my only goal is to use my Nexus 7 (2013 version, running kitkat) to view digital television (dvb-t).
Therefore, have I unlocked it (with complete erase grrr), then rooted it.
And finally, read about one hundred message threads on xda to know how to compile dvb modules for my kernel (3.4.0-gac9222c).

My problem, after all this work, is that it seems that Google did not compile its kernel with modules support.
After doing
# lsmod, I got the following error:
/proc/modules: No such file or directory.

This means apparently that there is no modules support for this kernel.

My 2 questions is the following:
(1) is it possible to flash a kernel image on my nexus 7 to get module support
(2) is it possible to do that without reflashing my ROM (my stock ROM is enough for my needs)

I am now in the process of recompiling my own kernel for my Nexus 7 2013, incorporating the DVB-T drivers that I need.
I found a very good tutorial for doing this:

The only problem is that the sources of dvb usb drivers in the Android kernel are not up-to-date.
I am searching an easy way to inject the last sources from git:// into the Android kernel?
The directory structure is different. I think i will be forced to update the Makefiles and the Kconfig files by hand, and add & replace .c and .h files manually. I someone has a better (more lazy) solution, I am interrested

Meanwhile, I play with an old Freecom usb DVB-T stick that is supported by old media sources in the Android kernel.
