DFT-Cotulla's Development Thread
I am Cotulla
, member of DFT team
, probably some of you already know me by older projects related with famous HTC HD2
Nowdays HTC Leo become too old
, while hardware abilties are growing very fast nowdays
(huh, already phones with 64 bit CPUs and 4 Gb RAM? Wtf my old PC from 2008 has 4 Gb ram too)
So I decided to switch hobby phone, finally I got HTC One 64Gb
(thank all contributors),
so I am with you now
I am not sure about developement goals,
I am doing it for fun, but probably it will be something like:
1)Oldschool WM61/65 port
2)Windows RT and/or Windows Phone 8
Ofcourse I no idea about port quality - things like ultrapixel camera can be impossible to bring up.
But it's hobby, not attempt to do a work instead of a big company.
I am already started to work on MAGLDR
for HTC One.
Then I am planning to bring UEFI up.
Will keep community in sync about development status.
Releases are going to be more often.
About different models support: there are many different HTC One revisions around, I will try to support as much as possible of them.
It seems S-OFF is mandatory requirement.
As well as I have question to One Android developers and need some kind of support:
I am going to divide the biggest "userdata" partition to grab a space for another OS.
userdata it seems is EXT4 formatted.
I don't want to modify primary GPT (at eMMC sector 0) to minimize ability to brick device.
My current idea is a hack inside Linux GPT parser to replace userdata partition bounds.
In such scheme Linux kernel must be modifed to use MAGLDR
/ another OS.
But I don't know how Android will like unformatted userdata partition. Anyone knows?
Or maybe someone can suggest better scheme?
