All good so far, but now I must go to bed !!
I'm slightly confused when it comes to the old bootloader. Does it require a different old bootloader for ICS, or will the GB old one do the job?

The old GB one worked a treat.

The changelog for the next Siyah release, v3.1beta1, looks very interesting:-

Siyah kernel v3.1 beta1 is up!

"Changelog:

touchscreen sensitivity tweaks
sio fifo_batch=1
set default usb mode to mass_storage for MIUI ROMs.
disabled smooth scaling for interactive based governors (lulzactive and interactive)
prevented tick sound after reboots or in download/recovery modes
Dual-booting
For now, you will only have one additional option available in CWM Touch Recovery and that is cloning your primary ROM as secondary.

If you want to have another ROM as secondary ROM, follow these steps:

Make a nandroid backup of your existing ROM
wipe everything and install the other ROM
Boot the ROM and make customizations. Don’t forget to reflash SiyahKernel if the ROM flashes another kernel.
Use CWM Touch Recovery to clone your rom as secondary rom.
Restore nandroid backup
Keep in mind that you will not be able to flash additional CWM packages to the secondary ROM. Therefore, it is important that you have flashed all additional packages and customizations in the third step before you make the clone in the 4th step.

Some notes about dualbooting:

If you do not make any cloning you won’t be prompted to boot the second ROM.
you may need to reflash this kernel after a nandroid restore if your nandroid backup is created with another kernel.
there is no progress bar during the cloning process. it will be implemented later but for now, be patient because the size of data is huge and may take up to 10 minutes to clone.
there are some checks missing. for example if you do not have enough space in your internal sdcard (you need 2.1GB free space) you will not get a warning or error, but dual booting won’t work. remember, this is beta and not all features are implemented yet. In time, other dual-booting options in CWM Touch Recovery will be implemented.
you won’t be able to use mass storage mode for /sdcard in second rom because we have our data and cache partitions on /sdcard. only external sdcard will be mounted if you are using mass_storage mode. mtp should work fine for sdcard.
once again, you won’t be able to flash any CWM flashable zip to second ROM.

I skipped Siyah v3.1 beta 1 because Siyah v3.1 beta 2 is out!!

Changelog (from da site
- fixed high memory usage
- fixed booting Samsung ROMs as the second ROM
- no need to fix CWM Manager backup issue. If you use any action in CWM Manager it will only boot to recovery because CWM Touch Recovery only works for the primary ROM. The commands are created in secondary ROM’s cache partition if you use CWM Manager in the second ROM, therefore they will be ineffective in the recovery mode.
- re-enabled CGROUP_TIMER_SLACK and SCHED_AUTOGROUP
- reapplied ondemandx patch (I forgot to put it back in v3.0 release. it should be the reason of having more battery drain with 3.0 than 3.0rc2)

Looks like I'm back on ondemandx!

Edit1: I still only have the ondemand option, no ondemandx.

Edit2: And Siyah 3.1 beta 3 is right around the corner!

Changelog up to now:

- fixed move2sd problem in CM9 and AO(S|K)P ROMs
- mounted sdcard with utf8 (should fix some chinese or cryllic chars not being displayed correctly)
- I recommend you to use move2sd feature only on the primary rom because there are lots of details which is really hard to explain here.

Edit3: Siyah 3.1 beta 3 is out! lol gokhan's churning them out today!

I was on Siyah 3.1b3 and it's very good. However, flashed the new 3.1rc1 and the laggy scrolling came back, so I switched back to 3.1b3.

Will be waiting for 3.1rc2.

Siyah kernel v3.1rc2 is up!

"Changelog:

removed 1600MHz and 100MHz steps
merged with cm9 sources (some patches for at&t version and lots of cleanups/rewrites. thanks to teamhacksung and Entropy512)
updated the build script a little to fix the module loading issues (which is, by the way, the main root of wifi toggling issues)

rc3 is now up


Changelog:

* new feature: BLN without Wakelock (BLNWW). Disabled by default. You have to enable it using ExTweaks app.
* default I/O scheduler is set to CFQ.for default profile.
* CIFS is now built-in, no longer a module, to save space
* Superuser.apk, su, CWMManager.apk and ntfs-3g files are moved to the end of the kernel and won’t be decompressed unless they are needed to speed up the boot time.
* samsung recovery binaries and some unnecessary files moved to the end of the kernel image to eliminate unnecessary decompression. those will be decompressed only when you boot into recovery, which will make the booting process faster.
* we are now back to gzip compression after moving unnecessary binaries to payload part.

Happy RC4 is out...

SiyahKernel v3.1rc4 is up...

