Are you asking if it booted successfully after flashing? Yes it did.
But, in the Kernel Version it still says : "[email protected] #1". Wouldn't it be different if you recompiled it? :confused:

thats good enough...

the kernel is from stock kernel.sin, as no kernel sources are available at the moment i cannot do a fresh clean compile...


anyways i am updating the 1st post with the info that the kernel is tested on a device and it works

Please go ahead :)
Waiting for Sony to release the sources so that we can lay our hands on our very own DoomKernel :D

i wont be working on custom kernels for Xperia P, Sola & U as i dont have those devices and in anycase i dont have time to work on them...


honestly i would have LOVED to, but due to lack of time i will be barely able to support the existing devices i have (ARC, PLAY, S)... so i dont want to take up additional responsibilities when i know that i wont have time to work on those devices as of now...

Ouch! That's a bummer :(
I was really looking forward to powering up my phone with a sexy Kernel...
Goodluck nevertheless, have fun in IIMA :)

it works. the phone is rooted now, but keep in mind to do a backup of your sms/whatsapp/app, before flash this kernel.
I hear sometimes, a strange "tic tic" from the speaker, never heard before flashing doomkernel.
I will keep testing this
Thank you man!

it's was disappointing...DooMKernel is very good kernel...

I understand, but you shouldn't worry, there are many devs interested in this phone.
I being one of them will be quick to create custom kernel once I get my device (month or 2) and I will be working in the FreeXperia team to bring CM9 to this device :)

Although, I wouldn't say I am as good as DooMLoRD, I'm sure you will enjoy the work of me and other developers :)

    Why my phone is not booting after flashing with this kernel but cwm is working is there any other way to install cem

    this kernel is only for GB, not for ICS, use munjeni's or keiran's kernel for CWM
