Cool Android 2.3 Gingerbread for the T1 - let's cook a custom ROM

Hi folks,

look what I've got:
Code:
g:\=PRST1\freescale\android r10.3\image_imx-android-r10.3_50rdp-eink\NFS
g:\=PRST1\freescale\android r10.3\image_imx-android-r10.3_50rdp-eink\SD
g:\=PRST1\freescale\android r10.3\image_imx-android-r10.3_50rdp-eink\u-boot-no-padding.bin
g:\=PRST1\freescale\android r10.3\image_imx-android-r10.3_50rdp-eink\u-boot.bin
g:\=PRST1\freescale\android r10.3\image_imx-android-r10.3_50rdp-eink\uImage
g:\=PRST1\freescale\android r10.3\image_imx-android-r10.3_50rdp-eink\NFS\android_fs.tar.gz
g:\=PRST1\freescale\android r10.3\image_imx-android-r10.3_50rdp-eink\SD\recovery.img
g:\=PRST1\freescale\android r10.3\image_imx-android-r10.3_50rdp-eink\SD\system.img
g:\=PRST1\freescale\android r10.3\image_imx-android-r10.3_50rdp-eink\SD\uramdisk.img
If anyone wants to get that - have a look at Freescale's offers for the iMX508 platform used in the T1:

Please, read this... Boroda/porkupan has found your discovery very interesting, and ask us if we have figured out how to set the board to bootstrap mode

OK, just to clarify - I modded the sd recovery image from porkupan to make it flash my resized data & sys partition. That's all...

But I wonder what happens if you take Gingerbread apks from Freescale and put them into /system/app

I don't understand what you mean... I think there is no need to modify porkupan's recovery to overwrite any partition (extended or not)...

I mean, I've extended my system partition by using the gadget serial into recovery mode without any problem...

What are the modifications that you are speaking about?

Have you found the Android image to boot from Micro-SD card that you said here?

There, you have said:
"But: it seems that you can boot a completly working Android image from SD Card!"

Do you remember what did you wanted to say? I would like to continue your investigation

The point is - I altered the partition table and then had to reboot the kernel for it did not see the changes. After reboot, I did not manage to get into recovery mode again, so I did it the hard way via sd recovery.

The micro sd image I am using all the time is sdcard-rescue.zip

That image can be loop-mounted and altered the way you want it. It should be possible to make it boot Android 2.3 by changing /alterning the appropriate files...

This is what I wanted to say


Another thing is - the freescale package contains Gingerbread.apks and I wonder if one can cook a Gingerbread system image out of a regular system image plus these new files...
