    Is it recommended to use Anthrax? How is the performance/battery life? Thanks

    I THINK this is the latest version, can't remember where I ended up finding it. Only ran it for a day and it performed flawlessly, as for battery life I haven't used it enough to say.

    David,

    Can you link me to where Chad expresses that, please?

    I've look at his site and don't see anything there...I've heard that there might be a post or thread here?

    Thanks!

    originally it was just what people were telling me...
    but your post caused me to do some research...
    here are some quotes (its a long read so i bolded the important stuff):

    as you can see, the kernel is only available to members of the "organization."
    In Section one, the "organization" is defined as anthrax-kernels.us. So unless you are a member of anthrax-kernels.us, you should not have access to the kernel.

    It's more GPL rules. This forum is public, his site is private. GPL loophole says he can keep the source code private if he doesn't distribute the kernel publicly. If someone posts it here on a public site and gets asked for source, they're responsible for coming up with the source they can't get since they're now distributing the kernel publicly.

    I think it's a bunch of ego-inflating nonsense that's bad for the community as a whole, so I don't use his kernel.

    Thanks guys!

    Yeah, I tried to find that stuff on the Anthrax site, but unfortunately you've got to be a member (signed-up) to be able to view it (but you don't have to to read the discussions about "other things" as alluded to) and I'm not a member. Would be nice if those policies were available to the public at-large ;) :).

    I was looking for a reinforcement here so it didn't seem like we were asking that a download link was to be taken down for no reason.

    It's always a good practice to cite/source/link downloadable files from the original / official source unless you are the author or owner of the work in question.

    I see that the download links have already been edited-out by the guys above--thank you all--much appreciated :).

    Just a side note but the reason chad does his work privately is because most evo 3d devs have a history to kang/steal chads work without giving him any credit; and chad being a awesome experienced kernel dev, have a lot of work/code/fixes/improvements that would be stolen on the spot. I'm not going to go into much detail but chad also have had legal trouble with HTC for not sharing his source(yes he is that good). As a ex-developer and as a human being, getting your work kanged and not getting any credit is a horrible feeling especially when the dev that many denies kanging until you show proof.

    Usually Midnight ROM has the latest Anthrax Kernel. You could always download the ROM and get the boot.img from there
