(real shame if you ask me)

Please expect not too much from me.

1.
My other handsets are from 2006... NEVER hold Android handset in my own Hand...

2.
I'm Windows User.
Linux/Unix ... I know only 1 or 2 Commands

I've never formated my SD Card nor any Harddrive with Linux ext4, JFS, ReiserFS or XFS

3.
I NEVER worked with IDA or something similar.
Installed yes, but then my Head exploded
Brain too small.

4.
Many missing parts...
Why I should kill my alive handset, as I have no real chance to reanimate it...
- no Riff Box
- no PCB to play with

I AM NOT the right man to port Android nor to find Security hole

You can make this post sticky.

NO joke, expect not too much from me. We can learn together... but this takes time.
Many time. Months, maybe years...

Best Regards

after many many variant, i found the right boot+sbl+param.lsf for kernel message output.
this is my last bootlogo.
how it can be seen, there is a problem with memory allocation.

Great of you to keep us posted! \o/

hmmm... as a matter of interest - I noticed you're using kernel 2.6.35.7, when I look at the original I9000 source that's 2.6.29....

what does that source say as to why it failed in bootmem.c @ line 341?
Not enough memory, permissions, wrong offset?

You mean to tell me that Meteor bundled a 512Mb memory card?

I have 4Gb on mine...this memory thing is a bit mystifying dontcha think, despite the discussion on another thread about the nand chipset.... on the one hand some say its 256Mb, others say 512Mb...

No i mean Meteor gave me some (seeminly non existant) version of the wave that has 512 internal storage. Im pretty sure its meant to have 2-4gb at the minimum.

Wave have 2gb of internal storage, but only 512mb are free for the user.
