As a proof of concept I compiled Kit Kat for our Acer Inconia. It needs a new build of CWM in order to flash. I have not been able to boot up CWM that I compiled so anyone here that has built recovery on here before try to build latest CWM and/or TWRP then we can try out this KitKat build to see if it boots or not. It may need some kernel patches. It's using pio_maski's jb-mr2 trees that I modified for 4.4 for a100 (note: I haven't uploaded yet and won't unless it boots).

Download: http://d-h.st/aKr

What you can do to help:

1. Compile the latest TWRP or CWM and post if it boots. Only do this if you've done it before; I'm not going to teach because it is out of my knowledge why CWM won't boot. If you come across any errors and don't know how to fix PM me or post here I'll help you fix it.

2. NOTHING can be done until we have a working (latest) recovery.

Sources:
Device: https://github.com/awid777/android_device_acer_a100 (cm10.2 branch)

Note for the sources: This isn't the source I used to compile the initial build. However, they are almost identical. The credits for the sources for the ROM go to @pio-masaki for his device and commons trees and prebuilt kernel. I would post the sources I used but I never uploaded them because I ended up deleting them early on as I prefer to use a single device tree. All my commits will now be posted to the listed source.

I am not a "DEV", however I have a good amount of talent with photoshop and have some self taught coding experience with linux and html5. I also am willing to learn/eager to learn. I know you mentioned you don't want to teach. Just know if you point me in the direction I am willing to do the work on my end to get the knowledge and apply it. I have been playing with this tablet and working on a hybrid kitkat look alike using 4.1.2 as my base. I tried using 4.3 and applying 4.4 goodies to it. Didn't work that well. The 4.3 Jellytime was a bit quirky at times and didn't seem stable as a daily driver. I have put together a couple new boot animations to compliment kitkat already. I have also modified Arora installer with a very good kitkat theme. I have used it several times to verify it works correctly. I can provide that if wanted. I am waiting for a stable build and willing to help where I can. I plan on installing this tablet into my dash in the very near future. Once that is done, unfortunately I will only be able to help with themes and basic items that don't require the tablet all the time. I have contemplated having the ability to remove the tablet whenever I leave the car so I guess we will see when I get there. Apologize for the long post.

This is not a port, thus doesn't need modification. It is compiled (built) from source and the work that needs to be done is in the source code so it can be compiled properly and work without modification :)

Thanks for the link and quick response, will take a look through some of that stuff and see if there is anything I can do to help. Also I noticed while I was typing the first one you put up a download... Did you get it to boot. I downloaded and tried using TWRP and was unsuccessful. I tried a couple times to make sure it copied over from the computer correctly. Still the same result.

Ok so I am stuck right now. I spent a couple hours building an environment and started compiling from source. I am stuck at this point:
$ source build/envsetup.sh
$ breakfast a700
Where a700 is, should be a100. I get errors when doing this because CyanogenMod does not have the device in it's file system. Whoever has successfully done this, please advise. I am over half way with this and would like to complete the build. I have about 20gbs of data sitting on my cpu waiting to compile this so the sooner we can find the solution the better. Thanks in advance.

TWRP Version?

Is this TWRP new enough for your needs if not what is the newest version you are aware of


a100 TWRP 2.6.1.0 windows installer: as far as I can tell the Twrp image is based of linuxsociety's/GodMachine's work I know for sure the installer is his
http://d-h.st/Rfm

I have flashed this and all seems to work well
I also took the 2.6.1.0 from the above linked installer and put it into a flashable.zip that originaly contained GM's 2.2.2.1 TWRP
I updated the script to show the proper version as well attatched below

AngryManMLS Is responsible for both 2.6.1.0 and 2.6.3.0, "if I am not mistaken"?

His windows/Linux installers can be found here: http://www.androidfilehost.com/?a=show&w=files&flid=9577

and Here:http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=47555451&postcount=109 For 2.6.3.0

I also invited AngryManMLS to build the TWRP needed for this project So We'll have to wait and see if he can help "Break US OFF A PEICE OF SOME KIT-KAT---- Iconia???!!!!!!"

I just want to correct something. The only thing I have done was updating the Windows and Linux installers for TWRP. I have no responsibility with the compiling of TWRP itself. At this point we're waiting for the TWRP folks themselves to fix whatever issues that lie with Kit Kat 4.4. I don't know what to say beyond that. Sorry.

My Bad I shouldn't have assumed do you know who is doing the compiling?

I'm going to go ahead and compile TWRP. I've educated myself on the a100 (I've never done programming on this device or any other Tegra based device... Used to Qualcomm and HTC) hopefully it will work. Current TWRP branch on GitHub is twrp2.7 and has all KitKat changes in it. I'll have a build tomorrow morning. Tonight I have to finish my essays and other homework. I'll let you all know if recovery boots or not. If it does boot, I'll go ahead and attempt installing and booting KitKat

Well I compiled latest TWRP it didn't work it has same errors. I'll take this up with Dees_Troy. Because when I place the same trees and TWRP into the cm-11 source it won't compile, whereas it compiles fine in cm-10 source. When I manually fix compilation errors it compiles but when flashed it doesn't boot. Same story with CWM

    Please share :) if you are running kitkat on an A500, we as a community could definitely benefit from that. Thanx in advance.

    Likely randomblame's work, he always has stuff running like the day source drops lol.

    Guess I need to go make a recovery since no one ever did :p

    Hi Pio,

    how are things going? Would be nice if you could build that recovery. :good:

    It ends up to large to fit the few times I tried so I shifted back to current devices, I may play with it again soon.

    I wish you all luck, and I hate to mention, if you post a ROM you need to post a link to the kernel source used within it unless it uses a prebuilt kernel binary and modules, in which case it should be mentioned and its source credited.

    And if you want help, you should post your trees unless it's just my trees with no changes, asking for help while providing nothing you're working on doesn't tend to go very well :p

    I'll take a crack at twrp, I need to build an updated version for a few devices anyways, may as well see if the A100 can get one pooped out too, and recoveries don't take much power or time to do.
