I need your help.
i am sorry .i,am a Chinese.I can"t speak English well.
I want this ROM.
我希望您能做一个,我真的很想体验一下KitKat,对于您的努力我会很感谢!!

From google's website:


It appears that Google utilizes KSM and zRAM on low memory devices, but we cannot compile these drivers because of locked kernel. Not sure why no one has ported 2ndboot yet from milestone2 or defy.. because that would greatly enhance our device's performance.

That's my 2c on it.

a lot of people have tried to port the cm10 from the ms2, but it can't work except the recovery because of the locked kernel of the d2 cm10 rom. maybe we should port cm10 or 11 from another device

Milestone 2's 2ndboot indeed does work on D2G as it's hardware is as similar as you can get, but I only got so far until I ran into kernel issues (kernel would lock up when initializing display) that I didn't bother to debug. The turnaround time for testing kernels is substantially longer than a native device, and I don't have that much time or interest.

yes you are right, anyone who wants to port cm10 to d2g will meet kernel issues. i love d2g very much and i really want to port it to d2g, but i can't fix this problem.......... it seems that i have a bad skill to port it. maybe i should learn something more...

If someone can make this possible, I'd absolutely love to use it.
