    Dual boot will be a possibility once we have all the needed resources...but why would you do this? You can already do this using Nandroid backups.

    I cant use Terminal anymore, it says "localhost / $" before now, where its usually just a $. It works fine when I run my backup of the original 2.1, its only in this ROM. Can you please fix this? Im going to install Ubuntu and want to post the results here.

    Hey L_N... are you considering pulling something like this off for the next generation of tablets that Coby will be releasing in the next few months? I would donate a few bucks if you released a ROM for one of them... specifically the MID1025. Thanks for considering.

    Only if I get my hands on one. They have a different chipset than the first gen devices which makes any android builds incompatible between them.

    Are there siginificant differences to modding the tablet vs. modding android handsets? I have an HTC Hero that I have done extensive mods to, and now I'm running a custom AOSP rom with Gingerbread on it. If the processes are similar via adb and android-sdk tools, .apk files, etc... I think I may be able to at least come up with some mods for it after rooting. It won't be the scale you've accomplished here with a full custom rom, but it might be a little better than stock. I can't friggin' wait to get mine so I can hack it to pieces! :)

    Same process, but the kernel and boot.img seem to be untouchable for now. We needed the source that coby is sitting on...

    To those having issues: I'm trying my best to get some time to work on this. Unfortunately, I've had a few other obligations to take care of first. Please know that I am one person working on this in my spare time, which does occasionally become scarce. I do read all of these posts (and PM's), and will try to get everything addressed in time. Thanks for all the kind words and encouragement. And to those who have mentioned donating again, go donate to koush, p3droid, team blackhat, etc. there are plenty of people at xda-developers that deserve it more than I do. I've simply implemented their ideas/work on the kyros.

    The colors mean you are running a version of watery with bash instead of the stock shell.

    That's going to be fixed soon, hopefully. It turns out that jit is a bit more unstable than I originally thought. I just don't have enough time to get any work done on this.

    Just want to say thanks for all your work on this. After reading the posts I decided to try 1.1 and it's working great. No problems installing and I haven't had any issues with my apps. Speed is definitely improved.
