    As promised, I compiled the kernel from the new 2.3.6 source.
    Currently it is in zImage format, I have not flashed it to my phone yet, but you are welcome to test and download and look it over to make sure there are no errors, it compiled flawlessly

    it can be downloaded here:

    MediaFire Link

    the next step is to repair my build environment for ROMs and compile a stock rom out of the "platform" source, I dont have an estimated time frame

    zImage files are not text files, this is a fully compiled kernel.

    How do you use it?: Inject it into a flashable zip.

    IE: download Chev's rom (which will come in a .zip format)
    and then replace the zImage file inside of it with mine.

    Here's the deal though, this kernel is more for folks who are working on compiling a rom with the new 2.3.6 sources, it will mostly be useless for anyone else (save for a few imbeded bug fixes)
