So I am after Testers, People who are not afraid to give things ago.
So I am trying at the moment to compile the latest Linux Kernel to run on the Nexus 7. I am currently building the Kernel 3.13rc7. All the Kernels for Android seem to be quite old(ish).
I am creating a ZImage which people can then flash or test and let me know if it works OK.
I will maybe post a guide how to do this and then post it on XDADevelopers.
So is anyone willing? Please Post here and then I will post the zImage when it has finished building.
You need to be familiar with adb commands,rooting,custom ROM's and all that good stuff, For now I will just concentrate on the Kernel. You need to have adb installed. If you havent or dont know what this is then I am afraid this isn't for you.
fastboot boot zImage -- Your phone will automatically reboot
The command above will only temporarily boot the new zImage, meaning you can test and do whatever you want, but after you reboot your phone again — your previous zImage will be reloaded, removing the current one you were testing (Recommended method for testing, until you’re sure you want to permanently flash).
If you all want I will post my guide just like I did with the CPU Optimisations Thread.
I don't think I am registered with XDA Developers so maybe I could collaborate with someone and they could post this zImage on there for me. I think you have to have 10 posts before you can post anything in the right part of the forum.
If by some miracle that it does boot you should see neowin appended in the build string in Android.
