anyone interested in porting the LG Optimus L7 ics rom to the G300?

23 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

LG have just released the Optimus L7, running ICS, sadly they want £300 for it, and seeing as it's the same cpu as the G300, seems a waste of money.

But, would anyone like to try and help me port the rom to the g300?

got a system dump here: http://www.handy-faq.de/forum/lg_optimus_l7_forum/247840-lg_optimus_l7_systemdump_p700_v10a_euroopen.html

we can probably borrow the libs for ics anyway

I'm interested :) But in order to do so we need an ICS kernel. I tried flasing the L7 image, but that doesn't work. I got the original G300 kernel config and I will now try to build my own ICS kernel. Lets see if that works out

Just use the system from the LG and the boot image of the GB Huawei. That should atleast get you to logcat stages. From there working backwards should get a working build.

Are you sure on the price too? Seems extortionate at 3x the price of the G300!

Love that massive dialer screen though!

I'll reflash to see if I can get hold of the logging to see why it is bootlooping

Is there any chance of us using the libs for cm9 at all or would we still need kernel source from Huawei?

We could use all the libs from the LG. The kernel source would help but initially it wouldn't make a difference.

Sounds good where do we start then ha ha.

Was going to install the LG System to grab some logcats but my pc reboots every time i think something is dying somewhere and i've got to be at work soon. Hopefully by tonight there will be some progress ;)

I'm unable to get logcat logging so far... it's constantly rebooting into CWM, and running "adb logcat > logcat.txt" doesn't work when CWM is booted.

What I did so far:

  • Copied the original G300 kernel modules back in.
  • Stripped the LG system image considerably. unpacked it's about 420Mb in size, which could well be too large. The original Huawei system image is about 268Mb. Current size is about 270Mb

I would welcome any ideas on how to debug the bootloop ;)

No!! Please don't tell me they went and put the kernel as 2GVMSPLIT.

Could you get me the config inside /proc/config.gz?

Right. Then I have a feeling that it's the LG which is compiled 2GVMSPLIT. So it's unlikely it'll run on the G300 without the kernel source.

The dalvik machine is crashing which makes it likely that either the kernel or something deep in Android is not working.

Looks like we need to rebuild the kernel. When Huawei finally release the kernel source, it can be found here. In the meantime I'll try to rebuild a kernel using the CyanogenMod respository found here. I'm also looking into other devices with the same specs as the U8815/G300, like the ZTE Blade II (sources here) and the HTC Desire V (Wind) t328w (sources here). Maybe we could even use the Huawei 8860 ICS kernel source found here.

Maybe I'll start a new thread with my progress on this :)
