Halloween

Today’s Halloween here in the Philippines and, although we don’t usually celebrate it like those in other countries with their “trick or treat” thing we usually visit the graves of our deceased loved ones either today or tomorrow. This is the first Halloween where my father’s one of those I visit. It’s a bit sad doing so…recalling the past times when he was still alive. Still, I comfort myself by thinking that he’s now in a better place together with his brother and other deceased relatives. We all have our time of passing from this life anyways…just a matter of when and how. Anyways, it’s something. πŸ™‚

Kernel Bisection

In kernel development, sometimes you have to bisect between the most current and known working versions in order to find the source of a bug. This happened to me recently while I was blindly cherry-picking commits from the main Linux branch into my kernel. I was trying to do it as quickly as possible since it was already late and I needed to sleep. After booting it up, there was no apparent problem but after a while it became apparent that the kernel was becoming too eager at terminating processes. I tried first reverting the more likely commits but after a while it became apparent I’ll have to bisect to find the problem. Eventually, it was a VM change that caused the problem and after researching a bit about it, found the appropriate fix further down the main Linux branch. All’s well that ends well. πŸ™‚

*lesson learned: patience is a virtue…faster doesn’t always mean better…take your time in doing things…especially VM changes… :p

New kernels released for my G Watch R and One G1 devices! I don’t know if I’ll get around to updating my Nexus 7 2013 and Mi 4i kernels since I don’t use them much but who knows? :p

Cherry Mobile One G1 Stock Images

I’ve just obtained a new device, the Cherry Mobile One G1 and I’ve uploaded the stock images I got here! Look at the menu for links or, if you know my naming convention already, just go directly there! πŸ˜€ I’ve also already made a custom kernel for this but I’m still improving it so just wait for it! πŸ™‚

Marshmallow’s Here!!!

Wow! That was fast! Upon checking my usual pages after waking up, I found that Google did a simultaneous release! Factory images for the usual Nexus devices have been released for download TOGETHER WITH SOURCES! Now I have work to do… πŸ˜€

Reuploading…

I’m currently reuploading all my stock images for the G Watch R. Maybe I’ll create a page for it later so that people can download it directly from the site… πŸ’‘
