    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    This is not the official release, just a check out from the master branch which is under continous development. Some important things before you jump in - there are no Google apps like Market, Gmail, YouTube etc., camera doesn't work correctly and the system is still few yards away from being ready for everyday use.


    Requirements:

    1. Dev bootloader, if you still don't have it(why?), read here.

    2. fastboot, if you changed the boot pic, this will be setup already, else read here, also setup ADB as mentioned in the link.

    3. Cupcake images (thanks to Disconnect).

    4. JFv1.41, make sure you are running this latest release.


    Steps:


    1. Turn off the phone and go into recovery mode (HOME+POWER) and press ALT+B, this will start the backup process. Necessary because you would want to go back to your normal life after you have had enough of cupcake.





    The backup will be stored on the sd card in 'nandroid' folder, so make sure the card is inserted and not full.


    2. Turn off the phone, remove the sd card, go into bootloader mode (CAMERA+POWER) and connect to PC, you should see the bugdroid skateboarding, if not, you do not have dev bootloader(sigh!)

    Press Back once, the screen should show FASTBOOT.


    3. Start command-prompt/terminal on your desktop, cd to the unzipped cupcake images folder 'master-nonopt-..' and enter the following commands,


    Code:
    fastboot erase bootCode:
    fastboot erase recoveryCode:
    fastboot boot kernel ramdisk.img


    The phone will reboot after few secs to test the new image, if everything goes fine you should see the Home screen. Keypresses, touches will not work, so take out the battery to turn off the phone.

    Go into bootloader mode, press Back so that FASTBOOT comes up and enter...


    Code:
    fastboot flash:raw boot kernel ramdisk.img


    Kernel and boot image are done, what remains is system image(/system) and userdata image(/data), so..


    Code:
    fastboot flash system system.img




    Code:
    fastboot flash userdata userdata.img


    And finally reboot the phone,


    Code:
    fastboot rebootThats it. The phone will take some time while booting, patience!


    ---------------------------------------------------------------------

    Going Back To Your Backup

    Time to head back home to Gmail, YouTube and syncing.


    Steps:

    1. Copy 'nandroid' folder from sd card to desktop, you can do this the usual way by selecting 'Mount' from the USB notification in the status bar or use a card reader.

    2. Turn off the phone, remove the sd card from phone and go into bootloader mode. Connect phone to PC, press Back button so that FASTBOOT shows up.

    3. Start command-prompt/terminal on your desktop, cd to the nandroid folder and enter following commands,


    Code:
    fastboot erase bootCode:
    fastboot erase recoveryCode:
    fastboot flash system system.imgCode:
    fastboot flash boot boot.imgCode:
    fastboot flash userdata data.imgCode:
    fastboot flash recovery recovery.imgAnd finally reboot,


    Code:
    fastboot rebootThat does it. Phone will take some time to boot.

    It's not the full version of Cupcake. It's nice, the GUI is getting there, but it lacks any Google products (Gtalk, Gmail, Google Maps)...

    It won't be going anywhere near my G1 so long as the google apps aren't in it. I love my Latitude!
