Changelog-Quote from original thread

* Partially fixed camera (can take pictures, video recording and panaroma in stock app will come later)
* Added correct permissions for sdcard, so apps can access it.
* Optimized boot animation performance
* UMS should be working now. If it’s not:
> try rebooting the device
> Open terminal emulator; run this command “setprop persist.sys.usb.config mass_storage,adb” (without ” of course) and reboot
NOTE: I did some “experiments” in the kernel (long story short, increased graphics memory) so in this build we have only 269MB of accessible RAM. It’s also possible to reduce graphics memory to get more RAM, but I think that is not such a good idea.
