i just flashed the zimage and it went smooth but how can i double check if it's actually working?
Assume you mean Cyan's highmem.
Go into the terminal app on the phone, and type free
you should see 395k total, and lets say 160-200ish free..(depends on apps open of course)
Being a newbie in flashing/rooting android, I've successfully flashed CyanogenMod 5.0.
I think Cyan may add some more details about the installation/upgrading in his first post. That would avoid a lot of repeatitive questions being asked... It's a 200+ pages thread now. The information is distributed bit by bit in the thread. It's becoming difficult to follow, esp for newbies.
Although I agree with that, I don't recommend playing with a new phone when someone is absolutely a newby especially when it is about experimental ROMs, kernels. Some people had to buy a new battery, but that is still a "cheap" way to solve a problem that comes from testing unstable builds.
So everyone, think twice before you try these at home.
i dont think he needs to add more to the first post. if you dont understand you shouldnt be playing around with a beta build anyway. There are plenty of instructions at his wiki which is linked in his first post.
Highmem kernel (latest, 29/Jan) in update zip format (as found in the kitchen).
