[TESTING] 3.3/3.4 kernels
Let's make life less complicated and start a new thread for people to provide feedback on 2.6.39, ... 3.3, 3.4 (NEW) RHODIUM kernels. The source repository is here
. Note, older trees are not under active development.
By the way, these kernels are developed jointly with jonpry, WisTilt2, and bzo. In addition a lot of code is shared with people that maintain active msm kernel branches (emwe, acl, Alex). Finally, all Xdandroid Kernel developers
have in one way or another contributed code.
1. Feel free to use any of these kernels, however DO NOT submit a post in this thread that amounts to "This feature does not work for me." If you wish to submit a bug report, make sure you are proficient at using ADB, AND have installed GetLogs
. In your post you should:
a. Include GetLogs output of the problem (or it didn't happen).
b. Include Rhodium model (100, 210, etc).
c. Try to reproduce the problem on the other kernels.
All other bug reports will likely not receive full attention.
2. These kernels are to be used with GBX0B
3. These are auto-built at:
Auto Built Service generously provided by WisTilt2
The autobuild is down. Please use these links, they were the final kernel builds that were on the autobuild site.
4. What works:
This list should look very similar to the current status of .27 with your device. Meaning, if you have a rhodium on which the camera does not work with .27 (for example), camera will not work with these kernels as well. Please do not report issues that are present on .27+your device.
- Only 3.0 has BT support. Would appreciate some feedback on this. I get the impression that pairing/connecting takes a bit of patience, but I am interested in how this compares to BT in .27. If we get some positive feedback we can enable BT support across all three kernels.
5. How do these three kernels differ: They are maintained by the same group of people, and consequently differ very little. There are slight variations in power management code, but other than that they are hard to distinguish in terms of functionality.
6. Kexec: To hot-swap the kernels (boot with a new kernel without rebooting into WinMo):
a. While in Android, copy the new kernel and modules to the same location (over-writing the zImage) as your current kernel (adb push).
b. Go to the shutdown menu in GB, and select "Kexec".
c. Phone will reboot within Android, using the new kernel.
7. Finally, I don't have too much time to hang around xda, so you shouldn't hope for "next-business day" response policy
I am just hoping we can attract the advanced user to these kernels, that can do most of the troubleshooting on their own.
Enjoy, RHOD has to be one of only a handful of android devices that are pairing android with kernels as advanced as these.
