ok a bit further on .. I managed to find a working (ahem) config for usbnet .. i have managed to ping my leo from my linux box and managed to get a telnet prompt .. The telnet does not fully let me in due to lack of job control i think but for now this is cool ..

Markinus is working on refining this work and making the config default so we can all benefit without the pain ..

for now if you want to see (well my brain dumps and some other output ...

http://pastebin.com/D2VZYFiv

and try the Image, root filesystem and default.txt (and dot-config if your kernel compile inclined)

The shell is crashy and not useful yet ...

Enjoy !

just wanted to drop in and say hi. unfortunately there's no news yet regarding the freeze problem.
that video is just a joke. some VNC client as they say on the site. as you can see he has winmo screenlock ^^

once we have the kernel problem fixed of course you can run maemo on the hd2.

edit: btw, any datasheet news ?

It's kinda quiet in here since the recent news about WP7S.

Thanx for the update DCordes, can you put into perspective on where about you guys are then?

Is Linux booting?
If so, how is it running?
What hardware are you having problems with?
What hardware is working?

Do you have a projected ET for having Android on the HD2? Even if not finalised, but maybe first Boot?

Thanx

Keep up the good work guys (DCordes, Netripper, Markinus, CR2, Tidsk and the rest of the guys)

it's actually all in the first post. we have that problem with the kernel freezing and we don't know why yet. that's the big show stopper right now.
except for that the overall situation looks very good! sd card and even usb host is working already ^^

Hi from France,

No idea about the kernel freeze problem ... What should happen after SD card driver being loaded ?


About the multitouch datasheet, I've been searching for it for 2 days, I didn't find anything. I just asked Elan about the release date of this. Waiting for reply ...

Thanks for your work

for me it crashes after init is executed (initrd or extracted to mmc, no difference) or when rootdelay is added in cmdline.

thanks I'm very curiious if somebody will get a reply when I tried the same thing for an aptina camera module they never answered.
with usb host working it's actually not so critical. we could use usb mouse or keyboard until we have a working leo ts driver.

Well, the guys that are really actively working on this are written in the first post.
Anyway, Tigerzen, Cass_VM and me, we're working on this with more relax, but we're only active testers and rarely we've helped in the kernel development (if we have).

There are many things working now, but what we really need is a datasheet for our Elan digitizer(/controller) for developing a driver for our touchscreen.

Hoping the best....

Is this not the correct datasheet? I read that it is the touchscreen, what you had was multitouch. IDK. tying my best.
