Have been working away quietly in the background on a full aosp build from source. Have made loads of progress since last update.
I now have the device going through full bootup, with full GPU acceleration enabled. Bluetooth is working, but WIFI is not... Need to also debug audio too.
This is based on the 220.127.116.11 stock kernel. I looked at the changes between this kernel and the 18.104.22.168 release and there were no significant improvements made between them. The only significant update was the GPU driver had some extra code added which is the cause of the blank screen when trying to run apollo gapps 1.2 with amazon's latest update.
