Series of "silly" questions
First of all thank you ruscan.callin
for your response.
I am quite familiar with Linux and I use Ubuntu every day so knowing, that linux is open source and modifiable in many ways, I thought that it would be possible to extract kernel from tablet, from there extract all files or modules (I am not yet very familiar with kernel structure) and then modify files, scripts, etc. to suit and pack it back to img format and flash to tablet. After all, Android is a Linux, right? Maybe my way of thinking is wrong?
I imagined that all those wonderful people from CM that do so many ROMs and modified kernels for popular phones and tablets work this way, that is, they don't have access to manufacturer's source codes? Or do they have access to different source codes for every specific model they work on (in case they are all different)?
Maybe it is possible to work from Android kernel source code publicised by Google and change there frequency and voltage values then compile a kernel back and flush it? Will then all buttons and TV, radio, sensors and other hardware work as they should?
My tablet has Android 2.3.6 and kernel 18.104.22.168, does it mean that the source code for it is open and available for download or is it modified in some way by the manufacturer (I mean the kernel, not the apps)? I would think that if this was modified it should have some different name like 2.3.6-M005 and 22.214.171.124-M005 (in this case M005 is a model number) or something like that?
I already managed to root this tablet and all works but it is slow with some aps like GPS, Maps and Navigation, and has low capacity battery, about 1800 mAh, so I thought that over/underclocking would help to speed it up on demand and save battery when speed is not needed.
Apart from that I have problem with romdump files because a romdump gives (amongst others) boot.img and system.tar and the latter is a tar archive of system folder and not the tar archive of system.img file so the Android Kitchen does not accept it as a ROM. Therefore the problem is how to make romdump files to be acceptable by the Kitchen?
I would appreciate any responses, thanks.
