Amazing nAa! You did it again. Sadly my MP will never taste ICS as. Its USB port is broken and cannot be flashed... But still, thank you for taking the time and effort to get this working

FAQ direct link and last Questions

Read Before Asking Please

FAQ for MiniCM9 and nAa kernel
reading may answer to lots of your questions !
for X10mini, X8 & x10miniPRO



  • i decided to create a new thread dedicated to Q&A about miniCM9 ;)
  • this thread is the place of your questions, answers, tips about miniCM9 and nAa ics kernel
  • so please, as usual, read FAQ, use search option or anything else before asking commonly answered questions
  • the FAQ will be incremented when needed
  • the Q&A is written as Q are asked



something else that is useful to read before asking :
Here we (nearly all? XDA members, regardless of being devs or only users [like me], me at least ) don't care about your good/bad English ;) the important is trying to be understood and to understand the content of the threads :)
only ask things you can't find, or you don't understand, please if you don't understand something in any process tell us exactly where is your problem : it will optimize the answer ;)

sometime rephrasing things can make you understand better, feel free to help us for making the most understandable sentence for anybody :)
BUT if you don't make the effort to read, I won't make the effort to answer :p (ok, you can't read everything... but read the minimum ;) )



Chatroom for support is now available (http://minicm.ie.tc/)
clic on the red text above ;)
register, and then enjoy :)
________________________________

clic here for : FAQ

this post will be updated with the very last Questions added to FAQ about the KERNEL for quick view ;)



4/ why flastool doesn't flash the kernel i choose? (any version)
  1. when there are lots of kernel builds in flashtool firmware folder, flashed kernel might not be the right one,
  2. to void this, create a folder in it, cut/paste all your previous kernel there
  3. and only keep the one you want to flash in the firmware folder
  4. then, start flastool and process flashing operations

Is that even possible to do for our phones? It would be awesome because we wouldn't take risks when connecting to USB, like I've experienced before.

I think you can mount the partition that holds the kernel and make CWM write to it. I hope cos my phone deserves some working. ICS after what its been through

You need kernel modifications for it - probably no changes to CWM. flash_image is the tool for flashing an image, e.g. a kernel to the specified partition. Note that there is a -close to 100%- chance of bricking your phone when you try such kernel changes, so you'd better have a JTAG solution available.

I can dismantle my phone so i could get to jtag header just probably not use it. Worth a try, maybe in November after my upgrade
