[Development][ROM] Stock FROYO + 2.6.32 kernel


Guest pier11

Recommended Posts

I believe the problem resides in .32 kernel with regard to wifi integration. Particular place is drivers/mmc/host/msm_sdcc.c

There happens integration of wifi module as SDIO card into kernel. It worth (re)studying the same .29 kernel file, and changes huawei made there vs. code aurora original version (I can post a diff if needed).

Please post. I also think the issue resides somewhere in kernel. This is what currently prevents me from combining kernel .32 with cm6-clean.

Didn't you re-do the wifi integration once to aviod reboots? This means there are two different ways that both made wifi connect initially. Now we'll need to find the third way ;)

Totally unrelated idea: when shrinking ascend rom to fit our system partition, it came to my mind that maybe it doesn't need to fit at all. Couldn't we just maybe make a folder like system_app inside data partition, and on system partition, have a symlink app -> /data/system_app? Totally untested idea, but basically this should be possible to do with the update script. One could even think of moving system_app to sdcard instead of data. Or, combine with data2ext: real "data" will be on sd-ext, now unused partition "userdata" could hold system/app.... just an idea....not for ascend, but in general

Dear all, let me present work in progress to make standard FROYO reference rom based on appropriate kernel - 2.6.32 Rom is an adopted stock froyo of Huawei UM840 device (msm7225 based). Same for r

replaced libril.so from cm7.2 and now i can search network manually.

um840-20120218.zip (download is on the first page) - Updated apps to latest versions. This fixed that some apps did not show up. - Added Pulse's sound profile. - Added SetMacAddress to correct de

I saw one rom, as I remember, where all apps from /system/app resided in /data/app

This is something I wanted to implement at some point... Because even with +10MB extra space achieved from installation of TRE/CHT8000 roms is still not enough to quickly load for tests roms from phones that have 512MB flash (vs. 256MB in Pulse).

A downside of installing system apps anywhere other than system partition is that user looses option to wipe/factory_reset his phone (all system apps will be removed such render the phone useless)...

Not if we put them inside a folder on nomal sdcard (fat partition, not sd-ext, which is wiped as well). The filesystem fat shouldn't be a problem? Folder should be hidden to make accidental deletion less likely. I know it's not as safe as having the files in system, but if it's the only way to run a fully featured rom, people might well accept it. Also, there could be an update.zip that simple restores the moved system apps in case they got erased.

true, that's the last serious issue to overcome.

attached diff to closest code aurora file.

may be something with suspend/resume logic...

what's this - doesn't seem to be in your code, only in theirs

#ifdef CONFIG_MMC_MSM7X00A_RESUME_IN_WQ

Don't know if that's relevant, but it has RESUME in its name... and 7x00a... reminds me a bit to qdsp7200a...

also, whole msmsdcc_resume(struct platform_device *dev) function might be relevant

@dtox125 and all,

I run this rom with the latest kernel from normal (froyo-huawei) branch, not compat. With recent two additions to kernel USB_ANDROID_RNDIS and USB_ANDROID_CDC_ECM, the rom agreed to tether via usb! (well ok there is no radio functional yet to tether to, but anyway :)

here are some errors, but UI said it is tethered. Icon for tethering appeared in notification area..

EDIT:

error is because android part wanted

/sys/devices/platform/msm_hsusb/gadget/switchusb
but in kernel we don't expose it yet, as
# CONFIG_USB_AUTO_INSTALL is not set
It's needed to revisit usb auto-switch functionality in kernel... Might bring back usb identity to Huawei to be compatible with old drivers...

tried to trick stock u8150 libhardware_legacy.so by symlinked in /wifi directory:

ln -s /system/wifi/ar6000.ko dhd.ko
as it has this entries:
/data/misc/wpa_supplicant

/wifi/dhd.ko

firmware_path=/system/wifi/firmware.bin nvram_path=/system/wifi/nvram.txt
then it failed to load broadcom firmware. Useless...

I just downloaded the u8110 eclair rom - wanted to to look at wifi there.

First thing I noticed - wpa_supplicant there is v5 but uses wext driver, not awext as v5 does for us in CMx

Problem: notes.txt says you have used a kernel with cm6 ramdisk, which means that in init.rc it will initialize with -dawext.

Maybe that's the reason wifi doesn't run there. As you posted recently, u8110 has our wifi, so we could expect at least that u8110 rom to have working wifi... do you still have the original boot.img of that rom somewhere?

i think true issue is that cm6 libhardware_legacy.so tries to open command sockets somewhere else than defined in wpa_supplicant.conf.

cm6 rom has special symlink for it.

Here are my notes:

libhardware_legacy.so (strings):

cm6.1:

/data/system/wpa_supplicant

/system/wifi/ar6000.ko

u8220:

/data/system/wpa_supplicant

/system/wifi/ar6000.ko

u8150:

/data/misc/wpa_supplicant

/wifi/dhd.ko

firmware_path=/system/wifi/firmware.bin nvram_path=/system/wifi/nvram.txt

cm6.1 (init.qcom.rc):

symlink /data/misc/wifi/wpa_supplicant /data/system/wpa_supplicant

wpa_supplicant.conf:

cm6.1:

update_config=1

ctrl_interface=DIR=/data/misc/wifi/wpa_supplicant GROUP=wifi

u8150:

update_config=1

ctrl_interface=DIR=/data/misc/wpa_supplicant GROUP=system

As for u8110 rom, the version in this thread is pretty intact though shrunk a bit. OK, here is the boot.

we're getting closer...

cm6.1 (init.qcom.rc):

symlink /data/misc/wifi/wpa_supplicant /data/system/wpa_supplicant

couldn't we (at least while testing...) just make the same symlink?

cm6 libhardware_legacy.so is built from source. Since I have a cm6 build environment ready, I should be able to compile a libhardware_legacy.so variant with different strings... after discovering how and where they get generated of course. Maybe they're hardcoded, then it would be easy... anyways, it can't be really hard to figure it out.

