ALPHA Mesmerize AOSP ROM Discussion w/Pics
Last night was an interesting night for me. With the help of jt1134, of course, I was able to get a semi-working build of AOSP to load and boot up on the Mesmerize. For those of you who have not seen this, it is pretty neat stuff. This means NO TOUCHWIZ on the phone at all. Pure google goodness! What this also means right now, is a lot of work for the people involved. These guys have been really going at it lately and it is slowly paying off.
I'd like to pay credit to these guys for their work so far and all their work in the future, as I'm hope they won't be stopping any time soon.
and anyone else out there that has worked on this project that I don't know about.
Last night I got to do a very small part in helping out and I was glad to be able to be a part of this.
This required a modified kernel to be able to load and boot. Although I have built several kernels using jt's github source, this is the first time I have had to modify content and it gave me insight into some of what is going on in the kernel. It's definitely more than I had ever thought before.
Here are some screen shots that I took while running the ROM.
Info w/modified kernel & build number
I will not be releasing this build, as I do not feel comfortable with it's stability just yet. I also want to get jt's approval before letting it out into the wild since I am following his lead on all of this. This was done more for discussion purposes to see what you guys think and to let you know that work is being done to give you more options than just ROMs made from stock.
