This really pisses me off. I feel like this phone is just a cheap rip off of the OV with a keyboard poorly attatched. I reactivated it thinking development was taking off, but obviously not. I think I'll be selling the Slider.

Then you do something. This crap is not easy. And we are very limited to what we can do with little resources. The OV and Slider have a total different build on the inside making hard to find the drivers for it. If it pisses you off so bad then you do something about it

Disclaimer: I am NOT suggesting anyone donate a Slider, merely trying to put things into perspective.

Much of the hardware is actually the same, the only differences I remember were accelerometer (ami306 vs ami304) and there were some issues with wifi but the chipset is the same. The CPU is identical architecture-wise but it's obviously the "turbo" version clocked at 800MHz vs 600.
Bonus: newer version of Android (2.3.4 vs 2.3.3)

Re: ICS for Slider?
So in theory, gingerkernel for thunderc should boot on the gelato, right? Maybe needs a different commandline but that should be all.
Here's my /proc/cmdine. Looks really close to thunderc. Really really close.

Re: ICS for Slider?
On the other hand, it may not boot at all. You should use the Slider version of GingerKernel since it already exists

Take your time, I'd be happier with something that works well rather than a partial working rom. In the meantime I'm gonna stick with my E739 and OV, has anyone tried disabling CPU rendering and enabling GPU instead? I got it working on CM7 and CM9 with a quick and simple edit on both of my devices, and there is a pretty huge difference in performance. I never knew the OV could run so smoothly, and I was pretty content with my E739 but now my mind is blown with the huge increase in speed performance responsiveness and all that good stuff
Why have I not seen any rom built with GPU rendering instead of CPU? I think it should definitely be looked into more, it's worth checking out. I never been more satisfied with any other phones.
