This is now included in my MoDaCo Custom ROM for the Galaxy Nexus - details.

I have created a custom kernel for those that would like CIFS support or USB drive / keyboard / mouse support. This is a temporary download until such time as MCR is released. This is based on the stock kernel source with purely config tweaks at this time.

This should be flashed via ClockworkMod Recovery.

This is designed for devices running the I9250XXKK1 / ITL41D ROM.

Thanks Paul.

Just two things:
1. You say try using 'fastboot boot' rather than 'fastboot boot' in your post. Just a heads up so you can fix that.
2. So the Galaxy Nexus does not support USB storage out of the box? It needs kernel modifications to make it work?

Thanks for all your hard work.

1. I think he wanted to say [use 'fastboot boot' rather than 'fastboot flash' to try before flashing].
2. I think he added HID support to the kernel.

md5 is not a file, it's a checksum. You flash modified boot.img with custom kernel using fastboot flash boot boot.mck.img (as mentioned in the first post). You need to boot your device in fastboot mode on device with unlocked bootloader. Or maybe I didn't understand the question?

1. CIFS - http://searchcio-midmarket.techtarge...et-File-System
MCR - Modaco Custom ROM

2. Not sure about that.

3. If you don't know what CIFS is then why you want to flash this? I mean no disrespect to anyone but if you don't know what something is and you don't know how to flash it then don't flash it. Better wait for ready ROMs (mine is ready but still waiting for working recovery) with custom kernels. Shouldn't take long

OK, let me start from the beginning
I was really interested with the Galaxy Nexus
Then when I found out that it didn't have SD card slot, I was really bummed
I was planning on using the GN for watching alot of movies, but without a external storage, it's hard to store alot of files at once (particularly HD videos)
Then I learned that GN was able to use USB OTG
So, I thought of using a flash drive to store my movies, then just plug it into the GN if I wanted to watch something
That's why I was really interested in this costum kernel
I wanted to use the Vanilla Android, if I use modded ROMs, will the themes change?
