Introduction :
This is a project I undertook to make sure that I don't waste time doing pointless things during my vacation.
The Kernel is still in its early developmental stages and I'm still learning. I'll be adding more features with time.
I request you all to report the bugs that are bound to creep in, to be a little patient for I do not own the device
and to ask intelligent questions

I'm really sorry about that. Could you see the bootlogo? Did the device enter a bootloop?

Flashed Via CWM [Dont Work]
Flashed Via FlashTool [Dont Work]

the phone wont even boot, black screen without response.
flashed CM9 Kernel provided by FXP and everything is fine, so , its a kernel related problem.
