  • For ICS users please use Version 7.4.4 and below, v8 IS ONLY FOR JELLY BEAN Roms
  • If you are using "The Brains" Rom, please remove the modules folder from: /system/etc/init.d/ because it's causing issues while using the rom with this kernel
  • If you are using my kernel with a Custom Rom based on Stock Rom, please mention it in the comment whenever you are reporting an issue.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Recommended Governor - I/O Schduler for best performance and battery life.
  • Governor: Wheatley
  • I/O Schduler: BFQ
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Recommended For All Users:
  • To get better graphics score for 2D graphics, go to: Settings -> Developer Options -> Force GPU 2D Rendering
    I used to get 270 in benchmarking score for 2D Graphics, but after enabling it, I started getting above 970
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Known Issues:
  • I suppose everything is fixed now
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Credits:
  • Thanks To Sony for: Kernel Source Code.
  • Thanks To Doomlord for: Auto Root Script & Init.d Enabler Script.

So far it's the same (I made mine from Sony's Source Code and not from his, so we have different configurations). I'm testing few patches to apply on the kernel and that's where differences will appear

Yes, it has Sony Stock bootlogo and stock CPU freq, I don't like playing around with CPU freqs because IMO Sony knows the device hardware more than us, so choosing those freqs will keep us on the safe side. when it comes to pushing the hardware into it's limits, it's better to think wisely.

Seems like the battery is good in the last 30 mins and the GSM is good its not dropping as in the TheJap's kernel. Will test more tomorrow. You can overclock the CPU to 1200Mhz because its save for this device. More than that its dangerous for the CPU

Could you consider the CWM flashable version? I don't always have time for using computer (like 90-95% of my posts are tapatalked) so the flashable one would be very handy.

Sure, will be on my to do list. Now I'm applying the latest update for linux kernel, then will implement over clocking to 1.2 GHz.
I guess the next release will include a CWM version
