[Kernel] 308 Kernel for official ICS roms, Updated 07/02/2013

190 posts in this topic

Posted (edited) · Report post

Yep daz was correct. Although not all things broke. From what I could see the wifi became broken but the phone booted about 50% faster and touch was more responsive

Faster boot will be because I am using gzip compression instead of LZO. Scratch that, LZO should be faster. I'm not sure why my kernel boots faster.

Yeah, people seem to use the term "kernel" and "boot.img" interchangeably. :P

Yeah... I suppose to be fully technically correct I should say Init.d support will be added to a script (probably init.rc from looking at google) in the ramdisk of the boot.img. :D

On a side note, has anyone forked Koush's anykernel updater for this phone? We all seem to be flashing the full boot.img, but it is a lot easier to just flash a new zimage into the boot.img. Maybe something else to look into for another time.

#19 update up now. Has init.d support (untested, please let me know if it works), zram support enabled, Wifi fix from Dazzozo and a little bit of governor tuning. Get it from the first post.

Init.d works fine, nice one.

Any advice on how to correctly enable zram? I tried the same commands as used on omegamoon kernel and everything is good until the 'swapon /dev/block/zram0' command where I get the error

'swapon: /dev/block/zram0: Function not implemented'.

interesting, I just enabled it in the defconfig and it worked with my previous kernel. Will look into it and see. I think Omegamoon updated the code to match 3.4 kernel, so there may be something in there that has changed.

Yeah, as has been said, just flash the new boot.img in CWM/TWRP or whatever recovery you are using. No wipes or anything else needed. Cheers everyone, glad this is working for people.

Many thanks for this kernel Paul.

Using it with the official 936 and it's been over 24 hours and the mobile has not rebooted. Used to reboot at least twice a day.

Hope this is ok with you!

cheers!

and keep up the good work :thumbs up:

No Problems at all, spread the love! :D

Many thanks for this kernel Paul.

I have had the occasional reboot, maybe once in a couple of days, but it seems pretty stable to me. The CAF changes and Daz's wifi fix seem to really help the official huawei kernel. I have not had a reboot yet on the #19 kernel.

Nope, this is for stock roms only. Daz has made a lot of changes to make the kernel work with CM9/10 that this kernel does not have.

Just queried this. It won't work due to incorrect ramdisk

I'm no expert but I think CM is a different animal than stock. Hopefully someone else with more knowledge will answer you

well... fancy that all 3 of us had the same idea :-)

Just updated the first post to say no CyanogenMod support for this kernel. CyanogenMod has a lot of kernel changes especially in the wifi area to make it work. Various other things may have changed such as ramdisk etc too. If Dazzozo wants them, he can pull my changes but his kernel should have most all of my changes and then a lot more anyway.

Yep, if you really knew what you were doing you could potentially fudge it for CM9 (at the loss of some functionality), but definitely not for CM10 (we have some extra v-sync stuff that the display code expects to be there).

But in reality the CM kernel is kept up to date with all the best bits of each kernel so it's probably better just to treat CM as an all-in-one.

Excellent job, and improving core installed could not be more acceptable.