Changelog:
  • checked all freq and voltage interfaces and found no problem. make sure you remove boot settings and reapply after flashing rc2 or newer because the number of frequency steps has changed. we do not have 8 steps anymore, we have 6 steps. you have to update your init.d scripts or reapply boot settings accordingly. Just in case, I have added parsing 8-step freq settings and discard first and last settings and apply 6 in the middle.
  • added progress bar to cloning process.
  • new feature: swap primary and secondary ROMs. It takes about twice the time of a cloning process. This will help you to update your second ROM until I finish flashing zips to second ROM.
  • updated smooth_scaling defaults to new step level. (smooth_target=1, smooth_offset=2, smooth_step=2)
  • added available space checks to cloning and swapping ROMs.
  • updated to linux 3.0.28
  • BLN: fixed cm9 ROMs having touch lights off after BLN notification

(can't post links as this is my first post :P )

Flashing now....

Happy Review of 3.1 rc4 (14th April version)

Well here is the review of the old rc4 (while my slow slow net downloads the 16th April updated version)
  • No FC issues faced
  • No wifi issues
  • Smooth animations, no lag
  • Cannot comment on the battery backup as I was tinkering with it throughout the weekend
  • Good performance
  • All settings on Siyah defaults

All in all one of the best kernels yet, after 48hrs of use that is.
Let's see what the updated version does.

Aah.. and I was just getting settled with my rc4, well downloading again

First Impressions:
Auto brightness is darker than before in low light, still good and clear for viewing.
No lag experienced yet.
Benchmark scores are also good as expected under my current settings.
Let's see how the battery performs overnight.

BTW i noticed that the default scheduler was set to deadline, but the changelog doesn't mention it. Can someone confirm plz. I changed it back to sio.

SiyahKernel v3.1 is imminent

Changelog:
  • changed “format /emmc” and “format /sdcard” to “format internal sdcard” and “format external sdcard” to prevent confusion. In CWM Recovery, /emmc is internal sdcard and /sdcard is the external.
  • added back the vibration level setting (thanks to myfluxi for the fix)
  • fixed ntfs automount for usb sticks. it will be mounted to /mnt/ntfs

Not released yet.

edit: gokhanmoral has edited the post on his site. It's no longer called rc6, its just called 3.1

Why do I get "no zImage file found" when trying to flash Kernel with CWM Manager.
Siyah-v3.1rc5-CWM.zip downloaded and I can see the zImage file in the zip-file.
Zip-files is placed in internal SD root.
What option do I choose when rebooting into ClockWorkMod recovery to do the same procedure there? Do you think that will work?

You are already on a previous Siyah version, CWM Manager by Chainfire uses aspects of a modified CWM recovery in a CF-root kernel. The CWM recovery of Sitah kernels is modified by gokhanmoral according to his needs. It is not fully compatible with CWM Manager.
Somewhere gokhanmoral had mentioned that many actions of CWM Manager will not work and will reboot you to CWM recovery instead.

All you need to do is reboot into recovery (you can do that from the CWM Manager also) and then install the zip file from there. It will work, I had faced the same issue and it worked for me.

How do I install it? Like a ROM? Install zip from SD?

Yeah just flash it like you flash a ROM. Its been a while since I've flashed a siyah kernel with the cwm app so I could be wrong here. But I think if you download the tar instead of the zip it will flash from the app.

gokhanmoral has changed a lot of the CWM recovery app, adding swipe touch, software buttons, support for dual booting etc.
Hence the recommendation is don't use CWM Manager as it was coded to work with the cf-root kernel.
Use the zip only and flash from the recovery menu.

Nowadays all I use the CWM Manager app is to boot into recovery mode

Personally I don't even use it for that, I just boot into recovery with the power menu shortcut, I'm not too sure why I still have it on my phone. I only really remember the .tar used to work with the app as I thought it was strange that worked and the cwm zip didn't.

I've never used CWM manager neither.
I always flash via CWM Recovery. I've heard CWM Manager flashes can be unreliable. If you do want to flash when the phone is up and running, use Mobile Odin.

Ah of course how did I forget Mobile Odin. That's a wonderful app too.

It may be just me but I always feel comfortable with Odin on PC and CWM Recovery mode.

@Shotgun82
The power button shortcut is only available on custom roms if I am right.

Since my phone is always on, I always use Mobile Odin. It's awesome

Siyah v3.1 official looks imminent. Changelog (from da site) below:

- changed “format /emmc” and “format /sdcard” to “format internal sdcard” and “format external sdcard” to prevent confusion. In CWM Recovery, /emmc is internal sdcard and /sdcard is the external.
- added back the vibration level setting (thanks to myfluxi for the fix)
- fixed ntfs automount for usb sticks. it will be mounted to /mnt/ntfs

I have to admit, I'm more of an old fashioned CWM Recovery flasher. I wish Mobile Odin had the facility to flash zips also.

Kie, can you shed any light on this thread for me please?

Or...RC6...yes, I mean Siyah v3.1 rc6 is out WITH...one extra change:

- removed blnww temporarily because of the battery drain it causes

No problem Hawker I'll check the thread out and see if I can provide at least some guidance :P

Yes one would think an additional change would put it even closer to official v3.1, not further away! Haha gokhan is always keeping us guessing...

