    yes that's just it ...... Pretty good. Not amazing - I find mac kernel, buttered toast, and jmz kernel are all more stable with similar features

    You have to jump thru hoops and hop up and down on one foot to get a kernel. I was just on the site. I figured I would download the latest kernel for the hell of it . before he bans me for expressing my opinion ..lol ...... you need passwords and all the links are all jumbled together. Highly unorganized. I dont care about his kernel or his work, he Can keep it.

    I kinda agree with this, however it seems like the other 3 kernels break wi-first on jb roms (anthrax is the only one that works, unless I'm doing something wrong lol)

    The bulletin you quoted says that it's because of the lawsuits he's had to deal with and the court cases are probably public record in California if anyone wants more details.

    He's made it clear that he doesn't want it discussed in the forums on his website, so registered users should avoid that or risk getting banned, even when Chad cites incidents that he wants to share.

    this really says how horrible a person is. this means you go out and seek cases to try and win them for whatever reason. it shows how much somebody is willing to stir crap up. im really about tired of that jerks mouth and his goons who act like freakin gods, all for a kernel that all he did was tweak up and attack anyone who tried to make one of their own, harrasing developers for source and proof left and right all while hiding in his private site. this isnt what android is about. its supposed to be about humans taking back control from the telecoms with open source software.

    chad just needs to grow up.


    (oh and a wild guess, hes going to court with someone over a kernel, might be wrong but i really dont give a ....)

    Well that's a dumb statement to make since all those kernels listed are based off of Anthrax. Maybe you should do some research before you post ignorant comments.

    I'm not an Anthrax goon and actually prefer to use willyg's ButteredToast version of that kernel, especially now that the Evo 3D compatible kernel seems to have stabilized. However, there are always two sides to a story and anyone that cares to know what Chad's perspective is on this drama can read this profile on Pocketables.

    He is a legitimate developer and has some valid concerns about getting recognition for his contributions, but I don't always agree with how he expresses them. According to Chad the licensing violation suits have been filed against him but I haven't researched the court records and can't confirm or deny that.

    its kinda like pasta. The Chinese invented it. But the Italians perfected it. Those kernels might of been based of Anthrax. But they are far more stable

    Take cover everyone, flames are coming!

    Seriously tho, there are 2 sides to every story, well, and the truth. I don't support anyone in particular, I support the amazing work created. It's sad that everyone can't just get along, that holds back technology development anywhere and everywhere. Imagine how much better kernels and different software would be if everyone worked together instead of finger pointing for recognition.

    While I agree you shouldn't have to jump through hoops to attain such software, Anthrax 3.7.0 has been the most stable and best performing kernel I have ever worked with. Sure I had to do quite a bit of editing in certain files to get it working for me just right, but I enjoy doing it and it has paid off well with how my phone performs.

    Buttered toast is sort of the xda version of Anthrax. All you have to do is look at their git to realize your mistake. There is also no need to bash the developers. Its not like you bought the kernel. If you do not like it, simply ignore it.

    Interesting read. And that type of stuff is going to happen in any field. I use to have photoshop work ripped off all the time. Some people are thieves and thats how its gonna be. Take pride in knowing you were the original and quit crying about what people say. Bc in the end, their opinions dont mean a damn thing.

    all I was saying Is buttered toast and JMZ kernel are more stable than Anthrax. I dont care that they are built off its source. In the end I guess what i mean is you can use these kernels and dont have to pull teeth to get them. Chad seems to go to far with mods and tweaks making for a buggy kernel.

    It's just a kernel, why make so much drama about something like that. Move on people.

    Cause some people don't appreciate work of others and steal instead. Chad didn't have to release his amazing work to the public, but he chose to, cause he thought that it could benefit the communities. Now, he's just being kanged, cheated off, and penalized for it. Now when most people think of Chad Goodman, they think of someone who took the work of the more elite, when in fact Chad has been humiliated and ripped off by the ones who he's tried to help.

    He goes after other devs because that is the same exact thing they went after him for and got him banned from xda.

    Android is not about about taking back control from telecoms, it's about making money for Google. Open source just happened to be an easy way to get market share.

    Don't act like Chad is the only one being involved with the drama. every developer involved has basically acted like a group of toddlers, pointing fingers and pushing legal action.

    What I think is sick is that they are having court battles over kennel source code while it took htc 6 MONTHS to post our kennel source. Half a year after release. No one has taken any legal action against them. Why the double standard?

    Well that seriously sucks since he was cheated by people he helped. Hope he gets this resolved.


    Who knew android would get this complicated. It's funny because these are just phones (well these are more like little laptops). :p

    Let me just say that as a third party, he should just come here since its not the first time that devs were screwed by Xda. WE ALL KNOW CHAD CREATED THE KERNEL and say what you want, its the only fully working kernel which overclocks the GPU perfectly on 3D and 2D on Gangnam Style. Want to bash other kernels? Bring something to the table and then say something.

    Wow, I'm kind'a glad I don't have a clue to what's going on.
    I think I'll keep it that way too.

    y'all have fun
