CyanogenMod 9 for HTC Wildfire S

I’ve got a new gadget, a nice and small Android based smartphone, the HTC Wildfire S (WFS). The week before I got it alquez finished porting CyanogenMod 7 to the wfs. I’ve installed it and started to use it. After some time I was curios how to build the system. I’ve asked alquez how to set it up and I built it from source. Then I got interested in Android 4.0 and looked at CM9. After I managed to build it, it booted with the CM7 kernel and you could get a shell but that was it. So I’ve started to look into the Kernel and read CM9 code. Now after two weeks of work the device shows a UI. The questions if it will work in the end. Most of the stuff is Open Source but you rely on some binary libraries for OpenGL and maybe will not work out in the end. Android 4.0 relies on a lot of features of the 3.0 Kernel, new netfilter modules, updated graphics stuff etc.

If it will not work out in the end, at least I worked on the Kernel 😉