I might wait for official v3.1 since it's only minus 1 or 2 changes away

AFAIK there isn't a thread specifically for NEAK 2.X settings yet.

The thread that you could adapt to 2.x is this one:-

[TWEAK][SIYAH/REDPILL/N.E.A.K.]MagicConfig v0.3.2 for Voltage Control(SAFE/900+USERS) - xda-developers

I would recommend atleast going upto rc6 as he has mentioned the wakelocks issue with blnww.

Post rc2/rc3 even I am experiencing bad battery life.
Try switching to the battery mode from CWM recovery's kernel specific options menu. That should help.
And it's really too early to comment on battery life of rc6, a kernel needs to settle in before we can really judge battery life.

Will let rc6 settle in for 48 hrs or so before I post about it's performance and battery life (i.e. if gokhanmoral doesn't release another release in the meantime :P )

I discovered what was eating my battery.
It was Skype and BLN.
With Skype off and BLN disabled I have better battery even on 200-1400 overclocking of cpu.

I just decided to go ahead and urchase, mainly because of the built in profiles it offers. I'm a complete noob at mucking about with these kinds of settings so hopefully the battery/performance/default profiles will give me a flavour of what's possible. Plus helping the devs is always a good thing of course.

Ummm... the built in profiles of battery/default/performance are freely available in the Kernel specific tweaks section of CWM Recovery.

Yep that is for sure.

also it surely helps motivate the developers to keep up the good work.

SiyahKernel v3.1 is imminent

Changelog (including the changes from all previous 3.1 beta and rc builds):
  • USB serial support
  • USB mouse and keyboard support and fixed crash on unplug (thanks to sztupy for his galaxy s kernel sources and kevinh for the patches)
  • latest CM9 support
  • new liblights which supports both Samsung and cm9 ROMs+kernels to prevent problems when users flash stock or speedmod kernels.
  • re-enabled CGROUP_TIMER_SLACK and SCHED_AUTOGROUP
  • disabled smooth scaling for interactive based governors (lulzactive and interactive)
  • Dual-booting
  • prevented tick sound after reboots or in download/recovery modes
  • sio fifo_batch=1
  • adjustable gamma and vibrator levels (thanks to myfluxi)
  • added gamma and vibrator level adjustments to ExTweaks app
  • removed 1600MHz and 100MHz steps
  • merged with cm9 sources (some patches for at&t version and lots of cleanups/rewrites. thanks to teamhacksung and Entropy512)
  • default I/O scheduler is set to CFQ.for default profile.
  • CIFS is now built-in, no longer a module, to save space
  • Superuser.apk, su, CWMManager.apk and ntfs-3g files are moved to the end of the kernel and won’t be decompressed unless they are needed to speed up the boot time.
  • samsung recovery binaries and some unnecessary files moved to the end of the kernel image to eliminate unnecessary decompression. those will be decompressed only when you boot into recovery, which will make the booting process faster.
  • Implemented clone primary to secondary, clone secondary to primary and swap primary/secondary ROMs in CWM Recovery
  • updated to linux 3.0.28
  • fixed ntfs automount for usb sticks. it will be mounted to /mnt/ntfs
  • changed “format /emmc” and “format /sdcard” to “format internal sdcard” and “format external sdcard” to prevent confusion. In CWM Recovery, /emmc is internal sdcard and /sdcard is the external.

not released yet

Just hoping that this does not turn into rc7 at the last minute (like with rc6).

He had removed the 1600mhz option around the rc1 phase only. It was causing bootloops and freezes on quite a few phones. So he limited OC to 1400mhz.

speedmod is definitely the battery friendly ICS kernel atm, 7% drain overnight, smooth scrolling and no lags at all

will stick with this one i think

So far so good, having installed it alongside the newly-released D4 v7.0. Previous undervolting settings caused a hard lock but I think I've got that sorted by upping the 500MHz voltage slightly. Other than that, no problems.

However, this from the changelog may be worth bearing in mind:

Quote:
changed “format /emmc” and “format /sdcard” to “format internal sdcard” and “format external sdcard” to prevent confusion. In CWM Recovery, /emmc is internal sdcard and /sdcard is the external.
Using D4 these mount points are reversed, with /emmc being the external card and /sdcard the internal storage. It appears to be a general issue with AOSP-based ROMs.

Siyah kernel v3.1.1 is up!

"Changelog:

applied latest cm9 initramfs changes
if you use cm9 as your second ROM, remember that internal sdcard location is /mnt/sdcard and it is fixed. you should have Settings->Storage->(Press menu)Storage Configuration->Use internal storage TICKED but the internal/external storage order will be reverse if you use cm9 as second ROM.
this kernel may not be compatible with some aokp based roms until they start using new cm9 convention for mount points. in that case use v3.1rc6.
increased min_free_kbytes to 16384 to see if it fixes wifi toggling issues (thanks to wjchen)
