CONFIG_IP_MULTICAST is listed as disabled in /proc/config.gz. I think, this might be the reason why the "Panasonic Remote 2" android app running in Alien Dalvik cannot see my TV set. I already did a

route add -net dev wlan0

but that alone doesn't help with the issue.

Also, there is only /proc/net/igmp6, no /proc/net/igmp present on the device.

Any hints how I could compile my own kernel to check that suspicion? In particular I am looking for the exact kernel version and patch set used on the release.

I've asked if this option can be enabled by default.

That's great! However, for more experimental stuff, having some instructions how to compile a custom kernel would also be very much appreciated!

It's probably better to wait for that when we've rolled out an update fixing the 'tinkerability' issue of the bootloader.
