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 and to ask intelligent questions

Kernel Features :
  • Based on latest source code from Sony : 6.1.1.B.1.54 / .56 / .75.
  • Based on Linux Kernel source code : 3.0.78.
  • Compiled Using Linaro 4.7
  • Overclocked to 1.15GHz
  • CWM Recovery v6.0.2.8
  • Reconfigured the frequency table to add more steps for increments :
    • Non - OC : {200MHz, 300MHz, 400MHz, 500MHz, 600MHz, 700MHz, 800MHz, 900MHz, 1000MHz}
    • OC : {200MHz, 400MHz, 600MHz, 800MHz, 1000MHz, 1150MHz}

    • SIO
    • Row
    • Deadline
