Hello all,

I'm working on porting CWM to our beloved Galaxy Player 5.0 US edition. I'm loosely following the guide here. I cannot promise that I'll be able to port it successfully, but I can promise that I'll brick my device at least once.

tl;dr : This post says some guy is working on CWM. Woot!

Of course I'm distributing it. Once I get a working copy, it's being thrown on github, or my own server, and given freely, open source, blah blah blah. No proprietary crap, except maybe enough drivers to get it up and running. But sources for those, too.

Well, technically not a dev. I just like taking software, messing around with it, seeing what it can do. My email address is anthony@papousek.org

That post, as it says, doesn't cover Samsung devices. It turns out that a while back, Koush made a commit to mkvendor.sh that allows it to operate without an example boot.img.

However, the problem is that there's a remaining bug in mkvendor.sh that TMPDIR is not set in the code path that is triggered when you don't specify boot.img

Right now I'm at a state where CWM starts and runs, but somehow it is treating the tilt sensor as volup/voldn input - so the thing scrolls eternally.

Maybe you need the s3c-keypad file to correct this or changing somewhere in the source /dev/input/eventX to another one.

Looks like I need to figure out how to filter out /dev/input/event1, and only pay attention to event4 and event5 (or just event4)

I've got something that seems to be working... Needs a lot more testing. Recovery is important, and if it's broken, can really **** up someone's device.

Also, the way I got it working seems to be a massive hackjob, I need to chat with Koush if there's a better way to do things. Either that or a LOT of CWM porters have done source code modifications without publishing them (Which, while not ideal is allowed for CWM since it is Apache-licensed not GPL.)

I'm glad you got a clockworkmod which seems to work. Let us know what koush says and if it'll be official support to CWM on our devices.
