Q: How do I install this?
Flash the release in Odin.
Q: I have Linux or MacOS and Heimdall won't work, how do I install?
Samsung changed the partitions around, you need Heimdall built with the patch at https://github.com/teamhacksung/Heim...60f60c1e38a1ec
to flash a kernel. WARNING: If you use this to flash a kernel on an older device you may hardbrick! On older devices, BOOT was the PBL. On newer devices (I9300 and N80xx), it's the kernel!
Q: I want to return to the stock kernel after installing CWM and using this to reset the flash counter, how?
Q: I used the patched Heimdall above to flash a stock kernel and it triggered by flash counter, WTF?
This scared the crap out of me for a while. For some reason, on this device, Heimdall ALWAYS triggers the flash counter when flashing kernel (and probably recovery) - even if that kernel is a signed Samsung release. Flash using Odin instead, or extract the boot.img from the tar and
dd if=boot.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p5 bs=1024
on a rooted device
Q: Will this work on GT-N8010?
Untested on N8010 (Although one positive user report so far). If you try to use the IR on it, it'll probably crash since that device doesn't have IR.
Q: Will you support the GT-N8000 and GT-N8010?
I hate blind development - but N8010 should be easy. N8000 is harder, however espenfjo (another Cyanogenmod maintainer) did the bringup (defconfig and a first test build) - I have pulled his changes into my source, if you are an N8000 owner thank him for his help. Keep in mind, though, that as a Cyanogenmod maintainer, this kernel will likely stop being maintained once I have a reasonably reliable CM bringup on this device. It's here to serve as an initial reference for other kernel developers on building for this device, and, of course, resetting the flash counter.
Q: Why is wifi so unreliable?
Because Samsung put all sorts of hax in their source that aren't in their shipped kernels. Their shipped kernels seem to be far closer to the I9300 in this regard. The 8/25 release should fix wifi, as it pulls in the I9300 wifi driver.
