Okay, i've a little think about it, and i'm not shure of the structure of kernel/driver

driver are into the kernel, but the kernel is compiled, so whe cant just get it from the stock kernel of maemo, right?
so why we dont take driver into the kernel power to port it on android?

(dont hurt me! =p)

edit:
maybe it can help http://elinux.org/N900

Hi.
//If language error will present, sorry. Not English speaker.

I have some problem.
When I'm starting my n900 with opend keyboard u-boot is loading default maemo kernel (maemo just starting), and says something about "unable to read "bootmenu.src" blah-blah"
Please help me. I have no enought ideas how to solwe this trouble.
I tryed to copy boot.src to bootmenu.src, but isnt work.
I tryed to change text in bootmenu.src: delete some unreadable chars in UTF-8.

/dev/mmcblk1p1 formated as msdos partition (used mkfs.msdos /dev/mmcblk1p1 as root).
/dev/mmcblk1p2 formated as ext3 using mkfs.ext3 /dev/mmcblk1p2 and data at partition modified as TS sayd in his howto.

Thnks for reading, sorry about language errors. I hope, you'll help me about u-boot.

update:
googling failed

update:
also tryed vfat partition at mmcblk1p1 (using mkfs.vfat /dev/mmcblk1p1)

update:
And power51 kernel is not loading. U-boot loads omap1 kernel.
Also, if it help, when starting, u-boot ignoring any keys I pressed.

update:
"unable to read "bootmenu.src" issue solwed by u-boot-update-bootmenu
But u-boot still loading omap1.
Now it writes "Reading bootmenu.src" and loading omap1.
jeratul, try to run u-boot-update-bootmenu with root access. Maybe it will help.

can somebody pls insert stk.apk (sim toolkit) in the next update release?
Perhaps mobile banking in N900 can be done through NITdroid, hence
sms function is working well (i've tried several times inserting it in
system/app w/o luck showing in the drawer, installing too likewise)

STK functionality is *NOT* implemented in RIL. So, even if this apk is present, you can't see it in launcher, because it is useless any way.

So after several months without an n900, my brother gave me his n900 for a day and I managed to accelerate it with the 2.6.28 kernel (did some tricks to the DDK scripts). It is now really fluent - will upload a video these days (i will first try manual syncing which is commented out in the ddk)
EDIT: i had to add vram=32M omapfb.vram=0:16M ot the bootargs
EDIT 2:  here are the files installed by the ddk + a git diff

In regards to phone calls not working. These guys who are porting Arch Linux to the N900 have had some luck, Maybe there is information there that could be used to get phone calls working in NITDroid. Here is the link
