Hi all,
I'm glad to announce the first custom kernel and rom for YP-G1 - Galaxy S WiFi 4.0 EU and USA version
IMPORTANT NOTICE: DON'T TRY TO INSTALL ON A galaxy S wifi 5.0 player or a Korean Galaxy S wifi 4.0 => It will brick your device

IMPORTANT NOTICE: If you have a USA Galaxy player 4.0 install only the usa kernel. If you have an international Galaxy Player 4.0 you can install only the EU kernel or first the ROM and then the latest kernel.

Kernel changelog:

[CURRENT KERNELS]

STeVE's Kernel 3.0
-Based on STeVE's kernel 2.1
-Added all major cpu governors (interactive, interactivex, smartassv2, lazy). Interactive is now the default one for good responsivity
-Added all major I/O schedulers (sio,v(r),bfq,...). SIO is the default one
-Maximized SD card read speed with read ahead
-Init.d script support (Klin's patch)
-Overclock and undervoltage support

At default, no overclock is applied. Kernel is tweaked for good battery/performance ratio. If you want you can tune your parameters using SetCPU (available on market) or similar programs.

ODIN flash instructions:
1) Put your player in DOWNLOAD MODE (With the device powered off press simultaneously Power button, menu button and volume down button until a green android symbol appears)
2) open ODIN and connect your player via usb
3) in ODIN window select PDA and choose the packet tar you want to flash
4) Keep sure Re-Partition in unselected (OR YOU WILL BRICK THE DEVICE)
5) Press start and Wait the end of the procedure (don't disconnect the device until flashing is complete or you will brick the device)

Note: Please try this at your own risk. I will not be responsible for bricked devices

STeVE,

I have a player 5.0 wifi with the latest ota ki8 2.3.5 on it.

I have dumped the system got the pit and deodexed...zipaligned....batxh optimized....currently working in mods and and a custom theme...
Problem....i only have the device a few more days.
Question
Would you like to help me cwm the recovery for the zImage?
Nothing fancy
And I will mod the files for the recovery. I just need help with compiling and repacking.....i dont have the time to be guessing and playing.

Compiling recovery
I got kernel unpacking and repacking I think. But compiling rexovery has been a problem.

I don't know if it helps but maybe it don't work because it is not like the normal android devices because samsung devices use initramfs.
