Default [Q] updating I9100 kernel

OK so I have an GS2 running:

rom = 20120806 CM9

kernel version = 3.0.32-CM-ge9cef6cinky-ghost@cyanogenmod#1 SMP PREEMPT Sun Aug 5

Baseband = I9100XXKE7

Android = 4.0.4

Ok so I did the whole Odin thing for the first and only time around March/April updating from GB and haven't touched the kernel version of this phone again so it's quite old. I want to update to CM10 but I'm not sure if all my versions are correct and all the reading I do with kernels slightly confuses me because I'm not sure how it affects my current version as the CF-Root kernel I did ages ago isn't in my 'about phone', so I needed to ask on here because Whirlpool didn't respond.

Can I simply flash CM10 straight over the top? Or do/can I update the kernel version to do this? I would ideally love to have a kernel that optimizes battery life and gives me the ability to have the soft buttons flash for a notification.

I found these threads, are they applicable to my case?

Or can someone point me in the right direction because I'm happy to read but I need help narrowing my search to my situation.

Cheers.

You are running CM9 and you want to flash CM10? If yes, then you don't need to flash any kernel to do that.

Just follow these steps:

1. Download latest CM10 nightly and Jellybean Gapps

2. Backup your contacts, messages, and apps

3. Boot to CWM recovery
- Backup your ROM (under Backup and restore (optional)
- wipe data / factory reset
- format /system (under mounts and storage)
- flash CM10
- flash Jellybean Gapps
- reboot phone

Done.





I will no longer be as active as before on XDA. So please don't send me any PM. Thanks

Here is the CM 10 thread for nighty buildshttp://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1794758

I was on MIUI (ICS 4.0.4) and have jumped to Resurrection Remix 3.0.9 and now on Revolt JB 2.5 both of which are based on AOKP and CM10.

I flashed Siyah and then DreamKernel and finally landed on Dorimanx 5.85. So I think you should be okay flashing a new Kernel for your current settings. I would suggest trying out different kernels as there is no best kernel and it depends on your usage. Dormianx has a Battery and Great Battery profile which you can activate via Extweaks app or in recovery. I am not sure about the soft buttons flash though.
