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.

    Is this overclocked at all?

    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.

    Also recomend using the latest v1.2.1 recovery link is on vanisme's guide at bottom.

    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.

    Nevermind. Stupid question. Haha. Got it. Thanks.

    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.

    No. But I plan to switch to it tonight. I've heard nothing but good things.

    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 ...
  19. getitnowmarketing

    getitnowmarketing Well-Known Member Developer

    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.

    firmware_path=/system/etc/wl/rtecdc.bin

    nvram_path=/system/etc/wl/nvram.txt
