Prompt tf701 kernel development

I'm trying to make a start to run linux on the tf701. Rooting the device with the SHIELD kernel was a hint that there is some kind of working linux kernel for the tf701.

I forked the SHIELD kernel github, and my first goal was to fix the messy display output. The SHIELD runs on a far lower resolution than the tf701. With a small change in the 'device tree' (dts file). I managed to boot a kernel with readable output (yay!!).

I'm not really familiar with kernel compilation and the concept of the kenel device tree is new for me.
Are the others who would like to help me getting linux on the tf701?

My github page with the framebuffer fix can be found here: https://github.com/Menollo/tf701-kernel

I'd like to help, but unfortunately I'm a total noob with development and I don't have a lot of spare time. The most I have done is compile CM for devices that had published guide and device tree.
I'm really interested in trying to compile CM for the TF701, but a good linux distro would be awesome too. If you can think of anything that I can do to help with my limited knowledge and experience, I'd be glad to try.

DONATE TO ME
would you mind providing a binary? I'm out in the fields and believe this could solve the graphics issue on my root method...

Are you doing LFS(Linux from scratch)? Maybe something like that will give you ideas?

I'm sorry, I don't understand. Did you mean do I read linux for scratch? Not yet. But I read that soon. Maybe I really will have some ideas. Thank you.
