So i am back with a basic custom kernel for our Galaxy S Advance.


The features :
Support for USB OTG.
LZMA compression
INIT.D support
Swap support
Changed deep sleep state to 4
Many new governors
Fixed modules
Many more tweaks from Cocore mini

How to flash :
Extract the file. Password is 'shaaan'.
Place the extracted 'kernel.bin.md5' in the internal sdcard
Open terminal emulator or adb shell and execute the following commands
Code:
$ su
# dd if=/sdcard/kernel.bin.md5 of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p15
# reboot
Please test and report back..

Download :
Version 1 : Omega Kernel
Version 2 : Omega Kernel 2


Credits :
My entire S Advance team consisting of :
Diego-ch
Adi_Pat
Cocafe - for getting the kernel booting


To backup the original kernel and restore it,

Backup
Code:
$ su
# dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p15 of=/sdcard/boot.bin
# reboot
Restore
Code:
$ su
# dd if=/sdcard/boot.bin of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p15
# reboot
Protip : After first boot, let the device run for 2-3 minutes. Do not use it. Then reboot the device. After the reboot, use the device.

Dont use the SWAP! Its not needed for devices with more than 512MB RAM! SD speed always slower than internal mmc, so you cant get faster overall rom speed!

This is Nice... hope you can add more features like Support for more Governors, I/O, Mali tweaks for better gaming performance, some "under-the-hood" tweaks to help improve the phone's speed, performance and battery life at the same time :)

I will try it once I flash JB :)

Keep up with the Good work!

Any progress on Over Clocking our phone..?

Yes and Yes, tried now with adb shell, same result.

C:\Program Files (x86)\Android\android-sdk\platform-tools>adb shell
$ su
su
# dd if=/sdcard/kernel.bin.md5 of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p15
dd if=/sdcard/kernel.bin.md5 of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p15

I think your download is corrupt. Because of the 0 bytes

Mine USB OTG does not work, not even power usb devices (kingston flashdrive does not blink the led), and the cable is OK working at my boss Galaxy Note2.

And there is a bug with USB:

- If I connect with PC, the connection works, notification about usb connected keep at notification area even after disconnect, and anything USB related only works again after reboot (excluding charging).
- If it was anything OTG, nothing happens, and anything USB related only works again after reboot (excluding charging).


========edit===========

I do not want to do right now, I want to help test the kernel, but ...
How can I revert the installation ? Reflash ?

Confirming some problems with brightness. Even when it is on manual on 0 - sometimes it is bright when I unlock phone.
Aware of it. Its a light sensor problem. Don't have time to work on it currently. A bit busy with college work. Perhaps diego or cocafe will provide a new version. In this i wanted to try if otg works.

Can someone please confirm if otg works?

You make me reply in such a manner. There isn't a single mention of Odin in the op. Then why to even try using it in the first place?
