What kernel is imilka's a repack of? Maybe it's an unaffected one. I recall seeing stuff in imilka's thread saying not to use its CWM.
Without source for the leak kernels it's impossible to tell what's changed and declare one kernel "safe" and another "dangerous" - as long as some are proven dangerous they should all be considered dangerous.
It was multiple different kernels, up to LP5 and LP6 even.
I understand the logic and respect your words of caution with what is most certainly from someone who has a much better understanding than I, I just feel it is the way the kernel was used/modified/implemented that caused the potential problems (by the devs), not the kernel itself. Based on the logic I provided earlier in the thread. I am not saying the problem still does not exist in the kernel, I have no idea, but it is obviously something that did not come out in many rom implementations, just those 2.
Agreed, very bad.
All I am saying is that it ONLY happened on those 2 botched kernel implementations. It is obviously SOMETHING the Dev's did with the kernel that caused this, seeing how ALL the other roms/versions clearly have not caused this. Since the result was immediate with both of those and many of us have jumped/cwm'ed/etc from MANY different Leaked kernel builds and NOT had that problem.
I am not trying to put them at blame, running any rom/dev is strictly at your own responsibility and risk, just stating that I don't think it is fair to place every leaked rom build in the same category of danger. Is there a risk, certainly, as the dev's could accidentally make said same mistake (I am not even clear if "we" know what causes it?) in a future version. That said I feel pretty confident that if the "final" versions of iMilka's roms were going to cause that issue, it would've happened by now. That is why I wanted to see if anyone had ever been bricked (fried eMMC) from them, and it seems, no.
