Yes I've an idea and I'll continue to work on it really soon:
Port Replicant to that phone.

The current status is that I've a 3.8 kernel booting on it with
display, input, wakelocks etc(the android stuff)...
So far adb makes the kernel null pointers at shutdown.
Also It's highly untested...

Before we couldn't even get it booting correctly under replicant 4.0:
or there were some interrupt issue, or there were some touchscreen
isue(that I solved in that 3.8 kernel).

Denis.
