Hi to all , i'm new on the forum and I have open this thread looking for some help.

I have a Galaxy S 2 GT-i9100 with CM9 Final Stable (Android version 4.0.4) , and I have the kernel 3.0.32-CM-ge9cef6c [email protected]#1 the problem is I have a eMMC chip 0x19 so my chip is vulnerable.

I want to update / flash CM10 and i don't know if the blinky-ghost is a safe kernel or if have the problem of the eMMC brick bug. I searched info on Google but I couldn't obtain one plain answer about this problem with this kernel.

I think that this CM9 kernel is safe but I want to be sure before flashing and obtain a bricked phone.

Thank you all, and sorry if the answer is already in the forum but I couldn't find it. By the way, I'm Spanish so sorry if I couldn't explain it in a correct way.

If you had bothered to read any of the emmc/brick bug threads you would have your answer.

Thank you for you very usefull answer. I have already read about the eMMC brick bug, I'm just writing because I want to be sure.

I know the bug only happend if the kernel is based on stock kernel(and with CWM) but for example I'm not sure if blinky ghost is stock based.

The CM kernel is safe.

The name blinky (inky and pinky too I think, or I might be exaggerating a bit) are the bots that compile the CM kernel, or atleast that's how I've understood.

Then why not reply to one of the many emmc bug threads we already have for clarification instead of creating yet another topic just to repeat same answers that have already been given in other topics (Which you would have read if you had searched properley).
