After building a CM9 kernel with some added features as part of my CM9-UNOFFICIAL-building, I decided to make a separate kernel topic: Mackay Kernel.

This kernel is based on stock CM9-kernel by pawitp.

Today's release will be the final ICS release! From today on I will start working on a JB kernel. First release may take a few weeks.

Because it is a final release, there will be 4 flavours:
-regular
-XLmem (396MB RAM, no 720p recording, 720p playback works)
-VC (Voodoo color)
-VC+XLmem


If you like a CM9 with the Mackay Kernel included, there is also MackayROM, which is an adapted CM9:

Changelog:

12 August 2012 - ICS_Final

Changelog
Additions since previous stable version:
s5pc110_battery: fix charging display for car dock
fix freeze when max frequncy is set to 800 MHz
fixed charging-autostart bug, now the device stays off, and powers on properly (thanks DerTeufel)
Updated to linux version 3.0.39

General features:
Build using the July Linaro toolchain
O3 optimization
Updated to linux kernel version 3.0.39
Mackay kernel bootsplash
Based on a single initramfs & using bootloop detection to prevent bootloops
Mackay recovery (based on CWM recovery v6.0.1.1)

Governors added:
SmartassV2 (default)
Wheatley
Optimized ondemand/conservative parameters

Schedulers:
SIO (default)

Added functionality:
Bigmem (384MB; XLmem of 396 available as well)
Adaptable vibration intensity (by setting /sys/class/timed_output/duty)
Improved SD-card read/write speed under windows
Call volume hack (using Settings>Advanced to set volumes)
Reduced battery polling interval

Credits:
-teamhacksung/pawitp for making CyanogenMod work on our ancient phone
-stratosk/DerTeufel/Mialwe for the inspiration I got from their kernels
-rootax for providing a high-speed server for high quality downloads

This kernel has some additions to prevent bootloops. However, if you get into a bootloop you can flash the kernel to be downloaded below with Odin (tar can be used directly) or Heimdall (the zImage should first be extracted from the tar file).

Goal is to have a basic kernel with some add-ons. There are some full-blown kernels for CM9 like semaphore/devil which give a lot of extras. But I like to keep it closer to stock (with no need for additional kernel apps), but still add a few extras.

Just flashed, working great. I guess we had a hole with a simple kernel after mialwe jumped to gs3, now it's full.

Hi Kasper,

Have been using your CM7 kang builds and they always worked smooth. I am really happy to see you making a "close to stock kernel" which i guess lot of people here would appreciate.

Best of luck n 3Cheers
