Created a git repository for the kernel for easier collaboration in the future, plus Acer's download site is pretty slow.

Link: https://github.com/pawitp/android_kernel_acer_t30

Compiler: Use gcc 4.6 from AOSP Jellybean prebuilts

Compiling
Code:
export ARCH="arm"
export CROSS_COMPILE="/path/to/arm-eabi-4.6/bin/arm-eabi-"
make picasso_mf_defconfig
make -j4 zImage modules
Then you can flash the zImage with the extracte stock ramdisk using fastboot
Code:
fastboot flash:raw boot /path/to/zImage /path/to/ramdisk.gz

no trouble, just to help
hope that you'll have a working tab soon, we should set-up a petition online to badger Acer to get nvflash

Is the kernel published here the same as on acer's website?
Is the one published on the acer's website the same that runs on the A700/A701 tablets now in fw 15 and 17?
Did you find what locks the system remount in the sources, or that's something acer added after they've published the sourcecode to the website?

It's the source imported from Acer's source site, with modification as seen in the git history. I'm not aware of any new kernel release from Acer. The remount block is something not present in the source (which would be a violation of GPL on Acer's part).

Thanks for clarification.

In this post: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...35&postcount=5 you say there is a kernel block.


I'm determined to have root with ability to remount (for adfree to work at least)

Any ideas how to proceed?
