Coming soon...

Progress so far:

After not a lot of work on my part I have got it booting to a certain extent. I am working on this right now

Status:

I downloaded CM sources instead of AOSP source so there were some compatibility issues. I'm now downloading AOSP sources and will rebuild when that happens. (15GB download!)

Have you had any luck in compiling for the armv6-vfp especially in the dalvikvm compile bit which seems to break on mine and build grinds to a halt with obscure (read, renamed variables for armv6)?

There is no arm6 on aosp so I just used armv5te-vfp. It compiled but as I said booting didn't get very far.

Not on aosp - correct, but on cm7's tree that is... thats where I think, the armv6-vfp which is the target abi for both Zte Blade/Skate chipset, that is absent... as for using the armv5te-vfp, would there be neglible performance hits as result of using older chipset abi?

On the ICS branch of CM, ARM6 has not been updated.

As for ARM5 - it has been said it is almost exactly the same. There is an active port on the hero which used it and it's working very well.
