    Title is pretty self-explanatory. I am making a CM7 port (and I am lazy and want to use an existing kernel), so which one is your favorite?

    Choices are:
    1. Plague Kernel (Developed by PlayfulGod; used in Black Plague ROM)
    2. Blitzkerig Kernel (Developed by mtmichaelson; used in Broken Out ROM)
    3. Kernel Number 2 (Modified by Idrifta; used in ROM Number 2)
    4. Stock ZVA (Developed by LG; used in Stock ROM)

    If you are unsure as to how to tell which kernel ypu like most, just look at your battery life and responsivenss. Why? Because the kernel mainly controls your CPU.

    I am using the blitzkerig kernel right now in rom#2 Because of the responsiveness that i get with it and because i like the interactive governor. But #2's kernel comes in as a close 2nd imo at least till ldrifta ports his speed unleashed kernel over for us. Thx for ur future efforts in trying to make our phone's more kick ass

    Blitzkerig for its overclocking
    Number 2 for battery life
    If you could overclock number 2 it would be best hands down I like having as many options as possible :D

    Kernel #2 is built into ROM #2. It is not available as a separate download like the other 2. I know how to extract it from a ROM. Just not able to do so at this very second.

    EDIT: Other 3 (forgot I listed stock)

    I think ldrifta already extracted it cause I have it on my sd card as a flashable .zip. I believe it is in one of his posts but I'm not sure which one at the moment.


    Edit: I found it and bumped it to the top for ya

    I think cm7 comes with the theme engine. At least it did when I had the ascend.

    Y thank u for that, I have missed cm7 since I got rid of my old ascend and am looking forward to this cm7 on this phone because I dont think the old phone did it justice. It was great dont get me wrong but I feel that it'll b a lot smoother on a phone of this caliber. :)
