Nortel 1535 IP phone with Asterisk and O2 broadband

I recently ordered a Nortel 1535 SIP phone as recommended by Ward Mundy here – http://nerdvittles.com/?p=703

At £35 (price seems to vary up and down) from e-bay they are definitely a bargin. There’s a good thread on the PBX-in-a-Flash forum about setting it up here – http://pbxinaflash.com/forum/showthread.php?t=8273

They come with the default language set to Turkish so that needs changing to English.

Voice dialling on O2 HTC Desire

As an update to this post – http://sysadminman.net/blog/2010/updating-o2-htc-desire-to-android-2-2-froyo-1340

It looks like the Froyo ROM I initially installed did not include voice dialling. I have now installed LeeDrOiD which does include voice dialling over bluetooth that works with my Plantronics 975. I install LeeDrOiD v1.9 which can be found here – http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=724123

You need to ensure your wireless drivers are up to date before installing the LeeDrOiD ROM. Check out the link at the top of this post on how to do that.

As I had already ‘rooted’ my Destire installing the new ROM was a simple case of downloading via WiFI on my Desire, rebooting in to recovery mode and then selecting the ZIP file to flash. I did not wipe this time as I already had Froyo on there, however wiping is recoomended.

Initial thoughts are that voice dialling doesn’t seem as acurate as on the iPhone IOS4, but it’s early days yet. There are also a lot of other tools/utils included with the LeeDrOiD ROM.

Updating O2 HTC Desire to Android 2.2 / Froyo

Yesterday I ‘rooted’ and installed a new ROM on my O2 HTC Desire and I thought I’d post a few links for anyone looking to do the same.

The main reason I rooted my phone was to have the ability to use SIM cards from other providers when travelling. The other reason was to get voice dialling working through my bluetooth headset. Sadly this still isn’t working yet with my Plantronics 975 and needs some more research!

Firstly, if you are looking to root/jailbreak and put on a custom ROM on your Desire then don’t do an ‘Over The Air’ upgrade to Android 2.2. At present it’s not possible to root Android 2.2, although this will no doubt change.
