Hey everyone! I'm in dire need of some kernel help. I've ported the One V RUU to the Amaze but I can't get it to boot. So I need someone that is willing to help me build a kernel and get this thing booting so I can share it with the rest of the community. If anyone is willing to help out, PM me preferably or post here. Thanks! I'm begging now! haha

I guess porting the rom is porting the kernel in a first place, which is not possible at least while htc will release a source for it. again, just my guess

I did send Faux and message but he is extremely busy and doesn't have time to build a kernel.

I asked for help on another forum I frequent. Currently there are no Amaze developers there but there are good developers there.

Thanks to a former Inc member who asked for my help, I can give a bit of device.

I'm not going to really try to support or figure out a kernel on a device I don't own, but a couple of things to try.

Does Amaze have ICS on AOSP? If so try the kernel from that.

There may need to be a kernel source code merge to get touchscreen working. Take an existing GB Sense kernel and try to boot ICS with it. Any errors or issues still booting? If so you'll need to try and modify the boot.img from the One V (Primo) and make it work on Amaze (Ruby) or modify Ruby's boot.img to work on the Primo.

I'm not going to bang my head over a phone I don't own but hopefully this can get you started.

When in doubt, try to debug why it won't boot with logcat.

I have tried to boot it with both a GB and an ICS kernel. I've also taken the Primo kernel and attempted to edit it but I think I may have done it wrong :/

Also I've tried to logcat but it doesn't work because it doesn't boot far enough to enable logcat. But I had a previous logcat and I'll post it right away.

Pa ha ha ha ha!! ICS? AOSP? On the Amaze? That'll be the day...

Sorry I know that wasn't very constructive...If I had experience building kernels i'd definitely volunteer but seeing as i have very limited experience developing anything i'm afraid i'm useless.

GB AOSP would be nice...

But he doesn't really know anything about how development is on this phone, except for the 2-3 sentences on told him about how the ROM is ported, just no kernel yet.


Thanks for coming over Tiny.

Also just so you know, there is a ICS AOSP ROM for the Amaze.
