anybody else notice these messages while debugging :

<6>[ 152.034210] pmem: requested data from file descriptor that doesn't exist.<
3>mpd_ppp: could not retrieve src image from memory

I think this is inside the boot.img file some way.

Edit: should be inside the boot.img file...

So I'm working on fresh rom 0.7 for the time being but I stumbled across something for you or anyone else to look in to if you want to try it:

From 1.5:
Code:
# compass/accelerometer daemon
service akm8973 /system/bin/akm8973
And from 2.0:
Code:
# compass/accelerometer daemon
service akmd /system/bin/akmd
You can either edit the boot.img/ramdisk/init.heroc (that's where I found it) or take the easier way out which should also work (if it's going to even work) and just delete /system/bin/akmd from the phone, copy over akm8973 from 1.5 and create a symlink that points to it from akmd.

I tried this. Basically I renamed the akmd file to akmd-old and copied the akm8973 file and renamed it to akmd. Phone booted up but when setup loaded it gave me a com.process.phone force close and when it got to the homescreen it completely locked up. It may have been another change I made but I don't know.

My IQ raises slightly everytime I visit this thread. I am still new to the droid scene and reading my old Linux stuff from college. PLEASE IF YOU GUYS NEED ANYTHING FROM ME LET ME KNOW! I am not above bricking my phone. I have insurance, worse case scenario is I go run it over with my car and send in the pieces and a Fifty dollar check.

In the mean time, I will be hacking into HTC to get the rom

EDIT:
Not sure if the Civic will do much damage....

I'm gonna try to manually put it in. The strange thing is... that when I'm trying to compile the .29 kernel akm8973 causes me issues. I wonder... lots of work tonight for sure. I'm gonna stab every module into this thin and see what happens. Fun fun

Makes you think that has something big to do with it. Good find.

The issues I had with frying loxdevs 2.6.29-hero kernel to compile. Is that when I would do the whole unzip deal to get the modules from our build it would miss a few. So I would pull them manually. But then it would say akmd(which I renamed to akmd) was out of date. Therefor it would try to rebuild it using another akmd and mine [email protected] templates. And ofcourse fail. I believe that's our issue with a few things. It's using modules ment for a gsm hero. Maybe swapping and renaming them will work. But if that were the case then doing the same to the gsm build with the 2.6.29 kernel may work too. I'm doubting this will work though but it seems to be worth a shot. If anyone wants to try great. It'll be hours before I can.

I had originally typed that up as a possible way to fix it however I realized that "akm8973" refers to itself over and over again within it. So that's why I thought that creating a symlink instead might have the best chance of working.

Another thing that might help you out with that error that I noticed last night. It is in boot.img/ramdisk/init.goldfish.rc and exists in both 1.5 and 2.1. I'm not sure why it would be killing it (akmd) but if you were working on rebuilding the kernel then you might need to make sure you have that in there again. Good luck!
Code:
# disable some daemons the emulator doesn't want
    stop dund
    stop akmd

Start by asking forum memeber DZO for directions to the RIL interface that was written for the android port to the Vogue. They had to write an RIL to get the GSM code in Android 1.0/1.1 to work in the CDMA phones. They also had to translate the GSM Text message format and GSM formats, but that seems to be OK here. The commits are all in the android-vouge kernel git.

Also, there are many experienced ROM cookers in the Vogue forums who have moved GSM versions into the CDMA versions. Someone there may have a good ideas which files cause GSM/CDMA incompatibilies.

I also noticed the gsm hero build is cleaner. They have removed all the dream stuff.

Yeah I've been talking with some of them. That's why I. Said lastnight that were gonna need a new ril. I started looking into building one but it was getting late. I've contacted a few members about this issue and posted up at the irc chats. I believe it shouldn't be to hard. Still looking into it though. Thanx
