Thumbs up [REF] AOSP Boot on X2 part 4

Welcome back...

For those that havnt been following along here is the background...

Part 1 http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1366627
Part 2 http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1373026
Part 3 http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1380605

And this is where questions/speculations etc.. should go.

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1372293

I have been real busy working on this trying to get some progress down.
There is a new alpha package for this @

http://iswarm.net/x2boot-alpha2.tgz

PLEASE DO NOT DISTRIBUTE THIS
It will be changing often and i dont want older versions floating around.
If you download your own and keep it to yourself people will always have the
newest version.

Please only mess with this if you know what you are doing.
I can and WILL NOT support it here in this thread.

Most of the action has been going down on IRC.
I have set up a new channel for this is in

#X2-AOSP on freenode

This thread is for the discussion of where to go next.. tricks, techniques to debugging a foreign ROM on our 2nd-init boot.

@ this point i have had varying success in booting cm7, still allot of bugs in logcat, and still getting a bootloop.

Please only chime in if you have any ideas or thoughts related to this.

You may be able to find support for the test package on IRC.

This thread is NOT for speculation, or questions.
This is NOT about replacing our kernel.

We really could use the help of some experienced dev's in this en-devour.

Thanks again for all the support and encouragement.

Hit the thanks button if ya like.. its free

It takes a good amount of knowledge to set up.
The more i have to help people with the basics the less time i have to work on this.
If you've got some skillz and can answer questions for folks then your help is needed and appreciated on IRC
To be honest if ya cant @ least get this setup without ALLOT of questions then you will be more of a hindrance then help in this process. Thats not to say we dont need testers.. just that the need for testers cant take all my time as then we will have no progress.

Starting to feel pretty alone in this. Are there no others out there with an x2 with some linux experience who knows their way around an adb shell, that can help?

I'm cool with running commands in adb and collecting logs.

Im comfortable with adb if someone could get me up to speed on what I'd be doing I'd be more than happy to help.

Im a bit of a Linux newb but I learn fast.

I am considering getting rid of my x2 (1mos old) and getting something different. Do y'all think there is a pretty good chance we may see CM on the x2? This will really influence my decision whether I keep this phone. Im really dissapointed with the stock rom and available roms.

Hey, I'd like to help abit. However - I don't actually get the point - What is the problem? I can't clearly figure it out from first 10 posts of all threads linked, I don't have X2 unfortunately, and don't feel like reading 300+posts from all threads. I can only guess you're on similiar point as we are with Badadroid.

For me running custom ROM (own kernel build+platform) looks like:
- compile kernel with needed changes (or own ARMLinux port based on CodeAurora or AOSP kernel and stock released sources)
- compile AOSP or manufacturer based platform
- adjust initramfs to match device layout, loading proprietary libraries if needed, consider using AOSP init or manufacturer init binary
- put it together and boot

Correct me if you need to and tell me try to tell me where are you stuck.Try to explain current problem in one of the threads and post all logs you can get. What about UART logs? These are very, very helpful (if not mandatory, unless you're freakin development master) in early kernel/bootloader development.

I'll pay a visit to your IRC soon.

//edit:
Okay, guys on IRC explained me abit, still counting on some logs.
