What is it?
This is a kernel I have been working on for fun when I have time. Is uses some commits from Daz and his ICS/JB kernel, Quite a few commits from Code Aurora Forum and a bit from Omegamoon and Geno. I have Also recycled some code from my previous 308 kernel for the Huawei X5/u8800.
I used the 3.08 kernel source from Huawei as a base and pulled the boot.img and config from my stock b936 vodafone NZ rom.

19/01/13 update:
I broke my build environment a while ago, and my last kernel stopped building. Have finally rebuilt environment again properly and I decided to use Genokolars kernel as a base to save some time. It helps that his source is nice and clean too and he has documented his changes well. His source is here:
https://github.com/g...kernel_msm7227a

This Kernel is for stock/stock based roms only. It will not work with CM9 or CM10.

Spoiler


Just come back to using my phone for the first time in a while and realised that it was a bit choppy. Not sure why I didn't notice it before. Anyway, have set the governor values back closer to stock and added some small changes like updating SIO and changing the lowmemorykiller values a little bit. Seems smoother so that is cool.

You can build this by using this guide:

I use ubuntu 12.04 LTS and build off the u8815_defconfig.

Just added this to Stock+944, using the overclocking settings recemmeded in Stock+, and it's made it even nippier! No issues at all, and the phone is now running very fast. My rule of thumb benchmark is how long it takes to open Opera Mini from closed... Infusion about 5 secs, Stock+ and JellyCream are both about 4, Stock+ with this added is less than 4.

Been working fine so far... but I just had a missed call and eventually got a hang from the phone process... I used to get this occasionally on other roms, so I don;t think it's particularly this kernel or anything though... might be more to do with running exdialer and the missed call not being cleared properly.

Any chance of init.d support and adding 122Mhz to the frequency options? I think with those two extras this would be my new kernel of choice.

I like the sound of this, but I've never installed a custom kernel before. Do I simply put the zip on my SD card and install it from ClockworkMod - i.e the same as installing a custom ROM? Any specific wipes/formats you'd recommend?

Install through clockworkmod with no wipes. That's all.
