that bug was in siyahkernel's v3.1rc6 and that kernel is already removed and I have uploaded another rc6 which is based on update4 sources.
I feel bad and I am sorry. However, I am not sorry because of a bug that I made but I am sorry because phones are bricked because of that problem. I am almost 100% sure that the problem which bricked phones is caused by Samsung's mistake or otherwise I would completely stop releasing new kernels.
you may choose not to use siyahkernel again and choose one of the available several high-school kiddie's work which are usually just a blind mix of other kernels but that will not make your device any safer because most kernels have very similar patches/code.
there was only one way that I could avoid that problem in rc6 and that would be to say in several threads that "wow, update5 base rocks, but I have no time to rebase my sources on it" and wait for somebody else do it before me.. then I would wait and see if there were any problems.... if I did that the result would be different but there would again be some bricks.. it wouldn't be you or siyahkernel users but it would be some other kernel's users...
If you blame me more than Samsung in this matter I won't (and can't) stop you but I don't think it is fair.
