Latest Kernel mod -> Go Here
Based on 4.1.B.0.431 ICS 4.0.4 Kernel, features new CPU governors and autoroot.


Q. Who would benefit from this?
Those who want to stick to stock kernel for Official ICS (4.1.A.0.562), but would still want to get the benefits of init.d scripts, and native root access!
I personally feel ICS stock kernel is more battery friendly than Night-elf RC2 kernel.

Q. Features?
- init.d support (credits DooMLoRD for showing the way)
- ro.secure=0 (that is now adb has native root access!)
- clockworkmod 5.5 (credits Night-elf)
- no other changes to stock kernel


Download

boot_ICS_plus_v5.img
Changes: Previous features +
1. Switched to Doomlord's arc ics recovery (better features)
2. Important bug-fixes. (Please update!)

boot_ICS_plus_v4.img (updated 2012-05-19)
Changes: Previous features +
1. Perfect ADB connection in recovery.
2. Short vibrate on entering recovery added


boot_stock_ICS_initd_root_cwm_v3.img
Changes: Now restores stock WIFI modules (so you can directly flash from Night-elf kernel without losing WIFI!)
Those who are using v2 without problems do not need to update!


boot_stock_ICS_initd_root_cwm_v2.img
Changes: CWM 5.5, with ADB & USB mount (credits Night-elf)


Q. How to install?
Just as you install a custom kernel.

If no wifi, just delete "modules_version" and "modules_reversion" in "/system/lib/modules" and reboot

Steps:
1. Follow this guide to install official ICS + root
(Do not install CWM)
2. If you already have DooMLoRD/nAa CWM, go to /system/bin with any root explorer and delete recovery.tar and chargemon
3. Power down device and get into FASTBOOT MODE -> switch off device hold menu key & plugin usb. (LED notification turns BLUE)
4. check fastboot with "fastboot devices"
5. flash boot image
fastboot flash boot boot.img
6. Reboot with "fastboot reboot"
7. Enjoy!

Just extract Night-Elf ramdisk and use it. I was planning on doing it in fact.

NO, NO !! His ramdisk has installer for his WiFi modules!
Would have to modify his ramdisk anyway!

Night-elf kernel is good, but it is not from latest ICS sources, I feel battery drain is a little bit more than his GB kernel!!

That would be nice too.

Most important is CWM recovery.

Don't want to add it manually after flashing rom..

Yeah would be nice to see recovery, cause system recovery doesn't allow to mount sdcard in recovery mode, moreover adb cannot see phone in system recovery.
