This kernel is a developmental fork of the CM7/AOSP and Sense kernel tree built by Imoseyon (leankernel). With his permission, I have started working on an alternative kernel that offers some extra functionality.
The goal of this project is to add things to the kernel that aren't, well, necessarily lean. As development progresses, I intend to keep to the spirit of Imoseyon's work (by being careful not to make this too fat), and any major fixes or changes to code that occurs in his source tree will be ported to this kernel.
ALREADY COOKED IN BY IMOSEYON
Since most of you already know of Imoseyon's work (if you don't, see the link to his thread above), and what his kernel is about, I won't go over all the minutiae from his kernel's development, but I will highlight:
Linux Kernel v22.214.171.124 with back-ported code nearly identical to 2.6.39.
Read-ahead buffer has been further increased for performance.
Death-Ray support was ported from Adrynalyne's CF kernel.
NFS (Network Filesystem) and CIFS (Common Internet File System, SAMBA replacement) support has been added.
Tunneling and TUN/TAP support have been added (required by OpenVPN)
System V IPC (SYSVIPC) has been re-enabled to address issues with broken dependencies in CM7.
As a general disclaimer, I do not accept responsibility for what may result from you flashing something I post. While I take every precaution and thoroughly test before I release, I cannot be to blame for catastrophic failure.
Flash in Recovery (Do NOT flash in Kernel Manager or ROM Manager).
GEE PEE ELL (GPL) AND USAGE
My source-tree can be found here. I have permission from Imoseyon to use his source for this kernel. In turn, I've given permission for folks to use my kernel in their ROMs as well. Consequently, if you use this kernel in your ROM, please credit both Imoseyon and myself for the work, and--while not required--a heads up if you're using it in a ROM would be appreciated. If you intend to use my source-tree for your own kernel, then you must get permission from both Imoseyon and myself.
I sincerely hope you find this kernel to your liking. If you find any bugs, or if you have questions or concerns, please feel free to let me know. Likewise, if there is a feature you would like to see added to this kernel, I will be happy to look into it.
don't bother using it...wifi does not work at all. It attempts to connect then disconnects. Just went back to the stock slayher kernal instead.
I dont think you should really be telling people what to try. unless it breaks it permanently, then let people flash whatever they want. he never stated it fixes everything in CM7 or that it was the god of all kernels. just something new. I can see posting a warning telling people that it doesnt work, but not just telling em to not even bother using it.
Some of you may have remembered a story on the Portal a few weeks back … more
