Update: New version 7.06 (UCKK4) from Samsung I897 source code.

UCKK4 kernel with Voodoo sound and color, BLN, 1200 mhz overclock, custom CwM 5, init.d, root, custom boot animation support, fully working nandroid, rfs/ext2/ext4 formatting, multiple tweak options and more!

No more Voodoo lagfix. Reformatting functions are contained in a new custom-modified CwM Recovery. Ext4, Ext2, and RFS formatting options are available for /system, /data, /dbdata, and /cache together and individually. Su / Superuser installation is available from within Recovery for un-rooted ROMs. Kernel tweaks are also available from within Recovery, as well as support for init.d scripts and sysctl.conf.

You can flash this over any supported partition scheme. Select OC, scaling governor, i/o scheduler, etc. in Recovery. Download BLN app from Market to control BLN, Voodoo Control app to adjust sound and color, and Voltage Control for under-volting (not recommended unless you know what you're doing). Please do not use Tegrak for this... the frequency table in this kernel is of a different design than that in Talon, Semaphore, etc.

Quote:

--- IMPORTANT ---

Please consider this somewhat experimental. It was a major pain to track down and piece together the missing parts of the source code, and should be considered a work in progress. Version 6.03 (repackaged stock kernel) is still available and reliable.

You might want to back-up and remove any shell scripts you have in your /system/etc/init.d folder until you have flashed this and can verify that they
are compatible and/or needed.

NEW - NEW - NEW: Version 7.0A is for those who have experienced reboots or want a basically stock kernel with BLN, Voodoo Sound, SIO and SmartassV2. No overclocking, Voodoo Color, TinyRCU, advanced ext4 driver, or other code modifications... just straight Samsung code. If you want overclocking, use Tegrak loadable module (paid version?) to provide that.

Please use this guide for reporting problems

You should mention that this kernel will not work with ki2 roms.....

Start Odin, pull the battery, reinsert it, hold vol up/vol down together (don't touch power button) and plug in your usb cable. Should enter download mode.

You should be able to.
If you have gb bootloaders then;
remove the battery
put it back
plug in the usb cable while holding both volume buttons.
