I had gb running on b7610. Will check if I can recover any of the sources for it. These could easily be adapted to i8000

this is a starting point: [url="https://github.com/omnia2droid/Android"]https://github.com/omnia2droid/Android[/url]
it contains a manifest containing all sources needed to build froyo
What is not there is device specific sources. We can reconstruct them from spica device sources

edit: ah found my manifest for gingerbread, which worked:
[url="http://pastebin.com/V9xRHCwj"]http://pastebin.com/V9xRHCwj[/url]

the devicesources are not on my github anymore :( but I will try to reconstruct this weekend for I8000
What I need is (sorry for being lazy) a link to a working image for I8000 to make a working image for I8000.
It is too long ago to refigure that, so I want to implement it over a working froyo image to test it.

Please do keep in mind I have no hardware to test myself! Edited by erikcas

Tested [url="http://sourceforge.net/projects/gingerbread234/"]http://sourceforge.n...gingerbread234/[/url] .
With Ubuntu un-tar all to ext4 (internal storage). Open folder with files as Administrator and copy all inside to root of ext4 (due to wrong package, it un-tar in single folder). Delete above folder.
Copy dpram.ko, libertasspi.ko, multipdp.ko from any (latest) working Omnia2 ROM to system/lib/modules. Edit lines to load modules in init.rc file (begining of file) accordingly.
Delete from SD folder both radio bin and add any radio bin you like.
Edit system/etc/mount.sh to load correct radio bin and modules.
Replace files for hard buttoms in usr folder.
Save all and star with Twister 1 zImage.
SD card - ok, swap - ok, internet 3G - ok.
Can increase fonts, till next reboot. Can choise gsm provider.
No sounds, no Wi-Fi, no bluetooth.
It is not fast due to need to be edited. Can not run root script.
That all what i did.
I can make image and give a link... Edited by Antoxa1998

Should be OK now. Sorry.
If you want to see Internal storage edit init.rc same as omlaxy.
Add "mkdir /storage 0755 system system",
"[size=4]mount vfat /dev/block/mmcblk1p1 /storage iocharset=utf8[/size]
chown system system /storage
chmod 0777 /storage" and create folder "storage" in the root of ext4.

On the kernel side, the most advanced "open source" kernel for i8000 can be found here:
https://github.com/ipaq3870/o2droid
(see under [url="https://github.com/ipaq3870/o2droid/tree/i8000/kern_2.6.32"]kern_2.6.32[/url])

And a topic here about it: http://www.modaco.com/topic/354117-kernel-experiment-40-updated-20120528/
NB: the original author has disappeared for a while... :-(

And a nice ROM that is working: http://o2droid.phj.hu/index_en.php
And: http://code.google.com/p/omnia2droid/

Give us some news!

Hi Antoxa, news from your effort to develop ginger for omnia?
Yesterday at 19.00 i have booted rom till today morning: at 6 a.m. phone was dead.
I think cause is not scaling frequencies processor to deep sleep, so too much battery drain.
With the same kernel (kukafei) in twister 2 battery consumption for same time is maximum 10% of total.
I'll test again after installing cpuspy to control
