Both came from this source https://github.com/v...iewPad-7-Kernel (if i'm wrong say something ?!)
Tj kernel source was fully pushed to github, not preserving first commit author, renaming it and not giving any credits or something else.
You can see differences from flph kernel and viewsonic-vsi origin , but you can't directly see nothing about TJ source. Seams to be same thing, but only TJ can tell to us, you have to ask him because i have no idea, i'm just trying to help another dev to add a working flashlight device to that kernel source.
About PM him, i did it long time before i post here about this, but he don't replied.
Since this threat is about kernel development, any help coming will be welcome...
yes, it can be flashed and compiled without any additional customization (remember to use correct .config).
As I said before, I push all source is for making change step by step, so anyone can see what I change in the commit history. but i stopped now.
about renaming? should I use ViewPad-7-Kernel instead FIH-Kernel? because in the fact that's Unified kernel for FIH devices, not just for Viewpad.
And for credit to who, you can see I'm not deleting the CREDITS file in the source.
"not preserving first commit author", I get the source from zip files not from svn or git format. so not only you, i'm never know too what the previous commint by author.
I just can see the different by diffing with vannila CAF source and see by the comment in the source files.
As you can see, both of ViewPad-7-Kernel and FIH-Kernel is Vanilla source from FIH but I don't realy know the different bit by bit of ViewPad-7-Kernel and FIH-Kernel.
I just know, viewsonic release the kernel source after problem with gpl violation. and in ViewPad-7-Kernel, untill now I never see some commit after pushing the first commit.
when I try to compile, the source is incomplete, not like from source that I get from zip fromat.
Sorry for very arogant action that i'm doing, because i'm very tired with this (developing F911 device).
as you can see my comment on bostonmania, I never see situation like this when developing the other device.
In the Huawei ideos we share and get everything among developer, with credit to respecting other developer.
example: I get huawei kernel from huawei website with zip format > I push without change anything to github > I make the change to multitouch enable > and I commit to github.
so other developer can see what the difference. same like another ideos developer doing, i can see what has change.
