i am trying to port a kernel for my device,a tecno q1,from a kernel for the micromax a110,with the same chipset,mediatek mt6577.the problems i am facing is the lack of kernel sources for my device, and plain-old inexperience on my part.here is the thread of the kernel i want to port from xda
it has jb and ics support and a beta kitkat build.link to the source code is at the end of the first post.it also has overclock and zram support,and the kernel will be useful,since i can't port any jb rom to my phone without a compatible kernel.
Also i want to upgrade the cwm recovery on my device from 220.127.116.11 to the latest,possibly 18.104.22.168 or 22.214.171.124.i need a stock recovery.img for this,but i can't dump it from my device as the cwm has been installed.sources for building or porting cwn 126.96.36.199 with touch for medatek devices can be found here.
unfortunately ,my phone's resolution isn't listed,but it's reverse 320x480 is there.
for cwm 188.8.131.52,i am thinking of using the online cwm builder, http://builder.clockworkmod.com ,but if i use the recovery.img dumped wih my cwm,it generates a recovery.img with no ramdisk and thus it cant boot.
here are the details of y failed kernel and clockworkmod porting,any help from the devs here is greatly appreciate since i am a noob at this.thank.
it would be nice if a kitkat kernel could built for the device,as i am waiting ktkat to be released on certain mcromax devices with the same chipset as mine so i could port it.
