EDIT: This tutorial is outdated. We have a massive problem with the touchscreen

Hi to all!
I am the owner of an Archos 101 and I thought, why not port Honeycomb?
So I've used the SDK images that Google published and I've booted Honeycomb on the Archos 101. But anything works
Some screens
As I said, anything works. The system blocks and you can't make anything. The biggest problem is that ADB isn't working neither, so I can't debug the problems. I have tried a lot of things in the init.rc without success.
So I claim your help, Android veterans!

Here the steps for having Honeycomb on the Archos 101 (would be the same for other gen8 devices):
  1. Install UrukDroid 0.6
  2. Download and place it on /tmp
  3. Booting into stock Android, mount SD and run these commands (replace /dev/sdc2 and /feb/sdc3 with the second and third partition of your SD card):
    • # cd /tmp
    • # mkdir sdcard
    • # mount /dev/sdc2 sdcard
    • # mkdir honeycomb
    • # cd honeycomb
    • # unzip ../
    • # cp -rf sdkramdisk/* ../sdcard
    • # cp -rf sdksystem/* ../sdcard/system
    • # umount ../sdcard
    • # cd ..
    • # mount /dec/sdc3 sdcard
    • # rm -rf sdcard/*/*
    • # umount sdcard
  4. Reboot and boot the Developer Edition
  5. Wait some time and... you'll get the unlock screen of Honeycomb!

I am a novice in Android ROMs so help is welcomed.

Thanks to deeper-blue (XDA) and @dm8tbr (OpenAOS) for helping me and $auron for UrukDroid

EDIT: Google will not release Honeycomb source code until Ice Cream release at the end of the year. That isn't good :(
