This is for the Captivate ONLY, the i9000 version can be found HERE
This kernel is still in a heavy development stage! So there may be bugs!! (hence the DEV tag)
Current Co-Devs - Kodos96,Ytt3r & zacharias.maladroit
Special Thanks to Xcal (for the reorient)
Make sure to support these devs, if it was not for them, Talon would not eXistZ
As always, flash at your own risk, im not responsible for any damages!]
Talon Source can be found on Github and Google Code
Stay up to date with latest changes on Twitter
Remember, I cant fix stupid or lazy. Please read the whole OP and the first and last 5 pages of this thead!
Custom Boot Animations
The bootanimation.zip needs to be /system/media/sanim.zip <- notice the name change
Make sure you point to "/lib/modules/cifs.ko" instead of "/system/lib/modules/cifs.ko", it is NOT a
symlink as "/lib/modules/" is actually part of the ramdisk and is a seperate directory.
To enable/disable Logcat, type "logcat-enable" or "logcat-disable" in a terminal emulator and reboot
Talon kernel includes Kodos96's "LMKSet". You can adjust the PRESET=X value in /etc/ram.conf ..
The presets are listed in the file, recommended settings are set by default. Reboot to take effect
Also make sure theres no "ramhack" scripts in /etc/init.d/ , if there is, delete it and reboot.
Copy zip to sdcard
Flash via CWM
Enable/Disable Voodoo Lagfix in CWM->Voodoo
Delete Voltage Control settings in CWM->Advanced
With the new ported Nexus S framebuffer driver, we are now able to control
voodoo color via the Voodoo Control App..So if the screen is to yellow for your
liking, you can adjust the RGB multipliers to even it out.
Conservative is now a module, to load on every boot, dload file below and place in /etc/init.d/
make sure to remove the .sh at the end of the filename and reboot

Now CWM flashable!
NOTE Zip will wipe cache/dalvik cache during flash, so first boot will take longer
352MB versions break 720p video recording
TalonDEV 0.5.1-RC1 340MB and BIGMEM
TalonDEV 0.6.0.1 340MB and BIGMEM NEW OC APP!
NOTE Make sure you are using BusyBox v1.17 or 1.19 before flashing, as
v1.18 (as most roms use), does not have runparts and scripts will not work
