"reboot to recovery" use scratchpad memory for pass some options to bootloader. android recovery may handle this and reset "reboot to recovery" flag in scratchpad memory but plain GNU/Linux can't. try with clean shutdown.

I have managed to boot into linux with the supplied files recovery.img and linux.img.

On my Linux PC i have succesfully compiled the kernel with the patches supplied on page 3.

Are there more recent patches for the kernel of add-on's available? does it have kexec enabled?

The Distro is nice, I will try and see if i can setup Debian on the emmc.

Thanks!!

strange:

when i do 'shutdown -h now' the system shutsdown nicely and i can reboot into Android. BUT when i try to boot linux again i get the Android system recovery!!

is it possible that the system resets the recovery image?

That's one of the issues of staying completely stock. The stock rom does indeed flash a stock recovery back upon boot. It's due to the recovery-from-boot.p in /system (You'll need to be rooted to rename or delete this)

You were right. I totally forgot about the reboot to recovery flag. After using dd to flash and then powering down the proper way, I now have access to both ArchLinux and my Android rom.

do we really need the Linux Mobicore support configured in the kernel?

Are you going to make an standalone app for installing ?
I'm stuck a little bit and didn't manage to install, don't understand how to implement patches.
Could you post your instruction in Russian ?

I have tried versions 4.4 , 4.5 , 4.6 and 4.7. all of them struggle with the code at various places.
I have tried to compile on the Panda board natively and on my Debian PC with a cross compiler.

Which version of gcc and binutils do you use?

Also i get these kind of errors which seem like the code is either incomplete or poorly written.

On a side note, the provided linux.img and recovery.img seems to crash and after boot hangs with a fsck error.
when trying to fsck manually it crashes again and hangs.

Does the kernel have overclocking or other stuff enabled? it seems pretty unstable.
