Siyah v3.1.1 is out!!

Changelog (from da site):
- 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)

Basically it explained what Slug already did!

Edit: ironass you crafty man! Too quick for me

SiyahKernel v3.1.2 is out

Changelog:

fixed cm9 mount point problems
modifications in secondrom booting and mounting methods. you will be able to mount both sdcards using USB Mass Storage mode in the second ROM. just make sure you don’t delete “.secondrom” folder
cm9 as second rom should behave just the same as primary. no more emmc/sdcard swapping. removal of external sdcard will not affect functioning of any app.

I'm going to give v3.1.2 a try with D4 v7.0, just out of curiosity. I'm real happy with v3.1 so far - no problems and better idle drain overnight than GingerMOD with v2.6.14.

Wish me luck.....

edit:
Bloomin' Nora.....

The good news is that v3.1.2 works.
The bad news is that I'm completely confuddled as to wtf is going on with the storage. I got internal mounted as /emmc, external as /sdcard, CWM only recognises external and Setttings/Storage shows external as internal and vice versa!

Now reverting to my v3.1 backup to compare and maybe make sense.

edit#2:
Using v3.1, internal storage mounts as /sdcard and external as /emmc. Enabling the "D4 ROM" option "External SD on /sdcard/external_sd" creates the sub-folder in /sdcard but with no content. CWM only recognises the internal storage volume (/sdcard). Settings/Storage reports correctly.

I'll stick with this config.

I'm running v3.1 and i have been getting a lot of the kworker process. Has anyone else been getting this? I've never had them high like this before on any of the previous GB kernels.

Siyah kernel v3.2beta1 is up!

"Changelog:

User selectable frequency table. Available frequencies are: (in MHz) 1600, 1500, 1400, 1300, 1200, 1100, 1000, 900, 800, 700, 600, 500, 400, 300, 200, 100, 50, 25.

I had hydrog3n on with this beta last night and lost 36% in 6 hours! Don't know if it's kernel or ROM related as there were no suspicious wakelocks. It got stuck on 800mhz part through the night due to a gps call.
I'm back on d4 with the previous siyah for now. May try this beta on this ROM later.

3.2b2 is up
Changelog:

updated bcmdhd wifi drivers.

fixed cpufreq_stats problems. if you change frequency steps, stats table will be recreated. since that change is meant to be made during boot I didn’t care about ActivityManager crashes. if you change freq steps while your device is running you will have a tiny soft restart of your UI because old stats table pointer will be stale.

increased gamma step count to 25 as in GB kernel to have smoother transitions.

fixed lulzactive problems because of dynamic freq step changes.
changed touch sensitivity values for charging state and set them the same as GB values

native aosp led notifications

led_timeout for cm9/aosp/aokp roms

merge with upstream

Linux 3.0.30 ARM_UNWIND

Downloading Siyah v3.2 beta2-2 (that's a mouthful!)

One of the changes says "native aosp led notifications", I wonder how that works with SGS2?

Once rooted, and on a BLN enabled kernel, you can install the BLN control app from the market, and when you get a new text message, your white LEDs behind the menu and back buttons will come on and stay on until you use your phone. If you purchase the Pro app, they will also work for missed calls.

Just go into the app you downloaded, tick Enable, and that's all you need to do.

However, if you use the stock messaging app, you may have problems on some ROMs. I couldnt get it working on AndyX or Wanamlite, but it works fine on AndyX using Hancent.

SiyahKernel v3.2b4 is up

Changelog:

new feature: breathing effect for native bln implementation. to enable: “echo 1 > /sys/class/misc/notification/breathing” it will only work when bln notification is active.

set touchscreen threshold settings to cm9 settings.

bln options configurable in ExTweaks app. we have enable/disable BLN checkbox, notification timeout, breathing on/off, led timeout (for cm9 or some AOSP roms which do not have led timeout settings) and testing BLN button.

make sure that you do not have blinking enabled if you want to use breathing effect in BLN. also, use only one notification timeout setting, either in ExTweaks or BLNPro app.

Beta 5 is now out.

SiyahKernel v3.2b5
Posted on May 1, 2012
Changelog:

fixed some BLN problems
CM9 ROMs: lights will stay off after BLN if you disabled lights, stay on if you have them enabled.
if you set lights timeout, lights will turn on when you touch keypad or screen and turn off again after the timeout (just as in Samsung ROMs)
removed breathing setting and added bln_effect setting. available options are “steady”, “breathing” and “blinking”.
added breathing_start (mV), breathing_end (mV), breathing_period (ms), breathing_step (mV) interfaces to notification miscdevice. further customizations are possible by modifying those such as faster blinking or less brighter breathing.
touchscreen sensitivity is changed again
testing old GB hotplug (thanks to Entropy512 for porting it)

Guys, i have just installed AndyX v12 on my S2 and had a couple of questions.

