    ok no wifi or adb access. But it's a start!

    I'm going to see what I can do to get this working.

    Thanks heaps =)

    I built a froyo cm6 build. I repackaged and edited the boot.img this through it into a boot loop at the ideos logo ;( but using the gingerbread boot.img i get as far as the cm boot animation. Can you tell me how you are rebuilding the boot image and the cmd line your using? How wrong is this? cmdline 'mem=211M console=ttyMSM2,115200n8 androidboot.hardware=qcom console=ttyUSBCONSOLE0 androidboot.console=ttyUSBCONSOLE0'

    i think you need this CONFIG_PHYS_OFFSET=0x20000000 too without it it wont boot
    thats on the .config file or

    BOARD_KERNEL_BASE := 0x20000000
    on your CM boardConfig file

    hope that helped ;)

    Update on new kernel.

    It appears we might be able to do some very sexy experimentation.
    2.6.37 introduced a new broadcom driver (harder better faster stronger, then the original :p).
    As my development kernel is .38, This is included.
    I have reached a point of building a kernel so far.
    Rictec has access to my git repo.
    So once this is stable, we can have a kickass new kernel with a sexy CM7 userspace.

    For anyone wanting to know more on the broadcom module, its BRCM80211 (brcmfmac is the module written specificially for the 4329 chipset (i.e. exactly what runs in our tablet)).
    I've been fixing some mistakes in the aurora kernel git, some of my early changes werent imported with the original git repo. so they are untracked, but all the latest changes are being done on the new git repo.

    so the first part of that is normal mine says the same like sd-ext.img not found
    the second part you must restore from a backup it looks like you never do restore and it goes to what he still has thats recovery

    If you have a micro-sd card inserted remove it before booting into recovery. If there is an micro-sd inserted it screws up the way recovery mounts the internal memory.
