I have picked up an old project I was working on, getting Eclair on our phones.
Now you might think, why Eclair, it is much older than Froyo and we already have Gingerbread!?
The answer is simple, just because we do not have Eclair roms for our phones :D
Some people here think newer is always better, but that is not always the case ;)

Eclair is already booting, but I have some FC's and launcher does not work correctly. Neither any other things work.
I was trying to get a logcat, but could not connect using adb.
Perhaps someone else can give me a solution for enabling adb?

What did I use to get eclair booting up?

Froyo bootimage
Compiled Eclair using Froyo-libs and kernel.

If you want to take a look at it, here is a pre-pre-alpha where nothing works ;)
It is not the latest, because I'm already solving some problems.

First: Congrats :)
Second: Provide some logcat,maybe you have same problem as mine in OMFGB (missing resources in apks)
Third: Upload to your gitHub,I'll have a look :)

BTW: Could you check if you have any /build/core/kernel.mk? Really getting mad with that error on CM6.

But it's solved ;)
Launcher is working now!
Updated build.prop, checked if some files existed, but some were missing.
Guess I forgot something in device-files :rolleyes:
Now working on sd-card mounting, gsm and wifi, if these are fixed I will provide an updated zip (this zip contains generic build.prop ;))

Non-working RIL could be caused from three things:


  • You missed LG services into makefiles/.rc files (if you want I can PM you some strings to add to .rc files)
  • Wrong libs (easy to check)
  • Non-prelinked libraries (define TARGET_PRELINKER_MAP (or some like that) into device_thunderg.mk and modify prelink-linux-arm-msm7xx7 or some like that with names of unlinked libs. You can see what stuff isn't prelinked with a debugging-enabled linker you can find into Swift-sense Mur4iK GT540 post. For prelink address,use google because I don't know :rolleyes:

If you can't contribute anything usefull, do not react here, I was glad SWEATTAIMI has stopped with it after many warnings and now you start :D

Anyway, Eclair is more smooth than Gingerbread on our phone (at least this version) ;)

CAF Code right?

BTW,Did you build kernel together with the system? If so check your kernel.mk into /build/core. I'm getting mad at it.

No, this one is just AOSP with some LG crap :D
And booting using original LG Froyo kernel for now :D
Seems most compatible :rolleyes:

Perhaps later a custom kernel will be used ;)

The one posted here just boots to UI but launcher etc FC. (that is why it is called pre alpha)
Got one with working launcher now, but spent some time on OMFGB with Bytecode and CM9.
As soon as all is working I will release a beta.
