Q&A:

Q: How to use "boot custom ROM/kernel" option?
A: this is designed for ROM developers. This option executes a custom script (/system/kernel/boot.sh), which may be used for multiple puproses like:
- boot custom kernel
- boot custom ROM from SD Card
- dual-boot
- etc

Q: can you give an example?
A: Sure. Here's the simple boot.sh script to boot the custom kernel:
Code:
#!/sbin/sh
# zdzihu: boot custom kernel

insmod /system/kernel/splboot.ko
sync
cat /system/kernel/miniloader > /proc/splboot/image
cat /system/kernel/boot.img > /proc/splboot/boot_img
sleep 3
echo > /proc/splboot/boot
Q: What's edify scripting?
A: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=936175

Q: Will it work with X8/X10mini/X100/T1000?
A: Yes and no. Yes, because it's compiled in compatibility mode (armv6).
But not this particular release. The init files must be changed by X8/X10mini/X100/T1000 devs first. Please check in the relevant threads.

It will be announced. For now, we don't have such update.zip ready.

As soon as it's tested by more users it will be 0.1


Can anyone confirm installation process works? I did it on a clean system but my mtd0 partition was already modified.

Cheers!
