00:01 dproldan sorry,  didn't saw your reply
00:02 dproldan I'm using the stock kernel
00:02 [mbm] ok, you know about kpanic?
00:02 dproldan not much
00:04 [mbm] there's a kenrel hook to capture panic messages and write them to the kpanic partition, you can either reboot into recovery and poke at the kpanic or restore it back to stock and the normal bootup will probably copy the kpanic messages to the dropbox
00:05 dproldan how do I access that dropbox?
00:05 [mbm] something like /data/system/dropbox
00:05 [mbm] which if I remember right also shows up in 'duumpsys dropbox'
00:06 dproldan ok, let me try that,  i'm flashing boot and system back
00:07 dproldan rebooting now
00:10 dproldan cool:
00:10 dproldan # dumpsys dropbox
00:10 dproldan Drop box contents: 4 entries

00:11 dproldan don't know if these are too old,  it's 2:11 am right now here

00:13 [mbm] another stupid trick is compiling your own kenrel with the debug uart setting which rewires the usb connector as a 3.3v ttl serial
00:13 [mbm] which then means that you can get a serial console and live dmesg
00:14 [mbm] or on devices where that isn't possible you can compile in text mode framebuffer
00:15 dproldan i can make such a cable.  I don't think I can compile the kernel,  I don't know a damn thing about it
00:16 [mbm] you can actually just grab the kernel I used for my recovery image; it has a text framebuffer
00:17 [mbm] although it's one of those blink and you'll miss it things when it comes to recovery
00:17 dproldan that's nice
00:17 [mbm] it's set not to show dmesg on console, but init writes 'A N D R O I D _' as it loads
00:17 [mbm] which is then immediately overwritten by the recovery screen
00:18 [mbm] actually, now that I think about it, you probably should be using that kernel because the other thing that I did was fixed adb access
00:19 [mbm] motorola kernels support several different usb modes controlled by a /dev/usb_device_mode
00:19 [mbm] there's a daemon called usbd that runs and sets the mode, charger, adb, msc ...
00:20 [mbm] and there's usually also a usb.apk which makes the usb mode changable via a notification
00:20 [mbm] but since recovery didn't have any of that I simply hacked up a few things in the kernel so I could still get into adb
00:20 dproldan yes,  it bugs to no end that even adb starts so late in teh boot process with the stock system,  is ti because of the kernel?
00:21 dproldan ok
00:22 dproldan I'll do this tomorrow,  too late now.  thanks!
00:39 dproldan joined #motoactv
00:43 [mbm] well, the stock system has the adb service in init.rc marked as disabled, it gets reactivated when /data is mounted and /data/property/persist.* gets parsed
00:43 [mbm] but that just starts adbd, you still have the problem of the usb itself
00:43 [mbm] where you need to wait for usbd to kick in and set the right mode
00:44 [mbm] so yes, this is all because of the moto kernel, and the reason why I hacked up the recovery kernel

23:15 Snoothy joined #motoactv
23:24 Snoothy I would have never thought that the actv would get ICS
23:24 Snoothy what will ICS bring to the table for the actv?
23:25 Snoothy besides better fragment and actionbar support
23:28 * Snoothy should sleep, he can't read articles right
23:33 [mbm] Snoothy: probably won't notice it's ics unless you're writing apps
23:34 Snoothy it's the app for the phones which gets a bump to ICS :\
23:34 Snoothy but yeah, i'm going to make a couple of apps for my actv
23:34 Snoothy mostly widgets tho
23:55 Snoothy [mbm]: what's the link to your wiki again?
23:57 dproldan google for "opticaldelusion motoactv"
23:58 dproldan bah
