Team work for the T.E.A.M.
First of all, THANKS to everybody for their support in this attempt!
: I am updating this post with the results I got from testing all the custom kernels available, up to today.
It was an amazing ride and our developers have really produced great enhancements for our phones!
Also, let me note one more time, T.E.A.M ROM is stock ROM, so this review applies to any stock and stock based ROM (as long as there are no tweaks conflicting with the boot.img).
First of all, the apps I used to measure the kernels' features performance
and NoFrills CPU Control
(was a fan of SetcPU, but Nofrills is simpler and somehow I got over my Profiles obsession
1. [KERNEL] zKernel | 2.6.29 | for 2.3.3 stock ROM | 19/08/2011
This is an "old-time classic"! U MAD???
- latest SE sources
- FPS cap removed
- added extra frequencies
- in-call volume increased
- TUN/TAP support (VPN)
- CIFS support
- debugging disabled for improved performance
- enabled ThumbEE CPU extension
Performance and speed with the >998 frequencies are great,
but in my case the phone got too hot above 998 MHz.
In-call volume is increased and there's no distortion, which is very very nice!
There's no undervolt, so nothing to report there.
Overall, it's very stable, faced no problems while using it,
but wanted to try undervolt, so moved on to other kernels.
Of course, I know my device actually can handle undervolt, so if you
had bad experiences with undervolting before, this is definitely the kernel for you.
2. 2.3 Th_kernel_023.2
The latest kernel from 24/8 seems to pack some neat features,
but unfortunately got stuck at boot logo when I installed it,
so no review here.
I am sure ThJap will sort it out soon enough!
3. [KERNEL][X10] DooMKernel - "Power to The People" [Rel:v03d][Dt:26/08][FW3.0.1.G.0.75]
This is my personal favorite. The latest version, 03d, runs very very stable
on my phone.
The VDD controls are a great way to discover and use the best undervolting settings for your device!
I made a startup script and set the voltages to:
128000 Hz - 875 V
192000 Hz - 900 V
245760 Hz - 925 V
384000 Hz - 950 V
460800 Hz - 975 V
576000 Hz - 1000 V
652800 Hz - 1050 V
768000 Hz - 1100 V
844800 Hz - 1150 V
921600 Hz - 1200 V
998400 Hz - 1250 V
I use minmax governor and you can see what I personally feel about other governors here
With the latest update, ondemand and interactive seem to be fixed and lag has been eliminated,
but I am still testing.
All in all, what's important for you to know is that all the custom kernels work in this ROM!
You just need to flash the zip and then wipe cache and dalvik cache in xRecovery before rebooting.
As simple as that!
Don't be afraid to try, don't forget that you are as good as your last backup
and come here to report your experience with custom kernels!
In the T.E.A.M spirit, I will be updating this post with additions for the ROM from members!
1. Transparent Widgets by alzbac
Check them out, they match the transparency of the rest of the ROM.

More to come!
- Smaller in size ZIPs for download (as suggested by riginal
*Most probably the upcoming releases will be updates and not Full ROMs anyway,
but keeping the download sizes at minimum will be a priority
Colored Icons in the Statusbar for When-Connected-To-Google
(as suggested by slashfoo
- Battery Percentage Mod with working Reboot options (as suggested by Slothagus
- AppWidgetPicker implementation (as suggested by slashfoo
- Host the files for this rom on github
pvyParts: Sorry guys i will get on it. :P as i have to decompile everything and organise it a bit beter :P
- Add a 6th Icon on notification toggles for data on/off
pvyParts: working on the data enable/disable taking more time than i like
- Be able to configure notification toggles
pvyParts: not sure if thsi is "easy to implement" but will look into it soon.
Change the "POWER" key to "ENDCALL"
- Add "Take screenshot" to power menu (instead of xrecovery which would be a LOT less used).
pvyParts: hehe more framework mods, gotta love it. i will see if i can get it to work.
