This is how I got what was different in your code:
I downloaded the tarball of your source
I did a git checkout on the gingerbread-bml branch of Bryan's kernel and reverted to the 0.0.2 commit
I copied your code over that checkout
Just did a git diff and saw what was different and did a git add, then commit of what was similar

You might want to consider adding more tags as finding the 0.0.2 was WAY easier to do once I went through the tags in the repo
http://learn.github.com/p/tagging.html

Specifically the section called "Tagging later" since you can add tags to specific commits. I think you won't have the history for b1 or b2, but that's fine for now as long as you tag from b3 on.

Sorry if it's already been asked

I see, but Bryan released several 0.0.2 versions, like b, c, d (don't remember), and these are not tagged separately. So you or me could have downloaded slightly different 0.0.2. I actually went by the zImage date that matched the commit date. I think you downloaded earlier branch. But there were no important differences in the code, he probably just modified the config and I have a different one now, so it doesn't matter.

Yeah. In another post he said that b, c, d, etc. were all just initramfs changes, so that works out fine.

Speaking of initramfs, can you tell me what you do to update busybox? There seems to be a bunch of files in /bin all linked to busybox itself. Do you need to updated the links manually (wonder what's a good way not to miss any) or is there an easier way?

It's kind of though. I think so far I've just left all the symlinks in there since they're relative symlinks they'll work both on your computer and on the phone afterward.

As far as busybox itself, I've been trying out different binaries. I think the best I've seen so far is from the cm7 build since it's got a working wget implementation and color support too.

I think we had it on Froyo but Sammy disabled it on GB kernel due to a federal regulation.
It was re-enabled on some SGS2 ROMs and I tried to port it, but too many lib dependencies caused bootloops.

Thanks.
