As I browsed it through this 375mb kernelsource, it seems it has driversupport for a lot of devices. But we couldn't find all the exact hware names. Would somebody confirm it that all the drivers, so I can start to compile with confidence :unsure: Or would it be a waste of time, coz somebody is already working on it.

And could this be the reason why people manage to get a fully working cm7 to the m860?

Cheers!

Will this 2.6.32 kernel speed up a lot compare with 2.6.29 ? given CM7 already working, it make very good match with U8220, but the only problem is that, I only has ~39mb RAM free after install CM7, will this kernel use even more RAM ?

I will try it once boot.img is ready.

cheers, keep up the good work.

If this works for the U82(2/3)0 series, that would fix a few problems, right? Maybe the copybit thingy in CM7? Not sure, but as far as I can remember, it was because we didn't have the .3x kernel.
Now that we got it... maybe we can have another advancement in development :unsure:

I'll compile it and see if I can flash it on my u8220-6. Compiling a whole kernel takes a while especially in a virtual machine, so lets see if it's good. :)

The kernel itself is 2.2mb, so no it will use roughly the same. If it has funktions that requires more memory maybe. But hopefully it'll make better use of the free ram, and get some stuff working like camera, bettery temperature, etc...

This is a froyo kernel, so if not else, will have a great 2.2.

I'm sorry, but I don't understand... Is this kernel for our devices(u82(2/3)0) or what?.. If yes, does it contain all necessary drivers, for examle, front camera driver&

After some digging, no, unfortunately, it doesn't seem to include a camera driver, but I haven't dug really deep into it... Will do when weekend comes and compile it.

Battery temperature is confirmed to be there, there is a driver for some kind of temperature sensor.
I still haven't seen AK8973 (Compass + Accelerometer combo in our phone) anywhere in that kernel yet... if I do, we might see a fix for the rotation bug. :unsure:

Will keep you guys posted.

Where did you find the driver? I can't find any driver folder.

Isn't this what you're looking for?

\kernel\drivers\i2c\chips\ak8973.c

\kernel\include\linux\akm8973.h

Have you looked into the camera yet? Could be a serious improvement too..
