Not sure if that was for me or not, but yeah I have that script. Thanks...

I guess extracting the kernel from boot.img would be a better test, but I have to assume that the kernel file listed in the CM7 build output directory would be the same. Eh, I guess I'll check it anyway. No way to know for sure is until you check it.

Edit: For some reason I can't get the config from the CM7 boot.img. Can extract the boot.img file fine, but extract-ikconfig isn't seeing boot.img-kernel as a valid kernel image. Am I missing something?

Edit again: I can't figure out how to extract the kernel config from boot.img-kernel. All the guides I read say to replace that file with whatever kernel you want to use. None state how to modify/show the configuration of the existing kernel version. (extracted from boot.img) Sooo...unless someone knows how to do this, I'm going to let it go and assume that the kernel version packed in boot.img is the same as the kernel file listed in the CM7 output dir. (which appears to have the same config as stock)

Yeah thats what ive been trying to figure out is how to open it (as in boot.img-kernel), and figure out what it even is to begin with. Though, that's not important (except its origin and what its made from) because I don't think we can use a modified boot.img that's been re-packed. It just won't accept it. Ive had better luck with non split images from stock than the ones where i split it, change things, and repack which really makes me wonder if the build process compiles its own boot.img file

That being said, I need to identify what the file "kernel" is (found in /device/zte/warp). That's my top priority for now is figuring out what it is and if its the same thing as zImage. In the mean time, I have one last solution (I had 2 but i realized the boot.img files were the same) to try out (which is make it a nandroid format) and if they don't work then its definitely time to target the kernel.

edit: androidxD our boot.img files are the same.

This is the working boot.img i used that my computer recognized: http://www.mediafire.com/?8avhb7ntcgalwh6

md5: 9cecdd984daf85a0dcdd1a73a39e59aa boot.img

WERE GETTING WARMER (and so is my phone ) !! Adb is now enabled!!!!

adb devices
List of devices attached
full_warpACF237 device

logcat dump:

Code:
link_image[1962]:   294 could not load needed library 'libdiag.so' for 'logcat' (load_library[1104]: Library 'libdiag.so' not found)CANNOT LINK EXECUTABLE
\00
So I suspect that I do indeed need to update the files/modules for the phone

edit: it only connects for 2 minutes before disconnecting..

edit: DDDDDERRRRRRRRRPPPPPPPP!!!!!!!!!!!!! I think i found the problem.. there was no bootanimation.zip....... WOW lol no wonder why it wouldn't boot.. I found a cool cm7 boot animation that I put in there and you can edit the bootsound.mp3 if you want

I'm 60% sure that this thing will boot.. if not then im 85% sure I can at least logcat now that I fixed the lib problem

Definitely make sure you test any repacked ramdisk files and boot.img files to make sure they extract correctly. I can see that step causing all kinds of problems if not done right.

Also I just figured out my problem from my previous post. Had an extra "kernel" in my command line where the terminal wrapped and didn't notice it. lol Oh well. Anyway, I checked the kernel files from the CM7 zip, /device/zte/warp, /out/target/product/warp and the config files appear to be identical. (diff reports no differences between any of them)

lol well that was anti-climactic.. when I was installing the cm7 nandroid it said md5 mismatch.. turns out not all the files copied XD

I'll edit this post with results of the REAL cm7 nandroid I made

edit: still can't logcat: here's the output: "Unable to open log device '/dev/log/system': Permission denied"

edit 2: Didn't boot but once I get that error figured out we can start logcatting and figuring out whats going on inside that thing which should help a lot

edit 3: I'll try chmod 777 on that directory to see if that doesn't solve things

edit 4: Nope! I'll try my luck one more time with an edited boot.img then if that doesn't work ill try it with the rom format.

edit 5: back to the kernel when I tried to make it (while im restoring nandroid to pass time) I get this:

