Info 2 NOTE

Update 04

Couldnt get this working even after writting a proper updater-script....
Maybe We need to dump this on a kernel itself... but there are severe problems with that too.
  • Dumping Recovery on kernel .... done successfully
    DETAILS:
     
    • Dumped on kernel by default build configs in build system
    • Provided both, cm7 and stock zImages
    • For a few tries and changes... I couldnt get the kernel size over 2.7 mbs
    • Then I realised that the problem is in ramdisk
  • Couldnt get a proper ramdisk
    DETAILS:
     
    • Split the boot.img
    • Got a very small ramdisk -_-
  • Did try too much on getting one... almost wrote the whole ramdisk
    DETAILS:
     
    • Finally I realised that I gotta make a ramdisk from scratch
    • Started working on it
  • Couldnt get a working ramdisk even after basing it on ext4fs ramdisk
    DETAILS:
     
    • After Failing to get it working on a Stock Based Ramdisk
    • I used my ramdisk (BlackReactor Kernel)
    • Failed again
  • Finally, I added a good ramdisk (which i thought that it might work)
  • Got a Bricked device....

Need help....
