Bootloaders for 2.3:
Upgrading to MIUI
After the previous Romkitchen upgrade, a few things didn't work. It's taken this long to bother getting around to trying again.
- No Gallery app
- The SMS app force-closes pretty much immediately, had to install an alternate messaging app
- Firmware: 2.2.1
- Baseband: I9000TDVJH3
- Kernel: 188.8.131.52 hardcore@speedmod-k13d-500hz #22
- Build no.: FROYO.Rom Kitchen XWJSD
- Disable 2-factor google auth
- Nuke shitty Kies software from PC in case I need to use Odin at some point

Something about 3-button recovery: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=821698
- Telstra Internet - telstra.wap
- Telstra MMS - telstra.mms
Well here goes nothing:
- 3-button download
- connect to USB
- drivers installed (again? different USB port this time)
- ran Odin3 v1.7
- confirmed it shows "Added!!"
- Selected PDA file
- Checked "Phone Bootloader Update"
Start ! (crossed fingers)

- The device reboots as advertised by Odin
- Boots to OS as usual, whoo! Now I should never need to do this again.
What's changed? Only the kernel, nothing else (as expected).
- Kernel: 184.108.40.206 hardcore@speedmod-k13e-500hz #36
Now flash it:
- Reboot to CWM
- Backup DATA
- Wipe all DATA
- Wipe Dalvik cache
- Apply from SD card
- Select it, hits Checking BML/MTD
- Reboots, new bootloader splashscreen mentioned Cyanogenmod
- Goes back to CWM, continues flashing
- Completes, reboots to MIUI automatically
- Initial setup wizard, connect to google account
- Running MIUI-109300
Syncing includes all your apps, so it's busily installing all my shit again. I guess that's okay.

Problem with Google Authenticator
Google Authenticator reliably force-closes at startup, exactly as documented here: http://code.google.com/p/google-authenticator/issues/detail?id=140
The issue is that it tries to chmod something, and the chmod command isn't found where it's expected. This sounds like it's only a problem on Cyanogen-based distros (I'm running MIUI).
This comment has a workaround: https://market.android.com/details?id=com.google.android.apps.authenticator&reviewId=15071831872562752248
- Start a terminal
- Get root
Remount /system as read-write (not sure if this is strictly necessary)
mount -o remount,rw /system
cd to /system/bin
Symlink the chmod binary into here
ln -s ../xbin/chmod chmod
- Now Google Authenticator works again, and you're no longer locked out of your account. \o/
