I'll see what I can do. I'll try to build a kernel tonight for starters ;-)

When I finish the Akita image I could make an image for the c750. But only if you promise me to test it, because I don't have a c750 anymore.

Dear cortez, sorry for late feedback.

I tried the image on my sl-c3200, I let the updater do its work and when I came back I was booted into Poky.
The problem was, there was no android directory in the home folder....

Maybe something went wrong during the updater process and I wasn't there to see the error output? (out of space maybe?)

I hope to have time to try again soon.

Best regards,

cortez

I bet you checked in /home/root. Check in /home, the android directory can be found there.

c7x0 kernel can be found here. You can try to get this working by flashing the kernel and extracting the /home/android directory from the spitz image (android-root.tar.gz) on an ext3 formatted SD or CF. For the time being this has to be done manually. Kaze is already experimenting with it, and I think he uses the angstrom-minimal root file system.

@Kaze: any success on getting Android working on your c750? Did it work on ext2?

hello again cortez,
as you said i installed a minimal angstrom along with your kernel and modules,
i can succesfully run your akita root image on ext2
(but quite slowly compared to ext3, so now that i can insmod ext3 i m using an ext3 formatted sd)
unfortunately i get a segmentation fault error when runnin the latest 0.9 root for spitz
anyway the akita image works well although a bit slowly

Hmm, the segmentation fault could indicate I haven't incorporated the Android patches at all. If so, the problem is that I have to disable more kernel options to make the kernel fit the c7x0. I'll have to check whether it is possible to move over (even) more features into kernel modules.

i don't know if its any indication, but using the same kernel/modules I can run the older akita root you made, and the touchscreen is working so at least the screen patch appears to be in

I'm currently running debian. can I, in theory, just install the android rootfs, chroot and run it that way?
