[Steps]
Extract above tar.gz in / and then
Download CodeSourcy Compiler from here
https://sourcery.mentor.com/sgpp/li...rm-none-eabi/arm-2011.03-42-arm-none-eabi.bin
Install above C compiler then issue following command in source directory extracted above

make ARCH=arm tsunagi_defconfig
make -j16 ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=/arm-2011.03/bin/arm-none-eabi- zImage

When this steps complete you will get zImage in arch/arm/boot folder



New Image Android 2.2.1 with Audio , WiFi + AP mode , Bluetooth

http://www.multiupload.com/HFZUWFNX0I

Just extract above file to \Storage Card and go to \Stroage Card\2.2 click on CLRCAD (4-5 times) and then click on Haret

(In this version there is no need to copy nvram.txt to \Storage Card)


New Image Android 2.3.5 with WIFI and Bluetooth

http://www.multiupload.com/QUT30LPS8K

extract to SD card and then go to \Storage card\fathom
Click on clrcad 4-5 times and then click on haret

For wifi it is must to copy \windows\nvram.txt to \Storage Card
if it is difficult to copy from windows folder use attached one

[Note : In this version i have disabled fb console so you will not see any text while booting so wait at least wait 5 min if none appears do soft reboot and then retry]

I have worked on Toshiba kernel and ported that kernel for LG fathom.

As of Now following Works
GSM (Partially)
Battery
TouchScreen
3D
Audio (only through front speaker)
Keypad (Need some work with Fn key)
Battery
USB (start haret while usb connected)
USB Mass Storage and ADB
wifi

Not working
Bluetooth
Vibrator

Issue( Solved now)
1) Screen will flicker when USB cable was removed. workaround is to set any live wallpaper.

How to run

extract files on Storage card
goto /Storage Card/tg01
click 4-5 times on clrcad
and then run haret-pre-0.5.3-20100625_144828-QSD8250-ONLY.exe

http://www.multiupload.com/GK0FCMUVX6

for wifi extract following file and put replace zImage with this one and copy bcm4329.ko to /system/lib/modules also copy \windows\nvram.txt to \Storage Card

Link for wifi

Hello bro, i'm from india. I own lg fathom and i checked yours installing android on fathom. Plz could u explain it in brief and also mention minimum requirement of storage on storage card and the type of storage card. Plz mention it in detail. I tried to install it in first and it gave error "smd_alloc_v1: cid 47 does not exist". And at the second time the screen started flickering and hanged up there only. So plz tell me in detail. I have been waiting for long about this.

hey bro...am also from India(delhi)
first download sdformatter software (search it from google) and then quick format ur sd card using it. now copy the tg01 folder(the folder that contains haret application) to it. now tap clrcad 4-5 times...it may show alert, click yes....or it may not....after that jus click the haret app.....it should work now....and first boot will definitely be taking several minutes but after tht its great.

rvin42 thank u again for ur reply. Plz anybody found any changes for this. What i mean is that you guys know that some of the features are not working on when u port into android like microphone, no message support, no internet support although it shows operator name and also no speaker, bit flickering but you can follow rvin42's idea. So plz anybody do something. Try anything guys.

sometimes stays at Booting Linux and then it just restarts to WinMob and when it finally boots get stuck where the pic is. btw it has to be in flight mode to boot there.

h**p://***.mediafire.***/?3rhu2u1w6b1i4u7

fill in the *s.
not actually stuck but just keeps going and the number at the left gets bigger and bigger.
when it finishes screen just stays black.

    Great Job Ajeet! :)

    Guys,

    Just want to confirm, i tried running it on eXpo but it just gets stuck at Haret, tried clicking CLRCDR 4-5 & more times but nothing! So, has anyone able to load Android on their eXpo or is it just Fathom?

    This is only for fathom and may not work with expo.
