Vivek Kernel For Galaxy Y - S5360
I am Compiling The kernel for Samsung Galaxy Y.First of all I have to say that I don't have this device.so You guys are my only hope to test the kernel.I have successfully Compiled my first kernel which do not contain any additional features.I was posting my kernel in the maroc-OC's kernel thread.Now that I was able to compile a bootable kernel I am starting this thread to avoid confusion among the users.
find kernel builds provided by Sir Vivek attached (below) to this post #4 (e.g. for direct download in TAPATALK and consecutive mobile flashing activities on the side of POWER USERS )
use SGYbiCWM.zip to flash Vivek's boot image , while being mobile !
use rapidshare to avoid captcha (for above, if poss)
installing some "boot.img" file is done always following the same procedure.
It's the same for Vivek and Merruk kernels.
please follow instructions (click here) for Merruk, just use Vivek file "boot.img"
which, in short form, sound like:
extract the boot.img file from Vivek file, using WINRAR or whichever unzipper
place boot.img file in the root directory of the sd-card, i.e. "/sdcard/" of your SGY phone
also copy SGYbiCWM.zip and CWM.zip into /sdcard/
boot into stock ANDROID SYSTEM RECOVERY (white menu text),
"UPDATE" choosing the CWM.zip
while in CWM now (yellow menu text),
"install zip from sd" choosing the SGYbiCWM.zip
display will be: "Kernel update OK"
reboot and you are done and have a new kernel.
use downloaded "cpu spy" app to verify which kernel you are on.
if you read "official.totoro@", then you are on a stock kernel.
if you read "vivek@.... " , you are running a vivek kernel
vivek features many governors & schedulers ! (follow test log on this, some are inactive)
if you flash "build V6" (find attached below) your phone will lose the settings of all apps, flash V8.5 (OR LATER versions) instead for keeping them
cool RECOVERY kernel "recov1"--->
tested by : Ynterstellar Yphone assemblY on Youngdroid YdeologY
