Got a boot!!! First try!! It's actually very smooth from what I can see. It's the barebones as in I didn't try for anything to work except for booting so I can see what's up with the hardware :) gonna need help with the boot.img as the boot.img is ripped straight off from the CM7 built by XDA user ambrice (thanks for your code too, ambrice!!)
A booting build is around 80% of the work, now it's just tinkering and whatnot
I gotta hold off on the git upload. Something got screwed up and we can't dexopt the dalvik cache for some reason. I'll look into it tomorrow but I have a midterm tomorrow so I gotta catch some shut eye
Okay I created gmail and github accounts for the project.
It seems that many of the Samsung code names are related to Italian architecture. Most of the names of Italian architects are taken in gmail, of course, as they are real names. But I found one that works on both gmail and github. Once we get some basics together, I'll publish the account name and we can start cranking out some ROMs.
It should build right off the bat, but you have to make some changes to the zip that gets generated. I put instructions in the device directory under zipstuff you will find a readme which tells you which four files need to be copied to the root of the zip (should be the cm7 boot.img, make_ext4fs, updater.sh, and busybox). There's also a update script that I just extracted from my latest zip where everything works; you could just copy that into there and flashing should work :)
Thanks, I'll check it out in a bit. Currently wrestling with why EventHub thinks the qt602240 device is a mouse/cursor, touchscreen, and keyboard at the same time. Not sure if it's the kernel driver or EventHub that's at fault.
