Softreset button is working again. That it was not working was an improvement rather than a drawback since that occured due to a driver being added which provides control over a thingy called cpld that provides access to some parts of the hardware, softreset button among them.
We have an updated keyboard driver with control key mapped to OK key now if you wanna try. It's a bit buggy though.
In case you are booting fine, please tell others your rom(version). I think that's the most important thing regarding the unreliable boot problem. As I pointed out earlier, in future this won't be important since we are not going to always boot the whole filesystem (initrd) into the ram. This is just until we have SD working and does not mean the kernel is crappy or so. So hang in there and maybe try a different rom (and let others know which) or wait until somebody will improve haret.
Regarding modem functionality: I'm currently working on getting en vogue. Hope I will be soon able to upload a kernel image in which you can open umts connections like with the vogue (see vogue linux thread). Once we got there it will be just a matter of time to also get voice connection since dzo is already working on that for vogue.
@ the person who says they make calls in android with kaiser w/o audio: Which zImage did you use (url) and how did you figure you actually made a call? Did you see the recipient phone ringing?
To those who want to roll their own: Cross compiling is not blackmagickk. You need the arm-linux-gnueabi toolchain and specify CROSS_COMPILE=/where/is/my/tooclhain/prefix- ARCH=arm while compiling/configuring. I just use angstrom-linux-gnueabi provided by openembedded. No idea if it will work on your distro/libc version but I will attach it.
Ah right: After you cloned git don't forgot to swith to htc-msm branch.
git clone git://git.linuxtogo.org/home/groups/mobile-linux/kernel.git
git checkout -b htc-msm origin/htc-msm
Attachments are zImage built from latest tree .conf for latest tree and my toolchain. Have fun,
edit: lolol uploads are in next post ^^
