    This Thread is for feedback on A-4 Skyhawk kernel. This is not a "How-To thread", this is for serious testers only. Spamming the thread with irrelevance will most likely get you flamed by someone.

    Kernels are available. Check your local neighborhood beta testing feed.

    When posting problems or bugs please specify kernel name and version.

    This kernel is ever changing and may sometimes not boot.

    Basic guidelines for install:


    • You know how to doctor
    • You have some kind of idea how to do a memboot.
    • You know something about Linux, not necessarily a guru.
    • You can do basic debugging in case of crash or hang.
    • You have a strong command of how to use a webOS device.


    After installing kernel, do a full power off.

    Features in common codebase:

    • 1.4GHz
    • Screenstate
    • Lagfree
    • SIO
    • debugging code left in (on purpose)
    • Numerous patches for performance


    All bug reports should be qualified by running CLI commands to determine it is a kernel problem and not a UI problem. All complaints or crying with no CLI paste will be ignored!


    Recovery: How To Recover - WebOS Internals

    Memboot recovery kernel: XXX

    How to memboot after finding out your device wears pink underwear:

    Put your device into recovery mode.

    Newer versions of the SDK will say "HP webOS" in the directory name instead of "Palm".

    Run novacom:

    Linux:
    Code:
    /opt/Palm/novacom/novacom boot mem:// < uImage
    Windows:

    Code:
    cd \program files\palm\sdk\bin novacom boot mem:// < uImage
    Mac: (Contributed by sd_matto)
    Code:
          
    
    
    1. Install PalmSDK (and novacom drives therein). This will install the necessary novacom binary (under /opt/nova/bin) and add that to your program path
    2. Download the stock kernel (from links above)
    3. Open Terminal window (under /Applications/Utilities)
    4. Type "cd ~/Downloads" (or other path to your downloaded kernel)
    5. Type "novacom boot mem:// < uImage"

    Hello, unixpsycho

    I've memboot-ed to your A4 kernel under webOS 2.2.4 in my Veer. And of cource wifi doesn't work. I know its module dhd.ko must be updated altogether. So where can I git clone or download your modified kernel source tree? Thank you for your efforts. A4 kernel rocks in my device except of the wifi.

    I am currently moving kernel repo, so nothing is current for 2.2.4.

    Either way, you wont be able to build a wifi module as it's proprietary. Other things have to be in place 1st to load the binary-only module.

    What is this "lagfree" kernel I keep hearing about? Can you please explain what the "lagfree" setting does and how it accomplishes this task?

    Thanks

    any progress on 2.2.4? I just picked up my veer and I haven't really seen any homebrew for it.