Code:
make ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=$CCOMPILER -j`grep 'processor' /proc/cpuinfo | wc -l`
  CHK     include/linux/version.h
  CC      scripts/mod/empty.o
cc1: error: unrecognized command line option ‘-mlittle-endian’
cc1: error: unrecognized command line option ‘-mno-thumb-interwork’
scripts/mod/empty.c:1:0: error: unknown ABI (aapcs-linux) for -mabi= switch
scripts/mod/empty.c:1:0: error: bad value (armv5t) for -march= switch
make[2]: *** [scripts/mod/empty.o] Error 1
make[1]: *** [scripts/mod] Error 2
make: *** [scripts] Error 2
make: INTERNAL: Exiting with 5 jobserver tokens available; should be 4!
Well I must have done SOMETHING right because now it's accepting a modded boot.img.. though still: Unable to open log device '/dev/log/system': Permission denied when adb logcat was tried :L

edit 6: back to making the kernel, I got past my above error and get this now: $ make -j8 ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=~/cm7/system/prebuilt/linux-x86/toolchain/arm- - Pastebin.com Though no zImage (yet)

edit 7: Ok I found out that I can use default boot.img, modified boot.img but I cannot use the boot.img produced in /out/target/product/warp.. that one won't work.

Ok until now I havn't merged ALL the /system contents. I have done that now and I will be testing it tomorrow (no more time for tonight. )

FWIW, I actually tried merging the system folder with the "official" system folder for the Zte v9. No dice. Tried copying the warp files over the top of the v9 files, but didn't try the other way around. In any case, same result. Partial boot and reboot into CWM. I don't know. VERY frustrating...

Why are u using stuff for the zte v9? I don't think they are similar enough for that kind of thing?

What else is there to use that is an official CM build? The majority of the stuff was the same, except the v9 had some extra files and folders that the Warp didn't. One of which was libdiag.so, which you discovered was missing a couple posts back. Besides, I copied the Warp files over the v9 files so anything hardware or config-related would get overwitten with Warp files.

Edit: Note the Zte Skate looks like it has the majority of the same files as the v9. So just by looking at some other "official" configs, it looks like there are core files that exist between phones. (which are not present by default after the Warp build process)

I read that if theres no defconfig in one of the folders then the kernel isnt easily buildable

I think I saw a brief reference to something like that too. I think it was specific to Ubuntu though. Good to know regardless. So do you know what settings need to be added/changed in the kernel? Without knowing that, I'm not sure rebuilding the kernel will do much good. Just for grins, I started to compare config files for the stock kernel and the official v9 one and there were A LOT of differences. Of course some are due to hardware differences, but I don't think all can be attributed to that.

Soz for the lack of activity I had to some stuffs

Ok, well I was told that the fix permissions feature would fix it (I hope) so in theory that should work.. If all goes well I'll post the logcat output here

Ok, so it seems when I merge EVERYTHING from /system to the one produced by cm7 I get stuck. So now I know it was something in there that made it do that I believe..

edit: Due to folder disorganization or whatnot, I have yet to test my new nandroid.. I got boot.img files messed up and now ive reorganized to prevent this from happening again.. lol sorry about that
I should be able to test it still tonight though

Ok. so I finally got it running (no not the cm7) but I mean the nandroid up and booting. The adb is connected and this time it doesn't seem to disconnect after 2 minutes o.O so progress! I'll reboot and fix permissions and hopefully with that I can logcat!

edit 2: Unfortunately I got the same result.. no logcat yet. Still working out with the guys at #cyanogenmod-dev

I need to find out what sets these permissions for /dev/log/system so I won't be denied permission. :/

EDIT:

I found in ueventd.rc this:

# logger should be world writable (for logging) but not readable
/dev/log/* 0662 root log

would that be why im not able to logcat? why shouldnt it be readable if thats what I need it for?

yeah at this point im not sure what it could be.. I need a prebuilt zImage for the warp tho

edit: at the current point.. I'd say the warp is SOL.. we have only 2 ppl: a very busy developer and one who doesnt know jack squat lol (me )

I really don't know much about how linux works.. I think I got into doing this a bit too early... I should read a crash course into it first before continuing on

edit: quietstorm, do you have any suggestions on what to do?

Well, better get 'crackin! I did promise this would be updated daily so I should honor that. Tho im depressed about the whole thing because i went into it blindfolded practically and it just confused me. I think i'll start from step 1 with reading a crash course on how linux works in the first place

edit: first lol i wanna install titanium backup so I dont have to restore EVERYTHING back from the end of the day

First of all thanks to Snake JBrd400 and everyone else for trying to help make this happen!!! A lot of effort has been put into this for a beginner you have done a great job man.

