Hi I have a sony ericsson xperia arc...and tried flashing the kernel
so I could install a custom rom...at the end of the process I naively
disconnected the phone before it was finished...now It just sticks at the boot screen...
Ok, I've tried searching for this but could not find any relavant info on my problem.
The weird thing is, after I compile the kernel I dowloaded on kernel.org, with frame buffer support and do all the described steps including editing lilo.conf and running lilo and then trying to boot the newly compiled kernel the screen does not just go black, but it freezes with boot output in pale grey colour
Please let me know if this is not the right place to ask this question.
I was trying to compile and build kernel 3.2.0, by following <Linux
Administration - A Beginner's Guide> written by Wale Soyinka.

initrdfile is /boot/initrd-3.2.0-custom.im

My query is based on this question. I want a custom splash screen to be displayed during bootloader,kernel-boot and init phases of booting. I am able to add my logo for u-boot. Rather than customizing kernel to show the same logo, I want to fully disable the kernel from updating the framebuffer/display.
I bricked my phone. I flashed BMS Kernel (see link below)
and now I cant boot up my S3.
I have liquid smooth 4.2.2 on my phone (love it) but now made an error. My phone will boot - and it has a splash screen that says "Samsung Glaxt SIII Booped byBMS" After that I cant do anything. My phone is frozen.
I created a custom kernel and after installing it using "sudo dpkg -i", I get the messages that uImage, uInitrd and boot.scr have been backed up and created. In /boot, initrd.img.old and vmlinuz.old have not changed, although a new vmlinuz and initrd.img for the new kernel have been created. After manually correcting, I reboot and get "Uncompressing Linux...
