Hi Ya all, FIRST, lets get the facts out in the open so nobody has any expectations there will ever be a TP GO Android project. I personally hope there is one and an Android KK or LP image comes out of it, but based on what has happened thus far, I am not holding my breath.
I didn't just lend JC a GO device, I GAVE JC a TP GO 3g with an Ericsson MBM running Android 2.2.1 or 2.2.3.
JC was able to get webOS running on it, then he also got CM9 loaded on it and he said he managed to get past the touchscreen bug. Stil not working were the RADIO functions (none of them, no wif fi, no 3G HSDPA+, and no BT). OH, AND NO AUDIO. either.
FACT 3: I tried to enlist JNEWBY to assist JC with the RIL.
John really needs a device to work on the radio. Last I heard, We never got one to him.
FACT 4: I donated a sum of money to JC for all his help with the TP and for helping me debrick my TP GO using a modified TPDEBRICK v.001. It was a substantial enough sum that I also hoped it would help spur further development on an Android image for the TP GO although JC made it clear to me that he does not like to accept donations in advance for uncompleted projects.
This all happened during development of the original TP DEBRICK v. 001 for Touchpad wi fi,
At that time, I was working on a bricked TP GO with a sierra MBM. That's why TPDEBRICK 004 somewhat supports the TP GO. It still had the modified components JC and I created to debrick my TP GO using v .001
Despite all of that, and the progress that was made, fact remains JC sullins and John Newby do not have much spare time to work on this project, if ANY at all. And lets face it, our group of TP GO owners is not many. We could all pound on JC and John's doors begging for an android image for the TP GO, and we'd still be far out numbered by all the other folks with other projects wanted standing next to us pounding on their doors.
If John Newby is still willing to tackle the RIL, then there is some hope.
Two things he would need:
1). A touchpad GO with an Ericcson MBM, (and hopefully a Sierra MBM too that he could swap in to the GO so he could make that MBM radio work (LTE).
2). A copy of the CM9 build JC has put together so far, without radio and audio.
Still, crossing my fingers, toes, eyeballs, and balls, hoping we can get an android JB, KK, or LP build for the TP GO. Even just the completion of the ICS version JC started working on would be fine with me.
