No one knows how to fix the problem with the wifi driver?
I tried to build the kernel without the ath6kl driver and install it on my device: the kernel works, but obviously wifi doesn't work. :(



EDIT:
I found a solution (the only?).
The driver cannot be built from the source code: I reused the file ar6000.ko found in the zip of Technolover's Kernel and added to my pack.
I also had to change the setlocalversion script in the kernel source to remove the additional "+" that adds after "-perf", else the driver would not load

EDIT: If anyone is interested this is the kernel I built, it's the same as version 1.5 but with swap enabled
Download it here

EDIT: And this is the same kernel built with the Linaro toolchain
Download it here

It's possible/recommended to apply Techno Kernel after about a 2 weeks of a fresh install of CM7?

In the next release, can you try to port the usb–host feature? Is it possible?


It should be possible, devs have managed to port it to Gingerbread powered devices like the Galaxy S. It would be an epic feature :D

Yeah you can

I mean because i have installed cm7 since one month ago, and i did not know so far, that if I apply this kernel i would have any compatibility trouble or not.

Before I apply the kernel do i need to do wipe to dalvik cache or any other thing?
It is possible to unistall it?

Hi, is there a way to modify gpu voltage? I'd like to undervolt gpu.
I use technolover's kernel 1.3a and I haven't found such option.

with 1.5 you can do it through the Liquid MT control app (by technolover) and I'm pretty sure you can do it with 1.3, just download the app and go :D

Hi Mtman, I tried updating MT control to v1.4 but it's the same.
I can find only options to control cpu voltage but not gpu voltage.

Hi folks, basic question: once I have downloaded the files, how do I actually install the kernel onto my phone? I have competed steps 1 to 4 successfully, but am unsure as to how I should proceed.

Instructions
1 be sure to be rooted
2 be sure to have BusyBox installed
3 boot into recovery
4 make a Nandroid backup
5 flash without any wipe over your desired supported rom

You install it using Clockworkmod (recovery), just like you would install a ROM, but without wiping the data

Hi Mtman, thanks for the prompt reply. I have Recovery 2.2 installed and a nandroid backup made. I then downloaded Clockworkmod Rom Manager and confirmed I was using a 2.x recovery as it said "Liquid MT does not have an officially supported ClockworkMod Recovery". After copying the Kernel's zip file to the sd card I booted into recovery and was able to install it. However, the phone froze after installation and just showed a new Technolover startup screen. The phone would not start and I had to use the nandroid backup to reset the system. Have you any suggestions on how to fix this?

Many thanks!

I would use one of the recoveries pinned at the top of the section (I used lens_flares 5.0.2.8 (I think))

Also, make a backup of the phone again in the new recovery, I'm not sure if you will be able to restore your older backup

I went ahead and installed Recovery MT3.0 and changed the setting in ClockworkMod Manager to "3.x+ Recovery". I then rebooted into recovery where the ClockworkMod was now showing a different version, v4.0.0.8. There was no change when I tried to boot or reflash Technolovers Kernel; I kept getting the updated Acer/Android screen and when I flashed Gingerounay 3.0 with system wipe it kept freezing on the stock Acer/Android screen. The worst thing is I don't know how to restore using the nandroid backup in CWM Recovery 4.0.0.8! The recovery file is still on my sd card and backed up on my PC but I can't run it from anywhere. Are there options to run a nandroid restore from recovery or some of the other boot menus?

There is, but it's not showing me the backup I made earlier. I installed Recovery MT 2.2 and made a backup, attempted to flash kernel and had to run the backup as the system wouldn't boot past the Acer/Android startup. I then installed Recovery MT3.0 and flashed the kernel - I did not make a backup of the system as I had the first nandroid backup still on my sd card and also on my PC. I can successfully flash Technolovers kernel and Gingerounay 3.0 but the phone will not boot past the Android startup screen and I cannot run the backup, even though I can browse to it when I use the "Install from zip" in recovery :(

Fixed

I installed Busybox to system/xbin rather than system/bin and the kernel installed properly. Didn't fix my camera problem but it looks like that's a hardware issue at this stage.

Help please!

I screwed up real bad D:
So sequence of events I went through:
  • Installed CWM-Recovery-5.5.0.4-Liquid-MT
  • Took nand and ext backup
  • Tried flashing t&l_Metal_2.3.6_13_AOSP but it failed because it didn't support the update script
  • After some searching around got RecoveryMT-2.2 and installed that on the phone
  • Then (unfortunately didnt take a nand backup at this point!) I flashed t&l_Metal_2.3.6_13_AOSP
  • And (I'm so sorry for this! An honest mistake on my part) without going into the freshly installed ROM to root and install busybox I also flashed TechnoLover-Kernel-1.5-1-20120625-signed :unsure:
So now when I turn on the phone it gets stuck on TechnoLover Kernel's boot screen :o

What can I do at this point?
Unfortunately it seems like the CWM backup is not compatible with the AmonRa recovery so I can't put it back to how it was.
Ideally I would flash a ROM that has root+busybox so that it would start up, like the PerformanceRom that already has TechnoLover Kernel, but unfortunately this was fruitless as while flashing the rom for this I got an error with the googleFrameworkServices.apk

Would appreciate any help you can give please. :(

PHEW! OK fixed. So even in the boot screen I was still able to install CWM back on the phone using the PC and then restored the backup using that. That was a close one!
