Just calling out to anyone that is either working on this (like me) or already has it running.....


If you have a 5600 and would try and test, reply.

If you have a 5600 and have it working already, please reply smile.gif


I'm just working out all the OE/Angstrom/Bitbake stuff and trying to apply the patches that are floating around to build a kernel for Poodle that will launch the 'image' that androidzaurus posted here http://androidzaurus.seesaa.net/article/80102284.html

So far that hasn't worked on the pre-built kernels from Angstrom, and I haven't be able to build myself a kernel.

OK, so I made some advances.

I've compiled a kernel for poodle, using the patches at AndroidZaurus. Need to test autobuild kernel to see if that matters or not.

I get the Cylon, but it either: continues for ever, or stops after about 5 min. I need to restart the host.

To get the Cylon I had to take the android-root image from OmegaMoon and use my kernel, with hints from AndroidZaurus. His root image will not do anything but give me the blank screen.

I'm playing with perms and options to get past this, if anyone has done this please let me know.

Did you use an ext3 partition to run Android from?

No, I didn't. Saw your notes regarding that and tried, however, my 5600 didn't recognize the ext3 partition when I made one on my SD card. Does it perhaps have to be on CF? I guess I'll try that.

1. I noted that your /dev is empty, should it be populated from my devices /dev?

2. this whole binder - can that just be insmodded in my 5600's /dev or does it need to be copied over to android-root/dev before i chroot?

3. custom kernel- are you using a kernel built with the benno diffs?


thanks,

andy

It doesn't matter whether you use SD or CF, both work as long as you use ext3

1. /dev is populated when running /init
2. For the M5-RC1? release I didn't bother to build the binder code as a kernel module. Androidzaurus tried to do that, but said it didn't seem to work, so I didn't bother to try.
3. No, I took the 2.6.23 vanilla kernel, the android 2.6.23 kernel sources and created new diffs.

What version did you use, the M5-RC1? or the older M3-RC37 ?

I used M5-rc14 from here: http://www.omegamoon.com/blog/index.php?en...ry080303-221250

Would you be willing to post your diffs so I can build a kernel for poodle? The benno diffs are confusing and think causing me issues.

I'll post them after sorting them out and cleaning them up a bit.
