HTC myTouch 3G Slide Status Report
This device is the HTC myTouch 3G Slide (espresso). This is going to be very similar to issue pmbootstrap#1203 (closed), except for the fact this device uses an ARMv6 MSM7227, which does have a FPU (VFP). Here's proof:
~ # cat /proc/cpuinfo Processor : ARMv6-compatible processor rev 5 (v6l) BogoMIPS : 245.61 Features : swp half thumb fastmult vfp edsp java CPU implementer : 0x41 CPU architecture: 6TEJ CPU variant : 0x1 CPU part : 0xb36 CPU revision : 5 Hardware : latte Revision : 0080 Serial : 0000000000000000

pmbootstrap flasher boot yields only the stock boot image (not the HTC logo in the RUU mode), for both kernels, and using the pre-built kernels from the stock rom and the CWM 184.108.40.206 recovery. The device is seen under
lsusb, but doesn't show under
ip a. Flashing the kernel/system image also produce
(remote: image update error) except for once when it actually worked (I believe it was the 2.6.29 kernel), but gave an error due to being unsigned (as I have
S-ON - not possible to get 'S-OFF' since I updated to unlock the bootloader).
Installing via zip/recovery also doesn't work (see #161), but even when bypassing this the screen goes black for a second and the recovery restarts. This may be due to the recovery being too old, I'm not sure.
I also created a wiki page here.
