The kernel compiled fine for me (haven't tried running it though). I guess you had too new toolchain. Try this one:

export PATH=YOURANDROIDTREE/prebuilts/gcc/linux-x86/arm/arm-linux-androideabi-4.6/bin/:$PATH
TARGET_BUILD_VARIANT=user TARGET_PRODUCT=ahong89_wet_jb2 MTK_ROOT_CUSTOM=../mediatek/custom/ make

Notice: I think that normally on MTK kernels you also have to set the TARGET_BUILD_VARIANT, otherwise pvr drivers won't load.

UPDATE: the kernel source doesn't boot when I tried to do a recovery. http://pastebin.com/raw.php?i=4bv6fyWw
I had to strip a few things away to make the kernel smaller, but I don't think this is causing this... Hmmm.

UPDATE2: I tried to boot with original kernel settings and with, without TARGET_BUILD_VARIANT. It doesn't seem to boot.

kernel does not boot on Fairphone
I extracted the boot image and replaced the kernel, and flashed the kernel to my Fairphone. The kernel does not build so I had to restore the original kernel using the CWM recovery. How do I boot the kernel using qemu?.

Well, isn't it normal that the kernel does not boot in QEMU?

After Fairphone released their case for public purchase, I started a thread about the Fairphone Accessories.
I hope we can find much more accessories for the Fairphone (even if it's not original from Fairphone) and collect the pros and cons of each accessory.

Share your experience and join the Fairphone Accessories thread.

Continued issues with apps relying on google.maps libraries

2. remount your system-partition with write access (type "mount -o rw,remount /system" and enter)

Hey everybody,

I just completed all these steps and was able to install apps like Öffi and ÖBB Scotty successfully which was not the case before.
But as soon as I start these apps they crash immediately.

I have the FP-OS (Caju) installed, without any Google-apps apart from Maps (v. 7.6.1 installed via apk file). Since Maps did not install the required .jar and .xml-file in the right directories, I had to download and copy them there before I went through MrJekylls instructions.

anybody any suggestions?

thanx in advance

Fairphone OS translation corrections?
Hi all,

I'm compiling the translation corrections from Fairphone OS. For example, the German translation under Contacts - 'Kontakte importieren/exportieren' instead of 'Kontakte löschen'.

If you have any more, please write them here!


Thanks,
Joe

IIRC, the resolution setting for the camera in German uses a mixture between "Megapixel" and "Millionen Pixel".

Is there anyone with a Fairphone who can help @schnips?

You mean that the volume slider on the screen sometimes won't disappear? Oh yes, we forgot about that. I will add this to the Requests to Fairphone. Thank you.

Will be added to the Requests to Fairphone, soon.


EDIT:
Everything added so far. If you have any further problems, let me know.
