Hi all! It's being a long time that i haven't released nothing on XDA, due to lack of time and other reasons....
Now i come back with a completely new creation, a custom kernel for I9100, designed to be fast, light and also battery friendly at the same time (difficult to do eh)!

NEW LOGO AND BANNERS BY zantekk!! THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!



The lightest kernel for I9100 ever made (only 4.3MB without additional initramfs compression!!)

ONLY FOR SAMSUNG-BASED ROMs (NO AOSP, NO Cyanogenmod, NO MIUI, NO ICS, neither samsung one)

ONLY FOR INTERNATIONAL I9100!!

NEAK CONFIGURATOR APP: What is that?
FREE ----> PRO PAID ---->
Quote:

The new NEAK CONFIGURATOR APP is now available into both ANDROID MARKET and YAAM (Yet Another Android Market)

THIS APP IS MADE BY SIMONE201 AND NRK_2K (member of near team)

It is a useful app to help people use the special customizable features of NEAK kernel, without going into recovery.

It now includes also the NEAK Downloader, useful to download the NEAK OTA Updater app!

The new CONFIGURATOR PRO will also allow you to have full control of every NEAK feature!!

For more infos, read this wiki: http://code.google.com/p/neak-kernel...torApplication
And that one for PRO: http://code.google.com/p/neak-kernel...onfiguratorPro

There will be also a PRO app, paid on the market, still under development!

Please help us with a DONATION to sustain the costs of the android market!



NEAK OTA UPDATER: How it works
Quote:

THE NEAK UPDATER CAN BE DOWNLOADED ONLY WITH THE NEAK CONFIGURATOR APP!! (section downloader)
Run it, and let it download the new NEAK OTA Updater app, that will be auto installed easily

Every time there will be any updates, u will be advised by the app itself, or just push CHECK NOW to see if there are updates!

Is fully based on GingerMod Updater, with some mods to be kernel compatible and to have full support for CWM5 flashing

If an there is an update, just click on DOWNLOAD and when the download is finished the app will ask to reboot to recovery now or later....

If you choose later, then you can go to the app section EXISTING and flash the downloaded zip from there!


NEAK OTA UPDATER: Extras
Quote:

To let the EXTRAS part available, do this:

MENU BUTTON ----> Configuration ----> Extra Update Settings ----> Manage Extra Servers ----> MENU BUTTON ----> Update Featured Extra Servers

The NEAK Extra server will appear, then you will be able to update the EXTRAS part and see the new amazing extras additions for NEAK KERNEL!!



SOURCES FOR NEAK OTA UPDATER: https://github.com/simone201/neak-ota-updater

SOURCES FOR NEAK CONFIGURATOR FREE: https://github.com/nrk-2k/NEAK-Configurator-App

All my projects are ALWAYS open source!

Appreciate this wonderful kernel.

Just a quick question, you've already installed pre-defined GPU/CPU and Voltage tweaks?

Voltages and frequencies are as close to stock as possible....no aggressive settings, don't worry!
Are all configurable via Voltage Control!

CPU Voltage is set by CPU ID, and then u can change to whatever u want...
For GPU i have only lowered min default frequency and voltage to save some battery, but is rock stable!
