IMPORTANT: Before you continue reading! At the moment this kernel is only for PrimoU devices and NOT for PrimoC (CDMA) devices
IMPORTANT for CM users If you want to use CM or a CM based ROM choose the correct kernel! CM9 needs a different ramdisk.
With the permission from Adi_Pat I would like to announce my kernel build All credits to this should go to Adi_Pat cause he did the hard work for providing me with all I need. Therefore also the name has been choosen to make this clearly visible.
This is just a first announcement. I will upload the first image tonight
Principle #1: Provide a kernel that is as close to stock as possible but provides additional features that will improve functionality and/or performance
Some Q&A you might have Q: what stands KISS for? A: Keep It Simple, Stupid! My aim is to provide a kernel that is 99.99% stock with just additional features In the first build you will see -OC (max 1.5) -UV -2 new goveners (lionheart, smartassV2) -1 new scheduler (sio)
Q:will you provide a kernel with 2.0GHz? A:No - since I want to provide a stable kernel and my experiences showed that only using up to 1.5 is reliable
If you like to have higher frequencies you can 1) use Adi_Pats kernel 2) build your own kernel based on my changes and enable higher frequencies
Q:can I build my own kernel based on your changes? A:sure. I will provide a patch file that can be applied on the original sources provided from HTC
Q:how "close" is your kernel to stock? A:actually if you dont use OC, UV and use govener=ondemand and scheduler=deadline this IS stock kernel
Q:can you include feature "xy" in your build? A:I will check and if it is not "against" principle #1 -Yes
Q:will you test your kernel builds? A:yes. I will only provide images that have been tested to 1) boot without problems 2) have run through a basic test trying to include all important features 3) run some benchmarks to confirm that changes are not decreasing basic performance values
Q:how to install your kernel? A:like titanium kernel fastboot flash boot
