Guys & Gals,

We really should start focussing on android on NAND for us blackstone users.

I will be glad to help and I will be updating this post and the below on my progress.

The Rhodium have now fixed their panel issues they were experiencing on nand thanks to ACL.

Link: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=870081

(BLACKSTONE USERS DO NOT FLASH ANY FILES FROM THE ABOVE LINK - YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED)

As I have said beforehand we will need to trace the NAND memory access points via haret to input the correct values into the tinboot source before compiling, once that has been done we can create a nbh with a kernel and all other relevant files to initialise tinboot. I will have a crack at that so that we at least get tinboot loaded but I may need some help from willing developers if any.

Once we have tinboot sucessfully initialised we will then move onto the more daunting task's of booting the userland and initialising hardware as at the moment winmo is doing that for us.

Welcoming any developers wishing to help.

Best Regards,

ST1Cl<^^aN

I think that's a great ideea but first we need the nand map which is hard and tricky to obtain . After that, it will be a piece of cake .

Well, for now there's no Blackstone specific development (at least @ #htc-linux) because there are no devs with our phone. Camro and OliWe went AWOL and even people with much less skill are not active at the moment.
Anyway if we'll find just one person interested in doing this - I'm happy to help (testing/building/research/tracing).

I'm sure they will help us, but we REALLY need someone with Blackstone & coding skills to do NAND boot. Other devs are busy fixing bugs in "common" kernel or their specific devices.
BTW. Neopeek won't help because he builds Android system and we need a Linux kernel guys.

Actually Neopeek is searching for NAND devs for our blackstone: http://www.neopeek.com/forum/Android...AND-Developers
