Here's the kernel for CyanogenMod 4.2.15.1.
THIS UPDATE.ZIP WILL ONLY WORK WITH STOCK CYANOGENMOD 4.2.15.1
Please install STOCK CyanogenMod 4.2.15.1, then install this update using the recovery image.

This kernel is exactly the same as Cyanogen's, except it has support for the myTouch 3G 1.2 / LE Fender, and a fix for some memory corruption that caused system crashes on that phone.

UPDATED 2010-05-01
  • Remapped some of the I/O memory to an address outside of vmalloc (stability)
  • Updated the binder patch
UPDATED PATCH ONLY 2010-05-02
  • Accuracy correction for the binder patch commit message, no code affected.
UPDATED 2010-05-03
  • Fixed zone alignment (stability)
  • This updates fixes the last crashing bug that I have reports for.

update.zip (also attached): http://zenthought.org/tmp/kernel-cm-4.2.15.1-mt3g_3.5mm-118.zip
kernel patch (for developers only, against cyanogen's 2.6.29-donut): http://zenthought.org/tmp/android-msm-2.6.29-donut-from-zinx-20100503.zip

Not a Port

For some confused, this is not a port, this is not one of those roms with drivers cooked and hacked out of the stock boot image. This is an actual kernel update adding actual support for the MT3G 3.5mm hardware, as such CM's full kernel features should work just like they would on a G1/Dream or Magic 32B.

:p you did, he accidentally posted the 5.0.7 patch, but titled it 4.2.15.1, so he changed the content to match the title and created a new thread for 5.0.7

nice, I thought I was going nuts there for a minute...I checked my d/l and it said it was 5.0.7

Once I saw it changed, I downloaded it again from the new thread just to be sure.

1. Root myTouch 3G 1.2 (goldcard, etc.)

2. Just follow regular myTouch 3G instructions at
http://wiki.cyanogenmod.com/index.php/Full_Update_Guide_-_G1/Dream/Magic32A_Firmware_to_CyanogenMod

3. Right after flashing Cyanogen Mod 4.2.15.1, flash this kernel update without restarting in between.

Is that all correct?

Mostly, except do make sure you flash DRC83_defanged_base.zip before CM 4.2.15.1. You'll have messed up Google apps otherwise, which may lead to stuff not working / "reboots" (system_server crashes) / etc.

mic issue

Hey guys,

I'm pretty new to this but I've invested about 12 hours of reading before even touching this phone, the mytouch 3g 1.2. I used Unlockr's guide to root

theunlockr.com/2010/03/11/how-to-root-the-mytouch-1-2-and-fender-mytouch

and instead of flashing the custom fender rom, went straight to:

DRC83_base_defanged.zip

update-cm-4.2.15.1-signed.zip

kernel-cm-4.2.15.1-mt3g_3.5mm-118.zip

through the amon ra recovery after wiping data and dalvik. After, everything was working great, no issues at all. Then I flashed

CM-4215_CHM_BinaryRelease+AdvLaunch.zip

and it flashed over great but now I seem to have a mic issue as the person on the other line is having a real hard time hearing me. I re-flashed all roms after another wipe minus binary's theme and the problem persists. I also followed this troubleshoot:

androidforums.com/all-things-root-mytouch/59744-mic-not-working-properly-after-rooting.html

which didn't help. Any idea's?

I re-flashed again and now all seems well. Not sure what happened, as i did a wipe both times.

Anyways, many thanks to zinx for all his hard work :)
