General :: Xperia Arc S Won't Boot Up After Installing Kernel
Dec 1, 2013
my device : xperia arc s
im new in android and a couple hours ago i try to instal beanstalk - legacy kitkat 4.4 and they suggest to download kernel from dark raven "dark kernel cm11.0" 11DarkUrushi20131130 after that im flash the kernel and something happen....
my phone dont boot up and the logo dont appear
im try to connect to flash tool but still dont get it...
I have a stock N1 with terrible battery life. I have stumbled intersectRaven's mod/Kernel at: [URL] .....
I would like to ask how I can install this on my N1, is it just a matter of downloading the right file, renaming it to update.zip and then doing what I've done to update my phone as with official updates?
What do I need to pay attention to and is there a way to revert back to the original rom/Kernel if I'm having issues with this mod or if I want to sell my phone?
I am trying to use my cheap virtually unbrickable tablet to learn more about kernel development and eventually ROM building.
I have extracted the manufacturers (WoPad) LiveSuit image and used split_bootimg.pl to break up the boot image.
I extracted the config file from the kernel image using extract-ikconfig and it created a config file. I didn't see the config in /proc.
So, I have the factory ramdisk and the factory kernel config.
I have downloaded several kernel sources (lichee-3.0.8, ChritianTroy's 3.0.36, and another one from linux-sunxi 3.0.72). I can successfully compile all of them without errors and they all generate zImages, uImages, etc using the factory config as well as the sun4i_crane configs they come with.
When I repack the boot.img with the newly created kernel and install it on nandc it wont' boot past the android icon (u-boot). When I compare my boot.img to the factory one, they both have the same offset where the kernel starts (0x00000800). I have also ensured I'm replacing the kernel modules when I'm changing kernel versions.
I am thinking it might had hit "un-allocated" memory area, I did have to change the ramdisk_offset from 0x01300000 to 0x02000000 make the kernel fit. what could I do to check to see if it is un-allocated space I am dealing with
Anyone ever had this happen? Downloaded an update after the 2.1 upgrade and I sync'd my contacts with FB. It then deleted all of my contacts.So I deleted Facebook, re-stored all my contacts and reloaded Facebook. However, now it gets as far as installing and it never stops. It just stays on Installing.However, the FB app works fine on the phone itself.Is this a Market glitch? Is there anyway I can purge it from out of my downloads section?
I wanted to change the boot logo for i9300. Im well aware that you have to incorporate it in the kernel. I installed Ubuntu, the necessary libraries and brought the cyanogenmod source code. Only part is I dont have the necessary experience to tweak it using the NDK tools
This problem began when I reinstalled Swapper 2 last night though I do not think it caused the problem. This was the latest app I installed on my phone.
After I installed this app, changed the settings and set the swapper file size to 256mb and power cycled the device the device wont boot at all.
It would give this vibration, and then nothing. Not even the back light of the display turned on. It tried to open CWM thought the power button and volume down keys but still the result was same as before. I don't know where to start. I am having real trouble in diagonalizing the problem.

After installing the USBWOOT.zip by using TWRP, i hit the reboot system, but my kindlefire can not boot with newly installed android os. my kindlefire continue to get in TWRP again and again. I checked boot file on my kindlefire by using android-sdk-linux, but there is nothing in it.
How can i boot my kindlefire again? I think that installing icecream sandwitch is the last resort to use my kindlefire, because amazon does not offer os recover instractions and files.
i just bought a tuvva powerplay tablet..aka the game mid....it contains a rockchip 3066 cpu and 4 core gpu 400 ok iv been trying to flash custom roms on this for awhile..i never could..i got it rooted though..well then i heard of this thing called chainfire 3d thats supposed to improve fps...well i installed that tablet turned off...then it booted up with the logo..thats it..nothing more..i can enter the stock recovry..and my computers makes a bumpuda sound like its conntect..all i want to do is delete the dang chainfire thing..but i dont know how..iv tried using adp..
I did a research regarding Flashing Kernels and Roms and currently i have installed Cyanogen 9.1 for my device.
1.Will I be able to update my phone and bring back to old ICS firmware via SUS once i brick my phone(I have already unlocked the bootloader via fastboot method)?
2.Evrytime when i flash the Rom(say CM9) i used to flash kernal(boot.img) for the respective rom.Is this necessary all the time? Will i able to flash a GB rom on ICS kernal(I am afraid to give it a test)?
3.Regarding CM9.1 which i have installed ryt now,I am satisfied with the performance,but i want a stable ROM wud make me happy with a better battery life unlike CM9.1. Any GB/ICS ROM which wud have a stable performance with descent battery life.
4.After using GB for a long time,i was very much addicted with the Phone pad kinda keyboard,but when ICS came into picture everything vanished,Smartkeyboard Pro is no gud,Touchpal is conjusted,i want the exact GB keyboard in ICS.

Up til now I've only loaded Fab's themed ROMs that have the kernels baked in. I'm getting ready to try Bugless Beast .8 with a smoked glass theme and AdamZ Kernel. Both the theme and ROM are .zip files. The Kernel is a .img. Do they all flash thru clockwork the same as one of Fab's ROMs? Do I need to do anything with that kernel.img file (rename, unpack, whatever)? Of course, beforehand I'll do a full format of boot, sys, cache, and, data...
I have a phone with a MT6577. The vendor (Wiko) published the kernel source code. So, i'm trying to build it. I can get the zImage. I converted it to boot.img but i can't boot with it on my phone.build a good zImage? (if you want to try) : URL...
cp mediatek-configs .config TARGET_PRODUCT=s9081 MTK_ROOT_CUSTOM=../mediatek/custom make # sudo mtk-tools/repack-MT65xx.pl -boot zImage boot.img-ramdisk boot.img MTK-Tools by Bruno MartinsMT65xx repack script (last update: 27-01-2013) Repacking boot image...

Here are the Warnings I got when compiling

I am running Bugles Beast v0.9 (although when I go into Phone Info it says "Build number Bugles Beast 1.2"). Anyway, I downloaded the Chevy 5 slot 1GHz kernel and named it update.zip and when I install it says it's installing fine but when I go to reboot my phone freezes up at the Motorola screen. I have even tried changing to frequencies supported by the kernel (250, 550) but it still won't work...keeps freezing.
I was just listening to some music and browsing FaceBook when my Xperia PLAY phone suddenly shut off last night I tried everything to make it start again, but nothing happends! I tried simply booting it up, removing the battery, tried Sony PC Companion and I even tried to flash it with FlashTool, but not even that would recognice it When I connect it to my PC while holding the BACK button, the phone actually shows up on my PC, but I still can't get it to work Ill try flashing it with FlashTool again, since I'm on a different PC now, but I think I'm going to have som trouble finding the drivers for QHUSB_LOAD
I'm usin sony xperia tipo dual st21i2. Two days back I have rooted my mobile using unlockroot. Yesterday i was trying to install custom ROM, for that i booted my mobile in recovery mode using install.bat. In recovery mode took back up and wiped data and cache then installed the zip file(ST21i JBMP5.zip) from SD card and rebooted. Now the mobile got stuck with the screen showing JB MINIPROJECT and a circle was revolving in anticlockwise around the number 10. I pulled the battery and tried to boot in recovery mode but no use. whatever i do the mobile stuck with the same screen.
