WARNING: TRYING TO CUSTOMIZE YOUR VIEWSONIC MAY LEAVE THE DEVICE IN A BRICKED STATE. PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU FULLY UNDERSTAND HOW TO USE NVFLASH BEFORE TRYING THIS INCASE SOMETHING GOES WRONG AND YOU NEED OR WANT TO GO BACK TO THE VIEWSONIC STOCK TNT ROM.
What we offer here is a new way to keep you in full control of your tablet. Our 1.8 Honeycomb Kernel offers Speed, Reliability, and new added features. This kernel is a spin off of the Pershoot Honeycomb Kernel Source Code & want to thank Pershoot for all his work on the kernel already. You do not have to Flash your device or even update to a different ROM to feel the benefits of the Linux Box Solution Honeycomb Kernel...
Updating to the Linux Box Solution Honeycomb Kernel couldn't be easier. No wiping of User/Data is necessary. If you are already running a Honeycomb ROM then your good to go. This kernel was designed for Tegra 2, Harmony Board based devices. The LBS 1.8 Honeycomb Kernel has only been tested on a Viewsonic Gtablet. If any other developers with the Specified Tegra 2 & Harmony Board based devices wants to give this Overclocked Powerhouse a try please give me your feedback once you have tested it out.
