Guys guys, stop hijacking YardE's thread, it's only for cm7 porting, let sky and yarde update it whenever they have something new, for all other links and questions use the general sections, this thread is polluted enough already.

After some hour of work, I successfully built a CM7 rom using the YardE's code from his github repo.

Let me take a bit of familiarity with this stuff, so I can help you to make this port. Hopefully.

BTW, Skywalker's repo on github looks more different than YardE's repo. On which one are you guys working ATM? Do we've two different ports?

Currently Skywalker01 is active there's no sign of yarde, so i think you better use skywalker's repo.

Congratulations on that ! If it also actually boots you are only the third one who has accomplished that for the i9001 to my best knowledge. That's including YardE and myself

Actually I don't understand "Let me take a bit of familiarity", can you explain what you mean by that ?

And it's even more different on my local system because it's a quite old state there on github

On none I guess. YardE was inactive for more than a month now, don't know if he even surrendered the project. manveru0 has quit i9001 development nearly 3 months ago. And I paused the CM7 development about 2 weeks ago in favor of my SkyHigh kernel development and a one week trip abroad. And I am not aware of any other experienced coder in i9001 development and that's the skill level you will need at least to succeed in porting an AOSP ROM to our phone IMHO.

Oh yes, YardE tried the classic way and was stuck with audio. Maybe you can solve the mystery why the gingerbread sources don't work on our device.

I had the same problem and went for a complete other solution. I tried to backport the ics audio sources to gingerbread since CM9 audio works on the i8150. Actually I succeeded to a certain degree which means you can hear some sound on my unpublished CM7 prealpha built. But this hybrid android source was merged and modified in numerous source files creating more problems than solving so I still think it is no good idea to publish anything of that. OpenSLES isn't ported at all yet, camera wasn't working at all and I needed a whole week just to make the front camera work. Back camera (webcam) and video camera still not working and much more problems. So it seems to become an endless project. Maybe I have to abandon the hybrid approach after all and try to find out why the original gingerbread audio libraries don't work on the i9001 and how samsung modified them in their stock ROMs. Of course Samsung didn't release any sources for that (and the camera and so on) claiming it contains copyrighted proprietary techniques.

Some days ago I wrote an email to arco89, the guy working on CM9 for the samsung galaxy W (as you can see here).

So, this is the mail and his reply : http://cl.ly/0M38230k0e2P2d1R3S17

Skywalker01, Mite be a good time now to ask Arco89 if he would like to help?
(That quote is extracted from the i9001 general thread)

Also, Hope you had a good holiday!

I built it, but I didn't try it on my phone yet.
I'm new to the Android ambient, but I'm very familiar to the *nix systems. So, I hope to learn quickly how it works.

Ok! I'll try to make the audio working in the YardE rom then. Though, I'm a bit discouraged because you did prefer to start a new solution instead of fix it. Maybe I'm more lucky

That was my state also when I started with the project

Well, to be honest I didn't prefer that. It was just logical: I was compelled to a different approach due to the hopelessness. All attempts of YardE and myself to fix the gingerbread sources miserably failed

But hopefully you can find the crucial fix that we overlooked

There would be easier to port from arco68 CM9? I've just officially released the test version http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1576874. Samsung galaxy W is "same" like S+ only other screen. Yes?
