Stock Kernel with run-parts support: http://www.multiupload.com/O4OAG025J0

Remember that you must have a script (99ready) in your /system/etc/init.d directory with this line cm.filesystem.ready=1
and chmod 755 it.
If you don't have that, class default will never start and device wont boot.

thanks.
is this version 2.6.32.9 ?
If not I can upload mine.

In a2sd package there is a file 99complete with:
#!/system/bin/sh

sync;
setprop cm.filesystem.ready 1;
setprop dc.filesystem.ready 1;
setprop oxygen.filesystem.ready 1;

I guess this is good.

Try this using clockworkmod: http://www.multiupload.com/RVL30X0B5W

If don't work, i don't know how can i help you, since i eared that fastboot is not available in your device (still insure).

great thanks!
this does work, I've flashed it together with a2sd+ latest beta.
Now I see /system/app pointing to /system/sd/app.
The kernel version stays the same, all kernel modules were loaded successfully.

Don't know why flash_image cannot work while system is running.
thanks again, a great help!

Thanks, it worked for me too...now I have lots of memory space for installing any applications.

why you need to flash new kernel for a2sd support? isn't it supported natively in Froyo?

or do you mean different type of a2sd? im sorry a real newbie here.

It's a different type of a2sd. the froyo native a2sd is only moving part of the applications to sdcard, yes you will get a more space to the internal memory but not so much....the a2sd that we talked about is another kind of a2sd that moves applications, dalvik-cache, etc to an EXT4 partition of the SD card. When I used the native a2sd, I only got 40MB free of internal storage but when I used the a2sd (EXT4) I got 100 MB free.

In order to do that you need to make an EXT4 partition on your sdcard, flash the update kernel which supports EXT4 and a2sdext (just like darktremor apps2sd)

app2fat -> froyo implementation of app2sd (can't move widgets, can't move apps that don't support it, if you connect phone to pc you cant use them, it takes more space, you can only move apps)

app2ext -> all apps are moved to ext partition, there is no restriction, apps are available when you connect your phone to pc, it takes less space, you can also move dalvik-cache or even all data, there is no device encryption, faster.

runparts support -> needed for app2ext and implemented in kernel, main purpose is to run scripts at startup, its very useful, you can set everything you want under startup scrips, one time set lets forget and enjoy :mellow:

espeon, could you build a kernel without overclock, kernel hack and all the debug options, with a2sd+ ?
Noticed the one you uploaded earlier has been oc'ed. By default the stock kernel enabled nearly all kernel hack/debug options.

Try this: http://hotfile.com/d...ernel2.zip.html
Wifi may not work...
I don't have your device to test.

works like a charm, wifi running without problem.
thanks again.
btw, here is the stock kernel config for my viewpad7, if interested.

Wifi may not work because sometimes we have to compile and link wifi drivers with kernel..
Just try and tell us if it worked.

Edit: i saw it worked, nice :mellow:

really thanks, this puts my device on a shinning spin.
1) enable hw acceleration, jit according to this thread;
2) enable a2sd+ using kernels provided by espeon (in this thread too) and a2sd+ beta (http://forum.xda-dev...ad.php?t=715940);

I don't want overclock since I want longer battery, also with #1 I found it better to play rmvb in mobplayer.
viewpad 7 has an 'ok' video card, won't worry too much about cpu speed on a daily use.

You guys rock!

I bought a Viewpad7 with rom version 2.2.2.
If I flash fm6_boot_v1.2.img, the touch panel will not work anymore! Even I can receive a call.
Any comment welcomed!

Sorry, the overclocked kernel is not compatible with newer device that using ITE touchscreen.
because the driver in not available in this time..

you can revert to your original boot.img or system.

i already put the fm6_boot_v1.2.img on my sdcard
but when i check /system/bin theres no flash_image! what should i do FatherD, please help me..tnx


I have a N700. I had this problem so placed a flash_image file there using root explorer. The other file is in the correct place. I used terminal emulator to carry out the process after each command I pressed enter and it went to the next line so it seems to have worked? but im not sure

I ran a bench mark and I got a score of 380? So im unsure on if it has worked or not. anyone got any advice.


........... I got this to work after I flashed a rom. Quadrant score is now up at 750 and the device is a bit more responsive.
