Please begin on page 32
, post #319, if you want to catch up on the issue. also see UPDATE #1 10/3/2011.
The support and concern, is heart warming.
I have added my kernel source, HERE
Hopefully, it is everything you need to build the newest BOCA 2.6.35 kernel for my 2.3.7 release.
Here is my ram disk recovery cpio HERE
the revolution has begun (well a couple days ago)
Contributor 2.3.7 nightly stable test release uploaded
If you are a contributor, and do not have the password, please pm me
How to become a BOCA contributor:
(In no particular order)
Device donate/loan/ or help/support of BOCA port to said device
Promote BOCA honestly on alternative websites
Help users anyway you can
Help me anyway u can
Giving detailed reviews with honest opinion, of course
Be active in the production of BOCA
BTW: I need someone who knows XML well, and wants to try something new
As usual, after a few, when contributors report no bugs, it get released to everyone else.
Well, XDA, bad news
My computer is down, out for the count. I believe it is the motherboard, but it needs further investigation. A nice BOCA users has offered his old motherboard, and I will contact this user, and see.
But, if it is not doable, I am afraid, I must stop making roms, and developing in general, as I cannot afford a new computer.
Sometime tonight, I will release 2.3.7 nightly test port, for contributors.
The UI is not finished, but it is very stable, daily driver status, I believe.
I ask them to not re-release, link, mirror nor distribute.
Why release to them now, and not everyone?
They actually offered help, helped, or donated in some way. They did not demand a thing, without giving something in return. The total hours I have spent these last months developing a rom, is uncountable. Something like 1 cent and hour. Most likely less than that.
There are many reasons I release my work, and yes, one of the perks, other than seeing others happy with and using my hard work, is paypal donations, and I thank every contributor- no matter how they contributed- as a new friend. thank you.
added a new patch.
its a look into BOCA´s future
Secret Agent added
read the instructions carefully for BOCA Heretic SA
(Don't forget to vote!)
new votes!! Vote now!! ( http://magrathearoms.weebly.com/what...ng--votes.html
Google is still down, also
trouble coming from overcome?
I suggest that people coming from overcomes latest reference this.
(At the bottom)
And make sure you have the right BOCA. IE, p1000 or P1000L/N
Uploaded more flashable fonts zips.
uploaded HTC g2 BOCA kernel
More web design
Google android source codes have been removed.
Google attacked by hackers, and for security reasons, they pulled their public repositories.
I have no idea when they will open again.
This basically means every android device development (source roms and custom kernels) is in limbo, for now
Until then BOCA developement is on hold, mostly.
No new kernel.
(New kernel hopes were to have recovery that reads internal sdcard, bfg scheduler and voodoo also)
But can't compile without the source code.
HTC G2 kernel will be uploaded later today.
Ill look into a terminal copy paste that mounts your internal sdcard in recovery,
flashable font zips added.
I am looking for a new forum client, so thats coming soon too.
