    Maybe he included extra governors. You can install SetCPU and take a look if there are CPU governors like smartassv2, lagfree, etc. those would indicate a custom kernel.

    How did you build this? Did HTC release the ICS kernel source somewhere?

    I flashed using flash image gui. Seems faster but then again there really is no way to tell if it actually worked

    Source wasn't released yet so I can't add governers, schedulers, or overclock without breaking something..... But I can improve kernels like I did with this one

    If it (Kernel) flashed successfully and your phone has improved......

    Anthrax is a hybrid kernel between Evo 3D 2.3 Source and CM9 4.0.4 Source that's why theres No 3D, 4G, USB Mass Storage, ect......

    I don't think I flashed it right.

    I have S-ON and I just flashed the zip through 4ext.

    Aren't I supposed to do something else?

    What are the exact steps to installing a kernel with S-ON?

    You gotta extract the boot.img from the zip then select "flash boot image" in 4EXT in the recovery menu then find the boot.img you extracted then select it.

    You're not paying just to flash a kernel. You're paying for someone's dedicated work that happens to work really well.

    I tried it out and thought $3 was justified. I have no regrets.

    No rooting is essential to rooting. Flashing a kernel is essential to flashing a kernel but requires rooting. So rooting is essential to kernel flashing but not the other way around.

    You want free go get s off. It's not like 4 ext is the only way to flash a kernel.

    That's what I meant.

    I don't feel like S-OFFing, nor do I feel like flashing another recovery.
