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.

tokafondo, I haven't really taken a look at your kernel yet, but I recommend you take a look at the OWL project kernel, as well as Luzifer1984's forks. Might help you gain some insights into rom features and functionality for the future.
honestly, I'm really surprised nobody has forked OWL project's stuff and compiled all of it for the ChaCha yet. They even have an updated ClockworkMod, which if compiled correctly, should work with our device.
Seems their 10.1 roms are also stable, and most if not all features of the device work.

here's the link to their kernel: https://github.com/JDevs/OWL-Predator-KERNEL
and here's Luzifer's github page: https://github.com/Luzifer1984?tab=repositories
there's also Adlx's stuff, which has been very successful so far: https://github.com/adumont/htc-kernel-msm7227/

I'd really love to see a decent, fully stable, feature rich kernel with great battery life for the ChaCha.
As I said, I haven't tried yours out yet, but will definitely give it a look in the next few days!

Thanks. I'm not that into the trying to port or get things to be done in ChaCha for fun. I don't see the benefit of having the latest version of Android working just because I could be done. 2.3.5 and Sense does the trick and allows me to work with my phone.

I would like to have some external reports of success or failure with my kernel. I did it for myself but though others could also benefit from it -- if there is a benefit at all.
