Can someone provide the modified vendor files for kitchen to cook X8 roms ?
If you have a friend who cooked roms before for hero/legend/g1/nexus devices, ask him to cook one for us, this is the fastest way
For those who never cooked a rom, this link might be a start :
http://source.android.com/porting/build_system.html

Cooked rom should use our original 2.6.29 kernel of eclair and our rild libs, rest of system should be prelinked to those files.

Gingerbread (2.3) is available in AOSP repository, there's a very good chance we could have it running before SE release froyo if ever.

I have tried this rom Prime from LG Optimus P500 (same cpu and screen).
Flashed with xRecovery, than before rebooting copied over xRecovery files back to flash (to be able to return to my backup).
To enable "adb logcat" debug, put adb-enable file in /data/property/ directory.
The rom booted, i saw android 2.2 bootscreen, but than it crashed..

porting the rom to X8 should be easy. i read it somewhere at the cooking section
will try later.

Hi Propc,

"porting the rom to X8 should be easy",
Make it working is not that easy, what's the use of porting it then......

Just a post because i read a lot that everything is so easy...
Complicated thing 's are NOT easy.

Succes
