NOTE: All new releases from 11th June and onwards are going to be in the second post: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=53192240&postcount=2[/SIZE]

I used Christopher83's Cortex-A8 Linaro 4.7.4 Toolchain to build Quarx 3.0 Kernel. Even though I don't own this phone but I have buillt custom kernels in the past for my Defy Mini. Please test it and report to me.

How to build:
1. Download Quarx's 3.0 Kernel source here: https://github.com/Quarx2k/jordan-kernel/archive/p-android-omap3-3.0.zip
2. Unzip the file.
3. Now here comes the building part:
Code:
cd jordan-kernel-p-android-omap3-3.0
export CROSS_COMPILE=/home/YOURUSERNAME/PATHOFTOOLCHAINFOLDER/NAMEOFTOOLCHAINFOLDER/bin/arm-gnueabi-
export ARCH=arm
make mapphone_defconfig
make -j9
4. Now you will see zImage in the folder /jordan-kernel-p-android-omap3-3.0/arch/arm/boot
5. You will also see modules but they will be defined as [M] in the output of Terminal when kernel finishes building and you will need to find it various folders to find where the modules are.

Instructions on installing the kernel:
1. Unzip zImage.zip and copy zImage to /system/bootstrap/2nd-boot
2. Unzip Modules.zip and copy it to /system/lib/modules
3. Fix permissions to 644 for modules and zImage.

I have attached a screenshot of the output when compiling.

But Quarx said above he uses Linaro 4.8, I don't get this

Quarx uses JustArchi's Linaro 4.8 android-eabi toolchain which can compile both ROM's and Kernels while I use Christopher83's Linaro 4.7.4 Cortex-A8 Toolchain which can only compile kernels. I will compile using Christopher83's Linaro 4.8 Cortex-A8 Toolchain soon when I finish up my exams. :)

    New kernel nightly tonight since Quarx has committed new changes on Github in 3.0 kernel :)
    Will be using both Linaro 4.7.4 Cortex-A8 Toolchain and Linaro 4.8.3 Cortex-A8 Toolchain to compile.
