Latest Kernel mod -> Go Here
Based on 4.1.B.0.431 ICS 4.0.4 Kernel, features new CPU governors and autoroot.


Q. Who would benefit from this?
Those who want to stick to stock kernel for Official ICS (4.1.A.0.562), but would still want to get the benefits of init.d scripts, and native root access!
I personally feel ICS stock kernel is more battery friendly than Night-elf RC2 kernel.

Q. Features?
- init.d support (credits DooMLoRD for showing the way)
- ro.secure=0 (that is now adb has native root access!)
- clockworkmod 5.5 (credits Night-elf)
- no other changes to stock kernel :)
- zImage changes not possible as source is not available from SONY


Download
boot_ICS_plus_v5.img
Changes: Previous features +
1. Switched to Doomlord's arc ics recovery (better features)
2. Important bug-fixes. (Please update!)

boot_ICS_plus_v4.img
Changes: Previous features +
1. Perfect ADB connection in recovery.
2. Short vibrate on entering recovery added


boot_stock_ICS_initd_root_cwm_v3.img
Changes: Now restores stock WIFI modules (so you can directly flash from Night-elf kernel without losing WIFI!)
Those who are using v2 without problems do not need to update!


boot_stock_ICS_initd_root_cwm_v2.img
Changes: CWM 5.5, with ADB & USB mount (credits Night-elf)


Q. How to install?
Just as you install a custom kernel.

If no wifi, just delete "modules_version" and "modules_reversion" in "/system/lib/modules" and reboot
Steps:
1. Follow this guide to install official ICS + root
(Do not install CWM)
2. If you already have DooMLoRD/nAa CWM, go to /system/bin with any root explorer and delete recovery.tar and chargemon
3. Power down device and get into FASTBOOT MODE -> switch off device hold menu key & plugin usb. (LED notification turns BLUE)
4. check fastboot with "fastboot devices"
5. flash boot image
fastboot flash boot boot.img
6. Reboot with "fastboot reboot"
7. Enjoy!

Battery is a bit issue on all ICS rom. But I almost get 80% off that in GB. 100% battery runs almost 1d 12hr+.
Currently on nightelf kernel. Will give the stock kernel a shot. Will report in a week.

Kernel That Supports Dual-Boot, So that we can Have Two or more OS's on our Device. Like ICS and WP7 or Meego.. :)

Dual-Boot just like in HTC and Samsung Devices. :)

i believe that you should open overclocking features on your kernel!!!
keep up the good work

The latest ICS kernel source has not been released by Sony.. only then we can use the latest.
But till then, we can use Night-Elf kernel for OC..

I may make a stock wifi restore patch for Night-elf kernel, for those who want to try stock kernel after being on Night-elf

@shardul_seth Can You include tun module in future version? I'm wondering if version compiled from nightelf's will work...

    If I update this kernel from v3 to latest, do I have reinstall ROM (JJ's HYBRID ROM v3.1 Stable)?

    No
