03:38 Ianas CEnnis91: Good evening...
04:08 Ianas Good night...
04:12 [mbm] .
04:18 Ianas left #motoactv
04:45 ds2 did I read correctly - there is a way to trigger recovery with buttons now?
04:50 [mbm] nope
04:51 [mbm] but the misc partition can be used to leave post-it notes for the bootloader
04:52 [mbm] so you can write something via fastboot that forces the next bootup into recovery
04:56 ds2 Ohhhhh
04:56 ds2 not great but at least that is useful
04:56 ds2 OTH, if you got fastboot...
04:57 [mbm] well, it's useful if you want to use recovery as a temporary bootup
04:57 [mbm] fastboot write something into recovery, force it to boot recovery
04:58 [mbm] when you boot normally /system/etc/install-recovery.sh will kick in, and rewrite recovery with stock
04:59 [mbm] which makes it the perfect trick for dumping stock roms
05:00 ds2 why not just a zImage + ramdisk.img?
05:01 ds2 fastboot boot zImage ramdisk.img would do the same
05:03 [mbm] if only fastboot boot actually worked
05:04 ds2 fastboot boot doesn't work on this platform?
05:06 ds2 most other platforms have a working fastboot boot
05:06 [mbm] moto's fastboot is known to be extremely braindead
05:07 ds2 oh.. didn't think they can break that feature
05:07 ds2 even another brain dead mfg didn't break it
05:15 [mbm] not really sure in what way it's broken

12:45 dproldan I've been able to browse the market, download and install a program on the MOTOactv
12:45 dproldan I guess the problem remains when searching...
13:02 dproldan oh,  it works with that application from ianas
13:10 bASSchica joined #motoactv
13:14 cmw joined #motoactv
13:29 dproldan just for the record,  installed CEnnis91's 5.6.0 rooted zip,  installed gapps-gb-20110307-signed.zip ,  installed marketsearch.apk, used Jay's tool for installing HC launcher, modify keys...  and,  (the first time for me)  I have a free MotoACTV
13:31 cmw dproldan: free?
13:33 dproldan free from my laptop :-)  i don't need to use adb anymore to install programs
13:34 dproldan oh,  Gmail is working!
15:48 [mbm] isn't the screen a bit small to be using those?
15:49 Snoothy gmail?
15:50 Snoothy I would have it installed just for the notifications
16:31 dproldan some elements in the UI are too big,  yes.  but they're perfectly usable
17:17 CEnnis91 heh so 5.6.0 fixed the market shit
17:17 CEnnis91 makes our job easy
17:25 CEnnis91 [mbm]: the notif pulldown is almost completely useless with the carrier bar right?
17:38 dproldan yes, it is
17:43 [mbm] CEnnis91: yep, pulldown ability is disabled in the moto launcher/apps
17:43 [mbm] iirc it starts working if you switch launchers
17:44 [mbm] btw, slatedroid wiki used to have a nice tutorial on how to add the market to non-market devices
17:45 CEnnis91 [mbm]: we added the necessary bits in past versions
17:45 CEnnis91 also, thought so, i need to fix that
