Hi

I'm always searching for other Kernels for the Glide but not every Kernel works with every phone, of course.
According to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Samsung_Captivate_Glide and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Samsung...odel_GT-I9100G the glide is based on the Galaxy S2 but I'm not sure which model name exactly (GT-i9100/9100G/i....?)

The question for me is would a Kernel for a "GT...whatever-the-best-matching-one-is" also work with the cappy?
Anyone having experiences or knowledge in that?

Maybe stupid or easy question but I have no idea. Of course I could try any of them but first of all-
which is the best fitting model number or is it totally not relevant maybe ..?

Thanks for any light

do you mean binary kernel? Or source with other config?
Galaxy r ( i9103) is 90% same with our phone, but binary kernel woldnt work. Source would work with some modification.

thx for the quick reply and the information about the model..!!

and yes binary would be the perfect match but when I understand you right that's a dream (that was what I thought but one can hope..)