Im trying to see if i prefer AndyX as opposed to Checkrom Revo HD6 which i have been running for a few weeks now and has been pretty solid.

However, i love messing with my stuff and was wondering if i should also install Siyah on top of AndyX.

The ony thing i have noticed so far is some major lag in scrolling on AndyX when running the Cosmic Flow live wallpaper. Now it has only been on a couple of hours, so it's early days yet.

You can install Siyah v3.x.x on AndyX no problems. Siyah 3.x.x is ICS whilst Siyah 2.x.x is GB. And ICS in general has those scrolling issues, not just AndyX I'm afraid.

Looks like downloads are working again

Edit: The new version is sound as a pound.

Does BLN light up with other notifications (facebook, twitter, email messages?) or just sms?

Sorry I'm just clarifying here, but you said prefer it to AndyX? Siyah is a kernel, whereas AndyX is a rom. AndyX comes with its own Modem, Kernel and Firmware, so Siyah essentially overwrites AndyX's Kernel, not AndyX itself. So you won't physically see much difference once Siyah is flashed.

Bad news

Gokhan is going to have to send his GS2 into a service centre due to a screen fault. This can take up to 20 days to rectify.

Even worse news....he'll be going over to a GS3 if it can't be fixed.

Anyone got a spare GS2 to send to him?

He's the developer of Siyah, and is probably the most technically gifted and helpful developer working on the GS2.

Tried to find that name on his page for Siyah, could not find it. Neither her on the board. Sorry! I know!! If he is the ONE, we NEED HIM to keep up the good work! What a man

Siyah kernel 3.2b7 is up!

"Changelog:

added format SecondROM system, data and cache partitions.
enabled kernel panic timeout
nandroid backup of SecondROM
nandroid restore to SecondROM (kernel will not be restored if you restore to SecondROM). restoring data partition will take long because formatting a loop mounted image file takes long.
fixed wifi “Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at virtual address 00000000″ problem in wl_cfg80211_connect
lots of new patches&backports (for lowmemorykiller, bcmdhd and arm related) from myfluxi’s repo (thanks to myfluxi)
support for NTT-Docomo variant (you will need to “echo 16 > /proc/sys/kernel/rom_feature_set” to get gps working. I hope someone will prepare a flashable CWM file for ntt-docomo variant)
disabled smooth scaling for all governors except for ondemand
changed conservative governor settings a little

I am not sure if this is good or bad, but service center will replace my LCD with a new one on monday and it will only take several hours. they even let me continue to use my phone and they ordered the part.
it seems that I will keep the phone for a while
s3 is good. looks lovely and I expect that the battery improvement will be very big.. but s2->s3 is not a big change as in s->s2.

really sorry about this noob question guys, i have a samsung galaxy s2 running andyx v12 rom, i am using the kernal that just got installed with that up to now.

i am pretty new to roms and and has only just been recently i started using them, i have never flashed a kernal but from the looks of this siyah kernal it looks worth it.

can i ask:

if i download the zip version can i just go into CWM and go to flash kernal and select the file? will it just update the kernal and thats it, or will i loose any apps / data etc?

or with kernals is it just as simple as updating it and you dont have to do anything else apart from enjoy it?

anyway sorry about the basic questions i just want to know what to expect before i try.

james

Your apps and other data will be untouched.

Prior to flashing the new kernel it might be advisable to run the GS2Wiper script (found here) in case AndyX uses its own kernel-specific config files.

thanks for the info slug, i have downloaded the files just not done it yet, i noticed that early today a newer version of siyah is out already, looking on the site where you download siyah, a new one seems to come out every few days lol

if i am not that interested inover / under clocking, is it worth me moving to the siyah kernel? ive tried to search around but i cant find a great deal on what advantages it has apart from the obvious being able to control voltage etc..

does putting siyah on my phone general make it a bit more solid compared to the stock kernel, or what ever andyx uses in his rom?

or will i see no difference at all unless i want to change them voltage settings / cpu speed?

Only if you explicitly allow them, apparantly. I've just flashed b8 over b7 and it honoured my existing ExTweak settings completely i.e. 5-step + 1400MHz.
