Probably, but I didn't try it. Let us know how it works out.

Thanks Gary! Recovery is up and running and even made a nandroid. I located it to make sure everything worked (took a really long time). I see your framework zip wipes the dalvik cache and I was wondering if we have to wipe both caches before flashing the kernel? Thanks for your development! Much appreciated

What framework are you referring to? I try very hard to make the stuff I do "self contained", so if a cache should be wiped, it either gets wiped automatically, or there's a message displayed telling you to do it manually.

In context of this thread, there's no need to wipe any caches before installing this kernel.

Perhaps your question is in reference to something in another thread?

It was always a big suggested instruction on wiping both the cache and dalvik cache when installing roms and other things on my nexus s and vibrant so just thought it would be the same on my tablet

The framework zip I was talking about was the flashable zip you put together for the theme here in the development section.

A kernel is not a ROM, two totally different things and you don't need to wipe to install one. An easy explanation of the difference is a kernel is what runs the hardware (cpu, memory, etc.) and a ROM is just a UI (user interface).

With ROMs the general concensus on wiping is you need to do a full system wipe as well as wipe the dalvik cache if you are switching between ROMs, say from ROM A to ROM B but do not need to wipe if it's just an incremental update say ROM A to ROM A.1 unless advised to do so by the dev.

Awesome work Gary. If I had the knowledge to do this I would. Tab feels great.

Just glad to see some little development finally kicking off.

Glad you finally got things working.

Closed-source modules piss me off... Module versioning enforcement can get even some of the best devs (netarchy and I kept missing each other on IRC, it took a week before we figured out why his Infuse kernels wouldn't boot.)

Samsung is good about releasing kernel source in a timely fashion, but they SUCK at fixing broken source releases.

(Edit: WTF? They included BCM4330 source code in your release but NOT the Atheros 6k drivers?)

After lots of testing I do find its a little quicker! Don't know if its placebo but it sure feels fast. Nice work Gary. Recovery working great but the only odd thing I noticed was how long it took to do a nandroid backup. For a minute there I thought it froze up. All is good thought

Is there any way to get ad hoc WiFi support in this kernel?
