CHANGELOGS AND SOURCE

https://github.com/gustavoss/android...commits/master
https://github.com/gustavoss/ramdisk/commits/master

KNOWN PROBLEMS

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...Ttw/edit#gid=0

- Stweaks is not working at the moment, and i can't work to fix it because of reasons above.

- Freezes from undervolting/overclocking and any data lost in the freezing process is your responsibility!

- The stable kernels in OP are tested for stability before being posted here.

- If you have problems follow these steps to flash a stock cm kernel with odin:


- First of all install the correct drivers:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/cm10...d?source=files

- Download odin and extract it:
https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B64D...ZYaXEzNjQ/edit

- Download the cyanogenmod's kernel tar:
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B64...it?usp=sharing

- After installing the drivers, open odin, boot your phone in download mode (vol down + home + power) and connect it to your computer

- In odin select PDA mode and select the kernel's tar file

- Hit "Start" button and it will install the kernel then reboot your phone.

- Here you have 2 options: if you are running cyanogenmod just let it boot, if you are not running cyanogenmod, take the battery out and boot it into recovery (vol up + home + power) and flash a kernel or rom zip with stock kernel.

afaik linux kernel must be opensource, his sources are here:
https://github.com/gokhanmoral

CM sources with mali drivers are here:
https://github.com/CyanogenMod/andro...msung_smdk4210

if GM or any member has any problem with the name "Siyah" i will respect it and change it in OP, no problem. Also this kernel will be removed as soon as GM updates his own kernel to work with latest cm10.1. I do not claim this to be my work, i just got the sources and updated drivers then compiled.

Thanks for clarifying. will this work with hybrid roms like Rootbox and jellybam? And would it not be better to use siyah 6.0b4 as base since it has more gpu steps?

it will work as long as the rom has the same video drivers from cm10.1 (r3p1)

b5 has 5 gpu steps aswell but i don't know if the kernel is using all gpu steps because cm kernel's default is 3 steps and i haven't touched the driver's code. If you meant cpu steps i think its not worth the effort, both siyah and cm kernels use 5 step cpu for some good reason
