Hi, this is my first kernel, this based on the latest Ultima ICS kernel from riyal, with two minor tweaks
-now touchscreen reponse while swiping is 4px instead of 9px, so no more bumpy movements while draging items
-official "Sony Ericsson" boot logo

Information about the touchscreen problem (if you have not noticed it):
http://talk.sonymobile.com/thread/40474
the problem is present in latest FXP (but probably not in next's) and also in stock kernel ICS
The solutions was 99% done by nicklas lof, here:
http://review.cyanogenmod.com/#/c/22164/

Works in Stock ICS, 431 and 587, it should work with FXP releases too

Installation:
Flash kernel using fastboot
Flash original Riyal wifi Modules using CWM

Riyals kernel thread is here


I do not deserve any credits on this, I just moved a line in code to compile and changed logo.

Thumbs up New Kernel for PRO [MK16a/i]
Thanks dafsoftware

So just to clarify. Everything is the same as Ultima ICS Kernel v1.4 with the changes you made for the touchscreen precision and SE-X logo. The WiFi modules to flash are also of the v1.4 too right?

I'll try this when you confirm my query, as I am running on the Stock ICS MK16a 4.1.B.0.587 (US) build. I'll try to post any issues that I come across after flashing

MK16a Rooted, BL Unlocked
Kernel: LuPuS-PRo-v3-LiNaRo
Stock ICS ROM .587
BB 77

You are right, this is based in Ultima ICS v1.4, in fact Riyal already has this in his sourcecode, so next's versiĆ³n should already have this fix, you have to use v1.4 modules

I think GB was 2px, but with the current driver is quite hard to tap on links at 2px, I will compile one at 2px if you want to try
