TalonDEV is an i9000 reoriented kernel for use with I9000 Samsung Gingerbread Roms (JVQ-JVR-JVS-JVT..etc..)

This is for the Captivate ONLY, the i9000 version can be found HERE

This kernel is still in a heavy development stage! So there may be bugs!! (hence the DEV tag)

Current Co-Devs - Kodos96,Ytt3r & zacharias.maladroit
Special Thanks to Xcal (for the reorient)
Make sure to support these devs, if it was not for them, Talon would not eXistZ

As always, flash at your own risk, im not responsible for any damages!]

Talon Source can be found on Github and Google Code

Stay up to date with latest changes on Twitter

Remember, I cant fix stupid or lazy. Please read the whole OP and the first and last 5 pages of this thead!


Custom Boot Animations
The needs to be /system/media/ <- notice the name change

CIFS Support
Make sure you point to "/lib/modules/cifs.ko" instead of "/system/lib/modules/cifs.ko", it is NOT a
symlink as "/lib/modules/" is actually part of the ramdisk and is a seperate directory.

Logcat Instructions
To enable/disable Logcat, type "logcat-enable" or "logcat-disable" in a terminal emulator and reboot

Lowmemorykiller Settings
Talon kernel includes Kodos96's "LMKSet". You can adjust the PRESET=X value in /etc/ram.conf ..
The presets are listed in the file, recommended settings are set by default. Reboot to take effect
Also make sure theres no "ramhack" scripts in /etc/init.d/ , if there is, delete it and reboot.

To install:
Copy zip to sdcard
Flash via CWM

Enable/Disable Voodoo Lagfix in CWM->Voodoo
Delete Voltage Control settings in CWM->Advanced

Voodoo Color:
With the new ported Nexus S framebuffer driver, we are now able to control
voodoo color via the Voodoo Control App..So if the screen is to yellow for your
liking, you can adjust the RGB multipliers to even it out.

Conservative Governor
Conservative is now a module, to load on every boot, dload file below and place in /etc/init.d/
make sure to remove the .sh at the end of the filename and reboot

Awesome! Thanks. I will upgrade to GB soon and was hoping you'd have a compatible kernel soon. I'm glad to see UV and no OC at this point. I think I am going to stop OC'ing since I never really need it. However, I do still UV since once I find the "stable" settings for my phone, it will only help. However, I am curious how "much" people think UV helps with battery life. If it isn't significant then I might just select very safe UV settings so I don't have to spend time testing and can adjust after seeing real usage. Opinions?
