    I am using an at&t htc aria. But I am trying to help with issues you are having with the ally port to cm6. I downloaded this rom http://androidforums.com/ally-all-things-root/146838-rooted-lite-custom-rom-ally.html so far I have just built a new kernel with a patchset for 2.6.29.6. If someone could try it out for me and report back your findings it would be great. I need to know first if it boots and a logcat of the boot. To do a logcat just run adb logcat >pathtofile and post it to pastebin.com and reply with the link to the pastebin.

    hmmm I didn't change that file. I'll upload the kernel and the wireless driver. You can use this utility to repack the rom from ubuntu [KITCHEN][AUGUST 29 '10] HTC Android Kitchen, v0.88 [Linux / Mac / Windows] - xda-developers

    Repack the rom from here http://androidforums.com/ally-all-things-root/146838-rooted-lite-custom-rom-ally.html

    You need to use the option to extract boot files and replace the kernel in there with the one from my zip and the wireless.ko goes in the current working folder under system/lib/modules

    ally kernel.zip

    I'll give it a shot later tonight. I've already built a few roms with the kitchen, so it shouldn't be to difficult.

    Well I repacked that boot.img with your kernel. It did boot and is running, however I'm having a hard time getting adb logcat to work. When I give it a shot, I get an Access is denied. Any ideas why?

    My syntax:

    adb logcat >c:\AllySDK\tools\logcat
    Access is denied

    Doing this in Win Vistax64 btw.

    Alright, sorry for the taking so long to reply, I re flashed my other rom and had to put this one back on to get the info for you.

    $ su

    Wifi does work, as does the phone and every other feature I tried. I didn't do an extensive test of it, though it seems stable.

    I flashed my phone successfully, but the damn fastboot thing seems to be stuck at 'processing commands'. It did this last time I tried to install a rom from ROM manager (which failed, and I now use that RA_GMN recovery image to flash).

    Still goes into fastboot. I'm not sure what commands need to be run through fastboot, or if this is just an error, or if I repacked the ROM improperly. I try to boot the .img file you send me (after flashing the phone and hitting the fastboot mode screen) and I get a kernel panic (which I understand). I don't get why I'm getting the fastboot screen at all, though.

    I don't physically have the ally I have an htc aria. I'm trying to help you guys out to port cm6 to your phone. Ask flip159 how he did it because he got the other kernel to boot just fine.

    Actually, drellisdee has a working froyo-ready kernel. Works great, talk to him about it.

    Yeah drellisdee has a Kernel that can flash Froyo ROM and do a Froyo backup. It also has app2sd support and kernel tether, I'm testing it now, well not testing anymore its more of using it now, you guys will love it when it hits with ROM's. Enough said make sure to check ROM section daily =).

    I caught it before it was pulled down. Works fine for me, although I'm just using on that ultra light ROM (which ain't all that light at all). Works absolutely fine. So does the recovery image, although I'm not entirely sure how one can know if it'll do froyo flashes until we have a froyo ROM to flash. :p

    Look at backup, it has 4 backup options, the first 2 are Froyo.

    Right, but we don't have a froyo ROM to test it on. But I suppose that if it works for the froyo-ready kernel it'll be able to handle froyo itself just as well.

    The kernels Ive made are .29 not .32 for froyo. Ive been unsuccessful at getting froyo to boot with .29 kernel with an aosp image I built and trying droid ports. It may not be the kernel but more likely the froyo build. Also the 1.2.1 recovery enables backup of android secure for froyo but any of mine can flash a froyo zip.
