I'm taking a crack at building my own from the ground up for the epic (and to share if it does anything but crash and burn). It's been a while since I built my own kernel from complete scratch under linux, but I'm game to learn again.

So right now I'm about to checkout the source but I want to know which one is likely to be the best to use. For official builds, we're on 2.3.6, correct? CM9 is going off of 4.0.3 but they're off in the wild woods blazing the trail for us. I'm hoping for something a little better known.

Here's the options for 2.3, and I'm venturing a guess on 2.3.6_r1 but just want to confirm it.

Code:
 * [new tag]         android-2.3.1_r1_ -> android-2.3.1_r1_
 * [new tag]         android-2.3.2_r1_ -> android-2.3.2_r1_
 * [new tag]         android-2.3.3_r1.1_ -> android-2.3.3_r1.1_
 * [new tag]         android-2.3.3_r1_ -> android-2.3.3_r1_
 * [new tag]         android-2.3.4_r0.9_ -> android-2.3.4_r0.9_
 * [new tag]         android-2.3.4_r1_ -> android-2.3.4_r1_
 * [new tag]         android-2.3.5_r1_ -> android-2.3.5_r1_
 * [new tag]         android-2.3.6_r0.9 -> android-2.3.6_r0.9
 * [new tag]         android-2.3.6_r1 -> android-2.3.6_r1
 * [new tag]         android-2.3.7_r1 -> android-2.3.7_r1
 * [new tag]         android-2.3_r1_ -> android-2.3_r1_

Have you just tried to CD to the (cm7?) Kernel folder and run the compile sh file? This works fine for me...
