I just compiled the CrOS kernel this morning and was going to flash it later today.Good thing you mentioned that it cant read the standard android partition table. What exactly is the problem?

I'm not sure - having my TF die kinda stopped all dev work in its tracks. CrOS actually has support for the Tegra-style partition tables, meaning it should be able to access the previously hidden partitions as well. I'll have to take a look at the source and figure it out - it could be as simple as changing one of the kernel parameters, but I can't really do anything until I've got a working TF again.

I'm going to try to flash the kernel cros today keeping the stock tegra bootloader. Is there something I need to pay attention to to figure out what's wrong? Is there a log file generated that I could post? I know that my question seems vague but I searched both tf threads and the iconia thread and couldn't find an explanation of the problem.

Just the standard kernel output that appears as the kernel loads. Most people who have been using the CrOS kernel have been using uboot, so few people have noticed it. Unless you're comfortable editing the kernel source, there probably isn't much you can do, so you might as well just wait until I can take a closer look at what's going on.

This is great but I am not sure what exactly you did. This is the android kernel, not the chromium one right? Is it a patched version of lilstevie's or is a new build, possibly based of ICS?

Awesome. I dont mean to be critical and I think all progress is great but why the work on the android kernel and not on the chrome one? I dont really understand the differences and so I am not sure why work on getting the android kernel to work if most people porting ubuntu to android devices (iconia, ac100, etc.) have been using the cros kernel?

nVidia L4T rel15alpha breaks the interface yet again, L4T r12beta is the only pack that will work with the ICS kernel
