Hi Sean,

I had tried the newer kernel and the filesystem uploaded on 17 Nov,
But with this image I am unable to boot android on my freerunner, kernel gets loaded, White Screen is displayed and then nothing happens.
I see from the forum that Andy has merged your changes to stable tracking but there is no way we can use this kernel image to boot of your rootfs.(or is there a way).

Thanks for all the Good Work.

Thanks for pointing out that bluetooth wasn't working. I missed a patch 
to carry forward. Accelerometer are working, however, it is just the 
only thing they are used for at the moment is to flip orientation when 
playing a video. GPS was also working. How are you determining that it 
is not? There used to be a dev tool to let you see location fix 
information, but it is no longer available. Finally, I've had Wifi 
working on several occasions, but it is somewhat picky in the various 
kernel version. Android is setup properly for Wifi, however.
