Any general thing you'd like to discuss about the ROM or not related to the ROM you can discuss in the general section thread here

FATSYS Hboot (INT2SD-M) OR Stock Hboot (Stock recommended + SD-Ext 1GB
Upon initial startup, you will recieve FC, let it sit for 5 minutes, then reboot, FC should clear (I know whats causing the FC, will take time to fix this issue)

Ported HTC One V from RUU
Memory Leak issue fixed

Custom HW Acceleration by me
Smooth UI
Supports Fatsys & Stock Hboot

Boots ofcourse

Kernel 3 for HTC Desire Sense 4 Status/Progress

As you all know I have been working on my own Kernel 3 for HTC Desire. I then decided to stop development on this kernel and thanks to noonamer he pushed me to help on kernel 3 based on Theomys.
I have been working on both an AOSP & HTC Sense Edition, this post will focus mainly K3QSD HTC Sense Edition

Current Status
Unfinished/not fully booting
No more reboots (Blank Screen) but backlight is light up
MDP initializes


Need to do
- Finish off mmc0
- SDcard wont detect
- SPI hack failing
- EBI1 (AXI clk fails)
- Voltage regulator
- USB Code
- Reserved

Thanks to
Noonamer - for working on K3QSD & pushing me to help on K3QSD
Theomy - For his Kernel 3 base

Hail to Shaky, this post deserves a news on xda homepage! COMPLIMENTI

Sent from my HTC Desire using XDA Premium App


Thanks to all the donors for the device
without them this would be impossible

I still have something up my sleeve (Named project X, Y & Z) LOL
but it's currently not functioning correctly so will not release

My aim is to provide a fully functioning Sense 4.0 with extra features :p


IF Only I could get access to the old thread so I can get that awsome sense 4.0 pic :(

    Back on topic.
    Cleaned up the useless ETA's post etc.

    Please stay on topic!!!!
    Here's the kernel for HTC Desire only, modified Audio doesnt work yet for one v, if people want to test thats kool, I'll upload code to github once I sort out my linux OS.

    Link to Kernel: http://d-h.st/b5T (Zimage Flashable ZIP)

    I'll be doing tests myself later with this ROM & kernel also with VT rom
    Hey Shaky, is there any chance of you uploading K3QSD for AOSP on github?

    Sent from my HTC Desire using xda app-developers app

    I will do, its taking more time this time cause i need to clean up alot of code n fix a few minor issues before i do. The one noonamer threw up last code wasnt cleaned nor comments removed, ill need to do a lil work on aosp version cause i only backed up after i got the phys mem allocs for mdp/vdec/adsp n didnt bkup up when i done more on it, so sense versions further imo

    Will you be supporting nexus one? :)

    The structures there n the installer, i would rather get it done on 1 device first.

    I listened to noonamer on what he had to say about how to fix audio on desire vt, ive modified @ kernel n it doesnt fix audio for anyone to do tests its 2.6.38 modded ill throw on github n release a binary installer, audio for desire vt is at same audio decibels, what i recommend is to double check the acdb n audio hex txt files that might fix the low audio issue
    And what gives you the obligation? The Coming Soon just tells you this is a Work In Progress and he is working on it. Is 'Coming Soon' a trigger for you to spam? It's better than a developer that never posts that he is working on it. Besides, people really have such a low intellect that they can't read an OP which redirects them to QA/General for non-development-questions?

    Do you know how much work it is to get a brand new kernel up and running? If not, just shut up, as it is an enormous task, for which we are all grateful to Shaky156.
