it is a little unfair to expect people doing something for free and fun to do it very well documented and perfect.

I never claimed that my work was perfect. indeed, it is not. and I can live with that. also a lot of people can live with that and like it.

even samsung doesn't do it properly even though you have paid for their product. releasing defective chips, buggy kernels, no commit history, late or sometimes no release for the changes in the kernel (violating gpl), no documentation, no source to support opensource development...

yeah, I know, some users may flash the latest one on ICS (even on gingerbread, or on another S2 variant) and soft-brick their device. they will have to use odin and nobody should flash any kernels if they cannot take the risk.

so, dikidera: either you should stop flashing kernels, or I should stop making new ones.
wanna open a voting poll for it? :p

There is a reason everyone knows the name siyah, because it has always been the best. You have been away 2 months and already done more for our S2s in a few of days than others have in those months imo. Great work GM

Not away just out of the spotlight. My understanding was there a lot of help given to Dori. He did put that kernel on a diet. :)

If you don't mind, please stop promoting Dori on a Siyah thread.

Thanks ESD. Had a look through there and a few other places already, still can't seem to get rid of the thing. As soon as I flash Siyah, it appears. It's bizarre. Never had this problem before.

Thank you for all your great work and the time you spend! Thanks for letting us use your great kernels!

I know it's not supported yet, so I don't expect anything, just letting you know that latest cm10.1 nightly(20130219) with 6.0b5 gives me no signal at all. No dualboot, just this one rom. And GetRil suddenly started saying that my modem is unknown, though it recognized it perfectly well and signal was fine before flashing 6.0b5 (maybe this can somehow help identify the problem).
Tried flashing different modems, RILs, reflashing cm and SiyahKernel in different order with the same outcome.
Just CM with it's default kernel and different(but matching) modems+rils works fine.

PS: I love your kernel and have been using it for the past year or so. Thanks for all the hard work, you are the best!

I had this same issue. Flashed back to CM kernel and it worked again. CM is (still) not supported yet, so it doesn't surprise me that it's breaking randomly. It was working on 20130117, though so it's a change somewhere in there.

EDIT: looking at the changelog for 20130119, there's new Samsung JB blobs as of that ROM. I am 80% sure that it's related to that

EDIT2: Checked 20130121, broken there too.

as soon as I fix the problems with my VM (I moved to another linux distribution) I will compile a recovery to support dualbooting and only then I will test the kernel with cm10.1
I may have to update cm10.1 init files or use a different modem driver to fix that but I cannot say for sure without reproducing the problem.

GM I know its hard but try to focus on the good vibes your return has brought to this forum and ignore the one-in-20 determined to piss you off... Its hard sometimes to remember that we are dealing sometimes with children, literally! I'm 33 and I know you're senior to me...

Never lose your anarchist instincts :)

With CM 10.1 as primary boot without problems, it bootloops on 2ndary rom when using a stock rom.
Does this kernel support dual CM/Stock rom boot?

Please read changelog on gokhanmoral.com

So I understand it doesnt dual boot with stock roms,but I also tried Boot-to-Gecko (Mozilla OS) as 2ndary and still doesnt boot.

If you are using a 6 version of the kernel and trying to dual boot a jb based rom it's not supported

Does anybody have any ideas as to why flashing this kernel (v6b5) might have just wiped out my baseband (I9100NELP4)? Luckily for me a Nand sorted it and back to running stock kernel with cm10.1.....but I'd like to try re flashing Siyah.....so long as I don't lose my baseband again...... :(

    hi guys.

    I was away for some time and I didn't read most of the messages lately including the ones in my s3 and xperia threads as well as the discussion threads.
    I have just skipped to the end.
    as you have read in the announcement post of v6.0b5 I know have an s2 (thanks to mbwatson. the device is perfectly working).
    I have tested v6.0b5 on omega rom v20 and yesterday's cm10.1
    I am hoping to release it tonight or tomorrow.
    it is still beta because dualboot needs some more work.
    you can have two cm10.1 or any other cm-based rom but not samsung JB as first or 2nd.
    the changes are not difficult but the repository that I need to clone is big.

    I hope I will add dualbooting in b6 and I will also add some touch2wake patches (implemented by robertobsc. we were talking about it for a long time but his last email is still being kept unread in my mailbox which was sent about a month ago :) )
    then I will spend some time on cypress driver because samsung has changed it a long time ago (and now they have changed it again) but we are still using good-old-messy-driver which has all BLN related changes.

    that's all for now. I doubt I will have time to read and post more, so please give help to those who seek it :)

    I had some time today and merged JB kernel with my modifications.
    there were too many conflicts (because of my previous merges with s3 kernel) and I resolved them in 20-30 minutes.
    I have sent the blindly compiled kernel to a friend and he said that it booted but the modem did not work.
    so, everything is (almost) ready. I just need an s2 for several hours.
    then some time to make dual-boot related changed (I need at least a day)
    I have also put cm10.1 support but I think I will have to remove it because it moves your sdcard contents to a subfolder named 0. multiuser support will create different folders for different users and that will probably break dualboot support.
    so, I will have to find another place to store dual-boot related files.

    can anyone state in a few sentences the very major differences between stock cm10, siyah and dorimanx kernels?
    strong and not so strong points of each of them.

    this would be useful for a large majority of 'not sophisticated' users to make a decision which kernel to choose.

    cm10 is the best kernel for cm10 based ROMs. it is developed by the guys who know what they are doing.

    siyah have some cherrypicks from here and there and some new features. I no longer cherrypick commits that I cannot understand (I used to be doing that a lot). STweaks lets you make some changes easily, without the need of init scripts. siyah supports both samsung and cm roms (except for 10.1) and you can use dualboot feature to have two roms at a time.

    dorimanx's kernel has lots of cherrypicks and he generally tries to catch the latest upstream. I don't understand most of his cherrypicks and he doesn't neither. I guess he trusts the commits from upstream but it may cause instabilities sometimes. however, if those instabilities are fixed those commits may give you some additional performance or even stability (irony? yes). that kernel also have STweaks support and has some more configurables. Dorimanx also uses my commits to support both samsung and cm roms with a single image and also the recovery+initramfs that I modified for dualboot feature. in initramfs there are some more scripts + optimizations some of which I find dangerous and unnecessary but most of them are optional anyway.

    so, if you want to play safe and make sure everything runs as expected use cm10 stock kernel.
    if you want some new features and have time to play with some settings use siyah.
    if you have more time and want to have currently the most benchmark-friendly , fast and up-to-date (considering the cherrypicks from upstream) kernel with some experimental features use dorimanx.

    sorry guys but I don't have any s2 around.
    as soon as I borrow one I will compile another kernel and also fix dual booting problem with Samsung JB
    I'm also a little busy lately. I am planning to borrow a friend's phone next week for an update.
