Hi guys,

I stopped a while to build rom for tatoo but I continued to follow the thread.
For fun I have compiled the latest stable kernel ... if anyone cares to test it I'll put the link here.

I take this opportunity to insert a link to my kernel sources generated using HTC.
I think it's correct to use this kernel for the development of libraries on the camera and radio, as it turns out to be the only kernel you know works.
Compiling the latest kernel I have seen many great features ... but totally missing some drivers, such as those in radio ...
I do not understand this anxiety developers to have a custom kernel and the most updated ... But I think it is appropriate to start building a secure kernel. When the camera and the radio works then you can create as many kernels you want ... but not before.

This is my thought ... meanwhile I'll use this post to whoever wants to download the kernel and HTC for those who want to test my kernel 2.6.35.4.

Kernel_2.6.29_HTC
contain for shure all drivers for FMRadio,camera,bt ecc and all htc patches (if presents). this kernel il generated from HTC kernel source downloaded from htc site.
Features added: ext3 and ext4 partitions support

Kernel_2.6.35.4_v1NOT WORKING
Is a testing kernel. it is generated compiling the last stable source released on kernel.org

Kernel_2.6.35.4_v2
- FMRadio diriver inculded
- voltage and current regulator support
- Led drivers
- ext3 ext4

Although Im no dev, this is actually very sensible. Id rather had a slightly outdated but FULLY functional kernel, than the most up-to-date but crippled one...

This is because he based it on the stock Linux kernel, and not the android branch... I don't even know if it's compiled for ARM or x86, but I'll check that soon...

Sent from my HTC Hero using XDA App

EDIT: I have checked for the kernel architecture and it is compiled for ARM. I also took the liberty of extracting the config from it, and saw that it seriously need lots of attention. I have attached a copy of the config below... BTW: good luck with getting this to work :)

if u don't know i haven't a tatto for testing.
if anyone want test and send me the error i will try to fix if i find the time.
for me the only correct kernel is the 2.6.29 compiled from the htc source. All other kernel is only a game.
For the next time...learn to read all post before writing.


Thanks
