I highly doubt Motorola will release an updated kernel ... they have almost no support for this pohne its very sad. Is it possible to use the custom Galaxy Ace kernels?

The Galaxy Ace originally came with Android 2.2 with kernel 2.6.32 then Samsung officially released the Android 2.3 update with kernel 2.6.35.
We can't use the galaxy ace kernel because our phone has a locked boot loader that requires the kernel to be signed by Motorola.
Yes, I don't think Motorola will release any more updates for this phone. I'll contact them anyway, and demand an update for this phone.
The reason I wanted the newer gingerbread kernel is to update the graphics drivers which are reported to provide up to 50% performance boost. Graphics on this phone tend to be sluggish sometimes.
The only hope we have now is Cyanogen 9.
Edit: After some reading, I found out that we're not the only ones having this issue. Many other Motorola phones (such as Droid X2) are stuck with Froyo kernel. Thanks a lot moto
