As always, we could not promise anything, but who had thought a few month ago that CM10.1 (JB4.2.2) would run on RK2918?
Our goal is to get KitKat running on RK2918 up RK3188.

Please look at my previous post.

Perhaps yes, perhaps no.

The answer is no. why? Because we don't have 3.0.36 kernel for kitkat so it won't work. Just waiting for 4.3

Maybe try to port kernel sources code v3.0.36 from rk30board?

Or compile linaro stable kernel for rk29?

If try compile Linaro kernel need to add from rk29 sources:

Folder: arch/arm/mach-rk29

Config: arch/arm/configs/rkXXXX_defconfig

Last line in file: arch/arm/tools/mach-types

Add Partition ARCH_RK29 to arch/arm/Kconfig

Copy file mkkrnlimg to Linaro kernel from  rk29 sources

But, maybe have errors and need help professional user!

My experience does not allow me compile, this is i search in internet.

P.S. Sorry. I'm from Russia.

My english is bad:)

If it would be so simple, believe me, we would have a 3.0.36 kernel already build.

It's not only the mach-rk29 folder. You need drivers for GPU and sources for the external GPU modules.

Unfortunately there are no sources available for this task, as far as I know.

There is a FOSS user-space driver for the Vivante GCxxx series of embedded GPUs

https://github.com/laanwj/etna_viv

Rockchip 2918 has a GC800

Compatibility

etna_pipe

is currently compatible with at least the following GC chips:

  • GC600 (CuBox, GCABI

    dove

    )

  • GC800 (Rockchip, GCABI

    arnova

    )

  • GC860 (GCW Zero, GCABI

    v2

    )

  • GC880 (i.MX6, GCABI imx6 or

    imx6_v4_0_0

    depending on BSP)

  • GC1000

I know the etnaviv project.

Ever tried to build it and integrate it into a kernel instead of the staging/rk29/vivante blobs?
