Custom firmware for caanoo

The first custom firmware for caanoo is here!

Download the custom firmware (1.06b based) from download.binarycell.org

Hardware working:
* TouchScreen
* Joypad
* SPI (gyroscope)
* Haptic (vibration engines)

Usb and wireless are not tested, but assume work

Wireless must be the same functionality as 1.06 (no WPA-PSK)

  2. At this time nothing, is a simple proof of concept of kernel compilation for caanoo, replacing the official firmware with this one.

    In future releases, I hope to add features that people needs, like support for other wifi dongles, external devices suck as 3G modems, ipx networks, nfs remote mount etc...

  3. I have wpa2-psk with every firmware.

    It depends on the wifi chipset you choose ;-).

  4. Could You also post kernel config you are using, and explain how to get the final kernel image ?

    Good work anyway. I have spent some time trying to get some working modules for the caanoo without success.

  8. It seems that I'm a little late ;)
    Could I ask about details how did you build the firmware? I'd like to port OpenDingux for the Caanoo (buildroot config is ready but for some reason filesystem is no mounted)
