It is less than a month ago that I posted...
Siyah 2.6.2 - A Dummies Guide to installation & settings
and already I need to update things completely for Siyah kernels 2.6.7 -> 12
as the kernels themselves have improved and, in many ways, things have got easier and less app's and scripts are required.
It is also worth noting that most of what follows can also be applied to the excellent N.E.A.K.
kernel which can be downloaded here:-
[KERNEL][20.01.12][VooDoo] N.E.A.K. Kernel for I9100 - Think Different! (v1.3.2x) - xda-developers
Before you embark on this I should point out that your phone must be, "rooted
" . You can find details of how to root your handset and much more, here:-
Rooting Galaxy S2 - Dummies Guide
The preferred method of rooting that will allow you to follow these instructions is known as, "CF-ROOT
" and in my opinion is the only root procedure you should use.
Siyah 2.6.7 -> 12
SiyahKernel for SGS2 | "One kernel to rule them all"
KERNEL CLEAN UP SCRIPT (GS2BlitzerV1.5)
I use this one by our own hawker
. This is a preparation procedure, init.d
scripts and caches are cleared, that ensures all the previous kernel's settings are removed so making sure Siyah's settings are put properly in place. Download here:-
. If you choose to download these files directly to your phone, using the phone's browser, the files will appear in, "sdcard/downloads
" and you should make a note of this location when you come to flash their installation.
A, "must have", for Siyah, and other kernels, that allows all sorts of tweaks to various aspects of the kernel.
Download, free, from the Market:-
You will need to copy and paste the following to your SD card, (I use Internal SD card), root. In other words... not in a folder:-
Siyah kernal 2.6.7 -> 12
Check that you have installed Voltage Control
from the Market.
Ensure that you have disabled all other app's and settings that govern voltage etc. Such as Voltage Control, (if already installed), SetCPU, 2nd Core, lulzactive app.
BOOT INTO RECOVERY
You can do this by either using CWM
in your aps drawer and selecting, "Reboot into ClockWorkMod recovery
" or by powering your phone off and then holding down... Volume UP
(not DOWN) button + Home key
+ Power button
This will boot you into the Recovery Menu
and using the Volume UP
button, select, "install zip from sdcard
". In the next menu select, "Choose zip from internal sdcard
" and press the HOME
key to take you to your internal sdcard.
Again, using the Volume UP and Down button, navigate to the KERNEL CLEANING SCRIPT
. Navigate to - YES
and use the HOME button to commence kernel cleaning which takes seconds.
Once finished, select the, "Back
", option and then the, "choose zip from internal sdcard
This time, you will need to navigate to, "- Siyah2.6.7 -> 12-CWM.zip
" and select it using the HOME
button. Again, you must navigate to, - Yes
and install with the Home
button. After installation, which takes roughly 30+ seconds, select, "Back
You will then need to select, "Back
", to bring you to the menu headed, "- reboot system now
". Select this using the HOME
button and your phone will reboot with the Siyah 2.6.7 -> 12 kernel
