Search no more. This is THE kernel for your gingerbread x10mini.


Before unlocking your bootloader, read this thread
If you brick your device, you are the sole responsible.



Features:
  • Based on stock 2.6.29 SE sources
  • Upgraded to Linux kernel version: 2.6.29.6
  • Ported various components from 2.6.35 / 38
  • Significantly fast booting time (~25 secs from power button to lockscreen)
  • CWM recovery 5.0.2.7 in kernel
  • Netfilter support / AP support / Usb tethering
  • Swap support
  • Tun/Tap
  • Mddi fix
  • Ext3/4 support
  • Modules auto-copying at boot
  • Dual touch options:
    - Fake dual touch in kernel (thanks to andrej456) (default)
    - Modular fake dual touch in kernel (thanks to doixanh)
    - Modular no dual touch
  • Many CPU freq governors to chooce from: interactive, interactivex, minmax, smartass, smartass2, scary and savagedzen
  • Modular Undervolt
  • NOOP ioscheduler
  • TINY RCU
  • DM_CRYPT_GLOBAL_WORKQUEUES
  • Ramzswap for compcache
  • Offline charging embedded in the kernel
  • Stable and fast oveclocked frequencies (not enabled by default)
  • Frequency table: 19MHz - 864MHz
  • Default CPU governor: interactive
  • Two way call recording (might be against the law for some countries, you are responsible for using this feature)
  • Interface Stat support for ICS
  • Memory management and binder improvements from gb kernel
  • Many, many feature and stability patches from various kernel sources
  • ICS DRM support

IMPORTANT:
  • For wifi to work, the ROM MUST have Wifi built from sources as in CM. If this is not the case, the Wifi WONT work, DON'T compain here about that.
  • For vibration, the ROMs need to use the gb implementation.

FAQ:
If you have any issues, please read the FAQ thread first: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1266911

Requirements:

Install:
  • Backup
  • Unlock your bootloader as described here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=17384177&postcount=3 or here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1254225
  • Download the kernel ftf file from here and move it to Flashtool\firmwares so that Flashtool can pick it up
  • Flash the kernel via Flashtool
  • Reboot and check Settings -> About Phone:

Uninstall:
  • Flash back to stock using Flashtool or SEUS.

[KERNEL] nAa-kernel-02 Custom Gingerbread kernel + CWM Recovery

Notes:

Dualtouch:
  • If you want to enable the fake DT by dx (instead of andrej456's which is the default), you have to insert the following line in the /system/etc/hw_config.sh file:
    insmod /system/lib/modules/synaptics_i2c_rmi4_dt.ko
  • If you want to remove the fake DT altogether, insert the following line in the /system/etc/hw_config.sh file:
    insmod /system/lib/modules/synaptics_i2c_rmi4_no_dt.ko

BIG FAT WARNING:
Before cracking the bootloader, keep in mind that this process cannot be undone (until today) so your phone might not be accepted by SE if warranty is needed.

Features:
  • Netfilter support / AP support
  • Swap support
  • Tun/Tap in kernel
  • Mddi fix in kernel
  • Modular Overclock / Undervolt / Ext3 / Ext4
  • CWM recovery v4.0.1.5 in kernel

Requirements:

Install:

Uninstall:
  • Flash back to stock using Flashtool or SEUS.

nobodyAtall, have you removed sony ericsson init logo?

thanks for the first kernel-attempt for our phone :)
just my 5 cents... can we get all our nice possibilities (e.g. encryption) form your cwm-version here? :)

I created an init logo for your kernel, it isn't so good but you can use it if you haven't created one!!!

Frendly, Regards Stelios97
Thanks Stelio :)
The problem though is not the image file. It's init which makes it distorted ;)

Btw, this kernel does not need the chroot hack we previously needed with chargemon so I replaced it with the original charger. Haven't tested if offline charging works though.
