This rules that this has been ported, as I use the PhilzTouch on my Galaxy Tab2. I even donated a few $$ to him!

One question, with the shared kernel "feature" of the T, how did you avoid having it revert back to stock CWMrecovery anytime one flashes a new ROM?

Regardless, I'll try this out tonight.

Hey i always wanted this to get ported! Im using the leaked 4.3 rom and it does work but it only boots into the recovery everytime. Is this a bug or is there a way to fix this?

It will be repacked into other kernels later...

So how do I go about installing this?

Is it as simple as boot the "T" into flashboot mode and running

fastboot -i 0xfce flash boot philz_touch_6.09.3-mint.img

But I'd rather not blow away my phone if this is wrong.

Is there a trick to using PhilzTouch on the T to avoid the shared kernel?

I installed it via "flashboot boot philz.img" and at first glance, it seems to work the same as on my Galaxy Tab 2.

But then it turns out that its not really useable.

a) I was unable to boot back into my normal ROM. Rebooting always brought it back to PhilzTouch.
b) Even if I could have found a way to boot my phone, it turns out that PhilzTouch recovery was overwritten by the stock recovery as soon as I installed a newer CM nightly which I tend to do nightly.

How to install this recovery?
fastboot flash boot boot.img gives me each time a reboot in recovery
fastboot flash recovery boot.img gives me an error.
Anyone got this working?
