BionicSheep2v0.5.1

READ THIS PLEASE:
Everyone, sorry to disappoint but this kernel is now dead. Due to a serious serious issue with the git client, me trying to delete 1 repo caused the deletion of my kernels repo instead. There will be no builds anymore, I would have to start from scratch and I do not remember every line of code I have changed for the past 4 months.

My sincerest apologies to you guys, I am still shocked myself right now, I can't believe it did that.

I will keep downloads up for now but I doubt the kernel will work bug free into the future without keeping up with driver updates and such. If there are any GPL concerns from any mods here on xda, please let me know and I will take the links down. I had source up until it got deleted. Thanks for the help, experience, and the times guys. You made this kernel a wonderful learning experience for me. Look out for my app in the next few months guys, its my new project if git doesn't screw me on that too.

My settings:
Gov: asswax
IO: fifo
Read ahead: 1024
Voltages: (stock, I pick them in the first place :p)
GPU: 480
Powersaving: 0
Mpdecision: its gone so enabling it does nothing

Changelog


Code:
10.07.2013 Release Candidate 2
-cm updates
-linux 3.4.65 updates
-GPU overclocking to 480
-0ms latency deadline scheduler (credits Imoseyon)

10.03.2013 Release Candidate
-cm updates
-asswax tunables adjusted to personal preference. Ramps up slower but also ramps down slower, also focuses on lower
 clocks at screen up and deep sleep. Check the git if you're curious
-Linaro 4.8.2 instead of 4.7 used to compile
-Latest linux 3.4.64
-378 clock changed back to 384 (so much more stable and battery friendly)
-voltage adjustments

This is probably my last build for this phone, when the Nexus 5 comes out I will probably get it and sell my gs3, so if the
price is less than $350, this will be it guys. Thanks for testing as I made my first kernel. I learned a lot! If any huge issues
present themselves I will obviously update it.

Didn't even realize torch was a built in app.

It doesn't work, just force closes if I touch the bulb. I've never used the app before though so I might be doing it wrong

Anyone have a mirror to 8/20? Downloads are still down

Sent from my SCH-I535 using Tapatalk 4
No mirrors please, if I take the downloads down, I do it for a good reason (it could hurt your device). There has been IMEI issues with all CM based kernels for d2 devices recently. In order to get your IMEI back you have to reinstall rom, gapps, and then the kernel all in one go. I will build with latest fixes and source sometime tonight for you guys.
