Before proceding, please consider learning from Garfield :

(Thanx to MuertoKo for this educational image)

I have spend numerous hours coding, merging ... and writing this OP, so please have the decency to at least read it before asking questions.


Disclaimer

FIRST OF ALL, do a Nandroid backup before flashing !


By flashing this kernel you agree to do this at your very own risk ! I will and can not be
held responsible for whatever may happen as a consequence of using this kernel / script generator.
This software is made available to you as is, no waranties can be given.

If you do not agree to these terms, then please use your browser's back key.

Installing this kernel will trip the Knoxx efuse, which will have been tripped already since you need
a custom recovery to flash this kernel.

Seeing this on boot will be normal once you use a custom kernel :

You have been warned !


ROM Compatibility

This kernel is based on Samsung Update 1 ... kernel sources, so it is intended only to be used on Samsung (TW) based ROMs.

The kernel has been tested on :
  • Stock rooted UBMI7 Samsung ROM
  • ... (you tell me ;))

What To Expect Using This Kernel

First of all, the main reason this kernel even exists is because I make it for my own personal use, I don't mind adding one or the other feature upon request by a user even if I don't use that feature personnally.

Main objectives for this kernel :

  1. be as stable as possible to be usable as a perfect daily kernel (conservative approach)

  2. give a good battery life while being snappy

  3. give users an easy and safe way to customize settings

  4. be and stay as close to stock Samsung as possible

  5. allow only for moderate CPU OC

  6. include some standard Linux features missing in stock kernel (e.g. kernel module support...)

  7. include interesting commits by other devs (giving proper credit, of course !)

  8. updated to kernel.org Linux (ok scratch that, 3.4.y is just too much trouble, not worth the effort)

What NOT To Expect Using This Kernel

  • experimental modifications

  • cutting edge development

  • thrive to be the first, fastest, best, most advanced ... kernel ever !

    I just suspect there is a public for genuine slightly modified kernels that are a no fuzz to use, and which are aimed towards "standard power users" as opposed to "hungry beta testers and debuggers" (been there, done that, fun time in my HD2 times helping as I could on Dorimanx kernel). But I need my device on a daily bases, privately and for work, so my device just has to work.

Credits & Thanx

This is the most important bit of them all, a small place to pay tribute to all those who have helped me making this kernel :

  • Faux123

    Thanx for helping me get started, out of an almost 20 years break on Linux kernel compiling (at the time it was Linux 0.47 if I remember well), helping me build my compile box(es), upfront getting my first Android kernel compiled, making mods, merging sources, using github in general ... and always taking the time to explain and help out !

  • Corrsea

    Huge thanx for thorough testing and usefull advice, since my first steps on Android, at the time we were both running Tytung's Nexus HD2 on our initially WinMo device, chasing any possible bugs there were to iron out.

  • Sotmax

    Huge thanx for making a perfectly stable 240dpi Samsung based ROM, that has become my a daily driver !

  • MuertoKo

    Thanx for pushing me here and there to go further with my kernels, and for testing them on your daily and reporting back.

  • uberto.costanzo & F3nr1s

    Thanx for your support, for testing the kernel and reporting back.

  • Amarullz

    And last but nowhere least, huge thanx to Amarullz for giving us such a great tool, without Aroma Installer flashing kernels / ROMs would still be stone-age kind of voodoo magic, now it has become a proper user experince, giving everybody an easy way to customize whatever is being flashed !

Yup like I mentioned I was using Mobile and right when I was denied I figured it was because of that. Hoped on wifi and was able to proceed with no issues..
