... maybe a good news ... Asus has published his Honeycomb sourcecode used for the EEEpad Transformer...???
Link: support.asus.com/Download.aspx?SLanguage=en&m=Eee+Pad+Transformer+T F101&p=20&s=16

My appologies, I cannot post a direct link (not enough posts on this forum)

97 Mbytes of code ... could be worth having a look... no?

Nope it's not the honeycomb source it's the kernel source.

The Kernel source is just for this device, not for our tabs

Until there are no AOSP Sources we cant build a working Honeycomb port, we need the sources
These will be released in Q4 when Ice Cream (Sandwich) is released

The kernel source mentioned here is not related to the android OS layer it could be used to run Donut, Froyo or any other linux based system even ubuntu.. And this kernel is specific for the EEEpad Transformer so not usable on the archos devices.

Want to take a bet ? ^^

Use a stock linux kernel with same version and compare it with the one from Asus, and you'll find some changes (I'm obviously not talking about specific drivers from Asus devices), specially in the arch folder.

Then You could take out the Archos specific drivers from Archos source code and meld them with Asus source code, change the config file in the arch folder and you'll get a functional kernel. For a non android system, you may not even have to modify the config file (in the arch folder) except creating a new one with a make menuconfig... ^^

For the rest, you're right, without HC source code it's useless but it could be used with Gingerbread or CM7...

Yes because you just made the point for me. And by the way the kernel used in the froyo archos firmwares is not the froyo kernel that is release by google. SO the kernel is not related to the android versions.

Yes and no : use a stock linux kernel and push it into an Android froyo (from whatever brand) source code and try to build a functional firmware with... ^^

That's semantics. A kernel is a kernel, it just depends what you compile it for, and with. Any jerk with Ubuntu should know that.
