Last week, I played around with getting a custom recovery built for INQ Cloud Touch..
After compiling - flashing recompiling re-flashing for almost a week and on the verge of giving up ...
I realized, searched and found flash_image ... come to find out custom compile of recovery was fine, fastboot did not like my device and wasn't flashing it properly.
So flash_image got the custom recovery working as suppose to, able to backup/restore ... Flash roms.. however there are no roms.. best i could do was try roms from devices close to this one, with no luck!
So i decided i would try my hand at making a 2.3.7 gingerbread rom. Of course stock is froyo 2.2.1 and before i can make the rom.. i need a kernel for gingerbread. So I got the cm-kernel source using this guide:
pulled my .config file using both
and the included script to pull it from the boot.img
Now, i been trying to get kernel compiled for the last 5 days.. and like i said, no lack of searching and reading... Had first error, forgot what it was now, but i got it fixed and compile went on.

I have a notepad full of things i have enabled/disabled and restored to original trying to find what is missing or shouldn't be there!
I just went through the process of compiling a custom ROM and they used a stock kernel. I would like to incorporate a different kernel when I compile and instead of the stock. I know I could compile them separately and have them flash together but I want one zip to flash. Just would like to go through the process to learn.

I am needing to make a kernel for a certain device. There aren't any source codes available for that device but there are for multiple clones out there. I am running Linux Mint Debian edition and i cant find a guide for compiling a kernel on debian.
I'm trying to compile kernel for A10 Aurora i have a couple of questions.I'm using this guide for make a custom kernel.Compiled allwinner-v3.0-android-v2.Btw my laptop is running ubuntu 32 bit 2 cores 30gb hdd on VMware workstation.
I made zImage, uImage and modules without getting any errors but how to flash them to the device?Using adb? making boot.img making cwm zip how to pack them?
Code: OBJCOPY arch/arm/boot/Image Kernel: arch/arm/boot/Image is ready[code]....
I am trying to compile a kernel for LGE-P690 from CM ICS source but i don't have the device in my hand i searched all over the net for vendor files but i was unsuccessful in finding vendor files for ics but i found one for gingerbread so is there anyway i could perform ./extract-files.sh without device or can i convert gingerbread vendor files to ics if so how elaborate.
I am on CM "jellybean" branch and want compile iw from source in order to get a p2p0 interface. My goal is use precompiled libnl.so provided by my vendor (Sony). I add iw sorces in external/iw directory and modified Android.mk of external/libnl-header in order to create the module "libnl" necessary for compile iw. All changes are in this commit.
When I compile I obtain this
external/iw/iw.h:5:29: fatal error: netlink/netlink.h: No such file or directory
It look like the libnl module is not imported by iw.
I was being decompiling my settings.apk And after compiling i was edit XML Files there And after editing i compile it And theres a error that it said go to option 21 to take a log but its only a compression level for apks i think its should 24. I was only creating a rom but this only compiling made the day long to post it here
Has anyone successfully compiled the android kernel and tested it in the Android emulator, and if so is there anything that special that needs to be done? Documentation for the SDK is excellent, however documentation for compiling the kernel and setting up a custom machine in the emulator has been hard for me to find.
I'm trying to make a custom kernel for the Samsung Gravity SMART using sources from the unofficial CM9 port for the Gio/Ace (which both use very similar hardware to the Gravity Smart). What I've succeeded at so far:
1) Acquiring the source, both for the CM9 kernel and for the stock Froyo kernel 2) Searching for the device-dependent references in the stock kernel 3) Porting those changes over to the CM9 kernel 4) Getting everything to actually compile 5) Acquiring the stock CM7.2 source 6) Creating device makefiles (i.e. BoardConfig.mk, etc) 7) Building CM7.2 using kernel built in step #4 8) Putting the various img files into an Odin-compatible .tar.md5 9) Actually flashing to the phone.
And for all that work, I got.. a soft-bricked phone (fortunately, I have an Odin file for stock firmware). The phone boots to a SAMSUNG logo (not flashing/throbbing). how the heck do I figure out what's actually failing? Is there a bootloader to unlock, and if so how do I unlock it?
So I've been looking into flashing custom kernels, and I can't seem to find an answer to this question. Basically, I'm wondering if the kernel remains after installing a new nightly, or do I have to reflash the kernel every time the ROM updates?
I'm new to both xda and android rooting. I just want to know what's the different between Kernel and ROM? Do you need to flash to the latest Kernel to increase stability while running a certain custom ROM? I'm just a bit confused between these two and what their function

I have an xperia X8 with some naa kernel and xperiadroidx 6.1.The thing is that with this custom kernel and ROM when i put a SIM from another network carrier, the question asking for the SIM-unlock code input is not showing up. (this appeared before when phone was in stock state).Is it possible to do it without re-flashing to stock?
...or i have to put back the phone to stock? What is the easiest/safest/best way to do this? using the restore option in "PC companion" SE app? Is it only needed to put the stock kernel and ROM, or Do i also need to re-lock the bootloader?
I don't need the whole explanation, just a little guidance, just a few tips to know what to do, then i can google/search myself for the specifics on how to actually do it.
I have samsung galaxy pocket duos gt s5302..I have rooted it and flashed CWM recovery then I tried to flash custom compact kernel made by Deadly. After I flashed through CWM my phone got hard bricked It wont turn on What should I do?
