sorry for not putting a package yet. but good to see scholbert beat me to it.
I had bigger fish to fry in the last weeks. started studies and had to move.
kovsky should work with the current htc-msm-2.6.27 revision though.

Hey there,

nice to read you
I really appreciate what you've done so far...
Anyway this project should be community driven, so i thought to give it a try

I definitely does
Though the Android GUI is not of much use right now, it is a nice proof of concept.

To thoose who still have some problems, here are some hints:
1. Use a standard microSD with fat16
2. Use a partrition table on your card otherwise the bootparams need to be changed (e.g. mmcblk0p1). Most microSD do not use partrition tables per default.
3. It is absolutely recommended to unzip the package to a card.
4. Leave the directory structure untouched (root folder on your card must be /tmp)
5. This package uses a ext2 formatted file for the system files (system.e2img). If this file could not be found and mounted by the kernel the process will fail.

Good luck!

Hello,

Being new in this thread.
I grabbed the files as stated in msg #92 and #94, put them on a fresh formatted 'FAT32' 8G SD card, and launched Haret (Xperia X1, WM6.1).

Boot ended with complaints about 'not found files ...' messages, due to :

4.nnnnnn mmc1: host does not support reading read-only switch. assuming write-enabled
4.nnnnnn mmc1: new high-speed SDHC card at adress 8fe4
4.nnnnnn mmcblk0: mmc1:8fe4 SU08G 7761920KiB
4.nnnnnn mmcblk0:
mount: mounting /dev/mmcblk0p1 on /mmc failed: No such device or address

Default.txt file was:
------------------------------------------
set mtype 2006
set kernel zImage_kovsky_20091008
set initrd initrd.cpio.gz
set ramsize 0x6000000
set ramaddr 0x10000000
set cmdline "root=/dev/ram0 init=/init console=tty0 mem=76M msmsdcc_id=2 imgdevname=/dev/mmcblk0p1 imgdevnum=1 imgdir=/tmp msmts_calib=0x395.0x3c9.0x79.0x77 msmvkeyb_toggle=off"
boot
-------------------------------------------------------------

What's wrong with this f....g SD card ?

Have also tried (in case no partition table on the SD card) :

set cmdline ... imgdevname=/dev/mmcblk0 ...


same result: "/dev/mmcblk0 : no such device or address"

Any magic devicename for standard FAT32 SD cards?

Hi hhenault,

please compile your own kernel if you like SDHC supported.
Obviously your 8GB card is SDHC

Quote:

4.nnnnnn mmc1: new high-speed SDHC card at adress 8fe4
4.nnnnnn mmcblk0: mmc1:8fe4 SU08G 7761920KiB

If you have a look in my config file:
Code:
...
# MMC/SD Host Controller Drivers
#
# CONFIG_MMC_SDHCI is not set
CONFIG_MMC_MSM7X00A=y
# CONFIG_MMC_MSM7X00A_RESUME_IN_WQ is not set
CONFIG_NEW_LEDS=y
CONFIG_LEDS_CLASS=y
...
Because i only wanted to help out with a test kernel and i used standard microSD for my experiments i decided to leave it unset.

Best regards,

scholbert

Ok.

Found an 512M SD card; formatted as FAT and put stuff in it.

Boots correctly; I even got the GUI running during a couple of seconds, then a pop-up windows saying "No Services", then another saying "Shutting down".

And for the moment, no way of avoiding that.

Somebody else succeeded ?

Hi,

please use a power plug at the moment!
There seems to be an issue with the PM and X1 battery.

Please keep in mind:
These files are nothing more than a proof of concept.
I posted these information to do some testing and to push the development.

If you like kernel hacking the kernel source would be nice to look at.
If you like Android systems, hack the system files

Anyway, it's nice to see that someone else succeeded to boot the GUI.

Best regards,

scholbert

I managed to get Android working, or something like that...

I got the whole Android for Blackstone package on my SDHC 8GB card, with haret-x1 and default.txt (which was included in zip) in 'root' -> tmp -> boot
I renamed 'zImage_kovsky_20091008' to 'zImage' and replaced it with the zImage from the Blackstone package.

Running haret-x1 works and it boots Android, but in the lockscreen and I have to push 'home' to exit the lockscreen. I guess that is for the Blackstone, but now I can't use it...

Anyone knows how to 'fix' this?
