Actually when bo gets this working I got his donation.
Umm why dnt u donate now man we do this for free Donate now but ill gurantee It wnt come out Like a rom or theme It takes a lil while Bro
I need a link
i found that in His monster 5.3 Thread
Thanks at first I thought it was yours lol.
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.
Not needed we just need to backport the touch screen drivers from a 3.x ics kernel.
Thanks for your support!
Oh 3.x Ics kernel lol good luck Bo lol I have been working with my build for the esteem lol
Hey Bo, why not take the Adreno Libs, and the kernel, for the Prevail and tweak it for this CM9?>
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.
This may be of use to all of us ;D
Not sure if this is his CM9, but, I could give you his boot.img from his CM9 Base. If that helps at all.
^ There it is.
We can also tweak CM7 ;D With this :
We can't use the prevail kernel. The phones are alot alike but not that much alike.
That's why I gave you the HROARKs Kernel Factory.
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.
In the words of the great Glenn Quagmire, "heh heh, I like where this is going."
Micro-managing ftl... ><
Its not that easy, and Im sure bor is working on it the best he knows how.
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.
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.
It's only 10mb .____.
you need to backport genlock and kgsl from the 3.0 kernel.
You need to do this for the touchscreen. http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1328515
I doubt any new device that will see a 3.0 kernel will use the touchscreen the admire uses
