I'd like to test i9100 ROMs without using the Jeboo kernel but using the ones that came with the ROM. Please reply and tell me what's what.
You could run an i9100 rom with their kernel, but certain things wouldn't work properly - buttons being one of them as you mentioned. You'd also run into microphone issues, which is one of the reasons why our "portable" kernels are called Mic-Swap. Forget using their kernels anyway, nearly all of them are no longer supported and our AJK
is better or just-as-good than any of theirs ever was, so why not use that one to port?
I would recommend you read up on porting before you actually flash any of their stuff, just so you know what to do/expect in the event of a bootloop or bad flash.
Good luck, and welcome to rom porting!
