OpenVPN on droid2 / verizon running 2.2 (Froyo)

The tun.ko module for 2.2 is missing on the phone.  Get it here[1].

Needs root access on the phone.  I used Z4 root.  Using "adb shell"
with root permissions it's possible to remount the /system share as
rw, so the tun.ko can be copied to /system/lib

# mount
get list of mount points => find the one corresponding to /system

# mount -o remount,rw /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system

Then copy the tun.ko module to /system/lib/modules, either directly,
or through the sd card, then copying to /system if it doesn't allow
direct copy.

I had this problem trying to insert the module:

<3>[89176.615234] tun: version magic '2.6.32.9-27220-g328f560 preempt mod_unload ARMv7 ' should be '2.6.32.9 preempt mod_unload ARMv7

Apparently insmod can't stript this magic, but it's possible to remove
it by editing the object file.  Using objdump I find this:

$ objdump -j .modinfo tun.ko -s

tun.ko:     file format elf32-little

I tried to edit this out in the binary.  It loaded properly, but
crashed the phone when actually used.

# cat /proc/version
Linux version 2.6.32.9-g9e2c63d (xrpk47@il93lnxdroid25) (gcc version 4.4.0 (GCC) ) #1 PREEMPT Mon Nov 15 22:44:13 CST 2010

Maybe need to compile from Motorola source [2]?

Ok, this one[4] from this thread[3] works on the version above.  It
sets up the tunnel connection.

Still a problem: the "ifconfig" on android doesn't work as expected.


Fri Sep 16 15:08:24 2011 PUSH: Received control message: 'PUSH_REPLY,route-gateway 192.168.14.254,ifconfig 192.168.14.44 255.255.255.0'
Fri Sep 16 15:08:24 2011 Options error: Unrecognized option or missing parameter(s) in [PUSH-OPTIONS]:2: ifconfig (2.1.1)

See here [5][6].  If I set it manually it works:

ifconfig tap0 192.168.14.44 netmask 255.255.255.0 up

TODO:
 - fix vpn on zni
 - auto load tun.ko ?
 - fix ifconfig stuff | use external script workaround
