Here is what I would do:

1)Rebuild your kernel without virtual terminal,
2)use/boot this kernel with android.
3) use es file explorer to find the write /dev/block/mmcblkXXX???
use this in the init script of the initrd
4) use terminal emulator and ls -la to find out the MAJOR and MINOR number
of the right /dev/block/mmcblkXXX
use/change this in the bin/MKNODE script in the initrd

-> Done

You can try step 3 and 4 also with the default android system. It is likley that it shows the same behavior.

Yea, but where is my motivation to buy a transformer, when you already have done the fun part. :) :) :)

i thing makedev is not even running as i dont even see the intro .( make is after intro )
think i have to dd the image to sdcard and that the kernels calls directly to init on root dev
you remember that sdcard is not mounted because of makedev , here its already working i think

dd the image to sdcard (or even better to the internal nand sometime in the future) should end up in an better performance anyway.

If the intro doesn't show up there may be a problem with the arguments of mkbootimg.

It was the following if someone else want to give it a try:
./mkbootimg --cmdline 'init=/init rw consoleblank=0 fbcon=rotate:1' --kernel zImage --ramdisk ramdisk-new.gz -o boot-new.img

Maybe you can add a the link to your zImage and to your ramdisk in the first post if someone else want to try/help.
Otherwise the link can be found in the coming soon (i assume) thread.

    Got WPA2 working

    1. Create file /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf with the following information

    1.1. If you have problems with connecting try to comment out the line "group=TKIP"

    Code:
    ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
    eapol_version=1
    ap_scan=2
    
    network={
      ssid="YourSSID"
      scan_ssid=1
      proto=RSN
      key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
      pairwise=CCMP
      group=TKIP
      psk="YourPSK"
    }

    2. execute following command

    Code:
    sudo wpa_supplicant -i eth0 -D wext -c /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf

    3. Get IP address after successful connect

    Code:
    sudo dhclient eth0
