Default Custom Kernel Ally

This kernel is 2.6.29

added items:
ext3 support for apps2sd
ext4 support for apps2sd
netfilter & iptables needed for android wireless-tether
RNDIS needed for android-wired tether

Kernel was built without modifing any code just the kernel configs. LG Kernel Source

This is untested but I had testers confirm on an older version without RNDIS support.

Download

This is a signed flashable zip from recovery.

Android wireless-tether does not currently support ally but this kernel should have all the required items. If someone here is interested if you ask android wireless tether to update code for ally which uses wireless.ko and has firmware loaders at system/etc/wl named nvram.txt, rtecdc.bin, and rtecdc-mfgtest.bin. It should work. Try opening an issue and list those file names and locations @ android-wifi-tether - Project Hosting on Google Code

Thank you for the tether compatible kernel. Please can someone confirm that my issue 559 at the google code for android wifi tether is worded correctly and not missing anything important. I hope that what I provided was enough.

I would assume no over clock because it requires a lot of retooling but this kernel gives so much. Ally needs app2sd in velocity asap.

I have a Motorola droid, but I'm interested in deving for the ally. I've thrown a couple kernels together for the droid, and assuming that all .29 kernels are the same basic thing, all that is needed is a few line changes in the .config file. Granted I just compiled kernels as a way to expand knowledge, I'm sure I could put one together with slight overclock, if I had a template of this one's config file with wifi tether support added. That is, if my assumption is correct.

Completely different arch droid is omap and ally is msm76xx. As far as overclocking I found some stuff (a technet apuclock.c) that supposedly oc's the ally to 806mhz but it resulted in a kernel panic.

Of course. At any rate, I'll play around with some stuff. Above all I'm looking to expand my knowledge base.

Same as any rom/update.zip. I see you are using clockwork. Have you tried my latest as I added quite a few new features in 1.2.1.

In order for apps2sd to work, do I need a separate apps2sd application? Or does this kernel do it natively? Also, does it support ext2?

A little bit new to all this. I've been waiting for an apps2sd rom to come along ...

Its rom dependant. Using my latest recovery and kernel you can partition ext3-4 with recovery and using my kernel use ext4. Otherwise you are limited at ext2. You really need a clas 6 sdcard too.

I attempted to send a report to android-wifi tether team, issue 559, and the team there responded with this answer.
Please get the answers to me on this thread and I will add this response to issue 559 ASAP. I cannot answer these questions.

Hi! Thanks for opening an issue. We would love to add support for the ally but we need more information to do so. Please note - we don't have such a device available for testing. If you or anybody else can provide more detailed information please drop me a email or add it here.

What we need:
How to load the wifi-module? Does this work?
insmod /lib/modules/wireless.ko
How to load the firmware-file and which one needs to be loaded?

download the file and rename it update.zip. put it on the root of your sd card. reboot into recovery and select install sd card update.zip. allow it to install and reboot.

<Noob>
Im a bit confused. So I flashed this. And I have the Velocity Rom 0.1.1 And I used clockwork mod to partition for Apps2SD. Do i need to get an app or do I have to wait for veloctiy to support Apps2SD?

Just to inform you of an update on the issues with the android wifi-tether. A bunch of people have been testing the issues with your kernel and the tether app and have found some interesting insight as to how to figure out the problem.

Please check out the link below to get to the issue 559 page on android-wifi-tether. There is a logcat reading and info related to the init.

Link.

Drellisdee, I am amazed by your kernel and I hope that android-wifi-tether for your kernel will eventually come out.

I am using your overclocked kernel, but I have an SD card that I've already partitioned, but my ext3 partition is going to waste right now in Velocity. What would be the easiest way for me to combine the benefits of your overclocked kernel and your apps2sd kernel with my little Velocity?

Thanks in advance drellisdee!

OC kernel has ext 3 & 4 support too. You just need a apps2sd rom.

I have been trying to get a2sd to work with a number of roms available. I can get it to mount and setup symlinks for apps2sd and swap2sd but I cannot keep the mountpoints persistent. I have tried to add lines to mount the sdcard to /system/sd in init.rc but all I get is bootloops.

Alternativly I have tried using other roms apps2sd setup scripts but I run into the same problems. A2sd will function as long as you dont reboot.

Swap2sd I got to work perfectly with velocity I however quickly realized it is not worth using for a number of reasons.

Does it support swap too?

I currently have a 4 gig card with a 128 meg swap, 512 meg ext3, and the remainder at FAT32.

Any rom recommendations? I know that Velocity gets the most thumbs ups when people ask what the best Ally rom is... but it does seem to have its fair share of limitations. Perhaps .2 will fix many of these limitations, but I have no problem with lather, rinse, repeat (wipe, test, flash) as often as necessary to try to find the right which rom works best for me.

I've never been one to poo-poo anyone else's work. I don't think things are as cut and dry as A > B... more than likely it is just that Joe Blow prefers A to B. Our opinions can, and probably will, differ.

Thanks again for all your hard work. I'm enjoying my OC testing thus far.
