[JB][KERNEL][CWM][TWRP][3.0.64][17th Feb] ThuϟderZap 4.1★Lightning Fast★Butter smooth

Hey people,
After mind blowing success of JetMOD 3.0, I am here again with a new project
This is a kernel project, I will be integrating this kernel in JetMOD 6.0 which is in the works currently. Till then I will be refining this kernel to its max

So presenting ThunderZap kernel- the ultimate, fast and light kernel for Samsung Galaxy S Advance!

  1. ClockworkMod Recovery Integrated by me
  2. TWRP 2.4.1.0 by me Integrated
  3. Linux 3.0 based
  4. Compiled with Linaro toolchain

Instruction to flash:

Put the kernel on sdcard and do this in terminal emulator or adb shell

    Speciality of the recovery-
    I have done few modifications in recovery source and now both internal and external memories are accessible in TWRP recovery ;)

    What is Dynamic FSYNC Controller?
    It is an automatic fsync controller which disables fsync when screen is ON which gives better performance and enables it back when screen is OFF and resumes the pending disk writes which avoids data loss. This is better than manual FSYNC control as it operates itself automatically
