Stock, debloated stock or a custom ROM based on the Official ICS release for the i777.

To prevent bricks, NO BOOTLOADERS and NO FACTORY KERNELS are used here.


Although the eMMC "superbrick" bug is now confirmed to affect the UCLE5 STOCK KERNEL, that stock kernel is NOT USED in any file here.

In the event that you do not already have a CWM kernel installed, please read this a few times and make sure you understand the information it contains before proceedinghttp://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1288112.

==================================================

Installation:
To install Semi - reboot into CWM recovery and install the .zip file that you downloaded from the links above.

Note that you must already have a CWM kernel installed.

BEWARE: Do NOT use any factory kernel, or any kernel if you are uncertain if it has been checked for eMMC brick code.

In the event that you do not already have a CWM kernel installed, please read this a few times and make sure you understand the information it contains before proceedinghttp://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1288112.

==================================================
Here is a link to my Github with kernel source. .

Please note that , unless it is in my Github, any other kernel that I release here is a simple port of the original creators work (Gokhanmoral or Entropy512). The ONLY changes I have made from their sources are the following changes made to /arch/arm/configs/(def_config_file);
Code:
[SIZE="6"]LOCALE==NAATT 
SND_SOC_MC1N2_MIC_SWAP=N[/SIZE] (or Y for MicSwap kernels).

Any kernel I release will be completely safe from the "Brick Bug".

==================================================

Thanks to:

Gokhanmoral
Everyone who gave support, suggestions and constructive criticism.


==================================================

If you have ANY problems, do a full wipe...

What's the best way to flash this without flashing the kernel? I already have LD3 installed and running the most recent Siyah which is likely compatible anyways.

Yea. That's the plan. I'll save it for when I have more time later on. I'm kinda curious if they fixed the gallery app to allow scrolling wallpaper and not just the fixed variety.

    Fixed vibration intensity problem with samsung roms.

    Be sure that you wipe cache & dalvik when flashing any new kernel.
