[Kernel][ICS][Alpha]Driving Always For User Quality (5/27/2012)
Here we go - What I believe is the first custom kernel built from source for GT-N7000 ICS.
READ THIS POST INCLUDING KNOWN ISSUES BEFORE POSTING!
Driving Always For User Quality - DAFUQ!!!!
This is built by applying some small fixes to the GT-I9100 update4 source base so that the stylus and charger drivers build properly.
Source code is at: https://github.com/Entropy512/kernel...py_kernel_main
Initramfs git is at: https://github.com/Entropy512/initra...commits/master
It has been tested so far with Criskelo's XXLPY-based release, but should work with most other Touchwiz-based N7000 ICS releases. AOSP firmwares are not supported by this kernel.
They may boot and sort-of run, but no bug reports will be accepted if you're running an AOSP-based firmware. No bootloader flashing is required.
See my I777 ICS kernel thread
for now - it's built off of the same source base (but N7000 users should post here)
The one specific feature I should advertise here - This is built from I9100 Update4 sources. This appears to be the only source base so far for Samsung Exynos4 kernels that doesn't carry a high risk of permanent damage to your eMMC chip. (e.g. it should be safe from all of the nightmares people have encountered with ICS leaks here, however I cannot make any guarantees.)
- Some of you are used to kernels that autoroot a ROM for you - this one will not and never will especially now that two different Superuser packages exist. Flash SuperSU or Superuser in CWM, pick your poison.
- Camera preview is black
- Hardware accelerated video display is not working
- Because of these known issues, the primary use for this kernel is to reset the flash counter with TriangleAway (which DOES work on this kernel)
*so much sig updating needed*

An excellent post on "noobs vs. developers"
A few opinions on kernel development "good practices"
Note: I have chosen not to use XDA's "friends" feature - I will reject all incoming "friend" requests.
