Hi all,
we have now set up our own variant for the GTA04 which is based on
our 3.12 kernel. There is a branch (replicant4) of the kernel sources which
has some different config and patches for e.g. the adb gadget driver.
And, we have built a single-partition image so that an SD card can be more
easily booted using the existing boot loader in NAND flash and can even
be swapped between different device variants.

The project is here:

PS: I am compiling this on a Darwin 10.8 (= OSX 10.6.8) based host which
needs some minor tweaks and tricks to work around gcc and include path
incompatibilities but does not need to touch the sources. If anyone is
interested, there is a 'mrep' script mentioned on the project page.

PPS: compiling a 3.12 kernel needs a more modern ARM cross-toolchain
than the one provided by Replicant 4.0, but that can easily be supplied to
the make command.
