Hi !
I've been trying to build Samsung's kernel sources for the GT-P5100. I have manage to build them thanks to their readme, which is pretty streight forward.
Then I extracted an initrd.img from a stock kernel and I inserted the modules I built in that image. I repacked the kernel and flashed it but is does not work (I'm stuck in a bootloop during the first Samsung screen, right after the boot sound starts).

If anyone here has managed to build your own kernel from the same sources, could you tell me which options did you use to build it ? It doesn't boot far enough for me to get any logs and I'm a complete noob so it's hard for me to tell what is not working.

Thanks !
