OK those force closes are not attributed to the kernel.

So now the final step is very easy. We now need to delete an app that would normally brick the phone.

Such apps I can think of are google books and google videos which come in the form of a single app named videos.apk.

To delete this app, with any root explorer navigate to /system/app and delete videos.apk and videos.odex. Then reboot your phone. If all is well, your phone will boot up normally and we'll have confirmed success on the kernel.

Once you've done this, let me know.

Fantastic! You now have a fully working Kernel.

So now I'll start a new thread in a few minutes for the Kernel with all the details. When the thread is up, don't forget to swing by and click the thanks button. It's all I ask for in return for my time and work.

Thanks you for testing.

Ill be sure to thank the topic, and I enjoy testing things my only question is what is the next step to get a actual build of Clockwork recovery? and do you think now I would be able to flash the rom I made without getting status 7 error

OK it's now up....

[KERNEL][VS870]LOKI] Modded Unsecure Kernel

Now I have to test recovery for a similar phone and if it works for that one, then it'll work for this one. I'll keep checking in.

Your rom just needs some adjustments to boot. We'll cover that later on.

Sorry, I don't own this phone, so there's no troubleshooting I can really do without it.

You might have to check with the rest of the community in the non-root section to see if anyone else is having this issue or to troubleshoot it together.

So, now that we have a custom kernel and everything, is there anyone working on a rom? If not, where are some novice guides to whipping one in real quick? I would love a CM10 port but maybe something simpler to start? Any nudge in the right direction would be appreciated

Well, I guess if no one knows anything I'll just do it the hard way and figure it out, hopefully it won't take too long, lol. Google, here I come
