I won't write long and fancy descriptions... I am planning to keep both kernel and the OP as clean as possible.

This kernel is for Xperia-T only and supports only Sony ICS ROMs for now.

FEATURES:
  • Autoroot
  • Some optimizations by cherrypicking from others & upstream
  • Some change-this-and-that kind of optimizations on governors
  • Some additional I/O Schedulers (sio, v/r)
  • Undervolting support
  • Overclocking support (192-1890MHz) with some modifications on thermal throttling to prevent overclocked values to be used during boot.
  • Custom CWM-based recovery with touch gestures (thanks to sk8erwitskil for the gesture support)
  • STweaks support (included in the kernel or from Google Play). it is an opensource app which generates dynamic UIs based on /res/uci.sh script interface and lets your set some kernel parameters easily. It will be auto-installed.
  • Fast-dormancy is disabled as default. You can enable it using STweaks.
KNOWN ISSUES:
  • Some STweaks settings are not effective
  • kernel needs some time to apply settings and you may feel some lag for the first 2-3 minutes. this will be fixed soon.
TODO:
  • cm10 support
  • Xperia TX support
  • dual-boot
  • more features...
THANKS TO: Codeworkx, Kali, all CyanogenMod contributors, sk8erwitskil, krabappel2548, Ninphetamine, Chainfire,... (please remind me if I forgot anyone)

Many thanks

I will test this on my rom and link it to the all in one thread.


Works fine ROM-Assaye

Touch recovery is excellent!

No vibration on prompt to recovery, but has purple LED, I would appreciate the vibraion back please.

Will test other feature in time.

Unexpected error in STweaks

I have not tested it on TX and that is why I wrote "Xperia-T only" to the first post.
also, make sure you read TODO..
if you use it on TX, use it at your own risk.

I haven't tested it on cm10 although I put some init files to the ramfs.
it will probably not boot on CM10 or anything based on that.
it is still on my todo, but will send you a message when I need it to be tested on an additional device.
