon.hackingyour.net/install.txt and the ROM is at https://defcon.hackingyour.net/myNinjaONEv_RC3.1.zip

                              The install.txt is Teabag's email reformatted only with the link to my site so his doesn't get beaten to death. Enjoy and buy Teabag booze next year.
