Hey hey!!! I just wanted to say to the devs keep up the good work. My upgrade date for tmobile has finally arrived and I was considering getting this tab given its telephony option. Please keep up the awesome work yall!!!!!
locerra and I have been very busy this past week (mostly locerra).
A few kernel changes from a new source drop from the i815, new experiments with loading wifi modules from compat-wireless (no success yet), switching to open source sensor drivers (hopefully this will fix the autobrightness stuff), modifying our device trees to support kernel builds using the build system (no more pre-built kernel/ramdisk), etc.
My computer is compiling nonstop haaahaha. Stay tuned.
also add to that a couple of changes from garyd's kernel (not oc/uv, but some of his fixes), and mostly failed attempts of fixing usb stuffs (such as mtp, adb settings, maybe mass storage for external sd card, etc)
we have made a bunch of progress, just not really progress that would be noticeable for the vast majority of users
Gary, I would highly suggest you look at my github. I have a device tree for the p6210 that I try to keep up to date, but I'm already doing all the building for the p6800 and p6810 builds, so I don't really have spare cpu time to build for the p6210.
Also, I just managed to get wifi working -- a modification is needed to a CM repo. I haven't posted a changeset to review yet since I'm still tinkering with a value. Let me know if you need/want help. Aorth and I are on #teamhacksung most of the time, so you can aways get a hold of us there.
And yes, it is the 2.6.36 kernel. We need to fix ics gadget support (I have a branch starting that), and probably other stuff. Our wifi module is compat-wireless-3.3-rc1-2 (same as the new touchpad module), plus sdio from the galaxys2 ics source drop. I would like to try to get the teamhacksung smdk4210 kernel working on our devices, but I haven't gotten around to making a uart cable to debug it.
Our wifi module is compat-wireless-3.3-rc1-2 (same as the new touchpad module), plus sdio from the galaxys2 ics source drop.
You have wifi working (and working with wpa_supplicant) using that? I remember trying that a while ago (perhaps a different version, but using sdio from the 62x0 kernel) with no luck.
I have to be honest - I'm very seriously considering just patching the 62x0 kernel up to 3.0.26 and seeing how badly things break. It'd probably be best to do that with my recovery partition and "see what happens." I might also take the i9100 ICS kernel source and see what happens with that. Between the two approaches, I might even get a working kernel.
Sadly, I also don't have any UART cables or any other means to see whats going on if I can't get into a shell to see the kernel messages. That makes things more annoying when they don't work (but much more exciting when they do.)
