It was bound to happen, so here it is. The Grouper running Android 6.0!

What works:
- WiFi
- display
- audio
- Bluetooth (partially)
- Multiwindow
- Auto-rotate

What's broken:
- OTG
- surfaceflinger*

What's untested:
- camera
- NFC

I will not offer a ROM zip at this point due to the fact that the rootfs is inherently insecure for the time being. However, the sources are available below and should be bootable.

I highly encourage the use of the stock 3.1 kernel. I've modified sepolicy to allow old kernels to run.

For some reason, surfaceflinger isn't looking in the /system for the GPU binaries. To bypass this I had to symlink them to the rootfs.

Wow. Though, it would be great if anyone -- or the OP -- could cook the ROM and share the link. Looks good enough.

A link will be posted as soon as we fix Surfaceflinger and a couple bugs in the 3.4 kernel.

Having done this already, let me add:

most likely also you have gps broken, and nfc broken
i am guessing selinux is also not doing all it should



also the issue is not with surfaceflinger (that is just the symptom)