But if it's only that filepath, why not just trying symlinks first?

I did:

- exchange libhardware_legacy.so

- exchange wpa_supplicant

- edit init.rc in ramdisk in a way like in posted link

result:

E/WifiHW ( 1268): Unable to open connection to supplicant on "eth0": No such file or directory

I/wpa_supplicant( 2092): CTRL-EVENT-STATE-CHANGE id=-1 state=0

E/wpa_supplicant( 2092): Failed to disable WPA in the driver.

E/WifiHW ( 1268): Supplicant not running, cannot connect

E/WifiHW ( 1268): Supplicant not running, cannot connect

E/WifiHW ( 1268): Supplicant not running, cannot connect

maybe the symlink stuff is the only thing that was still missing in above configuration. Unfortunately I've already wiped that rom and didn't keep a backup. I'll try again tomorrow...

symlinked as:

cd /data/system/

ln -s /data/misc/wpa_supplicant wpa_supplicant
i run stock wpa_supplicant from u8150 and it doesn't complaint on anything
/system/bin/wpa_supplicant -Dwext -ieth0 -W -c/data/misc/wifi/wpa_supplicant.conf
, while the one from cm6.1 could not open control sockets due to some missing permissions...wondering is it hardcoded to do that on /data/misc/wifi/wpa_supplicant directory instead of /data/misc/wpa_supplicant ?.. EDIT: this is what cm6.1 supplicant says if replaced:
# /system/bin/wpa_supplicant -Dawext -ieth0 -W -c/data/misc/wifi/wpa_supplicant.conf

chown[ctrl_interface]: Operation not permitted
loaded ar6000 manually EDIT2: logcat confirms:
E/WifiHW  ( 1302): Unable to open connection to supplicant on "/data/system/wpa_supplicant/eth0": Connection refused

I/wpa_supplicant( 1653): CTRL-EVENT-STATE-CHANGE id=-1 state=0

E/wpa_supplicant( 1653): Failed to disable WPA in the driver.

E/WifiHW  ( 1302): Supplicant not running, cannot connect

or driver - ar6000 - should be loaded in some special mode?.. I noticed when it's loaded by android, it does not expose wireless extensions at all, bit if manually - does...

1. Updated u8150 reference rom on the first post with:

- working USB tethering

- sound fix

- display density fix

- latest kernel (git commit: e428313be70cb168dcbe9f03ce0d36221218a19d)

2. Many changes in froyo-huawei kernel branch with regard to USB. Now it changes pid (as seen by connected PC) as modes are switching in UI: normal, mass storage, usb tethering. Identity now is Huawei, not Qualcomm. But part of pid is different because newer usb subsystem is used. Pids are the same as on Ideos, Ideos X3.

If I turn on USB tethering, my Linux laptop recognizes network connection and switches to it. I can ping the phone. (Obviously no Internet, as no radio yet)

Once again, my adb stopped working (ubuntu 10.04). I didn't download any sdk for getting adb, I just used one I found on the net. Could you upload your adb binary? Replacing the binary did the trick last time. I run adb with sudo for the 1st time per session, so it's not a permission problem.

I don't know if this has anything to do with it, but.....

Back when we were cooking 2.1 roms with the dsixda kitchen, we would have to go in and manually delete the /system/etc/wifi file, create a /system/etc/wifi folder, and then copy wpa_supplicant.conf into the new /system/etc/wifi/ folder. If we didn't do that, wifi wouldn't work.

About wifi i do not know if this is of interest but if you compare the file where wifi saves networks you'll see that they are stored in different ways.

i've compared the CM7.2 file with the FLB1.7 and there are 2 lines missing for each saved network. Also if you replace the file from flb to cm7.2 it want detect any network. no compatibility between files.

I observed this when tried to recover my wifi networks from a backup with Titanium backup.

didn't work for me....?

lsusb says

(usb storage on) Bus 001 Device 021: ID 12d1:1005 Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd

is this the same as with your device?

(usb tetheting on) Bus 001 Device 100: ID 12d1:1039 Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd.

adb is available only in normal mode.

EDIT:

it's pretty weird why cd rom only mode is used as normal for you... While mine normal mode is a proper one.

when turning on tethering, it switches to ID 12d1:1039 like yours, also linux recognizes usb0 network interface. All fine.

Just normal mode differs....

Maybe a different HW revision * that makes kernel .32 decide it has some other mode? With older kernels (all v32 before tethering) adb was working fine on linux. Now it suddenly decides to have a different pid? might also happen with other phones, not just mine?

* we for sure have different HW, since camera sensor differs. Maybe other minor things also differ...

well because I've finally ported usb auto-pid system from Huawei. This is what Android expects in fact. At least the android compiled by Huawei. It also helps to recognize usb mode on PC. For example my Ubuntu did not recognize usb-tethering before that change.

What's you particular model of phone? 8230? 8220-6?

Simple U8220, no -6 and no 8230 (would like to have that much ram though)

auto pid is ok, I didn't want to complain about that in general, just about my phone changing to pid different than yours.

OK, and the dmesg if possible as in my post above.

I should start adding Terminal Emulator to rom :) :)

Looking at auto-pid code, very interesting stuff :)
