ok so i took the boot.img from Alpha 2 and switched it with the one from Alpha 1 then i flashed Alpha 1 with the boot.img from A2 and now i have root, my sd card is fixed and the wifi has improved. The only thing wrong with the rom now is the wifi just wont connect to a network. I'm gonna do more research on the bug and let you know what i find. It seems to be a common problem in android 4.4.2

Edit: ok so i have partial root apparently. :/ terminal emulator gets root and so does other apps but link2sd and root explorer wont obtain root. it gives me that one error again. the char* ttyname(int)(3) is not implemented on Android char* ttyname(int)(3) is not implemented on Android mount: Invalid argument

any idea on how to fix it?

Can you tell me how to do this? I know where to get the kernal source but i dont know how to compile it.

I would recommend taking a look at this guide on how to compile a kernel, specifically i would recommend paying attention to section 5 of the guide on building. If you have any questions let me know I'll be happy to answer them.
