Here is a custom kernel based on the latest GT-N7100 sources for the Note 2. I've taken a lot of stuff out, so if you like playing around with changing 500 things on the kernel before you start using your phone, look somewhere else. It pulls in Voodoo Sound, Simple IO Scheduler, and Joe's Tiny RCU. I've also gotten rid of recovery over-write on boot and enabled adb root by default. It removes as much debugging stuff as possible, non-default CPU and IO schedulers, and Ext2 Support (Ext4 handles Ext2/3).
There is no overclocking support, overclocking is useless unless you're pumping up your e-peen. There is no undervolting support as it hasn't been shown to do anything useful on multi-core systems from everything I've seen. There is no init.d support as 90% of the init.d scripts are useless. It will continue using stock boot animations as well, though I'm sure it wouldn't be to difficult to make stock android boot animations work. That may even be possible without any kernel changes anyway.
The only issue I've run into is that exFAT SDcards may not work with it. I've been trying to figure out why, but it is slow going when I don't have an exFAT card to test with. If anyone would like to help fix it, flash and get me full dmesg and logcats. If you don't know how to get those, but still want to help, see my SDK Guide
for a general overview of what to do.
This kernel is built for TouchWiz ROMs, and should work on any available VZW ROM currently available. It works for both VRALJB and VRALL4 from my own testing, let me know if you have issues on a TW ROM and I may be able to fix it. For a download, see below. I also am not posting in original development because IMO, that entire forum is useless and confusing.
No worrying about exFAT (for now)
Attempt to get rid of hot boots or full reboots that some people experience.
Drop Voodoo Sound, go to Boeffla Sound
Increased SD Card read ahead for better performance
Enabled Car Dock Charger support
Actually enable the car dock charging support this time
Try and fix the lockups after long (>2 day) uptimes
Insignificant Config Change
Build for many new models
Make it so STweaks works, so you can use the new color controls
Update sources and ramdisk
exFAT SDCards do not work
