I just wanted to bring up this post again and ask if anyone has successfully
installed and run android from a single partition on SD.  I've tried the
panicking images which boot for me from the first partition, but I get a
kernel panic because kernel can't find /sbin/init.  Maybe the kernel is
looking for init in a different partition?

Hope someone can shed some light here.
