I would like to thank a few people whose contributions to the Streak Community have helped me to create the Balanced Kernel. Sergei (_n0p_) and the DSC Team for their Phoenix Kernel, 985hPaKicK for his source code for his CM7 Port. DJ Steve and Fards for their GB Kernel. The Team at Cyanogenmod for all of their ROM work. All of the Beta testers for your suggestions and time spent. The Kernel is kind of a Frankenstein of tweaks and codes from a few months of research and testing from Dell, XDA, Modaco, Github, Google and more. I am sure I have missed someone, let me know and I will add you to ther list. Once again Thank You all for putting up with all of the different builds and mistakes that I have made in the process of making Longhorn what it is today.

Balanced Kernel Key Features:

Governors added;

brazilianwax, conservative, interactive, interactivex, lagfree, lazy, lionheart, minmax, ondemand, performance, powersave, savagedzen, scary, smartassv2, smoothass, and userspace

Schedulers Added;
cfq, deadline, noop, sio, and vr

Frequency tables to add all the frequencies available between 128K and 998K;
128000, 245760, 384000, 422400, 460800, 499200, 537600, 614400, 652800, 691200, 729600, 768000, 806400, 844800, 883200, 921600, 960000, 998400
The Voltages were adjusted from 950-1400 by 25mV to help with power saving.


Here is the next installment for Longhorn. I changed the default Launcher to HoloLauncher. It is an ICS clone that is very lightweight and quick. I have improved the battery life slightly and made a few other tweaks. Thanks to all of those that have help to make this Rom what it is today.


BIG CHANGE: In order to do a Complete Factory Reset, You will need to do a StreakMod Wipe Data/Factory Reset as well as a Dell Factory Reset.

Longhorn 2.9.3 Changes
Less Lag Tweaks
Longhorn Balanced Kernel (366BB compatible)
New CM Boot Animation
Optimized Tweaks

Longhorn 2.9.1 Changes:
Added LMK settings
Adjusted Lag settings
Fixed issue with video recorder
Notification LEDs on by default ( to remove LED notifications, delete LED section in post _boot.sh)

Longhorn 2.9 Changes:
HDPI Resolution
I/O Tweaks and File System optimizations
Adjusted Bluetooth settings
Added DSC Universal Kernel (366BB compatible)
Added Boot Audio
Updated media files


Longhorn 2.7 is a little bit different as I have re-added most of the CM7 Functionality back into the Rom, with it still being bare bones. So now the Theme chooser and CM Settings are built into it already. Longhorn 2.7 has a Red and Black theme that comes stock. I have changed the scheduler and made a few minor tweaks to help speed up the I/O a bit. The minimum frequency is 128mHz and the max is 1267mHz due to the zdrive from DSC CM Kernel. Battery life is moderate, but can use some improvement.

Longhorn 2.7 Changes:
Added CM7 Theme Chooser
Added CM Settings Functionality
Added Red and Black Theme
Added Modified DSC Kernel
Changed Scheduler
Tweaked minor settings

Longhorn 2.6 is based on CM7, but those CM7 functions have been removed (98% of them), and what is left is Android 2.3.7 If you want those Functions to work here is the original Link to CM7 and MIUI Ports http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1528412 A huge thanks goes out to 985hPaKicK and the entire DSC Team for their work..
If you need the CM7 Settings and Theme Options for Version 2.5 or 2.6, download and flash this zip file
Link to CM7 Settings and Themes https://www.cx.com/mycx/share/K0nJDoBFEeGOZBICOA-R7w/CM7%20Settings%20and%20Themes.zip

Longhorn 2.6 Changes:
Fixed issue with keyboard from last version
Added File manager
Removed a few Apks
Updated default wallpaper
Added and Modified more Kernel Tweaks
Modified updater-script with parts from Lippol94
Added Speed Tweaks and Settings

Longhorn 2.5 is based on the Android 2.3.7 Port of CM7 that 985hPaKicK made. It incorporates work from the DSC Team, and it is NOT a CM7 version but Android 2.3.7. It has a tweaked init script from Slaid480, and some more settings to make it run smoothly.
As far as Keyboard FCing, you can use a different keyboard. I have provided another Gingerboard keyboard.

Longhorn 2.2v4
Fixed issue with some not getting Home button to work
Updated ICS Theme
ICS Boot Animation
Themed Email and Settings
A Few More Kernel Tweaks

You should try clearing cache, and reboot and see if it works. If it doesn't, try a factory reset. I have seen with a few other GB ROMs it doesn't like the dhd.ko file mixed with the boot image.

Can someone check, please ?

Default is 160 so I changed to 200 without any problem..

Install smoothly and launching very fast...
Switching screen, scrolling... all smooth as a silk, very impressive :)

One problem I found out...
ADWLauncher EX (Paid version) acts weird :eek:.... very hard to describe but if install, will know what I mean when switch the screen...
can someone try ??

Other lauchers are all ok as tested but I didn't try ADW free version from the market because "Your device is not compatible with this itme" shows up..:mad:

Continue testing...

hey thats because you set density to 200
thats odd(enough for the new gay market)to block installation of many apps

hey look at this and share your views about GB roms

Yeah... correct.. tks for reminding me... I just remembered :p
Wiped out and re-install, leave it Density at 160.. confirm no block anything for market now... download ADW lanucher from the market and install. but still FC ??

Everybody ok with ADW ??? :confused:

Anyway, very very decent rom with the speed, light weight and stable...:D:D:D

    New version is in First Post.

    I have got some helpful pointers from Sergei, and I will be compiling a different Kernel this weekend, that hopefully will address some of the battery life issues. There will be some testing period for it to be sure it helps. But that is my next project that I am working on.

    I am uploading both 2.8 and a MIUI beta version. Should be up later tonight.
