"After the arousing interest of my Paranoid users, I'm pleased to announce that the Paranoid kernel, now called Arrow Kernel, for our Galaxy S is now available to any kitkat based custom ROM!"

Code:
#include 
/*
 * Your warranty is now void.
 *
 * I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
 * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
 * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
 * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
 * you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.

Note: All kernel issues should be reported here, let's keep Paranoid thread clean of Arrow stuff. Thanks.
Note 2: This is made on free time and I have to work on 8-10 device variants apart of Galaxy S, please a bit of patience!

Will Arrow work on xyz ROM?
Test it, most likely it will.

What kernel does Arrow include?
Either CWM or TWRP, it's clearly stated on download file.

What is a md5 file?
If you already don't know you shouldn't worry about it. Only provides extra security that the file is not corrupted nor modified.

Can you add xyz feature?
Maybe, but if you can't wait everything is opensource. Feel free to pull request it!

I've seen you just pushed a commit but no new build... I wait it nao!
Keep calm and compile it yourself!

Compile... That's difficult...
1. Set your environment up following any xda how to.
2. repo init -u git://github.com/AOSPA-legacy/manifest.git -b kitkat && repo sync -j32
3. source build/envsetup.sh && lunch pa_galaxysmtd-userdebug
4. cd Arrow/ && source build_arrow_galaxysmtd
5. You're done! Wasn't that hard huh!

Originally the Kernel had around 370mb. So 395mb is the said amount of more RAM

Okay, let me set something clear. Our device has limited resources (aka 512MB RAM) and Android (via kernel) assures the needed RAM is allocated to vital parts before giving the rest of it to the user. Increasing user available RAM will lower system available RAM so things tend to misbehave. A clear example of that is CMA as you lower the hardware RAM allocation.

With this stated, I'll try to improve a bit the available RAM but sometimes we have limits, hardware limits...
