Hello all. This is my own custom kernel.

I tailored it to work on stock roms.

I updated the sources (as my knowledge allows me to do it) up to 2.6.35.14.

I put there SWAP support (via a second partition on your SD card). You can enable it with Swapper2.

I also put init.d support. You *must* follow the step number 2 detailed in this guide: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2287540, as I already did step 1 for you.

EXT4 and NTFS support is there, too, in the case that you have a sdcard formatted in that file systems, but I haven't tested the NTFS features.

HTC Performance locks is disabled: you can underclock down to 19,2 khz if you want to.

Also, there are SmartAssV2 as default governor and Simple I/O as scheduler.

I hope I will soon be able to put undervolting there, or more CPU clocks for more choices of clock settings.

Comments, please, and enjoy!!

Edit:

You have to copy the files inside modules.zip to
Code:
/system/lib/modules
. Thanks to johan111 for pointing to this.

Yes, you will have to flash it by using fastboot:

(remember to have a cwm backup just in case you want to reflash your original boot partition)

Code:
fastboot flash boot bootv6initd.img
Swap partition goes as second partition of SD card. Swapper2 will work to format it as 'swap' type.

It's a text file you should create. Type in the code, set owner and permissions and you are done.

The moment I install the provided zip, and reboots, the phone becomes un-stable and the screen flickers constantly with the icons.

Android :2.3.3
Stock Chacha Sense 2.1 based on India: 1.20.720.1
Kernel: 2.6.35.

Any help !!
