  Basically u need to have Celestial SoC & drivers related patch.
  Then, u can download desired kernel or latest 3.3.x.

  Apply and do the forward porting. It won't be straight forward, u need to re-write a bit.
  U can always refer any other celectial SoC family in latest kernel source or other ARM9 family.

  see -> arch/arm/

    Dear All;

    I have a digital satellite receiver (named Chipbox), which uses linux kernel

    Main chipset name is Celestial CSM1203 ( It is ARM926EJ-S core).

    The original kernel source (and all other sources) can be downloaded here:

    I would like to add some functionality (Such as CIFS, USB WIFI...) to my STB. In order to do that, I need to cross compile new kernel.

    However, the chipset provider ( Celestial) does not provide a new kernel to do this. They just compiled for about 5-6 years ago, and they didn't do a new kernel from that time.

    So, I need your helps:

    1) Celestial has done a lot of modifications on the original source ( drivers, headers, definitions...) All these changes can be seen by using MELD tool.

    2) In order to have a new kernel ( Such as which can be running on my chipbox, what are the steps should be done one by one?

    Can you please explain for a newbie please?

    Best Regards
