If someone could port a rom or edit a current rom to include the 5.0 kernel, it is possible.

What 5.0 kernel? There is no rockchip sdk for 5.0 in RK3188, just kitkat sdk, so even porting a lollipop it's quite nonsense because you would need to include kitkat or JB stuff in it, so no true Lollipop at all.

Anyhow, source code was released, which is something alllll people in this subforum was asking, so I am sure los of people will make kernels and other stuff, because there were so many people looking for the source that seemed there were lots of devs waiting.,...

Hi, skelton.

The guys from the Crew are building their roms specifically for JB kernels without selinux. Earlier I assumed that the kernel must be updated to KK to work with omni rom properly, but I was wrong due to the reason mentioned above.

I tried Lollipop test build on 7800 and it works with ART fully functional, but obviously has some problems.

You're right about devs - there are none.

Yep, as I say. 5.0 in RK3188 is possible, but using the same kernel as JB, the same Rockchip libraries (mali, gralloc, hwcomposer, etc), so for me this is not true Lollipop, so to speak, except the UI, because kernel is clearly outdated (it's a bit outdated even in kitkat)  Unless rockchip update their SDK to 5.0 in RK3188, 5.0 is just a ROM with JB or kitkat stuff. And at the moment rockchip SDK is 5.0 only for rk3288 (and still beta), for rk3188 is just 4.4.4

But why there is none good 4.4 roms for JXD?

You have omni rom and cyanogen 11. The rest just depend on JXD or devs that work with 7800, which is not my case.

the s7800 community could only benefit from a go getting hacker of frimwares like yourself skelton, does it dis-interest you working on this? if so, why?

dont mean to come across as rude, im just quizzical :)

I only work in devices I own, and I don't have a 7800. I have had enough work with GPD devices, which are more developer friendly.

Have you got a guide in English to install the ROM. :)
