[Kernel][Custom]Compact kernel for Galaxy Pocket DUOS
Sorry i wont be doing any more development as i lost my files and i dont even have a samsung phone anymore. So, i'll be closing this as there is no point to keep it open. Please PM me if you want to continue this or have any questions.
This is the first dedicated custom kernel for Samsung Galaxy Pocket "DUOS"
.. As there were users who wanted to have atleast a kernel with firewall support & basic features.. I have started to build this kernel..
I made this kernel from source code provided by Samsung "Opensource.samsung.com" For Galaxy Pocket Duos Device.. source file "GT-B5302_GB_Opensource.zip" .Please read this whole post before you install this kernel in your device.. Source code link is in my signature.
PLEASE NOTE: I DONT HAVE THIS DEVICE. So i cant test it myself. I am not responsible if your device bricks. If you got soft brick please read 4th post of this thread.
Also i need info of whats working and whats not in the report.. you can ask how to install if you dont know in this thread. and I will help you / someone will help if not me.
