first of all, big thanks to roggin and you for releasing this kernel. And of course to all the others who paved the way to this point.

i've created my own custom image tonight which is based on the .22 image (unfortunately the .30 download link was gone). So far it works and i'm happy for now.
But i noticed that the usb connection got interrupted after the screen blanked. I've never noticed this before (it might be that i haven't copied larger files so far, so probably that would happen with the default kernel as well).

Could it be that the power saving code turns off the usb connection ?

Can I flash over my stock acer rom? Or do I need to install a custom rom first?
At the moment I just need all the features this kernel offers.

Thanks
