I wanted to run slimkat, but I just want something smooth so I'm open to trying other things. The only requirement I have is that the kernal needs to be swapSD since my internal isn't working.
Also, I was trying to open to open the zip so I could convert it to tar and flash with Odin. Even if I try to directly flash the nearkernal.zip, it tells me its a bad zip.
Thanks for the help by the way, I really appreciate it!
