    Can someone post detailed instructions to get this kernel or the new 3.0.101 kernel working properly.

    Does that one commit for VPU still have to be reverted to make the kernel work properly?
    What to do with boot.img, nand*.ko modules?
    Do the new modules need to be insmod in a file in boot.img?
    What to do with system.img, modules?
    Do you need to change the sublevel to 36 instead of 72 or 101 in main makefile for better compatibility?
    What to use for RK3188 TV Box LCD1 or LCD0, dual display, no dual display, one dual display in kernel config?

    I still wondering what the case is.
    Tried to change from lcd0 to lcd1 as some mentioned.. still no succes.

    I wish people could just make this kernel more compatible and update it so everyone can use it instead of the outdated Rockchip kernels.

    Anyone got it working and willing to share their exact steps eg.
    Modifying boot.img files
    Modules required.
    Kernel compile steps required, do you still need to change the build sub in the make file to 36 or should it stay at 72.

    Anyone know how to incorporate the new mt7601 Mediatek wifi drivers into this kernel as it compiles with an error if you choose that wifi.
    Here are the mt7601 wifi patches from Rockchip, but it's to complicated for me to use it.

    Can anyone maybe incorporate those wifi patches into another RK3188 kernel source for me if possible since most RK3188 kernel sources don't have that wifi chip files.
    I have a EKB311B RK3188 TV Box with above wifi that no kernel can work on except stock.

    Doesn't matter what I do, can't get the kernel to boot, only black screen or no signal on screen.
    I see other people have a similar problem.
    Anyone with a RK3066 device that could compile a kernel and actually get it to boot with no problems?
    Any progress on this. I am having the same isues.. kernels do not boot/no signal

    new kernel won't fix that the reason for the wifi/bt not working is probably because we don't have a driver for it

    Any closer to RK3066 Android kernels?

    Here are the GPIO pins to get wifi working for RK903 on Picuntu - https://github.com/aloksinha2001/pic...mment-23483105
    Also to get get wifi working on MK808B Picuntu - https://www.miniand.com/forums/forum...768-resolution

    Android
    Here are the binary Rockchip RK903 wifi drivers - https://github.com/roondar/wiki-rock...ch/android_4.1
    Also interesting - https://github.com/roondar/wiki-rock...ch/android_4.1
    All other wifi drivers - https://github.com/roondar/wiki-rock...e/master/rkftp

    Kernel 3.0.72+ for devices similiar to cloudnetgo cr9 with rtl8188eu wifi

    Hey guys,
    the last days i spent my time with trying to build the 3.0.72+ kernel (thanks omegamoon) for my CloudnetGo CR9 device. But I was not able to boot the kernel.
    At first it tried to build the kernel with omegamoon's buildscript for mk908 device because in this wiki (http://linux-rockchip.info/mw/index....CloudnetGo_CR9) they say the CloudnetGo CR9 device is equivalent to the mk908 stick.

    While building there were no critical errors so I think that the kernel configuration is not right for the cloudnetgo cr9.
    So I tried .config-files from Alok or the one in omegamoons github for other devices. The main problem is that i can't debug the boot process because the tv screen stays black and nothing happens after powering on the device after a successful flash.

    So I tried to play around with different initramfs. But I think the problem is in the kernel because when I switch to Alok's precompiled Picuntu 4.5 NAND-Kernel everything boots up fine.

    I am a very beginner in building kernels so I thought you could give me some hints for debugging the kernel or maybe you have an idea where the configuration must be diffrent for every diffrent device.

    Thanks in advance and keep up your good work

    Haven't tried yet. I've tested with Ubuntu this time, not Android, and used an ethernet dongle for internet connectivity. Need some more time to get wifi+bt working
