Default [PRJ][OS]Linux and Android on SE Xperia X1

This thread is here for information and discussion about the Linux kernel (and Linux based userspaces like Ångström distribution or google android.

If you have no clue what this is all about, click the above links and read a bit about it.

The xperia(kovsky) research information vital to porting the linux kernel is available at htc-linux.org

The kovsky is very similar to raphael, diamond and the other htc phones that are based on the QCT msm7xxxA chip. This is why the raphael/diamond development kernel code from the htc-linux project runs well on it.
Kovsky has its own machine type in the htc-msm-2.6.27 (see link above) branch now.
What I do
* port Linux (kernel) to HTC phones like the hd2
* document everything about development and make it easily available
* provide non-Android distros for Linux enabled HTC phones for more diversity
Publicly accessible tech wiki htc-linux.org

how stable and functional is the kernel so far?

afaik the wifi doesnt work. only usb0 which is laggy. (but works! you could ssh to the x1 per default.)
i am a little bit bussy at the moment (have to provide some sap-python-mysql-interface for productive use.)
but if i get spare time i will take a closer look at wifi...

I don't know many things on Kaiser device but if you read somewhere that it use a TI 1251 WLAN then... yes, it's the same.

I don't understand why do you correlate wifi and android booting
We're talking about this wifi chip just because it isn't supported in the linux-htc-kovsky package at the moment.

i was reading a combination of things,
-wifi not working and usb0 laggy.
-log readout over usb0

so i thought maybe for the log or something, nevermind
---------------------------------------------------------

wifi not working on kaiser either so we cannot take the driver from there, but i dont think wifi has high priority...
