Here is something iv been working on for a while now. Its a custom kernel for STOCK vega roms. It has a lot that the original kernel doesnt.#

(Not For CyanogenMod)

it has :-
-- EXT4 support
-- TAP/TUN driver module
-- CIFS + NFS modules
-- UTF-8
-- NTFS module
-- SLAB memory management
-- CFS
-- CFQ
-- In line with latest .32.x kernel from kernel .org

I have added a few modifications that should make the vega a little better to use :(
-- Latest AR6k wifi module
-- Tweaked wifi module to stop the module force unloading, this makes the wifi connect A LOT quicker after sleep. (also allows wifi sleep never with a bit more work)
-- Camera is now controlled via kernel sleep/wake (better support for third party camera apps)
-- Ability to flip orientation ( in src )
-- USB host/slave mode switching without flashing kernel

As always although i test my changes as much as possible, im an not responsible for any bricks / fires / invasions that this causes :-D

[ChangeLog]
0.7
--Patched up to .32.35 :(

0.6
-- Patched up to .32.34
--Not rls

0.5
--Patched up to .32.33 :)
--Compiled all modules into kernel (bar wifi and tun, these are needed to be separate) --Cheers the_corvus for the idea ;)--
-- Added Xbox 360 PAD and FDTI support
-- Changed to NOOP IO by default (this should increase responsiveness on out NAND)

0.4
--Patched up to .32.32 ;)
--Few bugs fixed in .config

0.3
-- Fixed All Bugs tha 0.2 introduced (as far as i can tell)
-- Host/Slave now switchable without flashing a new boot.img :D (See USB HOST section for info :D )

-- Tweaked Scheduler
-- Added NTFS module
-- Added UTF8
-- Added pl2303 module

You have mentioned that this kernel is for STOCK roms only. What about Paul's 1.09?

If you flash from recovery it dumps boot --> unpacks the dumped image --> add new kernel and repacks

This cant change init.rc

PASCHA I had this.

If you do the long (6 second) press to turn the vega off completely, then do the NVFlash recovery startup (back two secs, back and power two secs, back two secs) then you should be able to flash stock ROM and go from there.

The weird sleep bug that Bumble is fixing means you might need to do the 6sec turn off a couple of times before oyu nail it . I did.

If that is too tricky then try out Higgsy's auto installer from XDA:-
