Everything to build OM2008.8 for gta01 is in the public, in fact I built it
overnight, checked in some changes to org.openmoko.asu.dev to not install
connman and OM2007.2 support to save some more space in the rootfs. I don't
have a gta01 atm (they are quite rare) so I could not test the result...
As it is quite easy to build and provide feedback and no feedback was provided
I assumed there was no interest. One issue is that the "generic" kernel does
not boot on gta01 but it should be easy to resolve for someone with a gta01.
PS: E.g. mickeyl is testing FSO on GTA01 as well, so it remains supported..
