Bryan and Max have been working on a CM7/AOSP kernel

I had previously commented in another tthread that Mr Raines just might well be the most underrated developer in our community, but I have reconsidered and I am now asserting fiercely, as opoosed to positing, that this is an absolute fact.

My deep thanks to what could not have been easy work, is uncharted water, and is very much desired by all here.
I also must point out how quickly our other prominent developers are to give credit, support, and collaborate with each other when contributions come forth.
I do not post prolifixally here, and even less so elsewhere, but I follow 4 devices very closely here and a handful of others in passing.

This level of cooperation and lack of flametroll drama is not common here or anywhere in forumland and should be recognized.

I feel like a cheerleader sometimes in that most of my comments stem from gratitude and lack a bit of substance, but IMO well-said thanks are in short supply here and in other forums on XDA, so until my wall-of-text posts become decried, expect more high fives.

Especially since there's so much to high-five these last 2-3 weeks. Our forum motto should be "When it Rains, it Pours".

Cheers!

The progress being made both on ICS &.CM7 is amazing. Even though I only understand about half of the deb conversation, I feel like I'm watching game 7 of the Stanley Cup finals. You guys are doing great work!

I love it when all of the developers leave a phone, to leave a tinkerer standing in the middle of the crowd... to become a 'prominent' developer.

That's how I feel. So to call me a prominent developer makes me feel funny.

I think it's great that Thomas has gotten as far as he has by himself. I know that feeling. We have both dug the trove of google and spoke with other developers on IRC. Split hairs while reading logs and logcat output trying to correlate where in the code (if you have the source) a problem is happening so you can move on to the next problem.

I think there is a bigger picture here. RaverX3X is working on some open-source code to replace some of the proprietary binaries we use. Eventually, I will work those into the builds I make, as that code matures/stabilizes.

Everyone wants the latest and greatest OS, but the goal here is to just be able to build the OS from source. If we could do this on one version, it will help us to take the info we gained to port to newer versions.

If we work together to make CM7 work on our phone, it will make the attempt to go to AOSP/ICS easier (a lot easier then trying to go directly to AOSP/ICS... since our phone already runs GB).

If we get an Official ICS Kies OTA, Samsung has 60 (or was it 90) days to release the source. That would be great, but if we can focus on cm7... if we get that drop, it will make porting sooo much easier.

For everyone that produces deliverables (roms, mods, cwm hacks, themes, apps, etc...) for this phone, you rock!

ill work on open source for cm7 also as the goal is to get away from samsung and put development back into the hands of developers.

Thanks for the props everybody, but I have some bad news. I have passed this project on as I have to send my phone in to good ol Sammy for a repair. After I screwed up my /efs partition, the speaker stopped working, again... Thankfully it still has a few days left on it's warranty. As soon as I get the phone back (7-10 business days they say...lol) I will continue to try to has this ROM out, with the help of a few others that have stepped up.

Thanks again everyone for your support... see you in a few days. I'm back on my cappy (my wife got a new phone), for now but am not plannign on deving for it as this is for a very short period of time...

To brian and raver. I agree, if we get cm7 running, I can deffinitely get this port running correctly. I have learned so muhc from you guys and appreciate the knowledge you and the the other peeps that have helped me come this far.

And I found out why my /efs partition went down the tubes. It has nothing to do with what I did or your instructions... but my stupid POS windows machine (which is getting replaced very shortly...just have to raise $890...lol) that is overly anti-linux...lol

AH! I've had equipment failure too. How annoying!
Can't wait for you to get your replacement phone.
