Is this the last 4.2-kernel you'll make?

Yes. I don't want to work on too many projects simultaneously. And there will not be many updates for jb4.2 anyway now that jb4.3 reached nightly status for cm. I also see no good reason to stay on jb4.2. 4.3 is only a minor update to 4.2 and I see no advantages myself to stay on 4.2.

BLN problem

Someone who uses this rom knows how to have blinking BLN working?
I've tried to change both CM-LED and BLN in "Mackay settings/led notification" panel, but the options to have it Blinking are not working for me and i have only always-on lights!

Anyway this rom it's amazing!

Here is Mackay Kernel 0.3999 Kernel packed by me.

This is the newest Mackay Kernel for JB 4.2, and it is extracted from the newest Mackay ROM v2.999.

Changelog
1. Updated Linux Kernel v3.0.99
Ammm, what's new with this kernel? Does it still have both cwm and twrp?
Can i still flash it to other rom (Remics)?

    Just like for CM9&CM10, I started making a CM10.1 kernels. The philosophy is the same: stock plus a few extras

    This kernel is based on my CM10 Mackay kernel.

    If you like a CM10.1-based ROM with the Mackay kernel included, there is also Mackay ROM:
    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2024269

    Thanks to all SGS-CM-kernel developers (pawitp, stratosk, DerTeufel, Glitch, mialwe, krarvind) , I learned a lot from all of you!

    Changelog 0.399 compared to previous release (0.341)
    -Final build for JB4.2
    -linux v3.0.90

    On 2.7.0+ Mackay ROMs, BLN/recovery/navbar can be activated in Mackay settings*

    On other roms, install the kernel, reboot, open /data/local/mackay/bln/recovery/navbar and change the 0 for 1. Then reboot:
    bln (set to 1) BLN will be activated
    recovery (set to 1) CWM will be activated
    navbar (set to 1) navbar will be activated
    As an alternative, Bejda developed a script for Mackay settings:

    This is a freshly started project. Ideas for improvements/additions are welcome but:
    1. I try to stay close to stock

    Credits:
    -teamhacksung/pawitp for making CyanogenMod work on our ancient phone

    This version can only be used on JB4.2-based ROMs

    FAQ
    Q. I can't change governor in NStools (or any similar app)
    A. Go to recovery, mount data & datadata partition, then fix permission. You can also install the fix permissions app to this for you: http://bit.ly/YxPgLD

    Q. Process x (e.g. mediaserver/phone) is eating 50+% of my battery, what should I do?
    A. Go to settings>apps>all and find the app which is causing the battery drain. Then delete app data and reboot phone. If it does not help, you can combine this step with clearing dalvik cache.
