WildKernel
for T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S II


Go check out Tame! It goes great with this and it handles OTA updates for this kernel.

This is a Linux based (3.0.101) Kernel which is maintained by me kept inline with the Cyangenmod Kernel so this is compatible with ALL the latest KitKat Roms (unless otherwise stated in the ROM).

Please report anything good and bad so that I know what to keep and what not to keep for the next release. This also helps me push out fixes faster when presented with lots of information (such as logs etc.).

Please see changelogs for an in-depth look at features. Also take a look at the screenshots for a sneak peek.

Emmanuel, do you recommend CPU tuner or trickster or just stock performance to tweak settings?

Just flashed it on Carbon 5/21. Initial thoughts are that it seems to get to the boot animation quicker than Uber. But initial reboot is long... I thought my phone was stuck in a bootloop... Also does not kill vibration after subsequent reboots after the initial reboot after flashing the kernel. It's just as quick as Uber and seems to work with Kernel Tweaker. This kernel also won't crash the phone playing 1080p in portrait... Love the fact that this kernel has sleep2wake as well. Will report back after using it for the day...

Any chance of a 2ghz version? And does this work with PAC outta the box?

Edit: Forgot to say thanks for giving us another kernel for the good ol' Herc. So, thanks.

Not sure if its kernel related but after rebooting my phone because of play store issues. After rebooting, I lost all of my widgets that I placed on 4 screens.

Created 2014-05-28
Last Updated 2014-05-27

I haven't tested this yet, but it is on my "to test" list. I'm going to download it on my lunch break and flash it sometime on the weekend. Had a quick question though: what is the recommended date of the ROM one should use with this Kernel? The ROM I'm running was last updated back in March so I am unsure if any new CM features were implemented or removed from the kernel since that time and I would rather not be stuck in a boot-loop or nothing. The kernel I'm currently sporting is "3.0.101-DIABLO-3.3". You say yours is based off of Diablo 3.1, so I THINK it should play nice with this ROM, but I'm nervous I'll soft-brick my phone.
Is there a reason you didn't use Diablo 3.3 as the base?
Also, your OP states there are screenshots, but none are included? I don't need them (kernels don't really need screenshots, eh?), but just thought I'd point it out.
Thanks for being one of the ones keeping the t989 alive.

EDIT: I'm dumb... just saw the screenshot tab at the top. 18 hours on battery is pretty good. I get about 10 with how I have things set right now, so getting an extra 8 would be awesome.

It'll work fine with older KitKat builds.. And I don't think you'll have compatibility problems with using it with a ROM that came with a newer version of Diablo. I was at one point using older builds of Cl3kener's kernels on newer builds...

I will always recommend the stock performance app as it's apart of the system so you know for a fact it won't be holding any child proccesses which may effect battery etc.

Just flashed it on Carbon 5/21. Initial thoughts are that it seems to get to the boot animation quicker than Uber. But initial reboot is long... I thought my phone was stuck in a bootloop...

Yes it should work out of the box with ALL KITKAT roms. As for Jellybean and before I'm not 100% sure as they may and most likely use different ramdisks. Also I doubt you will see me push out a 2ghz version as I don't really like to OC, but when I do I like to stay in the OC 300-400mhz stage. Once getting above that you risk damaging your hardware overtime which can stunt it's life.

How many times did this issue occur to you? Did it happen right after kernel installation? Because it's sounding more like a rom related issue.

After about 12hrs into it, video recording added a nonstop buzzing sound in all video res. Reboot fixed the issue. See catlog. I am currently on AlpineRom.

I meant all older builds of KitKat ROMs. My bad. I didn't claify. I'll edit my post. And I thought I'd ask about 2ghz, it was nice when I had it...

Is Hyper supposed to stay a higher frequency on Core 0 when you are playing music or running an app and not doing anything else and with the screen on? I'm currently set at 1836/192 and the frequency settles more at 756 on Core 0. If I set minimum to 384 then it seems to settle more on 384. I couldn't find much info on how Hyper works so I'm just wondering if this is normal.

Something went very wrong....

About an hour after installing this kernel last night I picked my phone up off the table and noticed it was in a boot loop.

I went into recovery and wiped the cache and it eventually booted to the CM-11 Welcome screen asking me my language preference.

I rebooted back to recovery to restore from my backup and (long story short), I couldn't because the partition table on my external sd card has been destroyed. I don't know what would have done that I wasn't actually using the phone at the time.

Sorry I don't have logs, but if anyone knows how to recover an sd card with no partition table i'd love to hear about it. I tried gpart/gparted with no success. I assume the partition was some kind of FAT but I don't know for sure.

That happened to me a short while back using A different ROM and kernel. For me, my sd card died and I sent it back under warranty.
Sucks cause you lose all the data and no way to recover but if you can warranty it,I would.

Ya I suspect the card has failed based on how it is behaving in my computer. I will look into warranty but I'm not very good at keeping the paperwork for such things.

I'm not either, but if you know where you bought it from (online sources are usually the best as you will have an email receipt) AND you have an account with them, they MAY be nice and pull your receipt up for you. Sandisks warranty info though states that you need to have your original receipt AND the original packaging. When mine died they were happy enough with a photocopy of the receipt being emailed to them and they didn't need the original packaging.
It sucks when it does die because you lose your data and you don't know if it was due to the new stuff you were trying or simply a fluke. I've been meaning to try my new stuff again on my card (moving /data to external storage), but I'm nervous that that is what killed it. It gave me a nice performance boost (surprisingly), but I only got about 2 months before things died for me :(
Now I back up my SD cards roughly once every 2 months just in case one dies on me again. Well, unless I make no changes OR I only add stuff I can re-download easily.

    A lil progress

    I finally had time to do some kernel work (been so busy last few weeks), and I managed to get CyanogenMod booting and stable with the 009 (I built CM from source alongside WildKernel). This is a good sign, however when I extract the same boot.img to flash on other latest roms I still get the same issue. Still workin on it :good:

    Update

    v007 is out and this is one is has a numerous instability patches, that plagued previous versions...go check it out! Enjoy this one as future versions will include a lil extra present *cough* *cough* custom app for WildKernel *cough* *maybe* *cough*

    Long overdue update, enjoy

    v003 and v004 Beta updated for Android 4.4.4

    Small but much needed update for the kernels today. 003 and 004 beta now have support for Android 4.4.4, aswell as other previous 4.4 versions.

    I recommend only using the v004 beta if you experience graphical issues with v003, otherwise I recommend v003 as it has better battery life (initial kernel base). I'll have it in this format until I can create/kang a kernel base that is stable for all while maintaining the original battery life that you can get with the current v003 (assuming you don't have a sh*tty battery :p). Good day guys.
