    When updating to new version, do the ex tweaks settings stay on phone or do we need to input them again

    Edit. Has this release been withdrawn, link not working

    The 'Warning: only tested on stock 4.0.3 ROM.' - does this refer to the kernel bug? Or would I be safe to flash this anyway?

    No its not withdrawn Syd. If it was, Gok would take the link down at source. Probably a temporary server error. The usual CWM/Odin links are now up on the Siyah page.

    You can be safe in the knowledge that Siyah will not have the kernel bug. To say that its only tested on 4.0.3 basically means it will still have the problems associated with 4.0.4 ie. Video,camera and bluetooth, because as far as I know, 4.0.4 kernel sources have still to be released (or at least if they have, the problems have still not been fixed)

    can confirm that the new version is fully working on AOKP 4.0.4 rootbox rom

    although i take no responsibilty blah blah blah

    Siyah has always worked on AOKP/CM9/AOSP 4.0.4
    Sammy 4.0.4 ROMs are another matter, having bluetooth, camera and video issues

    posted that as it was mentioned " Warning: only tested on stock 4.0.3 ROM"

    I know mate, but that 4.0.3 comment was put up on the Siyah site beacuse it's still not 100% compatible with stock 4.0.4 as Samsung have not released the kernel sources as far as I know (or at least if they have, the issues have not been sorted), and this is quite different to AOKP 4.0.4. All Siyah versions are 100% ok with AOKP 4.0.4

    I have renamed the thread to include, "A Dummies Guide" in the title and have completely re-written post #1 to feature a beginners, step-by-step guide, with video, on installing the Siyah ICS kernel.

    Bizzarely enough I'm getting much better battery life from the 'performance' profile on 3.4 than the 'default' or 'battery' profiles. On Rootbox 1.6.

    Any suggestions as to why this is the case?

    dont know much about the brickbug. so just a short q. please advise. i am using RR 2.6.1 with the latest siyah kernel. does that mean i dont have to worry at all, about the BRICKBUG, if i flash the latest LPO firmware over the current RR rom?? (coz i think i saw somewhere that the siyah kernels are safe of the brickbug)
    thank you

    Does the RR rom come with a Siyah kernel? When you flash a new ROM there is a kernel bundled with it. Some come with Siyah & some come with other kernels.

    Only one teensy flaw in that cunning plan 1981... when you flash the stock LPO firmware over RR it will replace the Siyah kernel you currently have with the stock LPO, brick bug, kernel unless you follow the instructions here, theoretically, as I have not attempted this myself... and nor do I want to! :ahhhhh:

    JB support?
    I wonder if this means all the 4.0.4 bugs are now ironed out.
    BT was already fixed by Tungstwenty which was in 3.4.1, but camera/video had to have a patch by Tungstwenty applied, so perhaps Gok has incorporated this fix into 3.5?

    Guess I'll have to dredge through the xda thread again!....

    Every time I see the word, "imminent", I just know that it won't be!

    My favourite use of, "imminent" is here on March, 30th, 2012...

    ... followed, some 3.5 months later on July, 15th, 2012, by this.

    I just knew before I checked the link that it would relate to Checkrom v7, but I had to click to be sure :D

    Oh do behave sflannery07! You don't honestly think I would let Hawker live that one down do you? ;)

    So... less than 3.5 months then? :D
