I'm still struggling with the newest kernels >= 2.6.28. I tried SHR ,
OM2009 (latest) and Android . All have a kernel >= 2.6.28. But
only the kernel of Android works! So I downloaded the latest
Andy-tracking-more-drivers kernel  and flashed it to the freerunner
and it works, but the wireless network of this kernel doens't work.
Tried the andy-tracking-more-drivers-stable but this kernel also doesn't
work :-(. Moving to the experimental kernels  doesn't work too
Even boot from SD doesn't work :-( ............ I think I forgot
something, but what ................ When I start the Freerunner, the
system says (with experimental kernel ) :
NAND read: device 0 offset 0x80000, size 0x200000
2097152 bytes read: OK
## Booting kernel from Legacy Image at 32000000 ...
Image Name: openmoko/2.6.28-andy-tracking+gi

Image Type: ARM Linux Kernel Image (uncompressed)

Load Address: 30008000
Entry Point: 30008000
Verifying Checksum ... OK
Loading Kernel Image ... OK
Starting kernel ..."
that's it. I've tried u-boot and qi, but the results are the same.
Only the standard kernel from Android and the
uImage-moredrivers-GTA02_andy-tracking-d1a9cf85c8608601.bin are working.
Other kernels don't.
Maybe there is something with my u-boot / qi environment? Can I clean up
that with dfu-util?
Hopefully somebody can point me in the right direction.
