CM-based kernel for the HTC First

The JB Kernel source released by HTC is lacking, to say the least, for anything aosp or cm-based. This port of the CM-maintained MSM8960 kernel should future proof the HTC First for at least 1-2 more Android releases.

The kernel is used in my current CM11 port.

A prebuilt image will not be provided. Use of this kernel assumes knowledge of compilation of kernels. I recommend using gcc 4.7 toolchain to compile the kernel.

Misc notes:
- Holding power key will not reset phone anymore as this functionality isn't implemented in gpio_input and I have no intention of doing so. Instead, the phone can be hard reset by holding power+vol up+vol down simultaneously

Feel free to report any bugs in this thread.

There is no ETA, and I will not make any promises. Currently, the mic does not work in calls, and I will not be releasing it until that is fixed. You may check github.com/CMyst for any bugfixes/updates and once the mic is fixed, an update will be available very soon. However, unlike a previous port of CM11 that another member posted, the graphics are fluid and Wi-fi/BT works. Unfortunately, the camera does not work (almost working) and NFC seems to be broken due to some missing firmware.

    Numerous fixes have been added to the kernel. The resulting problems with camera (at least I think) and audio amp are userspace.
