I haven't sent many messages to the list and none have bounced. So I wonder
why I got this nasty bit today morning? ( And I have checked, there haven't
been any worms sending out mails from my machine )

Got a Tablet that runs Android (Kernel 188.8.131.52 on ARM Cortex A9). Was
pleasantly surprised to see that I can apply Linux knowledge for
Working on these two hobby projects:
1. Enabling Bluetooth DUN
2. Enabling 3G USB sticks
Primarily, this would involve
1. Modifying Kernel modules (E.g. usb_modswitch) to work on ARM and to
work without glibc.
2. Shell scripts for loading modules + setting up networking (E.g.
ppp) via userland tools.
On Android, we have:
1. Code that already works on other Linux systems
2. Easy to use dev environment and build/debug tools
3. Linux userland tools (via BusyBox)
Please let me know if you want to collaborate or help. All work would
be maintianed as open source on some repository like Github /
Sourceforge / Google Code.
On Ubuntu 10.10, Reliance Netconnect, Broadband+ works out of box,
with following one issue:
It takes long time (2 to 4 minutes), to appear in Network Manager.
What could be the issue, and can we do something (to issue some
command, run script, or setting) to make it appear in less time (say

This is my script, Reliance.dia:
user 93******** \
password 93******** \
connect '/system/bin/chat -v -f /system/etc/ppp/Reliance.conf'
I don't know if it works, as my kernel still lacks ppp support. Why did you
need usb_wlan and tun?
This is the conf script that I'm really doubtful about:
ABORT 'NO DIALTONE'
ABORT 'NO CARRIER'
I don't remember what I did with the APN requirement.

Most of you must be aware of the Indian tech startup Notion Ink, which has
released its much-awaited nVIDIA Tegra 2 based tablet, Adam, which runs on
Android 2.2. You must also be aware that Google has not released the source
code of Honeycomb (Android 3.0), claiming that much work needs to be done,
but some large hardware manufacturers like Motorola, Acer, Asus etc. already
have access, and have released their Honeycomb tablets based on nVIDIA Tegra
2 to a great public reception.
The Adam tablet is technically as capable as the rest of the Tegra 2
devices, but it suffers from lack of access to the latest operating system.
On the other hand, Notion Ink has been supportive of efforts by hackers to
improve upon the device software, which has given us various alternative
ROMs, root access, etc.
As of now, the community of hackers organised around the forum at
http://tabletroms.com is focusing its effort on porting Honeycomb to the
Adam and other 'left out' tablets.
This work is being done by tweaking the system dumps obtained out of the
existing Honeycomb tablets, and so far, there has been substantial progress
in getting it to run on the Adam.
As you may read on the thread above, there is still lots of work to be done
to have a stable system, and much of this concerns the kernel.
The community is running short of experienced hands at kernel development,
and would like to solicit your help in the kernel development effort. If
you are an experienced kernel developer with interest in Android or embedded
systems, you could be an ideal candidate. In fact, the community has
chipped in to create a bounty for a fully working instance of Honeycomb,
with amounts set aside for different aspects of the OS.
We know that the chief motivators for open source contributors are
knowledge, community building and recognition, not money. However, it
always helps to show our gratitude for your contribution, apart from
actually using it. Many members have also demonstrated good spirit by
sending donations to student developers and others that have been helping
maintain the forum and development out of their own pockets.
If any of you feel that the likely end results are worth the effort, please
feel free to visit the forum or IRC at
ps: If you are interested in the device itself, some owners are willing to
sell their tablets as they have access to other alternative models.
