I don't mean vanilla linux i mean the Linux kernel (which is what Linux is) the Android kernel is simply linux with some mobile specific changes, those changes where merged into the main branch of the kernel all the mapping of buttons and so on is done in kernel land/ user land so the Android source really wouldn't provide much help. There are custom divers and so on in various kernel sources (like the Samsung Galaxy S source for example).

Also yes all ROMs for the Galaxy S use it but the stock Galaxy S uses RFS and it runs grand. i have both a Galaxy S running Cyanogenmod 7 and one running stock, the difference is noticeable but stock isn't unusable.

Hello

We were trying to find 'schematics' for Samsung SHW-M130K.

The problem is we don't know how to translate 'schematics' to Korean or Chinese languages...

Any help will be appreciated.

schematics can be translated as "电路图" in Chinese.
You can give some articles in chinese, and I will try to translate it in to english.

That's a very accurate translation, thanks...
However, I don't know if it'll help us find the schematics for that mobile phone.

I suggest anyone digging for these documents to select China region in Google's advanced search when using chinese terms.

Bah, filesystem on NAND memory is TFS4, patented by Samsung, but looks very similiar to the FAT and probably has got implementation in Samsung's Froyo & GB releases. http://www.samsung.com/global/busine...cess_rev10.pdf

More firmware releases (seems to be bigger than usual, maybe because of no compression, anyway I don't have S8500 and ain't personally interested so I don't download it) http://www.kashan-gsm.com/download/F...samsung/S8500/
And for me it's very precious: fresh S8530 full firmware with bootloader symbols http://www.kashan-gsm.com/download/F...samsung/S8530/

probably the last 2 links I posted in wrong thread, no idea where to put it in this whole mess xP

And maybe someone can find leaked Nucleus RTOS sources if any exists? Wondering how does kernel works there.

Well, i don't know, i'm just curious how does kernel initialization looks there, cuz Bada is based on Nucleus and endpoint of samsung bootloader is procedure "launchNucleus".
I would be glad if you upload it or gimme a link on PM.

actually.. i'm not sure what help nucleus source code would be... unless part of it is used for the waves bootloader, or if it could help extract a modem driver from Bada?

I don't think it would help any of those, because Nucleus is "naked" system in fact, Samsung had to write almost all drivers to transform Nucleus to Bada. But still, as said before, I'm curious, of course curiousity is first step to hell, so maybe for now I'll pass and continue experiments with FOTA. ;P

That could be an old source before it was taken over by mentor circa 2003/4... Dokugagogoji mentioned that to me... unless you can tell us what was the year of it?
