Thanks for the info and comments. I do however have queries regarding the kernels to be used.
I have (or had, who knows) the speedmod K16-11 CWM kernel installed, with a pretty stock 2.3.5. Last night I upgraded to ICS (CM9), using CWM to simply install a zip file. First reboot got into a loop. I ran the .zip update with CMW again (which, incidently, had been upgraded to 18.104.22.168). Anyhow, things seem to be working fine, apart from recognised ICS nightly build bugs.
And yet, apparently speedmod kernel is not meant for CM mods : "[Speedmod kernel use] A : Any stock Samsung Gingerbread firmware, and most popular customized Samsung ROMs. It does not work with CM or MIUI ROMs."
Should this not be working? Am I right in saying my speedmod kernel is running fine with ICS? Or am I going to experience bugs down the line? I'm rather confused as to what I have done
Thanks for the great work
