Really Good Work
Hi,

Tried this today, ran first time and was able to log on as root.
Kept trying and still works, really like the fact hardware heyboard works, so much easier.

Really would like to see an image though, to run after loading Angstrom.
Can't the image from xmoo/dcordes be built in?

If a donation would help, please let me know where to send.
If you need someone to test, please add me to the list!

Also if someone with a HTC Hero could dump the ROM, I would pay anything to have that working on the X1, it looks beautiful beyond words.

have anyone figured out which wifi-chip the X1 got?
at the moment i'm playing around with angstrom but the usb0 is too buggy and looses many packets. i only found specs like:
Wireless:LAN: 802.11b, 802.11g
which simply says nothing

anyway: thanks aiv! the display-rotation-fix and the working keyboard brings the fun to me!

edit: ok... looks like the wifi-chip is integrated in the Qualcomm MSM7200A, but i cant find the necessary kernel-module to get it recognized by the angstrom-kernel

The wifi-chip of X1 is a TNEW12511 (WinMo driver -> tnetw1251.dll, base address = 0x78070000, driver entry at 0x78087e4c) certified 802.11b/g and manufactured by Texas Instruments. This single chip is interfaced to MSM7200A by one of these SDIO port.

aiv: have you self compiled the kernel? used the htcraphael.conf? because there is no wifi keyword in MACHINE_FEATURES.

could you please provide a kernel with:
MACHINE_FEATURES = "kernel26 apm alsa irda usbgadget usbhost keyboard touchscreen screen wifi bluetooth phone vfat"
MACHINE_FEATURES += "iwmmxt"
just like the htcuniversal.conf mention?

(/me needs a "lshw" for angstrom!)

anyways
"Since 2007-04-26, Angstrom syslogd logs to a standard file, /var/log/messages" this would really be helpful for debugging!
as ive seen, you are using 2008.1 which should have this feature - but there is no /var/log/messages... any thoughts?

Ooops (forgot to strike key), yes I mean TNETW12511. I found only this :
http://android.git.kernel.org/?p=pla....git;a=summary
This is android open sources driver and tools for Texas Instruments 1251 WLAN chip. Parse the tree, there's TNETW driver.

some informations i gathered @ #htc-linux :

[21:42:52] <tmzt> I would suggest trying sd12xx driver, not the g1 driver
[21:47:43] <tmzt> it's a new port of the acx driver to the mac80211 stack
[21:50:06] <tmzt> wifi has yet to work on non-android/non-g1 I think
[21:59:06] <tmzt> still looking for the git tree for that, I've seen some patches
[21:59:24] <tmzt> which I had an acx sdio card (and a libertas one) for my laptop
[21:59:30] <tmzt> would make this stuff much simpler

so i think i have to wait for already applied patches i hope they will help us out for wlan...

i have to keep off for today...
