OK, i know what you're thinking, "Another kernel for the Vibrant?" But this is my very first kernel development project so bear with me. This is just a project i've been working on since summer started, just to see if i can do it, learning experience. If you don't like it, you don't have to use it so please no flaming....and as always:
I (NOR TEAM WHISKEY) WILL NOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE CAUSED TO YOUR PHONE BEFORE, DURING, OR AFTER FLASHING THIS. PLEASE READ ALL NOTES AND WARNINGS, FOLLOW DIRECTIONS, MAKE A NANDROID, HAVE ODIN READY, AND FLASH AT YOUR OWN RISK!!!


Features: (NEW IN V2.2)
-FPS cap completely removed (should help with you 3D gamers)
-More EXT4 patches
-Removed unnecessary code in patches
-Some debugging removed (should help with battery life & speed)
-Went back to stock voltages from v1, but still user configurable (to bring back stability)
-Now available in Kernel Manager app in the market.
------------------------v2.1----------------------------------------
-Retweaked HZ values, should now be as smooth and responsive as v1 was
-Added Juwe's RAM optimization script into flash package
-Added pieces of SpeedMOD
-Fixed a few bugs in Makefiles
--------------------------v2-----------------------------------------
-Voodoo Sound v10
-New Skull splash screen
-Compiled with optimized compiler flags (thanks drhonk)
-Added "Interactive" governor
-Added "Smartass" governor from DragonMODz (thanks ECOTOX)
-Screen Off profiles working on 400/100 with and/or without setCPU using Smartass
-Retweaked voltages table, -25UV across the board
----------------------------v1--------------------------------------------
Voodoo lagfix
Voodoo sound v9
Voodoo color
BLN = Back Light Notifications
LowMemoryKiller patch
Modified Kernel HZ value from 260 to 500....for smoothness and responsivness
TinyRCU
BFQ I/O scheduler (set to default)
CFQ removed
Battery polling values modified (an attempt at saving batt life)
JHash3 patch
EXT4 patches
Modified FPS (Increased, not removed)
333MB Ram Hack
User configurable OC/UV
Safe booting to 1ghz
Overclockable to 1.2 ghz
Avatar confirmed working with this and Bionix NextGen V2



Notes:
1. After flashing this and rebooting, let the phone sit for a few minutes, before doing stuff. It will be alot smoother,
trust me.

2. This safely boots to 1ghz, but use an app like Voltage Control or setCPU to UV/OC to meet your needs.

3. If using Smartass as the main gov, DO NOT USE A SCREEN OFF PROFILE. After extensive testing, Screen Off profile is NOT needed if using Smartass as main gov (Smartass can handle it, if your phone can handle Smartass)

4. Not all phones can handle the Smartass gov, if this is the case, just switch the the Conservative gov again.

Are you going to make a GB kernel because right now there is only one, it is a great kernel but there is only one.

Good job, man! I'm coming from Bali and I have to say that this is really responsive and snappy! Bali would freeze up every so often, but I'm not having any issues with this so far. It'll be interesting to see how much battery life it'll get.

I'll post later with my experience with it. I'm liking it so far though

I prefer SetCPU for its user-friendly interface and settings, but if I have to, I'll download Voltage Control for this.
