Prepare Raspberry Pi and install all necessary packages for cross compiling – from my previous post http://www.raspberrypirobot.com/how-to-compile-kernel/

Get Kamal’s source which has the patch for ST7735R controller.

Copy config from raspberry Pi to Ubuntu box and rename to .config

Configure .config to include the new patch and options.

Confirm that “BCM2708 SPI controller driver” is set to Y

If not chang it to Y

For displaying the console on the TFT enable options in your .config
