Still works for me too but it does seem to give an error when trying to install stuff from the play store. It says unable to write to internal memory or SD when I try to install tapatalk for instance. I know I had it running before....

Edit: Need to mention that examining the storage shows more than enough free space on both internal and SD storage

Have you tried unmounting the SD before installing?

Yes, no difference. Weird problem. I might have to set Android up all over again as this install was done on my previous pandora.

With SuperZaxxon 1.71 it wont start anymore.  :unsure:
On my 1Ghz unit and running SZ 1.71 installed via the OS upgrade tool it seems to still work for me.
With 1.62 it works fine, after using the upgrade tool it didnt start anymore. Got a 1Ghz unit too. Reboot several times, but no luck.

Any idea to fix this?
Try to reload the pnd, but still no luck.

Is there a logfile I could post here for help?

maybe the PND out file may be able to help.

It would be in the /tmp folder after launching the gingerbread pnd.. it will be a .out file and be named similar to the PND name.

Looks like it's getting a segfault error when attempting to mount the android image file.. Not entirely sure what that means for a fix at the moment.. that rootfs.ext2 file should reside somewhere in the appdata directory maybe it got corrupted?

After weeks of trying and kicking my pandora around ... it works again. All I need to do is a system-os upgrade.  :blink:  Android boot up again, but it disable wifi-connection while booting. All I see while booting is something about  "not on whitelist" or something... Its to fast to read before the bootscreen appears.

 

So I got no playstore and no wifi.

Any solution??

Yes,please deactivate Wifi before starting Android

Edit: Please try the OS Upgrade again before starting,maybe some Things have changed,work realy fine here.

Thanks for the tip. Wifi works!!

But how could I get the google-apps working? I copy the system-dir from the gapps-archive to /appdata/android_gingerbread/ , but android starts without installing these apps.

Had near Problem because i used the wrong kompressing/decompressing Software.

Example:

When you use Squeeze on the Pandora then will Squeeze ever add a Folder too much on the Pandora with the Name of the extracted Archive.

( gapps-gb-20110828-signed.zip Files are after extracting often in a Folder named gapps-gb-20110828-signed and that should not be here) ^_^

Just copy then the Files/Directorys from inside this Folder to your Appdata.

The Howto from the first Post here is working fine for me here:

I've got the most up to date packages for my  Rebirth and running the gingerbread_r6.pnd fails. If I try to run it manually, it will mount the PND, try running pandora/run_gingerbread.sh, after it asks for my password, a box flickers a sec, then vanishes and it fails.

How is your SD card formatted?
It's still FAT32. It worked fine before, but I hadn't run it in a while, and when I tried to run it today, it wouldn't work. So i deleted the appdata folder for it and redownloaded the PND and still no joy. I'm not sure if something is changed since the last time I updated, I'm on the most current update of Super Zaxxon. Unless the SGX driver is causing the problem, it just occurred to me to try that.

Nope, reverting the SGX driver back to default made no difference so, I dunno what has changed.

Interesting. It was working for me on the most recent firmware. Perhaps it is SD corruption? Have you tried reformatting and then reinstalling?
