[KERNEL][REF][Q&A] Siyah 5.0+[ICS/CM10] 6.0b5+[JB/CM10.1] +DISCUSSION+. NON-DEV!!!
****SIYAH KERNEL DEVELOPMEMT... STILL GOING STRONG!!!****
Thanks to his loyal fans and and appreciative SGS2 community Siyah is still going strong on the SGS2. GM has a donated device to play with and with recently released official JB sources development has resumed in earnest...
If you have been directed here after posting in the original Siyah thread and are wondering why. Or you are a bit unsure which thread to post to, the man himself posted this:

I always welcome your feedback such as "it was working in X version but it is not working Y, it gives me blahblah problem and here is the logcat and last_kmsg output".
sometimes last_kmsg cannot help but it is always good to post it if you are unsure.
normally, I have patience for those who has no technical knowledge. but lately there were too much talk in the development thread which was only wasting people's time reading it.
you can post your screenshots and talk about "best settings" here.
but they do not help much with the development.
I will read this thread.
but not as much as I read the other one.
So there you have it, honestly rank your noobishness to yourself and familiarity with Siyah and follow XDA general rule no.1: READ the last 10 pages of thread before posting and skim the rest. Once you are a familiar with Siyah don't be scared to post intelligent suggestions and such on his thread. You will find he is one of the most helpful DEV's around especially for the inexperienced... he won't even call you a Noob

There is already a dual use cm9/siyah combination use thread for disvussion so use it. For general discussion about your Siyah experience and/or issues please use this thread.
***If you consider yourself a inexperienced post your questions here first.***
Since Siyah is the all-in-kernel there are simply too many different roms that it can run making it very hard for the dev to troubleshoot if every little issue is posted on his dev thread, many of which are super noob, noobish or posted without prior testing/problem solving/research.
- battery issues
- wake locks
- PERCEIVED Bugs. Remember that what you experience as a bug is likely just a rom issue or settings related. If many users experience the same thing then GM will take a look.
- extweaks issues
- CPU related
- suggestions/additions to future kernel versions.
Remember this thread is for EVERYTHING related to general Siyah kernel experiences you have and issues.
