Well, I've tried and I was able to compile QtMoko on Qemu aournd 2 
years ago (soon !).
(I took some notes on my Redmine: 
https://redmine.adorsaz.ch/projects/qtmoko_/wiki )

Maybe I can give a try with your qemu image.

First we should try to compile latest QtMoko with old kernel (that's 
what I should be able to do).
Next step will be to compile it with recent kernel I think.

I think that porting to Jessie will require too much efforts (even if 
Radek was able to port it from Squeeze to Wheezy almost alone IIRC).
If the 4.2 kernel doesn't drain too fast the battery, it could make 
sense to try the port if Replicant drains the battery too fast.

And I think that if Replicant is not too bad on GTA04, it will be more 
interesseting to use it, because nowadays standard Qt is able to build 
applications for Android.
