JackpotClavin first got a 3.x kernel working on the SGP5.0. He used this kernel and a modified Captivate firmware to release a CM10 "preview." Since then, he has done some work on fixing kernel issues, and I worked on trying to fix some things in Android, releasing a "pre-alpha." However, we were limited by the fact it was ported, not built. It took quite a while, but I finally figured out the Android build system and created a device tree. Well, as of 21 November, it has matured enough to create a zip that installs and boots cleanly, and so has entered the "alpha" stage. On November 27, a functional CWM was attained, and on November 28, internal storage was fixed. Then we decided to use the 220.127.116.11 stock-based kernel with back-ported drivers. After a month of off and on work, it booted usably. Things like vibration and button lights were easy to fix, but wi-fi drivers were a headache. So I decided to, for now, use the old and slow ones, because at least they work. A lot of work was done the last week of December, and by New Year's Day, the only things left broken were audio, Bluetooth, and the camera. Well, come to find out Galaxy Tab audio and camera HAL work on our device. So by the end of the day, I had gotten to what I consider a beta.
Now that the beta is out, this thread is for development discussion only.
Eventually, we will probably go back to the 3.0 kernel, but not for a while.
