Hey BAM, actually I am building my own kernel(Right from scratch)
Have added basic features till now.
I am having this strange issue, whenever I change mkcompile_h the phone doesn't boot! I saw in your commits that you have modded it and it works fine on your kernels.. Any work around?

Also any difference between eng defconfig and user defconfig?

1) compile out of the "git" folder

2) make sure that the final kernel version string is same as stock

3) dont remember abt the defconfigs u can refer to the ones at my git repo

What exactly are you changing?

Concerning the defconfigs, the main diffference is that CONFIG_SAMSUNG_KERNEL_DEBUG_USER is not set in the user_defconfig.

The defconfig has changed and there has been added one more fix to the ramdisk => Beta 12 and beta 12rc6 are not identical.

Yeah you are right, as soon as I synced sources to github my kernel stopped booting.. Maybe that was the issue...

I just changed..

Code:
echo \#define LINUX_COMPILE_BY \"`whoami`\"
to

Code:
echo \#define LINUX_COMPILE_BY \"Adi_Pat\"
and Device stops booting.. At first, looked like some **** up done by Samsung in the fsr module.. Even LOCALVERSION can't be changed in the config.

Add this commit as a workaround or keep your git directory and working directory separate. Made the same mistake when I first used github and DooMLoRD saved me

Thanks both of you!
This saved me from total frustration , I had started from scratch three times

Now I'll finally be able to get this done

Will do it


EDIT: It worked! Thanks!

As much as I love this kernel, my GF has an issue using it, everytime she uses this kernel her phone ends up restarting to Language selection :\ I don't know what changed but it works perfectly fine for me. Here's the layout

Were both on XXKPU using v12

install from zip - This works fine for me, but not for her, for her it shows "no files" despite being files in there. I asked her to swap to ganesh's CFRoot and it works properly, she can install without issues

reboots- Doesn't happen for me, but strongly for her, every restart gets her phone into a "force close" issue with most apps.

Themes- both using the same ICS one on XXKPU, works perfect for both of us, no issues so far.

I don't know if the ramdisks are different or something has changed, but I can't find v9 anymore for her to stick to an awesome kernel such as this.

Try with a stock rom and a stock kernel. If it happens even with a stock rom, probably you have this problem: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1324452. I don't know if you read the whole thread (certainly the first pages ), but it seems an hardware problem.

@XDA_Bam
I'm sorry to bother you, but a noob here needs your help .

I cloned you git repo, adjusted the EXTRAVERSION in Kernel/Makefile, built the kernel (I used the same toolchain you used: arm-eabi-gcc (Linaro GCC 4.6-2011.11) 4.6.2), created the normalboot.img and flashed it. Unfortunately the phone is stucked at the Samsung Galaxy S screen.

Is there something wrong in what I did? I wanted to build a kernel because I wanted to try something, I never did before.
