Mod Type:: Kernel

Difficulty:: Moderate

Mod Base:: TouchWiz (Samsung)

Mod Status:: Ceased

Apply In:: CWM Recovery

Carrier:: Verizon

Optional:: Insecure Boot

Requires Root:: No

Optional:: Overclocked

Android Version:: 2.3.X (GB)

Source:: https://github.com/i...sch-i510_kernel
Here is the initial release of my kernel. I'd like to have some other stuff fixed/working, but for now, this is it. I've made a lot of changes and I tried to list them all below, but I know there is stuff that I missed. Currently, the only issue that I know of is that the boot animation will be out of sync and may skip on boot. I have currently retained the stock boot animation, but custom boot animations are also possible if people would like them.

Also, while this kernel can work for recovery, I currently have not tested it, so recovery will remain what it is (ie. jt1134's CWM). I plan on testing recovery soon and releasing an updated Odin for it, as well as just having the kernel zip re-flash recovery.

Installation Instructions:
1. Download zip
2. Transfer to SDCard
3. Reboot into recovery, you'll need to have CWM if you don't already
4. Install zip from SDCard and select the zip you downloaded.
5. Reboot and enjoy Posted Image

NOTES:
If you are experiencing problems, I need detailed info to be able to fix it or help you out. Failure to provide detailed info will mean I'm just going to ignore your problem as user error. Details would be something such as which kernel you are flashing (filename) and steps to reproduce the issue. Also, if you used any other kernels that had the same problem or didn't have the problem.

DISCLAIMER
By downloading and using the kernels, this signifies that you have read this full post and the FAQ before reporting an issue. You also take all responsibility if your phone breaks or your warranty becomes void (which, if you're flashing this, it already is). I offer no guarantees as to anything working, though I try not to release broken stuff, it happens sometimes.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I install this?
You flash this in CWM. If you need CWM, you can find it here

Can I use ROM Manager to flash this?
If you didn't use Odin to flash CWM, this will not work. Also, ROM Manager is not compatible with CWM when it fully replaces stock recovery.

Can I install this over another Voodoo Lagfix kernel?
Yes. Any kernel that use's supercurio's lagfix can be flashed over any other kernel that uses it.

How do I disable Voodoo Lagfix?
Create a file on the SDCard named disable-lagfix within the voodoo folder (/sdcard/voodoo/disable-lagfix). You can also use the option in the Voodoo Control app (from the market) or the option in CWM Recovery to disable the lagfix.

How do I know if it is installed?
Go to Settings > About Phone and the kernel version should read:
Froyo
2.6.32.9
imnuts@vitualbox #1
Gingerbread - One of the two below
2.6.35.7-EP4-<hash>-dirty
2.6.35.7-FP1

Will this work with xxx ROM?
This will work with any currently available ROM that is posted here.

Can I overclock with this kernel?
Overclocking is supported on the Gingerbread version.

Can I use SetCPU with this kernel?
You can use SetCPU with this, but issues may arise if you use profiles. If you have problems and are using profiles, I'm not going to try to fix them as profiles do not always work properly on SGS phones.

Does this kernel include xxx feature?
If it is not listed in the first post, probably not. To be sure, check the commits to the source on Github.

Can you add/implement xxx feature?
If you can link to what you want added/changed, I can look into doing so. If you just say something like "I want bigger quadz!" with no information about what you want or where to find it, I'll just disregard your request.

I am having xxx issue, can you fix it?
See the NOTES section above. Failure to provide any steps to reproduce your error, or a log of the issue as it is occurring will not get your problem fixed. I need the output from logcat and/or dmesg to be able to fix problems. Use the following to obtain a log (easiest with ADB).
adb shell dmesg > dmesg.txt
adb logcat > logcat.txt
Enter one of the commands and attempt to recreate your issue. Logcat will run constantly until you stop it (disconnect the phone, or ctrl+c). Dmesg will dump the current buffer and end. Try to get a logcat first as it will be easier to capture the error. PM me the files once you've collected them and I will look into it. DO NOT POST THEM IN THE FORUM. Logcat and dmesg may both contain identifying information (like your phone number or email address) so PMing them to me will prevent everyone from seeing this info. If you need help, ask or join IRC.

If you would like something added to the FAQ, please post it in the following format:
[noparse][b]Put the question here[/b]
Put the answer here[/noparse]

I installed the 1-15-12 version and my kernel reads "2.6.35.7-EP4-g5c1404b" . I installed the 1-12-12 version before. Does that mean that the new "dirty" version did not install?

Great work imnuts

Quick question I just want to be sure here I can flash this over IMoseyON's EP4P kernel without having to convert the file system back to rfs?
