This kernel will provide you the standard stock kernel and also includes TWRP recovery.



( disclaimer )

I AM NOT TO BE HELD RESPONSIBLE IF YOU DAMAGE YOUR PHONE

Using Odin to flash this kernel WILL increase your binary counter.


----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

( features )

- Team Win Recovery Project 2.2.1
- CIFS Support

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

( how to install using Odin )

1. Restart into download mode by pressing Power + Home + Vol Down

2. Start Odin, and flash the attached kernel as PDA.
Remember to extract the attached file only once. if you end up with a kernel.bin.md5 you extracted twice!

Do not use the PIT, do not have any options checked except for "Auto reboot" and "F. Reset Time"

3. Wait for the device to reboot



( how to install using DD )

This method does not increase your binary counter, but your phone needs to be rooted so you can perform this!
IF YOU'RE NOT FAMILIAR WITH DD I RECOMMEND YOU TO AVOID THIS METHOD

1. Extract the attached file twice. You will end up with a kernel.bin.md5 file

2. Put the kernel.bin.md5 file to /sdcard

3. Start adb shell

4. Do the following commands:
Code:
$ su
# dd if=/sdcard/kernel.bin.md5 of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p15
# reboot
5. Wait for the device to reboot.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

( special thanks )

- Team Win for creating this awesome custom recovery.
- @Chris41g for starting the TWRP port.
- @hackbob for helping with the kernel issues.

You can download the package and extract the kernel.bin.md5.
While building it's generated as zImage and after renamed to kernel.bin and md5ed for Odin

Well actually, that is not what I need because kernel.bin.md5 contains initramfs which is known as ramdisk usually. But I only need kernel i.e zImage which I am planning to repack to boot.img

Correct me if I am wrong

Yep you are right, sorry for the misunderstanding.

I can build it (from Github) for you without the ramdisk but I'm not sure it will work correctly without the driver added from the ramdisk to the kernel image during the build.

Just to be sure...
I'm trying to compile cm7 and the intrafms are added with the kernel while building the boot.img, because in the intrafms that we are adding to kernel image we are basically adding the modules for wifi,bt, etc...

You sure you don't need them?

Ok can you do that, test it and report back ASAP?
This is needed before I release my ROM
btw I think we should move on to main DEV thread
Post your next reply over there

Well actually I am trying to avoid that because I have no experience in kernel development