I don't know shit about Linux I can install CWM, Fastboot, and Root but my devices that's it.

The problem I see is like I said before we need someone that has done this more than once, maybe someone, anyone really from the prevail build or from the other ZTE or Transform Ultra phones anyone that has the knowledge of doing it before. I know one ZTE phone is running either cm7 or cm9 over at XDA someone should be able to help if we all pitch in on it I would really like to see cm9 if it would be possible?

I got $10 myself on it guaranteed maybe more depends how funds look at the time. Thats all of us if we want it we need to make it worthwhile for someone that don't even use boost or have Warp phone to get involved and help develop we gotta pay, that's the only way I see us getting anywhere as of now.

Maybe a more formalized chat room instead of a message board, where everyone can can talk in real time, set one up. I see a lot of developers doing this on IRC. Get a group together in a chat room and work together on the same page.

We (the ZTE owners) might have to pay up front but oh well it would be worth it especially for cm9, I got the asus prime with ICS and its sweeeeet man. cm9 would kick ass on this phone 4.5 screen overclocked to 1.5 or more with cm9, would be a galaxy note wannabe. The touchpad guys got cm9 running easier than cm7, at least it seems that way. they have all kinds of cm9 roms getting built now my touchpad runs smooth as butter. It still has some issues that need sorted out but its new. (cm9 for Touchpad)

Hell I would be happy just to be able to overclock this thing for real a kernel.

I do want to say thanks again to everyone here who has put in all the time trying to get everyone (us) on here a Rom. Thanks maybe one day we will see it. I dont know how we don't have any devlopers this is the best Boost phone IMO. I took my Transform Ultra back as soon as I played around with the Warp.

Development is always exciting, but extremely difficult if you are not well versed in android. Anyways patience is key here. I'm sure donations are always welcome but it doesn't help something get done faster. I'm not trying to offend anyone, just trying to point out that money doesn't make things move faster on a new phone. After its developed please do donate for the dev 's hard work!

I know I haven't posted in a while, but found a couple things that may be contributing to the CM7 boot issues. I noticed that the partition sizes specified in boardconfig.mk don't seem to match up with the sizes listed in 'cat /proc/partitions'. I'm not positive I'm converting blocks to disk space correctly, but I believe the partition values listed in boardconfig.mk are smaller than they should be. (do your own research and confirm)

Don't know if anyone's noticed this already, but just thought I'd throw them out there. Even with these settings updated in boardconfig.mk, my phone still wouldn't even try to boot so there's still something else going on, but I think they should be updated regardless.

Edit: Thought I found an issue related to the kernel command line too, but I think it's okay after all.

if your using the old kernel or even a new kernel for the warp you need to install the modules or the phone wont boot, that could also be an issue. The modules are signed to where they will only work on the current kernel installed. Which may be why our new kernels wont boot the phone

The problem is in the device tree. It's incomplete.

Yeah, I've been trying with stock and custom kernels but have been adding any compiled modules to the /system/lib/modules folder. I just found another contributing factor as to why my stuff wouldn't boot though. There's an option for mkbootimg that I didn't see mentioned on any of the guides I've looked at. (mkbootimg repacks the kernel/ramdisk in a new boot.img file) Once I added "--pagesize 4096" to the mkbootimg command line (along with the kernel cmd line and kernel offset) the phone at least tries to boot when using a non-stock kernel. It still hangs at the android screen, but at least the red light goes out so it's getting farther than before. Without the --pagesize option being specified, it defaults to 2048 and apparently that causes the phone to freeze immediately at startup. (red light never goes out)

I'm actually thinking the issue may be with the init scripts/ramdisk at this point. If that is the case, I don't see myself figuring it out. They appear to be different for each device. Additionally after comparing stock init scripts vs cm7 init scripts for the same device there appear to be some changes made, but don't know enough about that stuff to make the same changes for the Warp. I'm mainly referring to the init.<device>.rc file, but there may be issues with the other init scripts as well.

What exactly is missing? You could be right, just trying to better understand the potential issue.

I'm not sure at this point. Either things are missing or they are misplaced

That may be helpful in making extract-files.sh. From what I understand, extract-files.sh is a file that pulls libraries from the phone in real time. However, I'm not sure what is all that goes into it. That is basically what we need at this point.
