NOTE:

I'm not a DEV and not pretending to be one, I'm a android enthusiast.

I would like to thank all XDA members that are helpful.
I build and mod stuff for my personal needs and then I share them.
Do I want something in return? NO.
You don't like it, no problem, there are enough good DEV's with there kernel to help you along
ONLY SUPPORTS Android 4.2.2 SAMSUNG STOCK BASED ROM

WARNING!:
Only flash the kernel for your device, flashing the wrong kernel can/will lead to hard brick. Never try to install the 5110/5100 on to the 5120 and never install the 5120 on to the 5110/5100.


CivZ-SphereXtreme-REV3.2-GT-N5110/5100/5120 And older versions.

I recommend TricksterMod or Performance Control (No gpu control) app to tweak the kernel

Use at your own risk
Take a Nandroid backup of your system and of your boot.img
You need to be on custom cwm to install this

Configuring the kernel

Dears,

May I ask how do configure the parameters of this kernel? Is there a separate app for me to do this just like Boeffal kernel?

How will I know the format of my external memory card... I'm afraid to flash this kernel because I feel my device might not read my external memorycard again... Please advice..

If experiencing lag when scrolling the app drawer or lag in general.
Don't worry I got that fixed, it got to do with the triangle away support.

Samsung got a lock on the bootloader values (new in 4.2.2) causing it to cause lag in the rom, I fixed that so next kernel release will be smoother. I had to change some stuff so the Triangle away is still supported
Expect it tonight.
