Hello! Here's an HTC DNA kernel with system write access based off HTC's 2.04.605.2 source. While system write is awesome for those without s-off, there are just a few other things some of us desire while maintaining stability of our DNAs. The most glaring thing to me was the horrible standby battery time on our stock phones. The issue is due to a wakelock of msm_hsic_host that prevents the phone from going into deep sleep. This absolutely kills standby time. I've put fixes into place to correct this issue. I'll likely be adding some additional features to this kernel, but I won't be going crazy. My main concern with this kernel is stability and good battery life, so if you're looking for a benchmarking kernel you should probably try a different one for now. Don't ask for release dates!

Installation:

You must be unlocked and rooted to install this kernel. The process to unlock and root are covered in other threads dealing directly with those tasks. If you are unfamiliar with Recovery Mode or fastboot, this modification is not yet for you and you should read up on those things first. There's always the potential that you may damage your phone with any system modification, and by installing and using this kernel you take full responsibility for any damage you may cause to your phone. Download the zip file for the version you want to install. This zip file should be extracted on your computer and contains a boot.img file that needs to be flashed in fastboot, as well as another zip file containing the modules which must be put on your phone's storage and installed in Recovery Mode. DO NOT INSTALL THE FULL DOWNLOADED ZIP FILE IN RECOVERY. After flashing boot.img and installing the modules zip file, make sure you wipe your cache and Dalvik (recommended with each update, too).

- None at this time

Thanks for the error message. Stupid Rapidshare changed the way permissions are handled and defaults to private now. Links should now be working, sorry!

Do we need to flash your modules if we're already on Stock Writable?

I'm showing max CPU is 1134. Did you throttle the kernel?

No. Using System Tuner Pro, I'm seeing cores go to 1.51Ghz just fine. Where are you seeing only 1134?
