Massive update 7-19-2011

Ok, still going to retain the "Better Than Life-Future Echo's", however I need to give everyone a big fat update as to what the holdup is, and details as to what has been going on.

1. Yes, I can install the rom and kernel released in the other thread just like anyone else.

2. Yes, i did a quicky rom and released it, and basically fell on my face.

3. tried 8 ways to sunday to fix my apparent screw up with the members here regarding that disaster i released.

here is what happened.......

I did my rom mods, and attempted a recovery with the Sprint GB, and while "something" worked on my dev tab, I failed to do a test install on my daily driver, I was looking at a "Ghost install" (what I call them), so basically what I released.....would never work (I know this now)

I waisted alot of time, 16 hours a day trying to polish a turd, waisted time is key word.

This is the issue with Gingerbread......
No Recovery for the CDMA Gingerbread
Same Froyo Bootloaders
Half ass root on the system + unstable or even non working root methods for Gingerbread right now
Sprint Rom with now real source for VZW 3G data, no reference that is.

So, this is EXACTLY what is happeneing right now at this moment, and has been going on for the past few days......

I am building a new Gingerbread kernel and recovery from SOURCE for both CDMA tablets.

I have 23 failed kernels sitting in my trash just from this morning.

I am a new dog learning old tricks in Development for Android, so I am thinking outside the box on alot of things, which is good.

I have help, from a very very respected and ingenious dev from this site.

I am RELENTLESS on this Kernel for us/you/CDMA, working insane hours, pissing off the wife because its 3am and im in the bed with a bright ass laptop.

So, this is what I and Team Android Door (yeah, i joined/started a dev team) are doing at this moment......

We are going to release a Gingerbread kernel for both devices with a working CWM, and I myself am hoping this gets done before the weekend, it is priority #1 for me, everything else is on hold.

Thank you for not kicking me while i am/was down, i am trying very hard.

If someone can donate a sprint tab to me, it would help with me developing and testing on that tab, i dont mind making specific roms for each device, i just need that device.

anyone that might have something for me, shoot me an email oldmacnut@gmail.com

Think I forgot to enable ext4 before compiling.
Gonna build an eco2 overclocked tomorrow as soon as I'm done with the gingerbread kernel

NVM, I'm in. As in, in the mix. I'm not on verizon so I don;t know about their devices, but I'll bet they have a samsung device that runs android GB that we can work with somewhere.

I'm betting that if you can get a working Kernel and CWM for GB up and running, it will at least give us Sprint Tab owners a good starting point to see what works what's broken and where we stand.

This will be awesome once up and running... Sprint tabs do not have the love that GSM have.

Let me know if you need help.
