Installation Instructions:

Here's a step by step instruction to install this kernel:

************************** Ice Cream Sandwich (S-OFF ONLY) **************************
[ CFS ] (Ultimate Edition - should work with most phones but NOT GUARANTEED!)
The File ==> Amaze ICS Kernel <==
MD5SUM ==> <==

************************** Gingerbread **************************
[ CFS ] (Ultimate Edition - should work with most phones but NOT GUARANTEED!)
The File ==> Amaze GB Kernel <==
MD5SUM ==> <==


1. Copy file to SDcard
2. Reboot to CWM recovery
3. Flash the Zip file (if you noticed an error, Flash the same file the 2nd time)
4. Reboot, Done!

Easy Kernel Flasher Instructions:

1. download the above file (via phone directly or to a PC)
2. unzip to a folder then depends on PC or Linux
[ Windows ] open command prompt window and type Flash.bat
[ Linux ] open terminal window and type ./ (make sure permission is set to 755 for the
3. Let the script complete!

NOTE: Because the previous kernel included a Secured RAM Disk, so you may need to run the script twice. (Once this is done, then any subsequent flash should complete on the first time)

Note: After FLASHING, the first reboot may take longer than usual, please be patient... After the first reboot, it may lag during initial load (let everything finish loading). Once everything is loaded and phone is ready for use, reboot the phone a 2nd time and the lag will be gone and everything should be silky smooth...

[ Optional: ]

NOTE: if you come from a ROM with my kernel pre-installed, you DO NOT NEED to flash the reset kernels from above!

[ For Kernel Devlopers ONLY: ]

Optional Under voltage: Version 0.0.x+ ONLY

[ to over volt ALL frequencies by 25000 uv (microvolts) ]

Optional: Stock Clock Frequencies for Dual CPUs
echo 192000 > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_min_freq
echo 1188000 > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_max_freq

echo 1 > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu1/cpufreq/online
echo 192000 > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu1/cpufreq/scaling_min_freq
echo 1188000 > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu1/cpufreq/scaling_max_freq
Low Voltage - Under Volt the processor, therefore uses Less Battery, but NOT ALL CHIPS can handle Under Volt.. If you experience instability, try the Stock Voltage Version.

Stock Voltage - Uses the voltage values from ORIGINAL HTC Kernel Source.

There are NO PERFORMANCE DIFFERENCE between the Under Volted and Stock Voltage versions!

Please don't hesitate to talk among yourselves and help each other out... The XDA community is what inspired me to hack kernels for everyone since everyone here is nice and helpful to each other... Keep helping each other.... Famous proverb: It's better to give than to receive...

Hello and welcome faux.

I have your kernels on my G2X (DS OC/UV) and family plan member's MT4G (stock).

I will be trying this as soon as the link is up. Will also be helping you to get the phone, but am traveling (back in CA) right now.

I like this device so far. Has the best camera and video cam I have tried so far.

Will be even better after HTC drops the source - it needs AOSP/Cm7(?)/Miui real bad.

Xboarder (all 16 years) has been doing all the heavy lifting so far, so your coming over here - especially with respect to kernels, is a very good thing.

Faux123 it's so great to see you over here in the Amaze forum, loved your great work over on the MT4G. Hope to see the bounty take off so you don't have to dev blind.

I am not sure how to find that out. There had been a thread on the partition layout of the Amaze, but now can't find it.

New thread in General says Amaze source just dropped - will that show it?

but maybe this will help

Amaze Enhanced Kernel with JRCU is OUT.. Check OP for link and check 2nd post for change log for this initial BETA.

WARNING: THIS IS A BLIND BUILD, please keep this in mind when flashing this kernel. This kernel is stock @ 1.512 GHz with NO OC and NO UV enabled. Once I get my hand on the hardware and TEST the OC/UV myself, I will add those capabilities to this phone.

ALSO this is BASED ON T-MOBILE kernel source. I realize there's a separate Telius source and I WILL MERGE the two together as 1 unified kernel but again I will reserve it until I have the hardware in hand.

Thank you Faux. Will SetCPU work for underclocking?

Just tried installation and received error: assert failed:
write_raw_image (" /emp/newboot.img", "boot")
E:Error in /sdcard/download/
(Status 7)
Installation aborted.
