Well, where to start? It’s been a little while since I posted here, because of school and things. Anyway:
We have a new team member; JesusFreak316! He has kindly offered his services in shell script writing, and has been added to the Google Code page as a contributor/committer.
Second, the school year has started, as some of you probably already know, so development is slowing down while I deal with my assignments and homework, and with settling into a new school.
Third, to those who wanted to donate, check the OP on the XDA-Devs thread, there is a donate button there.
Fourth, I am starting a Garry’s Mod DarkRP server with my friends, under the banner of Destruction Incorporated. We’re hope to grow into a large gaming community, with a large community base for Team Fortress 2 already setup.
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 1,900 times in 2011. If it were a cable car, it would take about 32 trips to carry that many people.

- Kernel – Compiled (with framebuffer and mouse cursor patches applied, thanks to jcsullins for the patches)
- Initramfs – Done (requires EXT3 partition mounted to /dev/mapper/ext3fs, use instructions for Ubuntu chroot to partition your device)
- System – Not done
- Testing – Not done
Also, I have a twitter account (@Bodman456) that you can follow for more up-to-date info.

I just need to clear some things up here. As of late, I’ve had a LOT of people asking me if they could donate. While I appreciate your enthusiasm, I won’t accept donations for this project until I have a working kernel to show. Last thing anyone wants is a dev to run off with donations without releasing any sort of working code or source code.
Anyway, for those eagerly awaiting the port, I apologise for the delays, but because my final yearly exams are this week, I’m spending most of my afternoons and evenings studying. I will be sneaking in hits of development here and there, but I’m not making any promises. After my exams are over, I will do more work on the port. I am also in the process of packing to move interstate (moving back to Queensland from New South Wales), so in about 3 weeks, development will be coming to a screeching halt for about 2 weeks while I unpack and call Telstra to have them wire in my new cable ‘net connection (100Mbps downloads FTW!).
