Code:

[2.377781] Rebooting in 3 seconds..
It doesn't actually reboot, though. The dmesg, exports, and bootlog.txt files on my sd card don't seem to indicate any panic, though.

Is there a certain version of default.txt or initrd.gz I should be using?

Thanks for all your hard work.

I'm experiencing this too

Do you have a kaiser but forgot to use the nbh editor to specify that you have a kaiser? It looks to me like the NAND is being partitioned in the wrong place or at different points than last time or something like that.

The problem with the new zImage is that it doesn't load the initrd correctly from haret, I'll look into it. Until I can fix it, the new kernel is nand only.

Nope, I'm on a vogue using haret. Looks like dzo has said this kernel is NAND only for now until he can figure out the issue

The only problem I've noticed (other than wifi) is that the system clock seems to run fast, and doesn't seem to want to update from the cell network. Not a big problem, as I have installed ClockSync and just sync to ntp now.

Thanks for all your hard work dzo.

I've fixed wifi on the 2.6.32 kernel. Attached is the new module, put it in /system/lib/modules. You'll also need the very latest kernel. I made some very big changes to the sd driver so this could break other things..

Hmmm... the new kernel works for me with latest froyo image.

Wifi works without your new wlan, but fails with your new wlan.

I'm using kaiser.

The new kernel doesn't seem to be sleeping fully... pushing any directional key or the send and end key will turn the screen on my vogue, where the power button should be the only button to do so. I'm also getting worse battery life, most likely due to the sleep issue.

Kernel 2.6.32-tilt-froyo-27-08-10_23.nbh and wlan.ko on Kaiser
Hi dzo,

the combination on my Kaiser with kernel "kaisimg-panel2-240x320-2.6.32-tilt-froyo-27-08-10_23.nbh", the new "wlan.ko" and the "system-froyo-26-08-10_12.tar" seems to work well (nand). It is fast and stable and the wifi connection works well.
Market, call and sms works well, too.

Edit: GPS and camera works well, too. I think the new kernel is also faster.

I managed to get a gps fix without crashing on this new kernel - don't know if I just got lucky.

I accidentally flashed a kernel with ppp nostart set to 1; and I'm without a hex editor or nbh editor so I had to use head -c and tail -c+ along with echo -n to make a new nbh while travelling.

Is there a way to enable ppp if it has been disabled in the boot string?

Report for Polaris + newest stuff!
Oh boy, Wi-Fi working on Polaris with the latests kernel and Froyo !



The only drawback is that every key awakes the device.*
