how to install your ethernet driver

I've managed it to compile the asix network drivers for the Siyahkernel 3.3.2 myself. Just install the files in the attached zip file using these commands:

insmod mii.ko
insmod asix.ko

I've successfully tested the driver under Cyanogenmod 9 with my Trendnet TU2-ETG USB to Ethernet adapter.

Hi, I want to install your ethernet driver on my s2. Please tell me how to install the attached zip files. Do I install Siyahkernel first? Thanking you.

Hello , I have a S2 with stock 4.1.2 ROM
I just installed siyah kernel last version.
Now I have a problem with external micro SD card (64GB).
Before installing Siyah, my S2 saw microSD 64GB without problems. After installation my S2 do not red my 64GB SD anymore.
S2 say to dismount micro SD card when find it.
I try a 4GB micro SD card and S2 can read it.
Why I lost possibility to read/write my 64GB micro SD ?
Is it possible to solve ? If not ,how can return to stock kernel and stock recovery ?
thank you

Hi
I would try philz cwm 6 stock-kernel signed.zip first.
For returning to stock kernel and stock recovery i know no other was as flashing stock firmware.

Hello
where can I download
philz cwm 6 stock-kernel signed.zip
can I install from CWM siyah ?
Hi
I do not have the link at hand.
Please just search for philz cwm6 stock-kernel GT-i9100. As far as i remember you have to scroll down quite a bit to downloads.
Look for Kernel which has your build number (or close to it). As exampel: philZ-cwm6-XWLSD-OXX-4.87-signed.zip
You can install it from your recovery. And of course you can flash back with philz recovery to siyah (zip-file).
Also you could install custom roms like kitkat On your device with both kernels/recovery. For higher roms like cm 12, 13 there are some more things needed.
I am not sure if philz kernel will see 64GB card but its not much work and can be reversed easily.
Btw is it not recommended to not use cards bigger than 32gb? For this reason i never used bigger ones - but it worked for you anayway.

Is this kernel Isorec compatible?

I flashed "Siyah-s2-v6.0b5 Kernel +Recovery" on the i9100...
If you know if this is isorec TWRP compatible, please let me know.

P.S: If you know how to install the TWRP image from any other means other than ADB, please let me know too.
Thanks.

This is a very old kernel whereas IsoRec is a new concept...I guess you didn't read the original thread of IsoRec... Anyways if you are on stock then unofficial dorimanx build by chhapil and GreekDragon recent build is compatible for IsoRec.... Also you can easily flash the image file once you are on TWRP....

Hi

Thanks for your reply. However, for a new person like me, it is very difficult to understand the isoRec first thread... This is what I learned from your message;
a) Go install unofficial dorimanx build by chhapil and GreekDragon
- Now, would this automatically install TWRP? OR would I have to go to CWM and flash the isorec-TWRP again?
From your last line, "Also you can easily flash the image file once you are on TWRP" - I am a bit confused. Are you saying that I must install IsoRec-TWRP and then update TWRP again by flashing the new image from there?
Please clarify. Thanks.
(What is not clear is HOW is the Recovery partition related to the Android system Kernel?)

I don't remember any problems like that on siyah, but that was a few years ago....
Why would you want siyah? It is really old and out-dated. You would be better off with dorimanx, or even apolo.

I wish Siyah was still in development. It was the best most stable kernel I ever experienced, never found anything close to it these days with modern ROMS. used to have button light brightness match display brightness, button lights for notifications, dual booting ROMs, kernel level gesture support etc etc and the fine tuning of the gov/IO settings gokhanmaral tweaked, made the kernel lighting fast and stable beyond compare. Everything was just working as it should. Meanwhile most kernels now and then cant even keep my button lights on permanently when set to.

    Features:
    • based on JB sources
    • DISABLED CAP_ERASE (No superbrick bug)
    • All-in-1kernel because it supports CM9, CM10, Samsung, MIUI and Boot-to-Gecko (B2G) ROMs with a single kernel image. (no Sense4all support)
    • Dual booting support for all supported ROM types. See droidphile's post for Dual Booting FAQ
    • Custom CWM touch recovery with swipe gestures and double-tap selection
    • 6-steps CPU freq
    • 5-step GPU frequency levels. VPLL Mode to have additional frequency steps. defaults frequencies: 66-108-166-267-330.
    • Auto-root. You can also remove root via STweaks app and install it without rebooting your phone again. Auto-root can be disabled as well.
    • CPU Overclock/Undervolt support (we have two interfaces for that. both of them are defacto standard)
    • Tweakable vitalij's value (set to 5 as default)
    • Adjustable touchpad led brightness
    • Fixed fuelalert wakelocks
    • You can completely disable android logger using STweaks app
    • Faster charging for misc and USB modes. There are 3 modes (AC, Misc, USB) and normally last two of them support only slow charging. You can have charging speed of AC by increasing it (especially user while charging in car or using USB port)
    • Cpu governor optimizations
    • Gpu voltage, clock and stepcount interfaces (GPU Overclock/Undervolt)
    • Screen brightness curve settings with original panel gamma values. panel values unchanged, so you will get stock colors and will be able to use supercurio's voodoo display app when it is released. brightness modification will only change auto-brightness response.
    • BLN support both for Samsung and CM ROMs (you can use STweaks, Nstools or BLNControl app from the market to enable it)
    • Breathing or Blinking effect for BLN. (Make sure you don't enable blinking in any other BLN app) Use STweaks to select one of them.
    • Better touch sensitivity
    • Available CPU Governors: Pegasusq (default), Ondemand, Lulzactive, SmartassV2, Interactive and Conservative, Performance, Userspace, Powersave
    • CIFS as module
    • Available I/O schedulers: CFQ (default), noop, Deadline, SIO, V(R)
    • J4FS as module
    • ARM topology support (SCHED_MC)
    • Automatic EFS Backup
    • Lots of I/O tweaks and filesystem optimizations via some parts of thunderbolt scripts.
    • USB Mass Storage mode is working in CWM Touch Recovery and you can mount both internal and external sdcard as a disk drive
    • NTFS automounting for USB sticks. When you plug in an NTFS formatted USB flash it will be automatically mounted to /mnt/ntfs folder.
    • USB mouse and keyboard support
    • built-in profile support with default, battery and performance presets (you can change them in CWM Recovery). Even using everything default will save you a lot of battery juice.
    • Eargasm for headphone amplification (in STweaks) as free Voodoo Louder replacement
    • Almost everything is configurable such as scheduler features, hotplug thresholds, GPU frequencies, voltages, arm topology modes... and they are configurable via simple and free STweaks app which is embedded in the kernel and soon in Google Play & Opensource
    • Adjustable mDNIe settings
    • optional sharpness tweaks from hardcore
    • mDNIe negative effect toggle with home button (press it four times)
    • Touch gesture support by Tungstwenty. (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1831254)

