What is this:
This is the Verizon Xperia Play R800x Stock Kernel for 2.3.3 WITH OVERCLOCK TO 1.6GHz.

What works:
Absolutely EVERYTHING!

What doesn't work:
You tell me.

Who deserves credit:
KeiranFTW <-- This Guy
and all our other developers which always have helpful info when I google something!

Story:
KeiranFTW made this: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1400127
but WiFi was broken for R800x.
So I fixed it!
How? Used his kernel with stock ramdisk.

How to use:
1. Download file attached to this post: r800x-stock-overclock.img
2. You must have unlocked bootloader.
3. using fastboot type in the following command:
Code:
fastboot -i 0x0fce flash boot r800x-stock-overclock.img
4. This will not erase your data.
5. This has only been tested on R800x with stock 2.3.3.

Note:
The original kernel had recovery added (by pressing back button on boot), this one does not have that recovery.
You can use this recovery instead: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...vy.CWMinstaler, after installing press VOLUME DOWN after bot to enter recovery.

Sorry, probably not ... is there anything that the recovery in kernel does that the one that gets installed with the app doesn't?

It's kinda nice having it in the ramdisk, because then you never have to worry about it (because it works on boot, no matter what :P)

Well, yeah. If the /system directory is wiped you essentially wipe the recovery.img that the app installs, whereas the recovery would still be available (when inside the kernel) provided the boot partition is still there

I see, that makes sense ... If you flash a custom ROM and it goes wrong you'll have to get back to a PC to fix it if you don't have recovery in the kernel.

Ok, I can try ... But I've never done that before so any pointers would be great.
