This kernel is based on Semaphore Kernel by stratosk with a few changes I felt to be missing in Semaphore.

This kernel combines the speed and stability of semaphore along with few additions for the best combination.

It is compatible with all KK 4.4 ROMs based on official CM10.2 layout.
Kernel versions 3.3.0 and lower are compatible with JB 4.3.x.
Kernel versions 2.9.0 and lower are compatible with JB 4.2.x.

Differences with Semaphore

General Features


Thanks to
Stratosk for his source and help
All people on stratosk's list

Point to note
In S Version , Hugemem Libs must be flashed for 720p record to work
In both versions , ticking bigmem will break 720p recording.
Tar version must be flashed with Odin/Heimdall , zip with CWM/TWRP.

I expect to get more features in the differences soon, including ISO CDROM functionality , normal OC ( upto 1400MHz ) and other features.

This build will be updated when stratosk makes new version , or when I have lots of new additions.

All bug report of this kernel must be posted in this thread , please do not disturb stratosk regarding this kernel.

Please use it at your own risk! I am not responsible for any damage that may occur to your device.

Can you explain about the xz compression & arm... that meanings?

ARM Coresight is a tool used to debug and trace issues in ARM based processors. It unnecessarily adds a load to the CPU , so I disabled it.

For XZ Compression you can read it here - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xz

I once asked Stratos why he doesn't use xz, and he told me that he uses a better compression method. Anyways, good job and have fun with further development of your kernel!

Thanks for the info . I will try both and decide then.
I am going to upload build which will change the name of the kernel to something else, as stratosk doesnt want the name Semaphore in the kernel.
