Hello
I'm new into the world of flashing and rooting.
So I want to make my phone last longer and have it rooted.
I actually laid my eye's on the Siyahkernel and it looks really good.
So my question.
How to flash the Siyahkernel into my stock android version?
(Android-version 4.0.3 Baseband-version: i9100BULP6)
Could you recommend me a good tutorial?

And would you recommend the program [root]Triangle away?

Thx for reading

Siyah kernel is really appreciated and accepted by the people, but it is recently reported some problem with ICS Siyah kernel which is in Beta stage now,

so it is recommended to use CF-root for rooting your device first, then you can later on flash your favourite kernels.

Checkout CF-root thread link in my signature.

also refere Guide for ODIN flash,

Feel free to ask if you are not clear

You have to match the version code with your current kernel version, not the Baseband vesrion, to select the appropreate CF-root

Follow the Siyah's kernel thread, you would know that only one version (the rc6) had some weird "phone brick" issues which, we now know the reasons and the problem is fixed. The last 3.1 version is stable and works perfectly on my device , same thing for almost all users. Just wanted to moderate abit your comment .
