    I sometimes find it hard to not ask for an ETA for these things, then I remember that unlike me, some people have lives they have to go to, lol.

    I did try out the libs and they broke the screen driver all together. I was thinking of trying to find the kernel source for ics prevail.

    And the boot.img, I'm not saying just flash the kernel, but extract it, and then merge changes, re-pack it, and try to flash. Hroark certainly got the TouchScreen, Camera, and Video Playback working.

    I'm not Micro-managing, but you can unpack the boot.img, and take the bits and pieces you need, merge the changes, and repack it all -.-

    I mean sure the config files are different but the phones are quite similar, even if the kernel is different, there are usable pieces.

    // Not intending to be bossy, just useful I guess //

    No disrespect to anyone who is working hard on this.

    OR
    This is one of the first things we do when porting a rom.
    Its trying to backport the actual TS driver that is the challenge.
    Im thinking it would be easier to add armv6 support to the 3.x kernel. then it would just be a matter of compiling the kernel with our deconfig (well, not _that easy_, but might be a little more stable).

    Just pokin fun a touch m8, no harm done.

    Even then, wouldn't there have to be a fix for HW Acceleration, Wifi, Data, and Video Playback? .___. Lololol, I think building a 3.0 Kernel might be more tedious.

    So, any 3.0 kernel with our screen size would do?

    Oh hey Bo, I know your Kanging this ROM, but I found Hroarks Source Code after digging around a little, I don't think it's up on his Git.

    prevail_cm9_source_alpha1.zip

    It's only 10mb .____.
