Hi guys,

After some work on the kernel I've managed to solve the issues with the device becoming barely usable because it drops in speed.

UPDATE 2: OC fully working up to 710Mhz. Check my last commit for more info. DO NOT MAX OUT THE CPU SPEED, WILL FREEZE UR PHONE :)

zImage and wlan.ko for those who want to repack their own boot.img and try it out:
zImage #23
wlan.ko #23

Update.zip's:
For BeHero+ 1.2
For Legendary 1.3.5



What I've done so far to the kernel:
  • OC up to 710Mhz :) Use OverclockWidget NOT SetCPU
  • Swap notify support for Compcache with Ramzswap
  • Ext4 support
  • Ext4 in ext3/ext2 support
  • Cramfs support
  • Squashfs support
  • Cifs
..... more to come, Toastcfh will provide me with a working OC patch hopefully whenever he has time :D same goes with BFS backport

Keep this thread only for developing and testing!

Github for my work on the kernel: http://github.com/behnaam/HeRo-2.6.29-GoDmOdE

Github for the untouched original kernel source: http://github.com/toastcfh/CdMa-HeRoC-2.6.29

Good start points for kernel compiling: http://wiki.github.com/behnaam/HeRo-2.6.29-GoDmOdE/, http://wiki.github.com/loxK/android-msm-2.6.27-hero/ and http://wiki.cyanogenmod.com/index.php/How_to_build_a_kernel_port

Huge props to Toastcfh for being polite and providing us with this source and also helping us starving Hero users out :) If you want to donate to someone, donate to him!

wow, how did you guys manage that? based on the github name I'm guessing this is based on the cdma source, how did you guys make them compatible with the gsm hero?

Re: [DEV] Kernel .29 source

I hope you don't mind a non-developer jumping in.
Just wanted to give big props for making this available to other devs,... no messing,... no piss arsing about.

Definitely an excellent example of community spirit.

Jezus man. I am really unwanted in this forum. I am stating this is not the kernel sources where I build my rom on. The one I am using is goldfish sources with a few patches from me.

Feeyo, stick around, please! dont let the minority put you off!

It has happened before on XDA, lets not put off a talented dev so early into his rom dev career!

Ever wonder why some devs now live on other forums....

Lets all grow up a bit!

Just my 2p (no cents please, i'm british :))

i agree...

Feeyo created a good stable and fast 2.1 rom and for that he is being treated as some kind of criminal (?!?!)

I hope you will stick around and create even more rockin' roms for us!!

:D

For people who dont understand, he's saying that he hacked into HTC and stole the source code. So basically he claims to have hacked into an offline network and then multiple encrypted servers and downloaded the source code.



Look, just stfo from now on and stop bullshitting.


HTC screwed up, they accidentally uploaded a tarball with ALL devices kernel sources, when they uploaded the legend kernel source the first time and

some guys managed to download before it was removed.
