Kernel 3 for HTC Desire Sense 4 Status/Progress

As you all know I have been working on my own Kernel 3 for HTC Desire. I then decided to stop development on this kernel and thanks to noonamer he pushed me to help on kernel 3 based on Theomys.
I have been working on both an AOSP & HTC Sense Edition, this post will focus mainly K3QSD HTC Sense Edition

Current Status
Unfinished/not fully booting
No more reboots (Blank Screen) but backlight is light up
MDP initializes


Need to do
- Finish off mmc0
- SDcard wont detect
- SPI hack failing
- EBI1 (AXI clk fails)
- Voltage regulator
- USB Code
- Reserved

Thanks to
Noonamer - for working on K3QSD & pushing me to help on K3QSD
Theomy - For his Kernel 3 base

[DEV][24/05/2012][ICS] Sense 4.0 [ALPHA v0.4] + K3QSD
First Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.3 with Sense 4.0 on a QSD Soc device!

Any general thing you'd like to discuss about the ROM or not related to the ROM you can discuss in the general section thread here

FATSYS Hboot (INT2SD-M) OR Stock Hboot (Stock recommended + SD-Ext 1GB
Upon initial startup, you will recieve FC, let it sit for 5 minutes, then reboot, FC should clear (I know whats causing the FC, will take time to fix this issue)

Ported HTC One V from RUU
Memory Leak issue fixed

TIAMATs Kernel (Recommend to use this kernel! )
Custom HW Acceleration by me
Smooth UI
Supports Fatsys & Stock Hboot
Aroma Installer

Boots ofcourse

Calls/ Mobile Network (No audio so cannot use)
Sensors - Gyro, Light
Partial SD Card (ext fs)

NOT Working:
Audio(Main issue causes major error under the hood)
USB Mount
SD Card (FAT32)

- Fixed issues with Stock hboot
