[ special thanks to ]


Thank you guys for ur help! this would not have been possible without ur help!

OVERCLOCKING CAN BE DANGEROUS! U RISK THE HARDWARE GETTING DAMAGED!
PROCEED WITH CAUTION! U HAVE BEEN WARNED!


I AM NOT TO BE HELD RESPONSIBLE IF U DAMAGE UR PHONE / SPILL UR COFFEE / MISS UR ALARMS / ANY OTHER CALAMITY/MISHAP


[ WARNING ]

"Partition SDCard" option in CWM5 WILL WIPE UR SDCARD!!!

official kernel sources are not available.. We are using the kernel sources which are meant for ARC modifying, patching them to work on PLAY... So a few bugs are expected...

THERE ARE NO GRAPHICS BUGS LIKE THE PREVIOUS LEAKS/PORTS



[ features ]

same as my ARC kernel


[ credits for features ]

visit my ARC kernel thread



[ requirements ]

  • stock SE ICS Beta FW* (i havent tested on other ROMs so i cannot guarantee that it will work on them!)
  • bootloader unlocked
  • working fastboot



[ how to install this kernel ]

  1. download the boot.img & modules update.zip
  2. save the boot.img in the folder with fastboot binaries (fastboot.exe files)
  3. save the modules update.zip to sdcard (on phone)
  4. power down device
  5. start device in fastboot mode
  6. use the following command to flash the boot.img
    Code:
    fastboot flash boot boot.img
  7. reboot phone and enter recovery
  8. flash the wifi modules update.zip for my kernel
  9. reboot phone and enjoy the kernel ;)



[ how to enter recovery ]

  1. entry key is the BACK button
  2. there are multiple notifications to tell u when to press the entry key:
    • LED will light up to BLUE
    • the phone will vibrate when its waiting for keypress
  3. thats it you should now enter my custom recovery



[ how to use/navigate in recovery ]


  • BACK button to GO BACK
  • SEARCH button to SELECT
  • HOME button to GO UP
  • MENU button to GO DOWN

OR

On-Screen Navigation Buttons



FOR OVERCLOCKING
  1. start SetCPU/NoFrills CPU Control app on ur device (or any other app which supports overclocking) (u may get a popup asking for SuperUser permissions, click ok/yes/allow)
  2. now slowly increase the MAX slider to the right (one notch at a time) to increase the maximum frequency limit
  3. DO NOT JUMP TO THE LAST POSSIBLE FREQUENCY
  4. SLOWLY increase the frequency one notch at a time and do stability/testing for few hours

[ for modders/themers/others ]

hey guys here i am attaching a template update.zip which has been tested to work on the recovery provided here... u can add ur stuff to that file and edit the updater-script so that the u can flash ur files via this recovery...
basically it contains the correct combination of update-binary & mounting syntax...

this file is NOT required for normal/general users

So I plug in my phone flash 42ftf, then the rest can all be done on flashtool right? Fastboot with flashtool?

Sent from my R800at using XDA Premium

FlashTool currently only supports flashing kernel... We are working on adding capability to flash system.img and userdata.img





2ghz boots & runs on R800x (did not try overclocking, tho)

Great! I have started work on patching GB CDMA kernel too... Might release it in a few hours or in a day or two depending on how much time it takes...





wifi is not working for me.

Did u edit build.prop to "enable" WiFi?

WiFi working fine here... Check screenshot... Is anyone else facing same issue?

I have a couple of questions, first relating to the Kernel, I flashed the wifi fix and the Wifi still doesn't turn on for me, how can I edit the build.prop to enable it?

second is, does this Official Beta rom not have Google apps pre-installed? Also I don't have Android Market or the Play Shop

Thanks for your help :D

Nice work DooMLoRD :)

Can you add the wifi line to the default.prop in the RAMDisk, so people don't have to edit the build.prop themselves?

    DooMKernel v03 released!


    [ changelog ]

    • added AROMA File Manager directly into the kernel (ramdisk)!! so u can have access to file manager operations RIGHT INSIDE RECOVERY!!!! (more information on how to access this is here)
    • updated ramdisk scripts to correct superuser permission and to properly install busybox (1.18.4 full) in /system/xbin/
    • updated to patched ZRAM and enabled it (thanks to faux123) [details on how to use it, here is a recovery flashable update.zip to enable it]
    • added Fugeswap to lowmemorykiller (thanks to LeeDroid-)

    I was planning to restart work on the kernel for 2011 devices but when i look around the forum i was extremely disappointed to see "devs" ripping off my kernel sources, not even asking for permissions, then releasing their kernel under their own "tag" and not even bothering to mention my work...

    FYI more than 90% of the features of some of these kernels are based off my sources...
    https://github.com/DooMLoRD/Xperia-2011-Kernel-2.6.32.9/commits/master
    https://github.com/DooMLoRD/Xperia-2011-Kernel-2.6.32.9/commits/ics-zeus
    https://github.com/DooMLoRD/Xperia-2011-Kernel-2.6.32.9/commits/ics-mogami
    https://github.com/DooMLoRD/Xperia-2011-Kernel-2.6.32.9/commits/play-cdma


    its very easy to port from the same device kernel when all fixes and all the hard work has been done by someone else... being open source doesnt mean that u can just rip off others work,..

    do u know how many hours i spent getting the kernel optimized with all the features it has? hundreds of hours and numerous test releases...

    i had introduced tons of features into the semc 2011 kernel which people hadnt even thought of before was possible on these devices...

    its really shameful to such ripping off sources under the pretext of opensource and not even have the courtesy to acknowledge...


    so i have decided that i will not be continuing any further work on these kernels... and will be shutting down all my 2011 devices kernel threads...



    regards,

    DooMLoRD
