For those that have/can developed kernels:

We really need a decent pre-rooted ICS stock kernel for the Xperia U.
The current root hacks work, but are not proper.
They don't install BusyBox correctly and with it we lose the ability for advanced shell scripting.

My own app depends on the ASH shell scripting capabilities and is therefor only half functioning under ICS.
Since I sell it and make a little bit of money ($50 bucks up till now..) I want to offer a small incentive to make it fair.
And will reward a $10 donation for the person that can make a decent kernel in the next week.

I know.. it won't make you rich :)
It's just to make clear that I don't want to profit from your knowledge and time as it will help me and other ROM dev's allot.

Thanks!

Im not sure because I dont needed it till now, but with the Flashtool you can install root (with busybox) and you can install busybox seperately.

Got that message in Flashtool::

INFO - Installed version of busybox : BusyBox v1.19.0 (2011-08-14 23:46:58 CDT) multi-call binary.

LEDs-U-CTRL makes my leds being a rainbow ^^

I know, but it doesn't do the job fully correct. I've tried this method and the Binary Root.
With both ASH scripting doesn't work after using these methods

besides this a pre-rooted kernel is a good starting point for more rom tweaking

btw, i rooted my XU with latest Binary root method and it worked, Busybox is there, in the xbin (not the bin) and the Leds-u-ctrl works flawlessy

could you just for the fun go into a shell emulator and type "ash" (without quotes)
it will most likely tell you " not found "

LUC does work, but the speeds are wrong, all blinking is ~10x faster then on GB as the speed-regulation script cannot function with ASH.
For now not a problem, but am working on version 2.0 which will blend from color to color.. and that one completely disfunctions on all ICS roots (not only with me, but also the beta testers)

    So you're the one getting my $10? :victory:

    Actually i do all for FREE.
    If i release this kernel no payment!
    Actual state of development :
    Actually insecure and rooted
