Ok, this will be another fun.

Again, my first attempt (like FroyoBread and GingerDX!) to build a custom Linux kernel for a phone. I've just found some free time this weekend This time, this is a kernel. Again, you can guess it's a Linux kernel having my customized features. We will gradually see what can be done

The main goal is to have a fast, smooth, lightweight kernel with special features.

This Linux kernel is based on our great FreeXperia Project (Jerpelea) kernel. Thank you for your unbelievable contribution for our Xperias. I still use racht's great compiling machine for this project. Thank you racht.

  • Linux 2.6.29
  • Default GingerDX logo
  • X8Gesture / AX8MT for (fake) dual touch
  • ext 2/3/4 support
  • FXP's merged minmax / smartass / smartass V2 governor
  • netfilter / iptables
  • swap. NOT recommended.
  • MDDI fix
  • Brain **** Scheduler

Known bugs
  • None (?)


Install instruction
1. Download
2. Turn off the phone
3. Run flashtool
4. Press Flash, choose downloaded file
5. Turn on phone while pressing back button
6. Wait till progress finishes
7. Unplug the phone, turn it on back
8. Enjoy.

1. This kernel is tested by me only on GingerDX. I don't test with other ROMs, so it is only supported if you are using GingerDX. (Perhaps this will change in future, but not now)
2. This kernel is written for E15i. I don't have E15a, so if you have problems with E15a, I cannot help.
3. This kernel is in development. It may contain bugs. If you have bugs (reboot, something not working, etc...), post it here. Don't send me PM for technical problems. I will not answer most of technical PMs
4. Incompatible with FXP ROM. Wifi will not work on his ROM.
5. Source: it has been on github for a long time but how come I forgot to put the link here @[email protected]

Thanks go to the_laser, jerpelea, racht, nobodyAtall, zdzihu, Bin4ry and lots of other contributors...

Can this be flashed on top of gdx ROM or we need to do it from stock ROM?

Thanks, doixanh, you're the man! Although i'll keep my paws away from my bootloader for a little longer until all this custom kernel thing settles down
Keep up the awesome work!
