I started with an bricked device that was back in 2013-2014 my main device with I was a child. It didn't do anything apart from being in bootloop.

Then I searched in XDA the current (April, 2020) status of the device. It looks unmaintained but I came across with an kernel source and the port begins. I tried several times to get into compiling an android kernel with patches on other devices but without success. This time it was different maybe because I find the correct tools at first. I compiled the kernel, tested on android and it does not works, a few patches later it boots. And now I'm here doing things.
