The main difference from his copy (cyanogenmod 7.1):
- Google Apps (20110828) applied
- Updated to latest Google Play Store (3.7.15)
- update.zip modified to work on 4EXT Touch Recovery (ui disable)
Tested so far off of 4EXT Touch Recovery 126.96.36.199 RC5
What doesn't work and probably will never work unless someone makes new kernel modules for 188.8.131.52 (ie: the .ko files can be placed in the BootManager folder, and then have the init.d scripts edited to load those modules, but thus far none of them have worked for me because they were not built for that exact kernel, I don't know how to compile modules etc).
- Wifi [won't turn on]
- Bluetooth [won't turn on]
- everything else he mentioned in his first post regarding adb/etc
Made this as a new thread because his is quite stale, and catherall hasn't been seen in like forever. And kind of hoping that with the new progress maybe someone will take the time to write up some new gingerbread drivers for this purpose.
If I had the knowledge I would have ported an extremely lightweight Gingerbread Rom to it to be used as sort of a 'emergency-droid' rom, and recompiled kernel modules so that wifi/etc would work.
Download the zip, unpack, copy BootManager and update.zip [zip can be renamed] to the SD card. Boot into recovery mode, run the update.zip to start up CyanogenMod 7.1 form the SD Card. (The original README is in the zip)
When you're in for the first time you'll notice the usual Google Apps setup screen, but it'll be in german. To change the language:
Press "Setup abschliben"
Press "Sprache ändern", select appropriate language
Continue the Google Apps setup as usual
It is advised that you do not allow it to automatically let it restore/install your apps as there will be no wifi connectivity and would be done over your data connectivity.

Video from when I was first playing with it (after I put the 4EXT code in, but before I added gapps).
