Hi,

as you may know, current 3.10.y and previous 3.x kexecboot kernels fail to boot on C1000 / Akita.

There is a workaround to boot the latest 4.12-rc1 kernel on Akita by using a 2.6.26 based kexecboot kernel that supports kexecboot 0.6.

If you are an C1000/Akita owner and would like to try ArchLinux ARM on your Zaurus, please follow the below steps:

- Prepare a SD card with the latest C3x00 rootfs (yes, it will work on C1000 once you change your kexecboot kernel)
- For more information see : https://www.oesf.org/forum/index.php?showtopic=34421
- Install Guide : https://github.com/greguu/ZALARM-install (Note: This guide needs updating, please share your experience and ask in this thread for help if needed)
- Make sure you format your SD card with ext3!

- Flash the 2.6.26 based "frankenstein" kexecboot kernel. (Experimental release)
- See the linux-2.6.26-c1000-frankenstein.tar.gz attached.
- This kernel does allow booting to ext2/3 only. There is NO support for ext4 or F2FS. If you like to use a ext4 or F2FS for root, you need to create a seperate ext3 /boot parition
- This kernel features kexecboot 0.6 and does recognize the recent boot.cfg format.

- Enter the SD card and boot into Arch Linux ARM.
- Note: There may be unforeseen issues with C1000 / Akita. This is an experimental test release.
- Please advise of any issues in this thread. We need some Akita testers !


Hopefully we can get an unified kexecboot kernel for all Cxx00 series Zaurus soon. In the meantime this is the only workaround for C1000 users.

Cheers!
