The long way to port the Samsung I7500 Galaxy kernel from 2.6.27 to the latest N1 kernel

Thursday, February 4th, 2010

The standard Galaxy kernel based on a very old 2.6.27 version and their are lot of changes after this kernel. So i planed to upgrade the kernel to the version which used the N1 Google phone. I prefer to start from the Samsung update3, because it is the latest and i hope the wlan driver has the needed fixes.

I created a diff between the andoid-msm-2.6.27 and update3. The diff-file is 9mb big and shows that 800 files are different.

These subprojects must be ported to the new 2.6.29 kernel, also many other files:
