Sorry for the delay, but I had some trouble uploading the files to my site.
The image files and installation instructions can be obtained from my website
Have fun!

Thank you!! Testing now!

**EDIT: I'd like a bit of help. I didn't want to format my whole microdrive so I just used gnu-tar to untar the image to the first partition of my microdrive (ext3). I then flashed the provided kernel renaming it zImage and with the standard updater.sh from Sharp. So far, everything is good, android boots!

BUT, when running /start, I get stuck at the red thingy moving
Is there something to do, or is my way of installing wrong in the first place? Is there something to do with alboot at the beginning?

Press Fn+Left cursor to see if there are any errors shown on the console, or else change the last line in /home/root/android-root/start from /init to

Code: [Select]
strace -ff -F -tt -s 200 -o /data/logs/log-init /initThen run /start, be patient, press Fn+Left to see the console, then press Ctrl+Alt, and while keeping these pressed press Menu (release), Home (release), Menu(release)... until you see a line with all sorts off options. This is while keeping Ctrl+Alt pressed all the time. When you see this line, keep Ctrl+Alt pressed and then press I to exit Android gracefully. Now look at the logfiles in /home/root/android-root/data/logs to see what the problem is.

Yea, it scrolls errors faster than I can read.   It does install nicely though.  
What's this button do??

C3100

I'll re-check the complete installation to see what's going on, and come back to you asap with the results.

I see that Google released a new version of the SDK yesterday, which resolves the issue of the incorrect handling of BMP images (wasn't even aware of that being an issue). I'll try to incorporate that as well.

I have an updated image ready, but I'm currently unable to upload it. It will have to wait until tonight I'm afraid.
I have yet to find out what the problem was with the previous image. Really strange

New image is uploaded here (android-root.tar.gz). Please give it another try. Strange thing for me was after startup the screen stays black. When pressing any key the boot process continues. I don't know why this is. When time permits I'll try to fix this.

just installed on my c3000 ! it works !!!

-i had the black screen bug, solved by pressing the return key
-new interface, which seems much much faster than first version !!!
-no touchscreen working (perhaps it needs some conf file tweaking)
-screen is rotated (is androidzaurus' rotage apk working? i'm trying !)

so far i'm very impressed by the speed, once it boots
