AFAIK the boot.img for SGS is different from boot.img of other phones. To decompile boot.img dsixda kitchen is used. It gives an error for our phones when we try to extract the contents of boot.img "Android header not found"...the file doesn't get extracted. Thats the problem.

May be a decent developer can guide us at this point??

Actually we need the ramdisk file from boot.img. And forr galaxy S the kernel in not inside boot.img as we can see in every rom we have.

Unless theres a way to edit this boot.img...we're stuck.

*subscribing*

the phone is quite similar to the GT-i9000 or at least the Nexus S right ?

so it should be achievable


we need a central github repo [preferrably in an organization] for kernel sources, etc.

right the nexus s and galaxy s are quite similar, remembre that cyanogen rom was first ported from nexus s to sgs.

well i'm not a experienced Guy in this, i want to get it to work but if we join forces maybe the goal is achieved early.
