Basically with the 910 we have no stock kernel source available for reference, no stock configuration, no detailed hardware inside the device.. We know it uses the rk2918 rockchip and I know it uses the SWL-2480 / Marvel 8686, simply from observing the identifying markings on the chip. Other than that, all we know is that it uses a 2.6.32 kernel with android 2.3, has an unknown 7" capacitive touch screen, unknown camera, etc. In order for ICS to work with the 910 we'll have to use a 3.0.8+ kernel or backport all of the required components from 3.x to our working 2.6.32 sources -however we don't have the patched sources for the stock firmware, so we are better off to just use 3.0.8 kernel that the source is available for on many rk2918 devices - of course we'd have to make configuration changes to our specific hardware, and possibly patch the sources with modified/new source code for our specific hardware (if we can obtain it).
Pascal 2 has a realtek based wireless chipset.. 910 uses the SWL-2940 / Marvel 8686, the module for this is also included in the kernel sources. The 910 has an unknown touchscreen, so the kernel for the pascal2 may or may not work with the touch screen settings. It is quiet difficult to work on the kernel without in depth knowledge of all the hardware. The 910 has Lanyu printed on the motherboard, and I'm not successful in finding any detailed hardware information for the board on the 910.
Also I am concerned with the memory mappings since the 910 only has 512mb ram and the pascal2 has 1GB+
Really wish these Chinese tablet manufacturers would follow the rules of GPL and release their source code, it would help A LOT with getting ICS to work with the 910.
As far as the rockchip and the ICS rom that vurrut has put together, I am almost 100% sure that the system.img that he used will work with the 910 as long as I get a working 3.0.8 kernel for ICS reconfigured/recompiled and implement some changes in the boot.img for the init services relating to hardware.
If anyone has the X10 airpad (rk2918 based) or the Lanyu 910 and has some important information regarding the internal hardware, please contact me with details, as I can probably get a working kernel for our device in a matter of hours.
Input Keys Controller - MFG/Model
Battery Sensor Chip - MFG/Model
TouchScreen/Display - MFG/Model
Other mainboard chipsets - MFG/Model (excluding RK2918 Rockchip SoC)
It would be of much help if there was someone here knows the MFG/Model of any of the above hardware, and it would also be a great help if anyone knows what linux kernel drivers are used for any of the components inside the 910.
When I was working with the Kindle Fire kernel I had found a very helpful information page on the internal parts of the device, with very detailed information - it was really helpful. I know that with these generic Chinese tablets finding such info may be much more difficult due to lack of interest and lack of popularity when compared to major brand tablets such as the Kindle Fire - but if anyone out there has ran across similar information it would give us GREAT progress in developing an ICS ROM for the 910. Here is a link to the breakdown of components in the Kindle Fire:
The thread to the ICS ROM for Pacal 2 (rk2918) device is here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1734181
A big thanks to Vurrut for all of his work! Hopefully we can use parts of his ROM to get ICS running on our Lanyu/Airpad!
