    k0nane presents...
    Electric Sheep kernel
    Speed, battery, fun things, yay!

    Source is available at http://github.com/k0nane.


    So, I know I'm a bit late on this, but... You wanted a custom kernel, here it is. This is best paired with Basix. A good deal of cool things have gone in here, but unfortunately, it does not include the one extra feature I wanted it to before release: user undervolting. Due to how our devices operate, undervolting is not included by default. This is to prevent lockups, and the endless numbers of questions that come with them (I've dealt with them before). Sorry.

    How about a feature list? Straight from the README, these are changes from the stock kernel, with credit-to names in ():

    This does not include the changes to the initramfs like included in the Basix stock kernel - so you'll still get root (it's up to date! Yay!) and custom boot animation.

    This kernel should not be used with stock unless you have package blocking removed, as the su binary in it is designed for Market-version Superuser.

    How To Install | The cool boot logo

    Flash in CWM. That's it.


    I do not use file hosts with waiting times!

    Q: How do I overclock?
    A: Use SetCPU from here or buy it on the Market.

    Q: How do I change Voodoo Sound parameters?
    A: Use Voodoo Control on the Market.

    1/29/12 - 1.0: SU binary updated.
    12/4/11 - 1.0: Initial release.


    A big thanks goes out to nubecoder and tanimn - this kernel stands on their backs, and they are giants. More thanks to Rodderik, nullghost, and DRockstar for contributions and assistance.

    Finally, I - and all of you Indulgers! - must thank mkasick, for without him, it would be be impossible to use the broken piece of crap that Samsung called a source release. F you Samsung.

    K0 It's been a long time coming. Having been one of the lucky few to test a few early versions of this kernel (when they were blowing through batteries like a Gameboy Color emulating a Game Gear) I can honestly say, thank you. This phone is not easy to tame, and this man stuck with getting nearly every feature everyone else gets on their custom kernels into this.




    I certainly have.

    Thanks for your support!

    I've reuploaded, with the newest su binary included. If you've downloaded before this post, redownload and reflash.

    excellent work by you and the team k0nane. does this kernel aid in getting bootup sounds to work more easily for everyone? I am doing a nandroid backup now, i'll let ya know how it goes afterwards. thank you very much sir.

    Just me, actually, the others only had code I borrowed, and lots of help. Though I couldn't do it without them!

    Sounds will not work. But I'll have that fixed at some point. I know what the problem is.

    Thanks for all the tireless work on our "unique" devices..
    I know your work has made this phone better than anyother prepaid I have tried.
    And certainly a 100% improvement over the stock ROM..

    You da man!!


    UPDATE: Stock battery life with 4g/GPS on the whole time, about 1 hour of surfing throughout the day, email set to push and about 10 min of navigation was about 7 hours. Never turned on wifi.

    And sound better, too! Voodoo Sound makes gives your phone sound quality nearly equal to that of very expensive audio setups.

    Trying out stock battery on this to test its life. Any recomendations on this K0? Wipe stats or something?

    And Voodoo sound is amazing I can finally retire my optimus as my mp3 player

    Charge to 100% with it off and wipe battery stats in CWM to calibrate.

    Hope I'm not going to sound stupid, but when I flash this I loose root. Any ideas? Have recovered once and tried it again with same result.

    On Basix. Checked to see if I had root with my backup root and es file explorer.

    There was a corruption problem with the su binary - redownload and reflash once more, and root will work.

    how to install?????? pliss
  17. plasticarmyman

    plasticarmyman Well-Known Member

    use recovery to do so...
    place the .zip on your sdcard of your phone..
    reboot to recovery and go to "flash .zip from sdcard" and then "choose zip from sdcard" and navigate to the file and click the camera button...then click yes...and then reboot the phone...and voila

    Great work as always. Messed around with O/Cing for a bit and definitely noticed a dramatic increase in speed. I'll check out Voodoo Sound in the coming hours as I listen to music for a while in the morning. I'll comment on battery life as well - calibrating the battery as we speak. Cheers k0.

    OMG thanks K0!! this kernel is amazing really top speed! One question though what does resetting the battery stats do and what is it for?

    So how do I make use of the Voodoo? and other features? It installed easily enough and I certainly believe that internally it's more stable (you'd be pretty hard pressed to do worse than Samsung after all!), but I'm not at all clear where I can find the "new" stuff...

    Thanks, as always. K0, you da man!!

    Go download voodoo control. Makes earphones louder and bass boost
    And some minor mic tweaks.

  25. k0nane

    k0nane Well-Known Member Developer

    Much more than that - Voodoo Sound being included, even without Voodoo Control, allows for better sound quality.

    Thanks for your support, everyone.
