Hello Guys !

In this thread you will find my custom Kernel for the Sony Xperia C
Please be sure to read (and re-read) this Carefull to avoid unnecessary questions.



Changelogs


Changelog Beta Test 1 and 2 (July 03 2014)
  • Kernel Based on Stock Sources with some few fixs (Linux 3.4.5)
    (check my github for an full commit history, don't want an long Changelog here)
  • Compiled with Google's 4.6 ToolChain (Stock MTK ToolChain)

I made several kernel Compilations, the only difference is the Build Type and some MTK configs (Keep im mind that i don't own this phone)
I have no way to know if these will boot or not (but they should ...), you can always restore your System

I do respect the GPL, but using someone else's work without proper credits is just LACK OF RESPECT.

Fail to comply and i will drop this project
