Hi everyone!

many ppl (and me of course) seem to need native cifs support so we can mount cifs shares in to the local filesystem.

Many of those ppl are total noobs or noobs with reasonable tech/computer/it/software/os knowledge (like me), so we are unable to make/compile our own cifs modules and must burden forums like this with our humble requests.

Would someone be prepared to write a definitive, once-and-for all, idiot-proof how-to-guide on making your own kernel modules for native cifs support?

I think it would be safe to assume:
1. root access is present and/or can be established with instructions in another thread.
2. no previous android development knowledge and experience exists. I.e.: what tools do I need? Where do I get them? How do I install/configure them?
3. Android dev jargon is unfamiliar
4. Tech-savvyness can be expected, I.e. how to install ubuntu in a VM should be known, as well as using text editors, copying files, using terminal emulators, installing drivers, etc.
5. usage of cifs-manager or mount-manager is known

any volunteers will receive kudos and/or monetary donations from me personally and possibly from the greater android community as well.

Please?
