loaded on Cm9 of May 8th this morning using Odin and still working fine after 14 hours no problem, except for the missing instructions that I had to figure out miself.

Now my question, and maybe this is stupid: what WAS the reason people got bootloops? 'cause I don't think I saw an explanation anywhere .....

tx in advance and best regards,

LOL because of this --> *dentist*, eh? that's alright, you don't have to tell us her name ...

Personally, I believe some people who flash on CWM with their USB cable plugged in that got the bootloop problem. I've never had any bootloop when flashing custom kernel. And I did try (once) switching between kernels, no bootloop.

And you can see how many people on CM9 thread say that they got into bootloop when flashing CM9 ROM (with their USB cable plugged on).

I flashed the newest nightly build coming from CM9 with mnics kernel also no bootloop.

The only time I got bootloop (since using ICS) is when I flash theme.

So how about writing up a well structured, detailed step-by-step guide about the usage of Odin in order to flash a custom kernel?
This way you could help others that run into similar problems with your experience in production and documentation :)
And finally, what you missed in the OP of this kernel would be fixed by yourself.

I never flashed with the usb cable plugged in and those bootloop issues quite often. But let's not fill this thread with bootloop stories ;) There's an extra thread only about this problem.

I give up explaining this. There's a post about 2 pages back which explains why I will not do what you just suggested.

You can open a thread and do this if you want, no problem.

Now I'm getting really angry. I missed a detailed explanation about how Odin works and I can fix it myself this way ???

Before I have to go to work, some Initramfs info as requested (this is copied from our sources):

# CM9 currently uses an init system with two separate initramfs
# images which are packed into the kernel image at compile time.
# During every boot process the needed initramfs image (recovery
# or Android) gets extracted and the boot process continues using
# the freshly extracted initramfs.

We are not sure but we thought packing and extracting separate boot images for recovery/normal boot images at every boot could be the reason, maybe something goes wrong withing this process. So we decided to build an initramfs/init that does *not* have to unpack initramfs images at every boot. I'm not sure about it but until now I did not see new bootloop reports.

I think you misunderstood Fenvarien post. I believe his post was a response to jacobuscuracao. It was not meant for you....

Mialwe, you completely misunderstood my intention - I tried to support your position! I answered to Jacobuscuracao's posting. Please - read my text again without anger :)

I tried flashing midnight on the latest CM9 nightly with Odin too (usually I take Heimdall).
Odin works flawlessly and I encountered no further problems with the modules folder.

So sorry Fenvarien, really, really sorry.

Yes, I completely misunderstood your post. That happens if I'm angry anyways and just dont read the text you quoted and then write too fast.
I'm really sorry and apologize for this.

Not a good day today, now I'm waiting for the next bad thing to happen, started this morning, continued at work and now I'm waiting...

Kudos for being such a gentleman!

(I'm having one of those days too. One of my main work tools, a really expensive bass guitar, fell over from its stand and its neck cracked. Later I spilled a cup of coffee on my keyboard. Great. So you're not alone!)