    troubleshooting

    siyahkernel-ics-wide1.png

    READ THESE FIRST

    • Never report any bugs to CM9/CM10 threads if you use it together with SiyahKernel
    • Do not ask questions to me directly. This is a common thread, not my personal inbox. Ask your questions in the thread and do not target them to anyone.
    • Do not expect answers to all your questions. There are some questions which nobody knows the answer of.
    • Do not forget that this is a development thread. There is another thread in general section for those who wants to discuss battery life and chats. If your post does not include a feature request, bug report or suggestion it should be posted to the other thread.
    • No ETA for new version. Even if I sometimes talk about release dates those may change and they change for some good reason or because of my real-life obligations.
    • Make use of "Search this Thread -> Advanced Search"
    • Never ever discuss anything deep-sleep related in this thread. I do not make modifications to prevent sleep and 99% of deep sleep problems are application/ROM related. discuss it in general section. I do not want any positive ("this kernel sleeps like a baby") or negative ("There is a big problem with deep sleep. Please fix it") messages in my development thread.
    • If you do not provide details about your configuration and settings nobody can help you or nobody will care about your problem/bug report. The problems without details (ROM, settings, preferably the version that the problem first happened or the one that you don't experience the problem) will be ignored.
    • Never ever report any SOD issues if you are undervolting/overclocking and make sure you attach last_kmsg log. If you don't know what it is report the problem to the other thread because one more post without any useful information on dev thread will help noone including yourself.


    FAQ:

    Q: I am having some random lockups with some apps
    A: try removing root by using STweaks app and restart.

    Q: What is the difference between STweaks and ExTweaks?
    A: Both have similar functionality. ExTweak is Xan's implementation of the UCI interface (which is designed by Xan and me with the helps of AndreiLux and implemented in the kernel as open scripts by me) and STweaks is mine. I was hoping Xan would release the sources of ExTweaks (without profile support) but he changed his mind and I decided to open STweaks. Soon they will have almost identical functionality, so you can use whichever you like.

    Q: Does this kernel work on XXXXXX-ROM?
    A: If the ROM is based on Samsung Stock ICS Rom LPQ or newer, it should. Otherwise, search the thread... If you cannot find any reference to that ROM, try the kernel. You won't lose anything by trying this kernel. Worst case scenario is to reflash your previous kernel or ROM. You can backup your previous kernel with Hellcat's k-tool from the market.

    Q: Where is CM9, MIUI or Samsung ROM versions?
    A: There is only one version. Both ROMs are supported with a single kernel image.

    Q: What is the best settings?
    A: It is the one you try yourself and like.

    Q: I have just lost 20-30% battery by just rebooting/flashing the kernel. Is it a bug?
    A: No. It happens because of our fuel gauge chip which doesn't require calibration goes crazy sometimes. It is not related with kernel or ROM. Just reset fuel gauge chip using STweaks app (or remove the battery and wait 3 minutes) and then charge your phone.

    Q: BLN doesn't work.
    A: you need to enable it in stweaks or BLN app. if you have more than one app to configure bln make sure all of them use the same settings.

    Q: BLN works in test mode but it doesn't work otherwise.
    A: if test mode works you should blame the apps. Stock messaging and email apps may not support BLN and in some other applications you may need to enable notifications. Either find another application or change your ROM.

    Q: Can I use breathing effect without using BLN?
    A: for now, breathing effect only works in BLN. There is no way of using it otherwise.

    Q: I need to disable and re-enable BLN in stweaks to get it working again. What is the problem?
    A: You may have another BLN related application (BLNapp, nstools, or a script) which disables BLN after stweaks apply the setting at early boot stage. you have to either uninstall that app or enable BLN in that app as well.

    closing the thread once again...

    I don't want to piss the mods again because this thread attracts too many people.
    most of them misinterpret the "this is a development thread" statement and use the thread for their self-development purposes.

    There are very few people who give useful feedback and suggestions and I talk to them over gtalk, email or PMs anyway.

    greetings :)
