I have a Huawei u8160 running Cyanogenmod 7.2 .

I have been looking for the fuse.ko module for my phone, but whenever I find anything ,terminal emulator tells me that it is incompatible!

I want it to enable NTFS file system support using this tutorial

So I was wondering where I can find the appropriate fuse.ko module?

NOTE : I've already seen this link but I don't think that's what I want.

You can build that module yourself from the source code of the Linux kernel your device is running (presumably some Cyanogenmod kernel).

  • You can find out which kernel your device is running, and with which compiler it was built, using cat /proc/version. Try finding the corresponding kernel sources in the Cyanogenmod repositories.

  • The kernel configuration file used to build your kernel (.config) should come with the kernel sources. If you're lucky, you can dump it with zcat /proc/config.gz on your device. Put the .config file into your source tree.

  • Find a matching compiler. Typically, one of the compilers coming with the NDK will be fine.

  • If the kernel uses modversions, you first need to build the kernel to get the Module.symvers file right. Assuming the NDK's cross compiler is in your path, try:

    make -j4 ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=arm-linux-androideabi-
  • One you have a kernel, add the modules you need to the configuration by using the xconfig (or menuconfig) make targets:

    make -j4 ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=arm-linux-androideabi- xconfig
  • Build the module.

    make -j4 ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=arm-linux-androideabi- modules

    If insmod'ing the module fails with an error saying that _GLOBAL_OFFSET_TABLE_ was not found, try adding the -fno-pic option:

    make -j4 ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=arm-linux-androideabi- XTRA_CFLAGS=-fno-pic modules

Good luck.
