    I'm not much further. I took some time to actually use my tablet to read a book this weekend, so i haven't worked on the sources much in the past few days.

    The kernel is 2.6.29, and I'm applying the changes from the telechips source to 2.6.35. That file appears to be from 2.6.28.

    I found this:
    DealExtreme: $5.71 SD to MicroSD/TransFlash Card Converter Module
    SD to micro sd converter. Could be useful.

    No worries. Goto Watery runnin right now in fact. Lovin it. Loads better than stock.
    Let us know if there's anything we can do to help the kernel patching effort.

    Sorry, I work 14 days and off 14, just got back but do a Google search for "Froyo Kernel for Coby Kyros" and it should be the first 2 hits that come up. It's just like installing a backup ROM. No O/C kernel yet though.

    Hello,

    I have been working with the X5A-G Telechips model for a few months now and will now be switching over to the 7015. I am new to this forum but use the same name on XDA as well as Slatedroid. Not sure where you are on this but congratts on trying! I spent a good two weeks trying to get the crap Telechips released back in December to compile, it is complete rubish. The two devices seem very similiar so far but without a kernel I seem to be stuck just modding what we currently have. If you would like to share what you have so far just drop me a note, if not I will just keep an eye on your thread.

    Cheers

    Hello, I don't think you need to risk your device by flashing anything to NAND. You can use mkbootimg to build the boot image with new kernel and ramdisk, and then boot it with "fastboot boot boot.img" command. At least I can boot clockwork recovery images and enter "adb shell" without flashing the image into the tablet. The kernel supplied with the tablet and with clockwork recovery ramdisk works well: I could walk on clockwork recovery menu, do some tests, but I did not try to flash or wipe anything.

    Do you have already running kernel? I could compile the 2.6.29 kernel from Telechips, build the boot image with clockwork recovery ramdisk, but when I try to boot this new image, the strange thing happens...

    If I enter to fastboot mode from power off state by pressing "Back" and "Power" buttons, the kernel loads, Linux logo appears on the screen and in a few seconds the tablet turns off (kernel crash?).

    In contrast, if I enter fastboot mode when tablet is already ON by pressing "Back" and "Reset" buttons, the kernel boots and even runs init, starts adbd and recovery utlity from ramdisk. I could even use adb to get logs from dmesg and dump some /proc/* stuff to get the configurartion to compare it with one from working kernel. Nevertheless, the tablet turns of in a few minutes (another kernel crash?).

    Have you tried to build 2.6.29 kernel? Does it work?

    It's known not to work. I've shelved this project for now.. I'll try to upload my diff and edited sources for someone else to mess with later.
