ZRAM and SWAP support
As stated in changelogs since the 4.2 stable version this driver is activated by default. To see how it's running you can use adb or terminal emulator: type
and you'll see swap paging.
To deactivate at next boot: you need a root explorer (i suggest ES File manager, free on playstore) and create a new file called ".noswap" in system folder, reboot and zram will not longer work. To reactivate delete the file above and reboot again.
Note: Users of SpeedWizz II (if anyone left ) can use the app to download the OTA content.
The kernel can be installed from recovery CWM or by using Odin.
If you download the zip version of CWM reboot into recovery and select install zip from sd card. Reboot and enjoy!
If you download the Tar archive, reboot your device in download mode. Start Odin as administrator (if you use Winblows 7 or Vista) and select PDA. Choose the tar archive and connect the device. Click on start and wait the magic, then remove the cable when the device restarts. Now you can enjoy ..
I am not responsible for damage caused by flash the kernel or to damage caused by YOUR negligence in performing editing operations of the terminal.
This kernel, although based on the samsung official sources, it is not an official binary and as such will be recognized by bootloader: that means by installing it you have lost your warranty.
We are adults and vaccinated and are conscious of what we do, if you're not or you have any doubt, DO NOT flashate do this nor any other kernel.
That is the history of speedwizz kernel, as well as to help out because reading a changelog is always good thing, in this case serves as a reminder to me ...
I started with a good base kernel (SpeedMod for the hardcore) but virtually stripped of all the features we are used to, even the most simple (eg bootanimation) .
I can guarantee that for a noob like me has been (and will continue to be) a tough battle ....... Huge thanks to all the developers, i am learning so much from you.
Changelog Latest version 4.2 stable build
(from version 4.1 beta2)
- New configuration file: speedwizz_defconfig
totally abandoned def_config derived from SpeedMod, the kernel continues on its path already since several versions before this
- Updated the cross-compiler to Linaro Toolchain 4.7 (08-2012)
The result is a general optimization of the code which results in less consumption of resources and greater stability.
Seeing is believing.
- This build fixes several compilation warnings and for several I mean about thirty
the warning message is a message from the compiler, it is not a fatal error (in fact, the compilation went fine) and if it's about an uninitialized function can sometimes affect the stability of a program (the kernel is a set of programs written mostly in C language) .
Most of the warnings that have at compile time are caused by variables or functions not used.
Obviously, the biggest advantage in NOT have this kind of warnings is that less code "dead" is inside a kernel than fewer resources will use the kernel to perform their tasks and the kernel will be more powerful in terms of fluidity and stability.
In any case i will consider a warning as a bug (generally speaking) even if minor, or even if it is not perceptible by the user.
- Added NSTools
You can use this app to configure all the parameters that are managed by the user, OC, UV, BLN, startup scripts, etc. ..
- Improved support to init.d
Now you will create a special folder init.d if it is not present in the rom (as in the case of the stock rom), if it exists this will not be touched and will be activated only support to run parts.
- Cleaned up some scripts in the initramfs
many things were unnecessary and linked to the use of extweaks (since the initramfs kernel are derived from Siyah kernel), which as you know is not supported by the kernel
- Added support to form Zram and Swaps
Enabled by default but can be disabled by the user through simple instructions.
The use of zram is to use a portion of RAM allocated compressed in a single device, in the specific case of this kernel with a capacity of 300mb and allocated in the ram itself, with a compression ratio of about 50%, for a total of about a gig of ram total between real and tablet.
The main advantage consists in maintaining applications in cache (non-active) for a period longer than normal, with a consequent advantage in the experience multitasking.
Changelog Latest version 4.1 beta2
(from version 4.0)
- Improved support for the following categories of Rom (this list includes only those in which the kernel has been tested for a long time, I suggest you proceed with caution, however, since it is a beta version)
1. ICS 4.0.4 Samsung
2. ICS 4.0.4 AOSP (CyanogenMod 9 - AOKP)
3. ICS 4.0.4 MIUI
4. JellyBean 4.1.1
All credits for this to Gokhanmoral, without his initramfs this was not possible!
- Fixed the autorotation bug on AOSP roms
- Modified (and fixed) the install script that caused trouble (severe) at boot: the ROM AOSP did not install the root of it (fortunately do not need it), it cwm manager.apk and even libraries for the BLN
- Fixed the driver cypress-touchkey.c for the proper functioning key illumination touch with AOSP rom and its function BLN.
- Fixed some warnings from the cross compiler

Too good this new kernel.
Performing the test since launch, super stable and battery consumption above average.
I just have a question, what is the best program to control compatible kernel.
I used Voltage control, but would like to use some other better if any??
OMG! I have started to cry reading this post, FINALLY someone brave enough to give this kernel a shot! Well done bro! Enjoy....
Ehm, seriusly, if you want you can use Nstools as well (and better): can control all the parameters that kernel provide plus it is a good alternative to BLN pro (to set the lost call service when enabled BLN)
